No matter where you are, they’ll find you, and put you in “The GAME”. Candice Laguna’s life is being systematically dismantled, by an unknown force, for areason she can’t imagine. But she is about to become the unwilling star of a reality game competition the likes of which has never been broadcast to the world. Just when things get darkest, a mysterious man snatches her from the grips of doom. He is a man who is not what he seems, and not who he says. He has no name and his motivation to help Candice is not what it seems to be. But his selfishness has good intentions, he just wants to know who he is and where he came from. And getting to the man orchestrating this reality game is the only way to find the truth. THE GAME is a mystery/thriller with an unpredictable paranormal twist. It has action and adventure and plays up the everyday exploitation of reality television obsession gone wrong.

My Thoughts:
Do you like thrilling reads that keep you on your toes? Do you like reading creepy stories that give you goosebumps? Then you should definitely pick up The Game. The only time that I ever felt creeped out by a story was when I read Deadly Little Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is definitely a book that will make my favorites list. You know when you read a book and you really enjoyed it and you really don’t know what to say about it? That’s where I’m at. I finished it a couple days ago, and I don’t know what to say other than I loved it and you should definitely pick it up!!!!

Have you ever felt a hunger so intense it blinds you from everything else in your life? For Claire Moore, her hunger for justice is her coping mechanism, her reason for getting out of bed each morning, struggling to face her day to day life alone after her father and brother were violently taken from her.Other nineteen year olds are at parties and studying at University, living the fun naïve life of a teenager, but in the world of Claire, there was nothing left for her other than the desperate hunger for justice.Unfortunately it’s this hunger that’s driven everyone who cares for her away, unable to watch her place herself in danger any longer and that includes her teenage love, Talon Baker.But true love never really dies and after stumbling upon information to the identity of their murderers, together Talon and Claire are hunted until they can figure out the clues her father left for them.Through her hunger for justice, Claire grows by relinquishing control of her fight and allowing others to love her, even though the fear of losing them is too excruciating bear. (from Goodreads)

First Lines:“Loneliness is one of those things you seem to get used to, especially when everyone you love is dead and the rest treat you like a leper.”
My Thoughts:
I absolutely LOVED this book! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series, which I will this summer! Claire was probably my favorite character ever! (I posted some awesome Claire-esque quotes in the memorable quotes section) This book was so entertaining and fun to read!
Claire is driven and I even liked Talon. But I like guys who have an asshole quality to them. ;P Kerri did an awesome job at building the plot and the characters. The book had a little bit of everything, murder, suspense, romance, etc.
All-in-all, I think people who are into contemporary, suspense, mystery stories should definitely check this series out!
Book Links:

Memorable Quotes:
“Painting a smile across her face she said in a sickly sweet tone “Talon Baker. And all this time I thought you didn’t like me.””
“Claire sighed heavily before he finished his crude quip, they wouldn’t get anywhere at this rate. “Okay, pookie. What can I do for you?””
“Claire was so tempted to say something witty like, ‘pardon me, pookie. You need my help?’ only the desperation in his voice and the fact he was asking for her help, made her reign in her bitchiness.”
