I think this banner will only make sense to those who have read the book. I wanted it to represent my favorite scene. I’m just not sure how successful I was on execution. I’m thinking not so much. 😛

I was so excited to read this book that I requested it from both the publisher and from Netgalley, and I somehow ended up with two copies of this book. What can I say? I love Rachel Harris’s books that much that I badly wanted this book. This one’s extra special because it’s the last of the series, and I’ve been waiting for it ever since the release of A Tale of Two Centuries last year.
I’ve loved Cat Crawford ever since the first book of the series, and I was excited to get back to her story. But I must admit that I didn’t like Cat very much in this book. I felt like she was worse off than when she first started. At the face of her mother – someone who has been absent most of her life – she just folded. I felt like she wasn’t the Cat that I met in the first two books. Maybe I just don’t know what it’s like to have a parent who left me at 5 years old, but I just really didn’t get how she easily forgot who she was. It took something drastic for her to realize her mistakes. I still love her. I just wish that she showed more of her strong and feisty side.
Fortunately, this book was also told in Lucas’s perspective, and him I loved for the most part of the book. He also has his own fair share of problems, but he remained present and strong for Cat. Lucas was just so nice and sweet. He definitely knows how to make the girls swoon. I especially love the date he planned for Cat. I also love that he’s very passionate about his art. A lot of familiar characters will show up as well, and some new ones would also be introduced. Although I wish to have seen more of Alessandra and Austin.
OVERALL, My Not So Super Sweet Life was wonderful, but I also honestly wish for more. It was the shortest of the books in the series, and I didn’t get enough of a hit to feed my addiction to Rachel Harris’ writing. She was still her funny and entertaining self, but there’s a little more drama in this one though as compared to the first two books. Things will fall apart before they can be whole again, but I’m glad of how things turned out in the end. I definitely want a paperback to complete my series collection.
