WATCH YOUR BACK
I'M COMING FOR YOU
Lylah and her friends can't wait to spend a night out together. Partying is the perfect way to let loose from the stress of life and school, and Lylah hopes that hitting the dance floor with Chace, her best friend, will bring them closer together. She's been crushing on him since they met. If only he thought of her the same way...
The girls are touching up their makeup and the guys are sliding on their coats when the doorbell rings. No one is there. An envelope sits on the doormat. It's an anonymous note addressed to their friend Sonny. A secret admirer? Maybe. They all laugh it off.
Except Sonny never comes home. And a new note arrives:
I received a copy for an honest review
I gave this book 4 stars. This was a really quick read. All you want to do is sit down and find out who the killer is and what the motive is and really what the hell is going on.
Our story centers around Lylah, an English college student and her group of friends who all live in a house together. They begin to receive these love letters with serial killer letters cut out of magazines.
The story is thrilling. I’ve found that a lot of YA thrillers can be rather tame as they are for a younger audience than just straight up thrillers, but this one pulled no punches. It was gruesome, nerve-wracking, and an utter conundrum of a plot line.
These characters are so stupid. There is a killer actively stalking them and they decide to get their minds off it by going to bars and parties. Reckless. So unbelievably reckless I can’t process it. Also, cops tell them not to go off on their own and that’s exactly what these idiots do. Are you trying to get murdered?
(Minor Spoilers in next Paragraph)
It really annoyed me that throughout the novel everyone was just so convinced it was Jake. They had pretty much no evidence it was him but they kept saying it was him. Spoiler Alert, it wasn’t him. He was just too obvious of a choice. The actual killer didn’t come off as too much of a surprise to me, they were off pretty much the whole book. We were all just naive enough to believe that the killings were romantic in any way.
Also, what an ending! Everything looks good and then BAM! The last sentence of the book shakes everyone to their very core. Honestly, very good way to end the book. Now I’m curious as to if there will be another installment or if the author just wants to leave the reader thinking about that from now on.
