Focused (True Image Series Book 2) by Michelle Pennington {Review}

Focused (True Image Series Book 2) by Michelle Pennington
Kindle Edition, 291 pages
Published October 8th 2015
Sienna Whitfield never dreamed that using her photography blog for a social experiment would cause so much trouble—or be so painful. She might have a broken rib and a broken camera, but at least her mom is finally letting her date Lee, the guy of her dreams. Maybe it was worth it. Too bad some problems never go away—especially since new ones are even more complicated. And dangerous.


My Review: 4.5 Stars

You definitely need to read Candid before reading this one, as it picks up right where Book 1 ends. If you don't mind knowing what happens next, continue on.

Sienna is continuing on with her photography dream and now has her mom's permission to date her dream guy, Lee. I love the way their relationship progresses and the way they each look out for the other. They are a great compliment to each other and they have a fantastic chemistry. I love their parents and groups of friends, and the way their lives all mesh together.

Sienna is still a little impulsive and sometimes hides things from Lee because he is very protective of her. He's such a great gentleman and is pretty near perfect. With phenomenal talent, good looks, and a way of promoting loyalty and friendship, he's got a lot going for him and has a lot of big choices about his future to make. 

I became fully invested in this story, feeling like I was one of the characters. There is a mystery/suspense element to this book that really brings a new element to the series, climaxing in a very intense situation. I'm crossing my fingers that there's more to come because I wasn't done with these characters yet and don't want to leave them behind. 

The only little issue I had was with some editing. I normally blow things like this off, but there is a character, Riley/Rylie, who has her name spelled one way or the other interchangeably and it was a little confusing, as I kept thinking there was a new character.  
Content: swoony romance (there are some steamy kisses, a situation that almost gets out of hand, but stops, and a near attack); some violence (fights, mainly). I would consider it clean.
