    What an entertaining read! I've always enjoyed Kristen Simmons books and she continues to write stories that are very easy to sink into. I was drawn to The Deceivers primarily because of the premise of a mysterious elite school, but what kept me glued to the pages was the heroine,...

    I haven't been introduced to a Kristen Simmons book I didn't love and The Deceivers was no different. With nonstop action and intriguing characters, I basically finished The Deceivers in a day. I loved the different layers of this con story; there was Brynn who was trying to escape an ...

    I absolutely adore Kristen Simmons, you guys! I always enjoy everything she writes and this book was no different. Well, itwas very different for Kristen, but I enjoyed it all the same! This is her first contemporary - everything else has been sci-fi. And she rocked it!I loved...

    Warnings: implied parental abuse, mention of child sexual abuse The Deceivers makes good use of its long-game-con premise, delivering twist upon twist as Brynn, a girl from a poor background and a small-time con artist, gets a chance to attend a private school that assures her bette...

    HMM. Listen, this book was yet another excuse to not read KING OF SCARS because I am weak and can?t handle emotions or pain, so if I am honest, I was not. Really. Planning to read this. I mean it was supposed to be a distraction but BOY did that change. To be Frank: this book...

    Really loved this! A school for con artists, with a very clever twist on Norse Mythology. There are no gods and goddesses, but mythology lovers will certainly have a good time picking up on all the references peppered throughout. Full review to come. *ARC received courtesy of the pu...

    Full Review on The Candid Cover The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons is the kind of book I knew I would enjoy the second I read the summary. For starters, the story is about a school for con artists and is filled with secrecy. I especially the unique and twisty plot and the strong main ...

    3.5 stars. This is the kind of mysterious book that you dive into not knowing what?s waiting for you and the kind you close in a completely different state of mind than your initial one. Even if you think you know what?s going to happen, I recommend putting everything you think you...

    This was such an entertaining read! This is the first time I've read a Kristen Simmons and I wasn't disappointed in the least. The Deceivers is about Brynn Hilder who lives a hard life but her luck soon changes when a boy begins following after her. Soon, Brynn stumbles upon a priva...

    Thanks to Netgalley and Macmillian-Tor/Forge for an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review I rarely (if ever)would state this in a book review, but the whole concept of a group of teenagers at an elite con artist school would be electric on television,but failed to initiate any typ...

    Brynn is saving up to go to college - by pulling "Robin Hood" scams - stealing from the rich. She is recruited to Vale Hall school as a result of her larcenous gifts. There, she meets Caleb, who may not be all he seems to be. This is a twisted ride of a story, which is very well writte...

    On the surface, this does not appear to be my usual cup of tea, but Simmons incorporated several elements, that had me chomping at the bit to read this one. 1. Based on Norse mythology 2. Shades of Ocean's 11 3. An elite, top-secret boarding school And let me tell you, these el...

    "But careful isn?t an option. Careful is a luxury you have when your baseline isn?t chaos. When every decision isn?t determined by a calculated risk. In lives like ours, you grasp onto those who understand you, or you face every obstacle alone." This is the first book by Krist...

    This was a fun book! I liked the idea of cons! Brynn was a good character, too. I liked her and learning about her backstory while watching her grow as a character! Caleb, Caleb, Caleb! I loved his character and there were some seriously cute moments. Also, as for other side charact...

    Check Out My Blog: Lili's Blissful Pages This book is marketed as Pretty Little Liars meets Ocean?s 11 and I agree. It sets in Vale Hall, a school for con artists and this is what made me requested this book from Netgalley. I was really intrigued. And it features Brynn Hilder, a t...
