Blog Tour: Cut Here - Azzurra Nox + Review!!

Cut Here By Azzurra Nox 
Release Date: 02/13/15 
YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy 

Book Summary: 
Sixteen-year-old Lena Martin's idyllic world shatters the night her mother dies due to a hit and run accident. Two years later, her dad relocates her from Italy to Los Angeles to help her put behind the time spent in a psychiatric ward following her mother's death. But the move only proves to be a fatal mistake. Shortly after her arrival, the classmates of her new private school begin to commit suicide under mysterious circumstances after reading a cult book called Cut Here. Determined to unravel the mystery behind the suicides, she bands together with loner Jonathan Russe and outcast Hope Peters to figure out exactly what is happening, not realizing that this places them under a dangerous radar. During this same time, Lena falls for a mysterious and attractive guy named Michael, who is as equally disarming as he's dangerous. As her attraction grows, so does the body count at St. Lucy Academy. Soon, Lena needs to decide whether to stay away from the guy she's falling for, or to trust him. Is Michael behind the suicides, or is he the key that can unlock the mystery that can stop the bloodshed? Deceptions run high and Lena soon learns that nothing is what it seems.

**I received a copy of this book for free through YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Any thoughts and opinions are my own.** 

I would first like to comment on the beautiful cover of this book. It is absolutely gorgeous and is what initially drew me in to read this book. I was really intrigued by the overall story and I definitely was not disappointed. Cut Here did remind me a little of the movie, The Ring, a little but in a good way. The concept was similar but Cut Here definitely held it's own. 

It's so hard for me to review this book without giving away any spoilers because my favorite parts of the book are probably the most important parts. I loved that this story wasn't told from just one point of view and allowed the readers to get to know the characters through the opinions of several of the other characters. One person might be a bitch from one perspective but then might be a nice person with some issues from another's perspective. It was an interesting way to tell the story and see how it all unfolded. 

The story itself was dark and mysterious. I felt like the plot may have crawled along in some parts, though. I also didn't really like the triangle between Lena, Jon, and Michael. I didn't feel like it really added to the story. It felt more like a filler than something that was important to the suicides and what was happening to the people that were reading the Cut Here book. And Lena seemed like she was able to hold her own until these two guys came into the picture and then she kind of faltered and seemed like she needed to be the damsel in distress which just kind of turned me off from her for a little bit. 

Overall, this book is well written, creepy, and will have you wondering if YOU'RE actually crazy. I'm a big chicken so I couldn't read it in the dark or if I was at home alone. The suspense kept up a certain level of tension throughout the whole book and there were some plot twists that made me ask "What the hell?" out loud. I will be keeping my eye out for more from Azzurra Nox!
