Summary (Goodreads):

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. As Cameron secretly observes Emily, he has no idea of the danger he has placed her in—or that it may already be too late for him to save 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.

My Review: 

Review also posted on Goodreads

It continues where Crow’s Row left as Emily Sheppard mourns over the loss of Cameron. She goes back to her normal life as a college student and starts finding a way to earn money for her daily expenses. With Meatball (Cameron’s pet) accompanying her, it’s not enough to make her happy especially she’s carrying something that reminds of him. She may be a little naive, I find her more independent and determined yet became more reckless. There are times I’m frustrated with her and I just want her to take things slowly and easy (view spoiler) but she’s too stubborn.

As for Cameron, the underground business is encountering problems and he must overlook it to solve the situation. His sole purpose of (view spoiler) was to keep Emily safe from this dark place he is in. She’s too precious, he thought she deserves a normal life and move forward from him. He’s clouded with emotions that he loses his concentration. His decision making is worse and doing agendas (both personal and business) without Spider and Carly in the picture. This caused a strained partnership between them but they remained loyal to him.

I like the book but I can’t deny I’m slightly disappointed on how it turned out. Most parts happened here – they’re apart from each other. It took too damn long for them to reunite. There are scenes that left loose ends. With no release date yet on the last book, I’m crossing my fingers it will be a wonderful finale.


Let there be NO LOVE TRIANGLE.
