Leo has a meth addict mum who lives in a double wide on state land, to say he had a troubled upbringing would be an understatement. Leo has built himself his own 'place' so his girlfriend Cass can stay with him anytime, he built it out of scrap materials. When his makeshift sink spits out some gross looking water he goes to investigate thinking his younger brothers had killed an animal and chucked it in the well...............it wasn't an animal.

I was lucky enough to be given a hard copy ARC of Gun Shy ( I've also pre-ordered one) from a book signing and trust me when I say it was certainly worth the wait.

Love and Cassie's story is a lot of thing, beautiful, dark, depressing, brutal, violent and revengeful.

So many things happen in Gun Creek you will not be wanting or able to put this book down.
A few times I thought I had it all worked out but the twists thrown in made me second guess myself.
It is definitely one of my top r

Do you love a great mystery? A story full of suspense? A book that will take you on the thrill ride of the year? Then you NEED to read this book!!

I went into this thinking I had an idea what it would be like. I'm at the end of this book realizing I knew NOTHING!! Because this author set me up. In the best way. I thought I had it all figured out. How it would be in the beginning, middle and end. Nope, I was so freaking wrong.

3 Very Dark Stars

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a Lili St. Germain book and from what I remember is that the books are very dramatic, dark and somewhat twisted. I’m into these books, I crave these books, but I think Lili St. Germain may have taken me out of my comfort zone a little too much.

I see the raving reviews on this book and I get it. I understand the overall idea and persona of the book, but it’s just not my cuppa.

That’s right, it’s me not you kind of book and that’s okay.

"You begin to realize that the darkness you've been given is not a burden, but a gift. "

First of all, I want to point out that even though this book has some romantic elements, it's NOT a romance novel. I love Lili's books so I was really excited to read Gun Shy. I went in blind and without any expectations, because I didn't really know what to expect. I enjoy when books are unpredictable and has me guessing throughout the book. Gun Shy definitely

Spine tingling, chilling, hair raising and Ooooo so good! Loved the twisted mind of Lili St. Germain. She has the uncanny ability to take you places you'd never think to go. One hell of a read and damn sure recommended!

“Beware the dark pool at the bottom of our hearts. In its icy, black depths dwell strange and twisted creatures it is best not to disturb.”

I think that wraps up everything into a nice package but alas not possible so how do you write a review for a book that leaves you in a position not able to find the words, not yesterday when I finished it, not now while I’m writing my review and neither tomorrow or next week if I had to put down how this book made me feel? Near impossible but I will try.

PQP! No meio do livro, confirmei minha suposição dark ao extremo, mas até 80% da leitura me senti angustiada, sem brincadeira.
Estou sinceramente de boca aberta com esse livro. A autora foi magnífica!
Uma história não convencional, dark demais.
Mas valeu cada palavra!

I’ve read previous books by this author and loved them. However this has become my new favourite of hers. Lily knows how to get under her readers skin. I devoured this book in a day. I couldn’t get enough of it.

If your looking for a brilliantly written dark psychological thriller then I highly recommend this book. I rarely do re-reads but this is one I’ll certainly be re reading. Looking forward to rea

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Wow. I went into this thinking it was going to be a dark romance set against the backdrop of a mystery and that is not what I got at all. What I found was a dark and winding thriller filled with lies, betrayal and twisted desires. This book snatched my attention from the very first sentence and I was unable to put it down. It’s one of those stories that leaves you thinking long after it’s done, and questioning your own morals when you alternately feel sympathy for the devil and disgust for peopl

“Going mad doesn’t happen all at once. It’s a process.”

3.5 Stars (rounded down to 3 for now)

This is dark, twisted, and quite f*cked up. This is not a romance story but love plays an important part in it. This story explores the different kinds of love from the young sweet one to the toxic and possessive one all the way to the disturbing one. It shows the extents one will go through just for someone they love be it the right or wrong one. I’d give it a 4 for the writing, the complexity of the cha

Gun Shy will consume you with it's darkness. It consumed me. It's going to take you down and drown you into this bottomless well of craziness.
I often wondered if the insane situations Cassie and Leo, the main characters, are subjected to, would eventually stop... I guess you're going to find out by yourself. Or better yet, my advice is to grab along your bo

A true roller coaster of emotion, this story kept me at the edge, breathless anticipating of what will happen till the final page.



The author did a remarkable job creating a very suspenseful plot, full of mystery and twists. Seriously I was focusing on one thing and then another one was happening the same time. It was very rich of emotions with a mysterious dark vibe all over the story, it was like seeing a movie which is a huge plus for me.

Gun Shy by Lili Saint Germain is... it's... Where do I even start?
It's so damn good. And twisted. And shocking. And sad.

Shut. The. Front. Door. What have I just read?? Guys, this book is utterly unbelievable! I’m shocked – in the very best way. I’m just wandering around, thinking about how a book so damn perfect can exist. Lili St. Germain is a new to me author, but from now, she has a new stalker in me, because her writing is just simply excellent. She gets under your skin in no time and she will leave a mark on your soul. And you know what? You won’t even mind it.

What. Did. I. Just. Read ?

I'm still getting my head around this book, still trying to figure out the bits that snuck up on me when I thought I had the plot figured out only to be blindsided over and over.

A psychological thriller that you could say is unpredictable.



I was instantly pulled into the plot with the images of hearts and butterflies and the love of two teenagers with a dream of one day getting out of their small town despite living in a grubby trailer, a consuming love that gave Cassi
