a world she never thought possible - Divine Vices (Divine Vices #1) by Melissa Parkin

"What did I loved most about this book? The plot twists. This book is far from predictable, which surprised me thoroughly. I was totally expecting a different ending, but I am not disappointed. The way the author uncovers more of the story at a slow pace is delectable. It is like watching a flower in slow bloom. "- Goodreads, Jennifer Aldrich


The last thing sixteen-year-old Cassie Foster needs is trouble, but that doesn’t stop him from finding her. 

Nine months after the tragic accident that killed her mother and sister, this high school junior just wants a fresh start. Settling down in the quiet town of New Haven, Maine, she’s found peace at last…until the new resident bad boy, Jackson Matthews, comes into the picture. 

Arrogant, sarcastic, and devastatingly sexy, he’s the very last thing Cassie wants to entertain. Romance was never part of the plan. But when terrifying circumstances drive these two together, she finds herself in over her head and drawn in by his allure. 

As local girls begin disappearing, Cassie can’t help but wonder if it’s just a coincidence that everything started when this blue-eyed Casanova strolled into town. Will falling into Jackson’s arms mean she’ll be falling victim to a real lady-killer…or worse? 

The answer will open the door to a world she never thought possible.

"As a YA Paranormal Romance, Parkin gives us a story about angels and demons unlike anything currently on the market. The story is wrapped up tight in mystery as Parkin slowly reveals the true motivations behind each person’s acts. This really kept me on the edge of my seat and turning the pages (aka tapping my kindle screen) as quickly as possible. There is a love triangle, super sleuthing, and references to Jane Eyre. I mean seriously, you can’t go wrong with that combo." Goodreads, Romance Bound
