Title: Look Twice (Blaze of Glory Book #2)
Author: M. Garzon
Release: 12 Nov 2012
From the Author:
Blood is thicker than water.
I didn’t understand that expression when I was a kid. I only knew that I was closer to my brother Seth than to anyone else in the world. He was the calm to my storm, the light to my dark. We were tied to the rest of our complicated family by bonds beyond blood—love, loyalty, convenience—but as it turns out, the pull of blood is strong. Maybe even strong enough to tear me away from the person with whom I shared my very first breath.
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book. I absolutely fell in love with Blaze of Glory by M. Garzon the first time I read it, so of course I jumped at the change to review Look Twice, the latest installment in Tea’s story. Read on for my review of Look Twice:
Please note that this review may contain some spoilers for Blaze of Glory (if you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?).
Look Twice by M. Garzon starts right where Blaze of Glory leaves off. Jaden and Tea must deal with the aftermath of their inadvertent outing of their relationship to their disapproving family. Look Twice, however, focuses less on the relationship between Jaden and Tea and more on the family dynamics and consequences surrounding not only the relationship but also growing into a mature adult. Tea is now 18, legal, and in love for the first time. She must deal with not only the disapproval of her family, but also outside forces that want put a strain on herself, her relationship, and her family ties. We get to watch Tea mature both in her relationship with Jaden as well as those with her brother and step-father. We get to watch as she learns the power of jealousy, loyalty, duty, family, and love.
No Sophomore slump for Ms. Garzon. Look Twice is a sweet story that is mostly free of the controversy and angst that Blaze had, but it does have it’s own heart wrenching moments. It progresses the universe well and leaves the reader wanting more. I am once again eagerly awaiting the next offering from Garzon. She is currently hard at work on Renaissance Man – Book 3 in the Blaze of Glory series. I, for one, can not wait.
I would like to thank M. Garzon for providing me an ARC of Look Twice in exchange for my honest review.
