My Review
Lust Garden is a very twisted book but in a good way. You get pulled into the sick and entertaining world of movie stars, models, lots of druggies and a very horrible killer. Gianna is a character you hate at first then as you read more about her life and what she is going through you start to feel sorry for her. You can't help but to keep turning the page to see what happens next. Rachyl is a girl I hated from the get go. She is one of the most using characters you will ever read about. She is on a path of self destruction and doesn't care who she takes with her. Vance is Gianna's boyfriend and a model. Got to say he is a better model than a boyfriend. The killer is one of the sickest and twisted villain you will read about. The rest of the characters make a nice addition to this gripping book.

This book had me going through a mixture of feelings. I actually gasp at how the killer treats his victims. Yes I know he's a killer but it's still a horrible way he goes about it. As you read his story you do get an insight on what made him the way he is. Gianna,Vance, Rachyl also keep you glued to the book to see what else they are going to do next. So many secrets and betrayal goes on it's the way you may think a stars life really is. This book is not a light read and has some very serious context so don't go into it thinking it will be fairytale. The story stayed in my mind and I still sit and think wow crazy doesn't begin to cover these nut jobs. Great book and I really enjoyed it. If you are looking for a twisted horrifying read pick this one up. There is lots of twist and several big shocks you don't see coming.

  1. love thrillers--and this one sounds exciting

  2. This would be a nice change from the paranormal angel-centered books I've been reading as of late, and a thriller might be just what I need to get motivated again!
