This time I'm reviewing the second GG book, and also one of my most favorite books in the series, Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy. I bet you can guess one of the reasons why I love this book so much, it's because in this book we meat one my favorite characters of the series EVER, Zachery Goode! I love love LOVE Zach! So in this review there is going to be a lot of gushing and fangirling so there will be spoilers. On with the review!
The book starts with Cammie getting debriefed in Washington DC and she pretty much is told to never have a relationship with Josh again. And after comes back to the Gallagher Academy she finds out that her mom-slash-headmistress and her hot Covert Operations teacher, Joe Solomon, are keeping a big secret from her and Cammie and her best friends, Bex, Liz, and Macey find out that they're not alone, that a school for boy spies are coming for an exchange program.
Let's talk about Zach first. In case you can't tell, I LOVE Zach! He is hot, cocky, awesome, did I mention he's incredibly hot? Because he is. I love how he knows a lot about Cammie and she knows nothing about him and she's like "How do you know that?" and he just points to himself and says, "Spy." I love it when he does that! We find out later on in the books that Zach is a very important character, but I'll talk more about that in another book review.
Now for Cammie. Cammie is kind of heartbroken over her breakup with Josh in the last book, and it probably didn't help when she saw him in town with his new girlfriend (but that's okay because she has Zach now). At first Cammie doesn't like Zach at all but that changes little by little as the book goes on.
I also love Grant and Jonas. Grant is kind of the love interest for Bex and Jonas is for Liz. The sad part for me is that you never see them again in the books. A part of me wants to see them in book six but most likely we wont.
I love how Joe Solomon always pair Cammie with Zach, it's like he wanted them to get together form the beginning.
I really love the part when Zach and Cammie are one their first date and Zach says' "Just so you know, Gallagher Girl, I'm gonna kiss you now" but DeeDee stops him before he can, then at the end when Zach dips Cammie in front of the whole school then says, "I always finished what I start." then I squeal. A lot. Pretty much love every single part that has Zach. It can't be helped. I love the part where Zach and Cammie are studying and he knows that she and her friends bugged his room and he says he's not all bad and not all good, and the part when Zach first called her Gallagher Girl, and the part when Zach come out of nowhere and Cammie hits her head on a fireplace mantle.
There was a lot of good stuff in this book. Time to re-read it, again.
