NOVELLA REVIEW - TORMENTING LILA by SARAH ALDERSON


 TORMENTING LILA
(Lila #2.5)
by
SARAH ALDERSON

Format/Acquired:  Digital from Author

RATING: 5 SHORT AWESOME STARS!

When Lila and Alex sneak off for a romantic weekend away, Lila’s hoping she’ll finally have a chance to work on Alex’s resolve.

But just as things start heating up news reaches them of a serial killer at loose on the island and it isn’t long before their intimate weekend away is interrupted.

A mind reader, a projector, a protective older brother and a serial killer. One of them is going to find Lila first. She's hoping it's the serial killer.

MARISSA'S REVIEW

True to Sarah Alderson's writing skill, I became engrossed in Tormenting Lila from the start.  

It was great to be back reading more Lila and Alex - and as the story progressed (though short) it certainly became evident that there was a whole lot more to come for these two.  So much so that when I got to the last page.....I kept flicking back and forth seeking more pages to read...."No - it can't end there"!  I had been sucked in and so engrossed, I had forgotten it was a novella!!

Looking for some R&R after an awesome bad guy take down (!), Alex and Lila head off to have some "alone" time on Nantucket. Well, alone as can be had when your super power buddies end up in the same place.  Oh, and Alex has some rules for what is allowed to happen during your alone time!!! Lila is not impressed and no amount of girl swagger can change his mind!

But with all things Lila, nothing is simple and danger seems to saunter up and slap her like a wet fish !  Seriously - can a girl get some down time please?!

The clever introduction of new characters has been used as a launch to Sarah's newest and stand-alone novel The Sound. With the introduction of Jessie into the storyline, fans of Lila Series should be jumping out of their skin for The Sound. My eyes will be devouring that one for sure......Jessie sounds like Alex's competition in the hottie department!!

In a nutshell people - if you love the Lila Series, Tormenting Lila (as with previous Lila Novella's) is a must read. If you haven't delved into Lila's world - go....go now and don't return till you have all available books/novella's......and have yourself a Lila fest!!

ENJOY!
MARISSA
