Review: Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger
Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.
When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts.

I was overly excited to get my hands on this book. The synopsis drew me right in. I was expecting a thrilling story full of twists and turns. I thought for sure that this would be one of my favorites of the year...
The blurb does a wonderful job giving you an idea of what the story is about... but that is about it. I honestly had to force myself to finish this book. The delivery and development of this story were lacking.
The characters all seemed like twelve year olds. Nothing they did or said felt true to who they were supposed to be. They were all weak and unlikable.
The format of how this story is told is unique and should have worked for it. I won't lie, I was very disappointed in this story by the time I finished it. I had expected to have my draw dropped at least once, my heart to race at some point... Sadly that just never happened.
