Stephenee – Nerd Girl Steph’s ARC Review
***THIS ARC BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
The story started out quick and continued with that pace throughout the entire story. I was amazed at how quickly time passed while I was reading it and couldn’t believe that it seemed like I barely started and was already finished. A LOT of things happened throughout the plot, and I enjoyed them all. I really like being surprised with twists and turns throughout the story, I couldn’t figure out what was going to be thrown at me next and that is a really big plus for me. There was lots of twists and turns, ups & downs, hot and steamy sex scenes and of course the family betrayal. You just couldn’t decide what was going to happen next and I was honestly hooked from beginning to end. The characters were very well developed and the dialogue flowed smoothly and naturally. The storyline is really energetic and contains a snappy and realistic dialog between everyone.
You will find yourself hoping for friends like Becca, Aiden, Toni, Katie, Jeremy and Cameron. They are so instantly likable that you feel like you have always known them. Becca and Aiden are both trying to heal and move forward, and need each other. Plain and simple. You will want to scream as their friends and family betray them and you will be just as hooked, as I was and I completed it within a day!
It is most definitely worth the read, so add this to your TBR list and pick it up soon!! Just a warning though, once you pick it up and start reading it you may not want to stop so make sure you have a clear schedule for the day!! I loved the ending and the fact that it doesn’t have to be the ending, that you can see more things to come in this series and I hope to see spin-offs on the friends, as they were awesome! I love this group of friends and want them for my own!
