My Thoughts  (Goodreads Synopsis)

 

First Impression:  Ooohhh…look at that cover!

This story wanted to be interesting, it just lost me in the interpretation.  There are so many intriguing elements to this that I wish she could have pulled it off…

With X-men like shifters, and the mystery of what is in the once-conjoined twins blood.  This book, I don’t know, maybe she tried to have too many elements???  I read the whole book hoping it would get better…but…it never did.  Not for me, anyway.  The best thing about this book is the interactions between Lucy and Jared and their slow building romance.  But, even that was somewhat confusing.

 

Sex Factor:  Only talk of it.
