REVIEW - Wicked Reunion (Wicked White #2) by Michelle A. Valentine
Release Date: 15 December 2015
College sweethearts London Uphill and Jared Kraft were inseparable. He was a rising baseball star with a promising future, and she seemed destined to become “Mrs. Kraft.” Then a tragic night and a series of devastating mistakes caused Jared to walk away from his life, leaving London without any explanation and tearing the couple apart.
Five years later, Jared has reinvented himself by putting down the bat and picking up a guitar to play for the red-hot band Wicked White. In all that time, London hasn’t gotten over her forever love—or the pain—despite seeking solace in the arms of the one man no one dreamed she’d run to.
When Wicked White’s lead singer goes MIA, Jared finds the time—and courage—to return to his hometown and face the mess he made. He’s shocked at how London’s life has changed, yet he’s determined to prove their love is worth fighting for. Is this breakup too big for any hope of a reunion tour? Or can London open her heart to Jared once again?
My Opinion 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I must admit that i did struggle a little with this book. Constantly other than changing from chapter to chapter between London and Jared's point of view we would also get a chapter of the past then the present. It was like getting reading whiplash and you had to be on your toes as to whether you were reading present or past.
All of the characters at some point (and for quite a while) were really self centred and were hurting those around them. Jared was hurting London, his mother and his brother. London by ignoring Wes's true feelings and leading him on and Wes with his feelings for London.
Don't get me wrong, i do like second change romances, but, arrrrh. I almost wish that the book had a different ending. I had hoped that Wes got the girl he was always there for and that London finally realised what a good man he is and found that she did live him after all.
The first book in this series was too much better, but i can always hope that book three is much better than this one.
