Review | Split Second (Pivot Point #2) by Kasie West

“He sighed. “Does it get tiring?”
“Always thinking you’re right.”
I smiled. “No, not really. It’s other people not realizing I’m right that gets tiring.” – 3.5/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: advanced abilities, library books, water bottles, bronze bulls, enhancements, soda cans, illusions, modified toasters and lost letters.

Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too… but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories… once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot… and a future that could change everything.

This book feels a bit different from the first one. I really liked the first book, Pivot Point, because I liked reading about Addie’s possible futures and you keep on guessing which path she would decide to take… and this one doesn’t have that. 

I once tried to read this book before, but at the time I felt a bit bored and I never finished it. Surprisingly, the same thing happened this time! But to be fair, I don’t think the book is boring or is lacking action, but the dynamics are very different compared to the first one, and that for me was what made it interesting.

What we do have in this book is the continuation of the decision made by Addie, but there are not a lot of decisions made in this, which was a bit disappointing. A cool thing we get in this one is both Laila and Addie’s points of view. Layla is a very interesting character, and I was glad Kasie gave her a spotlight in this book! She’s very different from Addie, so it was interesting to see her own thoughts and opinions.

The conclusion to the story was okay too, but I wanted more. I still liked it, but I definitely prefer the first book!
