Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…
Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.
When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
This is the second book I read like fangirling-meet-celebrity thing and until now, it didn’t fail to amaze me. This one is tricky, the twist is on control and everything set in order. The ending? OMG! The ending, you wouldn’t even expect it coming. I finished this book in one seating, what can I say? it’s addictive and you don’t want to miss everything.
The story surrounds to Tessa Hart, an eighteen year old fangirl of Eric Thorn. She stays only at home, in her room and just listening to Eric’s music as her comfort zone. She’s also meeting a therapist to help her severe anxiety. Tessa creates a Twitter account that holds 30.1k followers and create the hashtag #EricThornObsessed that hit the trends for days. Then, Eric Thorn, a paranoid teenage boy because of what happened to the last singer who murdered by fans. He’s more terrified and he’s fighting back to his paranoia and he creates a fake account to ruin the fangirls including @TessaHeartsEric.
YUP YUP I love this book so much! I seriously can’t help not to read it until the end. I like how the author writes the story from the investigation thingy and how the story flows continues in every interval of those transcripts that made of Tessa and Eric. It helps me to understand what’s really happening between the two characters and the action is not really taking long.
The two characters are both adorable and really chessy on their exchanging messages. They both make me giggle and laugh and I can easily blend in to the story and the happenings in this book. Overall, this is a twisty and I love it so much. No bad things happen and everything seems in perfect timing and place for the mystery. I just knew about the second book and I really can’t wait for more stories.
