"#75. Sleep with the forbidden"
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Wise Wolf Books for an honest review.
Becca Thompson's best friend, Rose McCain, has died and she is deep in her grief. Everything changes when Rose's older brother, Ben, comes back home from college asking questions about his sister. Becca wants nothing to do with Ben or his prying since he deserted his sister. When Ben starts to question what really happened to his sister the night she died and how it may have not been an accident, Becca agrees to help him. Becca only wants to clear the name of her bestfriend. But after finding so many secrets hidden from her, she may realize the lies are less scarier than the truth she so desperately wants.
The book is told from Becca's viewpoint, first person.
At first I was pretty interested in the book. The first part was good, but unfortunately, further reading on, I had to stop multiple times. It just seemed like too much. I'm someone who gets into books, and this, it just didn't do it for me. This book reminds me of most scary movies. The ones where the girl hears a noise in the basement and goes down there in the pitch black dark to see what it is, or the chick that is running away from a killer and trips on the absolutely nothingness that's in front of her and somehow is still alive at the end. I think the book could've been better. Want some more mystery, just look below for suggestions.
