My Rating

Synopsis (goodreads):

Jane Jonas is nearing her 16th birthday and troubled by unsettling recurring dreams where the same mysterious boy her age comes to her, telling Jane that they are each other’s destiny. Her mother is increasingly anxious about Jane’s disruptive sleepwalking episodes, but for Jane her dream world and reality are about to collide … 

When she develops a friendship with an enigmatic stranger in town, the blond, uber-cool Evan, it’s exciting, it’s new, and Jane wants him more than she’s ever wanted anybody – until her mystery dream boy gets in the way. 

Now Jane is caught between two worlds: one familiar, but tinged with romance and excitement; the other dark and dangerous, where angels, werewolves, and an irresistible stranger are trying to seduce her …

My Review:

I wanted to read something light. Something that didn’t involve thinking or concentrating about the story. I mean sure the mind does think and make up situations about the potential ending, or resolution of the conflict but I just wanted an easy read.

Dark Heart Forever follows the story of Jane, a loner by choice because of being bullied in high school. Falls for two seemingly amazing guys, Luca and Evan. Classic love triangle. She starts dating Evan but she doesn’t understand her feelings for Luca, so she keeps putting them off as friendship.

Unbeknownst to us, not really, Evan has an agenda. I mean who didn’t guess that? The guy was pretty shady. Period.

Too perfect but managed to have a past, which really didn’t make sense. Anyone who fell for him…seriously? -_-

It was weird. I’ll give it that. The ending pretty much predictable. I mean you kind of figure out guy the girl ends up with. And as much as I don’t enjoy reading love triangles, I found myself reading on. To the point where I actually finished the book.

Quite a lot like Twilight, so you all have a right to be a bit apprehensive. The second book, Dark Heart Rising is on my shelf and because I don’t leave series unfinished, I’ll be reading that soon. Also because, *smiles sheepishly* part of me wants to know what happens next.

Positive: werewolves!
