i was gonna give this somewhere between 4 and 5 but then so much happened in the last couple chapters it kinda felt a bit overwhelming and was a bit all over the place. i did realllyyyyyyy enjoy this tho!!! this is my favorite series i've read in a long time. again i'm always a little surprised on how heavy the romance is but honestly i think this had good moments where there was no thought of it. sometimes though i just wanna shake avery like GIRL STOP THINKING ABOUT GRAYSON OR JAMESON THIS IS NOT THE TIME 😭 something crazy related to the mystery will happen and suddenly you''ll just read one of those two names like girl 💀

I really, really liked this book. Honestly, I thought it was even better than the first! There were so many plot twists and surprises I genuinely didn't see coming. Whenever I think I have a handle on predicting what is going to happen next, I find out I was completely wrong!

Like the first book, this one stars a bunch of teens and involves k*ssing/r*mance... except it's way worse this time.... I would've made this book 5 stars but because of this one scene I found to be especially gross, on top of being unnecessary (didn't contribute to the plot at all...), I really had to dock the entire book. (BTW, I'm 23.) Again, this didn't contribute to the plot but this scene was
Spoiler a bunch of the main characters--some minors, some NOT--taking their clothes off for a game (some down to their und*rwear, and it really seemed so random/ stuck out/ forced/ in contrast to the rest of the book!) </spoiler> because it served NO PURPOSE AND WAS SO WEIRD AND MADE ME SO UNCOMFORTABLE/WANT TO THR*W UP AND AHHHH!!
