My Strong ****4 STAR**** Review

If you haven’t already read Sophie’s Turn, stop here! Go read Sophie’s Turn first! You can check out my review on Sophie’s Turn HERE.

So, Sophie and Dan are growing up. But, they have found themselves firmly in the friend zone with each other, and Sophie believes she’s found her dream guy. Then things in Rachel’s life go crazy, which leads to a HUGE upset between all of them.

Let me start by saying that I completely fell in love with Dan in this book. I liked Dan in the first book, but let’s face it; he definitely wasn’t marriage material. This book – different story!! (Although he does screw up big one time – but I don’t think that would have happened if he would have been with Sophie.) And Sophie?? Oh, I was so proud of the way Sophie had grown between the first and second books. She still has growing to do (don’t we all???), but there were no major character flaws present this go around. At the beginning of the story you get to ride along as Dan and Sophie get some real bonding time as friends. During this time, I found Dan absolutely hilarious! I spent the first half of the book laughing and swooning over him. There were times I was completely giddy!
Then enters Steve, Sophie’s “dream guy”. I couldn’t help but like Steve. However, I just never felt that amazing chemistry between Sophie & Steve that I knew existed between Sophie & Dan. At times, things between Sophie & Steve just seemed awkward. It’s not long after Sophie & Steve find their groove that things all turn haywire, though. Sophie gets a HUGE SHOCK, and find herself running for the hills.

The ending was happy for Sophie, so I couldn’t help but be happy for her. However, I was gritting my teeth. It wasn’t the ending I wanted, but now I have so much hope that I’ll get that ending in Sophie’s Encore. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on this final book!! I must also say that I would absolutely LOVE to get Rachel’s story. I’m hoping that Nicky plans on writing it!! The little taste you get of Rachel’s story in this book is enough to leave you BEGGING for more!!

So, a STRONG 4 stars!!!! I can’t wait to get more of Sophie and Dan!!!!
