Bittersweet

The main character Phaedra was my favorite thing about this book. She is very high on sarcasm and very stubborn. She is also very quick witted, though she is not obnoxious. Her quick wit, sarcasm, and stubbornness make her a great main character and also a great heroine. She has powers that are both dangerous and not easy to control, which makes her not safe to be around.

The plot was a little hard to follow at first, as I felt like it was leading up to something but I was not quite sure what it was. When I finally came to the conclusion of the book I realized that everything that I thought made no sense actually did. I also wish that there had been a little bit more romance between Phaedra and Logan.

This book is full of twists and turns and surprises that will keep you reading until the very end. I just wish the characters had more depth. But all in all it was an okay read that has the ability to turn into a great series.


Book Blurb for Bittersweet

Phaedra Thorne's goals in life are simple. Make it to eighteen so she can legally adopt her sister and hope she never becomes like her deranged mother who secretly lives in the attic. They're not the normal hopes and dreams of a kid her age, but then again, Phaedra is anything but typical. Schizophrenia and psychokinesis go hand in hand in her genes. With things always upending or blowing up around her, she’s already halfway there and horrified one of these days she'll be the next to go insane.

Five years have passed since Phaedra has seen her older, estranged brother. She’s hesitant about his return and even more so when he comes bearing a cure for their mother. However, this so-called antidote, having sex with an incubus, comes with a catch that's larger than the statutory rape implications. The incubus who's willing to help the Thornes has his own horrific baggage that's about to upend the Thornes' lives.
