Goodreads summary

Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.


My thoughts

This was amazing, completely and utterly amazing. Jennifer L. Armentrout did it again. The world, the plot, and the characters where all beautifully crafted. There wasn't a bad word in this whole book. The plot was amazing and it had my on the edge of my set the whole time. Never once did I get bored. The characters where brilliant especially Ember, the writing was outstanding, but that's no surprise since it is a Jennifer L. Armentrout book. Everything was wonderful in this book.
The plot was brilliant, Jennifer L. Armentrout waste no time throwing you and the characters into the plot. It was also really fast paced; it took me a day to finish it. However, it wasn't so fast paced where you couldn't process what just happened before another thing is thrown at your face. It was the perfect pace. There were also so many twists and turns that will blow your mind and shock you to your core.
Another thing about the plot is I for some reason thought that this would be more of a contemp book with some paranormal thrown in. However, it’s not like that, it’s more of a paranormal with some contemporary aspects thrown in. So, that left me off balance for a little while, but after a while I got used to it.
I loved the character of Ember so much. I know some people can perceive her weak and a character that cries every two pages. However, I saw her as a strong and broken character that for the first time in two years doesn't have to do everything. Which leaves her to face her brokenness, which is she doesn't believe that she can be a part of a family again. She just felt like such a strong character to me.
She was also such a relatable character to me. I don't really know why, but it was like most of the decisions or things she would say would be something I would say or a decision I would make.
The relationship between Hyden and Ember felt so real and it developed naturally. As you guessed by now, given that this is a Jennifer L. Armentrout book, their relationship was also H.O.T, because you can't have a Jennifer L. Armentrout book with at least one hot and steamy relationship. And boy was this one hot and steamy.
All in All, this was another fantastic book by the outstanding author Jennifer L. Armentrout. Fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout and people who haven't read her book will be amazed and blown away by the wonderful plot, amazing characters, and brilliant writing.
This book got....
