ATOMR Blog Tours Presents Betwixt by Melissa Pearl

Beautiful, wild-child Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well. 

Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.

Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it's too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?

MY REVIEW 

5 OF 5 BETWIXT

Betwixt is one of those stories that tares at your heart. Man I have to say I laughed and I cried. In this day and age their is so much bullying going on in schools it is scary. If you are not part of the popular group then you are treated like you don't exist. You are picked on and tormented by the kids who have more and that is just not right. In this case we meet a girl who has it all. She is beautiful,smart, and has the best jock boyfriend a girl could ask for. Her friends are just as cruel as her and she loves the attention they get as a group.

One night changes everything for for Nicole Tepper. She is the popular girl you love to hate and boy oh boy can she be mean. At first I had trouble having any sympathy for her but when she is struck by a car and left for dead I started to feel for her. No one deserves to be treated like that. No matter what they have done. Nicole is left for dead and the only person who can hear her is the one person she dogged out and branded him a freak. Dale Finnigan may have a scar on his face but his heart is made of gold.

Nicole starts to haunt Dale and he wants nothing to do with her because of the pain and humiliation she caused him. But Nicole realizes that he is the only one that can save her so she will stop at nothing to get Dale to help her. Dale is the only other person who can help her besides the person who hit her and wants to finish the job off.

What will Dale do? Will he rescue his tormentor? Will he leave her to die like she should because she is so dam mean? Boy oh boy I loved me some SWOON worthy Dale and how the story ends will surprise you!
