Jamie and Max are back. Now married to each other, they're still the same guys they used to be: emotional, insecure, playful Jamie and quiet, strong, protective Max. There are some small issues in their relationship—such as how incredibly vulnerable Jamie is to any critical words from Max—and they do occasionally argue. But overall, things are going well.
Or at least, Max thinks they are. Until Jamie disappears without a word.
Certain the love of his life is dead, Max suffers the worst depression of his life, tormented by thoughts of Jamie's suffering. And then Jamie reappears, uninjured and apparently perfectly whole. Can Max ever forgive him, even enough to find out why he disappeared, or is their relationship as dead as he thought Jamie was?

Fully Unexpected! This is a definite sequel and the series should be read in order. You should also read book one, YOU WERE ALWAYS THE ONE prior to this review, as it contains spoilers for the first story. The suspense and emotional drama in Hollis' latest story is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat! The storyline is fast paced, full of complex twist and turns, evil exes and friends in surprising places . Hang on to your hats boys and girls, because this is one sequel that will blow you away! I must confess that I struggled a little bit with how I felt about this one at first. I fell in love with Jamie and Max during the first book, and I guess I was hoping that the guys would have grown a little bit more emotionally, considering the hurdles they overcame in order to be together. It made me a little bit sad to see that they were still dealing with the insecurities and communication issues that almost derailed their relationship in the beginning. The unexpected nature of And You Still Are adds a whole new layer of challenges for this dynamic couple to face. I ended up thoroughly enjoying the experience, and am looking forward to seeing where the next book takes them! A copy of And You Still Are was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
