The Halo Effect: Review

From Goodreads:
It started with a glance. And ended with a nightmare.

Small-town girl Haley Montgomery meets two men who will change her life forever—the handsome Marc Vincetti whom she falls head-over-heels for, and the big-time Hollywood producer Allen Michaels who has the power to turn her screenplay into a movie and a ticket to a better future.

It seems as though life couldn't get any better—until things take a decidedly dark turn when Haley spots Marc with his former high school sweetheart and Allen develops a consuming obsession with her.

As Haley is faced with a choice between love and fame, Marc becomes the target of a stalker and Haley's life is thrown into a tailspin. Suddenly everything she thought she knew about Marc and Allen is completely wrong—and Haley's life will never be the same again…

My Review:
This was a highly enjoyable thriller suspense novel! I enjoyed it, it, it was creepy and awesome, and each page held writing that I wanted to read (well, not the opening bits and the closing bits, but the actually story) but yeah, this was really great!

The idea that these two guys would want this lady-in various capacities-and at the scale of this book, well, it's believable, but it's unlikely to happen in real life, which makes it perfect to be a book! I had some reservations about it, but the story won me over!

Oh, the twists and turns in this book? You think one thing about the character, and the next, things have changed, and you just have to wonder, do we every really know anybody? Or do they just hide their secrets, and wear a mask to keep said secrets?

I enjoyed how this book ended! With all the suspense elements flying around in this book, well, the ending was a perfect fit for this book! Highly enjoyable, and satisfying in the way that tells you that you just read a great book!

Really enjoyed this book, it was a really great mystery thriller!
