Two girls. One guy. This spells trouble... Rich might have a few cash-flow problems, but at least he's got a flat, his freedom and the girl of his dreams. Well, almost. Potia doesn't like him having a flatmate and wants Rich and his flat all to herself. But Bonny has nowhere else to go... 

My Review
This book takes off right from where book 1 ended. 
The deal with the design company has fallen through, but Rich is still living in the flat above Nick's company and getting the odd bit of storyboard work so life isn't all bad, but now he's got the girl of his dreams, he has to try to hold onto her, and she is jealous of his new flat mate.
I thought Rich was starting to grow up in book 1, not a lot but he was making gradual progress, now he's with Portia and acting like a love sick puppy. It's obvious that Bonny likes him but he's too blind to see it, although the chemistry between them is very well written and oozes off the page.
I can't stand Portia, she is a spoilt brat that needs a good talking to. She the typical Queen Bee, self-centered and wants everything she sees. But only for as long as it holds interest to her.
This book focuses more on the relationship than Rich's life in general, although he is having to sort himself out, especially with college, he is close to being kicked out and has to fight to get back in his teachers good books. I read this one just as quickly as the first one and I had really started to get to know the characters and i could see them growing up and becoming more. Rich didn't annoy me as much, but he did tend to get quite whiney over Portia, and there is some more rude bits in this book. He seems obsessed with wanting to sleep with Portia. 
I wanted to know more about his art and friends than that all the time, it started to get a bit repetitive.
However I still see this as a bit of light reading, a short girly book that once again is told from the boys point of view. A perfect summer day read, enjoyable but not life changing.
So for what it is, I enjoyed it and it is well written, but it's no Epic read!

My Rating
