Book Review: Bitter Angel

Book Review: Bitter Angel by Megan Hand

Torn between two realities.
A choice that will mean life or death.
But 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.

My thoughts: I'm a contemporary romance fan, and in spite of the strong relationship Lila has with her boyfriend Jay, the story has really very little romance. So, if you're looking for a feel good, warm fuzzy romantic read, this book is probably not for you. However, that being said, the book is still very entertaining. This is not really paranormal, but there is a hint of it when Lila is seemingly in two places at one time. On one hand, she's safe at home with her boyfriend, Jay. On the other hand, she is experiencing the most horrific night of her life. There is some violence, some strong language and some sexual situations. This book is for more mature, New Adult, readers. At times, I found the reading a bit slow, but once it picked up, there is plenty of action. Lila is stubborn with a capital S, and even though her heart was in the right place, her determination often led her to making less than stellar decisions. Haven't we all been there, done that? If you like a book where the good guy wins, this one is definitely worth a read.
