*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Ethan Fisher is kind of a badass- just ask him. The fact that he plays guitar and sings in a band only serves as fuel to the fire of his flirtatious nature. That is until he meets Courtney Ross, a sort of anxious, pixie-like cheerleader with a vocabulary much larger than his. Things would be perfect if she didn’t live eighteen hundred miles away. She shifts his perspective and steals his heart, but how long can she keep it? Find out what was behind all of those sexy smirks in What Comes of Eating Doughnuts With a Boy Who Plays Guitar, and what really went down the night of that fateful phone call.
College bound, Ethan knows he will run into Courtney eventually, and he is determined to have another chance to be the man she thought he was. If it is even possible for her to speak to him without throwing her coffee in his face. He’s willing to take his chances in hopes that the infatuation of their summer love can hold up in the real world. In a novel that is part insightful overlap, part delicious sequel, learn how this winding tale of love and heartbreak unfolds.
“You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
This book also contains what happened on book one but in the perspective of Ethan, it good but it could bore readers who just read the first one. Then the other parts were about what happened after. There were also a lot of scenes that didn’t help build the story. And because of that, I think the book got a little longer than it is supposed to. Also, the speaker is in third person and I think it would be better if first person was used and if the dual POV was used all the way through. The author still suggested some tracks to be played every chapter.
“She made him want to be someone who deserve her.”
I like this book better than the first though because Ethan’s perspective is less dramatic, and it’s nice to know what runs in his mind especially on their first meeting. I also like that it showed the good relationship of Ethan with his mom and sister. I like how the characters grew from being high school students to college students, and they got better.
This is a good book! 🙂 It just didn’t kept my attention a lot of times. If you love young adult romance, give this a try!
