Thank you to Hachette Book Group for the chance to review this book.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: Eve Wilson’s face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped to the online realm, where she could choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities. When her test subjects begin turning up dead as a result of apparent suicides, she doesn’t know where to turn.

Homicide detective Noah Webster is one of the few people who believe the victims are connected murders. Eve becomes Noah’s online guide and realizes that the handsome detective may have secret scars as painful as her own. As Eve and Noah chase a killer who is always one step ahead of them, together they try to overcome the tragedies of their pasts and learn to trust again, but they soon discover that danger is much closer than they think.

This book was hard to put down and was full of twists and turns.  I had strong suspicions of who the main killer was early on but I was still surprised by some of the other twists the author threw in.  I loved Eve’s character and you have to wonder at her horrible luck of being a victim of not one murderer, not two murderers but three.  I mean really, can your luck get any worse?  And despite all of that horror she still remained spunky and dedicated to trying to help those around her.  Noah’s character was also wonderful and he burrowed his way further into my heart after I read what happened to his wife and child.  The chemistry between the two was sizzling hot.  This book also introduced a great cast of supporting characters that left the door open to several sequels.  I loved Noah’s partner, Jack, who at first seemed like a superficial, handsome flake but the reader is given small glimpses that hint at something deeper.  I also think Eve’s friend Dan and a co-worker of Noah’s may end up having a story together.  If they do I will definitely be picking up those books.  Talk about a book sucking you into the story and not letting go until the end.
