Description: Jill Jekel has always obeyed her parents’ rules – especially the one about never opening the mysterious, old box in her father’s office. But when her dad is murdered, and her college savings disappear, she's tempted to peek inside, as the contents might be key to a lucrative chemistry scholarship.
To better her odds, Jill enlists the help of gorgeous, brooding Tristen Hyde, who has his own dark secrets locked away. As the team of Jekel and Hyde, they recreate experiments based on the classic novel, hoping not only to win a prize, but to save Tristen’s sanity. Maybe his life. But Jill’s accidental taste of a formula unleashes her darkest nature and compels her to risk everything – even Tristen’s love – just for the thrill of being… bad.
After reading Jessica's Guide to Dating the Dark Side, I highly doubt I will pick up Jekel Loves Hyde. I mean, it is an interesting concept since there aren't many teen novels based upon Jekyll and Hyde, but since I had a really difficult time reading the author's debut, I don't think I want to go through another.
However, I love the trailer for this novel. I think this is an entry to Beth's contest that just ended yesterday?
Anyway, has anyone read Jessica's Guide to Dating the Dark Side who ended up disliking it but when read Jekel Loves Hyde, liked this novel instead?
