Allison McKready is a succubus. So is her twin sister. But while Allison spends her summer break hiding in the library behind her Goth makeup, Jade fools around as often as she can. Allison can’t believe Jade would ignore their mother’s fatal example so recklessly, but concealing a cursed bloodline and its dangerous effects is far from Allison’s only problem. Mean girl Julie’s snob mob is determined to ruin her summer, and Aunt Sarah’s Bible thumping is getting louder. Only her new friend, Ren Fisher, offers safe haven from the chaos of her life.

When one of Jade’s risky dates leads to humiliation and sudden tragedy, Allison reels, and Ren catches her. But as her feelings for him grow, so does her fear that she’ll hurt him—or worse—in an unguarded moment. The choice is coming—love him or save him—but Allison might not live to make it. One way or another, the curse will have its due.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The author has never asked me or tried to influence me for a positive review, nor have I promised one.

My Impressions:

Plot:

The plot starts off a bit slow but then picks up pace, strong with some really well-done twits. Extremely well done

Characters:

Allison and Jade McKready, twin sisters, Aunt Sarah’s and Ren Fisher.

Writing:

Into a Million Pieces is a young adult paranormal romance.about succubi! Beginning this book I had no idea what a succubus was.Allison and her twin sister, Jade are both succubi. But they are as different as night and day. Jade enjoys the hold she has over boys and basks in their unending infatuations of her. She embraces what she is and she loves kissing boys but stops short of having sex with them as she knows this will only end in tragedy. Allison on the other hand is scared of her power and dresses goth to hide herself and goes out of her way to stay away from every single male. She remembers too well what happen when her mom went an a sex spree and ended up killing herself when they were both very little. They live with their aunt, who is a religious freak who stuffs religion down their throat and urged to steer clear of guys. Despite the way Allison dresses she meats Ren at the library, which is where she likes to spend her summer hiding out. Somehow Ren sees through the facade to the beautiful girl inside, but they can never be anything more than friends. Or can they? Allison’s and Ren’s relationship moves beyond the friend-zone with consequences, but Ren is willing to take the risk, even if Allison isn’t.

Then her twin sister, Jade’s, riskier behavior comes back to bite her. Jades messes with the wrong guy and ends up getting beat up by him for not “putting out”. He spreads lies about her all over the internet and overnight she goes from being the most popular girl to being called a whore who drugs men to force them to have sex with her. Jade can’t face it and ends up committing suicide or does she? Ren is there for Allison, taking their friendship to yet another level.The Detective working the case finds that Jade didn’t commit suicide and all evidence points to the aunt. The ending wrapped up all the main points. A must read for those who love paranormal mystery and romance.

About the Author:

Angela V. Cook lives a very unexciting, but never boring, life with her husband and two children just outside of Detroit. Like most writers, she’s been making up stories for as long as she can remember and can’t imagine a life that doesn’t involve creating worlds.

Angela loves to write novels for teens because it’s the best outlet for her sarcastic personality, immature sense of humor, and love of romantic firsts. Her idea of the perfect day involves a quiet house, a good book, and a piece of cheesecake. Or two.

The Verdict:

Highly Recommended
