Meanwhile he's smitten and just wants her to agree to a date where they could actually get to know each otherThings wrap up rather uickly from thereI'm so used to epilogues that the endings in this series so far have felt really abrupt That being said I'll be getting a peek at Toby and Sienna as well as Eli and Monica's HEA in Alex's book which does have an epilogue because I checked so that's what I'm reading next Here was another plot inconsistency because I don't recall Sienna actually telling him who it was that assaulted her yet fast forward to when she finally confronts her mother for being a terrible mom he knows to call the guy by his name to ask how the fancy gala went and whether or not the guy gave her any trouble? That's what friends are forYou know you have a good story when the supporting cast and main cast each have you in your feelings wanting You have Toby and Cee Cee who have your friends turn lovers But the next is Ivana and Jonathan who are the epitome of opposite attract The intertwining of the two had you rooting to see what was next This is the second book in this series and as stated I love books in a series I like to see characters continue to grow even though the book may have a focus on another character That is the case for this book and I'm sure I will continue to enjoy see the characters in the other books As for this book there was a point when I felt it was going to take one turn and it did another It wasn't a bad turn just unexpected An easy read which was entertaining Enjoyable readFarrah Rochon has again produced an enjoyable read not just the story of Toby and Sienna but sizzling chemistry of the supporting actors I also enjoyed the mystery that this novel has introduced with Mama Holmes can't wait to read the next one Page TurnerGot the next book ready So glad the story is continuing Would like all characters have closure when series ends Read the first book Deliver Me last year and can't wait to read this one when it released in a few months Farrah Rochon is a great great new author to try if you haven't yet Amazing I truly enjoyed Sienna and Toby’s story I liked how they were best friends come lovers I’m so glad they got their happily ever after
