Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood. When Cricket, a gifted inventor, steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
I really want to love this trilogy but for some reason I just can’t get into it. This one centers around Lola and Cricket Bell who is her next door neighbor. I did enjoy this book better than I did Anna and the French kiss but it was a little hard to get to. I really loved the characters but there were a few things that they did that I thought were a little over the top.I will still give the last book a try just to see how it ends but even though I did rate this one 4 stars I just couldn’t get into it. I would still recommend this one though, for anyone who likes a good romance book.
