Secrets by Liz Schulte

Secrets (Guardian Trilogy)
by Liz Schulte

 While Olivia Martin observed life through her camera, the abyss gazed back at her. She discovers mysterious men follow her around, people close to her are dying, and her dreams are no longer her own as she falls head over heels for a perfect stranger. A chance encounter leads to an obsession that could destroy everything she has ever known or loved. Olivia is about to find out there is a lot she doesn't know and sometimes what you don't know can kill you.

My thoughts:
            Liz can really write a dark character that you fall in love with. I was so engrossed with what would happen next that it carried my happily to the end, where I was begging for more! I have to say that the dreams were really cool and I loved Holden.  I would have totally given this book four stars, but there was quite a bit of grammatical errors: words missing, misspelling character’s (Liv, Livi) and thing’s (Jinn, Jinni) names, and some confusing sentences. It pulled me out of the story, so I have to give it three stars, but I really loved the word Liz has created! Excited for book two!
Note: Swearing, drinking, and a brief sex scene. I would rate this R, mostly for all the swearing.
Amendment: I talked with the author after I posted this and she cleared up a few things for me so here is what she said, "You mention I misspell some "character names and things" and on that point I would like to note that both Liv and Livi are Olivia's nicknames. Mostly Juliet called her Livi when she is feeling irritated and Liv any other time. And Jinn is the plural and jinni is the singular form of the noun." Thanks Liz for helping us understand those points of the novel!
