This book was just as much a goddamn rollercoaster as the first. I’m not sure how much I enjoy the love triangle between Avery, Jameson and Grayson, but I do enjoy how all the brothers feel a sort of protectiveness for her.
Spoiler The whole ‘Avery is Toby’s daughter’ to ‘oh she isn’t it’s this random girl who’s two older siblings work for her just to find him’ I really didn’t enjoy, I think I would have liked it more if Avery actually was Toby’s daughter, but that might just be coming from my hatred for Ricky and Skye and whatever the hell they were trying to do.
Spoiler I did really enjoy, however, how Max was far more present in the second book than the first, in the first book I felt like Avery was too isolated, with the Hawthorne boys only wanting her cause she was either similar to Emily or to help them solve the mystery. Also, I loved how both Grayson and Jameson have sort of matured, Jameson more so, and how they both know that no matter their feelings they need to put their arguments aside to protect her.

I am unabashedly team Grayson. I know the past two books have been dedicated to developing Avery and Jameson but COME ON! When the author is so elusive and only throws us a bone once in awhile I get attached wayyy more easily than if there’s consistent action. It’s one of my flaws to be honest. I love this series so far, it’s so fun and incredibly satisfying to feel everything pull together. That said something is preventing me from falling in love with the books. Maybe it’s how fast I’m reading them or my preconceived notions. I’m also glad I’m late to the party and only starting this series now despite relentless recommendations. This way I can binge the entire series and not have to wait and forget important details like I had to with A Good Girls Guide to Murder. The quality has been super consistent with this series and I’m so thankful for that.
