Save me and I’ll save you…

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. 
My other half– my twin brother, my Finn– is crazy. 

I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.

I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. 

Dare DuBray. 

He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. 

He has the power to destroy me. 

Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. 

Why? Because of a secret. 

A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. 

You won’t either.

‘The only thing worse than drowning in grief is sharing a lifeboat with other drowning people.’

W.O.W!! First off!!   DO NOT READ ANY SPOILERS! This is CRUCIAL! Even the tiniest of spoilers could ruin the flow and outcome of this story so go in blind. For that reason our review will not cover any of the story, plots or even characters. Believe us when we say the less you know about this book the better. Take the plunge and discover all the twists, turns and WTF moments for yourself. Trust us, your reading experience will be all the better for it!

‘We all have little tricks we play on our minds to make life bearable.’

One of the things we love to do in these twisty type books is play Detectives. Don’t judge. It’s an odd quirk but it entertains us haha.  When we know the outcome of a twist, so as not to spoil it for each other, we email a neutral party our theory and the percentage we think we’ve worked the reveal/twists out at. Once we finish the book we are sent each other’s email to see how we went.

“Save me, and I’ll save you.”

We both emailed our theories around the 3-4% mark and we were bang on. Now, that’s not to say the events that unfolded didn’t come as a surprise because the way in which they were uncovered; THEY DID. Courtney Cole brilliantly threw in some red herrings and sent us on a goose chase that kept us second guessing ourselves and had us burning up the phone lines constantly exclaiming “I think I’ve changed my mind.” We flipped and flopped and were kept on our toes which was such a riveting and unique experience.

Nocte left our heads spinning as we read.  Secrets, conspiracy theories abound! Hurry up February because WE NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!!

“I like secrets. Everyone’s got ’em.”

For consistency in reviewing we must comment that we found quite a few editing issues but in no way did they have an impact on our enjoyment of the story.

We thoroughly enjoyed this one. The story ebbed and flowed and carried us along with it. Our heads felt as though they were going to explode and we both discussed the details of the book at lengths and think we’re still trying to come to terms and psychologically rationalise the hows and wherefores’.

“I want you to let go. Just a little. You have to.”

A definite recommend for those who love to be kept guessing, who love a twisty plot and an ending that will leave you breathless and NEEDING MORE!

“Words can harm people every bit as much as a weapon.”

For those readers, grab this book!
