#MiniBookReview: You by Caroline Kepnes

Synopsis: Love hurts...

When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he’s instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She’s gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams.

Beck doesn’t know it yet, but she’s perfect for him, and soon she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences . . .

Review: Let's start by saying that this is not the next Gone Girl, nothing is. The publisher over hyped it so much that this ended up being just a bit of a let down. The story line dragged on and on and I kept waiting for some excitement to happen, but it really doesn't until halfway through the book. I didn't really care for any of the characters and wasn't invested in their stories. If I had to compare it to another book, I'd say it's closer to Paul Cleave's The Cleaner than it is Gone Girl.  While it wasn't my cup of tea and I didn't see anything special about it, it seems others disagree.  A sequel called Love is scheduled to be released in September of this year.
