WOW. I love when authors make second books of a series a POV of the guy I quite liked. I mean, same story but it was told in the male lead's POV. But this book, this particular series, I like how Hoover added some things in it. I love how she start it where in Les still alive. Even though her appearance is quite short.
Holder's thoughts are strong. I mean, you could feel whatever he was feeling, especially when Les died. We didn't know, from book 1, what Holder felt when his twin sister overdosed, when he lose Hope, when he saw his mother devastated. We didn't really know. We just know that he felt guilty about it, he's sad and all, but we didn't really know what was going on his mind.
Well, it was because it is Sky's POV back then. So what we know, we knew it through her. It's a good thing that Hoover wrote this story in Holder's POV. It makes us feel connected to them both.
Yes, it started out a bit slow cause I was looking forward to him meeting Sky and telling her about it all. But I guess, it's okay, the pace I mean.
I cried. I actually didn't expect that I will cry again since I already know what happened. But Hoover made some twist in the end. And it just broke my heart all over again.
But yes, I love the book. LOL. It's really hard to review books you liked. :p
