Review: SNAPPED (The Snapped Series #1) by Ketley Allison

22438058

Summary:

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.

Review: 

Hello, it’s Alex again with another review! I was given an e-book copy in exchange of an honest review, so here we go.

This is the first novella out of a serial that narrates 9 weeks of Charlie Miller’s perfect goes to hell life. I had no idea what a serial was, so if you are illiterate like me, it’s a publishing format by which a single large work is presented in different installments.  This is the first part of this serial and you can definitely sense that because this is like a warm-up to what this whole serial will be.

Charlotte Miller is a smart, lovely girl who is dating the hot and ultra-famous football player Jason “Slade” Sladerman. Even though he has always been popular in their hometown, everything starts getting crazy when Slade, Charlie and her best friend, Lara, move to New York City together. He’s now starting his football career while Charlie studies her ass off.

We begin our journey in week 9 when Charlie is being interrogated for murder, we don’t know who died, who did it or why her best friend would testify Charlie is the culprit. That made hyperaware of what was going on and when we start by week 1 I’m left being suspicious of everyone. This first novella is about week 1 and a bit of week 2, so really we are only getting to know the characters and how the plot is going to build up.

If it weren’t for the prologue you would think Charlie has the perfect life; the hot boyfriend, her “we will always be together” best friend, new NYC friends among other things. But no, we start this journey with Charlie, knowing this is not a happy story and we probably shouldn’t trust any of them which is really sad because when they are not doing suspicious things they are all really adorable.

“It’s always been you and me, Brain,” Lara said, poking her head into the kitchen. “I’m with you ’til the end.”

“I don’t need you in a dress,” he said, pulling delicately on one of the straps. “Or in lipstick. Or tanned or impeccable or styled. You know what I need?” He stopped, waiting for me to meet his eyes again. When I did, he finished with, “You in sweats and your hair a mess. Your face all rosy because I just made you laugh−or something else.”

I mean, COME ON, who doesn’t want to hear that? But since we have no idea of what’s going on I feel lost and confused. We also meet Nate, a sexy tattooed lawyer that I can’t wait to know more of and apparently neither does Charlie.

“But his stare was intense, the bright green of his eyes almost encouraging me to revisit the conversation from Friday. And I found myself wanting to rebel against anything he expected.”

SNAPPED is only the beginning of what I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing series, I can’t wait to continue and know every detail of this story. I really recommend this book if you’re looking for an easy, entertaining and different kind of read. But I warn you it’s very addicting and it will leave you wondering what is going to happen, who you should trust and how is all going to crumble down.
