The past will always find you.
Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life; until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn't begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn't enough to help her feel normal again.
And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can't begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she's not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she's no longer sure she deserves.
But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he's hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together;or tear them apart for good?

I LOVED My Favorite Mistake. I came into the sequel with high expectations. That being said, this was a good book, but didn't live up to MFM.
The plot to the story was great and I had tears through half the book. It was a lot more serious than most of Chelsea's other books.
However, it did take me a bit longer to get into this one. The book started out slower than I was wanting. It didn't really pick up until the second half of the book.
First half of book= 3 stars
Second half of book= 5 stars
Overall, this college romance gets 4 glittery stars for being an emotional read.

Laken along with Cooper Flanders set out to free their families from the hands of the Countenance before it’s too late. Laken will do anything to assure their safety, even if it means losing the one she truly loves.
