To get to him, I need to use her.
I’ll play her like a violin and have her falling in love with me before she even knows what’s happening.
It will be easy. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.
She’s just a girl.
A tool to get what I want.
When I’m done with her I won’t think twice about walking away.
At least, that was what I thought.
Until I met her.

Warning: slight rant to follow
I've loved and I mean LOVED Chelsea's Fall and Rise series. So when I heard she's coming out with a new book and I read the blurb for Behind to Back, I didn't even have to think twice jumping at the chance to read it. Then I started reading it...and I swear I kept checking the cover to make sure I was reading a book by the same author.

This book puts Kristen Ashley's descriptiveness to shame. I have never read so much mundane and unnecessary details in a book before.

Quinn Brand is a successful businessman, working in finance and helping rich people with their investments. Or maybe not? Maybe his real name is Sylas, he's a simple boy who enjoys beer and hamburgers and hanging out with his cat, instead of hiding his tattooed body under expensive suits. He pretends to be someone else. He wears his facade and the only way to move on with the plan is to get under her skin. If only she knew that he's using her to get to her fa

DNF at 57%

Meandering prose.
Stilted dialogue.
Flat characters.
Too much inner monologue.
Too many details that doesn't add anything to the overall plot.

I was bored. Just bored. I'm sure there's a point to all these but it's too much telling and not enough showing. I'm sorry but I couldn't find the strength to continue. So DNF.

THIS. BOOK. I was not expecting that.


This is my first read from Chelsea Cameron and now I'm wondering why. Behind Your Back is such a fast read, which is perfect for readers who wanna get lost in a romantic and suspenseful tale.

I have to admit that I was 30% in and I still wasn't aware of what was happening. Our main character, Quinn, is so mysterious. I was not used to reading from a male's perspective but in here, it surprisingly worked very well for me. I love that I can feel his struggles

Financial adviser, Quinn Brand(pseudonym) is a Robin Hood of sorts. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Namely himself - Sylas Carter, and his band of brothers. All of their lives ruined by circumstances all out of their control. Coming together to form a brotherhood, with one end result on the horizon. They move around a lot. Never staying too long in one place. Aiding the rich in getting richer. While helping himself to their millions. Plotting, scheming, lies and deceit, rou

Too repetitive. I've read works of this author before and I genuinely enjoyed it but all her characters are all stock. There are barely distinguishing features in her characters in comparison to characters in her other books. It took me quite a while to finish this because of the dull pace too. The plot only picks up at like... the very last paragraph. Making this into a series is unnecessary, because if she just shortened the useless and dull rambling, she could have created something great. Th ...more

CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK 2 - I think I may love Sylas

Behind Your Back is a departure from Chelsea’s usual writing style, showcasing her talent for suspense with this twisted tale.

In all honesty Behind Your Back is very difficult to sum up. The plot is multi-layered. Told from Quinn’s perspective, the reader is left to put the pieces of the puzzle together for themselves as the plot unfolds. Who is Quinn? Who is Sylas? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?

A pesar de que fue bastante predecible, no dejó de ser bueno. Además, Chelsea es genial y le tengo muchas expectativas al siguiente :D
It was pretty good.

La mia recensione sul blog

“Bugie del nostro amore” è il primo romanzo della duologia Behind your back, un new adult fuori dai soliti schemi e molto diverso dai due romanzi di Chelsea M. Cameron precedentemente pubblicati da HarperCollins Italia. Diciamo che del classico new adult questo libro ha solo l'età dei protagonisti: 24 anni lui e 20 lei, per il resto è un contemporary romance con alcuni interessanti elementi suspense.

Fingere di essere Quinn Brand è facile, ormai. Sono anni che Quinn cambia identità e gira il mondo. È abituato a tutto, o quasi.
Una parte del lavoro che svolge in una società d'investimento è pulita e serve a coprire le operazioni illegali di cui si occupa con un gruppo di amici fidati dal passato difficile. Dall'esterno sembra un uomo benestante, che sguazza nel lusso tra una Ferrari e una BMW, un abito tre pezzi firmato e l'altro, ed è così che conoscerà lei, Saige Juliette Beaumont, belli

DNF at 55%.

I spent this book treading water, and frankly, my legs are tired, so I'm getting out of the pool.

Around 33% I said that I thought things were happening. I was wrong. They weren't happening.

Perhaps I couldn't get into this because the main character is hugely manipulative. And I didn't know anything else redeeming about him that could have me forgive his sins...whatever they are. Here, Sylas/Quinn/whatever-the-fuck-he's-calling-himself-today is going after Saige for a job and he remin

Behind Your Back es el primer libro de la nueva serie de Chelsea M. Cameron y tiene como protagonistas a Saige y Quim.
Impresionante, adictivo, magnifico y unico, esas son las mejores palabras que he encontrado para describir la maravillosa historia que ha creado Chelsea M. Cameron.
Puede que despues de leer Behind Your Back pienses que la trama no es nada nuevo pero lo que realmente me impresiono de este libro no fue la trama en si misma, sino la forma en la que esta escrita, que hace que no pued

It was so bad! Reading this book I felt nothing. Idk the characters were annoying and most of the story was based on sex... >_<

Prevedibile. Noioso. Ripetitivo.
La Cameron non mi è mai piaciuta, eppure quando uscì la trama di Behind your back ero rimasta incuriosita, un po' di mistero e suspance con il romance, chissà - ho pensato - magari non viene fuori una cazzata come My favourite mistake. Come mi sbagliavo!

If I had to describe this book in one word, it would definitely be “intriguing.” I kind of expected this by reading the blurb but I find that books sometimes deviate from their blurbs. This was not the case with Behind Your Back. The author gives us little bits of information throughout the story but there is always the constant mystery of the stalker there to keep the reader wondering what is really going on. We are never given the whole picture and then at the end we get the unexpected shockin ...more

I really tried, really I did. I made it to 47% before chucking this read to my DNF shelf. I WANTED this to be a good read. I thought the idea was brilliant, it had all the right moving parts. I thought I would drink up the main character Sylas/Quinn. Tattooed, rich, mysterious, came with his own team of equally as good-looking hustlers. The plot had suspense and a beautiful, mysterious heroine. Unfortunately the overly descriptive writing style bored me to death. It was very awkward constantly h ...more
I thought this was a murder mystery! Ugh. I never thought it would be filled with hidden agendas and steamy sex scenes. Whew!

Well, I can't wait to read the next installment.

I was provided an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

I was super excited for this book to come out. Romance and suspense, all right up my alley. Plus, I've read some of Chelsea's books and loved them (My Favorite Mistake is still one of my fav books ever). So needless to say I NEEDED to read this book.

However, I have to say that the book didn't live up to my expectations. It was a good book, but it was just that.

I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

This book garnered more negative reviews than anticipated, I am sure. Me, I kind of liked it. I liked the intent of the story. I mean, if you read the blurb, it was good. It was intriguing, even. It's a story you wouldn't want to pass up.

The problem was in the execution. I think there were too many fillers that you almost couldn't wait until the actual story started.
A little birdie told me...
2.5 stars. It might have been three if I had rated it yesterday, though.

So much nothing happens in this book. Keeping the reader guessing only works if there are reveals along the way. There are bits, but they're too tiny to validate why Silas/Quinn and friends are perpetrating their rouse. These bits were barely enough to keep my interest and really didn't do much to validate anyone's motives at all.

The first third of the book is so slow. We learn so little that I wonder why it was so drawn ou

Behind You Back is a story filled with passion, betrayal, and lots of secrets. Brand is part of a circle of men working together to help him in ruining a man. Unfortunately that includes him getting involved with the man's daughter named Quinn. What he doesn't count on is falling for her. He will have to decide if he can leave her behind and live without her. That will depend on if she could possibly forgive him for the lies and the hurt she suffers with all that happens.

This story was so involved and detailed. The characters are living two different lives. The twists this book took kept me hooked. I seriously did not see the ending coming! I am in serious need of the second book!

Quinn (Sylas) is a character that is very closed off about his past, even with those closest to him. He takes his job very seriously and is determined to let nothing stand in his way. Saige is a rebel who tries to do everything to irritate her parents. She wants to l

Yes, there's always a first for everything. I am kind of scared this "not finishing a book" will become a habit, I hope to hell not. I was at 65% or so, and I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.
