Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are back and are dealing with the fallout of the events from the last book. Sadie who is usually so chipper and bright is down in the dumps. After finding out that her ‘soul mate’ Austin was already married, she can’t seem to get out of her funk. She knows she needs to move on and start enjoying the city and her friends again, but after what Austin did to her, how can she trust anyone ever again? Things get more interesting when Austin and Sadie finally have the confrontation post marriage reveal.
Darcy is dealing with the fact that her long time boyfriend Logan has come to New York City and the reason he came was because of her. He wants to get back together, but she isn’t so sure she can trust him again. Not after what he did to end things, and also because she had just decided that her and Jude were going to become exclusive.
Rosanna is still trying to move on from the events that caused her to have trust issues, but it isn’t going so well. Not when she still has to figure out why the hell Addison would tell such lies about her and have it in for her when they have never even met. Thankfully, she has D, who she is allowing – although grudgingly – to spoil her with a trip to South Beach. Things can’t be going better between them, except she always clams up when he asks about her life back home and an old friend of his – Shayla – comes back into his life with problems that she can only tell D.
Before I get into the nitty gritty of my review, I have to warn you. I was not in the best mood when I started reading this book. I was stressed out and sleep deprived and I might have taken it out on these characters a little, because when Lost in Love started, I did not like the trio of girls at all. They were handling things all wrong and I seriously, just wanted to reach into the book and smack some sense into them DiNozzo style. However, once Sadie got out of her funk things started to look up. Darcy and Sadie were the characters I remembered from book 1 and their plot lines kept me flipping pages. The Austin/Sadie confrontation was pretty epic. I was not expecting him to actually leave his wife for her. The Logan situation for Darcy was just downright hair pull worthy. I cannot wait to see what Darcy does him now that she knows the truth. Hopefully this means Jude will come back into the picture?
As for Rosanna, the girl needs to get a grip. I understand that she went through some traumatic things in her childhood and that she is stressing something serious about the money issue, but to project all that onto friends who are just trying to help you? Not cool. She needs to open up a little and talk things out, not keep it bottled up inside! The whole thing with D, too, drove me absolutely nuts. Instead of being so judging about it, she could have just talked it through with him rationally. Although, I have to admit at the end of the book when she admits what happened to her to him I was jumping for joy. Hopefully this continues into the next book!
Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. A great continuation of what began in City Love, with some minor issues with the characters that resolved itself by the end of the book.
Bookshelf worthy? All of Colasanti’s works are on my Kindle wish list. I’m just waiting for the prices to come down.
