Goodreads Blurb:

Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts, and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other for the first time, in a cold Maine town, they can’t stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel strongly that something, or someone, is haunting them. They’re wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it’s neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It’s Alan’s cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life—and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney, but everything around her…. Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love—and introducing an exciting new YA voice in Steven Wedel—this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

My Review:

Love the cover of this book! I love the font used for the title and I love the girl suspended in the air. I just think that it is very eye-catching and beautiful!

This book was an easy read which I have found to be the same with the Need series by Carrie Jones. I enjoyed the characters individually, but felt that they lost something when they were together. The romance did not seem to have the sparks that I was looking for and it seemed kind of flat.

The storyline, however, was enough to keep me reading! I loved how the Navajo beliefs were worked into it. The book is written from 2 different points of views and if you have been following me for a while, you will know how much that makes me happy. I like reading from a couple of characters point of view to read what is going on from different angles. It also helps you to get to know the characters a little better!

In conclusion, I would suggest that you pick up a copy and read it for the storyline alone. I did enjoy the book, I guess it just did not fascinate me the way that I was so hoping that it would!

“Mom, I promised to behave. It wasn’t easy. I mean, she couldn’t help herself. She was all over this hunk of Navajo manhood and I had to keep telling her I’d promised not to let her violate me. Eventually she wore herself out and fell asleep.”
