Avoiding Responsibility (Avoiding series #2) by K.A. Linde

Avoiding Responsibility (Avoiding series; Book 2) by KA Linde

Book description via Amazon:

Lexi has finally given up her once destructive relationships and moved onto bigger and better things with a sexy new man in town. Just when she is starting to figure it out with him, her world is tilted once again with a phone call from none other than Ramsey Bridges. A year after his entrance into her life, Ramsey is trying to make amends and does the one thing she never expects—invites her to Jack’s wedding.

The wedding she had evaded at all costs. But no matter what she does, Lexi can’t seem to escape her past with Jack. But does she really want to?

Despite the explosive chemistry between Lexi and Ramsey, she is skeptical about trusting him after everything that has happened. When things are amiss with him, she starts questioning his motives. Can Ramsey be the one to remove Jack from Lexi’s life permanently or should she move on with her blossoming new life?

F***ING WOW. It comes as no surprise that I loved this sequel since I absolutely loved the first book (I’ve read it three times). K.A. Linde does not disappoint! Forewarning to those who haven’t read the first book, you may not want to read this review… In fact, what the hell is your life? READ THE FIRST! GO! NOW! Come back after you’ve read it and then proceed…

Linde uses the same writing style as the first book and alternates the chapters between past and present. The chapters of the present pick up about a year after the first book ended; we find out early on that Lexi and Ramsey had tried to work things out but something happened between them that caused them to separate for a month. Ramsey contacts her again, wanting to fix things, but of course, that means having to cross paths with Jack and Ramsey’s venomous sister, Bekah. The chapters of the past pick up not too long after first book left off; Lexi goes back to New York but due to unforeseen events she reconnects with Ramsey again. These chapters highlight her blossoming relationship with Ramsey and work up to unveiling the reason why she and Ramsey separated in the first place.

Okay, so that totally sounds really confusing but I really don’t want to give anything away. Basically, this book focuses on Lexi trying to have a fresh start with someone else other than Jack, but given their tumultuous past, she never knew it was possible and she still isn’t 100% sure she can do it. She wants a chance at an honest relationship with Ramsey but there’s just so much sh*t to lay out on the table. And is she really over Jack?

In my review for Avoiding Commitment I mentioned that I was torn between the two hotties BUT if you’ve been following me on twitter, I may have mentioned a time or two who’s team I was on. I won’t mention it now but I totally loved the direction this story went in. Like the first, this was a very emotional read. Lexi is a very stubborn person, but I am definitely TEAM LEXI all the way! I love her so much! She has definitely grown a lot throughout these two books. Linde did an amazing job with her character. She also threw in a few shockers that I didn’t even see coming (Touche, Linde, touche!). I will more than likely be reading this series again and again.

I love K.A. Linde’s writing style and her ability to capture the attention and emotions of her readers. She is one of my favorite authors and I will definitely be picking up her future books!
