    1. As much as I enjoyed book 1 of this series, I detested book 2 just as much. WARNING: My review contains serious spoilers, but I strongly feel that potential buyers/readers should have the info on what I feel would be hard limits for a lot of them, so you've been warned.Sam has been with his boyfriend from book 1 for the last year and, although separated since the end of the summer due to a family move, Sam 'seems' to care about his boyfriend a lot. And his boyfriend worships the ground that he w [...]

    2. Dammit Perie. So, did I like the first book better? Well, yes and no. I loved it because it told me what I wanted to hear, but does that necessarily make it better? No. Sam has matured, and the style of writing reflects that. It’s tighter and represents the growth in the characters well. It doesn’t completely let go of young Sam, but I can see adult Sam clearly in his reflections. When I finished Turning 17, my first reaction was the overwhelming urge to breakup with Perie Wolford. Seriously [...]

    3. I really hope he doesn't cheat, we all know who the hot friend is and how he destroyed any chances of a relationship I still haven't quite forgiven him. MC show restrained, you have a great guy that stuck with you even after you hurt him several times.Wondering about the distanceRead 4 Aug 2014 May Contain SpoilersI really disliked this story, Sam is almost entirely a different character than the previous novel. He literally hurts everyone around him. He ignores his parents, lies to his best fri [...]

    5. Poor Sam. And poor me. I was reading along, loving every minute of Perie Wolford's Turning 17 and suddenly it was over! And I wanted more. This is the sequel to Turning 16 in which Sam, you guessed it, turned 16. That book was very loosely based on the John Hughes films of the 1980s. In Turning 17, Perie paid homage to "Dirty Dancing."Sam has a birthday curse. Whenever someone wishes him a Happy Birthday, something terrible happens to him. While serving on the wait staff at a summer resort less [...]

    6. While I enjoy more erotic scenarios than are generally offered in young adult romances, this book was so well written and featured such delicious sexual tension that I found the read very satisfying on all levels.One of the more noteworthy qualities of this book, which is a sequel, is that it was a complete departure from the first book. Rather than following the same formula as the first, the sequel depicted characters that have grown and changed, were progressing from school to work, were stru [...]

    7. I wanted to give it a 4-star only, as the pages were getting shorter (I hope this does not mean that Turning 18 would be just 70 pages??!!). However, that aside, this was a fun book to read. Seriously, I could not remember much of Sam and Mitch or Sam and Jake. It was somehow bad to just ditch Mitch in this book by assuming that he went away How easy / cheap way to write a character out of the picture, with no apparent, concrete reason. Still, this book packed good punches and it was an amazing [...]

    9. Sam is turning 17 in this story and he still hates his birthday. He has an amazing boyfriend and some really good friend, and of course he’s trying to make sure no one mentions the dreaded Birthday word. Of course, my favorite character was always Mitch and he’s sort of…absent here. They have a long distance relationship that Sam doesn’t seem all that invested in making work. I know, I know, he’s only 17 but so much was invested through the first book! Meeting Eric, a dining hall worke [...]

    10. The problems I had with the book outweighed the positives for me. Mitch was missing from this story and he was my favorite thing from the first book. I really could not stand Sam in this one even more than in the previous one. Melissa, Keenan, and Mitch deserve a better person in their lives.They were my favorite people in the first book and still were my favorites in this one. Unfortunately Sam and Jake got the most time in the book. I did enjoy some of the references that were made in this boo [...]

    11. More fun and dramaSam sure knows how to have an adventurous birthday week. Once again the drama finds him. Whether it is in a closet, a boat house or a hill top, Sam has all the boys chasing after him. Meanwhile, Mitch is off at Film school. 3.5 for a proper dance-off.

    12. The first book in this series was so good, but this oneI just wanted to strangle the main character after every stupid decision? Why would you? How could you?It was so frustrating!! UGH

    13. All the waiting and it was worth it!!! Such a great book, great series! Loved the Dirty Dancing homage. Can't wait for the next installment!!!

    14. I'm sorry but no. The MC is a total dick. I felt so frustrated after this book. It makes cheating seem likes OK. I HATE THIS BOOK.

    15. The only thing I can say is "WTF did I just read?!".The main character has proven himself to be a cheating scum, a shitty friend and a whore.I advise everyone to stop at Book 1, because Book 2 of this series is really not worth reading.

    16. The first story was cute and funny. This one was just annoying. Sam is an ass and a cheater. Not sure if I'll be giving him a second chance or not.

    18. This was a great YA read! I was excited to see that "Turning 16" had a sequel, because the end of the book left me wanting more! The characters were so great and the story was so fun in the first book and "Turning 17" continues right where it's predecessor left off. I find this story to be a bit more complicated than the feel-good pages of "Turning 16," but the book does not lose it's curiosity and excitement. Once again, I find that the gay twist on 1980's John Hughes moves makes this book such [...]

    19. I loved the prequel, Sam Dorsey and His Sixteen Candles, due to its cute romanticism and strong supporting characters. However, from book to book, the protagonist morphs from a selfish person who we thought learned his lesson to a remarkably unlikable character whose "story" is simply a rationalization of his utter distastefulness and egocentrism. I will try reading the third book because I bought the triple edition, but I am not sure that things can turn around. Maybe they will given the stark [...]

    20. I don't know how I feel about this book. It disappointed me but there were parts I enjoyed. It just did not have the same cute grab that the first one did. I adored the Turning 16 but most of Turning 17 made me sad. I understand the MC is only 17 but his selfishness in this book was upsetting. With that said, I am still patiently waiting for Turning 18 in hopes that this series will redeem itself.

    21. I am torn on how to rate this book. On one hand, the mishaps and the Dirty Dancing references surrounding Sam's birthday were great and I loved it. But on the other hand, I hated that Mitch was MIA, having moved to Boston, and that Jake and Eric came between them. I will definitely read the next book, because I enjoy the author's writing style and because I'm holding out hope for a HEA for Sam and Mitch.

    22. Very enjoyable sequel to SAM DORSEY AND HIS SIXTEEN CANDLES. Continuing the life troubles of Sam Dorsey during the summer vacation before starting college. The trials of boyfriend choices and disappointment of best friends. Sometime heart warming, funny and at other times heartbreaking. I am anxious to read book #3.1.

    23. I was happy to read more about Sam, just like a friend. The writing is fluid and fun: a pleasure!Jake and Mitch were there as well. The emotions are real. Once again: a quick nice read.
