Susan’s Review: 4 stars
Ahhhh what a beautifully angsty second chance story!
Tristan and Sydney had so much chemistry! She’s loved Tristan since she was 8 and it took him a while to see her as something more than the cute little girl who hung out with his family. I was really surprised that she was willing to keep their relationship a secret, but I was glad she chose not to go with him all those years ago. Then, flash to know and they barely speak and she is still in love with him, but they try to keep their distance from one another and it just doesn’t work.
I have to say, I thought Tristan was a real jerk. He wanted what he wanted and didn’t take into account Sydney’s feelings and what she was telling him. I was glad there towards the end when she stood up to him and said she deserved better. Of course, that was just the kick he needed to realize he had been a jerk and that he was with her for his happiness, not hers. I don’t know that I’d have forgiven him quite as easily, but she has loved him forever LOL
I’m sad to say goodbye to this series. It was really great and I loved it all 🙂
