BOOK REVIEW: Death And The Girl Next Door

Title: Death And The Girl Next Door
Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Darklight (Book One)


 Darynda Jones, author of The New York Times bestselling series that began with First Grave on the Right, brings us Death and the Girl Next Door, a thrilling Young Adult novel garnering high praise and early buzz from major authors

Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace.  Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home.  For Lorelei, life goes on.

High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be.  Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it,  standing outside her house in the dark, night after night.  Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school.  Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity.  What does Jared know about her parents?  Why does Cameron tell Jared he can't have Lorelei?  And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real?  Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones's first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.

I admit I expected it to be better, seeing how much I liked the Charley Davidson series. But still, it's been a good read. And although it took me half book for me to start really liking Jared, now I can't deny I love him. There's something about the Angel of Death that I can't help but love. Like in other books about sexy, loving Reapers. Add to the dark, sexy charm, that he's hot and muscled and broad shouldered and mouth watering delicious... well, you can get the picture. He's smoking hot!
And now I can't wait for March to come so I can read the next book "Death, Doom, and Detention". This first book left me with more questions than I'd like. It didn't help that I could read a teaser chapter of the next book. Now I'm even more curious to know what will happen next.
And I'm hoping March would come soon. Though I know it'll seem like ages anyway. 

***4 stars***
