RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW - Snake Eyes by Melissa Pearl

Snake Eyes
By Melissa Pearl
January 30, 2015

Caitlyn Davis expects her sophomore year at UCLA to be perfect...until she walks into her dorm room to find Special Agent Zoey Kaplan of the FBI waiting for her. In that instant, she knows her idyllic year with new best friends, Nicole and Dale, along with her super hot boyfriend, Eric, is about to fall apart.

Having been forced to work with the FBI months earlier, Caity accidentally gave away her special ability to read people's emotions and know whether they were telling the truth. Now, Kaplan wants Caity to go undercover again for a secret operation that will bring her close to the sadistic Diego Mendez, a man believed to be involved in human trafficking.

Eric Shore is not a man who trusts easily. Having been burned multiple times, it’s hard for him to open up completely, but his love for Caity makes him want to try. Yet, her sudden withdrawal worries him, particularly when she chooses to spend time with her new roommate, Quella Mendez, over him. When Caity’s behavior begins to match that of her wild roommate, Eric wonders if their relationship is as strong as he believed.

As Caity struggles to maintain her relationship and do her job, she finds herself pulled further into a dangerous world that could take away everything she holds dear. Will Eric learn the truth in time to save her? Or will the man with the eyes of a snake destroy their perfect romance?

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

I received this book from Mark My Words Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

Oh man, I've followed Caity and Eric from the start and have loved their stories. Following the near-miss FBI incident, Caity, Eric, Nicole and Dale have all grown closer and grown up. Things and life have moved on and they are all happy and in a good place. Of course, you know it's too good to last but you just can't help hoping. The fun and games start when Agent Kaplan turns up to throw Caity's life into disarray once more. She knows just what to say and which heartstrings to pull on to get Caity's co-operation and after all, if that fails, there's always good old-fashioned blackmail.

Things don't go smoothly and Caity is given an ultimatum by Kaplan, who proceeds to threaten Eric's life if she doesn't comply. So, of course, she does. After all, she loves him more than anything. Things definitely get hairy from then on in but I'll leave it there and just say that you really need to read this book/series. 

One thing I will add is that up until now, the stories have been self-contained. Not this one! Holy Cliffhanger Ending, Batman! The ending to this one left me with a major book hangover and I ended up re-reading the last few chapters again the following day, just to make sure I hadn't missed anything out. I am now counting down the days until Poker Face is released.

If you want a gripping, thrilling and adrenaline-filled paranormal, contemporary romance then I suggest you look no further! Highly recommended.
