Date Published: September 27, 2011 Harlequin Teen
Paperback, 342 pages
Summary From Goodreads:
The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.
But the next scream might be for Kaylee.
Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life. Anything.
My Review: (Contains Spoilers)
**DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T READ MY SOUL TO STEAL**
Before I read the book:
This is how it could possibly end:
Tod + Kaylee
Nash + Sabine and
Alec + Emma
And, oddly enough, I would be okay with that. :)
After I read the book:
I was right!! well, partially anyways. I can't believe it! I'm so ecstatic right now, that I'm bouncing off the walls. The last few books that I read had endings that were just kind of... Ehhh. And I was starting to get frustrated. but this book completely took care of that!
Kaylee and Tod's relationship was a long (long, long,long) time coming, even though to some people, it might have seemed rushed.And to those people, I say "You. Are. Crazy!" I have been waiting for this to happen since the second that Tod showed up.
The book still took a few twists that I wasn't expecting, and at one point, I thought that I was going to bawl my eyes out. (if you've read the book already, you'll know what I mean). But everything ended mostly okay, and now I really can't wait to see what happens next.
I love love LOVE Kaylee's relationships with Emma and Alec, and TOD. They are all so prtective of each other, And yes, I still love Nash, even though I think that he could use an itty-bitty attitude adjustment. Gosh, even Sabine is starting to grow on me... I still don't know how I feel about that.
