I remember really loving Broken, the first book, so I was very excited to start this! But, unfortunately, this ended up being kind of meh.
First of all, the relationship between Emma and Alex was cheesy AF! Seriously, someone check my teeth for cavities...
I don’t know why I felt this way this time around. I remember really liking the romance in the last book, but I guess in that one they were just starting to get to know each other. In this one, they were just disgustingly sweet.
The story itself was frustrating. Weird things are going on with Emma--she keeps disappearing and comes back with missing chunks of time from her memory. And for some reason, no one could figure out why when it was so glaringly obvious!
I mean, Emma is acting strange and Alex’s jealous ex-girlfriend is back to probably wreak havoc on his new relationship? Oh, I wonder what’s going on with Emma... NOT! Hailey is apparently super smart, meaning that she is totally capable of mind controlling Emma in some sort of science-y way. I don’t know how Alex didn’t figure it out -_-
There is also a tragic thing that happens to Emma, and apparently, there was only one way for Alex to help her. I did not like this. I mean, can you say hypocrite. *sigh*
There was one shocking plot twist there at the end involving Emma’s dead boyfriend Daniel which left me like, “What?!” It was brilliant! I also loved Alex’s best friend--he was so much fun! I actually really loved all the characters, despite the cheesiness.
And the whole Frankenstein bit was so great! It was quite action-packed, which I very much enjoyed. But there were some frustrating situations and the romance was too much even for my sweet tooth. Honestly, this was not a necessary sequel, but I admit that I enjoyed it overall :)
