I thought that this was a good read. It was sort of hard to keep up with all that was going on, but this was my first read in the series as well. It took me a little bit to get caught up and orient myself with who was with who. I felt like I was in the middle of a soap opera though. Lots of drama and other things going on so there was no lull in the story at all.

Riley had just meet back up with an old fling, Ariela, and they are trying to make a go at a getting back together again. They have decided to talk each night to get to know each other again, but there has been a little wrench thrown in their plans when Shelby, a girl Riley has seen a few times, shows up and claims to be pregnant with his baby. We soon learn that Shelby is a gold digger just like all the other ladies that have told Riley they are pregnant with his child. Shelby has learned how to play the game and she is really pregnant. Shelby never expected for Riley to ask for a paternity test so soon though. Will the paternity test be the end of her gravy train with Riley? We will have to wait and see. Ariela was not happy about this but she tells him that it was before they started talking again so that they would figure something out to make it work.

Aiden and Keatyn are expecting and she is traveling with her acting career. Their relationship seems new to me because they seem to still be in the honeymoon phase.

Vanessa and Dawson have a lot going on in this one as well. Dawson spills everything about what happened with his wife and why she committed suicide. Dawson has brought his girls to try the school out and to see if they want to move in with Vanessa and him. His mother-in-law is not very happy about this at all. Dawson says that the girls need to be with him though.

This was a fast paced, quick read that will keep you on your toes trying to keep up with everyone. I have to say that I hope to be able to go back and read the earlier ones here soon because this seems like a great series to me. I am sure that we will get another installment soon because of the way that this one ends.
Review by Melanie H.

 I’m wearing a huge smile as I get dropped off at my building and walk through the door, talking to Ariela on the phone. Having her come back into my life after so many years has been both excruciating and exhilarating. But this weekend changed things. We faced our past together and, in one week, we’re going to decide if we want to pursue a future together. As much as I want to be with her, honestly, I’m a little torn about it. Part of me wants nothing more than to pretend we never broke up. But the reality is that she’s married. And even though she filed for a divorce, I wonder if it’s too much too soon. In a very short time—on a whim—she came to California, was reunited with me, slept with me, filed for a divorce, got a new job, and went back to Eastbrooke. I mean, how many more life changes can she throw at herself all at once? I loved her with everything I was in high school, and I was devastated when she left with nothing more than a goodbye. And since she’s come back, she’s wreaked more havoc in my life. Soon, I’ll have to decide if I want to risk another relationship with her. Even though she still looks like the girl I loved, she’s different—life, age, and time have that effect. “Riley!” A shrill voice stops me in my tracks, wiping the smile off my face. “Shelby, what are you doing here?” I ask, as she gets up from the couch in the lobby. “I told you I didn’t want to see you again.” “I need to talk to you, Riley. It’s important. Can I please come up?” I know girls like her. No way I’m letting her come up. Ever. “Shelby, as in naked, leather-strap, threesome Shelby?” Ariela asks in my ear. “Uh, hang on,” I say to her, putting the phone against my chest. Then I say discreetly, “Shelby, whatever you need to say, you can say here.” “God, you’re such an ass,” she hisses loudly. “I thought you might want to do this in private.” “I don’t want to do anything with you, in public or in private.” “Well, you’re going to have to now, Riley. Because I’m pregnant,” she says, uttering the words no man wants to hear from a three-night screw. “You’re what?” “Do you really want to do this here?” she asks, glancing toward my doorman. “Fine. Come up.” I drag her into the elevator. Once it closes, I say, “I don't know who you’ve been fucking, but if you’re pregnant, there’s no way that it’s mine.” “Yes, it is, Riley. I haven’t been with anyone since we broke up.” “We didn’t break up. You went to a few events with me. We fucked. And I used a condom every single time.” She shrugs. “I don’t know what to tell you. They aren’t one hundred percent effective. I’m sorry, Riley. I certainly didn’t plan on getting pregnant.” “Aren’t you on the pill?” “No, it made me fat.” I shake my head. I can’t fucking believe this. But I’m not stupid either. I go into my guest bathroom, grab a pregnancy test out of the cabinet, and then hand it to her. “Take this.” “Why do you have that?” “Honey, you’re not the first girl to tell me she’s pregnant.” I open it up and hand it to her. “Go pee on it, bring it out, and we’ll watch. See what happens.” She hesitates, just as they all do. “Um, I don’t know if it will work yet. I’m barely pregnant.” “So you didn’t do a test?” “Yes, I did a test, Riley. God, you’re being such an ass.” She’s right. I am. “I’m sorry. Please, for me, go take the test.” “I will, I’m just saying that they aren’t all as accurate as the one I took.” She lets out a dramatic sigh and goes into the bathroom, not bothering to shut the door. When she sees me watching her pee, she gives me a sexy smile. I turn around. Fuck. Of course, that’s what got me into this mess. Please, please, don’t let her be pregnant. I hear the toilet flush and turn around. “Here’s the stick, Riley. I’m going to sit down. Pregnancy is exhausting.” She flops down on my couch while I stare at the stick, willing the line not to change. But it does.
