Book. Hangover. That is all!
Funny and serious at the same timeThis second book was definitely more serious than the first. It dealt with a serious topic that is taboo and still is in Samoa. The subject of rape/incest is never talked about within the aiga yet everyone knows it happens, keeping true the point about family reputation being above all. I liked how the writer talks about all these taboos and brings up the "hard topics" and then writes in a way that the character affected symbolically "overcomes" these. I felt al [...]
Secrets Always Come Out! Wow! Talk about from one extreme to the next. This book had me from laughing, saying dannngggg, to wtf, then angry and frustrated and back to lol! Another page turner that I did not put down. As an islander we all know too well our faasamoa culture and upmost respect for our elders in which we have. When skeletons in the family come out to haunt you as you get older and realise your parents weren't the perfect couple you've always seen and people admired! It was hard to [...]
Talk about developing a character! That's exactly what Lani Wendt Young did in the second book of the Scarlet Series! If you thought you knew Scar before, you really get a truer understanding of what it took to journey back to Samoa in this one! I just love how Lani explained Scar's relationships with her parents, sisters, and Jackson so fully, how Scar's arrived in this place in her life, and why Scar's fighting her relationship with Jackson! It's not only a journey back to Samoa for a wedding, [...]
HOLY SHIZNIT LANI!! A ton of secrets were definitely unloaded in this book and it broke my heart reading that part. It gutted me and I wanted to freaking kill that bastard myself and kick a few of those women's asses! But the strength it took for Scar to endure and finally set herself free by releasing it all to Jackson and mainly NaomiFreaking Awesome!!! This has always been a favorite quote of mine since you shared it with us on your blog."Scarlet, your voice, your hurt and your healing a [...]
Could this book have me wanting more or what?! The Jackson and Scarlet romance is so steamy and scandalous, the love I have for these characters make me laugh. This books is such a enticing book with so much hurt, love and happiness in one book, seriously can not get enough, although it always hit close to home. The history and secrets uncovered had me wanting more, knowing the background of the characters simply kept me interested. This is indeed an awesome book, it has me so frustrated I want [...]
What can I say about this book! I absolutely loved every bit of it! "Scarlet Series" book 1 & 2 are probably one of my favorite books this year, just waiting so very impatiently for book 3 Scarlet is in Samoa preparing for the epic Samoan wedding of the century. The women of the family are rough, their expectations are intense ( it kind of reminded me of My Big Fat Greek Weeding). More family secrets are revealed, more sexiness and a ton more Jackson. Scarlet Secrets will take you on an emot [...]
The continuation of the first book and so entertaining and funny!! Love all the culture you get as you read the book of all the aiga (family) and the relationships that have rules! Again, so funny and sexy and you can't help but want to help Scar see herself as a beautiful woman but you know by little tidbits that there is a reason that she can't see herself that way! I really want to know what she looks like but you don't really get that since she is narrating the book! Loved it! (It does have [...]
Scarlet continues to enthrall us with experiences on her return home for her sisters wedding. We learn of the secret she hasn't spoken of since she was sent away from home at age 16 and how it imprisoned her soul and free spirited self. I really loved this book and imagining the picturesque island nation of Samoa and its' customs and aiga. I can't wait to read the 3rd series!
This is so intense!Just when you think you know where the story is taking you, Wow! Everything about this tale is gripping and climatic! I can't wait to read about how Scar's story ends or really begins.
So good. So, so, so good. Even better than the first book. When does the next one come out?!
I enjoyed book 2. I've missed reading your work. I look forward to more books being released.
Blown AwayMoved to tears. Can't wait for book three! Great book! The author is an gifted writer, she had me entranced since the beginning!
Read it while in Samoa - good insight into samoan life
IM SAD IT ENDED.I loved that it kept me wanting more I wished there was more Beyonce! LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THEIR LOVESTORY: JACKSON!
