Three people. One night. And, an ending that you won't see coming! Full of tension and suspense. I found myself devouring chapter after chapter with no regard to how little sleep I would be getting that night. Roam takes you on a literal thrill ride. I am fully invested in Therme as an author, now. *I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

I absolutely loved the characters in story. Erik Therme has done a fabulous job with not only a great plot, but the detail he has put into each one of the characters. Each person had their own issues to deal with, and I found myself totally lost between the pages for many enjoyable hours. It’s amazing how quickly you can read a book when it’s this good. When Sarah and her boyfriend’s car break down, it initially wasn’t such a great thing to happen on her birthday, but when she finally wakes up to what he’s really like, it turns into a blessing. This gives Sarah to chance to get away from him, and when she accepts a ride from a couple of guys that come along, it also gives her time to think about her life and the choices she has been making. Kevin and his friend drop Sarah off at her home, but when things don’t go well with her mum, she walks out the house and literally runs into Kevin’s car again, and she takes the opportunity to jump in. This will take them both on a journey together looking for her friend Scott, and in the process open up to each other about their lives and ambitions. However nothing was meant to be easy, and there are obstacles along the way. I like a story that I’m still thinking about, long after I’ve finished the last page. Do yourself a favour and read this book, it really is that good. His other books ‘Rest Haven’ and ‘Mortom’ are also great stories, and well worth a look at.

This was one of those books where none of the characters really went anywhere or did really much of anything, but the nothing that they did was so dramatic that the reader is compelled to finish the story.

Review via EpicBookQuest.com Sarah is having a horrible birthday. Her car has broken down on the side of the road, stranding her and her drunken boyfriend in the middle of nowhere. When a heated argument gets out of hand she strikes out on her own into the dark, unaware of the danger that awaits her. When Kevin sees a beautiful girl in distress walking down the road, he offers her a lift in his Camaro -a simple attempt to pay forward an act of kindness he once received. But as the night wears on he finds himself falling for a girl he knows nothing about, and who might just be more trouble than he bargained for. Scotty is battling his own inner demons after the death of his father. The guilt that eats away at him is slowly causing him to lose his grip on reality, and he finds himself driven by a fear that may lead him to do the unthinkable. ROAM follows the stories of three broken people all trying to make sense of the troubled world they live in- and whose paths are about to intersect in a way that will forever change their lives. While it’s much darker than the author’s previous two novels, almost a gritty-noir / psychological thriller take on YA (and I can only imagine if Thilliez wrote YA, this is what it would look like), it still maintains the character complexity and suspenseful plot development I’ve really come to associate with this author. If you read and enjoyed MORTOM or RESTHAVEN, I think you’ll enjoy this one as well. Readers should be warned, however, that the book covers some pretty heavy subject matter, from sex and drugs to mental illness and abuse, yet with a redeeming ending that I think really pulls it all together. Over all, a complex and suspenseful read that both holds your attention and stays with you well after you turn the last page. A great pick for fans of thrillers/suspense and YA alike. Rating: 4 stars I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book follows Sarah, Matt, Kevin, and Scotty. Sarah and Matt are broke down on the side of the road when Kevin comes by and picks Sarah up after she begins walking. Sarah decides to find her friend Scotty, while Matt decides to come for revenge. Who is in danger here is anyones guess? Will it be Matt or Sarah? Scotty or Kevin? Read and find out.  This book was ok. I liked the way it ended, but most of it was a bit repetitive and jumbled. At times I got a bit confused as to what was going on. The characters were interesting and they held a lot of promise, but the story itself lacked the action and scare that I was expecting. All the action came right at the end. I have always enjoyed books by this author, but this one just wasn't my favorite.
