Our thoughts...
Wow. I’ll start with that. Very few books can keep me guessing as long as this one did, totally unique, thrilling, and mysterious. At the same time romantic and sexy.  SAVE ME AND I'LL SAVE YOU...

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. My other half -- my twin brother, my Finn -- is crazy. 
I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.
I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. 

Dare DuBray. 
He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. 
He has the power to destroy me. 
Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. 
Why? Because of a secret. 
A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. 
You won’t either.

Calla and Finn  are surrounded by death and morbidity. Their father is a mortician and they live in a funeral home. Finn seems to have an obsession with DEATH, death speaks to him.  Cala meets Dare when she drops Finn off for his weekly therapy  appointment. They bond over similar past ordeals and Calla finds that the more time she spends with Dare, the more she feels free from all of her worries. It’s clear, however, that Dare is hiding some things from her and she from him, so as much as they come to like and love each other, there is an unspoken agreement to avoid confrontation about their secrets. But the truth can’t be hidden forever and soon enough, both of their pasts will be revealed.

“There is nothing quite so terrifying as the descension of the human mind into insanity.”
“You’re going to be the death of me,” he says against my neck, his lips brushing my skin.
“Why?” I manage to breathe…
“Because you’re so much better than I deserve.”-Dare

I couldn’t put this book  down, just when I thought I figured out the secret, I was proved wrong. Alluring, thrilling, romantic, and mysterious. Life, death, love, family, reality, insanity, all these aspects draw you into their secrets and keep you entranced until the end. 

Read it!
