Now, part 1 left the reader on a bit of a downer, Seb flying off to NYC and leaving Jay behind. Part 2 kicked off a few months later, Seb miserable in NYC & Jay working his way to be being noticed & then being employed by the Hammers (West Ham for the uninitiated) and rather miserable too. Now at various points, I did have WTF moments (Seb's mother's rather fortunate reappearance and a rather accommodatingly tolerant captain & manager - it's set in 2007/8), but I couldn't help but enjoy it. Seb's character, though rather irritating, did invoke compassion and Jay was more likeable than in part one. It was also fun and made me laugh at various points, certainly leaving me with a smile on my face.
So, not quite 5*, more like 4.5 rounded up to 5, purely for it being a middle segment & wanting the final part NOW!
We've had a bit of a time jump with Sebastian now in New York work at his father's company and Jay is still at university waiting on his big chance.
We get to see the boys grow into men, mostly, and take steps towards what they want for their future rather than others.
In book one, Sebastian definitely grated on the nerves a bit with his holier than thou attitude but he gets a chance to shine in this book, showcasing his mistakes but also his way to learn from them.
Jay also has choices to make but he has a great support system with his best friend Ann and brother Bryan, both of whom crack me up with their cockney slang and attitude to everything. At times when needed, they bring a little humour to the situation.
We also get appearances from Martin and Noel, both in London and New York. Martin especially helps Seb at his times of need, often with a much needed talking/shouting to.
There are surprises on both sides in regards to parents. One set up learning some news and one we have not yet met.....
You need to have read book one, Kick Off, to get the story and character connections in this book and I'd definitely recommend it for those who have! Cannot wait for book 3!
I received an ARC and am happily giving a review.
The increasingly fantastcal elements completely spoil what started as simple romance for two Londoners from different sides of the tracks
What's also amazing is how wrong you get things, personally, I thought one thing would happen but then the total opposite happened.
I love the switch in rich and poor diversity too.
I can't wait for book #3
