Yeah, a roller coaster… an emotional roller coaster. That’s exactly how I felt while reading EIGHTEEN AT LAST; it was way more emotional than I expected it to be.
❝ Sometimes I can’t believe Wilson’s only seventeen. She seems so much older.❞Yes, Max, haven’t you heard that girls mature faster than boys? I believe that is a scientific fact (sounds good anyway) – that is why you feel like you are on the same level, because mentally, you are ☺.
The story of Wilson and Max’s forbidden love affair picks up where the first book, ALMOST EIGHTEEN left off. Wilson is still sweet and semi-innocent in the month leading up to her eighteenth birthday – you know the day they can get down and dirty without Mr. Max getting arrested for having sex with a minor? Yeah, eighteenth birthday = really big day! They continue their steamy sessions of heavy petting… and licking… but they do their best to keep their romance on the down-low, but were they sneaky enough to keep their shenanigans secret? I know, but I'm not tellin'.
I loved Wilson, I felt like she had this sweet disposition that made the "girl-next door" title perfect for her. This is kind of how I pictured the Wilson we grew to love from ALMOST EIGHTEEN… the virginal Wilson:
❝ Bringing his lips to mine, he kissed me like I was a drug he craved more than life.❞Thank God! They FINALLY did it! But after a few rounds of doing the nasty, Wilson goes from the good girl next door to a wanton little hussie…
Oh Gretchen! Why do you torture us so? A cliffy? Boooooooo! Ok, so the dreaded cliffhanger isn’t terrible, but I am still counting down the days until the release of the third book, BEYOND EIGHTEEN. October 2nd is right around the corner, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for an ARC… *HINT* *HINT*
