I love Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde retellings so I was immediately intrigued with this book. Harper has just began dating Logan who is recently new to town. He is very sweet, kind, swoon worthy, and a perfect boyfriend to Harper. They really understand each other since Harper lost her mom and Logan lost both of his parents. Everything is perfect between them until one night Logan has to take off in a hurry and has Harper's purse in his car. Harper decides to drop by his house to pick it up and unknowingly meets Daemon. Daemon is cruel and evil to Harper and she runs out of the house planning to never speak to Logan again.
Logan then has to confess he has an evil twin brother. Poor Logan. He never wanted to have to tell Harper about him because Daemon has been ruining his life forever. Harper is mad he lied but doesn't want to judge Logan by his evil brother. But as mysterious spooky things keep happening and also a couple of suspicious injuries occur, Harper thinks it's time to investigate what is really going on with Daemon and why they had to move. Those that were actually looking forward to this because of the implied love triangle will be disappointed. No love triangle occurs which made me very happy. Daemon is completely psycho and Harper wants nothing to do with him.
I don't have too much to say about this one. It was a creepy and fast read but a bit predictable which is expected with retellings. I loved Logan and felt really bad for him. I wanted him to be my boyfriend. He truly loved Harper and was trying so hard to have a chance to be happy. His circumstances were horrible. I wasn't too impressed with the ending either. It wasn't happy or sad and it left things a bit open. Definitely still worth a read. Not a life changer but it held my attention well and I enjoyed the romance and horror.
"I blush. How can he call me beautiful when he's dressed like that and I'm in torn blue jeans and an old Darigold T-shirt? When my nickname is DQ and his might as well be GQ?"
He steps closer and touches my chin with his pointer finger so that I look up at hm. "I really like being with you." And then he closes the gap, and we're standing there beside the bubbling geyser as his lips graze mine. The faintest flutter of a touch steals my breath away. My eyes slip shut and the world seems to give way beneath my feet.
