Review of 'Delusions (Affinity #2)' by Christina Smith (Review by Sparkles)

Synopsis: Can Fate be wrong? When all signs point to a certain someone, do you just blindly follow whether you like them or not? What if that person turns out to be someone you hate? Could Destiny be so cruel?

Lisa Miller is a typical seventeen-year-old, busy with family, work, friends and...revenge. Her last summer in high school should be spent having fun. But ever since Logan Tate played a prank on her two years ago, she doesn't have much of a social life, instead, spending her free time trying to get even.

Unfortunately Logan's not making it easy for her; he's trying to convince her that he has changed. But she is not fooled by his charming personality, and stunning good looks. No one can change that drastically.

Things aren't much better at home. Ever since her father left a year and a half ago, she refuses to speak to him, causing tension with her mom and sister.

As if she didn't have enough problems, someone is sending prank emails and phone calls, mysteriously knowing about the dreams she's been having. Who would do such a thing, and how could they know?

Review:  *I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Ugh, where do I start?

I would first like to say that I thought it was a little bit of a stretch that the same super rare thing that was happening to Lucas has also been happening to his twin brother. I think that because of this the book should have been a standalone and not part of a series. With that being said,.....

I thought this was a FANTASTIC book. Even better than the first one. We get to reconnect with Sarah and Lucas from the first book, because let's face it, who was ready to let them go? And at the same time we get a whole new insight into Logan. I guess I wasn't the only one who read the first in the series and wanted to know more about Logan. Is Logan not amazing? I mean at first he is full of "jackassery" (yes, that is a quote taken directly from the book!) but he totally redeems himself by the end. Besides, you can't really hate him for it. Lisa is full of "jackassery" herself in this book.

I enjoyed the entire ride that Christina Smith took me on. From beginning to end. I loved to love and hate the characters equally. PLUS, Christina Smith is one of the only authors that I've had the pleasure of reading that can fool me so completely right to the very end of the book. After reading the first book in the series, I sort of knew what to expect in this one. It made it that much more fun to read knowing that I would be have to read straight through to the end before she let me in on the secret.

Really great read that I would most definitely recommend to any fans of Christina Smith, anyone who read the first one, and pretty much anyone who enjoys a good book!
