First, I want to say that I read this book in less than 24 hours. It was glorious! It gave me all the feels that Anna and the French Kiss did and that itself is amazing! No second book has ever done that for me before. So this book follows Lola, she's quirky and cool. All she really wants is her fathers to like her older boyfriend (who's an ass); Max. They don't and I can't blame them at all. He's seems alright at first except the drugs part but he's bad news. I just want to smack him across his face.

Lola also hopes the twins never come back. She had a huge crush on Cricket before and her heart got broken. But the twins do end up moving back, duh otherwise there'd be no book. Cricket's room is right next to hers and so they begin to talk a little. Lola finds herself falling for him all over again and he clearly never got over her. Lots of drama ensues and lies keep them apart but it will all work out in the end our couple.

Cricket is adorable! I think I might actually like him better than St. Clair, which I thought was impossible. He's so sweet and charming and even quite quirky himself. He's so perfectly matched for Lola and you can see it plainly. They are so much better when they are together.

I love how much Lola grows in this novel and how she also learns to see Max for what he really is. It just took her too long for my liking, bad taste in judgement through. She does wise up in the end though and so I'm proud of her. I'm also glad that she accepted herself as well. Overall, if you like Anna and the French Kiss, then you're going to enjoy this one too. I can't wait though to go back to Paris for the next book.
