Dark but good.
** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK, BY THE AUTHOR, IN RETURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **
There were a lot more heart-warming, sad, and funny moments in this story than in the previous book. For me, that's what saved it. It dragged on
just a little in the middle and at the end, when everything seemed resolved and there wasn't much else that needed to be told. Unlike the other stories, this one also took up the full set of pages, apart from the first 10% of advertising.
If possible, this story could have been a little shorter, but overall it worked.
The characters were just as sweet and interesting, depressed and lonely as the first book. While Reggie and Dylan added some much needed comic relief, every now and then. Their bromance equally the sweet moments of Yancy and Curt's romance until it was hard to tell which pair were the couple.
Again, I'm not sure there's scope for more, but I'm told there will be another story. Only time will tell whether it's needed or not.
Though this is an unformatted ARC, I was miffed to see that there was 10% of “promotional material” for As Good as Gold at the beginning. I can only assume this is an excerpt from the next book? Either way, it's unwanted. Unless it's a Prologue, there shouldn't be anything in front of Chapter 1 except maybe copyright info, a blurb or a contents page. If it definitely is about the next book in the series, I can't understand why it's at the front, before I've even read book 3.
