10+ JAW DROPPING, HEART RACING, CRAZY MIND [SCREW] STARS
Oh man, this book took me on one [heck] of a roller coaster ride. I spent so much of this book conflicted. I didn't know how to feel or what to expect and I was so emotionally [screwed] the last 50% of this book. So much drama and action make for a non stop page turner. I felt like I couldn't read fast enough. I wanted more and more and Kitten Jackson was giving it to me, oh so good. I actually felt like a junkie just sucking it all up. (sounds weird lol) My point is, this book was WILD and I LOVED EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF ITS CRAZINESS!!!!!!
"I don't have a choice, Abbie. You do, but I don't." "I do? So I can go? Would you let me go?" "I can't. If you go, I have nothing to live for."
So, Greg is back in this second book. Of course, how could he ever leave Abbie, the object of his affection, or should I say obsession, alone? He is determined to have her and make her want to be with him. I don't want to give anything away and spoil it for anyone who has not read this book, so I will keep it simple. Greg abducts Abbie and Taylor. He loves her in his own way and wants Abbie to love him back. As things start to unfold and the police are closing in on him, more secrets are revealed and bad things are happening all around. What happens in the end will leave you jaw dropped and heart broken.
Though this is such a wild book, I have to say there were a few funny, light hearted moments. Which is why I was able to love Greg and understand why Abbie loved him even through all his craziness. I actually laughed out loud a couple times. These are a couple of my favorite quotes:
"I know. It drives me crazy! Honey freaking Tutu! Makes me sick to my stomach." Greg laughed. "Is that the name of the reality show?" "I don't know. Something like that."
(Abbie thinking re: shower with Greg)
"This is just for the sake of saving time. It's not sexual. I don't even want it to be sexual. I don't want to see him naked. I'm not getting turned on. Oh, Lord, help me."
This book was written so well. The plot is so thick, fast, scary, heart pounding, jaw dropping, hair pulling, can't read fast enough, GOOD. I never knew what was coming or what Greg was going to do next. I felt everything that Abbie felt. I loved Greg and felt sympathy for him. Even after everything that he does, I still felt the goodness in him. That is why I sobbed at the end of this book. It was not expected and left me totally mind [screwed]. I'm still shocked at how it all played out. What gets me, is that, so much of this book if freaking crazy, yet things like this happen in this world, and that is what makes this story so much more real.
WOW! Thank you, Pearl! : )
