This book is absolutely amazing. I could not stop reading it!
Spoiler I totally thought that it was Phoebe behind everything since she was so adamant about Maeve not looking at the revenge forums. I was very surprised to find out it was Emma (her older sister). Then I found out it was Owen!?!? By the last chapter, I was sure that the plot twists were over so I was not prepared to find that out. I wonder if anyone else will find out that it was Owen that continued the messages.

This book has a lot of great twists and turns.

Please check Trigger warnings before reading!! This book is just as good, if not better than the previous one! I was so hooked and truly shocked at the end. My jaw literally dropped. I would really recommend these.

I loved the first book, and this one was no different. As with Book One, McManus gives just enough information through the different POVs for the reader to figure out the culprit themselves- and she does so in a way that only makes the big reveal more exciting rather than predictable. There's always an extra twist or another detail that comes to light in the climax and resolution, too. The way the plot moved from a simple game of Truth or Dare to an actually serious and tense situation was really good. I liked the characters in this one as well (though I did take points off because I'm not a fan of romance, that's just personal preference) and how they each developed, especially Maeve. I'm still trying to figure out who's on the cover, though...
