Review ~ He's Come Undone by Theresa Weir

He's Come Undone
ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: March 1st 2014

Publisher: Belfry Press

Penniless and behind on rent, college student and once famous child actress Ellie Barlow takes on the role of a lifetime when she's hired by a group of young women to break the heart of the campus player who cruelly dumped them. 

Transformed from slob slacker to jaw-dropping beauty, Ellie is dressed, styled, bleached and waxed, her chunky glasses exchanged for violet contacts. Along with physical prepping, she's coached on Julian's obsessions, which include long-distance running, Doctor Who, and J.D. Salinger. 

In no time, Julian is in pursuit of his custom-made next victim, but when Ellie goes off script and begins to fall for her target the newest broken heart in this risky game could be her own.

My Opinion

This book reminds me so much of the movie John Tucker Must Die but maybe just with a slightly darker undertone. It has torn my opinion as although I enjoyed it and felt that it was a quick, easy read there were a few things I had minor issues with.

I liked the overall concept--although it was pretty close to the movie--as I haven't read it in a book before. You could see how things were going to play out so it gave this book a light, relaxing quality as you didn't have to think too hard when reading it. I also liked that Julian had a past that helped cause the way he was. It gave him a realistic quality and made you feel for him rather than just think he was the ass who went from girl to girl.

The storyline kept me hooked as I wanted to know the full details of the characters' stories and I found it hard to stop reading. There were a few twists I didn't see coming and although there was this slightly darker, more emotional tone to the book I felt that overall the book was a fun read.

There were only a few things I had trouble with and the first what that the characters fell for each other way too quickly. I'm a fan on insta-love but this was even too quick for me. I feel feeling are okay after meeting but to actually want to say 'I love you' was a little too soon considering how long Julian and Ellie had know each other. I did also feel that sections were a little rushed and could have used a bit more development but other than that it was a good read.

Overall, He's Come Undone was an enjoyable, quick read that was good to break up my time. The storyline was interesting and did keep me hooked.
