Review | Under the Lights (The Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines

“In life you face obstacles, and you have to fight through them. If you’re lucky enough, you find someone to fight for you, too. I was lucky.” 4/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: blueberry muffins, chocolate chip cookies, heritages, tree houses, family secrets, stolen kisses, elite families, broken homes, bad decisions, sweet grandmas, grief and love triangles.

In the follow-up to Abbi Glines’s #1 New York Times bestseller Until Friday Night—three teens from a small southern town are stuck in a dramatic love triangle.

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

Since I like this type of YA books, this was another good read for me. I usually go for more romantic books like the first book in this series, but I’m loving this series and how different the books are. 

The books in this series are companion novels, which means they are placed in the same universe but each book focuses on different individuals within the group of characters. This is one of my favorite formats because I like to see how different the characters are and how they all interact. It’s still a romance book, but not like the first one. This story is way more complex than the first one. Both main characters have a lot going on!

This book has a love triangle, which made it very interesting, but I’m thinking about how unnecessary it was. The story would have been perfectly fine without it.

I wish there was a more complete conclusion to the story. At least one more chapter or an epilogue to describe a bit better what happened in the end. But it honestly doesn’t bother me that much.

I’m loving revisiting these books! They are perfect for a binge reading session.
