All In: (The Naturals #3) - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Cold Water by Theory of a Deadman  --This song speaks of the dynamic between Cassie, Dean, Lia, Sloan and Michael, and how they are there for each other.  Holding each other up.  I picked the version of this song by TOAD over Justin Bieber & Co. because TOAD is one of my all time favorites, although it's a really crappy lyric video, if only I had the time to make my own.♫

My Thoughts

 

This book rocked, it has this wonderful dynamic of five characters, who I feel like I come to know with each book.  I love how every little thing in each story is intertwined.  Each book, so far, gets more intense, more crazy and overall, it's just an amazing series.  I highly recommend!

Monster You Made by Pop Evil  --For Dean…the backstory between Dean and his father that we learn about in this installment is completely captivating.

♫Erase this monster I've become

It's not over

Say it's not over

I'm begging for mercy

I'm only the monster you made me♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I'm loving this series so far.  A mash between Alias and Profiler, but with teens.  This series would make for a great TV show. 

With both the probability and the improbability of The Naturals program addressed in this book, it has me completely hooked.  A well thought out plot intertwined with a thought-provoking mystery and some very interesting characters.  The Naturals Series grabs you and doesn't let you go…not even when you get to the end of each installment.  I'm definitely ready for the next one.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ It's talked about, but this is actually quite clean.

Bad Blood - 5 Stars
Bad Blood (The Naturals #4) ((The Naturals #4)) - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Everything came full circle in this book. Lia got some closure. Michael was freed from his father. Cassie found her mother. Okay, granted she killed her. But she found her. Silver lining. And it wasn't her choice anyway so... We get to learn so much about Cassie's past with her mother. Was shocked by the director's involvement! Hello! Did not see that coming. Glad he's out of the picture. Cassie gets to be with her family and the other Naturals which is great now that she knows what happened to her mother. And Dean! My boy Dean. He didn't play as much of a role in this one, but I love that he supported Cassie like she did for him in the second book. He gave up control, which for him was hard after his father, but he trusted her. You just didn't know who to trust in this one and it was great.

Bad Blood Book Review
Bad Blood (The Naturals #4) ((The Naturals #4)) - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I love this series. It ends really well in this fourth novel. In all of them I was never bored. I really really want more YA meets criminal minds thriller/mystery series. These are so much better than Malice and Girl in Pieces.

 

Cassie and her friends are back and trying to solve more murders. But this time they hit close to home. Now that she knows her mother is alive, Cassie is hoping to get one step closer to finally finding out the truth.

 

A big part of why I love this series is because I really love all the characters from Cassie to Michael to Dean to Sloane and the other Naturals. Getting in the minds of the unsubs is pretty thrilling, again think Criminal Minds for YA. It does close things very nicely but leaves a little wiggle room for more, especially if we had new characters and unsubs.

 

One of my favorite reads this year and highly highly recommend.
