Review: Don't look back by Jennifer Armentrout

What if you had the chance to start again...but only if you promised never to look back? Samantha is popular, rich, and seemed to have it all...until the night she and her best 'frenemy' Cassie disappeared and only Sammy resurfaced, with no recollection of who she is or what happened. Sammy's a stranger in her own life - a life she no longer wants any part of. Losing her memory is a chance to start again. Then Sammy begins receiving mysterious notes warning her about that night, urging her to not look back. But she can't let it go. As she starts poking around in her past she begins to remember...and something sinister begins to surface.

My thoughts
I literally had no idea what to expect from this author not having read any of her previous books but I was keen to read this book as lots of my blogger friends went nuts when it dropped through their letter boxes.

I don't want to say too much about this book for fear of spoiling it but I will say that it was an awesome read which kept me guessing right through until the very last pages. It's nice to have a thriller mystery where you don't guess the outcome from the very start. I loved finding out more about what happened and who was involved.

A special mention has to go to the adorable Carson whom I loved entirely from the very first moment he stepped onto the page. I also loved what this book had to say about popularity and why you pick to be friends with the people you do.

All in all a really enjoyable read.


Hmm. I wasn't going to pick this book up because I was worried it would be similar to her other (romance based) books. But perhaps not? I'm still not sure.
I'm intrigued - I haven't heard of this one before but I think I'm going to be taking a closer look now.
