Review: You by Caroline Kepnes


Love hurts...

When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he’s instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She’s gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams.

Beck doesn’t know it yet, but she’s perfect for him, and soon she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences . . .

A chilling account of unrelenting passion, Caroline Kepnes’s You is a perversely romantic thriller that’s more dangerously clever than any you’ve read before.

My Review
First, let me get this out there... This is NOT romance.. Well not your typical romance.. But if you are like Joe, or can relate to Joe, then sure... it'll be romance. I don't know what I was expecting when I went into this book, but it wasn't what I got. I think I expected this book to turn into a romance with slight stalking.. I was, oh, so wrong. 

Joe runs a bookstore and it is easy to see from the beginning that something is off with Joe. But you would never know that if you weren't in his head, hearing his fucked up thought process. I have to give props to Caroline Kepnes, she takes this sick, twisted, obsessive man and then makes me start to feel sorry for him. I had to constantly remind myself,at certain times, that he was CRAZY. 

Beck's first mistake was walking into the bookstore. But it certainly wasn't her last. The woman herself is no saint. She may be just as bad as Joe. At first, I felt sorry for her, then the more I got to know her the more I really couldn't stand her. 

Joe's obsession escalates through the entire book and Beck becomes transparent, but he is too consumed with her. This was a twisted story and it kind of takes stalking to a whole new level. Joe seems so normal to anyone he meets and is, I am guessing, easy on the eyes. So to imagine this man stalking anyone is crazy, but it happens. I also have to say how clever Joe is.

This was so well written in my opinion, and I am so glad I decided to read it. Every once in awhile you need to mix things up and You did not disappoint. It took a little bit to adjust to the way it was written, like a story being told, but it worked so well. So if you need to mix it up, then this is a good one to read!

4 Stars!

Kinzleigh's life came crashing down after that tragic day leaving her in a whirlwind of despair. How do you move on from something when you have a secret no one knows; a constant reminder of something so beautiful that was taken as if it never existed? 

Kinzleigh Baker was the golden girl. She never partied or gave her parents an ounce of trouble. She sure as heck didn't venture out with boys. She had hopes and dreams that could only be obtained by keeping a clear head; free from emotions that only hold you back. She had her life planned out like a book, moving forward chapter by chapter. What she didn't expect was for fate to knock her off that pedestal she has been on by throwing at her one unexpected thing after another. 

Finally learning we can't always control the life we planned out for ourselves she accepted the destiny she was given and even embraced it, finding a love many people never experience in a lifetime. What happens, though, when fate laughs in your face just to drastically change it all again? 

Kinzleigh has realized hopes and dreams are useless. Why even bother trying when everything always gets taken from you? The only way to abstain from hurt is to have no aspirations or expectations. After finally trying to pick up the pieces of her life and live the only way she knows how, fate gets the last move again and throws in a twist no one expected. Will she finally get the ending to her story?

Lasting Fate, book three(final segment)

Lasting Fate (Fate, #3)We can't always control what happens in our lives. If anyone has learned that it's Kinzleigh Baker. She has learned to embrace the moments and live like there is no tomorrow; to love the people that we are given with all that we have. She knows all too well what it's like to have your heart ripped from your chest and doesn't care to ever experience that feeling again.

Her life has been one roller coaster of overwhelming consequences back to back. Kinzleigh has learned some of the humility she was once lacking as an adolescent. She has found out the hard way that we can't always focus on ourselves or take the important people in our lives for granted. She is working hard to live by putting one foot in front of the other. She is now forcefully embarking on a new journey; one that will be sure to cause lots of trials and tribulations on its own.

What would you do if God gave you that second chance to the one thing you would change if you could? One tragedy that could be reversed perhaps or someone from your past waltzing back into your life unannounced. Would you take it and run with it or go a different route altogether?

One Week of Summer by Amber Rides 

With no mother she can remember, a father lost years ago, and a beloved grandmother gone too, Maggie Mooreland knows the meaning of the word like no other. 

By age fourteen, she was labeled as such by her peers. And she couldn't fight it. Or even deny it. By seventeen, she might as well have had it tattooed on her forehead. 

Even now that she is eighteen, and officially an adult, it's still a foreign concept. An ideal never to be realized. Something for others to have and for Maggie to envy. 

Until she meets him. Theodore Kimball (Teekay) Marcus. He's wild and spontaneous and gorgeous and the heir to a real estate fortune. He knows what he wants and he takes it. And remarkably, incredibly - he sees Maggie as more than just the sum of her past. 

But it's not going to be easy. 

Teekay has them. Maggie knows it. And they're like an unhealed wound, waiting to be bumped in just the wrong way so they can bleed all over again. 
He's hiding something that can hurt her. 
He's hiding something that's already hurting himself. 
And Maggie is terrified that this is the beginning of the end. 


A lot can happen in seven days. But will it be long enough to heal their hearts and their minds? Or will it tear them both apart?

The Game of Love (A Love Rekindled and A New Love)

Warning: This story contains content which is intended for readers over the age of 18.

A Love Rekindled (The Game of Love #1)

Jessica was a sexy twenty five year old. Her friends at work talked her into going to a party at a co-worker's house. She had not been out in a very long time. She agreed to go, thinking she could leave after an hour and get back home.

Luke was a gorgeous football player who had just returned home after being injured playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers. His friend from college, Linda, tried to get him out of the house. She finally got him to agree to go to a party she was having and even talked him into taking one of her friends as his date.

Jessica arrived at the party to hang out with her friends from work. Her friend John pulled her along to dance with him. They laughed and joked as he dipped her. That was when she spotted Luke, her high school sweetheart, with her friend Heather. The only man she had ever truly loved.

Luke could not believe it, when his eyes connected with Jessica's. She was the woman who tore his heart in two. It took all he had not to turn around and take off out the door. His friend Linda pulled him into her home to show him around and meet her friends.

Jessica's heart raced as Linda brought Luke and Heather over to introduce him to the group from work. Her hands shook as Linda introduced her to Luke. She said a simple hello as he looked into her eyes in shock. Jessica excused herself to go over to the couch.

Jessica could not take it, she had to get out of there. Without saying a word, she took off out the door to her car. How could he have been at the party? Why was he with her friend Heather? Why did he have to look even sexier than she remembered?

When Luke couldn't get her off his mind, he knew that he had to see her. He pulled up in front of her house and could not believe what he saw. Luke wanted answers.

A New Love (The Game of Love #2)

Renee was a confident twenty three year old woman. She spent the past six years helping her sister raise her nephew Lucas. Renee took her nephew shopping for the day so her sister could have some alone time. They were on their way home, when out of nowhere, Renee heard a loud crash and felt her body slam against the car door.

Dillon was a thirty five year old police officer. He was driving through the mall parking lot when he saw a young woman screaming and noticed the smashed in car. Dillon ran to the car and looked through the window. His heart dropped, and he felt the air leave his lungs as memories rushed through his mind. There was a little boy in the car, and he wasn't moving. It was the one thing Dillon didn't like about his job. Accidents involving children were hard for him. The sound of the woman yelling snapped him out of his head, and he hurried to help the boy.

The accident changed Renee's thoughts on life. She blamed herself for what happened to her nephew. Renee was sure she could have done something to avoid being hit.

When Dillon went to the hospital to check on the little boy, he could see that Renee was blaming herself. It tore at his insides that she was taking the blame. The situation hit close to home for him. He handed her his card and hurried on his way.

When Dillon offered to help Renee, she accepted it. Her family began changing, and she was lost. It was time for her to find a life of her own. She had no idea what she wanted to do. It was the first time she was living for herself and not for everyone else.

There was something about Renee that drew him in. Dillon found himself wanting to help her, but he knew falling in love was not an option. He had come to terms with growing old alone.

When Renee realized that love and a family was what she wanted, how would Dillon React?
Could he look beyond the past and allow himself a future with happiness, or would he let her walk out of his life and stay alone forever?

Addictive Lunacy (Compulsions, #1)Calum Alexander lived his life one way. With purpose and moderation. Everything was set in place and everything happened according to a plan. 

That is, until his picture perfect engagement falls apart and his crazy brother Lucas gets him to agree to a night out. Calum is left to fend for himself when Lucas decides to bail, and "fend for himself" he will need to.

A vivacious and obviously young Livana Payne catches his attention and before he knows what's going on, they end up talking. By the end of the night, Calum is on fire for the impish girl who's managed to ignite an inferno within him. 

Yes, she’s twelve years younger and the complete opposite of what he’d imagined in his life, but he hungers for her in a way that’s frightening. Drunk and surprisingly out of control, he's dead set on his need to have her.

But the moment he accidentally lets it be known that he's recently single, Livana is having none of it. There is no way she's getting involved with a man who just broke up with his fiance. 

No, they were going to have to wait. Calum’s need for her somehow kept growing. As the days went by and he got to know her more, Livana seemed to be stealing all of his sanity.

As much as she wants to wait it quickly becomes obvious to Calum that he’s losing his grip to the monster she’d awakened within him. 

He’s about to lose control and when he does, he knows there’s going to be nothing gentle about what he’ll end up doing to her . . .

Compulsive Fascinations by N. Isabelle Blanco

Compulsive Fascinations (Compulsions, #2)He owns her—Every. Single. Breath. She just doesn't want to admit it. To him, or herself. . .

You get hurt once; you assume that’s the norm. You see others suffer; you assume that’s the norm, too. 

At least, that’s what Livana once did. One rough go-around was enough for her. After that, she kept it simple, no strings attached. It was just easier that way. Even necessary.

Until she went out one night and met Calum Alexander, a man whose intensity broke through each of her defenses, leaving her vulnerable.

Afraid to fall in love, she tries to keep some of her walls up around herself, even though Calum is determined not to let her. 

Faced with a man that seems intent on possessing her, Liv knows it’s a mere matter of time before she no longer has a choice.

That is...until Calum's own insecurities come to the fore, throwing their new, fragile relationship into a tailspin. 

Will the feelings between them be strong enough to keep them together, or will their issues get in the way of what they had just started to build?

Cover Reveal: Behind Your Back by Chelsea M. Cameron



Today is the cover reveal for Chelsea M. Cameron's upcoming title, BEHIND YOUR BACK. This book will be released in February 2015 but be sure to check out the author's note below for some special news about the release!



Add the book to GOODREADS.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This past summer I traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland for a book signing. It was my first trip outside of the US and I was nervous as hell. While I was on the plane and begging for my motion sickness medication to kick in, I started thinking about a character I didn’t “know” yet. Every now and then I will get a character’s voice in my head and not have a story for them. More often than not, my books start with just one character. I don’t know where the story is going, or what they’re going to do. I only have their voice guiding me. I told myself I wasn’t going to work on anything new on my trip, since I already had existing deadlines. But of course the voice ignored me. He kept talking to me. I couldn’t resist, so I started working on his story in my gorgeous hotel room with its view of Edinburgh castle. I wrote some more words at the Elephant House, which is where J. K. Rowling started writing the first Harry Potter book. Over vegetable lasagna and jasmine tea, a story started to develop. It was different than anything I’d ever written. Told completely from a male point of view. It was also a romantic suspense, something I’d been dying to try writing, but didn’t think I had the ability to do. I called my mother in my excitement and her words were “that’s completely different than anything you’ve ever written.” This is that story. And since this story is so completely different, I’m doing something different when I release it. In February (date to be determined), you will not only get the first book on that day, Behind Your Back, you will also be able to buy the sequel, Back To Back! No weeks or months of waiting to find out what happens. You can read the two books in one day if you want. Instant gratification. I hope you fall in love with these books as much as I have while writing them.  

 She wears a wig and colored contacts the first time I see her in person. Her electric green eyes are too memorable, even in a crowd. But underneath the plain brown wig and the brown contacts and the bored expression she wears, something shines through that she can’t cover up. I recognize it right away, even if I wouldn’t have been searching for her. Raising myself from my chair, I cross the coffee shop. She watches her phone, pretending to be the kind of girl who can’t abandon her Facebook page for longer than three seconds. But I know. I know her. Her finger hovers over the screen of the phone, her shoulders slump, but her foot jiggles just a little bit. Not enough for anyone but me to notice. But I see it. I see her. I pass by her table on my way out the door. I give her one glance. A visual brush over her body. I know she sees me, but pretends not to. She pushes the wig back and I can just barely see the flash of red hair at the nape of her neck, along with a tattoo. I can’t see all of it, but I don’t need to. I know that, too. A Celtic knot. I pass through the door and don’t look back. Her eyes follow me down the street to the crosswalk and until I’m out of view. She sees me.

Cover Reveal: Dirty Ties by Pam Godwin

I race to finance it.
I evade to protect it.
I kill to attain it.
I planned everything.

Except her.
The alluring, curvaceous blonde at the finish line.
With sapphire eyes that cheat and lie.
Whose powerful family murdered mine.

I hate her.
I want her.

I know she’s hiding something.
But so am I.

Expected Release Date : January 12th, 2015


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
