Review ~ Sugar, We're Going Down (Love Me, I'm Famous, #2) by M.H. Soars

Sugar, We're Going Down (Love Me, I'm Famous, #2)
ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Release Date: February 18th 2017

Publisher: Self-published

They say nothing compares to the first kiss. That sentence needs to be amended. Nothing compares to the first kiss from Oliver Best. I knew in the moment our lips touched that the cocky rockstar would be forever imprinted in my mind. I also knew that loving him would be my destruction. And yet, love him I did. 

Oliver Best, former rockstar, heir to one of the largest fortunes in Great Britain, and the country’s most infamous bad boy. 

Saylor Blue Carter, college drop-out, lead singer of a struggling band, not a penny to her name. 

When they met, it was hate at first sight. Oliver was an arrogant ass. Saylor was a cold hearted bitch. These were the thoughts they had for each other. Until that kiss. That life altering, earth shattering, nuclear kiss. They knew what that kiss meant. They knew anything between them would be explosive and without hope for a happily ever after. So they vowed to forget, they tried to stay away. But now with their best friends’ wedding approaching, all bets are off. 

*Warning: This book ends on a cliffhanger. The sequel will be published on June 6, 2017

My Opinion

Yay, Ollie and Saylor!

I have been waiting for these characters to get their own book for ages. I fell in love with them in book 1 and couldn't wait to see how their palpable tension evolved.

Sugar, We're Going Down kept me hooked and turning the pages at a rapid rate. Written in Soars' easy style, I was swept along with the characters, being drawn into their love, fights, and torment.

The book definitely took a different turn to what I was expecting, especially Saylor's part. However, I found it a surprising twist that I did enjoy. It added more complications and plot to make this more than a simple romance.

As for the characters, the chemistry and tension between Ollie and Saylor was great. It built nicely in their game of cat and mouse and their denial of their true feelings. I thought the author did an amazing job of developing their feelings and relationship.

My only complaint is that this book left on a massive cliffhanger and is going to be in three parts. I've been desperately waiting for Ollie and Saylor's story, and while I'm glad I'm going to get a lot of them, I would have liked to know this up front. It wouldn't have stopped me reading or requesting it, but it would have meant I didn't spend the last 10% wondering how the author was going to tie everything up and make it satisfying--something that would have been impossible. I kept waiting to be let down rather than focusing on the book. I'm also not sure how three books are going to be filled right now, two seems to fit at the moment, but I can't wait to find out.

Overall, it definitely lived up to what I wanted from these characters and I can't wait for the next instalment.

EDIT: I received a copy from NetGalley where there was no cliffhanger warning. I notice there is on Goodreads.
