Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing. Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets. Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more. Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, Jackson is determined to protect her—at all costs. Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good? Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
What I loved:
Okay, anyone who knows me at all, or has followed this blog at all knows I love mob related stories. I don’t know what it is, but if it involves a young mobster, I LOVE it. Second, these characters are well written and you can understand their feelings better than most new adult characters. Neither of them is perfect, their reactions to situations are realistic, and they don’t dwell on things for an unnecessarily long time (sometimes I think new adult characters cling to this one event in their past and it becomes the CENTER of the story; that doesn’t happen here and its great!). Also, the book doesn’t prattle unnecessarily. The author doesn’t wax poetic about how beautiful Ana is or how hot Jackson is-she works in details about the characters and the setting in a way that isn’t annoying and I appreciate that.
What I didn’t love:
While the cliffhanger in this book wasn’t as gut wrenching as it was in book 1, I am still NOT okay with waiting for the next book. I’m not good at the patience thing…
If you like…
This book isn’t for everybody-if you like the new adult, angsty genre, then this is a GREAT book. I know this genre isn’t for everyone but if you are good with new adult, this is a wonderful series that will really give you a look at how new adult should be done!
Perhaps I should do a post about my fav mob related books? There are so many I want to share…so, if you like this type of book, keep your eyes out for a post!
