I almost gave this 4 stars for sentimental reasons. I do like Kimberly Derting and will continue reading her books-I'm just a bit worried about the direction the series is taking, and I was frustrated with how little BFF and BF interaction we got in this book. So, 3 stars it is, and Kimberly Derting, if you can hear me, please don't do what I think you're going to do in the next book!

(view spoiler)

On the bright side, this was still a page-turner. I still love the idea of the books-the body finder stuff is cool. I just miss some of the characterization I saw in the first two books, especially the first. The romance with the actual boyfriend felt halfhearted, like what Derting really wanted to do was get back to vulnerable bad boy Rafe. Do I like vulnerable bad boy Rafe? Yeah, but I love Jay, and he was missing for way too much of this book. Even in the scenes when he was there.

Here's hoping I'm totally wrong in my predictions and the next book surprises me. I would like that.
