Review posted on Way Too Hot Books Buried Secrets was one tough book to label New adult, mystery suspense, romance, paranormalThat last one I didn t expect and it s probably what bugged me the most.Storyline So, we meet Dusty, eighteen year old girl, on funeral of her twin brother Nick She s inconsolable and can t get over the fact that her brother was killed Who jumps in Nick s best friend Shane Of course Dusty tries to find out what happened and soon enough find herself in the arms of town s infamous bad boy Quite predictable story If you stop here Emme Rollins didn t stop That was my main problem with this book It s almost as if you have two separated stories mixed into one book love story and mystery and they just don t work out together Other thing which I didn t like was ending Paranormal part was a deal breaker for me Until that point I thought that I ll at least like Buried Secrets because of mystery, but that killed it for me.Characters Dusty has a potential to be a likeable character, so does Shane, but, again, it s like in the first half of the book author decided to write new adult novel and in the second adult novel In the first half of the book they are acting like kids, but later they are too much like those characters from cheap romance novels where they are all using this big words in intimate conversation
ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.I loved Dear Rockstar, so when given a chance to read Buried Secrets I jumped on it Knowing only that it was going to be a much different kind of story I had no idea what else I was going to experience reading this This story was so much different than what I would normally read, but I found myself completely sucked into it within just a few pages Emme Rollins created a whole new world within this story filled with friendships, love, a whole lot of conspiracy mystery Dusty s story begins on the day of her twin brother, Nick s funeral She had already suffered the loss of her mother years before and now losing Nick has her rethinking her future Enter Shane The resident bad boy and Nick s best friend The guy that Dusty always thought wedged the relationship between her and her twin But there is something about the look in Shane s eyes that makes Dusty believe he knows what happened to her brother that night Something he is hiding.As Dusty and Shane grow closer, they discover emotions that they both had buried over the years But he

I discovered Emme Rollins when I read her fabulous book Dear Rockstar, which I loved So I was really excited when Buried Secrets was announced I was aware that it was a totally different kind of book no rockstars and I wondered if I was going to like it as much as the first.As there have been so many awesome reviews previously written which include a lot of information of the story summary, I have decided to just write down my feelings and thoughts after finishing reading the last page.Emme Rollins s writing continues to impress me It s smooth, flowing really well, making it an easy read Fast paced plot that keeps you glued to your seat, with unexpected twists and turns You are kept guessing until the very end.From the very beginning, the story pulled me in The pain and sadness and loss that Dusty felt at losing her beloved twin brother was unbearable at times for me There is no way one can truly understand her heartache Having to bury a person she had loved with all her heart How can one ever overcome such tragedy The vividness of her descriptions made me picture the setting that the story takes place in, really well.The small town, the people and their reactions to the horrors happening around them is totally believable.I liked the character development,
WOW This book had me hanging on the edge It exceeded the expectations I made for this I ve been going through books like it s chocolate, trying to find something new and different, and let me tell you, Buried Secrets is it I loved the characters and how they developed through the book, it was a breath of fresh air Shane s and Dusty s relationship was so cute, I fell in love with it in a snap Shane sigh I do love my bad boys, especially this misunderstood bad boy, how could I not An autism boy I ve never read a book with someone autistic, thats when you know this
ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.I am once again blown away by the quality of Emme Rollins workwell and truly blown awayWhile NA YA is not usually a genre I read, I do make exceptions, and after having read Dear Rockstar I was than happy to pick this one up to review After reading an author and loving a book there s always a bit of apprehension in picking up a secondwill it be as good, or was the first a fluke Thankfully I needn t have worried In this romantic suspense novel we are given the story of Dusty, who has just lost her twin brother Nick He s been murdered killed in a mysterious manner and Dusty feels the need to figure out what has happened Who wouldn t, right I think that was one of the things I loved most about this novel it felt so real Dusty s feelings and actions are closely examined throughout much of the book and I found them totally believable this is how a girl who has lost her twin brother really would feel and act We are immersed in her grief, and feel it deeply No, this is not really a depressing noveldon t worrythere s much to it Dusty also explores her feelings for Shane, Nick s best friend Their young romance is sweet and touching, and Shane will make many book boyfriend l
Is there anything you can t do Miss Rollins First off, I loved Dear Rockstar AND Dale sooooo much I mean, who wouldn t lol But I had no idea she was capable of this I am a really picky reader so I didn t really know what to expect going into this book I tend to stick to the dark romance genre, but Emme managed to keep me intrigued Okay, so this book had me feeling like Sherlock Holmes at times I was right there next to Dusty trying to figure out the mystery behind her twin brother s murder Nothing was adding up, and I was pointing my own fingers at possible suspects I felt so sad for Dusty Her whole view of her life was completely blown out of the water throughout the entire book I really liked seeing her relationship with her brother through the flashbacks It was easy to pick up on their personalities Shane, swoony swoony Shane I can definitely see why Dusty felt the way she did about this guy He was Nick s best friend The one who stole her twin and took her place I get it I may not be a twin, but I ve been a younger sister all my life and know what it s like to be shoved aside so to speak SHANE I love him, he s so sweet I loved loved loved learning Shane and Dusty s history together I also really enjoyed how this story had multiple layers Dusty is finding her true self while uncovering the many pieces to her brother s murder pu
Okay let me start out by saying that I was torn on how to rate this book The cover is HOT, the story immediately grips you right from the beginning, and Shane and Dusty s story is amazing, torrid, and sad That being said Nick, the drug company, the things destroying things and people, the unexpected flash backs you didn t know you were in, the sideline with Sam, threw me and made me rate it lower.The author would take parts of the past and insert them into the story line but you didn t realize it was a flashback until you realized they were kids or Nick was still alive in them That is what threw me for a reading loop Then we waited the enter book to find out what killed Nick and everything from there seemed rushed I wanted to know about what happended with Dusty s step mother, we get a small tidbit about her dad, but what about her step mom What happened with her father s company What does the future hold for Shane and Dusty
OK, wow, so that was freaking cool.Let s see if I can get through this review without any spoilers Let me start by thanking the author and goodreads for providing a copy for an honest review.Emme Rollins literally had me in tears within the first chapter We meet Dusty in a closet, at a funeral We learn the funeral is for her twin brother not a spoiler, see the book blurb Her grief is raw, and real If you have ever lost someone important to you, Dusty s pain feels true It was actually painful to read Enter Shane Curtis, um brother s best friend, local bad boy, and hottie Dusty realizes there is to Shane that what she has been seeing for years Together they are determined to find you what or who killed her brother.I loved the way the story was set up into three parts Suspicion, Accusation, and Redemption The story moves at such a fast pace you actually feel like you are watching a movie instead of r
