My Review:
Initial Thoughts: A brilliant ending. I have SO MANY FEELS.

For me, this was probably the best book of the series, and I enjoyed it immensely. This was much more fast-paced than previous books and I loved how Jillian tied everything up at the end. While it’s not quite a neat little bow (Brooklyn’s story made me really sad and Riley doesn’t get his HEA but I’m not complaining as he has a spin-off series, yay) it brought a fair amount of happy endings.

Of course, the two main threads were wrapped up in this one – who is Moon boy and did she choose him, and the stalker plotline. It looked like it was going a certain way on the romance and I was feeling an actual pain in my chest but thankfully it all went my way. I had been mad at the other boy for most of this series and one of the things I really liked about Get Me was how Jillian brought me to a point of understanding in that relationship. Both of them thought they were in love, wanted to be in love with one another as they had been crushing so hard in secret for so long but the reality vs the fantasy was very different. Both also had a lot of growing up to do over the series and it was beautiful that they came to the same realization at the same time: They would always love each other and be a part of each other’s lives but only as friends. All my frustration with him melted away at that and, in hindsight, I have to admire how Jillian crafted that relationship.

And I was incredibly happy she chose the right boy because he was perfect for her and with every book I just fell more and more in love with him so I was jumping for joy (even if Keats did give me a heart attack with how she was acting at this part of the story.)

The stalker plotline ended explosively although I think some of those scenes could’ve been a bit more developed but it was great to see Keatyn take control of the situation and take back her life.

Probably the thing I enjoyed most about this series was Keatyn’s development (as well as Aiden because come on, The God of All Hotties!) Keatyn was an immature, spoiled little brat in the first book and she has matured into a responsible, confident young woman who knows what she wants and takes steps to achieve it.

I adored the ending and how Jillian tied in Captive Films and the trilogy on the big screen and I thought it was very cleverly done.

Having read this series now, I can happily recommend it. I loved the angst-driven romance throughout this series and all the love interests were fun even if I was frustrated at certain points. It meanders a bit in some of the books and the stalker aspect could’ve been executed better but for swoony romance and high-school drama, it gets ten out of ten. Overall series rating: 4 stars.

Actual Rating for Get Me – 4.5 stars.

As an aside, I’ve hummed and hawed over whether to comment on the pricing because, as an author myself, I always try to maintain respect in my reviews. I understand how much work goes into writing, publishing, and marketing a book. However, I feel strongly that this series is overpriced and it’s the one thing holding me back from reading the spin-off Captive Films series. I don’t usually read any e-books priced more than £3.99/$4.99 as it’s my cut off point and I only ended up reading this series because I picked up the first three books in a boxset for £5.49. I wish they were cheaper, and my personal belief is the author would sell more books in this series if she lowered the prices a little. I mean no disrespect when I say this.

I did pick up Fame a few months back for 99p so I’m going to read that even though I’m scared it will suck me in like this series did and I won’t be able to stop myself from one-clicking the rest.
