WARNING: Boys Will Be Boys is Extreme Horror, and NOT for the squeamish, the easily offended, or those with large sticks up their butts. It gets graphic, and may trigger things long buried. Here’s your second WARNING.
‘Bri goes hiking with her friends, determined to make fun memories before her and her friends are off to college.’
‘Everett and his friends are making their own memories; ones the girls aren’t going to want to be a part of. The boys forcefully include them anyway.’Amazon Synopsis
I have to say that this was a hard book to read. I had a moment of wanting to beat my Kindle against the closest, and hardest thing possible – while swear-screaming, and ugly-crying. A couple hours of reading exhausted me.
I do love Rayne’s writing style. The only way I know to describe it is he said / she said. Every other chapter. You get to read the POV from both sides – in this book it’s boy/girl, rapist/victim, murderer/dead girl. She writes it all, every dirty joke/every scratch left. All in excruciating detail…
“We’re doing this. Here is the place and now, is the time.”Everett
Rayne doesn’t fuck around with foreplay, that’s for sure. This time she kinda slammed it in and broke it off. After about the first 10% of the book, there are three pages of happiness. How do things get fucked-up so fast?! I’m talking IRL, too, because this story is just that. It could. It might. Maybe it has. In just a matter of moments you can go from the top of the world to the deepest pits of Hell. Un-livable. Un-repairable. Rayne writes so well, and so passionately. I had to fight off a panic attack when shit got REAL real. I was there, on that mountain, and it was tragic.
But, if you DO survive, then what? What’s next? If it’s anything near what happens in this book – listen close, and hear me loud and clear – no-fucking-thank-you. This ending… Omg, no spoilers.
Note to author: I’m yelling out titles of revenge horror movies, and begging for a do over so my guts feel better. GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS needs to be your literary I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Not necessarily a sequel, but, I’d love to see these boys try it again inside of a new cover… Especially after reading that last line!
If you haven’t read this one yet, mind the trigger warnings, but hurry and go get it!! I need to discuss!! While I wait for you, I have Killstreme downloaded, and can’t wait to start reading.
