Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Notice Me - Rebecca Turley I have to be perfectly honest here... for at least half of the book, I was worried. There were glowing reviews and I just was not seeing it. I figured out who 'Notice Me' was from the very beginning, it seemed transparent to me although odd at moments. The ginormous twists and turns won me over, although some of those I could see a mile away.

Sadly, one of the final twists... I must warn you know, if there is even a possibility you want to continue the series after this- DO NOT read the blurb for book #2, Embrace Me. Somewhere around the 80% mark, I was already planning on reading an ARC of Embrace Me next- I read the blurb. *Sigh* Despite some of the *bang* behind the revelation being dampened, the ending really redeemed the book. Another warning, while still being a 'Happy for Now' that leads you to believe a 'Happily Ever After' is a distinct probability in future books- but it's still a bit cliffy. It's a reaction of, 'I really want to know what happened next' rather than a 'No! That's not fair!' - if that makes any sense at all.

Once I rolled all my thoughts into a bundle, I felt 4 solid, emotional ♥'s was the right rating. Think of a British version of the show Dynasty rolled into a book. Drama oozes from it's pages but still left me rooting for the near Romeo and Juliet lovers to end up together forever this time and my hand itched to slap and scratch some of the faces of the odious villains. I'm absolutely excited that I get to immediately crack open book #2 and learn their fate...

I received an eBook of Notice Me from Rebecca Turley via CBL Tours in exchange for an honest review.
