“We have such a long history that when I look into his eyes that's all I can see. I forget the stupidity of what we've done and who could get hurt. I just remember the man who loved me once”
This second installment gives at the same time a different but still similar feeling to the previous one and you just can't help, be sucked in another emotional roller-coaster.
The chapters still alternates between the past and present but nor from Jack and Lexi BUT on Ramsey and Lexi.
The book begins with Ramsey calling asking her to go with him to Jack's wedding...it has been a year since the previous events and we get the feeling that Ramsey and Lexi used to be a couple.
So yes, my interest picked up hugely from that.
So the past this time, is how Ramsey and Lexi relationship developed.
Now, by the end of the previous one, I couldn't see Jack as a really option for Lexi anymore.
They have such a destructive and f*cked up relationship. And after what he´d done (the birthday scene , i wanted to punch him in the face), i seriously said "you go girl"when she found closure and put it all behind her back, trying to be her and not obsessing over him.
Then Ramsey, gets in the picture, and when he is around i can't help but to think "Jack who?".
He gives her everything that Jack couldn't (well wouldn't do), he is crazy about her and just wants to be with her.
He is thoughtful, can be romantic and a tease, can be serious and funny, mysterious and sexy. We learn that he have "baggage", and he does screw up to, but he isn't afraid to apologize and try to make it better, he admits when he was wrong, a thing Jack never did.
And the chemistry between them?
The story also shows Lexi "growing up",thinking before acting, realizing she was always avoiding responsibility and just finally seeing all her mistakes and try not to do it all over again .
