Well, it's better than the first one.
I'd originally decided not to bother with the second instalment, after being so thoroughly unimpressed by the first, but then I found out that it was about Stockholm Syndrome and falling in love with your enemies, yada yada yada. And I'm a sucker for that stuff. I don't know why, but I'm fascinated by Stockholm Syndrome, so I had to read this one.
Except...there really isn't anything like that in this book. Okay, so after a while she makes goo-goo eyes at the 'bad' guy (and I put that in inverted commas because he is so clearly not a bad guy and that's clear within, like, a page of him entering the story) and there's a kiss that takes place at a really strange moment, but that's it. He doesn't even kidnap the girl like I was led to believe, not really. She's in the dungeon at the proper bad guy's house for like an hour before the clearly-not-a-bad-guy helps her escape. And then it's back to the exact same crap I didn't like about the first book. And then the clearly-not-a-bad-guy gets locked up and she starts to fancy him. It's like reverse Stockholm Syndrome. Sort of. I can't find an eloquent way to put it because it's all really stupid. There's not really another word for it.
That being said, I am almost definitely going to by the third book in the trilogy now, because I've invested this much time into reading the first two and I do kind of want to know who the main character (I refuse to call her by her name, see my review of Switched for more details on that) ends up with. I hate myself for it, but I do need to know and simply looking it up on Wikipedia isn't going to be enough. So, here's hoping she doesn't write a fourth book.
