Isla and the Happily Ever After

We rated this book:


Isla has had a crush on the dreamy, artistic, Josh since their freshman year at the School of America in France. When Josh breaks up with his long-time girlfriend, a chance encounter between Isla and Josh seems to hint that the attraction is not one sided. They embark on a whirlwind romance; however, self doubts and family drama soon shakes the core of their relationship. Both must confront their own fears before they break them apart.

Fans of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door are in for a surprise with this one. The tone of the story is quite different from Perkins’s first two books though beloved characters like St. Clair, Anna, Lola and Cricket do make cameo appearances. Sadly, it was much harder to get as engrossed in Isla compared to the characters in the first two books. Thus, it was harder to sympathize with her feelings and behavior and she just came across as childish. The romance itself seemed so rushed that it doesn’t draw the reader in as completely either. This is by no means a bad book but missing the spark of the previous two titles.
