Taylor Livingstone is back in New York forging her own way in the world. She’s working in a top law firm doing long hours using her Law Degree and progressing fast, then why does she feel so empty?
Her personal life is going nowhere too. Her mother told her to hate men, so she’s still a virgin at the age of twenty-four! On top of that she has an aching crush on the manager in her local supermarket in Brooklyn.
She hasn’t time to lose her virginity in New York, but she needs to if a guy like that is even going to look at her. Taylor books a trip to the remote Caribbean Island, Roatán to solve her problem. Here she hopes to finally lose her virtue, and not feel like a complete fish out of water!

But can a trip to a remote island really solve Taylor’s problems?

I'm going to start off this review by saying if you haven't read my review on the first book The Jump be sure you check that out for more! This was another thin book by the author, so of course it was a fast read, but boy was it painful to read.

So right from the beginning, you've got these two characters that live in the same city who have a crush on one another, and somehow they come colliding to one another where things begin to heat up after a short period of time.

I felt like in the third perspective, the sexy scenes were really awkward. As if they were two teenagers who have not had sex yet (although one of them still is a virgin) try to find their way and figure out where things go... I felt like a fly on the wall, awkwardly watching this scene unfold, and I couldn't read fast enough to get past it.

The story line to me felt choppy and their Insta-love was so cheesy and awkward. Normally I'm all for the insta-love romances, but it was just so quick to go from sort of knowing you, to wanting to get married and have kids with you in such a short period of time.

You all know I'm not one to seriously hate on a book (Or I guess in this case a series) But I just did NOT enjoy it. 

Overall, I think you all know my views on this book. I couldn't connect with the characters, the timeline was just way too quick for a romance between two characters, and it was just all around awkward.

That's all for my review, I will have more on the series (Because I bought a few at the same time without realizing it) so we shall see how the rest go.

So until the next time, Keep Reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
