I found the characters to be very relatable and realistic and the story line intriguing and quick paced.
I would HIGHLY recommend it and have already told most of my friends to get it.
Trust me, amazing book!
'Hyde' is dark, snarky, violent, mysterious, tense and funny, with an unusual and unexpected love story at its heart.
Mitch and Eden could have been yet another cookie-cutter alpha/bad boy and ingenue couple, but the strengths and vulnerabilities of each make them relatable and empathetic despite the urban fantasy nature of the story.
There's gasp aloud moments aplenty in this book, and although it ends on a cliffhanger (which would normally have me incandescent with rage), the actual story arc of book one IS complete, and the teasers into book two are wholly unexpected and well done.
This book is NOT for you if you object to: rude language, fairly graphic sex, violence and plot twists.
If you want to read something fresh, exciting and completely gripping and can deal with all of that. I can't recommend it highly enough. Five emphatic and slightly overexcited stars :-)
Once I had read a couple of chapters I knew I liked it, and once I was about a quarter through it I loved it! It is well written and has a great storyline full of romance (not the instant mushy kind), mystery, murder and intrigue. It was great. I read a lot and a large amount of the books I read are PNR's so it was refreshing to read one that strayed away from vamps, werewolves, fairies etc, without being completely rubbish as I have found a lot of others to be.
The main characters were strong, and although the lead male isn't always nice, you read from his point of view and see why is how he is and the genuine reasons behind his actions. I already recommended this book to someone before I finished it and I will recommend it to others as well.
Now to download parts 2 and 3 ;)
The 'Hyde' side:
(1) The central plot: If you are looking for a story similar to the original Jekyll and Hyde, chances are this book will be a let-down. It more resembles a love story of the 50 Shades Trilogy variety. With all the bad that is implied about Hyde and Chastity, mostly these so-called monsters spend their time getting naked, talking dirty and trying to entice the other (in their Jekyll form) to have kinky sex with them. Okay it's dark behaviour but hardly monstrous.
Eden and Mitch are too busy rubbing each other the wrong way to pay attention to the crucial stuff. Why are notes left for Eden from a third party telling her Mitch can help her? Who wrote them? How did Eden break through a wall to escape her apartment? How come her room mate, Carter, didn't hear her breaking through the wall? (He is on medication is not an acceptable answer.) Who has the power to stop the police investigating Mitch's sister's murder? Who would want to? Is it a coincidence that both Hyde and Chastity were present on the night Shelly died? Admittedly, some of these questions do enter Mitch's mind, but they exit it again soon after. You can't help but come to the conclusion he's not the sharpest tool in the box.Read more ›
