Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey

All About It:

Jill Jekel has always obeyed her parents' rules--especially the one about never opening the mysterious, old box in her father's office. But when her dad is murdered, and her college savings disappear, she's tempted to peek inside, as the contents might be the key to a lucrative chemistry scholarship.
To improve her odds, Jill enlists the help of gorgeous, brooding Tristen Hyde, who has his own dark secrets locked away. As the team of Jekel and Hyde, they recreate experiments based on the classic novel, hoping not only to win a prize, but to save Tristen's sanity. Maybe his life. But Jill's accidental taste of a formula unleashes her darkest nature and compels her to risk everything--even Tristen's love--just for the thrill of being...bad.

What I Thought:

Play offs of old stories normally do not interest me. My oh my though was this one a switch up for me! It was absolutely and incredibly phenomenal. The characters Jill and Tristen are so lovable that you connect immediately. You feel like Jill, meek and mild and shy. Then you have Tristen who is dark and mysterious and dangerous, hiding a secret so big and so deadly that you cannot help but read on. The romance makes you shudder in anger because you get teased, and teased, and then teased some more until FINALLY it explodes and is amazing. The continuous mix up of feelings makes your heart ache for the lovers. Past the romance though, is murder and mystery and betrayal that is so enticing you will not be able to put the book down, even if you life depended on it. There was so much more than I expected within this story. If you don't believe me, go pick up a copy and then let me know what you think. In short, this novel is more than worth your time! Now go and get a move on before the beast within you takes hold and the chance is gone forever!
