"Behind Your Back" by Chelsea M. Cameron
I was provided an ARC copy of this book
"To get to him, I need to use her.
I’ll play her like a violin and have her falling in love with me before she even knows what’s happening.
It will be easy. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.
She’s just a girl.
A tool to get what I want.
When I’m done with her I won’t think twice about walking away.
At least, that was what I thought.
Until I met her."
I was super excited for this book to come out. Romance and suspense, all right up my alley. Plus, I've read some of Chelsea's books and loved them (My Favorite Mistake is still one of my fav books ever). So needless to say I NEEDED to read this book.
However, I have to say that the book didn't live up to my expectations. It was a good book, but it was just that. Good.
I had a hard time getting into the story overall and connecting to the characters. I still didn't completely at the end of the book, so that was one of the things that took the joy out of reading for me a little bit. The story had great potential and did keep my interest, but just fell flat at times. In the end, there is so much mystery surrounding Quinn/Sylas, that you just wanna know what exactly is happening with him, what his game is and where he comes from. So that is a definite plus of the book.
The parts I loved most actually weren't the interactions between Quinn/Sylas and Saige, but the interactions between him and his friends and his sister. It felt during those moments that I could actually connect with his character. And they were a fun bunch, all of them!!
So what else to say: What really had me hooked though was the ending: Oh my, the ending is the reason why I definitely wanna read the next book, because while I should've seen it coming, I just really didn't.
So this is still a 3-star-good-book-read for me and I'm definitely gonna read book number two!
