"What the hell did you do, Eden?"  He dropped her arm without warning, and she pitched sideways onto the vanity, directly in front of the large mirror hanging over the sink.

Hearing the shower turn on, she gripped the edges of the sink and stared at herself in the mirror.  Red-brown smudges, approximately the size of one of her fingers, drew three short lines across each cheek and one traveling from her hairline to the bridge of her nose.  Like warrior paint.

This book made me want to jump on the roof tops shouting Hallelujah.  Yeah, it's that good.  Looking back, I'm not entirely certain what elements were to blame for my high esteem of this book.  It simply pulled me in and dragged me along.  Though not a short book at 418 pages, I read it in a few hours (maybe eight total).  I couldn't put it down.  The last couple of days, if I got in bed by one in the morning, I was doing good.  And that's with having obligations that require me to be up by 6:30 in the morning.  I was dying on my feet yesterday with five hours sleep.  Brilliant.

Filled with intrigue, sexual tension (and, yeah, some vivid sex scenes), swear words (so, you know I'm happy), double-crosses, murder, mayhem, characters waking up covered in blood, shady organizations, and, of course, main characters with a side they can neither control nor remember the actions of; what's not to love?  

Stewart pairs Eden, the female lead you can't help but like, with Mitch, a character that you should love to hate but just can't seem to.  The characters are deep and, I think, that's part of the reason Mitch is a character I came to like so much.  If he wasn't such a deep character, his abrasiveness would send people running... and does, just not the readers.  I like that Mitch could just as easily been the bad guy of the story... except there are evils far worse out there than Hyde, his alter ego.

Hyde is the type of book that makes you want to run to download the next book in the series.  I just didn't want it to end.  I had to know what was going to happen next.  I won't just recommend this book; you are truly missing out if you let this treasure pass you by.

About the Author:

I am a single mother of two incredible kids who knows the world well enough to put half of my income into therapy accounts for them.

I was a modern dancer, a choreographer, a secretary, a massage therapist, an English teacher, and, for two horrendously guilt-laden days, a carnie. Yeah, that’s right—a carnie. And I let the little kids play until they won a prize, without their parents having to fork-over their entire life savings. Seriously, don’t play those games—you won’t win.

I was a woman who never realized that all of those “to do” lists were attempts at trying something she really wanted “to do”—write. It’s not the form one does it in, just the doing that is important.

And now I am a writer. A tremendously happy, fulfilled writer of urban fantasy, mystery, paranormal romance, and a bunch of other things, all with a comedic element because life is too insane not to poke fun at.
