Book Review: The Long Game
Book 2 in The Fixer series
AUTHOR: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
PREMISE: Tess agrees to help a high school candidate win Hardwicke's school election. As always, it becomes more complicated then that...
MY REVIEW: The Fixer was one of my favorite, rather underrated, reads from last year. If you haven't picked up the first book, think YA version of Scandal, if Olivia was allowed to make healthy life choices and got better love interests then Jake and Fitz (no, I don't like either. Both are unhealthy options quite frankly). So I was looking forward to this something fierce.
As always, Barnes didn't disappoint. Between this and The Naturals series, she's been knocking it out of the park lately. I don't understand why she isn't more widely known and why Disney or whoever hasn't snatched up these series for a TV show.
This sequel did everything sequels should do. As a bonus, there's a twist I actually didn't even see coming at the end and I can't wait to see how that plays out later on. If you are pining for Scandal during its hiatus period, absolutely pick this series up.
WHO SHOULD READ: Fans of the first book, Scandal fans, Barnes fans, The Naturals series fans
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five damn good sequels
