I’m not scripting my life anymore.
I’m living it.
I’m done with the God of all Hotties.
I’m going to give my heart to the boy who I think deserves it.
The boy whose kisses are hotter than molten lava.
The boy who offered me the key to his heart.
The boy who asked me to Homecoming in a big, sexy way.
There are so many things to look forward to.
Parties at the Cave. Homecoming festivities. Drama Tryouts. Shopping trips to NY.
But things aren’t always as perfect as they seem.
I find out that my best friend has been keeping a secret from me.
Not that I can blame him.
I have secrets too.
But, for now, I’m going to pretend I’m just a normal girl.
I’m going to pretend he’s not still out there.
I’m going to pretend he’s not getting desperate.
I’m going to pretend I’ll never see him again.
But, I will.
And this time, I might not get away.
I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.
My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.
All because of a stalker.
I’m at a boarding school, where I have to lie about who I am.
I can’t see my family.
I’m tutoring a hottie god that tortures me with his smile.
The most popular girl already hates me.
But there’s this boy.
This hot, sweet, sexy boy.
So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.
Because who knows how long I have left.
Check out my review of Stalk Me (Keatyn Chronicles #1)
Check out my review of Kiss Me (Keatyn Chronicles #2)
“‘You can have two lives. The image you present to the world, and the you that you are at home. Mom told me the other day that it doesn’t matter what everyone thinks. It only matters what the people you love think.'”
“You can’t fully love anyone until you learn to love yourself.”
Favorite Character: Riley. Or Aiden…they’re both super adorable!
“I float my way to French class on cloud nine.”
My Musings: I’ve been following this series now for a while, and I must say that the novels seem to be improving as they go on. With the first novel in this series, Stalk Me, I was annoyed with quite a few things, like Keatyn’s shallowness and stupidity. However, I have to say, that these things got better and Keatyn’s character began to grow on me. Now, I can say that Dodd has created a hysterically funny series that I cannot wait to follow until the end.
The narration of this novel is unique. The narrator is Keatyn, the main character, and she has a voice unlike any that I have ever read before. Some may say that it’s flat and annoying, but I’ve come to understand that it perfectly portrays Keatyn’s character as she matures over the course of the novel. I really enjoy the concept of the plot of this novel. We have some twists and turns regarding the stalker, and we have some heart pounding action moments. In addition to that, we have the reality-show like following of Keatyn’s life in boarding school. This is perhaps the best part of the novel. Watching Keatyn with her contemporary problems in boarding school is what a majority of the novel focuses on.
I enjoy Keatyn’s character. She’s not the deepest character I’ve read, in fact, she’s slightly shallow and superficial. However, she is a dynamic character, and she is becoming less of the Barbie that is portrayed on the cover as the novels continue. It is great to see her mature and develop as a person. Keatyn is also one of the funniest characters that I have ever read. Her dialogue kept me laughing over the duration of the entire novel. She’s definitely a character that will grow on you if you give her the chance.
And the other characters. I really love Riley and Dallas. They are the seemingly perfect friends for Keatyn, and all three of their personalities complement and balance each other’s. Riley is the sweet older brother-like friend who you just want to spill your heart out to. Dallas is the chill friend that you love to hang out with. I’d love a pair of friends like them. Peyton is also an interesting character. It was fun to see her grow into her own shell and learn to stand up for herself. And the boys. We have Dawson and Aiden. Like I was at the end of Kiss Me, I am still on Team Aiden. I think that Aiden is just the cutest thing. He’s adorably sweet, super nice, and I think he really cares about Keatyn. Dawson, on the other hand, frustrates me. I feel, personally, like Keatyn is being used for her body in their relationship, no matter what Dawson claims.
Overall, Date Me was another great installment to the Keatyn Chronicles. If you’re looking for a hilarious, light read with some super cute romance and friends, then you have found your match in this book.
