Rebound sex gone wrong, plus epically bad luck, lands me in a sticky spot--at the front of a classroom, naked, with the totally hot, totally forbidden Mr Sketch Pad. I'm not a model, but here I am feeling more drawn to him each second. Add in that sexy smile and I'm totally screwed.
Secrets & Lies 2 was the first H.M. Ward book I had to wait for, and I’ll tell you: It wasn’t fun! When I first picked up Secrets & Lies 2, I was a little confused because I had read so many other books in between, and I couldn’t remember much. Luckily, though, the important things came back to me pretty quickly as I continued.
While the “raccoon bus” was unfortunately absent in this installment, it had some of its own hilarious moments, starting right at the beginning. There were also some super-awkward moments (the phone call with her mother, for example. I won’t say anything else about it, but just wait until you read it!)
One of the things I like best about this series is that it’s the funniest of Holly’s series, in my opinion. While it feels like everything that can go wrong will for Kerry, it all seems to happen in light and funny ways, rather than dark ones.
We got a revelation at the end that I didn’t initially see coming but that I figured out long before Kerry did. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I guess we’ll see how it pans out.
The last paragraph was the game changer. It wasn’t a massive, edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger, but it just sparked so many questions that I can’t wait for the next installment so I can get my answers!
