“Let’s go all in. No more contract. No more safety net. You can break my heart. Do whatever you want with it.”
Lara Jean fell (unexpectedly) in love.
Well, she always expected to fall in love…just not like this.
It started with Lara Jean’s younger sister (Kitty) mailing out a series of secret love letters (well they were more like I’m-not-in-love-with-you-anymore) letters.
Then Lara Jean realized that her sister’s boyfriend opened his letter (written before her sister felt started dating him).
In a panic, Lara Jean convinces Peter (hottest guy in school) to date her… and it started off as pretend but now…it’s become something more.by And Lara Jean only realizes it when it’s too late.
When you lose someone and it still hurts, that’s when you know the love was real.
But then, the one letter Lara Jean wasn’t able to get back returned…in the hands of John Ambrose McLaren.
And while she is fully committed to Peter, Lara Jean cannot deny the wistful feelings she has towards the life she would have with John Ambrose McLaren.
So much of love is chance. There’s something scary and wonderful about that.
But when one scandal absolutely rocks her world, she will be left with a very tough decision – one that could change everything.
People come in and out of your life. For a time they are your world; they are everything. And then one day they’re not. There’s no telling how long you will have them near.
This was perfect – SO perfect.
I absolutely love Lara Jean – she is unabashedly kiddish
Anybody else notice how so many YA heroines are clumsy, whip smart, beautiful but they don’t know it, brave and unabashedly brazen?
And then there’s Lara Jean – she adores crafting, plans parties at a retirement home and bakes until perfection and so much more. She’s a homebody, a gentle soul and completely and utterly adorable.
I love how she’s grown since the last book and yet still maintains her inner personality and fire.
I know now that I don’t want to love or be loved in half measures. I want it all, and to have it all, you have to risk it all.
There were so many moments that made me want to hug her.
Also, as a side note – so many books seem to fall apart after the Big Kiss happens and yet this one kept it going. There was so much happening that I was wholly committed to each and every page.
Loved it and cannot wait for the third!
