Review: Where Good Girls Go To Die (Good Girls #1) by Holly Renee
Publication Date: April 13, 2017
Rating: 4.5 stars
It was a bad idea from the beginning.
He was my brother's best friend and the definition of unavailable.
But I didn't care.
I had loved him for as long as I could remember.
He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.
But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn't there to catch me.
So I ran.
Four years later, I never expected to see him again.
He was still my brother's best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.
He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.
Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.
When I first started Where Good Girls Go to Die, I was instantly sucked in. There was just something about Liv’s story that made me want to read more, and I found myself unable to put the book down.
As I continued to read, I realized Liv’s story was very much complicated, but it was so good to read it and learn more about her. Liv is just one of those characters that you love to read about, and to me, she grew a lot in this book. Parker, however, was an entirely different character. While I did love him from the start, he really frustrated me to no end. Parker had some great qualities about him that saved his character, and although I didn’t agree with some of his choices, it didn’t take away from the book. There is something that goes on that some might not agree with, but I was surprised it didn’t bother me.
The only thing that held back this book from getting a five star, is the fact that I felt Liv and Parker didn’t get enough time together. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very well written book, and I did enjoy it, but I wanted more from them.
