[Review] We Thought We Knew It All By Michelle Lynn

We Thought We Knew It All
By Michelle Lynn
(Invincible #2)
Published: March 31st 2017

Much can happen in ten years. People change. Life occurs; death ensues. Secrets are kept; truth prevails.

A decade has passed since Callie and Jamie exchanged goodbyes. At the time, they didn’t realize it might be their final exchange, and they’d disappear from each other’s lives. But that’s exactly what happened. Now, Callie finds herself at a crossroads. Caught between her current life and the longing for her past, she must decide what is best for her.

Jamie has worked hard to make something of himself — to prove his father wrong. Life as an Army Ranger isn’t easy, but it’s who he is down to his core. When everything starts to crumble, he receives news from home that makes him think about his life. Earlier, he vowed never to set foot in Gulf City again. Now, there's no reason he can’t go home.

Except there is... And her name is California McCoy.

I recieved a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
Back at it again! For those who are familiar with Michelle Lynn’s work, you may have noticed how writing 'stories that are tough to tackle yet will definitely blow you away’ may be her forte. And this sequel did not exempt. It’s not a secret that I love the previous book and boy I’m glad that this sequel did not disappoint.

After the tragedy that happened in the first instalment, this book is all about the aftermath and how the characters choose to go on with their lives. Zooming out ten years after We Thought We Were Invincible, We Thought We Knew It All was the perfect conclusion to this story. It was less cramped in the conflicts department compared to its previous book, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I was worried at first, after finding out that the time gap was way far, but turns out there’s nothing to worry about at all. Our favourite characters had certainly grown after ten years, but the author had managed to effortlessly slip every missing details in perfect timing, making it seem that 10 years was nothing but a blip.

Great characters, great writing style, great plot, what else can I say? I am shocked to find myself not hating any of the characters in the book after I finished reading it, no matter how annoying they can be. While the first book is more towards “either you love it or you DNF’d it,” this sequel is a dessert to all of us who managed to power through all the conflicts and tragedy in the first book. Although, I’m not saying that this book is lacking it’s own share of conflicts, because trust me, it’s there.

We Thought We Knew It All is about how Callie and Jamie were forced to grow up and somehow break apart in the process and how they found each other back at the end of the day. Overall? 5 perfect stars. You need to begin with the first book before you can pick up this one, so if you haven’t read it yet, I am strongly recommending you this series.
