Ethan Fisher is college bound- surprising, even to him. Ethan knows he will run into Courtney eventually, and he is determined to have another chance to be the man she thought he was. If it is even possible for her to speak to him without throwing her coffee in his face. He’s willing to take his chances in hopes that the infatuation of their summer love can hold up in the real world. 

Courtney Ross feels like she just stepped out of a time machine. She thought going away to college involved some sort of "growing up," so why is she now being thrown into last year? She really doesn't know if she's ready to forgive and forget.

In this sequel- equally delicious as its predecessor- learn how this winding tale of love and heartbreak unfolds.

My Thoughts:

I was sent a novel by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

If you read my review for the first novel in this series you know that I absolutely loved it, and was completely devastated with the ending, but I forgave the author because I had the sequel; which I was able to start Immediately.  Just when I thought I couldn’t love Ethan any more I get the sequel written in his perspective and I fall for him even harder; his character growth was immense in this book and I loved every single second of it and the way he treats Courtney had me in the clouds! I loved Courtney so much, she has come a long way her character growth is the most noticeable; even though at some points in the books I did want to tell her to relax a bit and deal with things as they came, but that just wouldn’t be like Courtney.

I loved how the author made this novel show the real struggles that all couples have and showed us that both characters had flaws they had to work on, and how their love for each other was so great that they learned to see past their flaws and love each other more because of them. I have really come to love these characters, I don’t think I have ever read a book where I can relate with the characters so much or where I can see myself meeting them in real life and becoming best friends with them. The ending for this novel could not have been more perfect! I was in tears and just wanted to pull out all the characters and give them the biggest group hug.  Another thing that I love about these novels is that in the beginning of every chapter there is a song title and the author has made a playlist you can listen to as you read, it just takes the reading experience to a whole new level, it makes you feel closer to the story and the characters.

If you haven’t picked these novels up, I highly recommend them! I devoured both book in less than a week. It is the perfect summer read or if you are looking for a good contemporary read.
