4/5 Stars Choices Stories Open Heart Second Year

Summary:

You’re back at Edenbrook.

Additional Comments:

  • I loved that this one had some real danger.
  • The typical medical drama gets overshadowed by a hostage situation. It was a nice change of pace.
  • I think you even got to take a road trip.
  • As with book 1, I went Ethan’s road instead of Jackie or Bryce, though I did enjoy helping Jackie deal with the pharma rep and Bryce with big brother duty.
  • As with most of the Choices books, this one can go PG if you skip a few of the diamond options to very well not PG if you choose certain diamond options.
  • The characters in here are cool. There’s a nice variety of those who you want to punch and those you want to hug and hand a cookie to.
  • It’s cool that some of the characters show up in other books. This series has tie-ins to the newer story With Every Heartbeat. I think that one was a premium one for a while, but it recently released to those who choose not to pay a monthly rate.
  • It has enough closure to satisfy readers while at the same time leaving enough open to a book 3. I believe Book 3 is well under way, but I tend not to start them until they’re about 18 chs in so that it will finish by the time I’m ready for the ending.

Conclusion:

Medical drama and danger drama make for more satisfying stories.
