All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life…
Redgrave had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children. The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief’s son and Redgrave High’s resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn–in fact, she’s lethal.
But she can’t help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding–human Alec. And then her world falls apart.
A normal life? Now that’s the real fairytale.
I had been hearing about Under My Skin for quite some time, but for some reason I had not read it yet. Under My Skin was a refreshing read with a new spin on paranormal creatures and they function.
Under My Skin was a very enticing read, but at times I found myself slightly confused. There was a very clear overall plot arc, but I felt at times the plot strayed too far from this, never really explaining or giving answers to the questions readers have. This also caused me to be slightly confused as to what was happening in the story at times. This didn’t keep me from reading at an insane speed though.
I really loved the characters in Under My Skin. They were definitely my favorite aspect of the novel. Brit was a quirky, fun character who always provided a bit of fun to the scene. Alec was a big cutie. I really liked him. Eryn was a smart main character, which I really liked.
The ending didn’t fully provide answers, but it definitely intrigued me for the promise of book 2. I will be sure to pick up Second Skin, to hear more of these wonderful characters’ story. Under My Skin had a few flaws, but overall was a book I enjoyed greatly.
