Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Whew! My legs are still shaking from this ride. What an incredible book! Let my preface this by saying that when I started this I was in the mood for a sappy love story. And Don’t Look Back is no where near the sappy love story category, but as soon as I started it, I was IN IT!
This was one of those times that I stayed up way to late, had to read every little chance that I got, because I just had to KNOW! I haven’t been addicted to a story like that in a while. It was so refreshing.
The story starts out with Samantha being found and having no memory of who she is or what she was doing. Flash forward a few scenes and we find out that she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie. Cassie, is still missing.
You get to join Samantha is the ride to figure out where Cassie is. Is she alive or dead. Could Samantha have killed her? It doesn’t seem like such a far fetched idea when you find out what type of people Samantha and Cassie are/were…. they are the epitome of mean girls.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I did have several theories on what went down with Cassie. And one of them was right! But I never knew for certain until everything was revealed. Armentrout did a awesome job keeping you guessing. In the past when I’ve read books like this, there was almost too much information given, and as a reader I would figure it out before the MC. It’s not always a bad thing when that happens, but I loved not knowing until Samantha did.
I’ve read several of Armentrout’s books under her pseudonym J. Lynn and LOVED them. I’m fast becoming a huge fan. I’m going to have to read all of her books! Do yourself a favor! Pick this one up!
