Harper's new boyfriend Logan Townsend is everything she never knew she always wanted--tall, muscular, with tousled brown hair that falls effortlessly around his face. But what's most exciting about Logan is that he's exhilaratingly dangerous, and dating him allows Harper to say, "buh bye" to her good-girl past and "hello" to newfound adventure.

There's only one problem with Harper's otherwise heart-stopping romance: Logan's twin brother Daemon. Harper knows he's a bad seed, but she tries to look past his dark, icy stare and his chilling demeanor. After all, he and Logan are a package deal.

Then cow bones start appearing in people's mailboxes, a flock of birds show up dead, and all of the cars in the senior parking lot are given flat tires--and covered with blood-red handprints. Logan insists that Daemon isn't involved--sure, he's had some trouble in the past, but they moved to Harper's quiet northwest Washington town so that they could both start over.

Harper desperately wants to believe Logan, but the more he tries to protect his brother, the more she wonders what she isn't being told. Now, Harper must unearth the hidden secrets of the mysterious Townsend brothers' history if she and Logan are to have any hope of a future. But learning what brought Logan and Daemon to town won't put just her heart in jeopardy... She's playing with her life.

The author of Prada & Prejudice, You Wish, and Ripple delivers a modern-day retelling of a famously gothic tale, full of suspense, lies, and romance.

’m going to start out by saying that I didn’t read any reviews or descriptions going into this book. All I had is the info from the back cover, and I had no idea what to expect. Even though, I had the book figured out pretty fast, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it. A lot.

The book starts out with our heroine on a date, hanging out with a few of her friends. Logan is the new kid in town, and he’s taken by Harper. Everything seems to be going great until Harper forgets her purse in Logan’s truck and has to go to his house to pick it up. What she finds there is a bit more than she can handle. She meets Logan’s brother Daemon and he is of the scary sort. Then, everything changes.
Harper is an interesting character. She lost her mother to her mother’s crazy ways, so Harper stays cautious, making sure her life is safe. Logan works on getting her out of her little shell, taking her list of ten things she’s afraid of and making it into ten things she has to do. Harper grows as a character tremendously. She becomes a stronger character, and fights to become the person she wants to be. Logan is an interesting character, and so is Daemon. I enjoyed watching Mandy creating these two in contrast because they’re so different. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters and their development. Harper’s cousin was a fun addition, so was Harper’s best friend, and B was one of my favorites!
Overall, this book was on intense ride. Mandy makes this story so real, you fell like glancing over your shoulder as you walk down the street. This book was definitely worth the read!
