So, this is the sequel to Always the One and I personally believe it was even better! You can read this as a standalone, but I wouldn't recommend it because you won't get as much feel for the characters and you will be clueless about their past! Oh, and the other characters! Trust me you wanna know about Kingston and Lana just as much as Shayla and Trey!
Now here's the part that you really want to know... Why did you love this book? Well, I loved it because it was real! Raw and as real, as real can be! I mean it is fiction, so it does have the touch of fiction to it, but the feelings that CC made happen in this book were crazy. I am not a crier of any sorts and I wouldn't say that this book is an ugly cry or even a book that will definitely make you cry. BUT, I cried! I felt for the characters so much that the mom or real human or whatever in me, wanted to wrap them up in a huge hug until the world was a better place! That's not super easy to do in a book. So, if not for anything else, that is why I would totally advise checking this serious out!
This is CC Monroe's second book and her writing is developing wonderfully. Her stories are intriguing and connectable. They are well written and make you want more. They make you laugh and they make you swoon. I am ecstatic to read the next project she is working on!
PS. Both books are on sale for just 99 pennies!!
