BOOK REVIEW | Nice Try, Afton – Brent Jones

Hi everyone!

I’m SO excited because today is release day for Brent Jones’ third novel in the Afton Morrison series, Nice Try, Afton! The first two books were phenomenal, and this one is no different. You can read my reviews for both Go Home, Afton and See You Soon, Afton. I HIGHLY encourage you to check these novels out. They are most definitely in my favorite books read this year. Anyway, enough with that, let’s get to the review! 🙂

I didn’t think it was possible for the Afton Morrison series to keep getting better, but once again, Brent Jones has outdone himself!

I also didn’t think I could love Afton Morrison any more than I already did, but she just keeps evolving and she is such an amazing character to follow. The Afton Morrison series themes itself around the question of whether we are born with evil in us or if it is a matter of choice, but it is really studied in Nice Try, Afton. As Afton struggles with her identity, she is faced with the question, is she really an evil, cold-blooded murderess? A vigilante? Through her struggles she is becoming even more badass, and I cannot wait to find out the conclusion of her story.

I love the tension in Nice Try, Afton. It was the kind of ‘on your seat’ thrill I live for. Every book has had this so far, but Brent Jones has managed to up the ante even more. From beginning to end, there is action. I especially love the scenes in the last half of the book. I could not put this one down, I had to know what was happening.

Twists and turns, questions of morality, a badass female lead, and a story that just keeps getting better as we progress through the series, I can’t stress enough how much I recomend Nice Try, Afton. This is NOT a series you want to miss!
