Prettyboy Must Die: A Novel

We rated this book:

$17.99

Spy books are always fun and entertaining. Prettyboy Must Die was one that could have either been a hit or miss for me. Unfortunately, it was neither. I didn’t like it, but I also didn’t hate it. The writing is simplistic in prose and style, but being inside Jake aka Peter’s head was a bit of a mess. Especially when he got all Sherlock Holmes on us. Which wasn’t as terrible as I’m making it out to be. I just couldn’t understand Peter’s way of thinking. Prettyboy is an undercover CIA prodigy until his cover is blown when someone snaps his photo while he’s running around at night. As you have guessed and already know, the photo goes viral, blowing his cover in the process. Cue the action. Jake/Peter is a character I could have easily loved, but his whole attitude kind of ruined it for me. He’s arrogant and treats everyone like dirt. That action I said earlier was minimal at best. Meaning it was pretty anticlimactic. I can see where the author wanted to go with the storyline, but in the end it just didn’t work for me. We need more diverse reads, and that’s one thing I truly loved about the book. It had great representation.
