Their online nightmare is becoming their offline reality....

No one knows what happened to pop icon Eric Thorn. His Twitter account? Frozen. His cell phone? Cracked and bloody, buried in the snow.

Tessa Hart knows the truth, but she's finally left her #EricThornObsessed days behind. She has no intention of ever touching her Twitter app again. But SnapChat...That's safer, right?

Agoraphobic fangirl Tessa Hart has finally left her house—only to trade one hiding place for another. But she can only stay out of sight for so long before she's forced to face the deadly consequences of the past.

Back in an interrogation room, answers only lead to more questions in the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Follow Me Back duology.

Praise for Follow Me Back:
"Timely, twisty, and totally thrilling." —Paula Stokes, author of Liars, Inc. and Vicarious
"The next big thing in YA thrillers." —Ali Novak, author of The Heartbreak Chronicles and My Life with the Walter Boys

After I had finished this book, I didn’t know that there was another one in the series. They may or may not affect my review. With that being said let me start my review. This book was really interesting. I haven’t read anything like it. I’m going to have to go back an read the first one now to get the full affect of Tessa and Eric’s story. Tessa and Eric both have interesting attributes about them. Tessa has Agoraphobia and Eric is a pop star. These two characters together make an amazing pair. This book deals with some major issues like mental health, bullying and much more. It’s all relevant to today and I loved that about this book. I loved that this book had a happy ending. Kinda hoped for more but it did do It justice. *** I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review***

I was lucky enough to score an early copy of Follow Me Back, the first book in this series, and let me tell you, I loved it. This series is the type of guilty pleasure that isn't really a guilty pleasure because after you read it, you're telling the whole world about it. In the first book, Tessa Hart had the chance to meet Eric Thorn, the biggest heartthrob in the world, and not only did they meet, but they fell in love, and Tessa seemed to be on her way to living the kind of life only available in fanfics. But the ending of that book was, shall we say, not so much of a happy ending. Or was it? {Cue dramatic mystery music.} ***WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD*** Tessa has been in hiding for months, without her meds, without her therapist, without her agoraphobia running her life, living in a small RV with none other than Eric Thorn himself. After so long of being in the spotlight and hating most of that time, Eric had decided to get away from it all, and Tessa wholeheartedly helped. But once they're discovered, Eric knows that in order to protect Tessa from her crazy stalker, he'll have to go back to the life that he hated. This time around, though, Maury, Eric's manager, keeps his only client busy, so busy that Tessa is slowly being pushed into the background. But when Tessa is put in harms way, Eric realizes what he has to do, and he has some help from the last place on earth that he would imagine he would find it. I mentioned in my post about Follow Me Back that Twitter is pretty scary. I take that back. Twitter is downright terrifying. There are horrible people on there, people who seemingly have nothing better to do with their lives than tear other down. Eric knows this firsthand, and even an account dedicated to him seems to be at the forefront of wanting Eric Thorn to fall flat on his face. I don't pretend to understand the obsession with celebrities, and I understand the obsession with hoping they fall from grace even less. This whole series is dedicated to the kind of "fan accounts" that are only there to watch their "favorite" celebrity have run-ins with the law, fall on their faces, and generally lead horrible lives. It's completely understandable that Eric Thorn fakes his own death and leave the country for awhile. Celebrity obsession has reached an alarming new high {new low?}, and Eric Thorn wants nothing to do with it. Mental health issues are also at the very center of this novel. In the first book, Tessa suffered from severe agoraphobia, living inside her house and inside her mind. Twitter was a place for her to feel like she was in the real world, until it became all too real. Although he is never officially diagnosed, we can see that Eric Thorn is a ball of anxiety, and Tessa sees this too, knowing all too well how anxiety can rule your life. A.V. Geiger writes about these issues as if she knows them, too. Never once does Tessa seem to forget about her anxiety or agoraphobia, like can happen with certain authors and their characters. Even while Tessa and Eric grow, their anxiety and agoraphobia and brains are always there.  In short, I read this book too fast and didn't realize it was a duology. Here I was, thinking that Tessa and Eric would be back in a matter of time, ready to thrill me with a new adventure. I liked the ending of this one, because it was open enough to allow for a third book, if ever {IF EVER}, but also the kind of ending that let me imagine what happens to the characters. I like those, because that me

I absolutely adored Follow Me Back and was super excited to get an advanced copy of Tell Me No Lies from the publisher. It didn't disappoint. It's hard to review this book without giving away any spoilers, but if you couldn't get enough of Follow Me Back you'll be thrilled with this sequel. Tell Me No Lies begins right where the first book left off, and you're immediately thrown into the action with Tessa and Eric Thorn who are currently battling police investigations, a new mystery, and the pitfalls of fame. This book held my attention the whole time, and kept me flipping pages as the plot twisted and surprised me. It was a perfect YA thriller with romance you can count on, social media themes done really well, and likable characters.

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. At the end of the first book, FOLLOW ME BACK, I was screaming because I wanted more. This book delivered and I love it as much as I did the first one. Eric and Tessa's were forced to come out of hiding and had to reestablish themselves. Eric and Tessa had their individual challenges that they had to overcome which flowed into their relationship as well. These characters are relatable and I really liked their growth throughout the book. This book kept my attention and the pacing was spot on. I really loved that the author continued to write in both Tessa and Eric's perspectives. I was completely taken off guard by who was creating the friction between Tessa and Eric but totally loved the ending. If you haven't read the first book, FOLLOW ME BACK, you have to and then you have to immediately read this book. You will not be disappointed.

I couldn’t believe that I was able to get an ARC of this! Follow Me Back was one of my favorite books that gripped me from beginning to end. Let’s not even get started on the ending! When I started to read this I was a bit disappointed that it was just so anti-climatic. It’s the anticipation of it and being upset it’s over. The story continues on with more deceit and stalkers and untrustworthy people. People did and there are some that try to set people up. Everyone is deceiving everyone! What an amazing sequel. Nothing is what it appears. And the scariest person may just be the superhero.

After the epic cliffhanger that was Follow Me Back, I’ve been dying for answers so I was super excited to get an ARC of this sequel, Tell Me No Lies. Geiger definitely didn’t disappoint! Without giving away too much, many of the questions we were left with in Follow Me Back were (thankfully) answered fairly early in the story but just as quickly, they were replaced with new ones. The author displays an incredible talent for drawing the reader in that makes for the kind of book you accidentally stay up all night reading. There are not many other authors that I have read that manage to genuinely surprise me but Geiger gets me every time. She has mastered the most subtle art of foreshadowing. The kind that isn’t immediately detectable as you’re reading but once the bomb drops, makes you think back & wonder why you didn’t see it coming. Fortunately, we readers aren’t alone with that feeling...the two central characters in Tell Me No Lies are subjected to the same type of “how did I miss it?” moment on multiple occasions. When we leave Tessa & Eric this time, it is with much more closure than the first book but with just enough left up in the air to leave room for another installment. I am looking forward to seeing what Geiger has in store for us next!

4 stars Review by Amy W. Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night w/ Books Blog Tell Me No Lies is the conclusion to the super suspenseful Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger. It needs to be noted that you must read the first book before starting this one. What happened to Eric Thorn? Tessa Hart has been gone for months and now that she is out of hiding people want answers. Answers they believe only Tessa can provide. It's time for her to face her past and deal with the consequences. Like the first book this one is told through Tweets, DMs and police transcripts, as well as Snapchat and flashbacks. We finally get the answers that the doozy of a cliffhanger left us with. That's all I'm going to say, I don't want to spoil book one or give away too much of book two. While Tell Me No Lies isn't as all encompassing as I felt Follow Me Back was, it still captured my attention and held it until the end. Overall this duology is one I think that YA suspense lovers will greatly enjoy.

I was surprised to find out that "Follow Me Back" was actually part of a duology, and I knew I needed to read it! However, as "Follow Me Back" could have stood on its own, I am not sure I actually should have read the sequel. "Tell Me No Lies" picks up after the first book ended, and we follow the past and present in alternating sections- the past right after the first ended and the present where characters are being questioned about a murder- but whose, we don't know. I had to go back and read the ending of the first book so I could follow the start of this sequel. At first, I found it a little slow, and some sections read like a cartoon villain (Blair's). However, once I got a bit of the way into it (15%), I found myself heavily engaged and couldn't put it down- I had to know what happened to whom and where the story would take us. After being in exile, Tessa has moved back to civilization where she has been working as a social media consultant- somewhat of a nightmare for someone who suffers from anxiety around crowds/the spotlight. As the book evolves, there are forces working against her- some from outside but most from within, as she has not refilled her anxiety medication. I really wish they could have kept her on her medication and under the care of a therapist in the book- her paranoia was most of the plot of the book and really served to drive the plot. I think it would have been better to let the outside forces drive the book and keep her treated. I had some issues with the plot and how things were framed, but on the plus side, it was certainly as page-turning as the first book. Overall, I would say to enjoy the first and read this one only if you feel you absolutely need the closure. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.
