Oh my where to start. Well this one was so much fun. I was hooked from chapter one!
Since I just read Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard, my brain automatically compared the two, especially since both came out the top as five star reads for me.
This one was better juuuust a little (because I read it most recently?) The plot line was interesting. It was a good first book to a series, but the plot line in the book itself as a standalone was sturdy and firm and (as opposed to Always Look Twice) I really liked the ending of this one. All the loose ends tied up nicely, at least the ones that didn’t extend to the next book.
The characters were so well done. XD I loved Sean as a character. He was pretty awesome. I didn’t fall for him as a fiction boyfriend though. He was too quick and bossy for my personal preferences.
Taylor was awesome. Her complex build up and backstory and her passion and quiet strength just blended together so well! I can’t even describe how well done she was.
Content: As a suspense there were two murders described, though not overly details (Still, discretion advised) There were a few intense scenes that could be stressful. Hacker was paranoid and rash and threatened lives.
The romantic tension in this book was quite a bit higher in this book than in Always Look Twice. The dynamics between Taylor and Sean were reeeeeal. Sparks were there for sure. We watched them fly. Sean noticed Taylor’s body, but not in an inappropriate way. There were several hand holdings, two detailed kisses and a couple not-detailed kisses.
There was suggestion and encouragement for a character to get hypnosis treatment to retrieve memories which personally goes against my beliefs, and I just wanted to put it out there for whoever else would want to avoid that. It’s not described in the book and not preformed on screen, but it was portrayed in a positive light.
AGE SUGGESTION: 16 AND UP
Five stars from me! I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, a positive review was not required and all opinions are my own!
Live, Laugh, and love, girls!
