{Book Review} Paying the Hitchhiker

It's Review Day!!!!!!!!!!

Author: Regina Puckett
Rating: 3 stars

Book Blurb:
Jennifer and Jason pick up a pretty young lady heading in the same direction they are going. Surely at some point their mothers told them never to talk to strangers or let one get in the car with them. What happens next will be told around campfires for years to come as a cautionary tale.

 ** Some small spoilers contained.**

This was... interesting.  I didn't get quite what I was expecting, but I'm not sure if that is good or bad.  The main charactes are NOT Jennifer and Jason.  It's the hitchhiker.  This book contained sexual content that I was not expecting - bad for readers who don't like that type of content; not terrible for me, since I don't mind.  HOLY SMOKES did this book throw me for a loop.  I was expecting a huge plot twist, but this one didn't make sense until the end.

The book was super short - also wasn't expecting that.  Regina did a great job with the writing, I was definitely stuck and still (two days later) have this book on my brain.  My rating is undecided because of all the surprises.  Why make the blurb about two side characters?  The Mom being okay with the ending was odd too, but I get it.

Alright. The more I think about this book the more I understand it.  I liked it.  The twists were weird, but good.  It's well written.  I wish it was longer!  I got caught up in it and actually felt a little sad when I was done.  My other thoughts still stand - why make the blurb sound like J&J are the mains but they aren't?  I dunno. It's a good quick read.

Ugh! Guys! Please read this novel and tell me if I'm crazy!  It's only $.99.  Please!  Happy Review Day.
