Nineteen-year-old Emily Sheppard is losing her sanity. Ever since her mob king boyfriend, Cameron Hillard, abandoned her for her own good, Emmy has been attempting to move on with her charmed college student life as if nothing happened. Now rejected from the underworld and left grieving over Cameron’s alleged death, Emmy realizes she belongs nowhere. Worse yet, she is now keeping a dangerous secret.

After just a short time with Emily, Cameron has lost control over his world. As he miserably attempts to return to what is left of his life and unravel the mess he has made of the underworld, Emily’s hate turns to desperation. She needs to kill the kingpins responsible for Cameron’s death before they come looking for her. 

Scare Crow is a tale of revenge, terror, and love as Emmy and Cameron embark on separate journeys to face enemies, correct past mistakes, and find their way to their destinies.

Book Review: 

There are few books that can actually take you inside the story. Julie Hockley absolutely nailed this second book and delivered a perfect story of desperation and sweet revenge. I am speechless because it's so much better than the first book and every single chapter got better and better. It was a lovely mix between the dark world of the Drug Lords with the simple strength of a girl seeking revenge.
Revenge feels a lot like survival. The need to hurt, the need to kill consumes you.  Except that when revenge turns to survival, hate is replaced by total desperation

You will be blown away with the development of this story I guarantee it! Because when you are finally saying that no more surprises can show up, they blow up in your face and leave you stunned. This story has everything to make it big. Now, Emily wants revenge against Victor and Spider and she will do anything to see them killed, even if it means getting involved with the mafia again. And Cameron is ready to blow the Underworld and go on a suicide mission to make sure Emily is protected for life. But what they don't expect is all the people that will get in the way and a sudden change in Emily's world (A Baby) that might lead her to have to quit her revenge. 

There is just so much action and people getting killed and getting their revenge. It's AWESOME. Julie Hockley would never let us down by writing a boring book but she definitely did surprised me because she introduced so many backstabbers that deserved the death they got. Action. Action, Action until the very end. 

Emily has definitely grown claws. If someone thinks this girl is useless, this book will make them think twice because she has connections and she's going to use them all. She's not just a rich kid or a helpless student. Be ready to see the fury that Emily has built inside of her come out. Mainly because she's Pregnant... Yes, i said pregnant... I say that it was a good thing that Cameron "died" because she definitely changed so much by not leaning on him and actually be able to protect herself from the Bad guys alone. 

And then there is Griff (yes, hes back!!!) and Em will be kind of a bitch to him but i'm hoping she sees who's actually there for her and for MEatball as well. Because whilst Cameron was thinking he was protecting Emily, she was suffering more than she had too. ANd who was there for her? Griff. This loving guy that just lights up the whole book with his jokes and genuine love for Em. 
The fact that I had fallen in love with his nemesis was killing Griff, like a bullet that lingered near his heart. The fact that I was pregnant with the child of his archenemy, the fact that I was bearing the seed of everything he hated, the fact that I still loved Cameron was enough to thrust the bullet to its final target
Okay, i never tough to change my opinion on the main male character before. But i did. And if i Loved Cameron in the first book. Now i despise him.  Everything he did and all the lies he told were completely unnecessary and he only managed to put Emily in more trouble than she was on before. And be ready because he will do so much stupid shit in here. He better redeem himself in the next book... 

We finally get some personal intel from Carly, Spider and Bill. Hell's yeah. I am telling you now that Carly and Spider are going to have a bumpy road and the book shows them like we never seen them. With a vulnerability that's hard to describe. And Bill? Let me just say that some secrets are going to come out. 

Scare Crow was one of the best book of 2014 so far. It's amazing to read and even though it's big you will read it in a blink of an eye. It's got action, love, suspense and a hell lot of betrayals.... It's perfect.
