Published by Atria Books on September 18, 2012
Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will´s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge … how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop `carving pumpkins.`
My ReviewIt is January and Will writes his thoughts and feelings into a diary. Nothing he thought he´d ever do, but now it seems the only way for him, to deal with certain things.
In this case I have to admit that the cover of the German edition is a lot more intriguing than the original one. And that was what made me look at those books a second time. Not the hype that was created around them or the fact that they were first published as eBooks. No, it was the German cover it is as simple as that. Well, and the question what I would think about that trilogy.
The novel shows a lot of twists and turns, and when you think that the author can´t top the story, she proofs the opposite.
But I have to say that I am a bit disappointed by Layken. She acts in certain situations very childish and shows a pattern in her behavior when life struck her again. After all she´s been through I can´t believe that she hasn’t grown a bit in that field. Okay, she questions her relationship with Will – again, and it is obvious that she doesn´t trust herself or her feelings for him very much. But why acting like a stubborn little girl and why is she not asking Will why he did it? Why doesn´t she give him the chance to explain it all? She seemed way more grown up and considered in the first novel Slammed.
