Pretty Little Killer by AJ Merlin

Just like its predecessor, Pretty Little Killer is a whole vibe and one I’ve been eagerly awaiting. All those things I loved about Pretty Little Tease, they’re back for book 2 but this one’s hotter still. Following the winter break, Blair returns to St Augustine but the situation has shifted slightly. Juniper and Oliver trying to play nice, Rook works on convincing her to take

Pretty Little Tease by AJ Merlin

While still a serial killer romance Pretty Little Tease is a shift from AJ Merlin’s previous books. Despite the FMC, Blair, naming her cam-watching alter-ego finalistgirl she’s nowhere near as much of a final girl as most of Merlin’s other FMCs. Although there’s killing in the backdrop of the story and the two MMCs are killers it takes a while for this to become apparent

Vicious by AJ Merlin

I’ll admit that I found the first chapter of Vicious confusing. I had to go back and re-read it before chapter 2 to make sure I was reading what I thought I read. And yes, I had. Quinn, our heroine, started the story in the midst of multiple murders. Something’s gone on with her therapist and she needs to run. Fast forward five years and

Brutal by AJ Merlin

A  campground at night, a lecherous creep, a final girl, and a serial killer. Brutal sounds like the perfect recipe for an AJ Merlin novel.

It’s the start of the new semester and Mercy is back in Winter Grove, facing the same dilemmas she left behind over winter break, primarily where does she stand with Dorian and his pack? The answer to that seemed pretty clear to me, even from the first can but it took Mercy weeks and some very explicit statements to figure it out although that’s understandable

Depraved by AJ Merlin

I’ll admit that this book didn’t captivate me in the first few chapters. It’s a slow build with lots of scene setting, and I just wanted to jump straight into AJ Merlin‘s brand of action. You know, the sexy, dirty and downright lascivious action. It’s definitely worth persevering with this read because in chapter 6 the story explodes in the most delectable way. Depraved is

We Keep Secrets by AJ Merlin

When I read We Tell Lies I said that the book was an epic tease. AJ Merlin continues that theme in the first chapter of We Keep Secrets when Kayn appears in Parker’s bathroom. You think Parker’s about to get some, then Kayn backs off. He moves forward and then retreats again. The tension got so high that I was practically ready to re-write the

We Tell Lies by AJ Merlin

I really enjoyed AJ Merlin’s Playing With Knives and I had high hopes for We Tell Lies. Unfortunately, while this book was a good read, it didn’t quite live up to the awesomeness of its predecessor. I think there’s a very good reason for that. We Tell Lies is the story of Parker and her return to the small town where she grew up. The
