Date Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #3)
Now that Keatyn is in her new school, living a new life, and has thrown out writing her own scripts—how will everything all play out? Can she be the girl she wants to be?
Date Me starts right off where Kiss Me left off. Now that Keatyn is getting use to her new school, living her life on her own, and being away from her family, it’s time for her to focus on herself. And what better way to do that then to fall in love?
Dawson and Keatyn are better than ever, but what would make it even better? If she could say those three little words, and finally become officially boyfriend and girlfriend. But, can she love, can she say those words? After having her heart broken by Cush, she is scared too, but she will just have to take a chance.
Everything is going great in school. Homecoming is coming up and that is a major thing for all the girls in the school. Who can top who by the way they got asked out? I don’t know if anyone can top Dawson’s. And who is the “dream girl” Aiden is waiting for and wanting to ask out? After going into his room and seeing he spelled out “Homecoming” in glow in the dark stars on his ceiling, Keatyn can’t help but wonder who this mystery girl is and is maybe a little be jealous.
Speaking of The God of all Hotties, Aiden, Keatyn is done with him. She has Dawson right, that’s all she needs? But, when Aiden touches her, she can’t help but feel the electricity. And he is always there when Keatyn need’s someone to talk to.
Finally not having to worry about her actress mother, Keatyn does something she always wanted to do…be in a play. After writing the scripts to her life and acting them out, this should be a cake walk. Will she get the part, and finally be able to do one of the things she has always wanted to do?
With homecoming coming up and needing a dress, Keatyn invites her girlfriends to her condo in New York and a weekend of shopping, but with her stalker on the loose, maybe that isn’t such a good thing? After having a few scary encounters, she is left to wonder—will she ever be able to go back to her normal life? Or will she always have to be hiding for the sake of her family and herself?
Learning someone is also keeping their own secret from her, will she be able to confide in that person, since he has been keeping his own? And is becoming frenemies with Whitney the best thing to do, or does Whitney have a plan that will bring everything down around KiKi?
After throwing caution to the wind and making her feelings known to Dawson, and having the best month together, he breaks her heart and has her second guessing how he really feels. Can she ever forgive him and trust him again, or will she end the relationship? There is one person who is hoping that is the case, so he can finally have his chance. Will she learn his true feelings for her? You will just have to see about that one… 🙂
Finally, saying “I love you”, becoming your own self, having great friends, hiding a big secret, and having your heat stomped on—what will KiKi do?
‘Date Me’ was by far my favorite book out of the previous one’s I have read and reviewed. I love how Jillian writes and how her books picks up right where they ended in the previous ones. This book was full of super sexy scenes and a lot of laugh out loud ones. She upped the ante in this one. The Keatyn Chronicles is seriously Gossip Girl meets Sex in the City. I so enjoy reading what Keatyn is going to wear, or putting together. The girl can put an outfit together. In the first book I was Team Cush, but that is long gone. TEAM AIDEN and TEAM RILEY all the way! Hell, I don’t even know if I can pick a team… I’m TEAM EVERYBODY, lol. And let me just say now….I will never look at Life Saver gummies the same way again!! And let’s not forget the sugar glitter…oh my word! The characters in the book seriously make it what it is. Who doesn’t love Riley or Dallas…I know I do. They all bring something to the table, and make it what it is. How Jillian ended the book, I was just sitting there thinking…YOU CAN’T DO THAT TO US, I NEED MORE, AND WANT TO KNOW MORE. I guess I will just have to wait…wait impatiently for the 4th book to come out. There is no way I can give this book less than 5 stars…I wish I could give it more.
“I’m not sure about this whole love thing yet, but I like you a lot, Dawson, and I don’t want anyone else kissing you or doing anything else with you.”- Keatyn
Quotes from the Book:
“I made you cry Keatie. I don’t ever want to make you cry.”- Dawson
“Dawson is like a sexual buffet. I never know what to expect, what’s going to be next in line. But I definitely want to keep going back for more.”- Keatyn
“Sex doesn’t equal love.”- Aiden

Book description for Date Me (Keatyn Chronicles, #3):
I’m not scripting my life anymore.
I’m living it.
I’m done with the God of all Hotties.
I’m going to give my heart to the boy who I think deserves it.
The boy whose kisses are hotter than molten lava.
The boy who offered me the key to his heart.
The boy who asked me to Homecoming in a big, sexy way.
There are so many things to look forward to.
Parties at the Cave. Homecoming festivities. Drama Tryouts. Shopping trips to NY.
But things aren’t always as perfect as they seem.
I find out that my best friend has been keeping a secret from me.
Not that I can blame him.
I have secrets too.
But, for now, I’m going to pretend I’m just a normal girl.
I’m going to pretend he’s not still out there.
I’m going to pretend he’s not getting desperate.
I’m going to pretend I’ll never see him again.
But, I will.
And this time, I might not get away.
Book Description for Kiss Me (Keatyn Chronicles, #2):
I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.
My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.
All because of a stalker.
I’m at a boarding school, where I have to lie about who I am.
I can’t see my family.
I’m tutoring a hottie god that tortures me with his smile.
The most popular girl already hates me.
But there’s this boy.
This hot, sweet, sexy boy.
So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.
Because who knows how long I have left.

REVIEW BY CASSIE HOFFMAN
‘Kiss Me’ Book 2 by Jillian Dodd
This is the 2nd book in a series. The first book is up for giveaway at the bottom (USA ONLY). Be aware, this review might contain spoilers if you have not read ‘Stalk Me’.
Being stalked, almost kidnapped, leaving everything and everyone you know behind, and never knowing if you will be able to go back to that life you left, making out with some serious hotties, and clothes any girl would kill to have. Yup, this is the life of Keatyn
In ‘Kiss Me’ you pick right up where you left off in ‘Stalk Me’. Keatyn is trying to figure out where she belongs in the new boarding school she is at. Coming from her old school where she was a part of the in-crowd, she doesn’t know if that is the road she wants to take. Maybe at this school she can join some clubs, join the dance team, and who knows… maybe run for Class President.
Learning her way around, meeting new friends and some potential make out partners, she meets the “God of all Hotties” Aiden, who has the reputation of being a total player, but with that being known, Aiden still does something to her and she can’t help but feel the pull.
Making both Varsity soccer and the dance team, things are looking up and she has met a few more friends, but has gained an enemy in Whitney, the ex-girlfriend of Dawson, a total sex God. Wanting to get his ex back and take her to homecoming, Dawson asks Keatyn to help make Whitney jealous. Not needing anymore problems, she will just flirt with Dawson….If only that was the case, Keatyn and Dawson start hooking up and having a bit of fun together.
All these boys and so little time what is a girl to do???
With making her new life and self at her new school, Keatyn still has to worry about Vincent, her stalker. They can’t catch him, and he has been showing up at places he shouldn’t be. Will she ever get her old life back and will they ever be able to catch him? She starts to wonder if leaving her old life was a mistake since he is still after her.
Life at Keatyn’s new school is going great, she has a great group of friends: both guy’s and girls, and her and Dawson are getting to know each other in more way’s then one. Having fun with Dawson, still Keatyn can’t help but feel the pull towards Aiden.
Being the “God of all Hottie’s” French tutor so she can get into the school’s Social committee isn’t as easy as she thought. With his sexy mega-watt smile, the body of a God, it starts becoming a chore to tutor him. With things getting a bit serious with Dawson and Aiden constant anger towards, her sometimes she wants to call off boys all together……who is she kidding, that will never happen 🙂
Being the new girl, boy troubles, a stalker on the loose, and a black credit card what is a girl to do??
First off, this book should be named ‘Read Me’! Holy cow did I get sucked right own in and loved every second of it. Kiss Me is a book that will suck you in and will have you fanning yourself off. It’s a fun, upbeat, funny read. Keatyn grows a bit in the story and is learning how to live on her own without her parents around, finding out who she really is, and learning to be independent as well as trying to have a bit of fun too. I loved all the new characters; they keep the book going and make it even funnier. I enjoyed her interaction with her guy friends and she has a lot of them. I could feel myself slipping into the book and being Keatyn, that is just how Jillian Dodd’s writes and I LOVE that. Throw in the fashion, a LOT of hot guys, a stalker, and steamy make-out scenes and you have a killer book that you won’t be able to put down! The book ended and I wasn’t prepared for it to be done; now I’m going to be biting my nails waiting for ‘Date Me’! And for all the girls let me just say three words…AIDEN AND DAWSON! I still have no clue what team I’m on…It’s hard to choose. I’ll stay on the dividing line and say Team Hotties 🙂 I GIVE ‘KISS ME’ 5 STARS!
I think my favorite quote out of this book/series is “Life is a divine chaos.”
“Yep. That’s what I’m gonna call you. A combination of cutie and Keatyn. You’re my little Keatie.”-Dawson
“You make me feel like a superhero, Keatie. In bed. I feel like I could fly, kick the Hulk’s ass, bust Superman’s chops, all before lunch.”-Dawson
“Too bad I’m not a vampire. I’d bite you. Make you mine.”-Aiden
