Well,<b> Losing Lila </b>offered what Hunting Lila lacked. This fast-paced sequel is definitely not experiencing the second-book-syndrome or whatever is it called. :3 The characters became more admirable, the fights somehow more intense and believable.<br/><br/><b>The plot:</b><br/><br/><i>What to expect?</i><br/><br/>Seriously cute scenes. Hilarious and lovely characters. Predictable betrayal. Shocking twists and revelations. Action-packed adventure. <br/><br/><b>The characters:</b><br/><br/><i>Lila. </i>She became slightly less annoying to me but still... Gaaaah Lila. Worry about your virginity after you get out of trouble! I find her clumsiness rather funny though. Okay.. she is amusing. Her tricks, her lies to get off trouble! <br/><br/><i><blockquote>"I'm madly in love with Alex and while you've been sleeping he kidnapped me and took me to Mexico and we went skinny-dipping. And let me tell you- it was A. LOT. OF. FUN. I'm sure you want to kick his ass, but oh, what a shame, you're in coma." </blockquote></i><br/><i>Alex.</i> Eeeeep. Do you know the feeling when you read a book and there's this guy who doesn't even try but still managed to make you all gushy gushy? Well, that is Alex right there. And he was very honorable. *wink*<br/><br/><i>Jack. </i>I liked this overprotective brother thing going on. It's too adorable. But probably I won't be that glad if I'm in Lila's place. And the secrets about him... woah.<br/><Blockquote><i>"Jack looks like he’s about to go all Incredible Hulk and burst out of his clothes before rampaging through the bar. He jumps off the stool. ‘If any boy ever lays a finger on my sister, I’m going to kill him,’ he says.<br/><br/>Again I stare at him in silence, thinking of all the girls Jack has laid fingers and much more of his anatomy on besides. Poor Lila. If she ever wants to have a shot at a normal life, as in one that doesn’t require a vow of celibacy, she needs to stay in London.” </i></blockquote><br/><i>Suki.</I> You go girl! I really liked her quirky and fun personality. She and Nate are quite a force when they're together. Haha.<br/><br/><b>The ending:</b><br/><br/>Uhhh. What is that? Is there another book after this? It feels kind of open-ended to me. So that is why I'm giving this 4 stars.<br/><br/>Anyway, this was definitely entertaining.<I> Certainly better than the first one but still not without flaws. </i>Recommended with reservations.
