I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.
My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.
All because of a stalker.
I’m at a boarding school where I have to lie about who I am.
I can’t see my family.
I’m tutoring a hottie god that tortures me with his smile.
The most popular girl already hates me.
But there’s this boy.
This hot, sweet, sexy boy.
So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.
My Thoughts: The second episode of the The Keatyn Chronicles, Kiss Me, finds Keatyn at boarding school under the name of Keatyn Moore, her alias. After the creepy creeper Vincent tried to abduct her, she had to change everything about her life and go into hiding, because there wasn't enough evidence to arrest him. Vincent is persistent, dangerous, and still actively trying to find out where Keatyn is.....thus the drama continues. I wanted to share this paragraph from Jillian Dodd from the beginning of Kiss Me, so that you understand what the Keatyn Chronicles is about. "The Keatyn Chroicles are similar to a television series. The books do not stand alone and this book begins the same night book one ends. There is no recap of the story..." At the end of this paragraph a brief description is given of the last scene in Stalk Me, just like you would see at the beginning of a television show.
Kiss Me chronicles a month in Keatyn's life, and boy is it ever an exciting month, with more happening during that time frame that most teenagers would see in a year. She is still dealing with her feelings/attraction for Aiden, and agrees to tutor him in French. Theirs is a complicated relationship to say the least. Even though she says that Dawson and her are not dating, what occurs between them during this month is really a lot more and they are obviously crazy about each other. I was team Cush in book one, but I am definitely team Dawson in book two. Who I'll be in book three, remains to be seen. Normally, I wouldn't like a girl who hops from boy to boy, but with the way Jillian Dodd writes Keatyn's character, it just works, and I couldn't help but just love her. There are some serious and scary moments in Kiss Me, as well as some really fun moments, and some really hot steamy moments as well.
I absolutely loved this book, and I love this series. I cannot wait for Date Me to see what happens next. The Keatyn Chronicles really is like a television show. The synopsis of Stalk Me begins with "Gossip Girl Meets Hollywood." I think if you go into this series keeping in mind, that that is what it is like...a fictional television series.......then you can truly appreciate it and have fun right along with Keatyn. I know I have had a blast. Enjoy it? Yes I most certainly did. Recommend it? Yes I most certainly would.
