It’s pretty safe to say from my review of the first book I was pretty invested with the relationship between Dominik and Summer. Eighty Days Blue left me feeling a lot less invested in these characters. The most striking thing to me about this book at first glance is that cover. I mean it’s just gorgeous and makes you really curious abou the book.
The narrative returns with Summer being in NYC and Dominik still being in London. The distance is a huge hurdle for their relationship, but really the biggest hurdle is the two of them getting over their preconceived notions of what will or won’t work. I have to admit I spent most of my time reading this book wanting to yell at the main characters to get it together and realize how perfect they are for each other! It was aggravating to say the least.
Next I have to say that the good points in this book is that I feel as though Dominik and Summer both grew as characters a lot! And that is always a good thing. Dominik not only started to figure out what it meant to be a bottom, but also what he wanted from Summer. He explored his feelings a lot more I felt and realized how much he truly did care for summer in a lot of ways. Summer I felt really explored her feelings as well and started to realize what she did or didn’t want.
The downfall for me in this book really was too much back and forth and just nonsensical drama that wasn’t needed. As a book exploring the growth of the two main characters it was amazing, but the drama with Victor and others made it a less enjoyable read for me.
Overall 3 out of 5 stars. It’s worth the cash if you are invested in the series already, but otherwise I highly recommend reading the first book and not picking this one up after the amount of frustration I had with it.
