Summary: As the “oracle of dating,” Kayla is supposed to have all the answers about love and relationships. She’s supposed to have the perfect relationship. But now that Jared is “taking a step back,” Kayla feels like a total fraud. 

So the expert on dating starts taking her own rebound advice—and some from her friends—and stops moping around. Yeah, there are other possibilities out there—including the beyond-cute French foreign exchange student she’s showing around town. But when controversy erupts about the Oracle’s advice, Kayla is sent reeling once again. Will anything work out for her this year? Yet when her friends start seriously needing the Oracle, Kayla begins to focus on what really matters: Viv, Sharese, Amy and Ryan, her trueblue buds. And suddenly, everything starts making sense again…

My Thoughts: I was so excited to receive The Oracle Rebounds and I wasn't disappointed a bit. We are back with Kayla (the dating expert) and her bundle of friends. We start the book with Kayla and Jared stepping back from one another. Or more like him breaking up with her to focus on himself. So what does Kayla do? She turns to her work and the new foreign exchange student staying at her house. She starts dating him and spending lots of time with him. This is just a way to get over Jared she tells herself at first. She must stay intact otherwise the Oracle will also suffer a downfall.

First, lets say, I didn't like the new guy. I need Kayla to be with Jared, he's supposed to be her true love or at least he is for me during this book. The way Jared stares at her from afar still bring butterflies to my stomach hoping they will get back together. The exchange student goes back to his country and once again Kayla has basically been dumped so she has to get over it again. She also spends more time giving advice and starts to guest blog on another site which totally gets the Oracle bad reviews. The other site totally trashes her!

 Also take into consideration, this series is a light fluffy read. They shouldn't be taken too seriously. They need to be savored, laughed with, enjoyed while sipping hot chocolate.

I also love Kayla's friends. They always make me laugh and I enjoy spending time with them. Will Kayla and Jared get back together or are they just over and friends again? Read the book to find out. I also love the articles Kayla writes. This girl knows what she is talking about!

Overall: I really enjoyed reading this one. I still liked the Oracle Of Dating a bit more because it introduced us to the storyline. I love these books, they are cute, Kayla is a very likable girl, and Jared is just awesome. 

Cover: Love It! These covers always have bright colored clothing and they look really stylish.  

What I'd Give It:

Noooo... I can't stand Jasper away from Kayla. The UST between them during the first book was almost too much for me to bear (not kidding!). Oh well, it would seem I have a weak heart. Too many romance novels, I suppose ;)
