Ally Ryan, come on down to the Jersey Shore and forget your troubles!
Have you recently been humiliated in front of your friends and family at your former best friend's birthday party? Was your almost boyfriend partly responsible for that humiliation by withholding some vital information about where your estranged father is? Did you come home to find said estranged father sitting on your stoop?
If so, then it sounds like you could use a vacation! The Jersey Shore is the place to be. Your mother may be living with her boyfriend of only a few months, but at least the stunt Shannen pulled has put some of your friends back in your court. Even so, you're still angry and what better way to get over Jake than to blow off some steam with local guy, Cooper? People will hardly recognize your new attitude, but the old one wasn't getting you anywhere, so who cares!
Jake Graydon, an exciting opportunity is waiting for you in the service industry!
Are your grades so low your parents have grounded you for the summer? Did you the girl you really like unceremoniously leave you behind? Would you rather eat dirt than see your friends again? Then a job at the local coffee shop is just the ticket! Surprisingly, Ally's father is the new manager so you get to be reminded of her nearly every day. Maybe it's time to start flirting with your best friend's ex or even taking school a bit more seriously. Especially when you finally see Ally and she's hanging around with some loser and it's couldn't be more clear that she is over you.
Have a great summer!
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and could not wait for this one to come out! Maybe my expectations were too high, but I did not like this one as much as I was hoping...

While reading this book I wasn't very entertained. I mean sure I was interested in it and I kept reading, but I didn't really care about the story. I'm not sure how to put it, but I feel like there was just something lacking. It was kind of slow too. Close to the end of the book I got really interested, but that was around the last 100 pages or so.

I used to like Ally. In this book she just become annoying. She was moody, rude, irresponsible, and overall just made some really dumb mistakes. The thing I didn't like about her the most was that it all seemed to be for a guy. I honestly thought she was smarter than that. I was hoping for more Jake in this book, mainly because he wasn't as awful as Ally. His parts were still a bit boring, but I still liked his character.

I can't write this review without talking about the ending too. Wow. If you don't like major cliffhanger endings, then you might wanna skip this one. I was on the fence about reading the next book, but after that ending I definitely want to see what happens. Although I do think I might have it figured out already... (If you've read this book and want to talk about the ending please email me! I would love to "conspire" with you!)

Overall I was disappointed with this book, it was kind of a struggle to get through. I will however be reading the next book, and if you enjoyed the first one I suggest you still should try this one out. It definitely won't be as great as its predecessor though.

Rating: 3.5 stars / 5 stars

  3. I've seen a lot of people say they were disappointed in this one, I'm a bit wary about it now! Plus, the cliffhanger ending sounds killer. Thanks for the review, you've prepared me for reading this!
