This is a great read, couldn't put it down, looking forward to the next book in the series!
Tori was adopted when she was a young girl. With her 18th birthday around the corner, she decides that she would like to find her birth parents. Theo is new to their school and Tori loses all train of thought when he's around. Soon, things start to get heated between the two of them and she feels it's only fitting to introduce Theo to her father at her birthday dinner. The night of the dinner everything goes to hell in handbasket with a pretty red bow. Nothing is as it seems anymore. Not her parents, Theo, even the bullies at school. Although it suddenly makes sense why her parents taught her how to fight and to use a gun. Now, it's time for the truth, leaving Tori more confused than ever. Loved this book! At first I wondered why the prologue was about characters that weren't in the book. It didn't make sense to me. Then, the more I read, the more it made sense! LOL! I thought the book started out a little slow, but otherwise the author had me flipping the pages wanting more. I needed to figure out what the heck was going on with Tori. What craziness was going to happen next? Once the story gets going and events reveal themselves, you can pretty much put every character in their place. A felt like a couple of the supporting characters needed a bit more background to them, but other than that it was very well written. However, a few things nagged at me that needed answers. A couple things confused me in the end. If Theo knew of Carmine's family, why didn't he recognize Gia? I would think in that life, you what your enemies look like. Why were Dani & Shelby dragged into that house and how did they get out? Only a small explanation is given for how they got there, not why. I'm also still confused on how Kevin and Landon tie into the whole thing and what they were supposed to get out of it. That wasn't really explained at all. And why, was Kevin want Tori so much?? Dani's book is next, so maybe we'll get a few answers there. All in all, it was a great book! *I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
