My Review 5 Frienemy Stars
Alright so of course I don't read what the books are about any more so when I started reading this one and found out that it was in the POV of both the killer and the main heroin I was freaking out in a good way! Then add in the paranormal element and well my fan girl feels were over flowing!!
This one will knock your socks off. You won't find out who the killer is until the very end then your all like OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! because of something that happens. So yep this one will keep you guessing and just when you think you have it all figured out BAM you don't!
The heroine is hit by a car and now she sees everyone’s death. Which was so new! This is a great contemporary with a hint of the supernatural, it worked out so well! No love triangle in this one, well unless you count the stalker. And no cliffhanger. However the author left it open so if she wanted to she could come back and do some more. I so wouldn't mind a book two!!!
I loved how powerful Eva is. She is a no nonsense girl in the best ways. Instead of freaking out that she can see others people's deaths she makes it work for her to save her friends and those she loves. Melissa Marr has brought us a kick butt heroine that would make any bad guy run for the hills. And hey she's doing this with a broken leg and a cast! So how cool is that?
As for our leading man Nate, can I just say SWOON! He has a checkered past, but it’s all good. He really comes to Eva's aid. Plus, well they are so cute together.
I also have to say that I LOVED Eva's mom. Their relationship changes and evolves over the course of this book. So much that it was just heartwarming and full of cuddly feels.
As for the bad guy, I have to say that he is definitely a villain I love to hate. He was perfect. It was interesting being in his creepy deranged mind (someone hold me). It was a wonderful new POV to read from and I hope that this author does it again in the future.
The plot was incredible as was the end. The setting worked out well (set in our time frame so no flying cars etc here). The story flowed so well that you will be on the last page before you know it.
This is definitely a book not to miss.
Go Into This One Knowing
This is a fast and creepy read with no cliffhanger and no love triangle, (unless you count the creepy guy.....Which were NOT).
