Another delightful and cleaver read. The plot was both well thought-out and enjoyable. The editing was much better than the first, making no room for any odd or uncomfortable slow points. I read this one quicker than the last. As before, the 3rd person narration shifts between different POVs, but all scenes seemed to have had a purpose and point.
I'm also happy to say there is definitely forward movement between our two leads, as they face their romantic pasts. And damn, just as a resolution starts to come to fruition for the two partners, it ends. I really could have used another chapter, or maybe another book to be completely satisfied on that front. No doubt, the wait will be long and tedious, but I'm sure it will be well worth it in the end.
