Split Second (Pivot Point #2) by Kasie West


Split Second (Pivot Point, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars


Split Second (Pivot Point, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Addison doesn’t remember the search she did in the first book, which means she doesn’t remember Trevor either.
Is there a way for her memories to be retrieved though? And what will it cost Laila to find out?


This was an okay sequel, but I found the second half to be a bit boring.

Addie and Laila were both okay characters, although I was a bit surprised by the alternating points of view. I found it a bit odd the way Laila didn’t give the letter that Addie had written to herself to her when she was supposed to, although Laila did then show some merit by trying so hard to work out how to restore memories.
I did feel quite sorry for Addie though with regards to Trevor, as it seemed a bit unfair the way she couldn’t remember that she loved him.

The storyline in this was okay, but I started to lose interest at the half-way mark. I’m not sure why this was exactly, but I just got bored, and it took me quite a while to wade my way through the second half then. There were a couple of surprises, but again, after the half-way mark they weren’t very interesting, and I was concerned about the way Addie was trusting the things that a confused old man was telling her, who seemed to be losing the plot a little.
There was some romance, but other than wanting Addie and Trevor to get back together, I wasn’t all that interested.
The ending was okay, but I had really lost interest by that point.
Overall; first half was alright, second half was pretty dull,
6.5 out of 10.
