From the Publisher:
When love has you going to the extreme to rectify a misunderstanding.
Craig and his sister Lana have officially been recruited for season two of Latitude on the famous LGBTQ network. The only problem is that Lana is now going to be teaming up with her new boyfriend, former camera man Angel. So why are they contacting him to come on the show this season with no teammate? And after what happened last season, he feels a trap coming.
Luke Nolan knows that this probably isn’t the way to reunite with Craig. In fact, it’s probably a terrible mistake considering five years ago his social circle in high school had given both Lana and Craig, hell. However, after seeing him on the show last season, he knows that he hasn’t gotten over Craig. He will do anything to get him back, even go to the extreme. But will Craig listen long enough to rectify the misunderstanding that has been haunting Luke these past five years?
Hmm… what can I say about Latitude Extreme? It is the second book in the Latitude series from Stephanie Hecht and Jackie Nacht. It follows 3 of the minor characters from book 1 as well as a newcomer, Luke, as they once again take on an “Amazing Race” type adventure. This one, of course, being geared to the LGBTQ community. The story itself was an okay read, but I had a number of issues with it. First there were a lot of inconsistencies in the story line. For instance the race is supposed to be 6 weeks long, but only lasts maybe a week (I had the same issue with the first book in the series). Nothing is so bad that it renders the book unreadable or anything, just a few annoyances I guess.
As for the love story itself, I just wasn’t feeling it at.all. Enemies to lovers stories, such as this one need more angst leading up to the big fall in love seen. I wanted more back story. I wanted to feel their hatred, their desperation, and finally their love… but I never felt any of it.
It is a quick read, and if you need a feel good book with a happy ending, this is a good choice. Also, though this is #2 in the series, it doesn’t really depend on book 1 (Latitude 45). Though, you do get more background if you start with book 1.
I would like to thank Extasy Books and NetGalley for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
