Summary:


Eloise “Lou” Whittaker can’t shake the feeling she’s forgetting something.

After surviving the explosion of the Poisonfoot Library, she struggles to find her footing again, and she’s grateful Archer Wyatt is there to make sure she’s all right. But Archer seems to be around an awful lot and Lou has trouble controlling herself when she’s with him. She should be thrilled the most popular guy in school wants to be with her, but still, there’s that nagging feeling…

Cooper Reynolds knows he ought to let Lou go. He was putting her at risk by letting her in the first time, and now that she’s a blank slate he should just let her go on blissfully unaware of his curse. But she’s given him a taste of something dangerous… hope.

Can Cooper and an unlikely ally help Lou break free from the spell she’s under?

And can they do it before a new force threatens to destroy the whole town?


My Thoughts:


Hi everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today I have a book, which I got from the author as a gift, a long time ago, and, unfortunately, it’s only now that I’m reviewing it. But there are some good news with it, as this Friday the review of the book 3rd book will go live. However, when the 4th book will come into my possession is still a mystery. But that’s not the case here, correct? But before I move on to the actual review, if you’re new to this series, you can check my review for Autumn – the first book in the series here! And don't be shy share your thoughts with me!

Now, getting back to the review. I loved the book. it was more intense and I never got a chance to even compare it to something else, as I stayed focused on it till the end. As you remember (and if you’re new to series, I apologize for a major spoiler) we were left with a major cliffhanger – Lou losing her memories of Cooper, plus some awesome abilities showcased. So what does Cooper to return her memories of him? In the beginning, he just mopes around having a pity party. But in the end he does come up with a great plan, well involvement o some new characters helps too. But cooper is not the only one who’s trying to return Lou’s memories. The girl has it tough too, and I really enjoyed her character in the book. The description of not being whole because she was missing something is fantastic. Instead of shouting at her to open her eyes or mind you just can’t not feel sympathy towards her. You understand her and you try to help, but you can’t and it sucks full time.

However, nothing is as easy as it seems, as more secrets need to be unraveled and some make your heart pound even after you close the book. The killer is finally narrowed down to a family and not a good kind of family, but just before Cooper and Max find some real info on it a formidable enemy comes back into town. And he takes his job very seriously, series enough to kill an innocent using another innocent. Who’s that? That’s for you to find out. I’m not spoiling this!

So, are you ready to find out what happens to Cooper and Lou? Are you up to reading this great book? Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favorite book or manga! Happy reading!
