I'm going to review the entire season in this one post. It will be broken up by episode so that you know which is which. I love these novellas and the wait for Season Three is going to be long.
I’m going to start this off by saying, that I freaking love this episode!!!! It’s definitely starting off the drama in a super juicy way. I mean, I don’t even know what’s going to happen next, but I do know I can’t wait for the next episode. Want to know what to expect??? Surprises, hot guys, friends, partying, and of course the drama!
The characters are amazing. I adore Bear. He’s probably my favorite out of them all! I still can’t really stand Adam. Ugh, don’t even get me started. I loved seeing Cassie pursued. And I love that she blushes so easily. Jess…. girl, why are you bothering with the party?? And OMG, that ending…..
So much love for this episode. I still have my doubts about Adam, and Erin's story completely breaks my heart. And holy steamy Ashlei!!! I hate the predicament she's in. It's horrible but hopefully she can come out of it.
Holy hell… hot Cassie!!!! And I love how protective Bear is about those he cares about. I hope Adam really listened to him. I’d hate for him to hurt either Cassie or Skyler. Also Grayson is a total gentleman. I love that he cares about Cassie enough to not let other feelings completely take over. And Jess!!!! OMG. I felt all swoony after that last chapter.
Talk about a Spring Break to remember! I swear I don’t think Ashlei can catch a break. And I knew Alex shouldn’t be trusted. Skeezy I tell ya. I hope Erin can find the peace she needs, and that Jess admits that she has real feelings for Jarrett. Any why do you have to make things confusing Adam!!!! Seriously!!!!
This is that episode where I get mad at Jess, and then forgive her a little. I mean dang girl…. Don’t be such a B. And we get to meet Bear’s little brother. He is absolutely hilarious. I can see he takes after his big brother. And I love that Skyler is there for everyone. You kind of see her as selfish in the first season, but she’s really growing and seeing what her sisters need from her. And poor Ashlei. I can’t even imagine being in that predicament. I have a feeling lots of things are going to go down in the final episode.
This episode broke me. I seriously can’t function for the rest of the day. Steiner weaves real issues that happen to people every day into the story, and makes you think. She makes you feel for these characters, and this episode does exactly that. There are happy moments, sad moments, and moments that you wish you could change for the character. Heartbreak that you wish you could keep them from, but topics that should be talked about. Just be prepared to have all kinds of emotions with this last episode of season two. I’m ready for Season Three and I hope some of theses characters find the peace and strength they need.
These are books and characters that will stick with me for a long time. They have become a favorite of mine, and I can’t wait to see what Steiner brings to these characters in the next season.
