Narc by Crissa-Jean Chappell Review

Narc by Crissa-Jean Chappell
Release Date: August 8, 2012
Publisher: Flux; 288 pages
"You're going to hate me forever when you learn my secret."

Seventeen-year-old stoner Aaron Foster was offered a choice: go to jail or turn undercover narc to find the dealer who's funneling drugs into Miami's Palm Hammock High School. But Aaron has never been good at getting close to people. He's human wallpaper, a stoner wastecase who's obsessed with video games and street magic.

With a cop from Narcotics breathing down his neck, Aaron gets himself invited to parties where the deals go down. To get close to the school's biggest players, Aaron lies to everyone--most of all, the cute but troubled Morgan Baskin. With the Everglades party on Halloween night--and a planned drug bust there--just days away, Aaron realizes that he's falling hard for Morgan . . . and trying to protect her could cost him everything.

This book was alright. There wasn't anything exciting about the story but yet I liked the main three characters enough to keep reading. Aaron, Morgan and Skully made a great threesome and each character played well off the others but just the story, there was nothing exciting or unexpected that occurred.

Double A, as Skully likes to call him, gets in way over his head. He's forced to be a narc and find out who the top dog is dealing drugs at his school. What he finds out scares him because of how much he cares for Morgan and Skully but he must ultimately make the choice of them or his little sister. Blood ties are stronger than anything else.

Doesn't make things easy though, especially since he's falling hard for Morgan. She's in way too deep, too and all he wants to do is protect her. Sometimes it's just impossible to do that.

Her ex-boyfriend Brent is a big factor in the story and he's one of the biggest a--holes you could come across.

Like I said, the characters themselves weren't bad, at all it's just the story lacked anything really exciting. Nothing to excite you and reel you in, wanting to devour the story. I will have to say, even without the wow factor, this book is a very quick read.

If you're looking for something that's a different type of contemporary with some appealing characters, you should definitely check this out. If you're looking for an amazing contemporary, I do suggest checking elsewhere.
