Jekel Loves Hyde

Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this book back in November. I tried to wait as long as I could before reading it, but I couldn't help myself.

Jill Jekel was a good girl. She obeyed all the rules. She never broke them; what her parents said was law. All that changed when Jill's father was murdered. At 17, she was left to take care of the bills, the house and her mother. When she finds out that her father stole her college money right before he died, Jill decides to break the rules. She starts by opening the mysterious box in her father's office. What's inside could be the key to winning a scholarship.

In order to win, Jill decides to ask the brooding Tristen Hyde for help. Once he see's what in the box, he is more than willing to help Jill. As the team of Jekel and Hyde try to recreate the experiments based on the novel, they hope to not only win the prize, but to save Tristen's sanity and possibly his life. That was the plan at least, until Jekel gets a taste of what it’s like to be bad.

I knew a little bit about the book, but it still blew me away . It’s nothing like I’ve ever read - It’s dark, twisted, and romantic all at the same time. It’s been a couple months since I read it, and I am itching to read it again. I can’t wait to see what Fantaskey has for us up next, but I do know I will be the first in line to read it.
