Jekel Loves Hyde

Jekel Loves Hyde - Beth Fantaskey In this take off of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, two teens play the starring roles, of course named Jekel and Hyde. In this version the two are star-crossed lovers who beat the odds of chemistry (literarly). I did enjoy this story and thought the author did a great job voicing both the character of Jill Jekel and Tristen Hyde from each point of view. I just found that parts of the banter between them seemed a little too forced. Overall, this is a great paranormal romance where things are not what they seem. This should be read by older teens since there is some heavy romance (almost sex) and a little violence (verbal and physical).
