Fantastic storyline. A very sensitive book dealing with love,death grief and acceptance. I was thoroughly hooked from beginning to the end. It was the sort of book that had me laughing one minute and crying the next

By Sian Louise VINE VOICE on 7 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was quite looking forward to reading this one as I did enjoy Faking It.
However this wasnt nearly as good.
I really felt for Andi's character and putting myself in that situation I can only guess at how it would make me feel and at the beginning of the book it made for compelling reading.
But....it didnt last long, if you have read the first book then its obvious who she meets in Rome, but then a new relationship starts up with this person again.

I actually found Andi exhausting in this book, she was selfish and annoying and (in my opinion) kept leading Dev/David on. I liked him a lot more in this book than the first one but there were a few times I wanted him to man up and tell her to stop messing him about. What also annoyed me was the way Andi kept calling him Devin when he is actually David, it was quite ignorant and well annoying.

I found myself flicking through and scanning the pages and I hate to go through books that way... I wanted to enjoy this but I didnt. A big part of me thinks maybe the author should have just left Andi's story at the end of Faking It.

Loved it! Make sure you read the first book in this series first and I bet, like me, you'll want to read the third part as soon as you finish this one! I'm now of to download it, I've read them all one after each other and have been thoroughly impressed.

I liked this book, I got it for free as an Amazon offer and read it very quickly as I enjoyed it immensely. Having just lost a family member it was also good to read from that perspective. its a good story and I love how the lead character Andi develops throughout the book and you really get to want her to be ok. Sometimes it can be a little bit cheesy, but I think that is just a slight culture clash between my English mind and an American writer, but I really liked it, found it a realistic portrayal of grief and it felt like it had a very positive message too. Good plane/beach/tube read

I really enjoyed this book, it deals with the really difficult subject of grief yet it is not a sad book. Mostly it is about how we all have things that happen to us in life which effect how we relate to one another, I know it made me examine some aspects of my behaviour. Yet it is a very moving and enjoyable love story as well, fast paced and extremely well written. I highly recommend this book.

After coming across the first book Faking It by browsing in the Kindle sale I really enjoyed it and was at a loss when it finished. To my delight I noticed that the author's other books included this sequel and went straight to it. It was very satisfying to know what happened next. I totally recommend this book

I found it a little hard to get into at first as I found it hard to relate to the characters as they seemed to be different from the 1st book. Although I did start to get into the book near the end. It's a pleasant read and I can't wait for the third book!

The best books ask the reader to participate; to bring themselves to the reading. This is such a book. They are so rare that I am truly grateful to have stumbled across Ordinary World, with its quite extra-ordinary writing...
