Review: Isla and The Happily Ever After

Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

The last and finally book. I have to admit that I was a bit anxious when reading this story. I have adored the first and second in the series and wondered if the third would do the series  justice.

Plot: This story follows Isla who is in the city when she meets Josh. The plot moves at a steady pace giving the reader exactly what they expect. A good friendship turned into love, then the troubles of love come along. I didn’t have any problem getting into the story or following it.

Love: This is the one area I did have a problem with. It seemed to me that their love was intsa-love. One minute they meet and the next their in love. I really wanted to be wooed. I like their adventures as a couple and learning to have a long distance relationship but it all felt rushed. Like there wasn’t enough time to basked in their romance cause it got filled up with drama.

Ending: The ending was as suspected. They get into a fight and then they get back together forever. I like the HEA but really I expected more.

For me, this story is good.  I honestly prefer the first and second book than this one. Still, the story covers all the bases for a YA romance and if you need that teenage angst then go for this one.
