Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…
Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.
When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts.
Follow Me Back was a definite surprise for me and in a completely good way. I was browsing NetGalley when I came across this book and the cover is what immediately drew me in. I just love the colors! But the synopsis definitely had me curious and when I was approved for this book, I was pretty excited.
Follow Me Back is a mixture of things. It shows what it's like to fangirl over someone famous and talented. It also shows what it's like to have the complete fear of something because of personal traumas or things seen on the news. It mixes humor, romance, and suspense and does so fantastically. I so enjoyed this book and was hooked from the first few chapters. The ending had me desperately wishing I had the second book so I could find out what happened!
I don't want to say too much because it's best to figure everything out on your own. You think you know what is happening one moment and then are surprised the next.
But I can say that I enjoyed the characters, Tessa and Eric. I understood them and I felt for the struggles that they had. They were real and pretty cool. I also enjoyed the way this book had mixed media. The police reports were an awesome touch since I really love all things "Law and Order" like. And the social media really made it relatable since I also use Twitter quite a bit. :)
There really wasn't much that I disliked about this story. Some of the characters were irritating but they were meant to be that way.
I so enjoyed this book and was hooked from the first few chapters. It was addicting and suspenseful and just plain exciting. The ending had me desperately wishing I had the second book so I could find out what happened! Definitely, give this one a try! I don't think you'll regret it. :)
