Out of Control by Sarah Alderson

Out of Control
Blurb (from Goodreads):
When 17 year old Liva witnesses a brutal murder she’s taken into police custody for her own protection. But when the police station is attacked and bullets start flying it becomes clear that Liva is not just a witness, she’s a target.

Together with a car thief called Jay, Liva manages to escape the massacre but now the two of them are alone in New York, trying to outrun and outwit two killers who will stop at nothing to find them.

When you live on the edge, there’s a long way to fall.

Out of Control by Sarah Alderson

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Out of ControlThis was an okay story, but the main characters were just stupid at times.

Liva and Jay were both okay characters on the surface, and I did like them a little bit, but their poor decisions just really started to annoy me after a while. Even when Jay said something intelligent one moment, he then went and did something that totally went against what he said! Why keep doing things that you know will get you caught?

The storyline in this was book was also annoying for the same reason. Even though this pair were trying to evade whoever was after them, they kept doing things that kept alerting the bad guys to where they were and what they were doing! Why go to somewhere where it is obvious that you will go? Why make phone calls that are traceable?

There was some romance, and there was one particularly steamy scene, which was actually pretty entertaining!

The ending to this did have a bit of a twist that I didn’t expect, but it still didn’t make me love this book.
Overall; okay story, but the characters made some stupid decisions.
5 out of 10
