Fractured by Teri Terry Review and My GIVEAWAY!

Fractured (Slated, #2)

How do you know where to go when you don't remember where you came from?
Kyla's memory has been erased,her personality wiped blank,her memories lost for ever.

Or so she thought.
Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes...

Set in a disturbing future world, FRACTURED is an engrossing, fast-paced read that establishes Teri Terry as a master thriller writer.

My Review
So as many of you may know, if you've read any of my earlier posts you will have seen that I received an Advanced Copy of Fractured by Teri Terry a few weeks ago!
Unfortunately, school and exams and concerts (because I am a musician) made my reading life a littttlleee crazy, however a couple of days ago I FINALLY finished Fractured!
This book is over 400 pages of fast-paced, heart-thumping genius, which I could have very easily devoured in one sitting.
Yet again, Teri manages to pull on the heart strings of her readers and drag them through the emotional rollercoaster of the Kyla/Ben, Kyla/Nico, Kyla/Everybody story which Fractured follows!
I must admit, I missed Ben a lot.
I loved Ben in Slated, and whilst he is younger than me (sigh) I can't help but base some of the traits I look for in a future partner because of Ben. I have an image of this guy as Ben.

But that miiiight be because I REALLY REALLY fancy Alex Pettyfer.
So without Ben in Fracture, I miss him lots! (Don't worry girlies, he is still there, just not as prominant).
However you have the GORGEOUS (untrustworthy now-hated) Nico to fancy, as he is described as being mouth-watering, unimaginably hot.
Why is it that men are never as hot in real life as they are in books? Any theories? Anyone?
The story in Fractured is pretty complicated and there is actually a fantastic twist. At first I can't decide what side to be on, and I just sort of follow whatever Kyla chooses, kind of like a new-Slated, as I'm unable to make decisions by myself. However as Kyla uncovers secrets that were hidden away and slated along with her memory, I feel as though I am also finding myself, at least as far as the novel goes.
There were points I wanted to cry as I realised what was going on, especially when parents were brought into the scenario.
Admittedly, I did cry.
It was heartbreaking, and I hate Teri Terry for it, however I love her for resolving feelings that I felt so confused about!
Teri's writing is smooth, unpredictable and leaves the reader needing more.
Good luck topping that! I can not WAIT for the final installment of this thrilling series.
Bring on 2014!
