  • Good but...

    By Boom boom 223
    I like the story a lot but there are a lot of typos. And misused names that causes some confusion while reading, putting Jessie’s name where someone else’s name was suppose to be.
  • Starting to get repetitive

    By Stepiehra
    I have read all of the Jessie hunt series up to this point. The books are beginning to get repetitive. The misspellings and grammatical errors are getting old, and at one point the author switched Jessie’s name with the victim. I keep reading because I want to know what happens to certain characters. The author is good at keeping your attention to get you to the next book.
  • Nice

  • Good thriller but not the best in the series

    By MacLoverPro9
    This book is a page turner from start to finish. Pierce finally develops some hints of romance between the Jessie and Hernandez, while maintaining the strong personalities of the characters. Even though Jessie Hunt’s character was a little distracted throughout the whole book, the story felt strong and very well crafted for the most part. I would have liked to see more backstory with Kat’s character and some of the references to the Propov crime family felt weak, but otherwise a very solid page turner with an ending that Blake Pierce and Jessie Hunt fans will love. Can’t wait to start the next book in the series.
  • Overall good

    By JeannineW
    Needs better editing, but still a page turner.
  • Great series BUT

    By Deletedthegame23
    I’m pretty much annoyed with some minor errors in the writing. Some that didn’t make sense and makes me wonder if the author proofreads his work before publishing it. For example, when Jessie and Ryan are clearly talking about Taylor, the author uses Jessie’s name which doesn’t even make sense. I feel as if the author just wants to write and publish without reading his own work.
  • The Perfect Lie

    By ali rui
    Very disappointed. Seemed rushed to publish, lacking. Not sure I will purchase anymore of series
  • Looking forward to “The Perfect Look”

    By Niko Marie
    I enjoyed the book but it is not a favorite in the Jessie Hunt series. I felt like there were parts of the story that just did not come together or were missing. It felt like everything was on hold. Both her working and personal relationships with Ryan were off - neither were quite ready to move forward. It was good to see Jessie step out of her comfort zone and reveal feelings about her past to a few people, although that may come back to haunt her. I do look forward to The Perfect Look to find out how the story progresses.
