Cassie @ Happy Book Lovers - I’ve had my eye on this one since I saw the cover because it really stands out to me. And I think it’s kind of fun to read a book with lots of different opinions! It was fun reading your POVs! 🙂

Alexa S. - Kiss Kill Vanish was a pretty fun surprise for me! I didn’t expect to be swept up in this book, but I totally was. Martinez delivers a pretty solid mystery/thriller type tale, and I can’t wait to read more of her stuff!

Jess @ Gone with the Words - A thing with feet that grossed you out and almost made you cry? That sounds terrible! LOL And I’m not sure I want to find out what it is! But aside from that, you guys have me totally on the fence about this one. I have yet to read one of her books. Something about the author having my name really weirds me out and is part of the reason why I haven’t read any of her books yet. Totally dumb, but there you have it. lol

February 13, 2014 - 3:15 pm

Alexa S. - I have yet to read a Jessica Martinez book, though all of the ones she’s written (Virtuosity, The Vow and now Kiss Kill Vanish) are on my TBR. This cover is GORGEOUS. I love the splash of color!

Racquel - I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! Virtuosity is one of my favorite covers and The Vow is really unique but THIS takes the crown. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And YAAAAY more YA thrillers!!!!!!!

February 13, 2014 - 9:42 am

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - THAT COVER! I’m obsessed. It’s gorgeous and seems to fit the summary very well, which is equally as awesome.

To be honest, the only book I’ve read by Jessica is VIRTUOSITY, but I loved it. Yet another gorgeous cover with an equally amazing story inside. 🙂

February 12, 2014 - 1:02 pm

fishgirl182 - I’ve only read Virtuosity so I’ll have to go with that. But this one looks amazing. Thanks for the giveaway!

February 11, 2014 - 3:55 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I am so curious about this book! I love her other books (still have to read The Space Between Us) but this seems so different. Intriguing, but still, very different.

February 11, 2014 - 12:38 pm

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I have never read a Jessica Martinez book! I’ve been super interested in Virtuosity, and I even own The Vow. I have just not gotten to it. This one sounds amazing, and I love the cover! Can’t wait to read it!

February 11, 2014 - 12:08 am

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - Oh my I love this cover! The colours are so vibrant. I’ve only ever read The Vow, but she won me over with that alone. Her writing, the care she has for each character…it’s flawless. And I always hear amazing things about Virtuosity!

February 10, 2014 - 11:31 pm

Amy - I love the cover and excerpt for this . Thanks for the giveaway

February 10, 2014 - 10:12 pm

Skye @ Skye's Scribblings - I have yet to read anything by Ms. Martinez, but I’m DYING to read The Vow – I’ve heard nothing but awesome things! And this has to be one of the best covers EVER – and I love the title! Really looking forward to this one!

February 10, 2014 - 1:53 pm

Brittany @ the Book Addict's Guide - YA thriller say what!? You know I love those!
I actually haven’t read any of her books yet but I’ve seen SUCH good things about them. I’m definitely excited for KISS KILL VANISH and to pick up some older titles as well! *fingers crossed*

February 10, 2014 - 1:03 pm

Tammy - I haven’t read a Jessica Martinez book yet. I guess I need to remedy that soon.

February 10, 2014 - 12:43 pm

Andrea - My favorite book by Jessica has been “The Space Between Us”. It was amazing!

February 10, 2014 - 11:37 am

Denise Jaden - Oh yeah, favorite… it’s a tough one, but I’d probably maybe still go with Virtuosity. Favorite opening to a novel ever!

February 10, 2014 - 11:35 am

Denise Jaden - I NEED this book. Then I’ll have a “Jessica Martinez” shelf on my my bookcase (3 books isn’t quite enough for a shelf, but FOUR!)Also, this cover is beautiful and brilliant.

February 10, 2014 - 10:35 am

Shelby Brown - This cover is really cool! I will have to check out this book!

February 10, 2014 - 10:21 am

February 10, 2014 - 9:46 am

Ron Smith - This is an absolutely incredible cover. I love the typography.

Hey, the story doesn’t sound bad, either.

February 10, 2014 - 9:38 am

Dahlia - Oh my Godddddd I love this cover and this blurb and just NEED IT IMMEDIATELY. My favorite JM book so far is VIRTUOSITY but I have a feeling this one could give it a serious run for its money!

February 10, 2014 - 9:33 am

Barbara - I love the new cover and can’t wait to read this book! I love Jessica’s style of writing and I’m excited to see what this slightly darker novel has to offer us.

February 10, 2014 - 9:27 am

Ginger @ GReads! - First, this cover is AWESOME. I love the black & white and then the huge splash of color. Very, very eye-catching. Second, this story sounds dark, mysterious, and something I definitely need to read. Which is crazy because normally I shy away from “scary” books. Nope, not this one! And third, Virtuosity is my favorite JM book. That story really resonated with me and it’s definitely one I continue to recommend. Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

February 10, 2014 - 9:17 am

Shae/Shelver @ Shae Has Left The Room - I don’t have one (yet.) I’m hoping KISS KILL VANISH will fix that for me!

February 10, 2014 - 9:15 am

My favorite Jessica Martinez book is Virtuosity. <3
