REVIEW: Campus Killer (bk 1) and Scorned (bk 2) by Andrew Hess

I have been given these ARCs in exchange for an honest review.

Andrew Hess has made a convert of me. I haven't ever really been able to immerse myself in a crime thriller before but once I started reading about Detective Ali Ryan and couldn't stop. From the moment you start reading about the serial killer on her little sisters campus you want to know she makes it all ok. As each death passes you can feel her frustration and resentment of the killer. All you want is for her to solve it, when she does will it be a HEA? Can her and her sister ever move on from their ordeal.

In Scorned the story continues and believe when I say Hess keeps the punches rolling. Attacking the plot from the survivors perspective you get for the sisters and hope they can find a way through their darkness. The new killer is different from the last and you find yourself empathising with her. To an extent I even wanted her to be free.

Hess has a interesting and articulate approach to the stories and fully wraps you into Ali Ryan's life. I look forward to reading many more from Hess and definitely recommend for your TBR.

The book had several twist that I didn't see coming. Absolutely Fantastic!! I'm looking forward to reading more books by Andrew Hess. I highly recommend reading it.

I received an advanced reader’s copy of Scorned from Loving the Book in exchange for an honest review. This story begins with a young woman named Claire Cain who starts attending meetings to help her through something that happened six months ago—a man slipped her drugs and then took advantage of her. Now, seeing low-life and manipulative men wherever she goes, she can’t help but want to turn things around and give them a taste of their own medicine—only, it doesn’t exactly end well the first time that she decides to intervene. After the death of a very powerful and influential attorney, Claire wakes up the next morning in a complete panic. Claire has nowhere to go, but she knows that she can’t go on with her life without the remorse and guilt suffocating her. The only thought that helps her is knowing that these men will never hurt another woman again, but will it all fall back on her until the famous Detective Ali Ryan figures out who the killer is?

My favorite characters are Detective Ali Ryan, Detective James Thornton and Claire Cain. Again, I noticed the detective remains very head-strong, even though the story begins with her back on desk duty for the Campus Killer shooting. She still exudes the confidence from the first book, but there is a determination to get back to her field work. After the first murder, everyone automatically assumes that it is a homicide, unlike the first case that she began working on. I liked the way that Detective Thornton came through and took charge, even though Detective Ryan completely disregarded him as anything other than a womanizer. She does not automatically fall for his charms, unlike every other woman who he comes in contact with. I also really sympathized with Claire Cain. Dr. Cain has been traumatized and it can be clearly seen that her fear of men is unhealthy. She becomes extremely paranoid and believes that she has really become a killer who is being hunted down and followed, but little does she know that her fears and mentality allow her to be the perfect pawn.

In my opinion, this book deserves five stars. I thought that the overall story was thought out and planned really well. The content flowed well and there was an incredible amount of creativity. The story started off quick and maintained its pace throughout the entire read; however, there were still a ton of grammatical and spelling errors much like the first book. I can honestly say that this series has been great thus far and I do enjoy the originality and detail that the author created to surround his characters. I will be waiting for the third installment of this series and I look forward to reading more of his other books as well because his creativity and character development continue to astound me.

I read the first book, The Campus Killer, before reading this book (which is recommended but doesn’t have to be). I was excited to read the book to find out more about the twist at the end of book 1. Instead I found another storyline that twisted and turned all on its own and gives you peeks into the twists of the first book. The ending leaves me wanting to know more. In my opinion a book that keeps you wanting to know more and find out the next part is a great book! Andrew Hess has definitely done that again (so much that I just want to strangle him into the next book)! It is such a well written story that captures and keeps your attention from beginning to end. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out. I am quickly becoming Andrew’s #1 supporter as his writing of mystery/thriller is amazing and capturing! Any one that likes detective mystery/thrillers will love not only this book but the series. This is definitely more than a 5 star read!!

Will try to review without giving away the plot/finish. This book is riveting in spots and when you think you figure out the who done's not who you think it is. This can be enjoyed as a stand alone but his first book has a lot of background info that would be helpful in reading this book. action packed....if you like police thrillers this is one to read for sure. When you get to the end of book, once again you think the case is solved.....however it's a cliffhanger ending....can't wait for the next book
