Goodreads Archive Review: Split Second by Kasie West

Author: Kasie West
Publication Date: 02/11/2014
Audience: Young Adult
Genre: Science Fiction, Paranormal
Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.

Picture and Summary from Goodreads



The sequel to Pivot Point was amazing in it's own right.  The way West ended Pivot Point had me dying in suspense.  Luckily Split Second picks up right where Pivot Point left off, meaning Addie has no idea what her other future had going for it.  I knew how much she loved Trevor but they had no idea.  I couldn't wait for them to figure it out. 
While the romance was more than enough to keep me turning the pages it wasn't the only action.  There is some background spying going on and I couldn't help but wonder how that was going to turn out.
In Pivot Point the POV switches between Addie's future options.  In Split Second it switches between Addie and Laila, so you always have a good idea as to what is going on and at the same time, get invested in both characters lives.
The suspense/Action = A+
The writing = A+
The Romance = A+++
You really can't go wrong with a Kasie West book and Split Second is no exception!
