    Second Hearts begins with Charli in Africa with Mitchell It s been about a year since they left home and Charli is loving the life she has butshe s still madly in love with Adam And after a conversation with Mitchell, he convinces her that it s time to go to New York to see Adam, if she doesn t she ll always wonder what could have been So, she goes Lucky for her, Gabrielle owns an apartment for her to stay at, and sends Charli some New York appropriate clothes Naturally, everything fal Second Hearts begins with Charli in Africa with Mitchell It s been about a year since they left home and Charli is loving the life she has butshe s still madly in love with Adam And after a conversation with Mitchell, he convinces her that it s time to go to New York to see Adam, if she doesn t she ll always wonder what could have been So, she goes Lucky for her, Gabrielle owns an apartment for her to stay at, and sends Charli some New York appropriate clothes Naturally, everything falls into place, until she sees Adam Who now has a girlfriend Thankfully, Adam didn t see her that day, and she decides it s time to head home Except Gabrielle convinces her to stay, to stay because she actually likes New York not for Adam To cut this down, Charli gets a waitressing job that Adam partially owns with his brother, Ryan Fate is kind of funny, or crazy, or both Anyways, once Adam finds out Charli is in New York he immediately dumps Whitney and he and Charli quickly fall back into their relationship But not without a lot of drama Because Adam s mom hates her, and so do Adam s friends Seriously, there really isn t a Team Chadam there unless you count Ryan but he s cynical even at the best of times so things aren t all roses and butterflies And then, Charli and Adam do the unthinkable SPOILER ABOUT TO APPEAR They get married Which only infuriates the queen AKA Adam s mother, AKA Fiona This also infuriates Alex, who by the way, was way too absent in this book I kept thinking he and Gabrielle would appear or Charli would go visit but it never happened Anyways, Charli and Adam had a deal though, a promise, he finishes law school in two years and then they leave New York Because Charli is still a wanderer, an adventure seeker, and New York is dragging her down especially with all the family friend drama Of course, at the end we find out that Adam lied and he already accepted a job that will keep him in the city He was banking on the fact that they were married and that he d give her projects to keep her busy but that s not what Charli wants, and it quickly goes down hill But fear not, this is not goodbye, this is simply an , I ll see you later Because both Adam and Charli are at these times in their live where they can t compromise no matter how much they love each other So, in my opinion it was a cute story, though maybe not the ending most wanted but keep in mind It s a SERIES, they will constantly go back and forth until the last book which I hope there will only be three because anything over three usually kills me

    I finished the first book in this series, Saving Wishes, at 11 30 on a Monday night, not realizing it was part one of a series I immediately downloaded Second Hearts, but thankfully I had enough wits about me to wait until Tuesday to start reading it, or else I m sure I would have had to call in needing a mental health day I have read it twicesince.Second Hearts was enchanting I love these characters, even though some of them are at their worst in this book I love that this is a love s I finished the first book in this series, Saving Wishes, at 11 30 on a Monday night, not realizing it was part one of a series I immediately downloaded Second Hearts, but thankfully I had enough wits about me to wait until Tuesday to start reading it, or else I m sure I would have had to call in needing a mental health day I have read it twicesince.Second Hearts was enchanting I love these characters, even though some of them are at their worst in this book I love that this is a love story with actual, legitimate struggle in it, and that there s no expectation of the fairy tale ending I think that Charli and Adam will have their happy ending, and I think I m okay with their journey so far.Charli Blake is so special I wanted to live in her La La Land world as much as Adam did, I think I wanted to see what it would be like so I could take my daughters she made me believe in magic and see the need forof it in all of our lives.Moments in this book ripped my heart into little pieces, but other parts had my husband wondering what I was smiling about while I was reading.After I finished the book, I took a deep breath and wiped away my tears Then I downloaded Peter Pan and started researching fairies

    Ahhhh That is kind of how I felt by the end of this book The book picks up a year after Charli and Adam part ways and she realized she needs to go to NY and be with him Then I was enjoying the book and thinking how I like how it is a story of what happens after and Adam kept being kind of lame, but I kept giving him the benefit of the doubt and like no no, he is good I know Ryan was supposed to be the evil twin, but man I liked him WAYthan Adam in this book, especially after the ending Ahhhh That is kind of how I felt by the end of this book The book picks up a year after Charli and Adam part ways and she realized she needs to go to NY and be with him Then I was enjoying the book and thinking how I like how it is a story of what happens after and Adam kept being kind of lame, but I kept giving him the benefit of the doubt and like no no, he is good I know Ryan was supposed to be the evil twin, but man I liked him WAYthan Adam in this book, especially after the ending Up until about 40 pages from the end I was loving the story and couldn t wait to see where it would end up Then view spoiler it is revealed that Adam lied from the time they got back together in NY until this moment He NEVER planned on leaving NY, but told Charli as they are getting married that yes, of course he will go anywhere she wants once he finishes school I am sorry, but no Small lies to surprise someone or spare someones feelings are fine, but this is a big freakin deal and super selfish and horrible of Adam I mean Charli put up with a lot of nastiness from his family and friends, and you say you love her, but man the past year or so has just been a lie Not cool I know there is supposed to be a next book, but I don t know that I will read it I mean I do not under any circumstances want them to get back together She deserves MUCH better than Adam Much better I hate him now from this book and it is sad as I loved him in the first book He was just horrible in this one Ugh Way to ruin it with the ending hide spoiler

    Oh, boy Someone please tell me that the next book is out very soon, because I need it I was totally hooked by the end of Saving Wishes see my review , and now I ve been sucked in even further Second Hearts has a different kind of feel to it, but I expected that Saving Wishes was about the magical beginning of a relationship, while Second Hearts is about what happens next There are still hints of magic here and there when Charli arrives in New York she s full of hope and her usual impulsiv Oh, boy Someone please tell me that the next book is out very soon, because I need it I was totally hooked by the end of Saving Wishes see my review , and now I ve been sucked in even further Second Hearts has a different kind of feel to it, but I expected that Saving Wishes was about the magical beginning of a relationship, while Second Hearts is about what happens next There are still hints of magic here and there when Charli arrives in New York she s full of hope and her usual impulsive self Fate isn t going to let her have it easy though, and it s not too long before she starts to lose sight of La La land.Oh no Charli can t lose it La La land is my favourite place to be I adore Charli s tales of random fairies and nonsensical folk lore But when everything you believed has been torn apart and you re in a strange city, it s difficult to maintain your optimism I feel like I m speaking in riddles a little here, but I m loathe to give anything away You have to want to read it yourself.Then there s that moment That part in the book where everything is as happy as can be, and you just want things to stay like that forever Unfortunately, at this point there s still a couple of hundred pages to go, and you now deep down that it s not going to be plain sailing.In a way, what happens is an echo of the story of Saving Wishes, but it s on Adam s territory this time and that makes a big difference Can he make Charli want to stay, or can she make him want to leave with her It seems cruel of fate to bind two people so tightly when they have such different dreams and goals Are either of them weak enough to give in Weak, I hear you ask Is it weakness to give up your dreams to be with the one you love Yes it is, because no matter how deeply in love you are, if you re not where you want to be, doing what you want to do, you re never going to be completely happy and that can turn love sour.I fell in love with Charli all over again She can be evil, bolshy and whimsical, and she drives most people nuts, but she s all kinds of amazing We get to see a different side of Adam too, one that I m not loving, but one that srealistic When Adam met Charli, he was on holiday from himself as well as his life Seeing him on home turf, back in his own habitat, of course he s going to be different Some other great characters are introduced too, to replace the ones Charli left behind in Tasmania Adam s brother Ryan has to be my favourite He s the archetypal man whore with a secret romantic heart I would love to see a spin off of his story Fiona, Adam and Ryan s mother, is another great character She s so aloof and proper most of the time, but then she lets go occasionally surprising bitchiness Even dim Whit is an interesting addition to the cast.If you haven t read Saving Wishes, I implore you to go and do so If you have, what are you waiting for Get Second Hearts right now and prepare yourself there will be tears, and you will be mad at Walker Smith s audacity in leaving us on our knees, begging forARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review Originally posted at
