Release Date: August 22, 2017
Genre: Young Adult Romance
Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
I really liked this one! I wasn't sure how I would feel about Riley because she was bad mouthed so bad in the first two books, but she was redeemed in this one. This goes to show you that everyone truly does have their own story and you should think about that before judging them. For those who are unfamiliar with the series (not a lot of people, I'm sure) each book can standalone as they feature different couples. The characters from previous books are interconnected and do play a role, but not in a big enough way that this one would confuse you. This book features Riley and Brady plus Riley's cutie little girl whose name I cannot pronounce (if anyone can pronounce it please leave me a comment... This aggravated me so much LOL).
Possible Spoilers Ahead if you don't know the Series
Riley is the character from previous books who was shunned from her town because she said a football player raped her. In the former books, Abbi Glines made her out to be quite the villainous liar when in actuality, she was not. Readers will hear slightly about the rape, but there aren't any details so younger teens can read it. Anyway, the rape caused Riley to become pregnant and she now has a little girl named Bryony. Thinking that her life was only going to be about her and her baby girl, Riley is surprised when an old friend comes back in her life and wants to make amends for the way he treated her two years ago. Surprise! He finally believes she was telling the truth. From here, a romance blossoms between the two. It's not a fast moving one, it's slow, heartwarming, and believable. Unfortunately, there is some drama that the two need to get though within the book, and it's certainly not easy, but how they overcome everything and find a way to be in love is breathtaking. Abbi did a wonderful job with their story and I couldn't be more happy for how it all turned out.
End Possible Spoilers
I think Abbi Glines writes fantastic young adult romances, and I know that as long as she keeps writing them that I will read it. I do hope though that future books won't have similar dramas like some of her previous books and series. I hate to read the same stuff over and over again.
Fans of young adult romances and those who love the authors books will certainly enjoy this one. I think adults and teens alike will fall in love with this story of the characters.
The Field Party Series
This is a series of interconnected standalones.
