Series or Stand Alone: You and I Book 2

Twenty-one year old Anna Blake has lived her life by one simple rule; never get attached. At least she did, until her life was completely turned upside down by a man that not only consumed her but literally brought her to her knees.

She never dreamed that accepting a job as a dancer at one of the most secretive and exclusive clubs in the country would bring her face to face with the one man she simply could not resist.

Bentley Reed….

Rich, powerful, sexy. Bentley can have any woman he wants. But to him, there is only one. Determined to prove to Anna that he can be the type of man she needs, he sets out to win the ultimate prize; her heart.

But things are not always so black and white. While Bentley struggles against Anna’s resistance, she has her own battles to fight. Because when you are dealing with a man like Bentley Reed, anything can happen….

You and I Together is the second installment in the irresistibly addicting You and I series.


This is exactly what I expected the continuation of Anna and Bentley’s story to be. Anna is such a strong, independent woman that she doesn’t realize what it means to truly be in love with someone. There are a lot of trust issues in this book, not just from her but Bentley as well. This really shows the consequences of what happens when you keep secrets and hide things from the person you love.

I must say that my favorite character in this book is Lo. There is something about her that I absolutely love and I can’t quite put my finger on it. All of the characters are well-developed and are easy to relate to, but I wish we could learn more about Lo at some point.

I feel like I’m a wreck after finishing this book because I could feel the emotions the characters felt as they were feeling them: love, anger, and pain. I definitely got emotionally involved in this series and can’t wait for the third book, You and I Forever, to come out in June.

Rating: 5 stars
