Review: Deceived by Julie Anne Lindsey

19347911Goodreads Description:

When Elle’s father, a single parent and a big shot in corporate insurance, moves her to yet another boarding school for senior year, Elle is disgusted when nothing changes. Her night terrors don’t go away, and, soon, despite her father’s caring calls and visits, Elle starts to believe she’s losing her mind. She knows she’s being followed; a ribbon is tied around her doorknob, and there are those cigarette butts that keep turning up on the doormat, in violation of a strict smoking ban on campus. Then there’s Bryan, an intriguing boy Elle meets at a flea market and later finds out is a student at her school. Yet on campus, he pretends he doesn’t recognize her – until the day he divulges just how much danger she’s in. In her search for an answer to all the madness, Elle unravels the truth about her dad’s real identity, why someone has lied to her all her life, and the terrifying truth that she may be the only one who can save her from the one who’s following her now

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

My Review: It took me longer than expected to actually get into the book. I believe that was because for a while it felt like I was reading off of a list of the main character, Elle’s, whereabouts. But 1/3 into the book I was interested enough to keep going. Half way through the book I was hooked. The relationship between Elle and Brian seemed too fast to me. And I didn’t really see the difference in how he acted at the beginning to how the high school students acted. Anyways, even though the relationship was rushed, I loved how he protected Elle. And the there are HUGE plot twists in this book.. I was impressed on how well the plot was laid out. I feel like the author could’ve done soooo much better with the main character’s relationship. But other than that it was a great book!

I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
