My biggest issue with this book was the pacing and the overall speed of the story. It was just too slow for me, and I don't know if it's just one of those books that no matter when I read it, it would have been too slow or it was just bad timing for reading the story. That being said, I thought it was overall a really good story.
I also do want to point out that I did not realize this (and I don't know how I didn't), but I didn't know this was a sequel and I have never read Beautiful (and I plan to), but I don't really think that will change much of how I felt in the story. It might just clear up some small things. Overall, I didn't have any problems following along with the story, which I have to say was great, but I feel like I did miss out on some things.
I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story. I really like both Wyatt and Skylar. I thought the relationship between them was really amazing. Wyatt was such a wonderful guy. He was patient and kind, and everything that you would want in the person that you are with. I also really enjoyed the side relationship between Mitch and Michelle (and they have like perfect names for each other).
*When I read and review the first book, I will acknowledge on that review whether my review for this book changed some, and give a link to an updated version. As for now, I would recommend this book to YA readers who love contemporary.
Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her. He wanted…needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to make with an amazing smile.
When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only get when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
For the first time in months, she felt alive.
The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again…the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robber her of any change of happiness.
Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?
