Somehow, after everything they've been through, Jake Caplin and Charley Redford made their way back to one another. But finding each other and staying together are two completely different things.When Charley's world is flipped upside down, she begins to question the decisions she's made since her arrival in Edinburgh, and she believes that she must sacrifice her love for Jake to keep what she holds most dear.

Returning to the States for her senior year, Charley struggles to find peace and happiness. While everyone else seems to be finding themselves in college, Charley is terrified that, along with almost everything else that's important to her, she's lost herself.While friends and family deal with their own tumultuous lives, there is one person resolved to uncover the reason behind Charley's sudden defection and unhappiness. Refusing to give up without a fight, Jake believes that he is the only one who can truly understand what Charley is going through, and this time he's determined to prove that he's there for her no matter what obstacles are thrown in their way.

I Love Samantha Young, but this is a miss for me

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the first book in this series but would probably skip this follow up book. The story alternates between past and present day, which can work in some books, but in this case, it is the very near past vs. present, and I think it becomes somewhat confusing (particularly if you do not have the opportunity to listen to the book in a single setting). I also did not particularly like the narrator for this book (it felt more like someone was reading the book to me than "narrating" the book). In fairness, I did not have much difficulty with the same narrator in the first book. Perhaps, the story overall in the first book was so good that I did not notice a somewhat generic "reading" feeling that permeated this book. Again, I would rate Samantha Young's books amongst some of my all time favorites (I LOVED the Dublin Street books), and I will likely continue to read every book that she writes - for the angst, compelling story, sizzling romance and fantastic characterization. However, while this book has some moments of that brilliance, it did not deliver the overall experience of her other books.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
