The second in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, Lara Jean is back and this time she’s attempting a real relationship with lacrosse player Peter Kavinsky – although they still have their adorkable contract, amended this time. Lara Jean gets to discover the ups and downs of her first real relationship.
This is one of those fluffy YA romances that you can’t really “dislike.” Despite the fact that I didn’t feel it was entirely well written – especially considering I’m not sure that even naive Lara Jean could possibly be so immature in her thinking, at the age of sixteen – it’s not really possible to say it wasn’t a cute read. Who doesn’t love the nostalgia of the ups and downs of a first love.
This time around, Lara Jean also has John Ambrose McClaren walk into her life, so watch out Peter! There’s a bit of drama there, but otherwise, for the most part it’s the typical rollercoaster of two young people navigating a new relationship in an innocent way; despite antagonist Genevieve (Lara Jean’s old bestie) there to stir up drama.
It was cute. It was fluffy. It was light. And sometimes those are the kinds of books you need in your life at that moment.
