Allison McKready is a succubus. So is her twin sister. But while Allison spends her summer break hiding in the library behind her Goth makeup, Jade fools around as often as she can. Allison can’t believe Jade would ignore their mother’s fatal example so recklessly, but concealing a cursed bloodline and its dangerous effects is far from Allison’s only problem. Mean girl Julie’s snob mob is determined to ruin her summer, and Aunt Sarah’s Bible thumping is getting louder. Only her new friend, Ren Fisher, offers safe haven from the chaos of her life.
When one of Jade’s risky dates leads to humiliation and sudden tragedy, Allison reels, and Ren catches her. But as her feelings for him grow, so does her fear that she’ll hurt him—or worse—in an unguarded moment. The choice is coming—love him or save him—but Allison might not live to make it. One way or another, the curse will have its due.
This book caught my attention instantly, which was so surprising to me. I usually don't read paranormal books, but this synopsis just swiped me up. If there are some of you that are hesitant to pick it up because it is a paranormal, don't be scared...it's much more than "ghouls and ghostly" stuff.
Throughout this book I had a hard time liking anyone other than Allison. She has such a hard time throughout this book and I just completely feel for her. It breaks my heart how badly she is treated and how much of an outsider she is. Allison has a twin and when people usually think of twins you think of the word "same." No, Allison and her twin sister Jade are polar opposites and its definitely eye opening.
Ren is a character that I enjoyed - definitely sweeping Allison off her feet. You could tell how much Allison changed when he came into the picture and that was something so awesome. I was happy for her. But, it didn't last very long though...go figure right? How can a book pick up and you feel happy for the character and the author just shoots you down! BOOM. The feels.
This book takes you on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. You can be smiling one minute and have tears rolling down your face from laughing and feeling happy for the character, then right around the corner...you're grabbing more tissues so you can wipe the tears of sorrow away. I would definitely recommend to pick this book up!
