I was provided with an ARC/Review Copy for review.

Self Destruct was a nice surprise. I wasn't sure what to expect going in and then in the beginning I was a bit put off with the way it didn't give me that "real" feeling. The dialogue seemed off and the characters didn't seem to me like they were the ages they were supposed to be. It turned around though and I loved the rest of it. I was surprised several times by the twists and turns that happened throughout the book.

I really enjoyed the story a lot. I will be jumping right into the next one in the series as soon as possible!

TITLE~ Destroy Me (Destroy #2)

I liked the first book in the Destroy Series, Self Destruct, but this one was amazing! I loved every minute of it! I had a little trouble getting into the first book, but this one? No way! It was awesome from the beginning!

The characters were much more developed in this one and we got to see more of all the characters from Self Destruct, plus get a lot more in depth with Reed & Kate. We also got to know quite a bit more about Jeremy and Cameron. Everyone had a part in this book and it was fantastic! It was suspenseful and exciting and kept me guessing all the way through!

I can't wait to see who gets the next book! Toni or Jeremy & Cameron?? Can't wait! I will definitely be getting that bad boy as soon as it's written!
