Annie and Hank have created a perfect life in Laguna Beach, but when a dark secret is revealed, will their marriage survive?
In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she's living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There's only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that, if revealed, could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, a man who saved her from the heartache.

I liked Hank's and Donnie's characters the best. I also liked how the author described the chemistry between characters.
I didn't like the way the plot was just suddenly resolved without any details. It felt rushed and anticlimactic. I also didn't like Annie's secret. I found one of her actions in the first book to be disappointing, but the keeping of her secret in this one was even more so. She was such a nice character throughout the book that it made it difficult for me to believe she would do something so heinous to someone she loved.
The most interesting parts were the parts that took place at UCI ten years earlier. The least interesting parts were the present day scenes, primarily because they lacked the same level of detail.
Her handling of male voices. They didn't sound that different from her female voices. Perhaps she could team up with a man and do dual narration. My favorite narrations are by a duo.
I think the story could have been much better if it weren't so rushed at the end. The author built some great suspense but then just kind of deflated it.
