Gossip girl meets Hollywood in this new series by Jillian Dodd

Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed of. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most coveted lunch table.  

She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.

Because really, things aren’t all that perfect.
Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam. 
Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to. 
It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect.
And deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends. 

To add to the drama, her movie star mom has a creepy stalker. 
A hot, mysterious man keeps flirting with her and telling her they should make a movie together.
And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating him would mean committing social suicide.

So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony. 

But little does she know, there's someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Book #2, KISS ME will be released Nov. 28, 2012. Also, STALK ME will be on sale for .99 the week of the tour then return to its normal price of $2.99 on Dec. 2.

So I’ll be totally honest. I held some major reservations about this book when I first started reading it, but it totally drew me in. It moves in a fast pace, and certainly doesn’t bore anyone (I don’t see how a girl like Keatyn could ever bore any reader honestly).  It provides everything a good book should: ups and downs, twists and turns, fame and fortune, and the wonderous world of high school (yay, high school!).

Now I won’t give away too much because that would be telling, but there are SO MANY FREAKING GORGEOUS BOYS in this book (hehe). Really, I couldn’t stop drooling. I do however, have a favorite. Helllloooo Cush! Not only is that an amazingly unique name, but I thought “Cushburn” was pretty hilarious! Most of the time, I only champion books that are one girl + one boy = soulmates. And I certainly don’t really promote multiple relationships, because I’m a ridiculous romantic like that. Of course it’s totally unreasonable for me to think like that, so I gave it a chance. I’ll warn you now, if you’re going to fall for a male character in this book (aside from the obvious creeper one), fall for them all because otherwise you will be disappointed. (Though I will remain on the sidelines rooting for Cush!)

While reading Stalk Me I think it’s important to keep in mind that Stalk Me is based on high school aged young adults. I had to keep reminding myself that yes, some high schoolers really are like that. I wasn’t Keatyn’s biggest fan. I share the same sentiment that most readers do, if I ever met her I’d probably have to restrain myself.  One of my favorite thing about her is her nickname, Keats (strange, I know). She’s seventeen, pretty, and trying to get a grip on her emotions. Which I totally get, we’re all there at some point if we want to admit it or not!

Stalk Me was an interesting read, it pulls you along and is a decent length! Jillian Dodd has been known to produce gripping works of romance and growing up and she’s certainly done that with Stalk Me. The premise of the story is realistic enough and is pretty refreshing to read (time to let go of the werewolves and vamps, at least for a bit!). An easy read with great editing (even pretty colored text!) that introduces you back into the world of high school, where girls are fake and guys are drool-worthy. 4 Stars to a ‘Cushing’ good time!
