I started reading this book with high hopes because of the first book in the series, and while it was still a really good read, I found it a tad predictable. I love stories that have twists, and this one didn't quite get there. Mack of course falls for the girl who is a challenge, and she finally gives in. Her secret was always bound to come out and you knew she would end up running away and blaming Mack. I just felt like the story between them was too forced and I hate even writing this because I usually love this author's writing. I will say I'm really excited for the next book with Finn and Layla and I think that one will get me back as a #1 fan.
I think I'm still in my reading slump. I even had a harder time concentrating on reading this book than I normally would (but that could have been that my life kept trying to get in the way of my reading). Truthfully the reading of this book kind of went in a rollercoaster. It didn't grab me right at the beginning, and I wasn't necessarily feeling the chemistry between Mack and Kaija right away. But I HONESTLY cannot tell if it's me anymore. It's starting to bug me. Anyways, by the time they started their prank war, I was totally absorbed and devouring all the words!!! I loved their playfulness and Sam was a hoot!!! And then I think I got distracted by life again and I lost the magic... I was enjoying watching Mack and Kaija get closer to each other, but it kind of just felt like it happened too fast, and Kaija easily let go of her reservations. So I had a hard time buying into the development of them as a couple. But once I finally let that go, I enjoyed watching them together.
I think in the end I enjoyed each of their individual stories more than their romance. I really felt for Kaija and what happened to her back in New Zealand. It was an interesting character perspective -- someone who'd been one of the mean girls and who'd learned a REALLY hard lesson. And what happens to her in this book totally brought me to tears. I thought her story was very authentic.
Mack had his own interesting story to tell, but I felt like his skimmed the surface a bit more. I would have liked even more depth there, but that could have been just my mood too, you know? I guess I just feel like I still don't quite know what drives Mack, other than his love of his family. But maybe that's because he doesn't know who he is either? Which is ok, but I guess I just wanted more...
So yeah, I'm still super intrigued by the stories and the world that Ms. Ford has created, but this one just didn't hit it out of the park quite as much as Colt and Tori's story did. I was so glad we got to see a bit of them in this story as well, b/c they are adorable together! I wish we'd seen more of Finn, but I am super psyched that Finn's story is next (even if I'm wary of Layla as the heroine), so there are good things coming in my future! :)
The way the characters are written and are brought to life just makes you think the characters are real out there in the wide world.

„We're meant to be together. I've known it since the second I saw you. I know it because I've been acting crazy trying to win you over.“
There is this instant connection between Mack and Kaija and you can feel it with them. I wouldn't call it insta love right away, for me it felt like two souls recognizing their other half. Kaija tries fighting it in the beginning and their banter is pretty funny and gave the book just the right smiling moments between the heartbreak.
„My name's Kaija and I'm not interested in dating someone who thinks the sun shines out his ass.“
But Mack „gets“ his Kiwi Girl, he sees her with all her struggles and it melted my heart how patient and understanding he was with her.
Kaija on the other hand shows Mack that his future is his to decide no matter what others expect.
They are perfect for each other and even though dramatic circumstances brought Kaija from New Zealand to Nelson High – it was destiny.
Mack and Kaija's journey is a wonderful story about loss, regret, redemption, new beginnings with lots of LoVe and FeeLs ♡
As with Colt and Tori in book#1, Jordan Ford gave me all the butterflies while reading certain sweet scenes ;)
And I especially loved all little moments with Colt and Tori – these two are the cutest and I'd really want to know what she whispered in his ear in the cafeteria... I don't believe we will ever find out, but nevertheless I can't wait for book #3
We met Mack Mahoney in the first book, as Tori's false crush. Star quarterback and captain of the team, Mack isn't short of admirers, but hasn't felt that all consuming connection that Colt and Tori have.
Kaija Bennett is escaping from mistakes she's made in her New Zealand home town. The last thing she wants or needs is attention from the popular crowd at the American school she is attending.
But one look changes everything.
This book makes you believe in love at first sight in a way that's not cheesy or 'roll your eyes, as if' sort of way. What I enjoyed most about this book was the connection between Mack and Kaija had nothing to do with lust/sexual attraction, but something much deeper.
Jordan has inserted herself amongst the greats of the High School Romance genre.
It was such a fun read that will definitely make me think twice when offered a Cup Cake!
