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?
The second book in this series has impressed me just as much as the first. I have been looking forward to this novel for a while, and decided to just sit down one day and read it from one end to the other. After doing just that I have to congratulate the author on a gripping sequel to the first book. After all the foreshadowing, I look forward to the continuation of the story of Cooper and Lou.
My heart broke for Cooper, who finally found someone to give him hope for a future, except she can’t remember him, and he has been warned that reminding her will only hurt her more. He had to watch his girl taken by the enemy, and to get her back he needs an ally who is as much a social outcast as he is. Oh, and he only has 10 months left to be human.
Lou came out of an accidental explosion missing something, and nobody is bothering to tell her what it is. All she knows is that she is suddenly dating the most popular guy at school, but far more interested in the Chemistry partner she seems to have forgotten everything about. I was totally on edge as she constantly tried to restore memories everyone else seemed to want to stay gone.
Some interesting information finally comes around in this book, and it was definitely worth the read. This novel was heart-wrenchingly, lightheartedly, desperately, unfairly enjoyable to read. Special thanks to Sierra Dean for giving me a copy of this in exchange for my honest review.
