started when this blue-eyed Casanova strolled into town. Will falling
into Jackson’s arms mean she’ll be falling victim to a real

I have to say that Divine Vices was definitely not what I expected it to be. To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was glad that it proved to be an awesome read. :)
I was pretty much hooked from the beginning of the book. This was such an interesting and pretty unique read. I would definitely recommend to fans of paranormal romance or suspense.
Cassie was a pretty great character. She was a realistic character and had some unique ways of thinking for someone that age. She had an interesting personality and there were more than a few times I could relate to her. She was different from the other kids and more mature as well. Her friends were nice as well and I enjoyed the fact that they were each different in their own way but still hung out with each other.
Jackson was definitely something else. I was certainly surprised with what we find out at the end of the book. I can't say that I saw it coming. :)
It's not really till near the end that we find out about what is going on in the town and with the characters. Once we do though, it's pretty interesting and I can't wait to find out more about it.
Overall, an interesting and captivating read! I definitely recommend and cannot wait to see where Melissa goes with this series. Go ahead and check it out today!
