Week 9 Review: 100 Hours

From Goodreads:
In this pulse-pounding new trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent, a decadent spring break getaway on an exotic beach becomes a terrifying survival story when six Miami teens are kidnapped and ransomed.

Maddie is beyond done with her cousin Genesis's entitled and shallow entourage. Genesis is so over Miami's predictable social scene with its velvet ropes, petty power plays, and backstabbing boyfriends.

While Maddie craves family time for spring break, Genesis seeks novelty—like a last-minute getaway to an untouched beach in Colombia. And when Genesis wants something, it happens.

But paradise has its price. Dragged from their tents under the cover of dark, Genesis, Maddie, and their friends are kidnapped and held for ransom deep inside the jungle—with no diva left behind. It all feels so random to everyone except Genesis. She knows they were targeted for a reason. And that reason is her.

Now, as the hours count down, only one thing's for certain: If the Miami hostages can't set aside their personal problems, no one will make it out alive. 

My Review:
This book was utterly fantastic! With a beautiful cover, and an intriguing synopsis, this book delivers on it's promise of an epic book! I loved reading it, and the wait for the sequel is going to be awful, given that cliffhanger ending!

I had a hard time reading this book. Not that it was bad or I didn't enjoy it, but that it's a captive book, and I have a hard time reading them! Most notably, was Stolen by Kelley Armstrong, but yeah, I kinda had a fear of reading this book, which is why I meant to read it in 2016, and am only reading it now!  My brain is weird!

The countdown of 100 hours was really great for me, to watch the time going past, and the countdown until the "now" that was the first page. And knowing something bad was going to happen, between that and the synopsis, I just had to know what was going to happen!

I really enjoyed reading about Genesis and Maddy. They are different people, and they don't like each other all the time, but they are cousins. And they've both gone through hard times, both losing a parent. I can't wait to read more about them!

Such a fantastic book with an evil cliffhanger ending, and I need to know what's going to happen next!
