Review: Spring Break by LC Kanon

About the Book:
An all-expenses paid trip to Cancun for spring break? It wasn't exactly a hard sell for Leigh, Eva, Gia and Joy, frenemies from Arizona Southern University. But all is not well in the land of silver or lead. Soon after arriving, Leigh and the girls stumble upon some cartel carnage—a bloodbath of debauchery that makes even their wildest desert party seem tame.
Instead of doing the proper thing, like contacting the authorities, the girls venture down the rabbit hole in this tale of sex, lies, and bloodshed. Everything changes when Leigh makes the acquaintance of Guero, a cartel kingpin who is none too pleased with her newfound lust for blood money.
These vengeful coeds aren’t on campus anymore, and after Guero lets them know just how serious he is, they make a run for the border no one will ever forget.
My Review:
I first signed up for this book tour, because the first part of the story takes place in locations in Arizona, and since I live here, it is always exciting for me to read books that take place where I live.  Anyway, these four college co-eds are pretty much mean girls.  Gia is nasty and she has it out for Eva because Eva slept with her ex-boyfriend.  They end up stuck in a cartel war and you start to see some of these girls true colors.  

The girls have to fight their way out of Mexico, where they have gone on Spring break in order to make it back home.  Some of the girls don't make it, but I won't say who.  The girls get involved in drugs and violence.  One of the girls suddenly becomes a killing machine...which is a little far fetched, but take it at face value and the book is a fun read.  It's very twisted and you'll be surprised by the end.

Hi! I would like to recommend that you talk more about character development and authorship, in addition to summarizing the story and telling us whether you liked it or not.
Did the characters feel two-dimensional? Was it realistic? Did you like the author's writing technique? Why or why not?
Was there humor? Romance? Passion?
Did you like the point of view the author chose to tell the story from? Will you be reading more from this author? What else has she/he written?

Also, there was only about two sentences worth of a review here. Make it a little longer, but keep the reader's attention.
I hope you take these things into consideration when writing your next review! :)
Good luck, and I'll definitely check back often!
