I’m in love with two men.
I’m torn and need to choose which man from my past I want as a permanent part of my future. My
heart leads me one way as my brain pushes me toward the other.
I want them both, but each of them holds a secret that will change everything. Can I overcome the
betrayal with a simple intermission, or am I better off alone?

Book #2 of the Love Triangle duet; It cannot be read as a standalone.
I can’t sit on the sidelines as I watch the football player try to intercept my girl from me.
It’s time to step onto the field, give her relationship with him an
intermission, and show her why I’m the right one for her.
Addictiveness: 5/5 Highest level of addictiveness!!! From the first book, I couldn’t take this story out of my head. It was easy to read in one sitting this journey of old and new love.
Character: hero 5/5, heroine 4/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Ms. Suzanne’s characters were multidimensional with several layers to them.
I will start with Delaney because on the first book I had a little bit of trouble connecting with her. She still isn’t my favorite character of the book, but she did grow a lot in this book. I still think that she loved to created more drama than was needed, but I guess that is my personal opinion.
There are 2 men in this triangle. I won’t give them names, but definitely one is what book boyfriends are made of. The other, I didn’t like him at all on the first book, but in this book he grew on me. I can totally see him having his own love journey in a future book from Ms. Suzanne.
A few interesting secondary characters, I believe the antihero deserves his own book. I also would love to read the boys of the band and Rose having their love story told.
There were some characters easy to love, some easy to connect and all of them easy to understand!
Cover: art 5/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This art definitely fits this story. I can see Gavin with Delaney, with the concert stadium as a background, the little guitar with the name of the series and the perfect, catchy title. I even like the love triangle sort of subtitle on the top, because is another snippet of information about the story. Different than for the first book, Delaney’s clothes is perfect for the event and mood of the cover. I would easily buy this book by its cover without reading the blurb!
Freshness: 5/5 It feels new, original, with fresh ideas. I love it!!! I like how the author has created the love triangle. I love all the feelings it evokes. I’m crazy about how they all have a past in common. Fresher than listerine!!!
Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 4/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 3.5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 4/5, twists 4/5 Good opening and perfect ending. It shouldn’t be a believable concept, but the author really makes it work. Dialogues written by a pro. The pace in this book was a bit slower than the first and I think the major conflict was solved pretty early. But this story still hooked the reader from the beginning, making it impossible to stop reading it. Love the setting and a few new unexpected twists!
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 5/5 O.M.G! This is a LOVE STORY! Really, this is the perfect romance. It has a swoon-worthy hero, with a cute heroine, a great antihero and a few good twists. They are hot for each other, but even during their steamer moments we can feel their love. Some great smut descriptions. 🙂
Writing Style: 5/5 I’ve definitely became a fan. Her characters are complex, her plot simple at the same time convoluted, her love story is hot and emotional. Can’t wait to read more from the author! Perfect writing!!!
I know, I always have to find something to complain, even with a series as perfect as this.
Plot: I have to say, the pace of this book wasn’t as good as the first. I guess because the main conflict was solved early and everything else felt a bit like small little problems, not really a major crisis.
Can I just say the hero is dreamy, hot, perfect! Everything!!!
Other thing I must say: the author is crazy good, crafty and a wordsmith. She not only wrote an amazing plot, but she wrote several songs that were complementing the plot. WOW
This is a MUST READ for everyone!!!
34/35 STARS – 5 STARS (between 33.5 stars and 35 stars)
Addictiveness: 5 Character: 4.5 Cover: 5 Freshness: 5 Plot: 4.5 Romance: 5 Writing Style: 5
Would I recommend? YES YES YES
Would I re-read this book/series? I’m certain I will.
Would I read more from the author? Can’t wait!
Yet here we are, on the top of the Eiffel Tower alone, on an intermission from the rest of the world as we privately celebrate our love and our future, as we luxuriate in each other’s kiss… just as we’ll do for the rest of our lives.
