Geena is freaking out. She’s been going out with Ben for five months, their relationship is comfortable and perfect, and then Bam! he’s suddenly putting the pressure on to be way more physical. She’s not sure she’s ready.

Enter Mr. Rex Sands, Geena’s delectably hot and brilliant English substitute teacher (he speaks to her soul!), on whom her best friend Amber develops an immediate crush when he stops by the Triple Shot Betty coffee shack. Amber needs Geena’s help talking to him because he is such an intellectual, so Geena finds herself writing love notes, MySpace messages, and texts to Mr. Sands under Amber’s name. And he writes back! Geena is just doing it all for Amber (sort of), so it’s not technically cheating on Ben . . . right?

The second Betty book revolves not on the feminist side, but the love side now. Geena has Ben. Amber is crushing on the hot new English sub, Mr. Sands. Amber coaxs Geena into writing myspace messages to Mr. Sands, so Amber would seem more book smart that she is. Geena seems to get into it a little too much with her relationship status as taken. Aside from that situation, Geena deals with a former person in Ben’s life comes back to live in Sonoma, Sophia, who clearly wants Ben. Hero isn’t mentioned very much in the second book, just to help Geena through some occasions.

Triple Shot Bettys In Love is more of a dip on the love side including fallouts, of course. Triple Shot Bettys In Love needs to be read after Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty. Geena’s feelings of doubts in her own relationship with Ben and Sophia’s with him too. Those feelings are more than relatable, even for a character perspring with courage.
