Ok Hyde by Lauren Stewart, is not a new book but it is new to me, and I am in love with the cover art for this series!
***This novel is intended for adults only. It includes lots of cursing, descriptive sex, biting sarcasm, and dark themes. HYDE was inspired by Stevenson’s novella but is not a retelling, in part because he and this author have very different definitions of ‘bad boy’.
Mitchell Turner is everything women want most in a man — he’s charismatic, successful, and undeniably gorgeous. But he’s not a man — he’s a monster. By venting his rage 24/7, Mitch keeps people out of the danger zone that surrounds him. But, after the most incredible night of his life, he realizes that might not be possible. Except the woman he wakes up with claims she doesn’t remember any of it. And that kind of thing can make a guy insecure.
Eden Colfax is kind, loyal, honest to a fault, and cavity-inducing sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn’t lie, doesn’t curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers’ beds…until the day she does. Then the flashbacks start — places she’s never been, people she’s never met, blood she’s never spilled. And the only person with any answers is a man she never wants to see again.
What they don’t know is that someone is manipulating them, determined to find out exactly what they’re capable of. And when the truth leaves them nothing to hold onto, they will be forced into a partnership neither expected. Or wanted.
But in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can’t even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on earth you should be falling for.
Hmm, sounds pretty good to me. Any book that comes with a warning that explicit, is probably going to be an excellent read!
