    I read this book without knowing what it was about and my first thought was it was going to be about snobby college girls being awfully mean but for some reason I had to find out more. The more I read the more I had to know what was going to happen and before I knew it the story quickly spiraled into this crazy action-filled and suspenseful book. I couldn’t put it down! It blew my mind! L.C. Kanon did a great job keeping me interested.The main characters, Gia, Joy, Eva and Leigh, set off to Mexico for spring break. Gia is a very rich girl and usually gets what she wants so the other girls follow her lead in fear they will be humiliated like everybody else Gia looses interest in. The book starts with Gia being mad at Eva and is from the beginning very mean and short with the poor girl. Joy is the one Gia won’t let leave her side while Leigh is trying to stay out of the whole debacle. Eva and Leigh become inseparable and are tricked by the other two girls which lead into a world of trouble. Not a spring break they intended on, that’s for sure. They accidentally stumble upon members of a few Mexican drug cartels, have to do some stealing and witness murder. Will they all come back to the states alive?Spring Break was an excellent read. I couldn’t find myself wanting to put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next. This is definitely for older young adults because of the violence and some sexual content. It was an easy book to read but there was one thing that I can’t seem to wrap my mind around and didn’t quite understand. That had to do with Leigh’s sister. There wasn’t enough information for me to decipher what exactly went on but other than that the book was amazing.

    This is one of those stories that makes me happy to not have had too many friends, especially rich, spoiled ones. The story starts out with the girls getting ready to get on a plane for Cancun. It is obvious that their is a fight brewing between them which we learn is the result of Eva sleeping with Gia's ex-boyfriend. You would think that after being apart for a year that Gia would have no claim over the man any more, or at least that is what Eva thought. Apparently in the spoiled diva code, once she dated him that made him off limits for all eternity. After reading a little bit about the storm that's coming, you will start questioning what terrible thing has been planned to remove Eva from their group. I honestly thought that the book description was talking about how the cartels got involved in killing Eva and what the other three girls had to do to pay them for their services. This is not correct though. What ends up happening is much much more dramatic and shocking.Shocking is probably the best word to describe this book. You will never guess what is going to happen next. You certainly would not expect a couple of early twenty-something girls to be able to accomplish what they do. Their plans are spur of the moment and oh so effective. They have the two rivaling cartels second guessing everything they do. They also are so good at misdirection that both cartels are unaware that the "attacks" are coming from these unsuspecting (and unbiased) coeds. This isn't for the weak of heart. This is definitely for mature audiences. While not every adult situation is described in explicit detail, you know exactly what is happening at all times. It was very well written.Read more reviews at Identity Discovery Blog.

    Lisa's review ofSpring BreakBy LC KanonI was given a copy of Spring Break by LC Kanon in exchange for an honest review.  First off I was able to relate to the starting location when the author talked about Phoenix, Mesa, Paradise Valley and Sky Harbor Airport because I live in that city although the college name is different.  What does a girl of influence do during spring break party of course and where better to party than Cancun.  Where rules are broken daily.  Four friends go to a resort but the leader is mad at one of the girls for dating and sleeping with her ex even though they broke up over a year ago.  She is vowing revenge but she is vindictive and mean who puts all the girls in a very dangerous situation involving murder and drugs along with rival drug cartels.  Leah stands up to the plate and becomes a power to be reckoned with.  Something happens to Joy that starts a rollercoaster adventure for the three remaining girls, uppity Gia happens to be one of the girls but she is messed up in drugs and she would sell her own soul to get herself out of a situation and sticking it to Eva and Leigh in the process.  I recommend this for a twist and turn adventure that keeps you turning the pages in order to follow this wild ride.  I look forward to reading more from this author.

    Don't judge this book by its cover. At first glance this book looks like a cheesy, spring break novel about spoiled rich kids with attitude. Turns out LC Kanon writes intriguing characters with suspense woven into every chapter. There are dozens of twists and turns through out the novel that keep the reader engaged and fascinated at the often bloody outcomes.The true gift within this book is the revelation of who the characters really are, rather than who they appear to be. I have often thought that stressful situations show you the true potential of a person. This is exactly what happens to each of these girls as they find themselves entangled in a turf war with drug cartels in Mexico. They have to fight their way home and hope with every step to make it out alive. As they move towards their goal, they are forced to confront their ability to lie, manipulate and even murder to get home.Surprisingly, the story begins and ends innocently. Everything in between is a loss of naivete as we watch beautiful co-eds transform into hardcore killers and drug runners. They face off with drug bosses and each other. They even find something unexpected in the mix.Beautifully conceived and well-written, you won't regret picking this thrilling tale for your next adventure.

    This book was kind of unreal, I mean a bunch of schoolgirls that suddenly turn into cold blooded murderers?But with that been said when you let it go it is a okay book.It is about rich spoiled Gia that always gets her way and bullies her friends every way she can. During Spring break where Gia's dad pays for the girls vacation. She gets more nasty because Eva slept with an ex-boyfriend of Gia, which she didn't know was an ex. Gia thought it gave her a green card to get even more nasty. They drink and use drugs like no tomorrow.When spoiled Gia demands from the manager Guero of the hotel that he satisfy her for damage, he invites the girls for drinks and dinner, they accept.Leah notice that something is not right and when she goes for a bathroom break, she discovers some scary things, soon they are in the middle of 2 cartels literary shooting their way out. if they will survive and what happens with them next is for you to find out. it is well written but just a bit to unreal for my taste, hence the 3 stars.

    I read this book for Promotional Book Tours for a fair and honest review.This was the kind of book you can easily read in one sitting. It's fast paced and you find yourself anxious to see what happens next.Four college girls go on vacation to Mexico, only 2 return. They suddenly find themselves mixed up with things they never expected. Lies, drugs, murder, sex. The ring leader of these girls suddenly finds herself no longer in charge. One suddenly turns into a lean mean killing machine. This is defintely a unique but gripping story. I don't belive I've read anything like it, and don't believe I will again. I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes it's good to read something you normally wouldn't read.

    Four young co-eds head off for some spring break parting in Mexico. Spoiled rich girl Gia decides to show her mean girl ways and starts tormenting Eva. It's quite obvious from the beginning these four are not going to have the vacation they first imagined. Not only do they find themselves fighting with each other they end up involved in a world of mess wit the cartel. Drugs, sex trade, abuse talk about bad people these four managed to find them. What happens next is surprising to say the least. These four ladies have to pull out all of the stops for survival? Will they make it home? You'll have to read it to find out. I received a free copy of Spring Break from Promotional Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

    I can totally see this as a movie!At first I was hesitant to read this book because the summary and cover didn't seem like the books I normally read. I sat down to read it during my lunch hour yesterday and was immediately hooked. With Gia's attitude I knew something was going to happen to her but never imagined all the twists and turns with Leigh and Eva. What they did to survive is what you'd expect to see in a blockbuster movie not in a book.As she was mentioned several times throughout the book I would've liked to find out what happened to Leigh's sister, sort of closure. Perhaps this could be the topic of another book....

    I received a copy of this novel from Promotional Book Tours in exchange for my honest review. I have to admit, this book through me for a loop. From the title, I expected this to be Chick Lit, and the beginning reminded me of the movie “Mean Girls”, you just don’t want to be on Gia’s bad side. Unfortunately, Eva gets her wrath for stealing her ex-boyfriend (note the word ex). This was an awesome book, you never know what will happen next, not to mention these girls keeping the cartels on their toes was fantastic!

    I found myself really enjoying this book. It had an addictive quality that made me want to keep reading it to find out what happened in the end. However, I must say I was and still remain a little confused about the side story of Leigh's sister. All in all I would recommend this book.

    another fun read from SGP. this book was a little more on the fun/adventurous side & should be required reading for all state college sorority sisters headed to Mexico. I got a kick out of Leigh & her surprise blood lust and ease with which she became a killer.

    I was approached on Goodreads and asked to review this book in return for a free copy of the e-book. This starts out as the story of four vapid seeming frenemies on spring break from college at a resort in Mexico. I was not impressed - i'm not a fan of Gossip Girl. The writing, the dialogue, was all poor and seemed rather ridiculous. Did a grown up even write this? I just started laughing, and then I realized that might be the point. In the blink of an eye, it switches over to a story about drug running, and escaping a cartel. Only, kind of not really. It's not a spoiler to say that these girls, before only concerned with the perfect hair and clothes and making sure their skirts are hiked up enough, become cold blooded killers. Not only that, they do it WHILE still being concerned with all those things. They can kill someone, then complain about their hair, or fix their eyeliner. The whole thing reminded me of a Grindhouse movie. We have gorgeous women in tiny, skimpy clothes, drinking a lot, and then randomly offing someone with a gun or a MACHETE! They could give the Mad Men cast a run for their money with all the smoking and drinking that goes on! It was hilarious, violent and gory and I enjoyed myself! I'd love to see this made into a movie, with girls teetering on too-high heels and too many shots, as they take out yet another cartel member. In the end, I enjoyed it. Fast-paced and just weird. If you're looking for a teen sort of vacation book, or don't like violence, skip it. But if you like campy action things starring hot girls (even unlikable ones) and bad dialogue, go for it.

    I was asked to review this book, fairly and honestly, by the publisher. I never would have selected the book because the cover is so offputting. I can't help but think that this book is somehow a joke or an experiment of sorts. Nobody could write this badly and get it published by a paying publisher. I researched LC Kanon extensively and there are no photos of her or him anywhere. The blog this person authors contains photos only. I'm wondering if the publisher wanted to see if people read poorly written books and rated them high just because they were asked to review them.The story takes four "mean girls" to Mexico where they get involved with the drug cartels. There are no characters to like or care about. The mean girls basically have no motivation for anything they do. One of them "Leigh" starts killing people just like she was a hitman. But nothing is written about her background that would motivate her to act like that.Throughout the book, the sentences are very poorly constructed, so you have to read them two or three times to figure out what the author meant to say. Nobody in the book ever has any feelings either. No happiness, anger, sadness or anything else that would cause them to do what they do. Plot threads are dropped suddenly for no reason.I apologize to LC Kanon if he or she is a real person. But you need more than a plot to create a book worthy of reading. I would suggest a basic fiction writing class.

    Talk about a page turner. I really wanted to finish this book as soon as I started reading it. Unfortunately due to illness after illness I often had to put it down after reading just a page. Finally I got the chance to complete the second half of the book over the last week and I am just shocked. I really enjoyed the book and think that once I have more time to myself I might read it cover to cover without such a large time between reading.This book really has it all, crime, murder, drama, mystery and romance. The end of the book threw me for a major loop. Never would I have expected it to end the way it did, but it really fit the book. What I really enjoyed is almost from the beginning the book picked up roping you in. You are quickly introduced to the main characters and it just goes from there. When I first read the title I was really expecting the book to be more of a woman's read than a book filled with murder. In my mind I was imagining a group of woman on a vacation with some romance (think very Sex In the City), but boy was I surprised (in a good way). Run ins with cartels, drugs, murders and having to make decisions quickly to survive all while a weird and twisted love begins it is a real great read and I would recommend it to anyone that has a love a crime drama.

    I'm still trying to swallow everything I read!In all honesty I don't think I would go down the road Leigh took by no means...WTF!!!This book definitely will have you thinking about any trips you plan on taking with the girlfriends down south!!The writing keeps the pages turning and the characters are very unique! Leigh just goes totally psycho!!! I mean first the booze bottle then the gun and if that wasn't bad enough lets add a machete!!! You'd think she was seriously messed up but really as you read she is one bad ass co'ed!I know this is bad to say when someone gets off'ed but really I wasn't too sorry when Joy was shot...Girls like that really annoy me!!!Too bad it wasn't Gia.... luckily she got something better (lol) in the end.Then sweet little Eva...she just goes along for the ride.I guess when you cross one cartel then try to play them against another cartel things get really UGLY!!I swear tons of action...lots of murder, but a damn good story!

    I finished this book in 3 days. It's an easy and enjoyable read. I stayed up until 2am finishing this book since I couldn't wait to read what happens next. I read books to escape the real world so while the story line might not be realistic that's what I enjoyed the most. If you are looking for a book where you can escape and does not have a cliche generic ending, then this is the book for you!

    Totally cheesy, totally unrealistic. Yes, rich snobby girls turning into cold-blooded murderers? Overnight? Getting with mobsters. I mean, come on, these girls were just normal college kids...And all of a sudden having sex with loads of men, killing sprees...etc. It was OK, I suppose. Cover was not-so-good, as well.

    The Author, L.C. Kanon pens "Spring Break" in a plot filled enough twists and turns to keep you interested and intrigued. The characters were so realistic, that you loved and hated them at the same time. This is one book that you can just sit back and enjoy.This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

    This book was entertaining, however very unrealistic. The four girls on Spring Break were horrible examples of coeds. I would not recommend this to anyone over 23 years old.
