Review: The Unperfects by Rachel Van Dyken (The Perfects #2)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
The Unperfects is the follow-up to Rachel Van Dyken's The Perfects. This time around, Quinn gets his shot at finally having a happily-ever-after of his own. Of course, that doesn't necessarily come easily, not when he finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place, except make them identical twin sisters. While Chloe and Sophie may share the same physical attributes, the two couldn't be more different when it comes to who they are on the inside. One is sugar and spice and all things nice, and the other is... not. And poor Quinn? Well, suffice it to say that what he went through with Ambrose and Mary-Belle in the previous book was a fairy tale compared to this sordid saga with Chloe and Sophie. Will he survive with what's left of his very battered heart still intact?
I've been eager to get my hands on Quinn's story since I read The Perfects almost a year ago. Set in Seaside, Oregon--yes, THAT Seaside (longtime readers of Rachel Van Dyken's will be familiar with this particular location)--The Unperfects has Quinn quickly falling for Chloe, but things become oh-so-complicated, no thanks to Chloe's twin, Sophie. So much happened, and I was on the edge of my seat, flipping from one page to the next, waiting to see how everything would be resolved and what would happen to Quinn and Chloe. I was quite entertained from start to finish, with this book feeling like the characters sharing their story with a bit of rambling in places, just like in real life. There are cameos from many an RVD character as well, so if you're a longtime reader of hers, keep an eye out. Four stars.
