I read The Kiss almost a year and a half ago and I was dying to get my hands on the sequel (which I didn't know existed initially). I was dying to read more of Ty and Poppy. They were such a great couple, imperfect yet perfectly normal. However what we find out in this book is Ty and his band are currently at the top star status (think One Direction to little teen girls). Poppy hasn't seen Ty other than through Skype for several months and when the chance to see him at a nearby music festival arises, she takes it.
Of course I knew there will be trouble in paradise. There wouldn't be a plot if the relationship wasn't tested or shaken up for us. However I became really impatient and frustrated with both Ty and Poppy's behavior. I just couldn't understand their feelings or the way they acted based on said feelings. I wished we had more scenes with the two of them but both being famous (him crazy famous while her famous by association as well as the writer of The Kiss Off) made it almost impossible for them to hang out without being interrupted.
I think what comes down to it is not my enjoyment level, because I really did like Over It (not as much as The Kiss Off but pretty close) but my problem was with the ending. When I reached the last page, I couldn't believe it and even flipped to the next page thinking there is still something. I was about to cry until I found that there is a third book in the series, then I breathed a sigh of relief but still.. I can't wait that long!
Aside from the problems with Ty and Poppy, I really liked Poppy's cousin and his situation with both of Poppy's friends. A ton of hilarious scenes are a result of these three people. Of course I can't not love Ty's band mates. I have a soft spot for them, especially how much they seem to like Poppy! I definitely recommend this contemporary series because I personally think it's different from the usual contemporaries. I personally can't wait for the third book!
