She had plenty on her plate: no apartment, no job, no career and no man – but she resolved most of those in the first book: and quite satisfactorily. But now, with a wonderful man and a career that utilizes her not so inconsequential fashion sense, and is buoyed by her supermodel best friend, she’s raring to take on every new challenge. And therein is her problem: she’s still scattered, and still functions with that bit of self-absorbed narrative that is wholly hers. While her new partner Anthony is wonderful and charming, if often feeling left out with her other interests. See, she’s still all wrapped up in reuniting her parents and getting them to remarry, and her nights with her best friend are still booze-fueled and late, and Anthony is actually feeling a bit pushed to the side.
In the first book, Temple managed to keep Magenta fresh and uniquely her own: even with the train wreck that she was making of her life, there were hopes for her to show some depth and growth. Here, those moments are fewer and more difficult to find: with her own narrative often reverting to one of an eighteen year old, immature and not always considering consequences before the action. Yet, this is one of those stories that you want to cheer on Magenta and want the best for her. Even as you repeatedly (or I) want to strangle her senseless, just to get her to stop and think first. She does, after what felt like an interminable time, and became again that dotty friend that you enjoy in doses: not necessarily one you’d want about full time. Temple makes you want to know her, and want to love her – but perhaps as she has her own moments of se;f-doubt and insecurities, as a reader you are also reluctant to give her your all. A great installment and follows nicely after the first book, one that you’ll want to read to get the full measure of the character that Temple created.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Rosa Temple made an art of the perfect mix for lovely rom coms with a touch of thought provoking themes.
I've really enjoyed the first book in the series and this wasn't different...still a win for me and I recommend it.
