Filthy Foreign Exchange 2 by SE Hall and ANgela Graham
Title: Filthy Foreign Exchange 2 Author: S.E. Hall & Angela Graham Genre: New Adult Release Date: June 14
The conclusion of Echo and Kingston’s story as they backpack through Europe!
When Echo Kelly is invited on a backpacking trip throughout the UK, she jumps at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, refusing to let one fleeting past exchange stop her.
At least, that’s what she’s convinced herself of, until the moment she sees him again. It’s not the one-time “run-in” she was expecting, and therefore prepared to handle.
Instead, it’s an announcement she never saw coming…he’s the tour guide.
She’s got no backup plan for that.
Kingston knew what it meant the moment Echo accepted the offer. And when he lays eyes on her, standing in his childhood home, her fate is sealed forever. There’s not a damn thing that will stop him from finally claiming what’s always been his.
Not everyone gets a second chance—and Kingston Hawthorne sure as hell isn’t going to let his slip away.
“And now, we play my way. Kingston,” she enunciates. “How do you know him?”
I flop down on the bed and kick off my shoes. “Long, boring story.”
“Got an hour, so spill.” She sits across from me, in the room’s lone chair. “That’s part of the roommate agreement, no secrets when it comes to guys.”
Did she just reference The Big Bang Theory? Loving her!
I have been dying to get my hands on this book since I finished FFE and wanted to cry form the heartbreaking cliff I was left dangling from. FFE2 was definitely worth the wait.
In this story Echo is determined to get past the heartache left behind by Kingston. so when she is invited to back pack across Europe, she jumps at the chance. However, this trip may not be the heartmending time she needs as she discovers the her tour guide is the super sexy Kingston himself.
I loved the tension and heat between these two characters and found myself in knots, yelling at my kindle for Echo to " please get you head out of your ass!"
I love both of these authors separately and together they can heat up the pages of your kindle furnace! Echo and Kingstons story will have you awake at 2am, telling yourself "just one more chapter"
I could not put it down! I really hope we get to see a little more of there story. Perhaps we can catch a glimpse of them in a story about Nat and Sebastian???? I can only hope!
I couldn't wait to read this book after being left stunned at the end of the first book. FFE2 kicks off
right where the first book finished, with Echo travelling to the UK after being offered the chance.
She needs to mend her broken heart and gain some perspective on life, but as they say all good
plans go to waste! Just when she thinks she has managed to avoid him Kingston spears as the
groups tour guide. The books follows them through Europe and through the the process of
Kingston showing Echo who he really is.
This is such a good book but you do need to have read Filthy Foreign Exchange before you delve
into this one! I hope that this is the beginning of a long running series as I NEED to know what's
happening with Seb!!
If you like your books to have angst, smouldering chemistry and a couple who you love this book is
SE Hall and Angela Graham are at it again with book 2 of Filthy Foreign Exchange. In this book, Hall & Graham continue to work their magic with Kingston and Echo as they journey across Europe together on a trip of a lifetime. Echo has grown, matured, seeing the world with new eyes after having been left behind by Kingston. Kingston's has been forever changed by small town girl Echo Kelly and he's spent the last year growing into the man he believes is worthy of her love. Together they ride the temptations of love, trust, and spreading their wings. Hall and Graham have done another spectacular job of writing characters you can't help but fall in love with. Their conclusion to Echo and Kingston's journey is everything the reader could possibly want and then some. Not only did they give you another wonderful romance but they also flirt with another temptation between Echo's brother Sebastian and her humorously, quick witted travel companion and roomie Natalie. Once again Hall and Graham have left me begging for another story! I can only hope that we hear more from Nat and Sebastian.
I have to say that this one is just wow… the whole culmination of Echo and Kingston’s relationship. I love the banter and the side characters! Was beyond enjoyable watching them go through the motions of working their way to being together finally. And when they finally where, it was explosive. Being thrown together in a trip around Europe, makes them face their feelings and find the peace they needed with each other.
After the way the first novel ended, this one picks up essentially right after. You do get to learn more about Echo’s brother, Sebastian again which I am so so hoping we get more of him. I love how her brother encourages her to face her feelings with Kingston. I love how adorable Kingston was throughout this one. He wanted to prove to Echo that he wasn’t what all the rumors are saying. My heart broke when something tragic happens to Kingston but I loved how Echo stood beside him. I love how Echo got her backbone and stood up for herself too.
Overall, I fell in love with Echo and Kingston again with this story. I loved seeing them together and how happy they made each other feel. The flow was perfect with just the right amount of angst but also passion. Graham and Hall create a beautiful story together and I do hope there will be more from them together.
