Goodreads Summary: "Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him—but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent—and irresistible—adversary, before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.
What do you do when the boy of your dreams is too bad to be true?"
- Sitting in my bookshelf, I haven't picked it up for a few years, but now when I finally do, I'm very surprised and shocked. I didn't like this at all, except for the beginning.
- It was very fast-paced and interesting in the beginning. I thought that it was going somewhere, but I guess that I was wrong, it was definitely out of my expectations. I needed something, wiser.
- I think that Candice was a weak character. I didn't see anything special about her and I didn't see her as a fighter. I wanted her to be stronger in that sense.
- Sin wasn't a good character. I didn't feel his strength and his well-being of being a character. I needed much more from this novel but I didn't get that.
