This might be my least favorite book in this series. *cue gasps* It would get 3.5 feathers if we did half ratings.  However, it was still a great book, and such a romantic story of lovers reunited.

Evan Monroe… we know him as Elec’s playboy brother, who swore he would never marry. Hot body and a sweet talker, he can charm his way into any girls pants. What we didn’t know was that 10 years ago he was ready to propose to his girlfriend, Kendall. And then she broke his heart without an explanation. This is where I started “not liking” Kendall.

When we find out the reason why she dumped Evan I just wanted to roll my eyes and shake some sense into her. Even so, Evan wants her back because he realizes he’s still in love with her.

Except now she’s also a driver. This throws a whole new set of problems at them, and again, I feel she doesn’t deal with this situation well. When we finally get a happy moment there’s a twist that I was expecting and almost predicted at one point, and she almost ruins their relationship for good.

Maybe I just like Evan too much, but I was in his corner throughout this whole book, and even though there’s been a bit of lack of communication in every book in this series, this one just had a lot of immaturity.

In the end they get their HEA and Evan makes a decision that I’m a bit surprised about but it’s a nice turn of events.

Of course, I had to read the excerpt for the next book! I wasn’t too sure if I would want to read a book about Tuesday, however, we learn a bit more about her in The Chase because she’s Kendall’s best friend, so I was a bit interested. After reading the excerpt all I have to say is it sounds like it’ll be a fun book and I can’t wait to read it!
