Book Blitz & Reviews: Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

Series: 2/2 (Dangerous Girls is the first in the thriller series)

Pages: 336 Pages

Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK

Summary:

Three teens venture into the abandoned Monroe estate one night; hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding; the other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder?

Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece together the story of how they got there-a story of jealousy, twisted passion, and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful of faces…

 Book Review: 

For those of you that are familiar with Abigail Haas, you will know that she has a tendency to play with your head and make you feel as though you need to constantly sleep with both eyes open. Dangerous Boys is perfect and just as creepy as its predecessor.

The story follow three protagonists- Chloe, Ethan and Oliver who are bound together by love, jealously and blood ties. The story is told through Chloe’s POV and takes place within the past and present. From contextual knowledge we know that Chloe and one of the boys have made it out of a fatal fire, except one. This drives the narrative throughout the story and leaves you with so many questions…Who died? What happened? And Why?

I don’t want to give too much away because this is one of those books where you need to experience everything without any spoilers. But I will say that if you have read Dangerous Girls, Abigail does not go very far from this book as she delivers another psychological thriller that focuses on the twisted, naive mind of the teenage girl.

The worst thing is that I really didn’t have high expectations for Dangerous Boys as I loved Dangerous Girls so much and did not believe that Haas could live up to the bar she set so high for herself. However, I was wrong and for that I would like to publicly apologise to the mastermind that is Mrs. Abigail Haas.

I would definitely recommend this book to fans of suspense thrillers.
