Book Description:
Save me and I'll save you...

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole.
My other half-- my twin brother, my Finn-- is crazy. 

I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.

I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. 

Dare DuBray. 

He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. 

He has the power to destroy me. 

Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. 

Why? Because of a secret. 

A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. 

You won’t either. 












Wow, just, wow.

I have always loved Cole's work but this, this was undeniably her best novel yet.

This truly blew me away. It messed with my head and my heart and everything in between.

I can't even go into any detail but this was an amazing read and I want book two now, like now now, more so than I think I have ever wanted a second book to be here.

Calla, Finn, Dare, I love them all. This is one of those stories that makes it impossible to pick anything else up afterward because you need time to process and because most of all, whatever you pick up next won't even come close to comparing to it.

This was quite the roller coaster, twisty, turning, stomach heaving, ride and I soaked it up, threw my hands in the air, let go and enjoyed the rush.

  3. From your review I gather that the inside of this book was just as beautiful as the cover. I keep thinking it's paranormal, but it's not. Ah, how I love a twisty turvy read!

  11. That blurb makes me so curious! Yeah hard to review without spoiling anything. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Must make for a bad book hangover though. Does it end to be continued or was it just that good?
