(Synopsis from Goodreads) Hockey-obsessed tomboy Eleanor Westley has never been the object of a guy's affection before. So when the hottest boy she's ever seen moves in across the street and starts treating her like she's the center of his universe, naturally she's going to be a little skeptical. But everything starts to make sense when girls who look just like Ellie start dying all around the city. Obviously the new guy is the killer, and of course he only likes her because he wants to slice her into tiny pieces. Right?
The more Ellie gets to know Seth the more she's convinced he's a psychopathic killer. Problem is, he's the sweetest psychopathic killer she's ever met. Not to mention he's brutally hot. No matter how hard she tries, she can't help but fall for him. Will Ellie find true love, or will her summer of firsts turn out to be a summer of lasts?
This book was really hard for me to rate. I wish there were half stars because this book was more like a 3 1/2 then just a 3. This story was just a little over the top for my taste. It wasn't all bad, I was cracking up more often than not. I loved that each character had such a strong personality. Everyone was different but you were still drawn to them all.
Ellie is a 15 year, hockey loving tomboy. Her 3 best friends "the J's" are off at hockey camp. She now has to find something to do for the summer. Across the street moves in Seth. Seth of course is ridiculously hot and mysterious. He moves to Detroit from California. He works out every morning in his garage which provides Ellie and her sister Angela some serious entertainment. Angela is a super girly girl who is dying to change Ellie and make her into a girl. The sister are constantly at each others throats but this hottie is able to bring anyone together. Right after the sisters meet Seth a serial killer pops up on the map. He's after teenage girls with red hair and hazel eyes just like Ellie. The girls then go back and forth between deciding if Seth is good or bad. Ellie's life completely changes but her fierceness and sarcasm never change. Even when her appearance changes and she falls in love, she still is quick to throw a jab.
What I didn't like was how corny it could get. Ellie was super innocent and I liked that about her but her sister seemed to want to ruin it half the time. Seth was crazy. I get that was part of the character he was playing but come on dude you have to be out your mind to stay with someone to insane.
Everyone has a different taste so I would say you should give it a try and decide for yourself.
My rating: 3.5
