Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey

Jill Jekel has always obeyed her parents’ rules – especially the one about never opening the mysterious, old box in her father’s office. But when her dad is murdered, and her college savings disappear, she's tempted to peek inside, as the contents might be key to a lucrative chemistry scholarship. To better her odds, Jill enlists the help of gorgeous, brooding Tristen Hyde, who has his own dark secrets locked away. As the team of Jekel and Hyde, they recreate experiments based on the classic novel, hoping not only to win a prize, but to save Tristen’s sanity. Maybe his life. But Jill’s accidental taste of a formula unleashes her darkest nature and compels her to risk everything – even Tristen’s love – just for the thrill of being… bad.

This book was… wow. I thought I wouldn’t like it *there have been a lot of books like this lately*. I also thought I wouldn’t really understand it because I haven’t read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When I started reading, I was immediately drawn into the story. It was interesting and dark and I loved it. It was a nice spin/ spin-off of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Awhile back, I tried to read Beth’s other book Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side and I couldn’t really get into it. After reading this, I really want to find a copy of Jessica’s Guide and try to read it again.
All in all, I loved Jekel Loves Hyde. The characters were amazing, as was the story. I totally recommend it.
