Scandal, romance, treachery, and murder—all under one roof. And no one to clean up their messes. Incriminated is the thrilling second book in the Emancipated trilogy, where limits are pushed, friendships are test, and the truth has a nasty way of showing up uninvited. There’s trouble in paradise. Six teens legally liberated from parental control—the bad boy, the good girl, the diva, the hustler, the rocker, and the nerd—all share a house in Venice Beach and they all have one thing in common: murder. After a streak of hookups, heartbreaks, and bad decisions, the housemates’ once perfect life is falling apart. One is caught in a forbidden romance with a Hollywood hearttrob while another puts her dreams on the line for one little kiss. One harbors a dark truth that could save a life while another’s risky business puts all their lives on the line. And before they know it, the friends are fighting like family. But when an uninvited houseguest and a deadly accident entangle them in a conspiracy none of them saw coming, pulling together is the only way out. Alone, none of them can cover up the lies. Together, none of them can be trusted. Packed with conspiracies, intrigue, and scandalous romance, this gripping sequel told from multiple perspectives will have readers suspecting them all.

Lions, Tigers and Murders, Oh my!

Once again, Reyes, hands us a story full of complex characters, crazy secrets, intrigue, murder and a little bit of romance.

There's a little bit of everything in this story, and it should have been overwhelming but, remarkably, it wasn't.

The characters:There are quite a few. Here's the run down if you're new to this series: There's Lucy--the emo-ish African American, former child star, former addict, and deep secret holder.

Paolo: Resident hottie, future tennis star, crush hider, and best friend-ish to John Michael.

John Michael, is the cook, shoulder to lean on, and possible parent killer.

Grace and Candace--are step sisters, one's a star, the other is pretty normal except she has a secret crush, and she cannot be the only normal person in the house--I don't trust that one bit.

And oh yeah, Candace. Candace is hiding a big secret from Grace--no surprise there. This book is filled with all kinds of secrets and mischief.

And then there's Maya--the quiet one, the youngest one, the one with the biggest secret. She's also something of a computer whiz.

The story: The story picks up right where the last one left off, except the plot just keeps getting bigger, and things just keep getting crazier. Essentially what should have been freeing experience--turned out to be anything but for these teens.

To make a long story short, a lot happens--and I can't talk about any of it because, spoilers.

But there's quite a bit surrounding each and every person and things are no closer to be solved or wrapped up than they were in the first story--well, sort of.

Some of the secrets have come up, but they seemed to open up a can of worms, instead of solving anything. You don't know who to trust--well I didn't. And now they're pretty much on the run.

This book is pretty crazy, the author had no qualms about throwing these teens into a hot boiling mess, but it's entertaining.

Some small part of me feels like something is missing for me to fully connect with the story, (not sure what it is) but I'm always entertained.

This is a great story for people who love their stories with a lot of layers, don't mind that there's not much romance--and love to see things unravel--slowly.
