~*EXCERPT*~Unable to take it much longer, I needed to clear my head. I rushed off, passing the restroom in the waiting room and darted into it. I locked the deadbolt behind me, thankful it was a single person restroom. I leaned back against the cold tile wall, and it was as if the walls of the Hoover Dam had come crumbling down. Tears rushed down my cheeks, soaking my face. My body was so heavy that I could hardly stand. I began to slide down the wall until I was sitting on the floor, my arms using every ounce of their might to keep my legs pulled up as they pressed against my huge belly. My body rocked back and forth, each sob ripping through harder than the last. My cell phone began to ring in my purse, but I had no energy to answer it. It continued ringing, but my cries soon drowned out the sound. After what must have been minutes, although it seemed like an eternity, a pounding started on the door of the restroom.
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
I rated Hourglass Squared FIVE LEAVES!!
After reading Hourglass I was so excited to hear that Brooke & Savannah's stories continue! A little background, Brooke and Savannah have been best friends forever. They had a few battles to fight because they were dating the same guy. Luke was very aware of what he was doing and that he had both of the girls go against each other. Brooke and Savannah become a power duo to take down Luke. Having recovered from Luke, they are now with the twins: the most eligible bachelors in Denver. Two best friends marrying twin brothers and the girls becoming sisters. The girls get married within a month from each other. Everything is going to way they have planned, until a baby comes in the picture!
In the first part of the book we find out that Brooke and Josh are pregnant! When they tell Savannah and Jake, Josh's twin brother, Jake is ready for him and Savannah to start on having babies. Knowing that both girls are the complete opposite of each other. Brooke is the sweet one, wanting the love of being a mother. Then we have Savannah who is feisty and doesn't want to be a mother yet. She is wanting to continue having fun with her new husband and having a successful career. Brooke and Savannah compliment each other very nicely and is what every girl wants in her best friend. They are made for each other; they are protective of each other and will always have each other's backs. As the girls face many battles thrown at them they will have a bond that will never shatter. I also need to mention their sexy husbands more! I love getting to know Josh and Jake throughout the book. They are absolutely head over heels in love with their wives and will do anything to make their wives happy.
Of course, sleazeball Luke has to weezle himself in this story. Ugh! I will have admit, when I heard there was going to be a second book I was very curious as to see what ever happened to Luke. Had he changed his ways or is he still the same?
This is one of the best author collaborations I have ever read and I can't wait to read more from these lovely ladies! This series is probably on my top 5 reads of 2014. Just like book one, I was hooked from the first page to the last page and was left with my heart pounding. I felt so many emotions reading this book. Each page drew me in and made me read on until I reached the end in one setting.
