This story just left me feeling cold. The characters and story were well written but I was looking for something a little more "feel good" and this..Show More » wasn't it.
A romance based on cheating is a hard sell anyway and it's hard to stand up for the protagonist when she isn't taking responsibility for her actions and is constantly rationalizing them by pointing out what a jerk her friend is.
The friend is selfish, so it was disgruntling to find myself feeling bad for her. The boyfriend was weak and I couldn't get on board for someone so spineless, and Rachel, the lead, just seemed to be trying to show how much more she deserved the guy.
This stuff happens in real life. The story is a much more realistic version than what I wanted it to be but, in real life, I avoid these people.
If you are like me, you are thinking of this book because you loved "Something Borrowed" and want to see what happens to the characters. Know that thi..Show More »s book delivers. You have to wade through more than half of it before you get to anything remotely good (the first have is a rehashing of the first book from Darcy's perspective), but the second half is more than worth it. You get to see Darcy slowly transform from a whiny, annoying, one-note character into one that you eventually like. You fall in love with Ethan. And you get to explore London! You also get a resolution to a lot of the storylines left unfinished from the first book. I was happy to see an ending for Dex and Rachel as well. If you enjoyed the first one, this one is worth it, just stick through the first half, trust me.
