Momma's Review
After devouring the first book in this series I was excited to jump right into Eighteen At Last by Gretchen de la O.  The problem was that I was a little worried.  There seems to be a pattern of second books in a series falling flat but that was completely untrue for this series!  This second in the series was better than the first!  It's packed with so much more angst and drama that I couldn't stop reading and was up so long that I saw sunrise through my bedroom window!
While it's true that our heroine is only a month older than she was in the first book, she is hit with situations that are much older than she is.  She has to deal with extended family, jealousy and betrayal.  Because of this you get to watch her grow and start to change....even if she does make some stupid ass choices!
While I was reading the book I thought that it was missing more of what happened when she got back to school...the sneaking around that I was expecting but after finishing the book I can see why it was left out.  Adding that would have made the book trashy.  Gretchen de la O has this amazing way of writing great sex scenes without having to use words like moist, shaft or folds!  It's no secret that I am a lover of smut and my kindle probably shouldn't be looked at my anyone under the age of 18, but the way this story was written was really refreshing.  After reading tons and tons of dirty scenes it was nice to read about sex without it being porn......and no I don't have a fever ;)
Watch out cause book two has one hell of a cliffy!  But have no fear because book 3, Beyond Eighteen, is already available!
Momma's Recommendation
I highly recommend this series to any reader who loves a good romance with a bit of steam and a whole lot of drama!
