Release Date: 7/10/2013
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N

Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake. 

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.

The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.

Wicked, wicked magic!

After reading this book I'm kind of having a hard time to find a place to start. It left me with one of those book hangovers that makes you question your take on the book...."Did I hate that character so much that I loved them? Or was I just secretly hoping their demise would come quicker than usual??"
That's what I found myself saying a lot in this book!

At one point after a major turn happened in this book, I found that I was a little at odds with my emotions. My head was screaming, DON'T YOU DARE FEEL SORRY FOR HER, while my heart was all rainbows and unicorns for that bond you could see buried between these two characters. Sometimes you just can't deny how you're going to feel about a character in a book.....

After about 30-40% through is when everything went into full-blast mode! The characters, plot and chemistry sky-rocketed. It was like to book was on steroids, and in a non-roid-rage way! Though you know that it usually does happen when a hot, mysterious dude with a luggage rack full of secrets enters the scene.  This is probably one of the points in the book where I wanted to high-five Brianna, though the reasoning behind her confidence isn't all that right, the fact that she acts on it makes me smile a little bit.

Overall this was a solid read & I would love to see all these characters again....soon!
