Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I was waiting eagerly for this book for sooo long, I had high hopes for this book but unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations but I did enjoy it. You can read my review of book 1: How Willa Got Her Groove Back, here.
Willa’s life turned upside down since her father decided to marry Mia McCain who is a famous celebrity. Along with everything, it also bought Finn McCain into her life. Willa knows that nothing is possible between them but she can’t deny the attraction she feels towards her soon-to-be-stepbrother either. Will Willa be able to untangle herself from this mess?
This book picks up from where book 1 left off. Willa’s dad and Finn’s mom and to be married soon but Willa and Finn both have not so step-siblings feelings towards each other. I enjoyed this book but there were some factors which I couldn’t ignore. I loved Finn, he was so, so great but Willa acted a little too immaturely. It was crystal clear that Finn cared for her so much yet she was hell bent on thinking the opposite. Also, the word good-looking and hot were used waaaay too many times. I get it, Finn is handsome along with the rest of the other guys in this book but what about the qualities that actually matters? We do get this but kinda at the last 30% of this book which was really disappointing.
The plot felt a little too repetitive but I did enjoy it. I loved the minor characters in this book, it was pretty great to see the other characters from this series, especially Mariely who is Willa’s best friend. I didn’t know what to feel about Damien in book 1 but in this book her really showed his true colours. I liked the romance between Willa and Finn and I was soo happy to see how they finally got to their senses. I definitely enjoyed how everything is resolved in this book.
Overall, Weddings, Crushes, and Other Dramas was a good read. The plot was executed neatly and I liked the chemistry between Willa and Finn. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book.
So guys, how many of you are eagerly waiting for this book? Have you read the rest of the books in this series? Which one is your favourite?
