It doesn’t seem like the Carlyle triplets Avery, Owen and Baby have only been in Manhattan for only a week. They haven’t even begun to make their mark despite the party that managed to get the cops called and Avery taken to the police station. But not everything is smooth sailing for the triplets, Baby’s trying to get back in the good books at Constance Billard, Avery’s already got one frenemy in Jack, and Owen’s trying to get over Kelsey, who just happens to be the ex-girlfriend of one of his good friends from the swim team. What will happen if Rhys finds out that Owen’s the real reason Kelsey broke up with him?

The Carlyles are a great addition to the Gossip Girl series. I have to say I’m partial to Owen and Baby. Jack’s the perfect bad girl, out to oust Avery from her inner circle of friends but with Avery knowing the truth about her financial situation, Jack is practically being blackmailed till the truth comes out and then Jack is hopeful it’ll send Avery out of Constance Billard, out of Manhattan and straight out of New York. I loved Owen having to struggle with the fact he’s interested in Kelsey, but knowing Rhys is still into her as well. The swim team scenes with Owen and Rhys are actually some of my favorite in the book.

Fans of the Gossip Girl series won’t go wrong picking this one up.

Look for the Gossip Girl: The Carlyles #3 ‘Take a Chance on Me’ out in May 2009. Read the first chapter of YOU JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH here:
