It's been so long and so many books since I read the original generation of this author that I honestly read this as a standalone. I really wouldn't have even known that this was a second generation except I was absolutely besotted with the first generation and getting sprinkles of them through this was like a cherry on top.


But Gigi and Ryder were their own special flavour of awesome. Although I'll admit this did start out a little shaky for me, I think that was because I was listening to the audio version, and it took me a minute to get my head around all the different characters. And with the general storyline I kept getting confused as to who was friends with whom and if they were in on the different things going on.


I liked the fact these guys were young and in college and actually acted like twenty-year-olds finding themselves. They made mistakes and they learnt from them. And once they got over the misunderstandings they talked like adults and got on with it. A few times Gigi made decisions I didn't like but I could see where she was coming from. Plus, she owned her actions and didn't try to make excuses.


The pacing felt a little rushed and there were a lot of details I could have done without. I'm guessing that is in part to set the stage for the next books in the series and I'm definitely going to be adding them to the TBR as soon as they are announced.
