I started Where Good Girls Go to Die last night before I went to bed. That probably wasn’t the best idea, because I completely devoured this book from beginning to end! I thought maybe it was short, because of how fast I was moving through it. I even looked on Amazon to see how many pages were in the book. 340 pages! Not short at all! That’s good writing, my friends! This is the only thing I have ever read by this author, but it won’t be for long! I LOVE her writing style, and I can guarantee t

Where Good Girls Go To Die has everything I wanted in a book and even more!I was hooked from the first page,seriously this story was addictive! Holly Renee delivers a beautiful, second chance romance.


I loved how the story developed,there are parts of their past and we get to know what happened between them.Parker and Liv's story is beautiful,passionate,steamy,intense and full of angst.I could feel everything and I was aching for both characters.

This is a new author for me, I thought heck why not try someone new for a change so I took the chance, and wow it blew me away.

This is a book on 'Livy' and Parker whom fall in love with each other at the age of 16 to then have their hearts broken, years later to let time heal old wounds. This book is raw and the characters are nothing but beautifully damaged. There's though something so strong and powerful about the story and the words that are written here,
4 Stars!

Where Good Girls Go to Die was a story that started off as an angst lovers dream. There was intrigue and suspense as the reader is left to wonder what exactly happened between these two. It was also heartbreaking at times and I got second-hand hurt as I watched them circle around each other. As I got to know their story in detail though it seemed like the main problem should have been "bigger" or something. I would have also loved an epilogue or just a bit more at the end since this stor
2.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: I was looking for some major angst when I decided to pick this book up, and sadly I just didn't get it. I always struggle with the couples that have known each other forever and then we are expected to believe they fell in love with no development into those stronger feelings being provided, and that happens here. On the other hand -- I absolutely love the stories that have the characters grow with each other from children to adults and we experience all the things tha

Where Good Girls Go To Die was a fun and sexy ride about heartbreak and second chances. This story was fast paced and it only made me want to read and not put it down. I enjoyed Livy and Parker's history and undeniable chemistry. They've know each other since they were kids. Livy has been in love with Parker since she can remember and vice versa but their young love doesn't last. The reason for their break up was a little predictable and has been done before numerous times but it didn't ruin my ...more

What an unexpected fun ride.

I literally read this cover to cover in one sitting. It was one of those books I just didn't want to put down.

This is my first book from this author and I promise you it won't be my last. This book goes from past to present, and if I've said it once I've said it twice, sometimes, those aren't my favorite stories because the past can become a bore.

From the moment I read the first chapter of this story, I fell in love with Liv. Then Parker entered the scene and I was a goner.

Liv is the younger sister of Parker's best friend. She and Parker have been in love since they were teenagers, but some things happen, forcing them apart. Four years later, Fate draws them back together at the most crucial time of Parker's life. And after all the time that they spent apart, the attraction between them is stronger and the fire burns hotter. Brighter. W

"But love is a word that is too weak and used too often to describe what I feel for you. It's relentless and desperate, and every time you smile I fall harder and harder."

The story switches from the present to the past, almost four and a half years ago. We find out that Parker is Livy's brother, Brandon's, best friend and Livy has been crushing on him for a long time. The feeling is reciprocal and the two even had a relationship before some trouble from Parker's past causes Livy to run.

This is my first read by this author and I'll certainly be reading more of hers in the future.

I read this in one sitting. Parker is Livs brothers best friend. They have strong feelings for each other but then Liv is told something that makes her run and selfs destruct. When her brother & Parker see her in a place they don't expect to her brother takes her home.

Liv has seen and felt true and utter heartbreak. She doesn't want to feel that again. Can they find happiness?

I loved this book SO MUCH!!! It was smokin Hot. It was Laugh Out Loud funny. It was heartbreaking. It felt REAL. The first few sentences sucked me in and I didn't put this book down until the end.

Ugh! I wanted more dammit!!! I hate books with no epilogues!
I'm not usually a fan of books with cheating in them but for some reason this one didn't bother me much. lol

I hope we get more books on the others. Loved Brandon and Staci:))

Since the moment I found this one, I was intrigued. But while reading reviews I discovered a few things that made me doubt. So I asked the right questions and was answered with a totally different answer that what I discovered while reading. Still it wouldn't let me go. So it came out yesterday and I stated reading after work and couldn't stop.

I loved almost everything about it. A lot of it was just a big misunderstanding and would have been fixed with an open conversation, but where would the f

"There comes a time in everyone’s life when they realize that the things they thought they wanted are never going to happen."

Where Good Girls Go to Die by Author Holly Renee is a second chance love story that I LOVED!

"I would take being bad with Parker James a million times over being good with anyone else."

Parker and Livyy were always infatuated with one another. They grew up together and then grew apart separately. Now, the are back in each other's lives...for better or worse.

I absolutely Loved this and devoured it in one sitting. Friends to secret lovers/second chance/brothers best friend. Parker is best friends with Livy's brother Mason and they all grew up together. As they get older Livy and Parker could no longer could deny their feeling for one an other and had a short lived secret romance. Things happen and misunderstandings sent Livy away. Four years later and a private event brought them all together again. And boy was it a surprise for all. Very well writte ...more

I'll start this review by saying I've never read a book by Holly Renee prior to this one. To say that she won me over is an understatement. I sat down with this book, just wanting to get into it so I could finish it the next day. I had just finished another book and wasn't looking to fall into another.

Well, I should have picked a different book. I devoured this book in one sitting--only stopping to update social media because I couldn't not tell people about

This was a quick read about a forbidden romance. I enjoyed the writing quite a lot and the author did a good job portraying her characters' emotions.
Liv has loved Parker since forever but there has always been something that keeps them apart. Parker is now as unavailable as ever and their romance seems to be now forbidden. Can they overcome everything that keeps them from being happy and together?
While I enjoyed the premise of the story I found myself not deeply invested in the characters. May

This is the year of me reading books by new-to-me authors and Holly Renee makes it to the list. When Imani from Enamored Reads told me about this book, the first thing that caught my attention was the cover, the red tones it has and how simple it is; the second thing was the title and I knew I had to read this. I'm so glad I gave this book and author a chance because I'm definitely reading more from this author!

WOW!!! Hot damn!!! I devoured this book in no time. I couldn't stop reading once I started. And even though it played out how I thought, I enjoyed this book so much!!

Where Good Girls Go To Die is my first book by Holly, but I can tell you, it most definitely will not be my last. This book starts off with bang and ends with huge fireworks. And in between is so much angst, love and passion to set it on fire.

Livy and Parker were highschool sweethearts and everything was going well until something happened and pulled them apart. A few years later they reconnect and old feelings start to surface. Will they be able to get it right this time?? If you're a fan of friends to lovers and second chance romance you NEED to check this book out. It was just perfect!

“I didn't want him to love me tenderly. I wanted him to bury his hands in my hair and get lost in me. I wanted him to bruise my lips and stain my skin with his need. I wanted him to dig his fingers into my soul and make love to the storm inside me. I wanted him to remind me how to breathe by taking my breath away, to love me recklessly. I didn't need his hesitant touch or guarded desire. What I needed was to feel his fire and know that I wasn't burning alone.” 1 likes
