MY SWEETEST ESCAPE Synopsis:
The past will always find you.
Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life; until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn't begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn't enough to help her feel normal again.
And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can't begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she's not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she's no longer sure she deserves.
But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he's hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together;or tear them apart for good?
After reading the first book in the series I was very excited to read the second, I was hooked on the first it captivated me. After enjoying the first book so much, I was almost positive that this book was going to be in the same category but unfortunately it wasn't. Don't get me wring it wasn't bad it just wasn't as good at the first and that is such a shame.
Jos is the good girl gone bad after a loss changes her, gone is the girl people knew and in her place is someone who wants to live life a different way and experience new things. The solution? A new school and a new boy . . . Dusty, could he be the person to help her through this time or will he cause her to spiral even further.
As much as I wanted to love Jos and Dusty I just found it. . . hard? The plot took too long to develop and I found myself getting a little bored and impatient, if there was ever a time to march into a book and knock two people's heads together than this was the book. I am glad I didn't put the book down because when it did happen it was good but it still didn't over come the frustration I had from 75% of the book.
This book just need a little more, and when I say more I mean take 90% of the things that happened and times them by four. This book wasn't bad it just wasn't amazing.
