Did you hear from Darynda Jones already? Yes? Awesome, then you know what I have for you will be amazing!
Darynda Jones is the author of the incredible Adult Paranormal series “Charley Davidson”, which is so full of awesome and fun! Now, she recently also published her first Young Adult series: “Darklight” with the first book “Death and The Girl Next Door” which I loved to pieces!
Today, I have the two hot, sexy and mysterious boys Cameron and Jared on the Blog, who spend some time chatting with me. Oh and.. there is a Giveaway at the end of this post too!
See? Full of Awesome today!
and now, please meet THE BOYS….
Hi guys, thank you both so much for taking your time to stop by the Bewitched Bookworms. I … uhm,… hope you both can get along for a few minutes… alright? No beating each other, k?
Maybe, you Cameron sit over there and Jared you can sit beside me? *blushes furiously*
Jared: *flashes a charming grin* You got it.
I feel like there are truly some bad vibrations here in this room. Do you care to elaborate why you seem to …uhm… not like each other so much?
Jared: Well it all—
Cameron: I can tell you exactly why—
Jared: —started the day Cameron—
Cameron: —I wouldn’t spit on him—
Cameron: —if he were on fire.
Oh! Not both at the same time!! Guys! Maybe you start Jared?
Jared: I don’t have a problem with Cameron, but I do have a problem with his perception of me and what I do. He thinks I’m a murderer. He doesn’t see life the way I do. Death is part of the cycle, not an end to it.
Jared: He’ll learn that someday.
Cameron: Not by your hands, reaper.
Cameron, thanks for being so patient! (don’t give me that look!!!) Would you like to share now why you hate Jared so much?
Cameron: Because he’s a thief. He’s a liar. All he knows how to do is cheat and steal. Like now. He steals people’s lives, takes everything they have, and then tries to convince us it’s not the end. That it’s part of a cycle. That’s BS.
Jared: *Leans closer to Cameron* I could prove it to you. Right here. Right now. You won’t feel a thing. You’ll be gone before you can blink.
Cameron: *Closes the distance* Try it.
Ahem. Let’s move on, shall we? Jared what went through your head when you saw Lorelei for the first time?
Jared: You probably don’t want to know that.
Cameron: Sure we do, reaper.
Jared: I’m not a reaper.
Cameron: I mean how old are you anyway? And Lorelei is what? Sixteen? Classy.
Jared: Her soul is old. Beautiful. It’s like the smoldering embers of a fire that flare to life when you least expect them to. Its flames roll softly over her skin, bathing her in a soft, glowing light. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Cameron: And that’s not disturbing at all.
So guys, there is something…. otherworldly about you, would you give us maybe a little hind about what you are?
Cameron: Well, he’s the grim reaper.
Jared: I’m not the grim reaper.
Cameron: And I’m a freak.
Cameron: Better than being a thief and a liar.
Jared: *rolls eyes* So, yeah, my job title is technically the Angel of Death. And Cameron is a nephilim. He’s part angel and part human, which makes him less than nothing in my book, but he was created to protect Lorelei, and for that I’m grateful.
Cameron: At least I have someone I can play touch football with now without worrying about crushing his vertebrae every time I tackle him.
Jared: I like touch football, though it’s much more violent than I would’ve suspected considering the name.
Anything else you’d like to share with my Readers here?
Jared: Not really.
Thanks again for being here and … thanks for not beating each other up :)
Cameron: We’re playing touch football later. We don’t need to beat each other up now.
Jared: Speaking of which, we need to discuss the rules you keep changing.
Cameron: Rules are for wusses.
Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones
Genre: YA, Paranormal | Book 1 in the Darklight series | publication: October 2nd 2012 by St. Martin’s Press
Darynda Jones, author of The New York Times bestselling series that began with First Grave on the Right, brings us Death and the Girl Next Door, a thrilling Young Adult novel garnering high praise and early buzz from major authors
Ten years ago, Lorelei’s parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on.
High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity. What does Jared know about her parents? Why does Cameron tell Jared he can’t have Lorelei? And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real? Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones’s first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.
Quotes from my 5 Star Review:
Kissing – Butterflies – Romance and Mysteries… Before we move to the kissing part, it would be important to point out that the feared love triangle actually did not happen! For once I am grateful not having to choose between tortured & sexy and sexy & mysterious.
Then, we must take a minute to appreciate the kissing scenes. Holy Awesome!! Those kisses were so hot and sexy, I was actually reading them twice – I couldn’t get enough! Imagine scenes where you sigh along with the characters, and scenes that manage to plaster a happy smile on your face! Every girl should be kissed like this…
*insert dreamy face here*
Alluring, mysterious and sexy – Death and the Girl Next Door is a phenomenal read, which will appeal to all fans of the paranormal! Darynda Jones spins an epic tale of good and bad with a mysterious storyline that so far just scratched the surface and managed to get us hooked, desperately wanting to know more! I need More! Now!
