More like *3.5 STARS* rounded up.
I didn't like this one quite as much as I liked the first one. There was so much angst and misunderstanding in this one, I didn't really feel like I got to fall in love with these two as a couple.
And for so much of the book, Dax was acting like a couple tool, and Remi was being TSTL. So, I just didn't even know if I wanted them together.
Then, the end redeemed the whole thing for me. The last 25% of the book made up for the struggle I had with the first 75.
I had this one on kindle unlimited and did whispersync. I didn't like the way the male narrator did the female voices. I thought that the female narrator did all the voices very well and wished that she had just narrated the whole book without it switching back and forth. The male narrator in the first book did a much better job.
