When Mia watched Ethan walk out of her life, she did what she did best—she ran—ran from the only person who ever made her feel safe; home.
They work even harder to try and find you.
He was her everything and she let him slip away.
And when they do … they’ll come at you full force, guns blazing.
Hitting rock bottom forced Mia to stop. Now she needed to dig herself out. Figuring out how to do that required help, maybe a plan. She had to face those demons. Not an easy task when she spent her entire life running from them.
Would Ethan still be there for Mia after all was said and done? Or would she find that he had moved on? Or would he still be into her?
This story is a massive roller coaster ride of ups and downs for Mia. It is an extremely emotional read and I had to break out the tissues on more than one occasion. At times my heart broke for Mia because she is so lost. She knows she needs to heal herself but she doesn't know how to begin to do that. Though she has the best of intentions, she makes some really poor choices.
Ryleigh has created a wonderful cast of supporting characters and they all play a vital part in the story. I especially adore Mia's best friend Luke. Their friendship perseveres even though Mia has been purposely keeping distance between them. Whenever she needs him, Luke is always there for her. I love how we have watched their relationship evolve over the course of the two books, from exes/friends with benefits to purely platonic best friends.
In this book we are fortunate to get to read multiple points of view. I always appreciate when authors do this because we get to know what each character is thinking and we don't have to guess. The dual POV's was particularly helpful when Mia was making very questionable choices. We learn exactly what is going on in her mind to cause her to behave so destructively.
I absolutely loved reading this book and in my opinion, it even surpassed book one! I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I'm giving Still Into You five stars for being an amazing follow up!
