I requested this book because I have yet to read a New Adult romantic suspense and I thought that this book might bring something different to the genre. Unfortunately the suspense portion of the story hinged on rather dumb people and highly suspect coincidences lending a feeling of unbelievability to the entire story. That was the only thing that came off authentic in the entire book. Jess Mackey is the missing daughter of a presidential candidate.

It was a surprisingly intense, dramatically heart stopping read. It gave me tingles, turned me on and freaked me out all at the same time. The prologue was freaky It definitely started the book out perfectly 4. It definitely started the book out perfectly. When I started reading I had no idea what the book was about. I was basically browsing Goodreads my favorite thing to do and saw my friend Jennifer's rating.
I started it that night and finished it ridiculously fast. I found once I opened the book I could not put it down. Even though I was drawn in from the beginning the start of the first couple chapters were a little rough. I loved the prologue but felt that there were too many characters introduced too quickly and honestly there were a couple moments that I felt a little lost. We meet Mitch, Devin, Brad and Brock all within a very short period of time.
It was most definitely hot boy overload. I mean are there ever enough hot book boys?!? NO, not really. Once I got over the initial shock of all of the men and started reading it was like I couldn't read it fast enough.
The authors writing was thoroughly addicting. Taking small chunks out of who I am until I wasn't me anymore. She lives her life trying to escape from her psychotic step brother Thad Thaddeus McLeod. You see Jess aka Jewell is a dancer. Well at this audition she meets Mitch who is gorgeous and sweet. This starts a little love triangle that makes your head spin.
Cas is a sexy bad boy yeah he has a motorcycle Definitely the kind of man that us women dream about. Castile is like an unmovable force. A hurricane on a course, destination known only to it. The trajectory likely to change at anytime. The safe choice. He wants to be the knight in shining armor for her. Mitch knows that she has secrets, things from her past that she keeps close and guarded.
BUT this plot has twists and turns. Things are not what they seem!! Situations happen that leave your head spinning and your heart pulsating. This is definitely not your run of the mill bubblegum romance.
View all 31 comments. A fantastic read with angst, drama, suspense, and a steamy love triangle!!! Jess aka Jewell has been through a lot. Two years ago, she has to run away from her family. Her parents are influential and her step brother is a psycho. She has changed her name, hair color, eye color, everything about her. She has spent the last two years living under the radar. That is about to change. And for the fist time in two years I really begin to live.
The secret has been killing me. Her life changes even more that day. She has other friends- like Brad in biology kind of loved this guy!!! The day of her audition, she meets Mitch La Hunk who clearly has the hots for her. Mitch seems nice and safe. That day, she also sees him for the first time.

REVIEW: A Terrible Love by Marata Eros
By Marata Eros. The solid wooden doors of the closet shake as he pounds them. Thwack, punch, rattle. He always used to. I listen to her wail in the background, sweat beading on the tender part of my upper lip as I roll it in my mouth to keep from crying out. I thought I could hide.
