Catching cheaters and liars is a lucrative hobby―until you fall for one of the suspects. Perfect for fans of Veronica Mars, this new novel from the author of Last Year’s Mistake will steal your heart!

Marisa never planned to be a snoop for hire. It wasn’t like she wanted to catch her best friend’s boyfriend making out with another girl. But as her reputation for sniffing out cheaters spreads all over school, Marisa finds herself the reluctant queen of busting two-timing boys.

And her next case? It’s for ex-frenemy Kendall. She’s convinced her boyfriend, TJ, has feelings for someone else and persuades Marissa to start spying on him. But the more Marisa gets to know sincere and artistic TJ, the more she starts to fall for him. Worse yet, the feelings seem to be mutual. Marisa knows she needs to give up her investigation―and the spoken-for guy who may just be the love of her life. Then she uncovers new secrets about Kendall and TJ, secrets that take “cheater” to a whole new level…

Opening Sentence: “SCALING THE BACK OF A HOUSE SPIDER-MAN STYLE HADN’T BEEN PART of my Saturday night plans.”


Busted is an easy breezy all around good time kind of read. Looking back on it a lot of it is quite comical in the best of ways. So much hiding and drama come together to create a novel anyone could enjoy!

Things happen in this novel that border on insanity all because of a happenstance at the beginning of the novel. As the story progresses things get more and more complicated in unique and fun ways and I found it difficult to put this book down!

Busted is one of those novels that I don’t want to say too much about because everything connects and it’s so much fun to experience for yourself. I could see this being an amazing romantic comedy of sorts as a movie. The extent that Marisa goes to to catch a boy in the act of cheating is impressive and as she gets closer to Kendall’s boyfriend TJ, things get increasingly complicated.

I adore Busted. It’s such a fantastic read that I highly recommend!
