You’d Better Watch Yourself, Katie Kat

Katie Archer knows how to lie. After six years, no one really knows what happened That Night. Not even her twin sister. Choosing a college 3,000 miles away from the truth, Katie throws herself into art classes and a love affair with ice cream. Katie’s biggest rule? No boys. Ever.

But there is the little problem of Lucas Matthews. Former basketball star and total campus hottie, Lucas is the stuff girls have naughty dreams about—and he has the reputation to prove it! But that doesn’t stop liquid heat from running through Katie’s veins every time she sees him…

You’ll Never Get Away With It

Letting Lucas in is the hardest thing Katie’s ever had to do. And telling him the truth? Impossible. Then Katie starts to get threatening texts and she realizes Lucas is the least of her problems. Her past has caught up with her and it wants to settle the score.

I’m Coming For You

Now Katie must decide whether she wants to fight for her life, or leave everything—including Lucas—behind her forever...

Now I like to write about lonely girls and the boys who make them believe in love. I enjoy cupcakes, dimples, hoola hoops (obviously), writing in my treehouse and flirting with sexy men (who have dimples). When I’m not yachting the Mediterranean I call Montreal home.

Rooney's debut novel is gripping and romantic at the same time. Her heroine is smart, resourceful, and engaging - haunted by an event that she'll have to confront before she can find true love. A page-turner with heart. Highly recommended!

As a fan of the NA genre I love those books that juggle emotional intensity with a sweet and heartwarming romance. This story had that in spades along with a lot more. From start to finish I found myself fully engaged in this story but ultimately this was a book that left me very conflicted as to how to rate it. I enjoyed the start and how the characters were portrayed, but as the story progressed the action started to take a much darker turn and everything I thought I knew about Katie turned out to be a lie. Throughout the story though Lucas remained my one constant with emotions that he expressed truthfully. He was a good guy with pain of his own that he was remorseful over but his care and kindness got Katie to reveal the truth of her past which tarnished my admiration for her slightly. At the start of the story Katie is running from her past and tries to cut herself off from life. The only people she's let in are her sister and her next door neighbor, until the night saving a stray cat leads to meeting the sexy and charming Lucas a once popular boy who's hiding too. Though she tries to fight her attraction to him he slowly works his way into her heart and soul. As her past comes back to haunt her in a very deadly way the happiness she's found might be over before it starts, especially as she continues to keep the new threats from her past a secret. Not only is her own life in jeopardy but so too is her twin sister as a psychotic villain from her past wants her to hurt as badly as possible. Even with the danger so close Katie still didn't fully disclose to anyone other than Lucas, and even with him I didn't feel her remorse was that deep. In my opinion her part in this cruel deed from the past made her just as guilty. Until this point in the story I felt she was punishing herself too much, but this revelation made me think she deserved more punishment and I became disillusioned in her. Even after the final terrorizing moments with the villain from her past didn't completely redeem her in my eyes. Katie was clearly a complicated character compared to Lucas. Her personality twisted and turned as opposed to Lucas and his calm and unwavering support tempered with his own quiet dealings with his past. He was everything you'd want in a book boyfriend and added a much needed bit of sweetness to a story that became increasingly difficult to swallow as events from Katie's past came to light. Along with a compelling main couple there was a small group of cohorts surrounding Katie who were colorful and carefree in how they lived their lives which reinforced how closed off Katie had become. Even with its few flaws this was still a compelling read that kept you on the edge of your seat. With its admirable hero and tarnished heroine it sets itself apart from other books in this increasingly popular genre and has me excited for what the author has planned next.

Put Me Back Together was so much more than I expected and a perfect mix of suspense and romance. This is a fantastic debut novel from a talented new author. I look forward to more from her! Put Me Back Together by Lola Rooney was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

*CONTAINS SPOILER* Where to begin, I’m totally torn how to rate this book. On one hand it is well written; her fear that Brandon has found her, her guilt stopping her from being friends with Mariella because her child is the same age as Tommy was palpable but there my sympathy for the character ends. I liked her at the start but I just cannot see past the horror of her past influence. That aspect of this fictional story just left too much distaste in my mouth to see past that and to the otherwise sweet love story of her and Lucas. I applaud that the author was not being afraid to approach this subject from such a controversial viewpoint but it did not work for me as I could not feel anything for what Katie had been through mentally. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I wasn't sure if I should read this book because there was only one review. But I'm glad I gave in and read it. It is very good and I had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait for more of her books to come out.
