Running Home to You is the second book in the Running Series
SOOOOO, those of you thats have been following my blog ALREADY know that i was so not a fan of the first book in this trilogy. BUT… well. I still oddly enough wanted to read this one because I have the annoying tendency to want to finish something once I’ve started.
So yup! Yup! Let’s get started. 😉
This beginning was..so painstakingly painful to get through. Maybe it had to do with the lack of plot twists and suspense. It could also possibly have to do with the fact that I couldn’t connect with the characters.
But I’m a survivor and I will not quit. I will not give in.
*Plays Destiny’s Child ‘I’m a survivor’ in the background*
Given the fact that this book was hard to read, netherless my fellow book devoures, I have BIG news. This news is so big, I don’t think you’ll be able to handle it all at once.
I’m going to finish the last book in the series but this will most likely be my last time reading anything by this author.
With that being said, I think it’s totally sexy when a guy shows his jealousy.
*wicked smile forms on face*
Believe me, I understand that Jett and Derek have this weird relationship where they, and I quote, harmlessly flirt with each other’ but umm, HELLO Jett.. obviously you have a boyfriend and obviously that boyfriend is going to get ticked off if you flirt with other men right in front of him.
WHY YOU NO PUT UP BOUNDARIES?!
Like, just tell him “you no touch me, kay?”
That was it and it could have simmered down all of the problems with Evan and Jet.
In the last book Evan was held against his will by a HELLA.CRAZY. celebrity.
And now this has left him…Well… screwed up for lack of a better term. Now he is suffering from said event and is suffering with these symptoms:
●Spurts of anger
●And a heap of other really unpleasant things.
Yeah… so Jett had had a lot to deal with. My heart still hurts for him. Like guys, it’s so sad. This book is a real heart tugger.
Not to mention Auggie, Jett’s bff had an accident so nooww, he had problems on top of everything else.
*Rips a handful of Kleenex out if box and wipes nose.*
♡ Jett- A tad bit naive but come on guys, she is REALLY going through it in this book. Like for realz, for realz. She has to slip on some size XXL girl panties to get through this.
♡ Evan- MAN. MAN. OH. MAN. Evan, my dear. Bless your heart. I understand you’re going through a rough patch in life right now. Just please know that I trust that in the end you’ll make the right decision.
♡Auggie– Still wish I had him as a best friend. He’s so strong and ALWAYS, ALWAYS there for Jett. Even with his accident he found a way to be there for her. Such a good friend, ya’ll) 😉
♡RYKER- This dude here… I had my misgivings about him in the beginning and never, NOT ONCE, (Okay maybe once) did I trust him. He had many redeeming qualities about him that had me changing my mind.
But at the end of the day I WAS RIGHT, to not trust him.
Although slow in some parts, I did like the way the mystery was added to the story in just the right moments to make me wonder. (I wasn’t overly excited to find out what would happen so I was kind of… semi-anxious?) If that made any lick of sense.
“I love you. We’re SO meant to be together. Ohhh yeahhh.”
I still feel parts were really slow throughout the entire book due to the lack of plot and feels. (Also the lack of plot had me like…. Okay?? Problems didn’t come to a head until the very end. (annoying BTW)
I did have my misgivings about the first book in this trilogy but I HAVE to say that this one came around for me. I’m slightly anxious to read the final book, completing this trilogy!:)
Over To You:
Have YOU ever had a book that just didn’t sit right with you but you decided to read the next one in the series anyway??
