This was so much better than book 1. I enjoyed the characters, they were off beat, needy and greedy smart and vulnerable without being TSLT. I believed, I could see these events happening, I may not have liked the characters mostly but I believed their stories. It starts off right when book 1 ends, but the story moves to a different location, Los Angeles. Rich and fabulous meet up and coming, rules are different here, depending on who you know and your bank account. This was an E ticket ride up and down with steep curves at every turn. Oh that ending, let's say I wanted more finality.
