Torn between two realities.
A choice that will mean life or death.
She won’t know anything… until she wakes up.
College sophomore, Lila Spencer lived Friday night twice. She doesn’t know how or why, just that she did. As if she split in half and went in two different directions.
Out clubbing with her friends, Heather and Nilah, the girls rock it out and party hard. What begins as an innocent night will lead to a deadly fight for their lives, and Lila might be their only chance for survival.
In bed with her boyfriend, Jay, Lila is safe and warm as she drifts to sleep in the arms of the man she loves. Until she is sucked into a horrifying nightmare of her friends’ deaths.
As the sunlight warms her face on Saturday morning, the two scenarios collide. But there can be only one outcome. Will she wake up in her warm bed with Jay by her side, devastated and grieving for her friends? Or was she there to save them?
The answer is just the beginning.
I was provided with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book was different than I expected, but I think that is a good thing. There is more suspense than anything, which I found to be enjoyable because I kept wanting to tap my iPad to get to the next page and find out what happens next.
The story revolved around Lilah and her horrifying dream of her friends being involved in a violent crime and dying. When Lilah wakes, she is determined to find out if this really happens. She feels as if she lived that night twice, in two different places. Did it really happen? Read the book to find out! I’m not telling.
I will praise the author for her writing style. It was intense, it draws you in and she developed an interesting story. The girly part of me wishes there were more romance, but I totally understand why the main attraction of this book was the suspense. I felt like I was along for the ride. It truly felt like I was watching a movie. At one point, I couldn't tell if Lilah's dream was real. The author did a great job in keeping the reader guessing and even questioning what I thought was real or not real.
Overall I gave this story 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the book because it was different. I could not have guessed the ending, which intrigued me more. I look forward to more from this author.

At twelve, Megan decided to write a novel. A month later, she quit. A reading junkie by nature, she started writing again in her twenties as a way to get the voices out, because who wouldn't want to create a Real Living Person out of thin air? Megan also plays the piano and sings. She teaches little kids and takes pictures of pretty butterflies. She eats way too much chocolate, is sort of a mad scientist with her blender, and spends an unhealthy amount of time LOLing on Facebook and Twitter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and very smiley son. Bitter Angel is her first published novel.
