Genres: Thriller, Young Adult
Viola’s always been that girl from thatfamily, so a scholarship to a prestigious private school in Florida was supposed to be her ticket out of poverty and into a brand-new life. But Viola’s secrets have followed her. Her relationship with the intelligent and gorgeous Riel should have been the salvation she needed—he understands her troubled past better than anyone. But then weird things start to happen.
Frightening messages.
Missing personal items.
The unsettling feeling that she’s being watched.
Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.

My Musings :

I had so many reactions while reading this book. I actually didn't feel that I was reading about teens because Viola and Riel are both so mature in their actions and character. They are one of my favourite pairs right now. I really enjoyed watching them fall for each other.

The beginning was good with the normal school introduction and the parade of characters. As soon as Viola's dilemma had me feeling for her. But I knew she was going to get caught and I thought Riel would be so angry. But the way he handled the situation was a welcome surprise and so understanding! I have to thank the author for scripting such a great set of protagonists! Not much angst or drama. That's one of the reasons I really loved the book. Another is Mar! She is simply adorable and well, I don't have anything much to add about her. When you read the book, anyone would understand my point.

One point I was surprised on that I thought Levi would be seen more in action but he was kept at a periphery level, especially at the end. Another point was the identity of the stalker. I never even thought that person would be it! I had so many wild guesses. At the end I had to laugh at my narrow mind. The language used also was easy to read and added to the overall enjoyment.

I hope to read more of the author's books. I really enjoyed her version of a YA couple!

I received a copy for reviewing purposes which doesn't impact my views in any way.

My one line review : Good romance + a bit of mystery = a great fast read!

My rating : 5/5

My reread factor : 4/5
