Title: Everything I Shouldn’t (Nashville Nights #2)
Author: Stacey Mosteller
Genre: Contemporary/NA Romance
Release Date: June 26, 2014
I’m saving my judgment until later – I really wasn’t a fan of SarahBeth when the first book ended. She did some things that she should be ashamed of. But since she’s going to get her side heard, might as well read it, right?
This is why I was excited to get a hold of a copy of the second book in the series, much as I wanted to know what in the world is SB’s problem, I wanted to know what will happen to her and Jeremy. Will they have their HEA? Or will karma and circumstances hinder it?
I would have love to say – you so deserved it! But seeing her suffer, and broken – I couldn’t stand it too! I wanted them to be together. Ever since Lyric caught them making out in the first book. They have been through a lot, Jeremy had watched her grow up and was with her all the time. He tried to fight it, if just for the sake of his friendship with David. It took a lot of effort for his part to put his emotions aside, but as the years goes by, instead of dying down, his feelings intensified. I watched them tiptoeing around their feelings for each other until they can no longer hold it on their own – and Jeremy was worth the wait and heartache.
They should have told David, he would have been angry, but at least he won’t be caught off-guard. But no, they needed to keep it. SB wanted to keep it to avoid their friendship to suffer – but at what expense? Instead of mitigating, it just added fuel to the burning fire. It had caused them a lot, more than what they have bargained for.
It’s good to see Lyric here again, and I have loved her more! She was just amazing, and even though SB wasn’t that friendly to her, she didn’t held grudge, instead she held SB’s hand during the time she needed her the most.
One big scene after the other, because this is I think a two-part novel, Stacey left me with a great ending that left me wanting to beg for the next one to come earlier than expected. Although I had seen this one coming, I wanted to know how all this would end up for our two love birds!
The title so apt for everything that has happened in this book. SB is the type of character I’m sure (like me) you’d have a love-hate relationship with, but in the end, she’ll win your hearts. Just like the first book, I enjoyed reading this story and the ending had made me so excited for the next book in the series!
