The Forbidden Game: The Hunt - L.J. Smith

Something supercalifragilisticexpialidocious about L. J. Smith is that she wrote the Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, both awesome television shows. 

Now this book needs to be made into a movie or something because I fell in love with it, at least the first part anyways. 

In Kindle stores, it comes of a bundle of all three books: The Hunt; The Chase; and The Kill.

Do I recommend this book specifically: Yes because not only is it a good laugh for anytime of the day and it is perfect for YA readers.

Synopsis for The Hunt: Jenny wants to get her boyfriend, Tom, a special game for his birthday party.  However, she can’t help but be fascinated by the boy with the white-blond hair who sells her a strange game as a present.  It turns out that the boy, Julian, is the youngest of those from the Shadow Lands, a race of evil beings who live invisibly just beside our own world.  Once Jenny opens the game, she is in his land.  Julian is determined to seduce her, but he has to work by a set of inflexible rules, only touching Jenny where she has reached for him.  In the fantasy house that Julian has created, where everyone at the party must face their greatest fear, Julian himself is Jenny’s worst nightmare. . . and maybe her dream lover, as well.

Synopsis for The Chase: Jenny begins to get terrifying phone calls and soon it’s clear that Julian is loose is the real world.  More and more, Jenny falls under his spell, allowing herself the freedom to do as she likes, no matter the consequences.  It seems that Jenny has chosen Julian over Tom.  But then her friends are disappearing, sucked into the Shadow Lands, paper dolls left in their places.  Can Jenny outwit Julian without giving in to his demands entirely?

Synopsis for The Kill: Jenny returns to the place where it all began; her grandfather’s house, where as a child she first met the child-Julian.  A door with a strange rune on it opens to the most fantastic creation of Julian’s of all: an empty amusement park that Jenny loved as a child.  Except here, all the rides are deadly.  More, Jenny must survive her confrontations with an increasingly frustrated and determined Julian.  Will he really kill her if he can’t have her?  Jenny forces him to make the choice—and two worlds are changed forever.
XOXO fellow readers. Please read this book! You'll love it and face your worst fears coming to life.
