Second Hand: Tucker Springs Series, Book 2

Second Hand - Heidi Cullinan, Marie Sexton 2,5 starsAlthough I enjoyed some parts,Second Hand didn't grab me mostly because I didn't manage to like Paul. I didn't dislike him but I didn't grow attached to him, so I didn't get invested in his story.The chemistry between El and Paul as well as the chemistry between this story and its readers rely on finding Paul adorkable. He is clueless, self-depreciating and insecure to a point that I wondered, just like Denver : "Is he...you know, mentally challenged?"Even if (or perhaps because) I felt the burnt of humiliation on his behalf, I grew very quickly tired of his little boy personality (the man is 30) that was a little too much in my opinion, grew tired that each decisive step in his life was taken for him by someone else.Apart from that, Second Hand is a pleasantly sweet story that you will enjoy if, like El, you succumb to Paul's cuteness.
