So I have a confession to make. After reading the first book, I loved it enough to start this next book right away. And then I devoured it in less than a day. Oops.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw this book would be in the original antagonist's POV but the Emma Doherty did a brilliant job in swaying me over. Though Abigail starts off with the typical kind of behaviour she portrayed from the first book, she really surprised me by how much she matured and changed throughout the story. By the end I was really happy for her even though she isn't even a real life person 😂 But that goes to show that it was really well written in emotional and character departments. I think my only qualm was that the characters winked too much and I always find winking in books weird because who actually winks normally in everyday conversations? Lol
In terms of the romance aspect, I agree with some other reviews that it's not as central as it feels in the first book, but I didn't mind that so much. The book was more focused on personal growth (coming of age and all that). That isn't to say there isn't any romance at all. I think Abigail and Brett's relationship developed really well in a natural, realistic way. And I thought Abbie's developing feelings for him was super cute and sweet too. There's enough romance to satisfy me and I usually only read romance so that's saying something 😂
Anyway, I'm excited to check out and read more the author's other books now!!

This book was pretty good but I have to say that there wasn’t nearly enough lovey dovey scenes in it. In the first book the romance is really good but in this one they only kiss once and most of it is about studying to graduate high school and her family problems. As I said before there wasn’t enough romance in this.
