Wicked Games by Sean Olin

WICKED GAMES by Sean Olin is the first book in a thriller series, and a great pick for anybody who enjoyed the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard. It is set in a tiny beach town, Dream Point, where Carter and Lilah are the perfect couple…or so it seems. Their relationship has been rocky for a while, but when Carter falls for Jules one night, he begins to second-guess his four years spent with Lilah, who has had a difficult past. When Lilah pieces together what happened between Jules and Carter, she intends for Jules to pay the price. But will the punishment fit the crime, or will Lilah’s judgement be blurred by her anger?
WICKED GAMES is a shocking thriller that kept me turning the pages (...and jumping at every shadow, noise, and movement) all night long. Readers should most definitely expect to be kept at the edge of their seats while reading! One downfall is that the beginning of the story is paced very slowly, and I found myself wanting to put it down. I would, however, urge readers not to give up, because after the first few chapters, the author picked up the pace and the action began! This book truly has it all: romance, action, mystery, and thrills, and I can’t wait for more in the series. I would recommend it for ages 14/15 and up due to violent and sexual content throughout the book.
