It seems to be sequel week here at A Kiss At Midnight Reviews because I’m here with another one for you. Not long ago, we read Shades of Sydney by Brittney Coon. There she met Jason and stopped her alcohol fueled one night stands to actually let a boy in. Spoilers if you haven’t read the first book! Find out what happens in Breaking Down Sydney
Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Overall Rating 5/6 Glass Slippers
I love sequels but hate reviewing them because I feel you are limited with what you can say. This will be a shorter review than normal.
Sydney had her list of summer boys. She would party all night, bang whoever looked right, and then slink on home by the moonlight. But now she is back in school and ready to get serious. Though there is one problem, Jason lives in a whole different state. Sydney just started believing in relationships in the first place, now she has to believe in a long distance one?
Jason, the true hero of this story, doesn’t let Sydney doubt anything. He is there for her, in more ways than one, and keeps reminding her what they have to fight for. But will it be enough for Sydney? What happens when the party gods start calling her? Will she answer or will she turn to Jason when tragedy strikes?
Sydney is one of those characters that makes it hard to love her. You want to scream and yell at the book because you become so invested in the relationship that you NEED Sydney to make the right choices. Jason touches your heart so much and you just want him to be happy with Sydney.
Happy surprise, Hunter and Amelia, the best friends of Jason and Sydney are back and I’m thrilled. They provide a beautiful foil and I think that Coon was very clever to set her story up this way.
As for the sex scenes, again, Coon doesn’t disappoint! But remember, Coon’s scenes are not for the faint of heart. You need to be prepared for a Sydney Sex Scene which is different from ones that you’ve red before. Remember, she is a player and knows her way around the bedroom.
I love this series and I hope that you take the time to enjoy it too. Book 3 review, Piecing Together Sydney, will be posted next!
