Summary: A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating—Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?

Debut author Jeanne Ryan delivers an un-putdownable suspense thriller.

My Thoughts: For some reason, I had a lot of trouble getting into Nerve. Maybe it was just my reading mood or just something I didn’t find that interesting, I’m not sure.

We are introduced to Vee who gets to participate in a game called Nerve. Nerve is a game where people accept dares and complete them to win prizes.

It seems like Nerve knows everything about Vee and what she would want to win.  Vee isn’t usually the kind of girl who would participate in this but she wants to think outside the box and her comfort zone for once.

She gets paired up with Ian, a superhottie who has his own dares to complete. Sometimes they involve each other, sometimes they don’t.

I did enjoy seeing which dares they had to complete and how they would do them, I also enjoyed seeing the prizes they won. But, I just felt like something was missing from this novel. It just wasn’t the best novel for me I guess.

Nerve was interesting enough and I’m sure there will be a line of people who will love it, it just wasn't the right thing for me. I did finish it and I did like it enough, I just don’t think it will be called one of my favorites of the year.

I am interested in what others have to say and how much they enjoyed it. Like, I said maybe it was just my reading mood. I just never really felt like I connected with the characters or plot. I am glad I finished it though!

Overall: Nerve was just alright for me. Will I try another book by this author? Yes, of course!

Cover: Like it, its pretty appealing.
