New Adult | High School Romance | Suspense
Callie Rae has written an exciting novel here and I am so glad I took a chance on a new to me author. This book had everything I wanted: a new adult crowd, a brooding bad boy, and enough suspense to leave me intrigued. I didn’t know this would end in a cliffhanger and while I’m bummed that it did, I am really looking forward to seeing what happens next with Fallon and Jesse. Things just got REALLY dicey!
My first thoughts when reading this one is that it’s similar to Boys of Brayshaw High. Not in a sense that this book copies that plot because it DOESN’T, but because we have a new adult/young adult crossover with a demure heroine, an alpha/protective hero, some suspense, and secondary characters that completely imprint themselves on your heart. I loved these characters to pieces and want to shout it out to all new adult romances lovers ESPECIALLY if you’re a fan of the Brayshaw series by Meagan Brandy. I know there are many readers who look for similar books and this one right here is that.
Another thing I loved about this book is the underlying emotion that flows through the characters. It’s pretty clear early on that they all put on a front, acting as if they don’t have the weight of the world on their shoulders when in reality they DO. It makes perfect sense for their age group (thank you for writing a book that FITS with the age of the characters), and it shows us that deep down we are all facing (or have faced) demons. For Fallon it’s a pretty emotional secret that she’s hiding and the way it twists around the story is incredible. Callie did an amazing job with this! For Jesse it’s something closer to home… It will be interesting to see how his issues play out in the next one! **Crosses fingers that it’s coming SOON.**
All in all, this is an amazing debut and I enjoyed reading it immensely. I read it in a day as it’s just over 200 pages, and I was so invested in the book that I didn’t want to put it down! Obviously, I recommend this one!
