Hey, Nerdy Peeps! I have a ton of reviews to get out on the blog for you, so instead of a mental health post, today I am going to bring you my book review for Bubblegum by Sari Taurez! Hang on to your pants, this one is a wild ride.
Bubblegum by Sari Taurez
Tiana is your typical pampered young blonde with a love for expensive shoes, hot guys, and murder.
After Tiana is cut off from her family’s riches, she takes advantage of her talents and becomes a killer for hire. It’s a lucrative business in her country, where a call to the police can amount to a lifetime of debt.
Her first client: Julia, a lower-class IT genius, lesbian, and devout Catholic. When the orphanage Julia volunteers at is targeted by the infamous brothel-owner Bobby Nails, Tiana is excited to take the job. But when she discovers Bobby Nails has a full army of mercenaries at his disposal, Tiana wonders if she may be in over her head.
Tiana and Julia face an unexpected adventure as they seek vengeance against the elusive Nails. Along the way, they are joined by Ruby, a pyromaniac ex-prostitute who catches Julia’s eye, and William, a mysterious acrobatic fugitive searching for his daughter.
In the end, will they be enough to stop Nails and the chaos he has created?
My Review of Bubblegum!
From the very first sentence, I was hooked. Sari takes you on the ride of your life through the pages of Bubblegum. This book is set in a dystopian world and it was perfect for the story. Now, when you are a level 2 ranks, you should come from money. That is until you get cut-off and have to have a means of keeping your rank. So, what do you do? You become a killer for hire!
When I saw the word murder, I was figuring this book would be a book about murdering anyone who got in her way. But instead, Tiana wanted to be a vigilante for those who couldn’t take care of themselves. Oh, and it’s not the bubblegum you’re thinking about. It’s a pink pistol with the name of Bubblegum! I mean how cool is that!?
This book gave me a run for my money, I loved every second! It was not an easy book to put down and I read well past my bedtime. Sari also did an amazing job of giving us a diversity of characters, that were all easy to fall in love with. Oh, and the hot guys will have you drooling, so read with a napkin.
So, if you love murder, sexy characters, and bubble, then this is a must read!
