REVIEW by Dani
If you have not read Trying Not to Love You, that is a must before this book. You can read my review here.
If you remember I was completely shattered by the awesome ending in the first book. Well let me tell you, Megan Smith does not let us off the hook so easy. I was sweating it out for the first few chapters. Emotional rollercoaster!!! We start off where the book left off with the accident, however we are now seeing it from Hunter’s POV. DEVASTATING, I was so torn up inside about what would happen. I fell in love with Hunter even more in this book. He is so in love with MacKenzie (CC). You can feel how torn he was at the beginning on if he needed to be with her or the new baby. On top of all of this he has other drama going on, in the form of his dad coming back into his life and so many secrets that he did not know about. All he wants to do is protect his baby and MacKenzie.

I really hoped I was doing the right thing. No! I knew I was; I
wasn’t putting my family in the
middle of this shit storm unless it was necessary. CC would
understand why I hadn’t told her this was g
on, if she didn’t I would have to make sure she did. She and Ryder were my

There are so many twist and turns going on in this story I just let go to see what would happen instead of trying to figure it out.

MacKenzie is the same determined girl she was in the first book, and shows this determination and kick ass attitude in this book. The problem is she has too many people trying to protect here who think she is not grown enough to hear the truth. This becomes a HUGE issue in this book. I was a emotional wreck with the outcome of some of the secrets people have been hiding coming out.

“Don’t CC me anything. You knew about this and you didn’t tell me?” I
was now turning my
wrath on him. “You got pissed off that I didn’t tell you about
Dominic visiting me that one time. I’ve told
you everything
from that day forward. You didn’t think you
should have told me about this?”
I dropped his hand, I was disgusted. He’s so hypocritical.

There are times you will laugh and cry, be angry and then happy. Megan Smith definitely did not disappoint with the follow-up to CC and Hunter’s story. She managed to have the story grow even more than you ever thought it could. And like I said you will always love Hunter.

We also get to see a lot of the other characters, Mason, Hailey, Coop, and Jaylinn. I fell in love with Cooper by the way, I cant wait to read his story. In the Epilogue we are left with a minor cliffhanger which will lead us into Hailey and Mason’s story which I am so eager for. And there is not a chance you will end this book and not love Hailey.

4.5 Stars!!


Thankfully, there was just enough room for me to turn the truck without hitting the car in front of me. I hopped the curb and turned the vehicle around, then drove passed all the cars trying to get on the ramp. I fumbled around on the floor for my phone. I needed to call Mason and Cooper and tell them to meet me at the hospital.

Finally finding it by my right foot, I grabbed it and dialed Mason’s number. He answered on the first ring, “Was it her car?”

I took a shuddering breath, “Yeah. She’s alive but they’re air lifting her to Cooper University Hospital. Can you meet me there?”

“I’m on my way.”

I dialed Cooper and he picked up before it even had a chance to ring, “Dude, please tell me that’s not her car.”
“I’m sorry Coop. They’re air lifting her to Cooper University. I need you to call your mom and dad and have everyone meet over there.” I couldn’t call her parents, not unless I had some useful information.
“Do you think she’ll be ok?” I heard Jaylinn crying in the background.
“She has to be.”
“Alright, we’ll meet you there in a few minutes. I’ll have Jay call your mom.”
Cooper took a deep breath, “Hunter?”
“Be safe. Everything’s going to be ok.”
“It has to be Coop, I’ll see you soon.” I hung up and for the first time that I can remember, I cried.
Everything has to be ok. CC and the baby will make it through this. They have to. As I drove I did something that I didn’t do nearly enough, I prayed. I prayed all the way to the hospital. Things were finally perfect, almost too perfect for us, and now this had to happen.
