Death and the Girl Next Door
By : Darynda Jones
Ten years ago, Lorelei’s parents disappeared without a trace. She’s being raised by her grandparents and is, well, in all honesty, kind of pathetic.
I…have mixed feelings about this book. I thought it was going to be all love-triangeish and actiony. It…was…sort of.
I admit to there being action and cool with a lot of fighting and bleeding. But the love-triangle. I was…disappointed.
Cameron Lusk, the well appointed loner boy, is cool. He’s creepy at first and all you want to do is yell at him, punch him, and run away. But then he explains some stuff and you figure out that he’s actually a cool guy. And doesn’t like Lorelei at all. What??? At all???
I was so looking forward to the love triangle in this book but nope…*sigh*…but it seems that he actually has feelings for Lorelei’s BFF Brooke, who’s totally awesome! So i guess i approve but…still.
Now, Jared Kovach…well…he is tough, and sexy. My expectations were filled. But he’s also sweet, kind, and holds doors open for her. And he’s death! Yay!
And its true that the two boys hated on each other but not because of her! She reminded me of Sooki from TrueBlood.
It was a really good book and the love story is a good one! I recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery, love story, and a nice, yet sexy guy. Oh, and a lot of fighting. A lot of fighting.
There’s no book trailer! Boo!
