“Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who likes coffee and who kisses you in a cemetery… Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.”
SPOILERS. There is spoilers in this review, SPOILERS!!!!
This book was not what i expected. Not at all. I wanted a story about a girl who falls in love with the devil. Not a boy with a weird supernatural power. That is why i love the first part of the book, but was disapointed by the second half. It was not bad, just not what i thought it would be.
The writing was okay. The only thing was how many times she talked about coffee. I swear everybody drinks coffee in this book. Even a 12 years old boy… Like, seriously?
The characters were great. River was my favorite. I really liked him. Love how mysterious he was, love how he’s a liar and you just never know if he is telling the true. The love story didn’t feel real to me. I think River liked Violet only because she help him sleep. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me..
Didn’t expected the ending.
