Dying to Run by Cami Checketts: Review & Giveaway(INT)
Cassidy Christensen is running.
Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.
Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.
Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.
With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she’ll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future.
Cassidy Christensen wants to run.
Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.
This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.
My View: Alright, you can go ahead and kill me now. Yes, you have my permission. I just made the biggest blunder ever in the reading world. I read Book 2 before reading Book 1 and that was done mistakenly. I know I can blame it on my newest personal low I have reached in my life which helps in not keeping my mind straight. So instead of doing the logical thing like checking on Goodreads or Amazon, I decided to go by the title and somehow thought that perhaps the main character was dying to run and then she died so it was Dead running. If you don’t see any logic in what I just wrote, I can completely understand. I think I’m going mad too.
Anyway, this book pulled me in with the very first line and never let go which is so wonderful, isn’t it? And the pages just flew by. So one good thing I can surely tell you is that this book stands alone really well because otherwise I would have known I was reading a sequel.*facepalm*
There are so many tones to this book, I love the variety. There’s action, there’s mystery, a bit of romance and some lively humor thrown in. I really like the characters, especially adore the Nana. She’s really cute!
The book is fast paced, oh how I love that. Recently I have been paying special attention to the editing because there are so many books with not only grammatical/ spelling mistakes but also an unending book that stretches on too long at few places. I end up cringing while reading such books because they do nothing to hold my attention and hence I get diverted to other books. So if a book holds my attention throughout and there’s not a word I will cut from it, then it’s a miracle.
Though it’s a very short read of just 78 pages, I enjoyed reading them all and never felt like something was rushed or the book was too short. It felt complete and I enjoyed my read.
P.S. I started reading Book 1 right away after Book 2 (possibly the only record holder for reading two series books back to back in the reverse order) and though I hate myself for already knowing some of the things that will happen, I’m enjoying reading it. But something tells me it’s Book 2 that I would like better even after finishing Book 1.
Anyway, off you go, purchase this book for only $0.99.
4/5 stars – I really liked it.
