    2. Ugh I can t recall ever reading a romance less satisfying.Which is a shame considering the promising premise of a prominently scarred heroine The thing is, had the author left out the entire romance part and focused on CeCe s character and her struggles, her friendships and family drama instead, it might have been a great book, as those were the passages that really touched me deeply.The love story, however, has left me wanting for so much I wasn t expecting anything profound I was anticipating [...]


    3. Yess I needed this book Been reading a lot of fantasy and paranormal that I was starting to feel a little burned out So happy I got the chance to read this one early Not only is it written by one of my favorite authors, but it was exactly what I hoped for and Love Katie Ray s Kacvinsky books Full review to come


    4. Y no what, I was quite surprised by the book, I thought it would just be a big ball of cliche, and it time it was but I totally didn t care because it was so CUTEEEEE.I loved Emmett and CeCe s relationship, they were just made for each other and that much was obvious I MEAN COME ON So I was annoyed with the whole Emmett Bryn CeCe scenario which just got way out of hand and was awkward and cringey but I also LOVED IT.CeCe was by far my favourite character in the book, she was badass and did her b [...]


    5. 4.5 StarsI don t read a lot of YA To be honest, I don t like YA that much Reading about teenagers who fall in love Ughs Not my cup of tea.Anyway, i enjoyed Don t kiss the messenger a lot.It s the story of CeCe, a girl who had a serious car accident years ago and is left with a big scar on her face She s a fighter and has developed a bad ass attitude to deal with her looks I really liked her She s this girl who is too smart, too witty, too strong to be real It s all a strategy to cope with her in [...]


    6. I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of Don t Kiss the Messenger provided by Entangled Teen and the author Thank you for showing me that scars can be beautiful too Love has two sides First, it amazes us with its force Then it humbles us with its sincerity Entangled Crush is best known for their cute and straightforward high school romances, some titles make you laugh, while some make you feel young at heart On the other end of the spectrum, there are books like this whose blurb and cover promi [...]



    7. I m confused as hell, yet i m still quite enjoying it Don t kiss the messenger Why is it called like that How does this even relate to the story I don t knowWhen I saw the title, I thought it was the love story between a milkman or a postman and a married woman Let me tell you, it s not between a milkman and a woman, not even between a postman Strangely enough, I wasn t put off by the idea, and I read the blurb Yes,I did So I read it, liked it, and got the book Aaaaaaaaaaand, I didn t expect suc [...]


    8. Original review Don t Kiss the Messenger tells the story of CeCe Edmonds CeCe had a car accident when she was younger and because of that she has a scar on her face She s been dealing with a lot of stares and whispers about her scar, so now she s tough and doesn t back away when someone s mean to her It looks like she s fine, but she s not She desperately wants someone to love her for who she is, but everyone only sees her scar Until EmmettI really liked Don t Kiss the Messenger I thought it was [...]


    9. Many thanks to Entangled Teen Crush for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion Wow This little book completely blew me away Although I ve read a few books from this particular imprint before, they in no way gave me any indication that I would fall in love with Don t Kiss the Messenger I expected a cute, contemporary YA romance with a few fun times and a couple of swoons, maybe some sweet characters, but a predictable plot and an overall lack of depth Still, sometimes that is exac [...]


    10. CeCe Edmonds is used to people not being able to see past the disfiguring scar that runs down the side of her face She s used to the staring, the pointing, and the taunting To protect herself she s hidden behind a thick emotional armor and a witty talent for self deprecation She spends so much time focusing on her classes and her varsity volleyball team at her prep school, Edgelake, in Madison, Wisconsin that she can almost forget that she never gets asked out on dates and guys usually don t wan [...]


    11. It was a very adorable read A very cute YA romance More than just the class made me think of a specific playwright This parallels a certain Shakespeare play This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.


    12. Too many shades of Cyrano de Begerac s tragicomedy are at work here as CeCe lets herself get carried away as she helps a flighty teammate win the new Quarterback she likes through lyrics and poems synchronicity matters in hobbies, after all , as things go predictably pear shaped and minds get scrambled Yet Don t Kiss the Messenger has put me in such a bind It s cleverly written really, with bona fide depth to it like those arty teen movies of the 90s, with a kind of teenage philosophising that c [...]


    13. 3.5 Scars, Sports Illusions StarsARC via NetGalley.Thank you, Entangled Teen Crush.I m still not sure how to rate this book, to be completely honest While the main character took me on an emotional ride, giving me all the feels, I had problems with how the romance was portrayed here among other things.Don t Kiss the Messenger didn t go at all as I expected I ve read my fair share of Entangled Crush books to expect sweet and cute stories with popular tropes like the falling in love with someone w [...]


    14. Actual Rating 4.5 Thank you Sharon J for recommending this book to me This was an amazing read It tugged at my heartstrings a bit There were a few points where I cried while I read the book The characters were great Although, I did get annoyed by the heroine, Cece She is a girl who write emails to a boy for another girl I wished that she would have told the truth Emmett was a sweet guy I thought that he had a way with words because he had a very poetic way of speaking Bryn is an arrogant, superf [...]


    15. Thanks to Chapter by Chapter and Entangled Teen for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.When Emmett and Bryn start attending Edgelake High their senior year they re enact their own modern Cyrano de Bergerac love story with CeCe smack in the middle CeCe, while a leader on the volleyball court takes a back seat in love due to the large scar on her face Emmett, the new football quarterback is blindsided by the gorgeous looks of fellow new student Bryn but falls in love with he [...]


    16. Wow, this book drew me in From the first page on I was hooked and didn t put the book down till the end I can t even tell what I felt exactly, because due to the unusual circumstances and some insecurities and some stupidity andwell, you get the point, right my feelings changed every other minute I was sighing and grinning foolishly, was really really upset the next minute, started ranting and swearing am second later and would have loved to kick somebody or other well, sometimes Take CeCe, you [...]


    17. rating 4.5 of 5 DON T KISS THE MESSENGER is a fun read about love, identity, self awareness, self acceptance, and friendship When I first learned that Katie Ray had a new book coming out for Entangled Crush, it immediately went on my TBR list I was vaguely aware of the story of Cyrano de Bergerac, I enjoy reading retellings, and I was interested in reading Katie Ray s YA retelling of this story.Straight off, I was a fan of CeCe and her no nonsense this is me, just as I am self And for other reas [...]


    18. This is, like, the most adorable and the most frustrating book I ve come across Ever Which wasn t at all what I expected to get from this Honestly, I just couldn t sleep so I figured why not read a few pages just to tire myself out But before I know it, it s already three in the morning and I was already turning the last page Don t Kiss the Messenger surprised me in a really welcome and pleasant way.Let me start off by saying that our MC, CeCe, puts a whole new twist at badass ery and sass I don [...]


    19. What I got from this tale it doesn t matter if you have an attractive personality, if you re ugly, that guy will never notice you Ever Unless you make it obvious even then he still won t notice you, not when there s an ethereal beauty in front of him Looks matter, people So yeah if you re ugly Tough shit.I m mostly, sarcastic Not really.


    20. Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review.Great story good writing amazing main characters dual povs intelligent cast AMAZING BOOK.


    21. A book with lots of playlists recommends itself to me instantly Cece and Emmett aren t average sports people, they are both very passionate about music and literature I loved their eloquent and frequently artistic discussions, the metaphores they used Cece feels alert all the time since people pay a lot of attention to her scarred face, but she learns that the scare actually made her who she is and she slowly accepts it It s a romantic love stroy full of uncertainties and love letters I really e [...]


    22. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 Angsty StarsYoung Adult age range 14 due to sexual situations and adult language.Katie Ray is a new to me author, and I was instantly hooked from the first paragraph Swift pacing, easy to relate to characters, and realistic emotions Beyond frustrating for an adult to read CeCe is a strong character athletic, a true leader, crazy about music and literature deep and cerebral centric She is also scarred on her cheek from a car ac [...]


    23. Don t Kiss the Messenger is a gender reversed, high school retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac It s a story about disguise, miscommunication, and hidden crushes Often I find stories about deception frustrating because I am so impatient for the truth to be revealed, but in this book the use of modern technology to disguise flirtation is creatively thought out and well executed I thought and loved that the book gave off vibes that reminisced the classic independent heroine and witty banter that is por [...]


    24. Don t Kiss the Messenger was an absolutely adorable, quick read After reading that it is a retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac, I wanted to immediately go read the original.Cece is an incredibly smart, vivacious character Captain of the varsity volleyball team at a school where sports are everything, she should be one of the most popular students at school However, the large scar on her face from a childhood accident seems to define her to her classmates than anything else I loved how tough and res [...]


    25. Don t Kiss the Messenger was a sweet albeit predictable book about the misunderstandings and missteps of young love in the style of Shakespeare The book takes place at Edgelake, a combinating high school college where the students live, attend classes, and compete on athletic teams It s senior year, and CeCe is captain of the volleyball team She is taking Shakespeare as an elective, and on the first day, she is paired up with the handsome new transfer the football team has been raving about Emme [...]


    26. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads I was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up liking Don t Kiss the Messenger DKTM and was immediately hooked after just a few pages CeCe Edmonds, the main character, is a strong female and very relatable Katie Ray has easily won me over with this one DKTM is a modern day retelling of Cyrano Bergerac, which I haven t read, but I am certainly intrigued by it now Although, this is Katie Ray s first book under this pen name she [...]


    27. Amazing I had so much fun reading this I loved both Emmett and Cece For me this felt real You didn t need sex scenes to feel this two feelings I know that I will rate a book high when no sex scenes or dirty talking is needed to feel the chemistry between the two leads, and Katie Ray did that exactly I loved the friendship CeCe had with her roommates I loved that guys even do they weren t romantically interested they weren t rude or mean to Cece We did get to read about her being bullied by certa [...]


    28. I received a copy of this book in exchange for review.Emmett I m so hot I m a star football player, but I m also a deeply emotional pianist I speak in lyrics.CeCe I have a scar on my face I m so hideous But not my 10 10 body I m also very deep emotional and speak in lyrics.Bryn I m a complete moron I buy shoes I have hair the color of soft wheat in the afternoon sunlight.Tuba I m the only remotely normal character in this book.These are the main characters Despite my snarkiness about them, I act [...]


    29. This was such an adorable read, I loved almost everything about it I had every intention of reading a chapter or two before bed but ended up finishing the entire book in one go because I just couldn t put it down Rarely does a book really surprise me but this one did, very different than what I was expecting Our protagonist CeCe takes the badass, I don t care what you think of me , sassy attitude to a whole new level and I love it Emmett is the perfect love interest for her, he is old school gen [...]
