Snake Eyes Release Day Blitz Review with Melissa Pearl

Snake Eyes
By Melissa Pearl
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 Thoughts:

Snake Eyes is the third book in the Masks Series. In this series, Caitlyn Davis has been given a special gift where she is able to take off the masks of other people and see their emotions. In this episode of the series agent Kaplan of the FBI coerces Caitlyn into helping herself a sex trafficking case by threatening her boyfriend with an unsavoury character from her fathers past .

Caitlyn doesn't get paid for her work with the FBI yet she's put into physical danger. Just as she was planning on moving in with her boyfriend into an apartment off campus Kaplan bursts into her life and tells her that she can't do that and must stay in her dorm room on campus. Kaplan works things so that Caitlyn rooms with a girl named Quella who happens to be the daughter of a sex trafficker who is the suspect in Kaplan's case. Not only that but Caitlyn less keep everything a secret from her friends and from her boyfriend especially.

The story is told from both Caitlin's and Eric's point of view. The chapters tend to alternate between the two. I like this because it gave us the different points of view of the same situation.

There was lots of action, tension, and suspense in this plot twisted story. However, if you're hoping for a resolution by the end of this book you'll be sadly disappointed. This one ends as a cliffhanger. You'll have to find out what happens in the next book.

I would rate this book as adult themed due to the swearing in the book and the sexual scenes contained here-in.

For those who like mysteries I would recommend this book. I rated it four stars out of five.

Thank you to the publishers for providing a copy of this book in exchange for fair and honest review. A positive review was not required. All thoughts are my own.


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. Since becoming a full time mother she has had the opportunity to pursue this dream and her debut novel hit the internet in November 2011. Since then she has continued to produce a steady stream of books, ranging in genres from Fantasy to Contemporary Romance. She loves the variety and is excited about the books she has coming up in 2015.

"I am passionate about writing. It stirs a fire in my soul that I never knew I had. I want to be the best writer I can possibly be and transport my readers into another world where they can laugh, cry and fall in love."
