Publisher's summary

Willow Lamott’s best friend is a convicted killer, and no one in the small town of Gilt Hollow will let her forget it. Over four long years, she’s tried to fade into the background - but none of that matters when Ashton Keller comes striding into school, fresh out of juvie and fueled by revenge. The moment their eyes meet, Willow no longer feels invisible. Drawn to the vulnerability behind Ashton’s mask of rage, she sinks deeper into his sinister world and begins to question whether he’s a villain, a savior, or both.  

Ashton thought he wanted vengeance until Willow Lamott stepped back into his life. Now he longs to clear his name and become the person she sees in him. But the closer they get to uncovering the truth, the darker the secrets become, and Ashton wonders if his return to Gilt Hollow will destroy everyone he loves.

Characters and plot are too simple,very amateurish

I'm not a touch critic, I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and rarely given less than 3 stars.

Characters are not layered enough, lack complexity (flat, two dimensional) and don't have enough identifiable traits. Even main characters don’t stay in character and their actions are implausible. The small town sheriff has the power to send a 14-year old kid to prison for 4 years who was only guilty of bulling, (bad but counseling and supervision would have been appropriate) oh, and his parents disown him entirely for this, ridiculous. Then when he comes back to the same small town he is blamed for everything, to the point of being hauled into the police station in hand cuffs every time something bad happens, even without evidence when he was nowhere around.

Emotions expressed (even for 18 year olds) don’t match the problem or action. Conversations and actions are over-dramatized as filler for the weak plot.

The mystery is uninteresting, numerous killer kids hiding crimes for each other, and the small town sheriff hiding murder and drugs. To top it off a shallow love story, even for a young teen read.
Narration was good for the main characters, but terrible for middle aged moms, giving them a blond bimbo voice. And the older woman, made to sound like a cackling witch.

I couldn’t wait for this book to get over.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
