“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I just finished reading Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by: Beth Fantaskey and absolutely love it. Consequently I did my Google stalk of the author.
I absolutely 100% am so thrilled to here that she has a new book coming out this spring.
Jekel Loves Hyde
By: Beth Fantaskey
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.
I am not sure if I will love it the same as I did her first book. The idea of being bad for the sake of it kind of leaves me a little gitchy feeling. BUT the author does amazing characterization, and believable story arcs. So despite what the product summary is, I am more than interested enough in the author to give her next book a try. Plus the title is very enticing.
