A Dark Corner - Review

A Dark Corner by J. A. Psoras

Book Blurb
Eric wants to be normal. But hiding in dark corners as a shifter doesn't make it easy. 

Drawn by a vision, Eric goes to the Big City to find his destiny. Alluring Carly is all he's ever wanted in a girl. But Janis, her conniving "besty," always manages to intercept. All of Carly's circle, a group of fast-paced rock n' rollers, are changing. Each corrupted by the seductive front man of burgeoning rock group, "Myth. " Seth's mysterious. Irresistible to women. A dangerous guy with his own secrets and a very dark agenda. His sinister plans include Eric and Carly as she grapples between an unnatural fixation with Seth and a secret crush on Eric. 

Fixated on raising hell, Seth hasn't counted on one detail: if Eric and Carly (who's about to discover her own supernatural twist) ever do get together, they just might be more than he can handle.

My Review
This is a book that pulls you in with secrets and twist, Some you may see coming and some you don't. I like that it keeps you on your toes. A little about the characters. Eric  is just a sweet ole country boy who wants a normal life but being a shifter he just can't manage that. I love Eric he is just so perfect to me. You get to see him develop and grow up more when he goes to the city. Carly runs away from home to live with her best friend and isn't quite normal herself but she isn't sure why. I liked her in some ways and some ways I didn't. When she is turn between the one she can't resist and the obvious right one i wanted to shake her, But that shows you the book is written very well. Janis is Carly's best friend and really need to get it together and realize the world doesn't revolve around her. I don't see how they are friends but she does take Carly in when she needs a place to go. And then we have Seth. What a moron! You seriously need to read this just to see how far he goes wanting to be a big shot rock star. 

If you are looking for a book about shifters, evil deals and much more pick this up! You really get into rooting for Eric and Carly or at least I did. I hated to see the book end and was left wanting lots more. Just because it is so good. I can't reveal secrets or that will ruin the book but trust me when you do get a few nice surprise secrets that jump out at you. Very enjoyable book and well written.
