Ok you ready to check out the book that caught my attention?
Ali Ryan has dreamed of being a hot shot detective that solves high profile cases. Her love for crime novels and police dramas was her inspiration to become a cop, but it was her pushy demeanor and sassy impulsive attitude that earned her the detective promotion she coveted. But is your dream job worth sacrificing the ones you love?
The fall semester for New Paltz has begun complete with a dead body turning up in the dorms. Police claim the case is open and shut, but Detective Ali Ryan doesn’t think so. She throws herself into the case desperately searching for answers as the death toll on campus rises; each made to look like a suicide.
With Ali getting closer to uncovering the truth, the killer wants to make his attacks more personal. His sights are set on Detective Ryan and her sister. Police are forced to place them under their protection, but Ali is determined to hunt down the killer and stop him before he kills again. But how far is Detective Ryan willing to go to protect her sister and take down the sadistic killer?
HERE'S A LITTLE SNEAK PEEK INSIDE THE BOOK!!
“They look a little more green today then they usually do.” Jess stared into his eyes for a few moments.
“What are you doing for dinner,” he asked.
Jess looked at the time on a nearby clock and saw it was a quarter after three. “Shit, I’m gonna be late. Sorry, I’m supposed to be at work in fifteen minutes. I’ll see you tonight when I get back.”
Jess ran out the door; leaving the man behind. His lips curled into a smile as he considered the possibility of dating Jess; even scoring one date with her would mean the world to him.
AND NOW FOR MY REVIEW!
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me on my toes and kept me guessing. It was clean but definitely filled with tension and moments happiness alike. It definitely kept you involved both for the content of the story and emotionally. I kept thinking I had things figured out when there would be another plot twist I did not see coming. It wasn't scary, but definitely had tension where you would wonder and hope that the killer would be caught or that someone may or may not be saved in time. It's crazy how invested I got in this story and I'm so anxious for the next book to come out. I would recommend this to anyone, easily! It's a great story!
