Susan Ward continues to strive as an author. I've been waiting for this book and I am SO happy to read it! What can I say? Once again, I am left speechless by her writing. Susan pulls you in. I am a HUGE fan of Chrissie and Alan. I loved seeing how Chrissie has grown and matured in this second book, learning from her experiences and, in a way, healing.
No doubt her life without Alan in the beginning is heartbreaking. Mostly because I am in love with Alan, and I felt like I was the one who was living without him. Of course, he returns and boy is that hot and intense!
The way Susan writes makes me feel like I am living the story. The emotions ripped through me, as if Chrissie and I were one in the same. No doubt I can relate to Chrissie on a personal level.
What can I say about Neil? If Alan wasn't a part of this story, I'd almost want him for myself. He is perfect in many ways, and I can see how Chrissie and his relationship would bloom so wonderfully. But again, he's no Alan and I'm biased. Chrissie and Neil's friendship is true and honest, and what later leads to more than friends is the same way.
The characters are complex, emotional and perfect in every way. I must say I also enjoyed seeing more of Jack (Please read One Last Kiss series if you haven't! Jack is, well, Jack.) Seeing his relationship with Chrissie is heartwarming and I loved seeing them in a good place, despite the sometimes awkwardness. Then again, who doesn't have awkward moments with their parents.
This book is true, raw and honest. Typical Susan fashion, and I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm ready to dive into The Girl of Diamonds and Rust to see how this ends and loose ends tie up.

So, it's no secret that I was waiting for this book and that I'm hopelessly in love with these characters.
Tortured Chrissie is so imperfect that she is the most perfect heroine and Alan...there are no words.

Tokens and Tears picks up with Chrissie leaving Alan for no good reason other than immaturity and her stubborn tendencies. In my opinion, she had to leave because that's Chrissie (and I would have never left Alan). With leaving, Chrissie goes to college where is still her famous father's daughter and struggling to make her own identity. She hooks back up with Neil Stanton, and he's such a good guy but NOT ALAN.

Most of the book is spent during Chrissie's college years and her time dating Neil. For me, Neil doesn't do it, and Ward does a wonderful job depicting how he is nothing but a placeholder for Chrissie. He's fun, sexy, kind and protective. But again, not Alan.

Alan does return and well, I didn't move for those chapters. He's married now and Chrissie is still dating Alan, but the attraction cannot be denied. And, no spoilers, but they are just so HOT together.

The writing in this book transports the reader to the beaches and gorgeous rocky locale of Santa Barbara and the crunchy campus of Berkeley. The conversations between the characters are as if the reader is there and the steamy scenes are insanely steamy in this one.

We are left with more questions in the ending, but Ward leaves a preview. It's not enough ... because I need to see Chrissie and Alan have their happy ending. It will make all the messiness worth it.

FIVE ALAN MANZONE STARS!

I am enjoying this series. Chrissie is trying to figure out her life since she left Alan to go back to school. She is indecisive at times and wonders if she made the right choice.

She is now at college trying to forget about Alan and struggling with it, until she meets Neil again. They begin spending time together as friends and it develops into something more. She is struggling with wanting to be with Neil and at the same time feels her heart belongs to Alan. Which man will she choose?

I think either of these men could make her happy but I know which one I would choose for her.

I am excited to see what happens in the next book.

Oh my god... this book is sooo much better than the first one ! After book #1 I wanted to kick Alan in the nuts and tell Chrissie to grow a spine. It left me frustated and not sure I wanted to tag along their story anymore... Thank You sweet Jesus !!! for not making me a quitter on my fictional book-friends.... So here we catch Chrissie post-Alan and quickly found myself being TEAM NEIL all the way... I like how she finally began to growup and began to find herself..I have to admit at first I was doubtful of Neil's intentions but as I read along he grew on me... just when I am happy and cheering for the girl and Neil.. BAM he walks in an turns everything upside down....
And know I am Team Alan for a few pages and then Team Neil on the others ... so confusing LOL .... Anyway I am one clicking my way to book #3 and hoping she ends up with the character of my dreams...

I’m trying to figure out how to say what I want to say without any spoilers. The story is very taut (with surprises), so avoiding spoilers will be hard. Here’s the thing you should know – The Girl of Tokens and Tears is even better than the first book, Girl on the Half Shell. And I loved the first book. I loved it because of the characters, Chrissie and Alan. I loved it because of Chrissie and Alan together. So how could this book be even better, especially since – (uh, walked into a spoiler). Okay, I figured out what I want to say, tho it may not be very PC. I’m so tired of tough kick-ass heroines. No, that’s not entirely true. I never really liked them all that much in the first place. I’m not tough. I cry. Some might even say I cry a lot. Chrissie cries too. For good reason. She’s young, she’s suffered heartache and loss, and she’s not tough. But she IS strong. And she is getting stronger all the time. Susan Ward writes with such tenderness and caring for her characters, I’m afraid she’s going to break all our hearts when this series ends. Of course, I’m going to cry.
