Summary: You’d Better Watch Yourself, Katie Kat
Katie Archer knows how to lie. After six years, no one really knows what happened That Night. Not even her twin sister. Choosing a college 3,000 miles away from the truth, Katie throws herself into art classes and a love affair with ice cream. Katie’s biggest rule? No boys. Ever.
But there is the little problem of Lucas Matthews. Former basketball star and total campus hottie, Lucas is the stuff girls have naughty dreams about—and he has the reputation to prove it! But that doesn’t stop liquid heat from running through Katie’s veins every time she sees him…
You’ll Never Get Away With It
Letting Lucas in is the hardest thing Katie’s ever had to do. And telling him the truth? Impossible. Then Katie starts to get threatening texts and she realizes Lucas is the least of her problems. Her past has caught up with her and it wants to settle the score.
I’m Coming For You
Now Katie must decide whether she wants to fight for her life, or leave everything—including Lucas—behind her forever… – Goodreads
Thoughts: **This copy was graciously given to me through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
You know those books that start off and you just know in your gut you are about to read an amazing book? That was how I felt about Put Me Back Together. So saying I loved this book would be an understatement; this was a book that once I started I could not put down. I became obsessed and when I finished there was an ache of longing, why must amazing books end? And why aren’t there more books with this type of plot quality and character development?
Katie Archer has a dark secret that has been locking her in a self appointed prison. Moving through life, but keeping to the fringe, she has mastered how to be a non-entity. There but not remembered. She is a captivating character and through out the whole book I wanted to know her story! I won’t go into her past but I loved that Rooney did not lay it all out for us.
There were a few predictable moments (when it comes to romance there generally is) but the mystery about Katie’s past was extremely griping. Getting small snippets throughout the book really allowed your imagination to run wild. There were a few times during this that I got a bit spooked, enough so that I had to double check the locks.
With a strong character like Katie you needed the male to match her and Lucas was perfect. Strong and independent and refreshing from all these playboys turned straight laced with one look at the lead female. In fact I think due to where Lucas was at the story and how unexpected he was, he stole my heart and quite possibly became one of my favorite male leads.
This debut novel leaves me begging for more books from Lola Rooney and if you have yet to read this one I strongly encourage you to go purchase and then immediately read.
