    Put this on your reading list! It's a quick and creepy read just begging to be read during the spookiest season. It takes place around Halloween and opens with brutal murders of college students that share an apartment. The beginning is a bit bloody, but I wouldn't describe this book as overly gory. I can imagine this being made into a horror/thriller movie. As I've come to expect from Jennifer Jaynes, she keeps you guessing until the end.Almost ...

    What a captivating read!I simply could not put this book down! The novel just flowed so well, I kept turning page after page after page. Disturbed is reminiscent of Fight Club or even Primal Fear, it simply leaves you guessing. You're so caught up in the story and desperately trying to understand what happened to Chelsea and her roomates on that Halloween night. I loved the dynamic between Chelsea and Elizabeth. The story of two best friends, Eli...

    Super quick read that certainly lives up to it's title and is just perfect for a Halloween thrill!I had this read in a matter of hours, so I'm happy to say my second experience with this author was much better than my first!

  • Dita
    This is a very lightweight, mostly unmemorable read. I spent the first 90% of the book feeling annoyed and vaguely superior for having it all figured out early.I didn’t, there was a trite surprise or two, but the dialogue was stilted and the characters were so one-dimensional, undeveloped, and formulaic that it was pretty hard to invest in any of them...
  • Emma♔☯ (Bookishfix)

The kind that keeps you guessing right until the very end, even though you get cocky and think you have it all figured out? Well, this is the book for you. If you haven't read anything by Jennifer Jaynes before, not to worry, I hadn't either but I gave her a shot and she didn't disappoint- I will definitely be keeping an eye out for ...

    Dangit. This is what I get for not writing a review immediately after finishing the book. I totally forgot about it and now it's been over 4 months since I read this. Some story details may have gotten lost along the way, but I definitely remember this being one hell of a page-turner. A trilling, chilling, mind-fuck of a book with quite a few big turns of events I didn't see coming.A psychological thriller at its best with a well fitting title.Le...

It was also a bit bloody, but nothing too disgusting which made me feel a little better.Disturbed focuses on the life of Chelsea, the only living survivor from a double murder on Halloween night. Her two college roommates were stabbed to death in their apartment, but Chelsea made it out alive and is now trying to cope with her life after the traum...

    Talented Jennifer Jaynes returns following The Stranger Inside with her latest twisty psychological thriller DISTURBED — a gritty fast-paced standalone page-turner, both chilling and emotional with a mind-blowing conclusion. “You Made Me.” Those were the words on Nov 1, 2010, the morning after Halloween.

    Caffeinated Reasons to listen to Disturbed The prologue shares a tragic event that occurred on Halloween Night five years ago. Chelsea Dutton’s college roommates were viciously stabbed to death, and Chelsea was found critically injured in the bathtub.

    I received an ARC ebook from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.Another awesome 5-star novel.DISTURBED left me, er, well, disturbed! Reading Jennifer Jaynes's novels is an absolute pleasure, and DISTURBED wasn't the exception. As I read it, I wondered who the mysterious killer was. I came up with seven different theories, then flipped a coin, asked my Magic 8 Ball, and even tried to throw darts. And one of my theories was right ... ish! Ma...

    “Get down with the sickness...”For as much as I love dark thriller movies, I find that I rarely read a dark thriller book. And I’m not really sure why. I love me some twisted and devious villains, damsels in distress, and a team of understaffed but motivated folks trying desperately to stop a monster (human or otherwise). Put that on celluloid, and I’m already in line buying a ticket. Put it in the pages of a book and I’m like…meh. It...
  • Elaine
    Disturbed is a poorly written, cheesy story about yet another survivor of a massacre in which the main character conveniently can't remember a single detail of that fateful night. Chelsea is your every day female; a weepy, cry baby with no backbone and needs a man in her life. Wah wah.Minus the poor character development, the lack of decent writing (you don't have to be Shakespeare but you do have to string a readable sentence that doesn't sound...
  • Sarah
    Jaynes has this magical method of writing which keeps you engrossed and guessing until the last line--and then you want a sequel, if for nothing but the writing. I've read other books by her and they are all equally enticing. You never know what turn these mysteries are going to take, and this was no exception. Disturbed follows a young woman after the worst night of her life, as she tries to piece together the events leading up to the brutal mur...

I was so invested in the outcome. I had absolutely no idea what...

    This was pretty darn entertaining. I knew that this book took place during Halloween so I had to move it up my TBR stack. The book starts with a bang! A cop arrives on scene and finds two college girls brutally murdered in their apartment while a 3rd girl, Chelsea, is just barely clinging to life while hiding in the bath tub. We find out that the girls had company that night, Ethan and Boyd. Boyd had to leave early to go to work. Ethan is never s...
