Review: The Deception of Devin Miller by Kelly Martin


One month ago, seventeen year old Devin Miller wrecked while intoxicated— or so she’s told by the sightly ticked off blue-eyed boy when she wakes up from a coma. The only thing Devin remembers is the darkness holding her down and the voices-- some happy, some upset, and one very agitated. She can't remember her name, her age, where she lives, or who in the world the blue-eyed boy is. But he knows her and against her better judgment, she offers to pay him for his memories so she can trick the ones closest to her into thinking she's fine. 

That is her first mistake.

When Devin gets home, the deception is harder than she thought. People she doesn't know keep talking to her. Trey (the blue-eyed boy) doesn't show up like he said he would. And the police want to talk to her about her involvement with the car accident. Plus she keeps seeing flashes of the wreck, but none of them make sense. What would a red plastic cup have to do with anything? And why can't she seem to trust the people she is supposed to trust the most?

Facing DUI charges for a wreck she can't recall, Devin fights to remember exactly what happened the night of the crash: something the real driver desperately wants her to forget permanently.

Who is really doing the deceiving?

My Review
This is an old review of mine that was on my GoodReads but I forgot to add to my blog!

3.5 Stars!

What would you do if you woke up in hospital and didn't know how you got there?
How do you trust people you don't remember?

Devin Miller is 17 years old,a rich, popular girl or that's who she was..
When Devin wakes up in the hospital and cant remember who she is,things go from bad to worse.
She finds out by a slightly annoyed blue eyed boy that she has just come out of a coma and she had crashed her car whilst intoxicated..

Devin cant remember her parents, or all her so called friends..she cant even remember her name..
But she doesn't want anyone to know that she has amnesia..

What if they lie to her? Trick her into believing things that aren't true about herself?

She decides to ask blue eyed boy, Trey to help her act like she remembers everything..
Paying Trey for her memories seemed like a good idea at the time but when she returns home and there is a party for her, all she wants to do is go to her bedroom and sleep..
But where is her bedroom?
And where the hell is Trey?

As days go by Devin keeps getting flashbacks of the accident but it doesn't seem to connect with what she has been told..
What really happened? Was she really that reckless to drink and drive? Or was there more to it?

Who is really doing the deceiving?

This was a quick, fast-paced read, I was hooked right from the start and loved all the twists and turns in the story.
Everyone was keeping secrets and each secret was destroying lives..

I liked Trey he was funny and always there when things went wrong but I wanted to know more about him! I wanted the story to carry on..maybe a series? :D
I really enjoyed all the suspense and trying to figure out what happened, it was like a puzzle, putting all the pieces together!
Great job Kelly Martin!
