Snake Eyes by Melissa Pearl Review and Release Day

Title: Snake Eyes
Author: Melissa Pearl
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Release Date: January 30, 2015

Caitlyn Davis expects her sophomore year at UCLA to be perfect...until she walks into her dorm room to find Special Agent Zoey Kaplan of the FBI waiting for her. In that instant, she knows her idyllic year with new best friends, Nicole and Dale, along with her super hot boyfriend, Eric, is about to fall apart.

Having been forced to work with the FBI months earlier, Caity accidentally gave away her special ability to read people's emotions and know whether they were telling the truth. Now, Kaplan wants Caity to go undercover again for a secret operation that will bring her close to the sadistic Diego Mendez, a man believed to be involved in human trafficking.

Eric Shore is not a man who trusts easily. Having been burned multiple times, it’s hard for him to open up completely, but his love for Caity makes him want to try. Yet, her sudden withdrawal worries him, particularly when she chooses to spend time with her new roommate, Quella Mendez, over him. When Caity’s behavior begins to match that of her wild roommate, Eric wonders if their relationship is as strong as he believed.

As Caity struggles to maintain her relationship and do her job, she finds herself pulled further into a dangerous world that could take away everything she holds dear. Will Eric learn the truth in time to save her? Or will the man with the eyes of a snake destroy their perfect romance?

My Review
4.5 out of 5 stars

This has become my favorite book of the series so far because finally Eric and Caity are together! Eric is a sweetie and I love that he loves Caity so much and of course Caity loves Eric just as much. I went from loving Eric in book one to slightly disliking him in book two and then love loving him completely in book three. He was so understanding of Caity and I loved their Taco Tuesdays! Of course this couple will run into some problems like always. Caity just can't seem to keep out of trouble but that is what I like about her. She always tries to help others no matter what it costs her but this time the price might be high.

Just when Caity and her friend Nicole were about to move with their boyfriends, Dale and Eric, she is forced to say she doesn't want to in order to stay in her dorm.  This time, agent Caity as I like to call her is kind of coerced into helping Agent Kaplan (Man I do hate the lady) stop Diego Mendez who is involved in human trafficking. To do this she must stay in her dorm to make friends with her new roommate Quella who also happens to be the daughter of Mendez. Quella has been homeschooled, sheltered all her life, and received everything she ever desired but she wants to live the college life. This leads to Caity partying almost everyday which leads her away from her friends Dale and Nicole as well as Eric. 

In order for this case to work Caity must find out information from Quella but she is more reserved that Caity thought. Caity must keep trying to find out where the secret location is and where the kidnapped girls are being sold before they are crossed over the border. Kaplan blackmails Caity into doing things that are bad and I hate her for it. Caity has to do it if not bad things will happen so Caity agrees. Interesting things start to happen then and just when you think your safe something happens that makes me want to punch something. This book ends in quite the cliffhanger but it excites me for Poker Face which is the next book in the series. I am ready for you Poker Face and I must say that I really need you right about now!


Melissa Pearl was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but has spent much of her life abroad, living in countries such as Jordan, Cyprus and Pakistan... not to mention a nine month road trip around North America with her husband. "Best. Year. Ever!!" She now lives in China with her husband and two sons. She is a trained elementary teacher, but writing is her passion.

She loves the variety and is excited about the books she has coming up in 2015.
