Another good read by Gena Showalter. The second in a series, I waited a long time to read "BLUE's" story. I liked the fact that Black was gifted, but not paranormal. A nice change. Now I'm waiting to see if there will be a 3rd book in the series regarding their other friend who was taken.......
Loved the first one, this is Showalter at her worse. It's still better than a lot of books out there but I actually had to force myself to finish it (which has never happened before with one of her books).
The interaction between Blue and Evie was just filled with too much teenage angst. Do I hate him/her or do I want to nail him/her? Added in the "football" game and it was like high school drama with some explosives thrown in.
There was barely any humor in it, except when they gave Dallas the truth serum. That was the only funny scene. Everything else kind of fell flat and the dialogue was a little dumb.
If this wasn't part of the series, I would suggest skipping it.
This was a really good book. I had my doubts about Evie in the beginning but she truly did grow on me. Blue was pretty awesome his self. He was already pretty kick ass but his whole protective/in love side just makes him amazing. This couple is so great together I could read another full book about them. 4.5 Stars
