"In sunny Southern California, seventeen-year-old Ruby Rose is known for her killer looks and her killer SAT scores. But ever since her dad, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, died, she's also got a few killer secrets.Wow! I so need to start reading and reviewing books again. I'm wayyyy behind!
To cope, Ruby has been trying to stay focused on school (the top spot in her class is on the line) and spending time with friends (her Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks are nothing if not loyal). But after six months of therapy and pathetic parenting by her mom, the District Attorney, Ruby decides to pick up where her dad left off and starts going after the bad guys herself.
When Ruby ends up killing a murderer to save his intended victim, she discovers that she's gone from being the huntress to the hunted. There's a sick mastermind at play, and he has Ruby in his sights. Ruby must discover who's using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up swapping Valentino red for prison orange.
With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl's forced to kill, won't the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?"
Killing Ruby Rose is a wild ride from the beginning to the end. It is mostly for fans of Ally Carter's books and other espionage books. Chick-lit and Mystery fans will most certainly like it too.
And this review is going to be quick. But I'll try to not put too much random things in here. Because you all know how random I sometimes get. And I don't like removing those random things. Like this paragraph, which is completely random.
Anyway, I read this book because I won a giveaway for the second book, Resisting Ruby Rose. I'm going to say that this one is great. I really enjoyed it. The romance between Ruby Rose and Liam is wonderful (though somewhat strange; a bit lacking). It reminds me of that way two people get together because of a crush.
Anyway, Ruby Rose is an awesome girl. She is basically a teenage version of Nancy Drew. With very interesting parents and a very smart, intelligent brain. (Well, Nancy Drew is pretty smart, too. Especially with her brain). Ruby Rose is deadly as she is pretty. She is a great narrator, and it doesn't hurt that she is very understandable and relatable. Even though she can pull off killer moves and get into fights against men.
Plus, she kills murderers.
The plot goes by really quickly. It is perhaps a 300 paged book, and the plot is fast. It is really interesting from beginning to end, and I think most readers would enjoy this.
(Although romance is lacking).
Overall, Ruby Rose is a great book to read. Especially when you are bored, because Ruby Rose's little Nancy Drew mystery is awesome. Plus, there is some interesting things in here that I find quite entertaining. Some parts of the the book.
