Sophomore Year Was Never Supposed to be This Complicated
Ten years ago, Lorelei McAlister’s parents disappeared without a trace, ans she is finally beginning to accept the fact that they’re never coming back. Life must go on. She’s got her grandparents and the support of her best friends, and high school is not quite as painful as she thought it would be.
But This is What Happens When You Fall for the Angel of Death.
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, tough, sexy Jared Kovach – comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other, and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity.
Life as She Knows it is About to Change Forever.
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, Death and the Girl Next Door proves Darynda Jones is a force to be reckoned with.
First part of the story is really slow and I feel like I want to tell the characters the answer to their questions. It’s so irritating reading their inability to guess who Jared is while it’s so obvious from the beginning of story to me. When the story is getting interesting with surprises, the characters still annoyed and bored me. I ended up couldn’t connect with them. I don’t know whether I will read the sequel soon, but if I read I’m surely it will be because of Cameron, I think he is more interesting than Jared. I liked his unpredictable character.
