What is Love?
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. When I first saw the blurb of this book in Amazon it seemed to me very attractive, and I had a feeling that I would love it. So, now, I'm in the pleasant position to state that I didn't do wrong and I'm ready to read more by this new author in the future. She did a great first job. The story begins at a rehearsal dinner, when two total strangers have to be paired up for their nearest's upcoming wedding ceremony. They meet, they have an awkward fisrt conversation and despite her pranking him, they hit it off and finally have a great time at the wedding day.
He leaves, she stays behind, although, they keep in touch and just like that, they start a beautiful relationship through the telephone. A connection seemed to be found between them and after a while Jake -who is a famous singer on tour across the Europe- asks from Casey to visit him in Europe for a weekend. The weekend becomes a summer and a love story takes shape smoothly and beautifully. Well, is that enough when one of them has a hurtful past and many internal fights? This is a journey with great dialogues, witty banters, internal back and forths, and main characters who are adorable and compelling.
Many emotions came along with the development of the book. I laughed, felt angry and stressed but by the time I finished the book I was happy and satisfied. What else can I say? When I purchase the book I was wondering about the meaning of the title, now I know that it is brilliant Yeah, you read my title right. Jake and Casey romanced their ways out of darkness. First of all, what happened to Jake as a preteen was horrible. I sobbed like a baby. I knew it would be horrific even before he told Casey. I was expecting an epic break up, and terrible twist, but this author is clever. What we have is a cerebral cry for help, love and understanding from the love of his life by Jake.
It was painful, but these two walked the walk, after the 'talk'. They just have absolute love in each other. Their romance is also believable because Jake is down to earth, humble. They connected, period, end of story. There was no cheating, no drugs, no alcohol induced sex etc. It is about love, and family. The author shows that rock star books don't have to be dirty, in your face infidelity, groupies, fake pregnancies etc.
It can be decent and clean like this one. I love Jake and Caseys' family. They were very supportive. There might be groupies and women throwing themselves at Jake, but he only sees Casey. Our heroine is a honest, personable young woman. I love the fact that she was not pseudo freaking out about spending Jake's money. Oh yeah, our girl took money offered to get an apartment near Jake, clothing, etc. There was no stupid drag out war about moving to the same city. Finally, Jake is on the way to healing, both physically and emotionally.
The two epilogues are fabulous. The last one gave me goosebumps. This is a book that will stay with me forever. That I am sure of. I will also read it again. Phew, I can't remember when I have written a lengthy review like this one. So hard to believe this was a first time author. I couldn't put the book down. I fell in love with both characters and their love story. Very rare that I didn't have to read about fights and breakups and angst. Usually, I pick up books which are recommended by friends, but Cake was one I picked up on a whim simply because I wanted to listen to the audiobook narrators, Joe Arden and Andi Arndt, who are very talented together.
This book surprised me in many ways. It's not a typical rock star romance nor is it a typical new adult romance. This book has a young adult feel in a new adult romance world. There is excellent dialogue, an intriguing dual POV, a slow burn romance and one terrifying elephant in the room which I knew was going to be acknowledged by the end of the book. This book grabbed me from start to finish. Jake is a talented rock star who meets Casey unexpectedly at his brother's wedding. They are polar opposites of each other but discover an intense connection.
Casey is attracted to Jake's down-to-earth personality and loner status and Jake is attracted to Casey's sense of humor. The two embark on a long distance romance in which their world's collide, but Jake has a past in which he survived a horrific crime which could tear him and Casey apart. I have to say the biggest draw in this book was the dialogue as I witnessed the development of Jake and Casey's relationship.
The intense discussions and the way they shared their pasts gave the book a young adult feel, but the couple are adults and embark on a new relationship at a time where change is prevalent in their lives. It makes for a good combination. The angst isn't due to the couple themselves but by their circumstances. There isn't a cheating, drug addicted rock star story here. These are two grounded people experiencing their first adult love.
I like how the author built up the slow burn of Jake and Casey's relationship and the slow reveal of Jake's kidnapping. It felt like that would be how someone's horrific past experience would creep up on them in a relationship when they got close to someone. I highly recommend both the book and audiobook of Cake. It was all very maddening!!!!!!!! Thank goodness there is a sequel because Dear Peter Except the author said there will be more about that other Model UN guy, John, and we will see his letter so thus probably another love triangle!
And Josh can just be friends with everyone. I don't think he should get back with Margot after kissing her sister. I absolutely loved when Josh and Peter were arguing about who would get their cookies and Peter said that if Lara Jean made Josh's white chocolate cranberry ones and not his fruitcake ones then it was over.

It's not as lighthearted or optimistic as the first installment, but it focuses on heartbreak and incompatible relationships.

You still have those old feelings for them; you can't ever completely shake them loose of you; you will always have tenderness in your heart for them. Every time I read a new novel by Han, I am always assaulted by these strong emotions. In a way it reminds me of our quintessential home where I "There's a Korean word my grandma taught me. In a way it reminds me of our quintessential home where I grew up. It simply hits me at the right spots. It makes me reminisce certain childhood memories. That is pure talent. I get nostalgic and pensive.
I Still Love You opens right after where the first book left it off. Lara Jean on at the verge of making it up to Peter. A reader could expect, kissing, scandal, intense jealousy, family love, and more kissing. It is fast paced and very easy to get into the flow of the plot. Though at times, I find myself frustrated, but obviously I got over that nasty feeling. They are integral part of the story just as much as the protagonist. We have a Korean American main character s. Lara Jean and the Song sisters heritage are essential to the story. Han explores some of the common Korean culture.
The romance is cute just as I was expecting. Highlight of the book: I love books that stays very true. I Still Love You is a satisfying conclusion. You can listen to my To P. I Still Loved You playlist in 8tracks.

I am so pissed. This book is just awful. Behold, the summary in bullet form! But for once, he did. Do you see where I'm coming from?! I don't know why I did that. I just made myself even more irritated than I already am. Everyone's either super nice or super smart or super arrogant or super bitchy. And they're all immature, my goodness! You just couldn't find yourself relating to any of them. Also, I don't think I will ever understand Jenny Han's thing with love triangles.
Because this set up will never work for me and I don't see how it does with everyone else! Anyway, to all girls and boys, my point is this: Do not let your partner treat you like some garbage. If you do otherwise, don't come crying to your Mama. Never settle for less. Everyone deserves to be someone else's 1. I Still Love You: Alternate Ending Lara Jean and Peter broke up because it just isn't working anymore.
Peter apologizes for whatever he's done to hurt Lara Jean—he didn't mean any of it. Peter thought he has moved on from Gen, but he thought wrong. Lara Jean is broken, but she's learned so much from this experience and realized she's missing out on other things. She gets on with her life and focused on more important matters like college and being Kitty's big sister. But someday, she's willing to open up her heart again. John waits from the distance.

Thank you so much for this! Sep 04, Fuka-chan I love the book but i also looooove your review! I agreed whole heartedly! Why LJ chooses Peter everytime he fucked up? Like i wouldnt be with him aft I love the book but i also looooove your review! Like i wouldnt be with him after that shit.
But anyway still gonna read the third book. Imma sucker for these type of book. Aug 24, Maria rated it really liked it. To die out, to wither. This book starts off strong with a very interesting plot that was also used in the movie. The sex tape pool thing. It was brushed off lightly in the movie, but it showed many repercussion 3. It was brushed off lightly in the movie, but it showed many repercussions in the book.
And I don't think it was handled well. The book pretends to be a feminist book but then Lara Jean is scared of being called "a slut" by her school. And also, we leave the whole situation to the boy A. Peter to handle it. Because he's the boy and he can do anything to protect his girl. Anyway, let's get to the plot. I feel like this trilogy could easily be a duology. This book's pace was slow, unlike its predecessor. It was too cozy and domestic and relationshippy without anything important happening for many pages.
We also got the Josh factor erased from this book, so it was all Peter and Lara Jean. The Belleview scenes killed me. Not the good killing. I honestly wanted to rip my eyes out. Or skip the pages. But I'm too much of a perfectionist to do that. Just spare me the details.
The Genevieve drama was more apparent in this book. Her little schemes saved the book. Peter pissed me off so much in this book. I honestly wanted to scream. We got an explanation at the end of what Gen was going through but come on man? Explain to your girlfriend the dits! Everything could be resolved if they just talked to each other, but no no. Everything almost got to shit for nothing. And then we get John. His scenes with Lara Jean were adorable. I almost shipped it. I was honestly like "Come on Lara Jean really?
How many more boys am I supposed to ship with you? You're confusing my mind". We get him as a valuable option for her, but then the same happened as with Josh. I was so surprised she got with Peter in the end. It's like she kisses John and she feels things and then 10 pages later she's with Peter again and she's in love with him again. The ending of this book was too quick for me. I savored the tag thingy game in this book.
And Lara Jean won at the end. With a bad way, but she did. I love it when people who lose at games, and life basically, win at the end. To sum it all up, this review is short for my standards. I don't have much to say. This book didn't have much of a plot to go into. And as I have said before, I read all these books before writing the reviews. My head is so confused right now. I don't remember what happened and in which book it happened in. I'll say again, these books are so easy to read. But they are for 15 year old Maria. And I took an oath to myself to not judge these kinds of books.
If I judged this book as I would want to, I would surpass the Goodreads limit of characters. And till the next one View all 6 comments. Dec 28, Emma Giordano rated it really liked it Shelves: Unfortunately, I struggle a bit with this sequel this is typical of me but overall, I enjoyed my time re-entering this story.
For a large part of this book, I was afraid I had fallen out of touch with this story. I read book one when I was 18 and finally decided to continue 3 years later. Many of the tropes I no longer enjoy and critiques I used to skip over due to lack of reading experience unfortunately dragged down the story and I essentially felt as if I had gotten "too old" to e 3. Many of the tropes I no longer enjoy and critiques I used to skip over due to lack of reading experience unfortunately dragged down the story and I essentially felt as if I had gotten "too old" to enjoy this story in the same way.
Luckily, the majority of my issues were resolved by the ending and I was able to end this book feeling more connected to the story. My favorite thing about this story is the family dynamic.
A close-knit family of sisters and dedicated, loving father is not always common in young adult stories that are often full of absent families. They are supportive, caring, dependable, love each other deeply. They do bicker like normal sisters, but their relationship is so inspiring and desirable. Their father is also kind, open-minded, and extremely supportive.
The Song-Covey family is absolutely one of my favorite sibling-parent relationships in all of literature. Unfortunately, my biggest issue with the novel was the attitude of the main love interest. The only way to describe my feelings throughout this book is "uncomfortable" - I was very uncomfortable with Peter's choices and reactions to issues within this sequel. I understand that a lot of the jealousy, deception by omission, and prioritizing the "wrong" people are things that do happen in real life, especially for teens in relationships, but I can't possibly write this review without expressing how much I disagreed with it.
I'm pleased that attempts at resolutions are made in the end, but I do feel some points were skipped over and not fully addressed for the sake of completing the novel more quickly. Another issue I had with this book was the introduction of a second love triangle. I know book one was basically built upon this trope hence, why I feared I had grown out of my capacity to enjoy book two but it felt so unnecessary. The conflict between Lara Jean and Peter was individually complex enough to exist without developing another potential love interest. It felt as if Peter was being villainized due to the introduction of this character, and this character was glorified to force readers to prefer them over Peter.
I really dislike feeling as if the author is forcing me to feel a certain way or "pick a certain ship" so this aspect really rubbed me the wrong way. Again, I do feel it was resolved in the end, better than my first critique, so I'm not bothered any further. Despite my critiques, I still really enjoyed re-entering this story.
A lot of times, the final judge of my enjoyment of a book is how motivated I am to find out what happens in the end and my desire to keep reading. For the first time ever, I actually had to stop listening to the audiobook because I needed to know what happened albeit, mostly out of frustration. I switched to the physical book and stayed up well past my bed time to complete the story.

What a pointless book. Ok I'm being extra harsh here but this, folks, is what happens when an author stretches a story for no reason. This should have been a standalone.

Watch her constantly get jealous and grow into a Wait that can't be right? Then watch her struggle through teenage problems, like going to high school and having people, dare I say, judge her. Next you'll get to see her like never before as she In this book you'll be on the edge of your seat, hoping that maybe the seat will break, because even that is more eventful than what happens in this novel. So read and enjoy a teenage girl being a pre-teen as she dates a guy. Oh and maybe there's a new guy too, but why wouldn't there be, because what do twelve year olds love more than love triangles?!

There was a game thrown in there, which was the only thing that saved this. Just the fact that there's a next book is surprising, since the plot is lost on me.
This one was barely able to pass off, but another? When I speak about the characters and novel being about middle school, I'm not kidding. The game they payed here, I used it as a game for the children I was babysitting. They weren't even in middle school, they were third graders Remember this quote from my first review? It's back again, but this time, it escaped!: There were some awkward talks about feminism. I loved that it was brought up, it just didn't flow well.
It was like something you see done by awful actors in class for educational purposes. Maybe it was the way the topic was brought up, but it didn't feel natural, well the one regarding feminism at least. Still, since the target audience for this series is younger, I'm very glad we had many feminists in this novel. Barely any plot, just relationship drama. If you liked the first one, you might like this one a little less.

This may be spoilerish for the first book! I hated it so much, I DNFd it. Mhm, maybe I should try it again. And what can I say? It was not as good as the first one, but still entertaining and nice. And the trouble has a name - the history with Genevieve. And she succeeds in some way. And his name is John Ambrose McClaren and he writes her letters and smiles at her and dresses up for her.
But will Lara Jean ever stop loving Peter? Lara Jean is super confused and likes two boys at once? Peter is sweet but also a big asshole. John Ambrose is a wonderful cinnamon roll. And Kitty and her dad are the freakin best. We saw enough of them in the first book. Because I never saw a different option then my handsome baby. But then John Ambrose McClaren appeared out of nowhere. And first I was suspicious: But Jenny Han loves to torture us, so she makes him so handsome, wonderful and caring that you fall in love with him.
Hell Yeah, of course the feelings if it involves Peter Kavinsky. No one should ever think that there is only one person for them in their lifetime. Her stories are fluffy, sweet but sometimes also sad, confusing and heartbreaking. So, the new year started good for you. A lot of four and fives and now a DNF.
How do you feel about that? Well, I was really sad about that, because I loved the first book. It was so sweet and fluffy.
Just really really cute.
