Let me tell you, the second book in the series was a complete flip from bk 1. For me at least.
Let Me In deals with Tiffany; Caitlyn’s only foster sister that she ever really grew close to.
Like Caitlyn, Tiffany only had one relative that she could ever depend on. But unlike Caitlyn, Tiffany’s relative; her grandmother wasn’t much of a role model seeing that Tiffany had to take care of her while trying to insulate herself from all the verbal abuse hurled her way. The reason why behind the abuse is briefly explained and the consequences from that are not fully developed, I’d have loved to seen more on that.
When Tiffany finally leaves her grandmother’s house, she takes a job as a house sitter for a music producer who spends all his time in New York while leaving his Maine country house empty. The location is perfect since it’s right across the water from her grandmothers who she can keep an eye on.
But it’s not long before Tiffany and Devin meet for the first time. And when they do, the spark is instantaneous. But Devin holds out because Tiffany is only 18 and he is 30, which is kind of a remarkable story line I think with the older man/younger woman struggle. But don’t forget Devin has a crazy soon to be ex-wife on his hands that adds to the conflict in this book, which is only really drawn out when Devin finally decides the difference between ages is just a number.
I wouldn’t exactly say I fell in love with this book. Sure, it drew me in, and I couldn’t put it down for days on end. The sexual tension was what kept me reading though….which I love which I didn’t get as much in bk 1, although you could tell Heath and Cat were nuts for each other. The tension between Devin and Tiffany was dynamic and intense, but I think I liked it so much because of the older man/younger woman scenario. That’s just my thing.
Oh…and because of the dog.
It had its charming moments, but again like with bk 1 there wasn’t really any huge conflict until the end and even then, it wasn’t made out to be a big deal.
Devin’s wife was pretty emotionally unsteady, and I just felt that it should have been interweaved more than it was throughout the story than all at once at the end. From this point forward I would recommend reading this series.
I can’t wait to dive into Aubrey’s story, Let Me In.
