My Review:
I'm a little biased about this book because I edited it! But it was great before I came along and I blazed through it a lot faster than I would a lot of books.

Riley's Torment by Christina Smith takes place right after the first book, Riley's Secret. Megan is in love with Nate, and she can't wait to continue her life with him. But he's a werewolf, and someone sinister is lurking in the shadows, just waiting to ruin their happiness.  With their friends Joe and Lauren, Megan and Nate struggle to make their relationship work and keep their friends and family safe. But soon, secrets explode and something dreadful happens that could ruin everything they've worked for.

I enjoyed this installment even more than the last one. Riley's Torment is filled with great plot twists, introduces more interesting characters, and leaves us hanging for the next book. Megan is a terrific protagonist, and we watch as she grows stronger, better and more confident. The book moves seamlessly between her first person perspective and a third person perspective of Nate. This move is important and necessary for the plot-- and most of all, it works. 

Overall, this book does not fall in the sophomore slump category. It improves and enhances its precursor, and I do believe that the third installment will be the best of them all.

Note: This book will be available to the public soon. I will post a reminder when it comes out officially on Amazon!
