Put Me Back Together by Lola Rooney
You’d Better Watch Yourself, Katie Kat
Katie Archer knows how to lie. After six years, no one really knows what happened That Night. Not even her twin sister. Choosing a college 3,000 miles away from the truth, Katie throws herself into art classes and a love affair with ice cream. Katie’s biggest rule? No boys. Ever.
But there is the little problem of Lucas Matthews. Former basketball star and total campus hottie, Lucas is the stuff girls have naughty dreams about—and he has the reputation to prove it! But that doesn’t stop liquid heat from running through Katie’s veins every time she sees him…
You’ll Never Get Away With It
Letting Lucas in is the hardest thing Katie’s ever had to do. And telling him the truth? Impossible. Then Katie starts to get threatening texts and she realizes Lucas is the least of her problems. Her past has caught up with her and it wants to settle the score.
I’m Coming For You
Now Katie must decide whether she wants to fight for her life, or leave everything—including Lucas—behind her forever…
This was fantastic! Heartbreaking and fantastic!
Lately not many books have made me get that emotional, but this one made me cry! And it’s not because Katie and Lucas had a roller coaster relationship (because they didn’t! Yay!), but because of how horrible Katie’s past was, and the huge weight it put onto her shoulders.
The relationship is cute and Lucas was a sweetheart, but it wasn’t what made this book so brilliant. The element of suspense and the secrecy is what I really enjoyed. As mentioned before, Katie’s past is horrific, and is revealed very slowly and then all at once. I don’t know if I am just bad at predicting things, but I did not expect the secret to be what it was. Nor did I guess the other things that were revealed.
If you are looking for a happy, light, fun read, this isn’t it. However, that definitely doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t read it! Just don’t read it expecting it to be all lovely bubbly.
My only criticism is the cover. I know it doesn’t make a difference to the quality of the book but I just don’t think it’s representative of the story. It doesn’t draw me in or make me want to read it. And that is not what I imagined Lucas to look like!!!
I now have so much love for Lola Rooney! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you for coming up with such an awful (in a good way) secret, thank you for writing it down for us to read! I would 100% recommend this book!
