The ending lacked a little for me but also wrapped up kind of nicely. Not sure where we go from here hut am excited to find out. 

Also wish Avery had chosen Grayson but maybe it's because I like him...

This series is the definition of curve ball and somehow it always makes sense. There is no solving these books in advance. You, the reader, are definitely just along for the whirlwind ride, and yet they always keep me feeling engaged. 
It takes forever to get to an answer but the pacing is done so well that the book never feels slow.
Once again, Jennifer Lynn Barnes has earned a gold star for dialogue. Every quip had me smiling. Every heartfelt confession tugged at my heart. 
I don't know how the characters of Hawthorne House can be so mysterious and so loveable at the same time, but every one of them is thoroughly enjoyable.
Even though the story felt like it would have to leave loose ends, Barnes managed to wrap every mystery in a satisfying bow.
The plot may not be complex and the characters may not be the deepest you'll ever read, but I completely enjoyed every page of The Hawthorne Legacy and can't wait to dive in to book 3.

The second book in the Inheritance Games trilogy. A quick read and tons of fun. Onwards toward the third book!

Not as enthralling as The Inheritance Games for me, but still a fun follow-up. Lots of action and drama. Found it really difficult to keep the relationships between the characters straight in this one, maybe because I was listening instead of reading?

At times, I couldn't take this book seriously, but I think that improved my reading experience. The first book wasn't my thing, mostly because of the romance, and I went into this one knowing it probably wouldn't be my thing either.

In general, I'm not a fan of romantic subplots, and this one wasn't an exception. To me, it was more funny than anything. I found myself laughing out loud at times, especially at the descriptions and placement of some scenes. As with the first book, I think it's pretty obvious who she'll end up with, anyway.

A few of the twists felt like they weren't properly set up and moreso there for shock value, especially those at the end. The twist with Millie felt especially random, considering she was mentioned only two or three times in the entire book beforehand.

However, even with all of its issues, I still had a generally good time reading it, mostly by not taking it seriously.
