4 StarsTo survive, they must embrace what they most despise . . . in themselves and each other.
Mitch Turner is everything women want most in a man charismatic, successful, drop-dead gorgeous. Except he’s not a man—he’s a monster.
The only way Mitch can protect others from his monstrous side is to stop them from getting too close…that and a 7x7 foot cage. Isolated by his genetic curse, he spends his life hurting people emotionally, driving them away before Hyde can harm them physically. But, after a night of the best sex Mitch has ever had, he realizes that might be impossible. Except the woman he was with claims she doesn’t remember any of it.
Eden Colfax is everything men want most, men other than Mitch, that is. She’s kind, honest to a fault and sickeningly sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn’t lie, doesn’t curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers’ beds…until the day she does.
Then the flashbacks start—places she’s never been, people she’s never met, blood she’s never spilled. She discovers she’s split into two parts—the woman she thought she knew and another who is capable of anything. And the only person with any answers is the one man she never wants to see again.
What neither of them know is that someone is watching them both, manipulating them, determined to see just how evil the two of them really are. And when the truth begins to seep through the cracks, leaving them nowhere to turn but each other, they will be forced into a partnership neither had expected.
Because in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can’t even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on Earth you should be falling for.
*** An Urban Fantasy novel intended for adults only, as it includes lots of cursing, descriptive sex, biting sarcasm, and themes similar to those in Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, from which this story was inspired.
Hyde, an Urban Fantasy (Hyde Book I)
Selena's thoughts: This book was recommended to me by a good friend and fellow blogger. While she was reading she PM'd and said, "You will love this!" So naturally I had to buy it.
I will admit to a bit of a lull at the beginning, I had to get in the mindset of the dual POV and the extra "glimpses" into an UNKNOWN POV, but once I was past that I was on my way. I absolutely loved this book. It had the angsty drama going on that I love. It has the paranormal stuff that I LIVE for.
Mitchell is tortured by his Hyde, so much has happen in his life recently and he carries so much guilt that it is eating him alive. Then he meets Eden.... or so he thinks.
Eden and Mitch have a lot more in common than they know. I can't wait to pick up the second book in this series. This ending of Hyde leaves you begging for more!!
