Book Review: DARK DIVINE

Title: Dark Divine
Author: Bree Despain
Rating:
Good if...you want a really good, different and deep paranormal romance

Summary (Me):
Growing up Grace, her brother Jude, and Daniel were inseparable. But three years ago Jude came home covered in his blood and Daniel disappeared from everyone's life for good. Nobody talks about that night. Except now Daniel's back. Her brother tells her to stay away from him and she has every intention--she trusts her brother more than anyone but she soon finds all those feelings--that crush--she always had for Daniel as a child is still there. And stronger than ever. She doesn't know who to trust her brother--or Daniel.

My thoughts...
I read this book in one sitting! It was too good to put down. I promise--read chapter one, scene one and you'll be hooked. I loved the dept Bree gives to her characters. Especially Grace and Daniel. Grace was so relateable and real. And Daniel was that bad boy/heart-throb you want to root for--like a cross between Jace Wayland (City of Bones) and Jacob (Twilight)--someone you'll fall for as Grace falls for him. The story did get slightly confusing towards the end--there were these long letters I pretty much just skipped over. But otherwise pretty clear and hard not to get into. Read it for the romance. 4.5/5 Note--The paranormal piece: Daniel is a werewolf. But like you couldn't have guessed it, the signs were way obvious.

Wasn't it great? I'm new to paranormal and my first experience with it was Twilight. I have to say that I liked this one a lot more!

I liked it a lot, too. I loved Grace's character, and I thought the romance between her and Daniel was well-balanced. I was really intrigued by how it ended, especially given Grace's character, and am looking forward to the next book!

I skipped over the letters too. :-) It was a great book though; I loved it!
