"Chasing the Skip" (A Criminal Lexi Review)

Hey, readers,

It's a bit late thanks to an impromptu girls' night, lol. But I need to post this, so here we go!

Summary (Thank you, Goodreads!): "Ricki’s dad has never been there for her. He’s a bounty hunter who spends his time chasing parole evaders—also known as “skips”—all over the country. But now since Ricki’s mom ran off, Ricki finds herself an unwilling passenger in a front-row seat to her father’s dangerous lifestyle.

            Ricki’s feelings get even more confused when her dad starts chasing seventeen-year-old Ian Burnham. She finds herself unavoidably attracted to the dark-eyed felon who seems eager to get acquainted. But Ricki thinks she’s ever in control—the perfect manipulator. Little does she know that Ian isn’t playing their game by her rules."

So the mood for this novel is very good. From the beginning, we know that Ricki isn't impartial, so she is unexpected. I love this small novel where she has a father who cares (but is a little to late) even though her mother is neglectful.

The characters are whole and understandable, as well as relatable. The events are quite believable, and you're on a wild ride with this novel!

In Conclusion: Read it! It's a good little novel for a light reading, rainy day.
