Synopsis

Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she’s pretty sure she can get away with anything…until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette’s house. Which is why she has to disappear.

Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A’s and athletic trophies can’t make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price.

As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices.

I added this book to my TBR list awhile back and thought that it would be an interesting suspenseful book to add to this weekly meme. I haven’t read the book yet, but I do have plans to check it out in the near future. I thought that the idea of this book sounds interesting and the reviews are amazing! I can’t wait to read this book in the very near future (hopefully)! 🙂

About Jeanne Ryan

I’ve lived all over the world, raised in a family with eleven brothers and sisters. I spent my early childhood in Hawaii and the rest of my growing-up years trying to figure out a way to get back there, with stops in South Korea, Michigan and Germany along the way. Before writing fiction, I tried my hand at many things, including war game simulation and youth development research. But I decided it was much more fun to work on stories than statistics.

These days, I still love Hawaii, but have found my home under the moody skies of the Pacific Northwest.

I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book, but I have seen the movie and I absolutely loved it! Usually I never watch a movie based on a book until I’ve read it because otherwise when I go back and read it, I have a difficult time connecting with the characters. However, I took the chance and now I can’t wait to check out the book in the near future! 🙂

See No Evil by Jordan Ford
Series: Brotherhood Trilogy #1
Genre: YA, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 28, 2016
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

The first book in a trilogy about three “brothers” and the girls they must protect.

All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.

What she got was a one-way ticket to her personal nightmare.

Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.

It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.

Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.

But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?

She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.

In fact, it might just be catching up with her.

If you’re looking for a fast paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.
