5 Stars(Avoiding Series 1)
Jack and Lexi never had a typical relationship. After 2 years without speaking, she receives a phone call that changes everything. He unexpectedly asks her to convince the new girl, Bekah, that he's ready to commit. Jack is calling now after everything they had been through because there is another woman. She can't believe it. Follow Lexi in this heart wrenching drama as she relives her past relationship, or lack thereof, with Jack, and not just in her own mind, but to his fiance-to-be. Throw in Bekah's hot brother who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, a past with more secrets to unravel than you can even imagine, and you get a recipe for disaster. Find out what happens to Lexi as she travels to Atlanta to get the closure she so desperately desires from Jack, and how the bumps of life seem to keep getting in the way.
My thoughts after reading; Wow, I have never been so torn while reading a book. Seriously, one minute I am in love and the next I have a deep seated loathing. One minute 'someone' is this swoon worthy guy and the next he is a total douche bag. And then there comes another 'someone' and I really was crushing super hard on him only to have mega winch come in and totally crush me all over again!!!
I spent the majority of this book wishing that Lexi would stand up for herself, stop letting Jack treat her like a doormat. And the other parts saying, 'Oh it's, ok.... he really does love her and it will all be ok.'
*pausing to grumble incoherently*
As you all know, because I have stated it on numerous occasions, I am an angst loving girl. This book was in my opinion the perfect proportions of angst, love, heartbreak, and self discovery. If you are like me and you love a good angsty story this is perfect. But be warned if you want hearts and flowers........ you are SOL!!!
Happy Reading!! :-)
