My rating: 5 stars

Three teens venture into the abandoned Monroe estate one night; hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding; the other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder?

Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece together the story of how they got there-a story of jealousy, twisted passion, and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful of faces…


First let me start this review by saying that Abigail Haas is an absolute freaking genius, she knows how to keep readers hooked and twist the story so that you never see the ending coming. She done this with Dangerous Girls and she proves to us in Dangerous Boys that even though you may think you know what’s going to happen, you don’t.

I don’t want to come DB to DG because they are two completely different stories with two completely different twists. Really the only similarities that I could find between the two is the layout of the story, they both alternate between Then and Now, and the fact that they are both thrillers, that’s about as far as they go with the similarities. Dangerous Boys is the sequel to Dangerous Girls but like I said, they are two completely different stories so you don’t have to read DG first. Although I HIGHLY recommend reading DG at some point because it is absolutely amazing.

Dangerous Boys follows Chloe who has just finished high school and has big plans for her future, she’s leaving for college in a month and she’s getting out of her small hometown. Well, she was but the life happens and she’s forced to put college off and that’s when she meets Ethan. Ethan is everything a boyfriend should be, he has a good job, he’s caring and kind and he treats Chloe like a princess. Then his brother, Oliver, shows up and let’s just say that things start to get interesting and intense from there.

I can’t say much about the plot without spoiling the whole book so I’ll just say this, it’s a total mind f*ck. Going into this book I thought that since I read DG, I could watch for clues and have everything figured out before it happened…NOPE! I wasn’t even close and once again Haas blew my mind with her twists.

Dangerous Boys is a dark, twisty, mind blowing, thrill ride. If you liked DG, then you are sure to enjoy Chloe’s story. And if you haven’t read either of these books, trust me when I say, you don’t know what you’re missing.
