Winter (Dog Days #2)



Eloise “Lou” Whittaker can’t shake the feeling she’s forgetting something.

After surviving the explosion of the Poisonfoot Library, she struggles to find her footing again, and she’s grateful Archer Wyatt is there to make sure she’s all right. But Archer seems to be around an awful lot and Lou has trouble controlling herself when she’s with him. She should be thrilled the most popular guy in school wants to be with her, but still, there’s that nagging feeling…

Cooper Reynolds knows he ought to let Lou go. He was putting her at risk by letting her in the first time, and now that she’s a blank slate he should just let her go on blissfully unaware of his curse. But she’s given him a taste of something dangerous… hope.

Can Cooper and an unlikely ally help Lou break free from the spell she’s under?

And can they do it before a new force threatens to destroy the whole town? (Summary and cover courtesy of

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of YA Bound Blog Tour.


I found this one moved a little slower for me compared to the first.  This is in part because most of the book revolves around Lou trying to regain the memories that the reader is already aware of from the first book, which can’t help being repetitive.  That being said, Dean does a very good job still keeping your attention throughout the story.

I am definitely eager to see the next installment of the series now that it seems all the characters are clear on where everyone stands.  I’m not sure how things are going to work out, but I’m still rooting for Lou & Cooper.

Rating: 4 stars!
