Honesty is impossible when you don't know the truth to begin with.
Mitchell Turner is everything women want most in a man--he's charismatic, successful, and undeniably gorgeous. But he's not a man--he's a monster. By venting his rage 24/7, Mitch keeps people out of the danger zone that surrounds him. But, after the most incredible night of his life, he realizes that might not be possible. Except the woman he wakes up with claims she doesn't remember any of it. And that kind of thing can make a guy insecure.
Eden Colfax is kind, loyal, honest to a fault, and cavity-inducing sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn't lie, doesn't curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers' beds...until the day she does. Then the flashbacks start--places she's never been, people she's never met, blood she's never spilled. And the only person with any answers is a man she never wants to see again.
What they don't know is that someone is manipulating them, determined to find out exactly what they're capable of. And when the truth leaves them nothing to hold onto, they will be forced into a partnership neither expected. Or wanted.
But in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can't even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on earth you should be falling for.
What I liked: This was different than most Urban Fantasy I read. There is a lot of mystery surrounding not only Mitchell (don't call me Mitch) but Eden as well. The backstories are okay but nothing what I would consider out of the ordinary.
Mitchell's character was easier for me to connect with and understand. Eden is like the synopsis says, almost sickening sweet and naive. I found myself liking Detective Langdon the most.
I really like the fist and last thirds of the book. They kept my attention and I wanted to know what was next.
What I didn't like: The middle third of Hyde almost made me quit. It seemed to drag on and on. Alot of angst and talking but the story didn't move. Over and over the same dilemma and a cliffhanger ending.
Overall, Hyde was so different it was worth it to me. I'm not sure I'll immediately read the next in the series, Jekyll. The cliffhanger ending mostly made me mad but I don't see how Ms Stewart could have done it any other way.
I got Hyde for free on Kindle, which you can't pass up. However, the next in the series, Jekyll, is priced at $3.99 and the last, Strange Case, is priced at $4.99. I think I can wait a bit before I commit to them. You can get all three together for the Kindle at $7.99 which is about a dollar savings.
I can't make a recommendation on this one. Read the synopsis and some of the reviews before you commit to the series.
