This is a very good book. It starts off to be a normal story. There is a girl named Scarlett Wakefield who isn't popular. She falls in love with a guy named Dan McAndrew, whom she can't be with because one, apparently someone else has her eyes on him and two, she is from a totally different level then him. Suddenly a miracle happens and she suddenly finds herself kissing him at a party but in a few minutes... he's dead. Which begins our not so normal story. It holds a hint of mystery from the title all the way to the last page. Suspenseful, you will not be able to put this book down. From the moment she begins, something tells you that disaster is soon to follow. I personally thought that as a mystery/romance it was very good. I was never to the point where it frighten me and made me want to put the book down which makes it good for younger readers. Lauren Henderson really got through to my emotions. From the anger of getting accused for something you didn't do to that one moment of fear when you're about to be caught. It wasn't one of those books where it's obvious who the murderer was but instead twisting and deceiving. You won't be able to tell who is good and who is bad. You can see the reality of what girls can be: cruel, vicious, back-stabbing, and above all when it comes down to it a demon in angel clothing. (Don't get the wrong idea some girls are really nice.)

a little boring

Kiss Me Kill Me was pretty boring after the protagonist said she already killed the guy she kissed. The ending was incomplete and confusing.

    Not the best.

    This book was pretty boring and hard to get through, so I eventually just gave up on reading it. When a book this short takes me a couple of weeks to get through, I think that is most definitely a bad sign. The only part that was even mildly interesting in the first half of the book that I read was the guy dying, and even that wasn't too interesting, it seemed so unrealistic and unlikely. And creepy, but not in a good way.

    I think when I put this book away on my bookshelf, it will most definitely be forgotten.

    Definitely a Forgettable Book

    I was intrigued by the cover art and the description in the cover. I thought it would be a good mystery read. It starts with the average main character, Scarlett, hanging out with her two average friends and dishing about the latest gossip that is going on with the coveted "popular group", led by Plum, an average looking rich girl with a royalty status. Scarlett is invited to hang out with the 'popular girls' and, leaving her friends behind she attends a party with them. Scarlett kisses Dan, her long time crush and he dies, mid-kiss at the party. The story goes on with Scarlett moving schools and trying her damnedest to figure out what happened, making a new friend and meeting a new boy on the way. While the plot is unique and intriguing, the climax is ridiculous and it really had me wishing I could get the two nights back that it took me to read the book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Just Okay

    After the boy of her dreams drops dead after kissing her, Scarlett's teen age life falls apart (although it wasn't much together to begin with). "Kiss Me, Kill Me" follows Scarlett in the aftermath of the tragedy as she copes with the tragedy and eventually decides to get to the bottom of the terrible event. A teenage mystery that is just okay. However, it reads quickly and is apparently the first in a series of books about Scarlett and her quest for the truth. While I found this book slightly dull and sleepy, I will admit that I will pick up the next in the series if I run across it - - just to see how this will develop!

    What?

    DON'T spend $15 on this book like i did. I get that there will be a sequel so it's slightly understandable that the author left the ending unresolved, but really? Throughout the entire book Scarlette tries to find Dan's murderer and 230 pages later when she finally finds ONE clue... the book ends. That's not a thrilling mystery, that's wasting paper.
