But there are cracks in Rowan's life that threaten to send her future crumbling to the ground. When her relationship begins to suffer, her father returns and her long-held secret is discovered, Rowan must find the courage to fight for the most important thing yet-herself.
It's been about 100 books since I listened to the first book on Audible, and I wasn't sure if I would be able to pick it up easily. I usually don't like waiting so long between books in a series because I forget too much.
That was definitely not the case here. It was easy to get back into the story and I felt like I had just finished book one, it was all so fresh in my mind. I was quite impressed with how well the author transitioned between the two.
Oh my gawd, the drama. I loved it! I could hardly put it down. I wanted so badly to just get inside the book and punch certain people in the face. I was actually shaking with anger at one point. That's how cool I am.
I'm glad I agreed to continue this series. It was worth the read, and I absolutely cannot wait to begin the next book.
