“Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking. 
Sixteen year old Mercy Moore’s life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.” (Goodreads)

This is what it was like when I finished reading this book:


Yeah… It was a bit awkward when my mom saw me like that… MOVING ON!

This was not what I was expecting at all. Hell! I’ve postponed reading this book for so long and now I don’t even know why. Mercy, the heroine is a succubus who can’t even KISS without killing (or almost killing) the other person. So, let me get this straight: if my mom knew I wanted to have a normal life and knew HOW I could do that and didn’t teach me I wouldn’t be as calm and nice as Mercy was. I would probably do this:


and this


Ok… Maybe I wouldn’t be THAT bitchy but I would say what I was thinking! Now, I know her mother had her reasons (I’m hoping to find what they were in the next book) and she was doing what had to be done, but Mercy never said anything! I’m not saying you shouldn’t do what your mother tells you but say what you’re thinking girl!


Not that I don’t like Luke, I just like Flynn better. And I actually have a thing for Sebastian, I just have a feeling he will turn out bad. Ok! I know he IS bad. He is a demon! But he was the good guy in this book so… About Paul, what is Mercy doing???


I can’t even… Paul is being a hypocrit! He is dating while he is in love with her but doesn’t want her to date if she is in love with him. Just WHAT? And Mercy, you love Luke, you know that, so why are you always thinking that you love Paul. Insane, this is just insane.

And by the end of the book I was like


because I want her to stay with Flynn and didn’t want her to break up with Luke if she didn’t stay with him (Luke is second place in my heart ahaha) and like this


If you’re a fan of supernatural and a sucker for romace go check this book right now!
