    Interested, just not fully invested

    It took some time for Oversight to really sink its psy-claws into me. I liked plenty about the second book in The Community trilogy, and in fact liked some aspects more than the first book. However, it wasn't until a major reveal from one of the characters that I became engrossed in Holden and Six's story. Mr Hassell's ability to expand and/or redeem characters from one book to the next continues to awe me. Although Insight gave indications that there was more to Holden than the privileged, arrogant club owner that expects everyone to fawn over him, I was still happy to see how much more there was to his character. Not only was he quickly redeemed in my eyes, but he continued to grow over the course of the novel. Six was immediately intriguing. I loved the mysterious air that surrounded him and his progression as he discovered more of himself and built a relationship with Holden was great. While I thought the characters had a bit more depth in the second book and found Six and Holden's connection more intense than that of Trent and Nate, I was missing something and it took some time to pinpoint what. The action scenes in Oversight were very good, conveying the harried emotions of the characters and maintaining a brisk pace. However, I wasn't on the edge of my seat reading furiously like I did with Insight. I was definitely surprised by many reveals and that was fantastic, but I missed the creeping mysterious quality that steadily built into a thrilling suspense. As much as I enjoyed how the conflicts and climax played out, I was also a little underwhelmed. In the end, Oversight waffled between 4 and 4.5 stars for me. The writing, dialogue, and romance were all very good. The characters had depth and vulnerabilities that made them complex and interesting, and I think fans of Mr Hassell won't be disappointed. As in Insight, the second book ends with plenty of unanswered questions and left me wondering just what Sightlines has in store for readers. Because these aren't standalones, perhaps a refresher read leading up to the next release will give me the full, suspense-building story arc I was craving in this installment.

    Oversight is the second book in The Community series, and you do have to read book one to fully understand what is going on as events that happened in Insight are constantly referenced. The story this time focuses on Holden. He is the owner/manager of Evolution, the LGBT club that featured in book one. The fall out from those events are still going on, but Holden is doing his best with what he has. His father turns up (and caring and emotional are NOT words I would use to describe him!) and basically gives Holden to a babysitter. Six is someone Holden remembers from his youth, but it is hard to equate the two as Six has changed - or been changed - so much. Once again, the story is full of mystery and suspense. I think I know who one of the mystery characters is, and now I just need to wait to see if I am correct! We also reacquainted ourselves with Trent and Nate, who continue to be favourites of mine. This story is excellently written, with major character development, especially in Holden. I didn't much like him in the first book, but saw a different side to him in this one. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, so I would not hesitate to recommend this book. One difference to book one though is no epilogue for our main characters Instead, it ends with things very much in the air, which will definitely leave you wanting more! * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
