Wendy is just the average girl, she even thought of herself as invisible or wallflower… Her world consists of her absentee parents and her two very close friends, Halle and Jackson. But one incident changed her fate… It changed her: she got bolder, she got swooned by boys and got wanted by a killer!

The story started with Wendy discussing with her two close friends Halle and Jackson the killings that have been happening in the woods. Nobody could pinpoint who did it, there were speculations though, like a cult or a witch did it but even the police really could not find who. The three friends were concerned, but not enough to change their daily activities. So, life went on for them…

Wendy survived an incident and that’s when her life became exciting! Two new guys at her school are going after her. Really! Two hot, awesome guys! Brandt is a new student, totally sweet and within her age. And here comes Matt, the new school librarian, a little older and relationship is definitely a big no but this guy’s smoking hot! And what are you going to do if these two are wooing you? OMG, I am going to die!!!

While Wendy is on cloud nine, a death threat comes her way through dreams. “Run Wendy run! Death is coming for you…” Things got a little more steamy then and an unpredictable twist at the end of the story!

At the beginning, I thought this book is just a so-so, the usual teenager love story but it totally caught me off guard! I didn’t expect that thing to happen. Knowing the truth about her, about her family shook me more than it shook Wendy!

This is an easy read book, I love the plot, the characters and the writing. I can't wait for Dancing with Demon!

I got this book from the Author for review, in participating of the blog tour.
It has no way affected my review of the book.

About the Author

I am a biology nerd who decided it was more fun writing than dissecting. I have written two novels and my third will be out this summer. I live on coffee and read like a robot. My husband and two italian greyhounds usually have to tear me away from the computer...imagine that. :)
