YA Fantasy/Paranormal
Rating: 5 Stars

Sometimes small towns and their secrets are better left alone.Even after moving from the big city to a small town, Scott still has it all.

Then Gwen catches his eye, and everything gets strange fast. Suddenly, people start doubting his judgment, warning him to stay away from the attractive, yet painfully shy girl with the dark past; a girl nobody likes. But Scott was a stubborn guy who didn’t take no for an answer.Read what happens when things go from strange to worse!Gwen Reaper…a paranormal romance with a dark edge that cuts deep.

My Thoughts: The cover was what originally got me interested in this book and I am seriously glad it did. I am not used to reading novels from a males point of view so it was a bit different but it was not a bad different whatsoever. Scott was a well-developed character that seemed really good at playing football and was a pretty popular guy. Gwen is his complete opposite and that was pretty much what attracted him to her. She was a strange girl who kept to herself but it didn’t take long for her to warm up to Scott. That does not surprise me because Scott is a very impressive character. He has the makings of a snob but isn’t one at all. The plot is also well developed and I think it’s an amazing story. I did see that this novel got an award in 2012 and I believe it was well deserved.

Cover: 5/5
Writing: 4/5
Characters: 5/5
