"Lexi has finally given up her once destructive relationship and moved onto bigger and better things, namely Ramsey Bridges. But things are amiss with her new beau and she discovers things about him and his past that would make any girl turn the other way. And she's not sure his past can coincide with hers. A year after his entrance into her life, he's trying to make amends and does the one thing she never expects: invites her to a wedding...Jack's wedding. Find out what happens to Lexi as she deals with all the twists and turns that proceed from that question, throw in a few new players to shake up the mix, and don't forget all her old partners in crime."
Ms. Linde rocks my world. Seriously! Her books drive me crazy, flip my life upside down, and make me abandon all of my responsibilities. There were multiple times when I was reading this series that I wanted to step away from the characters for a second and take a breather, but I couldn't. The characters drove me completely bonkers. Their thoughts and actions made me want to punch someone in the face. But every time I thought about putting this book down, I started reading even faster. Trust me, this series is seriously, frustratingly addicting. Oh, it's good. It's really, really good. Just note that it is good in a frustrating, addicting, intense way.
I liked Avoiding Responsibility (Avoiding Commitment #2) by K.A. Linde even better than Avoiding Commitment (Avoiding Commitment #1), mainly because Lexi wasn't a big of an idiot in this novel. Oh, don't get me wrong...Lexi still makes some very Lexi-like decisions, but she is a little bit more mature, a little bit smarter, and a little bit stronger in this novel. I also liked how Ramsey had more of a staring role in thsi novel. I am a huge Ramsey fan so this made me very happy!
I absolutely LOVED the way this book ended. Since I have finished this book, I have been stalking Ms. Linde because I am trying to figure out if there is going to be another novel in this series or not. I have not confirmed this either way...yet. Personally, I am completely satisfied with the way Avoiding Responsibility ended, and I dread and welcome another novel in this series. If Ms. Linde wrote a third novel, I would 100% read it, but I must admit that I am glad to be walking away from the crazy train for a little bit. I am not ready to have my world wrecked again. Well, not yet.
I gave Avoiding Responsibility (Avoidining Commitment #2) by K.A. Linde 4 STARS. I strongly recommend this series.
