    5++++++++starsI was lucky enough to be given a hard copy ARC of Gun Shy ( I've also pre-ordered one) from a book signing and trust me when I say it was certainly worth the wait.Love and Cassie's story is a lot of thing, beautiful, dark, depressing, brutal, violent and revengeful.So many things happen in Gun Creek you will not be wanting or able to put this book down.A few times I thought I had it all worked out but the twists thrown in made me se...

    You would think that when you bury someone deep enough in the ground, you’d be able to keep them hidden. Oh god what have I just read???!!!This is NOT a dark romance. This is a mystery- psychological thriller story and it is packed with secrets and twists.This is a story about lost dreams and hopes.A story about 8 stolen years full of despair and sadness.This is a story about a simple boy who simply loves a girl, Leo: But I know Cassie. I love...
  • Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)
    Great cover on this one. Good representation of the female lead. Good compoition and title work as well.So this book was amazeballs. I kind of want to just leave it at that since I am not sure anything I write will do this one justice. I LOVED it. Every page. Every chapter. Every sentence. Every word from beginning to end was pure twisted magic. Phenomenally well written. The pace was perfect. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. ...

Then you NEED to read this book!!I went into this thinking I had an idea what it would be like. I'm at the end of this book realizing I knew NOTHING!! Because this author set me up. In the best way.

    3 Very Dark StarsIt’s been awhile since I’ve read a Lili St. Germain book and from what I remember is that the books are very dramatic, dark and somewhat twisted. I’m into these books, I crave these books, but I think Lili St. Germain may have taken me out of my comfort zone a little too much.I see the raving reviews on this book and I get it. I understand the overall idea and persona of the book, but it’s just not my cuppa.That’s right...

    **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**"You begin to realize that the darkness you've been given is not a burden, but a gift. "First of all, I want to point out that even though this book has some romantic elements, it's NOT a romance novel. I love Lili's books so I was really excited to read Gun Shy. I went in blind and without any expectations, because I didn't really know what to expect. I enjoy when books are unpredictable and has m...

    Spine tingling, chilling, hair raising and Ooooo so good! Loved the twisted mind of Lili St. Germain. She has the uncanny ability to take you places you'd never think to go. One hell of a read and damn sure recommended!

    “Beware the dark pool at the bottom of our hearts. In its icy, black depths dwell strange and twisted creatures it is best not to disturb.”I think that wraps up everything into a nice package but alas not possible so how do you write a review for a book that leaves you in a position not able to find the words, not yesterday when I finished it, not now while I’m writing my review and neither tomorrow or next week if I had to put down how thi...

    Where do I start? Can I just say 1-click and devour? I need a few more words. Ok let me try...I’ve read previous books by this author and loved them. However this has become my new favourite of hers. Lily knows how to get under her readers skin. I devoured this book in a day. I couldn’t get enough of it. If your looking for a brilliantly written dark psychological thriller then I highly recommend this book. I rarely do re-reads but this is on...
  • Carla Bulian
    PQP! No meio do livro, confirmei minha suposição dark ao extremo, mas até 80% da leitura me senti angustiada, sem brincadeira.Estou sinceramente de boca aberta com esse livro. A autora foi magnífica!Uma história não convencional, dark demais.Mas valeu cada palavra!ADOREI!

    “Going mad doesn’t happen all at once. It’s a process.”3.5 Stars (rounded down to 3 for now)This is dark, twisted, and quite f*cked up. This is not a romance story but love plays an important part in it. This story explores the different kinds of love from the young sweet one to the toxic and possessive one all the way to the disturbing one. It shows the extents one will go through just for someone they love be it the right or wrong one. ...
  • Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    Wow. I went into this thinking it was going to be a dark romance set against the backdrop of a mystery and that is not what I got at all. What I found was a dark and winding thriller filled with lies, betrayal and twisted desires. This book snatched my attention from the very first sentence and I was unable to put it down. It’s one of those stories that leaves you thinking long after it’s done, and questioning your own morals when you alterna...

I am a girl with a darkness inside me. Carefully placed. Cleverly concealed. A darkness that could devour you.
  • Nicole
    A true roller coaster of emotion, this story kept me at the edge, breathless anticipating of what will happen till the final page. The author did a remarkable job creating a very suspenseful plot, full of mystery and twists. Seriously I was focusing on one thing and then another one was happening the same time. It was very rich of emotions with a mysterious dark vibe all over the story, it was like seeing a movie which is a huge plus for me.Now ...
  • Beatrix
    This is probably the most twisted book I’ve read this year. And one of my favorites.I’d say the blurb is misleading, it portrays the book as a small-town mystery about a girl’s disappearance, but is so much more. At its core, this is a very bleak, gloomy story about people stuck in a little nowhere town and the fact that – if you’re fed evil, evil you’ll become.Gun Creed, Nevada is the setting of the novel, it happens during winter, a...

    Shut. The. Front. Door. What have I just read?? Guys, this book is utterly unbelievable! I’m shocked – in the very best way. I’m just wandering around, thinking about how a book so damn perfect can exist. Lili St. Germain is a new to me author, but from now, she has a new stalker in me, because her writing is just simply excellent. She gets under your skin in no time and she will leave a mark on your soul. And you know what? You won’t eve...
  • Bexxy (Desperately Seeking HEA's Blog)
    I'm not a religious person. But I need to confess. Forgive me reader, for I have sinned. I listened to a book. It took from the light and it gave to the darkness. It spoke of terrible things that happened to good and bad people. And I couldn't stop listening until I had, had my fill of every single word spoken. Gun Shy is devastatingly good. Unputdownable. Mind Blowing. It's so bad but so damn good. It's torturous to the mind and I feel like a te...

    What the f**k was that??? That you get, when you don't carefully read blurb or what the book is about :)It's not dark, but it is psychological thriller. Not that I regret reading it. From the start I was spaced out from real world, pace was quick, so many stories were developing and several times it was over the top, which usually would cause to lose my interest in story, but this time this didn't happen.
