Dangerous Boys

Dangerous Boys

by Abigail Haas

Genre: YA Mystery, YA Thriller
Published: August 14th, 2014
by Simon and Schuster




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…


Our lives are made up of choices. Big ones, small ones, strung together by the thin air of good intentions; a line of dominoes, ready to fall. They blur into an endless stream, leading seamlessly to the next question, the next decision – yes, no, no, yes. The line of dominoes falling one by one. Click, click, click, they tumble faster until you can only see the two that really mattered:

The beginning, and this, the end.
Oliver, and Ethan, and I.

This was absolutely wonderful, but I think I prefer Dangerous Girls over this –Β  probably out of more personal reasons than anything else.

This being said, Dangerous Boys still definitely gives Dangerous Girls a run for its money in so many aspects; and I still believe that Abigail Haas is one of the best YA mystery authors I’ve encountered in quite a long time.

Dangerous Boys follows Chloe and two brothers – Ethan and Oliver. One afternoon, the three of them enter an abandoned building. Hours later, a fire takes over the estate, and only Chloe and one of the brothers come out of the estate alive. The question is: which brother survived and what happened inside the estate? Was the fire a horrible accident? Or was it something more?

Abigail Haas really impressed me – yet again – with her mystery writing ability. She was able to place clues and red herrings in exactly the right spots. Just when you think you figured it all out, another clue gets dropped, and your theory is dispersed.Β She makes you flip page after page without allowing you to take a break. And when the final reveal came?

What I love about Haas’ books is that they aren’t mysteries or thrillers. They’re psychological thrillers, and darn good ones at that. Abigail Haas really dips into the minds of her characters and is able to see how they think and react. This allows her to create complex psychology that has me constantly baffled. From the depression of Chloe’s mom to the way View Spoiler », Haas really shows us how one little spark can lead to a whole set of problems; and it’s fascinating.

As a protagonist, Chloe was absolutely relatable and fascinating. She’s definitely realistically flawed, and you can’t help but empathize for her. She’s been waiting to leave the small suburban town she lives in for as long as she can remember, but when her depressed mother has an emotional breakdown at work and gets fired, her dreams of going to college are thrown out the window. You can really see how – psychologically – this truly crushes her, and you can truly feel for her.

The side characters were wonderful as well. From Ethan’s sweet do-good attitude to Oliver and his dangerous and slightly cocky personality View Spoiler » to Chloe’s mom and the story of her depression, each side character felt real to me and served the story well.

All in all, if you read and liked Dangerous Girls, Abigail Haas will not disappoint with Dangerous Boys. Haas is definitely on my auto-buy list now, and I’d highly recommend her books to mystery fans.



  1. YES GIRL!

    So glad you loved this one (: I’m so excited to read it, Dangerous Girls simply knocked my socks off. Abigail Haas writes great dark, convoluted and psychologically complex stories. I’m glad that this one was no different and you felt captured by the story. I also love her use of red herrings, they’re hidden right in plain sight but I never guess at them. Oh, and another crazy ending!? Eeek. I’m sure I won’t guess it again and I’ll be dying with shock ahaha.

    Abigail’s psychology is what makes her stories stand out frpm other YA mysteries in my view. I haven’t yet read another author who delves so deep into the inner workings of a character’s mind and showcases them in a way that seems so raw.

    I’m glad you enjoyed all of the stories. I feel like they all are developed well and I’m glad the side characters are very much involved. The backstory with Chloe’s Mom must have also added to the emotional level of this story.

    Lovely review Zoe! You made me even more excited to read Dangerous Boys, which was something I never even thought was possible.

    1. Thank you Larissa! πŸ˜€ Dangerous Girls knocked my socks off as well – I absolutely loved it! And if you loved Dangerous Girls, I can pretty much almost guarantee you’ll love this as well. Her psychology really do set her apart, don’t they? xD

      Thank you! <3

  2. Gah, I’m so jealous you have this one!! I loved Dangerous Girls, so I’m glad to see that you really liked this one too. I love a great psychological thriller; they really make you think and wonder.

    1. Haha…thanks Lauren! πŸ˜‰ If you loved Dangerous Girls, I can almost guarantee you’ll love this one as well! πŸ˜€ Psychological thrillers are awesome – they really do make you think!

  3. Netgalley rejected my request so I’ll just be sobbing in the corner here… I’m glad this was a good companion to Dangerous Girls! Don’t mind me, I’ll just be anxiously looking forward to the release date! Great review, Zoe <3

  4. I really think I need to read both of these, they just sound so interesting and I love all the reviews I have seen for them so far.

    Lovely review!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. YES, YOU DO! πŸ˜€ They’re both absolutely wonderful in their own right. Thank you! <3 You too! πŸ˜€

  5. I am going to read Dangerous Girls this week before I jump into the arc of this that I requested πŸ˜€ I love psychological books. Those kinds literally blow my mind!! I like to think out of the box and notice every subtle detail to figure out how the book will end and etc. Good to know that the main ans side characters were wonderful. I think it is really important for a book to have both types of character easy to like or relate to. So excited to read this! Great review, Zoey! πŸ˜€

    1. YES! You’re going to love it Abby! <3 I can't wait to see what you think. πŸ™‚ Glad to see that you're intrigued. Thank you!

    1. I can almost guarantee this will blow your mind as well Keertana! It’s such a great novel. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    Wohoo, this sounds little a ride! You know, it’s kinda because of you that I bought Dangerous Girls (you seemed so excited in your review!!) so, if I like that book, I will listen carefully to your opinion in the future (even more than I do know) πŸ˜‰ Fabulous review, Zoe, and I’m glad the characters are ones you can connect with and understand!

    1. IT IS! πŸ˜€
      Haha! Yeah! I’m so glad to hear you got Dangerous Girls, and I can’t wait to hear what you think! Thank you lovely! <3

  7. Oh, I have to read this, and Dangerous Girls. I don’t think I knew what to expect, but the fact that they’re psychological thrillers makes me want them even more! And I absolutely adore when a book has awesome side characters, so I am pretty sure you’ve just sold me on these books! Great review πŸ™‚

    1. They are both really, really intriguing Shannon! πŸ˜€ I hope you end up enjoying them as much as I did. Thank you! <3

  8. I must read this. I’ve yet to try any Haas novels but I pretty much love reading psychological thrillers and being mindblown that I can’t simply wait to read this. I’d read Dangerous Girls first and then this one. Brilliant review, Zoe! πŸ™‚

    1. YOU NEED TO TRY A HAAS NOVEL SARAH! You’re missing out – haha! πŸ˜€ I look forward to seeing what you think of them both. πŸ™‚ Thank you! <3

  9. YES! So glad you liked this one, Zoe. Abigail Haas is so good at writing psychological thrillers. I knew exactly what was going on in this book, but it still blew me away. Her writing is amazing and I hope she continues to write these psychological thrillers.
    What I loved the most about this one has to be how subtly and slowly you watch the characters grow from kids-next-door to kids-who-are-messed-up! Loved the progression because it was so fascinating.
    I agree with you that Dangerous Girls was better though, especially because I enjoyed the court room proceedings.
    Great review, Zoe! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it as much as I did Nick! πŸ˜€ I hope she writes some more thrillers as well! xD

      I completely agree! It really shows what an influence the people you hang out with truly have on you, and how one little thing can lead to another, you know?

      I liked Dangerous Girls a bit more because of more selfish / personal reasons (the court room proceedings too – since I’m into law)!, but this one definitely had it’s merits. πŸ™‚

      Thank you!

  10. Both sound incredible, but I’m thinking this one is probably better read first, usually the originals are always the better read. I love a well written thriller and both sounds fantastic. Brilliant review Zoe, I’m sold <3

    1. I’d recommend reading Dangerous Girls first, but it really doesn’t matter because they’re completely separate stories. They’re both fantastic in their own rights. Thanks Kelly – I look forward to seeing what you think! πŸ˜€

  11. THAT COVER THOUGH *gasp* Mine. It must be mine!

    But how do you not know which brother survives? Is the story before the fire then, because I assumed it was after. But if it was after then you’d know who survives because you’d see them. My simple brain is confused haha.

    ANYWAY. Psychological thriller alert! It’s been a while (see: too long) since I’ve read one of those. This sounds every bit the awesome, intense story it sets out to be.

    1. Haha! πŸ˜€

      I wondered that at first too! πŸ˜€ It’s told both before and after the fire; but in the instances after the fire, the brothers are never referred to by name; so it just says “the surviving brother” and “the dead brother.” xD

      It’s definitely intense + awesome!

  12. *stews in quiet jealous* OH I SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK. I AM POSSIBLY GETTING A REVIEW COPY BUT UNTIL THEN I’M JUST OVER HERE. COVETING YOUR BOOK. XD Loved the review, also…and I’m a bit sad it’s not as good as Dangerous Girls, but it’d be seriously hard to top that. I’m just happy it’s GOOD. And on your auto-buy list?! YAY!! Me too. x) This author is just so epically talented.

    1. I hope you get a review copy Cait! πŸ™‚ I didn’t like it quite as much as Dangerous Girls – mostly for more selfish reasons (I like learning about law, so I really enjoyed Dangerous Girls on a more personal aspect there), but this one seriously gives Dangerous Girls a run for its money. And isn’t she? πŸ˜€

  13. I honestly didn’t even know this one exists!! I just started hearing about Dangerous Girls recently, which is making me want to read it SO BADLY!! Now that I have this one on my radar too, that will be even more of a push to read DG. Glad you enjoyed this one, despite liking DG a bit more. πŸ™‚

  14. So i’ve been lazy and haven’t read Dangerous Girls yet..*walks away with hands raised slowly* CHILL OUT, OKAY?” It’s on the review pile! But i recently got an arc of this one so it’s my next read πŸ™‚ I’ve heard this author is amazing at writing mysteries and i’ve been in the mood for one so i’m super excited to read this one! I’ve heard good things!

    1. Lily – you need to read both of them! They’re awesome! πŸ˜€ To say she is wonderful at writing mysteries would almost be an understatement! Hope you enjoy it! πŸ˜€

  15. Abigail Haas is totally on my radar and anytime a book is a good psychological thriller…I automatically want and will read it. I only skimmed your review because this is one I will most certainly read and once I do…I will stalk your blog to get into the nitty-gritty. *wink*

  16. Once again you have a book I didn’t know about but it’s so amazing to see that you were able to easily relate with the characters and to see they were that awesome. I confess that I’m intrigues now. Great review!

    1. The characters and the mystery were definitely the highlights of the book. πŸ™‚ Glad you’re intrigued! πŸ˜€

  17. Oooohhhhh, I really need to read Dangerous Girls! NEED! There’s a lot of you who say nothing but praises for this author. I’m glad you liked this one! I added it on my TBR already even though I haven’t read Dangerous Girls yet πŸ™‚

  18. Ahhh I am so glad to see your review for this one and because I am who I am, I couldn’t resist the temptation to click on the spoilers (although they weren’t major so it’s all good) and boy do I want to know which of the brothers made it.

    I love thrillers but nothing beats a psychological thriller! SOON. Soon I will get my hands on a copy of both the books and devour them!

    Fantastic review, Zoe!!! πŸ™‚

  19. I’m so glad that this gave Dangerous Girls a fair run for its money! Unfortunately I haven’t read Dangerous Girls yet, but I definitely think I need to get onto it VERY soon – it sounds too good not to! Thank for your excellent review, Zoe. πŸ™‚

    1. You NEED to read both of these Ebony! πŸ˜€ They’re absolutely wonderful. πŸ™‚ Thank you for the lovely comment.

  20. WOW this sounds truly amazing!!! I still haven’t read Dangerous Girls but I have heard so much about it. I’m so happy to hear that Dangerous Boys is so good. I like the sound of characters and the plot itself seems really good. But that writing is something I need to experience. I love it when I cannot stop readng the book. Awesome review, Zoe πŸ™‚

    1. THEY ARE BOTH SO AMAZING TANJA! πŸ˜€ The characters and mystery – and the writing – are all so wonderful; and I can’t wait to see what you think of them. Thank you!

  21. I’m so sorry but I had to skim your review, glad to hear there are great secondary characters and it’s as good as Dangerous Girls though! I’ll be reading this very soon and I’m so excited, can’t wait to discuss it with you πŸ˜€

    1. Haha – no worries Jeann! I completely understand. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to hear what you think when you finish.

  22. Wheeee, so glad to read your review and rating. I’m not sure if I prefer it over Dangerous Girls… both are awesome and so different in their own rights. That one, we see a monster, and this one, we see the becoming of a monster… if that makes sense πŸ˜› Although I guess in certain ways that one is the same as well… in any case, I’m rambling! I do agree that Haas is just one of those people in the mystery thriller genre that you SHOULD definitely look out for. It’s like every book she touches turns into pages and pages of epic mind-blowing awesomeness.

    1. They definitely do have their own rights. πŸ˜€ It definitely makes sense – and I completely agree, they’re both intriguing.

      “Epic mind-blowing awesomeness” –> that’s definitely one way to put it!

  23. She’s on my auto-buy list now too, and I haven’t even read Dangerous Girls yet (this was my first one) bought it straight after though because, ohhhhh damn. This is my kind of psychological thriller, and seriously, I could not put it down. I just AHHHH. I knew it was coming halfway through but still, it managed to shock me, haha, and I had to just put it down and stare at it for a while because holy book hangover. Is it bad if I say I kind of liked Oliver and Chloe together? I’m not weird, honest, it’s just so freaking fascinating but what I loved most though, is that you SEE the psychology happening and it was bang on. As soon as it’s out IT’S MINE. Glad you enjoyed it (even if it didn’t beat Dangerous Girls for you- I’m hoping to start it soon, so I’m seriously looking forward to seeing if it beats this one for me.) πŸ™‚

    1. Bahaha! This comment just made my day. I absolutely love it. πŸ˜€ Holy bookhangover is definitely right!

      No…I don’t think it’s wrong to like Oliver and Chloe together. I think both boys definitely brought out different sides of Chloe, and, ultimitely, it’s up to you to see which side you like better.

      Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it too. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Dangerous Girls soon!

  24. I’ve heard of Abigail Haas but have yet to read anything of hers yet. This sounds really intriguing — I’m adding it to my list!! Awesome review!!

    1. Thank you Tricia. πŸ™‚ She’s one of my favorite authors as far as YA mysteries and thrillers go, so I’m glad to hear you’re going to give her work a try. πŸ™‚

  25. So, I think GR has recommended Dangerous Girls to me before, but I just took a glance at the cover and thought it might be some cheesy contemp. or maybe a light revenge story — or really, maybe something else entirely? I don’t remember. Still, I didn’t give the synopsis a chance to win me over. But I’m so, so glad I read this review! You’ve opened my eyes, Zoe! Ever since the letdown of (Don’t You) Forget About Me earlier this summer, I’ve been searching for a psychological thriller that’ll keep me guessing but ultimately make sense too. I think I could really enjoy Haas’ books. Are they companions? Can they be read in any order? As you can tell, I’m eager to dive right in! Thank you for spreading the word, Zoe! Lovely review!

    1. MARLENE – YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE BOTH OF THESE! I read (Don’t You) Forget About Me and liked it well enough, but both of these definitely knock that out of the ballpark in terms of the actual mystery.

      They are companions, and they can definitely be read in any order. πŸ™‚ (Although I’d recommend reading Dangerous Girls first. xD)

      Thank you for being willing to possibly give this a try! πŸ™‚

  26. I actually just read the first book a couple of weeks ago and it was a very well written mystery novel! I def. want to give this one a try – my co blogger also loved it and it sounds like another winner! I was wary at first how a sequel would do but it sounds like she did great with it. Psychological thrillers are the best!! Great review, hun!

    1. I think we actually read it at about the same time! It is definitely another winner! πŸ˜‰ I was a bit skeptical at first too, but this is definitely the real deal. I so agree! πŸ˜€ Thanks Giselle! πŸ™‚

  27. This is almost as good as Dangerous Girls? I’d be excited for it if you said it was 1/20 as good as Dangerous Girls. Before reading Abigail Haas, I had yet to find a good psychological thriller and was about to give up on the genre, but now I have a go-to author and restored faith. πŸ™‚ I’m especially excited to meet Chloe – as a soon-to-be high school junior, I love reading about characters’ college problems.

    1. Haha! Some reviews I’ve been reading have even said they like this better than Dangerous Girls, which is really exciting!

      I was the same way. The only mystery I’d read that stood out to me as being extraordinary was The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin, but that didn’t really have the psychological aspect to it that Haas’ books do.

      I look forward to seeing what you think Emily! πŸ™‚

    1. IT IS MELISSA! πŸ˜€ I hope you check Haas’ books out whenever you’re in a mood for a mystery / something psychological because they are fantastic.

  28. I love books that make your mind go asdfghjkl, they almost always get a high rating for me just because they can make you think, you know? You’re not just going through the motions of turning a page. I’ll definitely have to check these out, flawed characters are the best kind πŸ™‚ Awesome review :3

    1. I am absolutely the same way Alise! πŸ˜€ I’m such a sucker for books like that. And yes! I <3 (realistically) flawed characters too! Thank you!

  29. I haven’t heard of this author, but the premise of this book sounds fantastic! I haven’t read a good YA psychological thriller I don’t think, and I love that this book (and the one before) was so suspenseful. I’m so glad I read your review – I hope to check out this author’s work soon!


      If you’re looking for a good YA psychological thriller, I can almost promise you that this will not disappoint you. πŸ™‚ Thank you! Let me know if you end up reading it, okay? πŸ™‚

  30. Wohoo! I’m reading Dangerous Girls now! πŸ˜€ So excited for the mind fuck it (and Dangerous Boys) will bring me! Chloe sounds fantastic, and I definitely hope Ethan’s the one who lives because he sounds like a nice guy. ;D

    1. YEAH! I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR THAT AIMEE! <3 I can't wait to hear what you'll think of both of them. And haha! I really want to spoil it for you, but I'm trying my hardest to keep my lips sealed! πŸ˜‰

  31. I’ve not read any of Abigail Haas’ novels :O (do I deserve to be clobbered?) But from what I’ve been hearing, it’s nothing but praise for her work :O Have to get round to this one soon πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad you loved this one Zoe, and that you were mind-blown ;D Fantastic review! πŸ™‚

    1. EMILY! SHAME ON YOU! Go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done!

      Haha…just kidding. πŸ˜‰ But really! Both of Haas’ books are fantastic, and you’re really missing out! Definitely looking forward to seeing what you think when / if you decide to get a copy of it. Thank you! <3

  32. OH. EM. GEE.

    You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to read this. Now I want to even more!! I was so sad when NG denied me. After reading Dangerous Girls and absolutely loving the psychological mind games, I can’t wait to see what this one has to offer.

    1. “OH. EM. GEE.” is absolutely right Kat! πŸ˜‰

      And a very long time I’m guessing? πŸ˜‰ And aw…I’m so sorry NG declined you. πŸ™ *hugs* I sympathize with you! If you loved Dangerous Girls, I can almost promise you’ll absolutely love this one as well. πŸ™‚

  33. Yes I’ve heard of this book a bunch of times!! Good of you to enjoy it πŸ˜€ I might want to read it soon if I can. HURRAY! Thanks for the review. I think it’s something I might enjoy!!!

  34. Dangerous Boys sounds crazy! Although I feel like I know who she got out of the fire but I guess I might be wrong based on your reaction to the end and the twists in the story. I love psychological thrillers so this should be really awesome to read. I’ll have to check out Dangerous Girls too. I’m glad it has so much unexpected things happening because I loved to be kept guessing especially when on the surface the characters seem pretty basic (meaning there is one bad boy brother and one good brother).

    1. IT IS! I think the person who gets out of the fire is a bit obvious, but the reason he gets out is definitely unpredictable; but that really doesn’t take away from your enjoyment of the story at all. (Kind of like Dangerous Girls – the culprit was kind of obvious IMO, but it was still REALLY twisy and fun to read!)

      If you like to be kept guessing, definitely give this one a try Adriana! πŸ™‚

  35. Ohhh, this looks so good! I haven’t read anything by Haas yet, but I’ve heard so many great things about this book and Dangerous Girls. Are they a series? Definitely going to pick them up now from your review!

    1. IT IS GINA! πŸ˜€ They’re not a series, but they’re both mysteries / thrillers. So glad to hear you’re going to pick it up – can’t wait to hear what you think! πŸ˜€

  36. Ok so I haven’t read the first bok yet and idk if I can read your review without seeing even the midlest spoilers, but I’m not going to risk it. We’ll talk when I’m more into the series. Nick just got me the first book, so I can’t wait to fig in and fangirl with all of you πŸ™‚ Based on your rating, I’m glad you enjoyed, Zoe!

    Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination

    1. I’ll definitely be open to discussing when you finish them, okay Siiri? πŸ˜€ Definitely Tweet / DM me so we can talk! (Because there is A LOT to talk about!) I’m looking forward to seeing what you think! πŸ™‚

  37. GAAAAAAH, I’m so behind in reading your blog! Sorry Zoe!!!

    I’m going to read this soon and I want to go in blind so I skimmed your review but your rating and final words says it all! I’m trying to prepare myself for this book because DG pretty much teared me to pieces but will probably read this tonight or tomorrow. I’m scared and excited at the same time!!!

    1. It’s okay Amir! πŸ˜€ I completely understand! I can’t wait to see what you think about it when you read it – especially since you liked DG so much!

  38. Physiological thrillers are the best! I love it when stories are all about the minds of characters πŸ˜€ and a mind-blown reveal is all I need to hear. This book wasn’t on my radar, actually. Based on the cover I thought it was going to be a NA with a boy with a troubled past or something like that, and I don’t dig such books. It’s a good thing I’m showed it’s something else, because this does sound like my type of story πŸ˜€

    1. THEY ARE! It’s unfortunate because they’re so hard to find in the YA genre – let alone good ones, but Haas’ books are incredible.

      And haha! I completely see how you might have thought that! πŸ˜‰ I’m glad to hear the actual story is much more up your alley!

  39. I knew you were trouble when you walked in.

    Perfect description of that brother! I knew there was something off about him.

    I liked that this book is a bit darker, but I was looking for the thrill, like in DG. However, it did not disappoint!

    1. Haha! I found this GIF and I was like [spoiler]OMG! It’s Oliver![/spoiler] Haha! This one was definitely a bit darker and more mature than DG, but I loved it all the same, and I’m glad you did too!

  40. You won’t believe the number of raving reviews I’ve seen for this book so far! It’s starting to sound soooo goood. I have to admit that even though I’m not a fan of the YA mystery genre (not after the horrors that were The Killing Woods and The Body in the Woods), I’m really interested in checking Dangerous Boys out, and its predecessor, too!

    I always admire authors who are good at foreshadowing and making things so complex that you don’t know what’s going to happen AT ALL. It’s something I think is really hard to do, so I’m glad that Abigail Haas managed to pull that off here. It’s probably one of the most important aspects for mystery novels, imo. And now you have me wondering about this mind-blowing reveal.

    Yay for awesome characters, too! I read in another review that the characters are a little on a dark side, which I love. And of course, relatable MCs are the best. I really like that the whole book has strong psychological elements, even for the characters. Mental stuff fascinate me. πŸ˜›

    Definitely hoping I’ll be able to read this book in the future! I just have a question, though: can I read this without reading Dangerous Girls? If I remember correctly, DG received quite a few mixed reviews, so I’m not sure I want to read it just yet. Anyhow, amazing review as always, Zoe!

    1. Haha! Actually…yes I can believe all the rave reviews you’ve seen because it is just THAT GOOD. πŸ˜‰ I agree! The YA mystery / thriller genre is quite unfortunate. It’s such a small category; so it’s just that much harder to find a YA mystery / thriller that is good; but somehow Abigail Haas has written two! πŸ˜€

      I do too! The complexity and twists in this novel is absolutely wonderful. I’d love to spend a day in Haas’ mind because she is absolutely brilliant!

      And the characters are definitely a bit on the dark side if you like that kind of thing! And the psychology aspect is absolutely fascinating too!

      You can definitely read this without reading Dangerous Girls first. (Although I’d definitely recommend reading DG first because I liked it a tad more, but if you only want to read DB, of course that’s fine too!)

      Thank you! <3

  41. Brilliant review! So happy you loved this one so much. I felt the exact same, I really loved this but Dangerous Girls was my favourite of the two.

    Haas is a genius, her books keep me up till the early hours of the morning trying to finish them. I can’t put them down. I really hope she writes another psychological thriller soon because I need more.

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ It’s awesome to find someone who feels the same way. The books both have their individual merits, so it’s really just a matter of personal preference, you know? I hope she writes another psychological thriller soon too! Dangerous Pets perhaps? πŸ˜‰
