Great story; however, the Epilogue is chilling. I don't like the ending. At the end of the book author states there is going to be a next book entitled "His Deadly Game." But since this book was published in 2014, there doesn't seem to be one coming. I HATE when authors do that--this is the very reason I usually don't read series books, but didn't know this would be an unfinished series. Skip this book!

**We did a buddy read in my book club where we were paired up with another member and chose a book for each other. This is the book that was chosen for me by my buddy. It was a fun experience and I hope we do it again at some point! It's fun to be introduced to new books and/or authors and see what other friends are reading and what they like. I hope she likes the one I picked for her!** Now on to the review....   This is a hard book to review without giving too much away. I think I did okay and this shouldn't need a spoiler warning. Proceed at your own risk though. I went into this a little blind. I read the blurb but didn't read any of the reviews (still haven't) and thought okay, this sounds interesting! Then the prologue completely threw me because it sounded like it was going to go in a completely different direction than I was anticipating from the blurb. And, boy did it! The book was really good. A few wrong words here and there that became a little annoying. And she screwed up the names in the  middle of the book and left it that way for the rest of the book. It was just a middle name, so it shouldn't have been a big deal, and wouldn't have been if she didn't keep having people address the hero with his first and middle names. Once it was changed, it did stay consistent though, it didn't keep changing back and forth. She also used the "c" word, which is probably the one word that I hate the most but she only used it once. I'm no prude, I just don't like that word, personally, and it jars me out of the action when I see it. Aurora has only had one sexual partner - her husband, who was also her high school sweetheart. She was very unsure of herself, seemed to have low self esteem and maybe even a little shy...this just didn't seem like the kind of word she would use. I liked Aurora, she was likable and fun, and her little boy was cute. The difficulties between Aurora and her ex-husband were believable as were the issues that Aurora had because of it. The suspense built. I suspected everybody...and I did manage to figure out part of it. I'm usually pretty good about figuring things out ahead of time. Then came the end with a HUGE TWIST that I didn't see coming and I gotta say, I was ready to strangle the author! The author's first words after the end of the book were literally "Ok. I know. Ya'll hate me right now." Seriously! I was pissed! That said, it is a good book and worth reading. It has a good message about being careful about internet dating, likable characters, interesting plot and is paced well. She wrote the little kids very well, which some authors can't pull off. There will be a sequel but it doesn't have what I really considered a cliffhanger.  There's also a teaser chapter of the sequel at the end, so you get a little peek, although it hasn't been released yet. I haven't decided yet if I want to read it or not.

I love Dawn Robertson and her HERS series and was excited to read something new from her. Statistic does not disappoint and will keep you guessing until the end….and maybe after! We follow Aurora, a divorced single mom trying her hand at online dating. We’re there as Aurora struggles to find a balance between her career, her son and trying to date. If you’re a fan of DR, her writing is everything you’d expect. After reading the prologue, you think the story is all laid out for you but things are definitely NOT what they seem. Read with caution because when you finally take a breath….it’s not over. Certain scenes aren’t as explicit as in the HERS series and that is OK. I Ioved that she was able to show her versatility as a writer. If this is your first DR book, I have no doubt you’ll become a fan.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.  I need to say that i LOVE Dawn Robertson's books. They are always on the darker side and while that typically doesn't appeal to me her writing style has drawn me in and its hard not to get emotionally involved with her characters. Until now Hers and Seven has been my favorite book and lead character...but I "think" this one may have stolen the stop spot! I fell in LOVE with Aurora, going through the emotions of a recent divorce she becomes entangled with 4 men (don't we all wish we had that problem) and you KNOW one isn't who he seems to be but its near impossible to find out WHO which leaves you reading as fast as you can and the conclusion is jaw dropping! The ending came from no where and I confess i read it AGAIN immediately after because SURELY i had missed something the first time through! I can't give it away...just know that as Dawn grows as a writer so does her work, and it shows. this is a fast paced, edge of your seat "hurry turn the next page" book which I am SO grateful to have read (twice) early because I am not sure I could have waited until the release!! Highly recommend when it comes out GET IT!!!! and then REVIEW IT!!!!

Wow, where do I start? I loved this book, it has become my new favorite Dawn Robertson's book. I loved the characters they were very relatable. This story is full of suspense and keeps you guessing.  When  you think you know what is happening she throws a curve ball in the story.  Aurora is trying out online dating sites to move on since she is now divorced.  We see what she goes through to find a new relationship. This is a must read and will keep you hooked.  I couldn't put it down. You will being saying wow, what just happened after you finished this book too.  I received an ARC for an honest review.

This book blew my mind! Dawn Robertson is an Author genus! I loved every bit of this book, and it has skyrocketed to be one of my favorites for 2014! It's funny, romantic, suspenseful, dramatic, and has every bit of Dawn Robertson flair with a twist! Once you pick it up you won't put it down, I fell asleep holding my Kindle refusing to believe it was over.
