Gossip Girl meets Hollywood in this steamy new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.
Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She's popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most-coveted lunch table.
She's just not sure she wants it anymore.
Because, really, things aren't all that perfect.
Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam.
Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to.
It's exhausting always trying to look and act perfect.
And, deep down, she isn't sure if she has any true friends.
To add to the drama, her movie star mom has a creepy stalker.
A hot, older man flirts with her and tells her they should make a movie together.
And she's crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating him would mean committing social suicide.
So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony.
But little does she know, there's someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn't happen.
MY RATING: 2.5 STARS
Okay, I'm not with the masses on this story. I really didn't like it very much. I felt Keatyn was extremely shallow and I didn't really feel she evolved all that much throughout the story. The only time I felt she wasn't self centered was when it came to her little sisters. Another thing that irked me about Keatyn was the fact that she boy-flopped constantly. She would tell a boy she loved him, and in the next chapter she was in love with a different boy.
The book is called Stalk Me, so I assumed this would be the main focus of the story. I didn't feel it was. I felt like the stalking took a backseat to Keatyn's boy-crazy antics. I also felt the stalker was pretty predictable. I would've liked to have seen more mystery with his identity.
Overall, there wasn't much I really enjoyed about this book. Will I read the next book in this series? No. Will I ever read anything by this author again? Probably. I just didn't like the particular story.
