4 out of 5 stars
The second book in Sharryn Dotson’s A Series of Choices picks up right where Closure or Ammo left off but is told through the eyes of Leo and Travis, which is an alteration that gives the reader the opportunity to see a different perspective of the events that transpired in the first book. Through Leo, we learn that Lana was not as reliable of a narrator as it appeared, and through Travis we see a new side of his relationship with Val. Both of these men still struggle with their personal relationships and family life, but they also face much more dangerous situations due to their involvement with deadly gang members and double agents.
While it has improved greatly from the first book, the writing in this novel can still feel a bit awkward and forced at times. However, the exciting events of the story soon distract from this and kept me turning the pages until the very end. I enjoyed getting to know the male characters and their back stories more, but I wish that the female characters had a bit more involvement; especially Lana who seems to have just dropped of the face of the Earth after she gets shoved into a mental hospital. I felt more involved in the story than I expected, and I have to admit the characters are beginning to grow on me. I loved the anticipation and intensity of the story line and I look forward to reading the next installment to see what shocking twists come next.
