Ted on my blog The Second Time I Saw You follows on from The First Time We Met although it can be read as a standalone Lauren is beginning the new term at Oxford Social Media in Academia determined to move on from Alexander Hunt Of course Pippa throws us a great twist right at the beginning and Lauren s intentionson t come out as planned I loved The First Time We Met and Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream didn t think it could get much better but I was so pleased itidThis book is told from Lauren s POV who gives us the perfect insight into her and Alexander s steamy and chaotic relationship Lauren is very likeable and Alexander who at times felt a bit cold in the first book is much easier to get into the mind of as he has Orality in Igbo (African) Literature developed a lot in this book I liked how even though the story was told from Lauren s perspective we could still learn a The Second Time I Saw You The Oxford Blue Series Pippa CroftReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsStupidly I had another Muppet moment and it wasn t til I was reading this and kept thinking there was a lot of assumed knowledge that I realised this was book two and book one is The First Time We Met which I haven t read I will though as this is such a terrific story that its one for my rereadingkeeper files Despite not having read the first book it was easy to pick up the story and like Lauren I was in lovelust with Alexander but puzzled at his sudden character changes Then there s his younger sister having secrets that Lauren found out but she was asked not to tell Alexanderaifficult position one of those where you feel for her as whichever she Modern English in Action (Level 12) does is going to be wrong and you know the secrets will come out just at the wrong moment Then there s the wonderfully wicked ex she s a perfect bitch and Io so love one of those adds much needed for me Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms drama along with Lauren s friend ScottThere s snippets ofaily life tutorials at college with the sleazy Professor Rafe college parties and other functions Alexander s need for support at a really ifficult time and she needs to learn how to handle his moods and secrets it all adds up to a romance that s seriously hot and sexy tantalising and erotic and full of the Drama That I Love "drama that I love cracking read and I m really to read the first book to catch up and then to find out how the story ends It s a cliffhanger ending but not a too horrible one a mystery and it s ramatic but there s a hint of good in it tooWhat I hate about trilogies and The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal duos is the long wait between books but this one seems to have been brought out in a better way for readers like me with book one out 14 Feb book two 22 May and book threeue 11 September so reasonably short intervals I hate waiting 18 months or between parts I ve lost the momentum thenbut with a good trilogy like this out fairly uickly its also a pleasure to re read all three parts back to back once they re all out Well priced too at 399 for parts around 380 400 pages Stars Fabulous read just what a love so a full five ARC supplied via Netgalley This Oxford Blue series is seriously addictive I couldn t put it Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture down It was the wee small hours of this morning when I finished it and there aren t many books theseays that give me a book hangover DThe Second Time I Saw You starts or less where The First Time We Met left off Each Book Can Be Read As A Stand Alone But book can be read as a stand alone but The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) d recommend reading in order
