I couldn’t wait to get to Knox and Avery’s story. I loved the way things were left with them in book 1 of this series. I don’t know what happened though, but the people in this book had zero chemistry. It’s a slow burn kind of story for sure, but Jesus, it took forever for them to just get along. Everything was so drawn out, and super wordy. We got the same information three times at some point. Knox was mad at Avery for reasons only known to him. Avery had come across as this super independent, badass girl at both the end of book 1 and the beginning of book 2. Then, I have no idea what happened. She became whiny, very insecure, to the point where I couldn’t read about her insecurities anymore, and her inner monologues were super long.
There’s a bit of drama toward the end which didn’t make any sense at all, and it sort of followed the same drama recipe from book 1. Avery went off on Knox, then Knox got upset and didn’t want to go talk to her out of spite. But then they each get a talk from someone, and they decide to work things out.
