 Review 5 Stars!
There aren’t a lot of books out there that keep me interested the way the Snapped series did.  After each installment I would be in a book slump for at least the next two days because all I could think of was Snapped and how the last part ended.  I swear, each time I read one I had an entire scenario in my head of what the ending would be like.  Low and behold I was wrong, confirming that not only is Ketley Allison freaking amazing, but that a good mystery story is as addictive as candy to me. 
There are a lot of different ways she could have written this, and there are a lot of ways that it could have gone wrong, but it was all perfect.  I think my most favorite part of this series was not the characters, or even the crime itself, but how engaged my mind was.  I wasn’t skimming, or speed-reading the way I normally do, I was devouring every word looking for clues.  I knew that she was smart enough to drop breadcrumbs throughout the story, and tried my hardest to look out for it.  It’s the tiniest of details that make this story come together so flawlessly. 
When it came time for me to read the last volume my mind was blown.  I DID NOT SEE IT COMING.  I’m fairly certain that I need some sort of group to discuss how awesome this series was because I just can’t contain myself.  I need to discuss the craziness that is Snapped because even days later I’m still sitting here thinking to myself “Did that really just happen?! How did I miss the signs?!” I have a life you know, I can’t just think about this book all day long! Anyways, that’s not the point, what is the point is this: Ketley  Allison’s writing is on point. 
I adored these characters.  Every.   Single.  One.   They were all written beautifully.  Everyone having a completely different personality, each unique, and relatable, but each of them having a dark side too.  As things start to get crazy in the book you start to see some of the true colors that are hiding under the surface, and I ate it up.  And by the way, for those of you who are wondering, my absolute favorite was Nate.  He’s hot.  He’s passionate.  He’s kind of crazy.  And good lord that lip ring.  That’s what I have to say about that. 
If you enjoy a good mystery, or a complete mind f**k, read this series.  Seriously.  Its fun to read, and it’ll keep you engaged in the story the entire time.  Five stars to a woman who just fed my addiction for mystery and romance all at once.

Snapped Bk 1
Displaying Snapped.jpg
 “We have someone who saw you struggling with the deceased before using that knife. Your best friend, and our eye witness.”
In nine weeks Charlie Miller’s life goes from high-rolling perfection to a crypt of sin. All it takes is one night, one blade, and her boyfriend, best friend and new friends all either end up as suspects or dead.
Nate Westcott, a pierced, tattooed, charismatic lawyer, is a man she can’t have—but a seductive danger she can’t ignore. He’s cocky, infuriating, brilliant and wrong, yet he makes her question whether she really is the good girl she wants to be or more like the selfish killer everyone thinks she is.
And her body wants him in ways she’s not supposed to crave.
As the weeks close in, cracks start forming in her everyday world of pro football golden boys, law school domination and New York City nightlife. Everyone she cares about is at risk because one of them doesn’t love Charlie back. In fact, they want her out of the way. Disposed of. Set up.
One more step, and all Charlie has to do is fall through.

Week 1 starts now.


Snapped is Ketley’s New Adult Contemporary series with all the romance you’d expect, but the killer—and lovers—that you don’t.

 Shade Bk 2 
Displaying Shade.jpgFamous boyfriend, penthouse on Park Avenue, full scholarship and best friend along for the ride?


A smartass drummer boy, dark obsession and a hint of betrayal?




Charlie Miller’s life in New York City is just getting started.

Sin Bk 3 
Displaying Sin.jpgCharlie's first love is perfect. He's kindhearted, the sex is great, and he only wants her despite the spotlight that brings him fame. Her life is wonderful, filled with purpose and cushioned by the man of her dreams.

Something is wrong here.

Her instincts are kicking in, telling her that Slade isn't the man she thinks he is, but her heart is at war. She loves him, despite the attraction that sparks between her and Nate, the lonely, magnetic man who has popped into her life solely to piss her off. Slade loves her, despite the bright cameras and hot women and the ongoing pressure to succeed.

Doesn't he love her?

Slade's getting closer to Charlie's new friend, a girl who blushes in his presence and changes face as soon as he leaves. Reagan seems sweet and everyone tells Charlie she's adorable, cute...innocent as an angel. But Charlie's starting to see her differently. Problem is, no one believes her.

Simple jealousy, or a warning of what's to come?

Someone's plotting a murder, and its execution hinges on Charlie's choice. If she turns the wrong way, ignores the right signals, and chooses the wrong man, well...

The ultimate sin will result. 

Sacred Bk 4 
Displaying Sacred.jpgSometimes your first love doesn’t equal your true love.

Jason Sladerman is Charlie’s one. For him, she would adjust to a new city, deal with sudden fame and fandom, and change her life. But never did she think she’d have to tolerate sudden obsession.

Yet that is what Reagan Wescott feels for Charlie’s man. She infiltrated Charlie’s life, made her believe in their friendship, but only to get closer to Slade. Charlie knows, and is finally starting to trust her instincts, that Reagan is manic over him, stalking him, sick over him.

Until the email.

Now Charlie doesn’t know who’s true and who’s false, who loves her and who hates her. Her one true friend, Lara, is too preoccupied with her own love life to notice Charlie’s faltering. Slade’s too involved in proving his innocence to notice the danger. Reagan doesn’t care about anyone but Slade and will do anything to get to him. And Nate wants Charlie so much he turns a blind eye to everything but her.

Their misguided dreams are their greatest mistake. Murder’s on the horizon, and while everyone holds on tight to their sacred wishes, someone uses that chance to sneak by.

And kill.

In Ketley Allison’s fourth installment of the Snapped Novella Series, the question is no longer who will snap, but who did.

Suspect Bk 5
Displaying Suspect.jpg“I saw it in his eyes.” I crossed my arms. “They’re going after me. I seriously think I’m their top suspect. Didn’t you see the way they looked at me just now? And the questions. It’s because of the fight. I should’ve called the police!” Fingers tangled in my hair, I strode back and forth. “Why didn’t I press charges when I could? How could I have listened to
you over something like that? And who in God’s name killed? Because it wasn’t me!” I smashed my pointer finger into my chest. “It wasn't me!”

The police have their prime suspect. More importantly, they have motive.

SACRED had you reeling, but SUSPECT will have you desperate to figure out the ultimate truth.

Who snapped?

Surrender Bk 6 
Displaying Surrender.jpg“So that’s it? You just never want to see me anymore?”

I want to see you every day. “We can still call each other. I want to help you find answers, I’ll never stop with that. To absolve not only me, but you, too. But that means we have to focus on what’s important, and it’s not this.” I stumbled back when he moved closer still.


“Not this,” I repeated.

Truth cannot conquer lies. It can’t prove Charlie’s innocence. It sure as hell doesn’t prevent the police from closing in. With clues that are leading straight to her, the only thing Charlie knows for sure is that no one is without their own sins—including the man she cares about the most.

Will love turn out to be the ultimate distraction? Or will it be the one weapon to shatter perceptions and spare Charlie’s life?

There is only one novella left. This is sixth installment of Ketley Allison’s seven-part new adult romantic suspense series.
Can you get to the killer before Charlie does?

Author Info 
Displaying Ketley.jpgKetley Allison began her career by writing books as birthday presents for her friends (with her friend as the main character and opposite a super sexy lead, of course) before ending it in order to walk down a path she thought she was supposed to follow.

The writing bug never left her–and, in fact, would often bleed into the official papers she was supposed to write–so now Ketley’s putting down her suit and finally following her dream. While her friends are no longer the stars of her books, she still throws in bits and pieces of them into each and every one of her characters.

As a result, her books tend to focus a lot on friendships as well as love, because let’s be honest, friends are what really get you through–especially when your epic love turns into epic heartbreak.
