How do you deal with choices when you don’t know how?
Lena has always been a quiet and private person, who only talks to people she knows and doesn’t stray outside of her comfort zone. She refuses to admit to anyone but herself that she has a crush on Tyler, the roommate of a friend’s boyfriend.
When Tyler starts making excuses to spend time with her, she can’t help but like the attention, however awkward she may find social interaction. The problem is, Lena knows next to nothing about dating. Everything she knows has come from a romance book, and she is too socially inept to be able to act like the women in her books. Will she be able to summon the courage in order to go on the date she so desperately desires?
A quick read filled with friendship, love, and trashy romance books.
3 out of 5 (good)
EMBRACE THE CHOICE is the second book in The Choice series and we meet Lena, a roommate of Ali's, as she tries to navigate her way around dates and social interactions.
Lena has never had a date, or been kissed, and likes reading books and studying. Not exactly the party girl of the group. Tyler is Noah's roommate and has liked Lena for a while, before he starts thinking of excuses to spend time with her.
This was a quick, fun read. You don't get a lot of details and it is all told from Lena's point of view. I would liked to know what Tyler's thoughts and feelings were. I also felt that, although it appears their story is wrapped up nicely, it did end abruptly. It was also good to see Ali and Noah's relationship progressing although they obviously weren't the stars of the show this time.
A good addition to the series and one I enjoyed. If you fancy a quick coffee-break book, I have no hesitation in recommending this one.
