*Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.
This series contains feelings after sex, good girls staying good (unless they don’t want to), good boys turning bad, great friends flipping sides, close lovers falling backwards, sassy mouths, stubborn jackasses, and a fight for the one, all in the name of f*cked up love.
But whose love is twisted?
In nine weeks Charlie Miller’s life goes from high-rolling perfection to a crypt of sin. All it takes is one night, one blade, and her boyfriend, best friend and new friends all either end up as suspects or dead.
Nate Westcott, a pierced, tattooed, charismatic lawyer, is a man she can’t have—but a seductive danger she can’t ignore. He’s cocky, infuriating, brilliant and wrong, yet he makes her question whether she really is the good girl she wants to be or more like the selfish killer everyone thinks she is.
And her body wants him in ways she’s not supposed to crave.
As the weeks close in, cracks start forming in her everyday world of pro football golden boys, law school domination and New York City nightlife. Everyone she cares about is at risk because one of them doesn’t love Charlie back. In fact, they want her out of the way. Disposed of. Set up.
One more step, and all Charlie has to do is fall through.
Week 1 starts now.
WHO WILL SNAP?
Snapped is Ketley’s New Adult Novella series with all the romance you’d expect, but the killer—and lovers—that you don’t.
One problem – TOO FAST AND TOO ABRUPT.
(Okay, that was two problems.)
This story went by way too fast! I know there is only 90 pages but still, it ended too quickly and I have so many questions! It’s the first time I’ve seen an author using a flashback method to start off her story and I actually do like it!
It got me a little confused at first but it only lasted for the first few pages. I started off the book with curiousity because I was really intrigued about the story. Recently, my favourite kind of romance has been those with a little Cinderella twist. In SNAPPED, Charlie Miller is a goody-two-shoes who found her Prince Charming in the form of rising football star, Slade.
(Yes, I am a total sucker for this kind of romance!)
When the flashback starts, I was totally sucked into the story. Slade was a total sweetheart despite the popular beliefs of rising sport stars being jackass in novels. It was a breath of fresh air around! Lana, Charlie’s best friend, is one of the entertaining person ever! Being Charlie Miller sounds extremely wonderful right now!
Though I must say, usually I would have fell for men like Nate Westcott, a pierced, tattooed, charismatic lawyer in the books but this time, Slade is growing on me. Actually, I am seriously liking Slade more and more. I don’t hate any characters, just that one particular friend in the same as law school as Charlie seems to get on my nerves.
Since SNAPPED ended so abruptly, and I really do mean abruptly, I am going to haul my ass to read SHADE right now! Highly recommended for readers who want a fast and content-light read! (Also, for mature readers!)
