Review: Riled Up by Anie Michaels (With a Kiss #2)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

If Riley Smith thought her life was good before, it's changed in more ways than one ever since she met and fell in love with Camden Rogers. It all started with a Kiss Cam during halftime at a basketball game they were sitting side by side at and now, Riley's sporting the ring that Cam gave her after he surprised her with a very public engagement. She should be on cloud nine, but old insecurities are creeping back into her psyche, making her question her new life and how deserving she is of everything. She loves Cam and she knows Cam loves her, but love doesn't solve all of life's problems, and when it comes to the doubts that linger in Riley's head, love could prove to be not quite enough to overcome them all. Cam would love nothing more than to swoop in and be the hero that saves the day, but he knows that this time around, Riley is going to have to be her own hero and hopefully, she'll come to believe that the happily-ever-after they're both headed towards is one she truly deserves.

Riled Up is the sequel to Kiss Cam, with both books belonging to the With a Kiss series written by Anie Michaels. The first book felt like it would have sufficed on its own, but this second one works well in showing what happens after that happy ending and how one's personal issues and insecurities can lead to complications. Reading Kiss Cam prior to reading Riled Up is a must because they feature the same couple and you will have a better appreciation for their love story if you're part of their journey from the moment that Kiss Cam zeroes in on them. Cam is his usual perfect self here in book two. The man needs to be bottled up and I'm pretty sure the demand would be high. Riley's not handling all the changes in her life as well as she would have hoped, and that angst that was missing in the series starter is ever present here in the follow-up. Again, Anie Michaels has given readers a satisfying sweet and sexy romance that hits the right spots and leaves us hopeful for more. Four stars for Riled Up. ♥
