    1. I have to agree with my matey Heather s review of Jekel Loves Hyde If you expect this book to be akin to Jessica s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side in entertainment value, you are up for a huge disappointment While Jessica had some weak points plot wise, they were overshadowed by Lucius snarky personality, humor and some hot vampire biting Jekel Loves Hyde is pretty much a depressing disaster and nothing like Fanteskey s amusing debut.As you probably know, this book is inspired by Stevenson s St [...]

    2. Perhaps I would have enjoyed this story had I liked the work this book was based upon, Dr Jekel and Mr Hyde But alas, I thought it was boring, and as such, passed the same judgment upon this book The characters of both Jill and Tristan are mind numbingly lackluster Jill dresses and acts as though she is a long lost cast member of Little House on the Prairie and Tristan attempts and fails terribly at being enticing Note to the author Your leading men have to be one of three things really hot and [...]

    3. I d read some mixed reviews on Jekel Loves Hyde but I d really enjoyed Beth Fantaskey s book Jessica s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side so I decided I d give this one a try.Jekel Loves Hyde was very different from Jessica Rules If you are looking for of the snarky, arrogant, irresistible Lucius found in Jessica Rules you ll be disappointed Tristen is a completely different type of guy If you don t expect him to be like Lucius and give him a chance you ll probably end up pleased with him.I think [...]

    4. JEKEL LOVES HYDE is a stunning, dark, dangerous and sinfully romantic tale of good girl meets bad boy becomes bad girl to save bad boy Intrigued You should be Those who are fans of Beth Fantaskey s writing JESSICA S GUIDE TO DATING ON THE DARK SIDE will simply devour her newest book Jill Jekel is a good girl, always has been She follows the rules and works hard to be the best Unfortunately, all the hard work in the world couldn t stop her life from falling apart Tragedy struck her family when he [...]

    5. I picked up this book because I enjoyed Beth Fantaskey s Jessica s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side I was expecting another character like Lucius and perhaps yet another Ode to a Lentil Alas, this was not the case.Jekyl Loves Hide has a very cute premise Jill Jekyl and Tristen Hyde are descendants of THE Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde Jill s father has recently died under mysterious circumstances Jill and her mother are struggling for money when it is discovered that Jill s father stole her college fund A [...]

    6. Dang it I really wanted to like this book But the heroine went back and forth between love and hate so often she made me nuts Her friends were all terrible and for a smart girl trope she kept doing stupid stuff.

    7. Jekel Loves Hyde was a cool twist to the classic novel Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde I liked the storyline and thought it was unique and interesting, however, while I adored Jessica s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, I think this one lost a little spark in comparison It s not exactly flat, but I couldn t connect with the characters and didn t like how Jill and Tristen so Tristen felt to formal for there role, at one point I almost thought I was hearing Lucius Jessica s Guide while reading It was lacking t [...]

    8. I really wish I could give this one stars, but it didn t take off like I hoped it would I was confused when the book was over, felt like I d missed something and that s never a good thing Maybe it would have helped had I read the classic Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde before this one since it is referenced quite a bit and not knowing that one could have affected my enjoyment of this story I ll leave that as a possibility.I liked Jill Jekel as a character, but her constant putting herself down, got to be [...]

    9. I had a hard time writing this review, but not because I was conflicted in how I felt about it I really enjoyed this story, but I had the hardest time trying to figure out why First off, I want to say that I haven t read Fantaskey s first book, Jessica s Guide To Dating on the Dark Side It seems like many who liked that book didn t like this one Perhaps the two are too different from each other, and there was a certain set of expectations that weren t met But I m just guessing I read Dr Jeckyll [...]

    10. You can read this review and on my blog I like the idea of a Jekel and Hyde retelling I have never read the original story, but I am familiar enough with it, and I thought the plot was a fantastic idea Tristan Hyde and Jill Jekel are distant descendants of the infamous Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde They both have an interest in chemistry like their ancestors, and Tristan has another dangerous similarity to Mr Hyde When he gets excited, he just might turn into a murderous monster.Jill and Tristan start [...]

    11. My Book Boyfriend Tristen I really really liked him He is so hot He did not want to hurt anyone not even Jill and the way Tristen fought for good when his granddad and dad were bad makes him perfect Most Like Me or who I want to be Jill because the way she fought to find her dads murder when everyone gave up And the way she fought for Tristen She is strong in some way and weak in others Just like me.Want More Yes But I don t think there will be .Recommend Yes Grades 5 and up Enjoy Big Lass Revie [...]

    12. I don t know if there s ever been a flatter character in YA lit than Jill Jekel Fantaskey takes the good girl trope to its very limits, and keeps pushing It would be one thing if she was set up as being absurdly good in order to really contrast with slipping into her bad side, but we only see her embrace her bad side twice, despite the emphasis the jacket copy puts on that particular story element.Most of the characters felt just as flat as Jill The two other girl characters, best friend Becca a [...]

    13. Love, lust and Chemistry We start this book meeting Jill Jekel at her fathers funeral Her father was a scientist and he was murdered one night She s standing at his grave, everyone saying something to her, when Tristen Hyde comes up to her and tells her its going to get easier She doesn t understand why he s there but leaves it alone.Jill starts senior year, and in science class Tristen shows up, commanding in nature, showing up late and not even caring After class Jill, Tristen and a classmate [...]

A description Jill Jekel is painfully shy Her whole life she has avoided the spot light, preferring her books and her art work to hanging out with others.But when her father is murdered she is desperate to connect with someone Desperate to feel loved, safe, protected desperate to stop being plain ole perfect and boring Jill Jekel She finds her salvation in Tristen Hyde Yet, he s harboring a deadly secret One that might destroy her insteadMy rambling thoughts I liked this book a lot I loved the p [...]

    15. I didn t finish this book.I know, I know, how can a person write a review for a book they didn t finish I tried to finish it.I got the book and sat down with a cup of coffee and a bowl of pretzels, and then nothing No zing, no falling into the book and hours later realizing that you ve been sitting in the same spot for hours, the sky outside is dark, the room s grown cold and you are squinting at the words on the page because the lights are off and you re just now waking up to reality.For me eac [...]

    16. Dark Dangerous Suspense.if there is a dark magic is there a dark chemistry hahaSo this book is inspired by Stevenson s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde And Jill Jekel and Tristen Hyde are descendants from Stevenson s fictional characters.I was kind of rethinking if I will give this 4 or 3.5, i don t know it just kinda give me an headache The thoughts of the character really is frustrating and they keep on drinking the formula and on and on, and kind of slow read but it had a very good sense [...]

    17. Overall, it was a good book It kept me interested enough to finish it in one day Or maybe I just needed to return it to the library Nah It was good The ending kinda had me scratching my head, though I wish there had been a little explanation as to what exactly had happened Don t get me wrong, the book doesn t leave you hanging, it just didn t clarify everything enough for me.

    18. Having recently read Jessica s Guide, as in a few days ago, I was excited to read this new book from Fantaskey Admittedly I m never a fan of the original work though I did enjoy the BBC adaptation Jekyl with James Nesbitt from a few years ago , but the idea has always appealed to me Unfortunately after finishing this book I felted than anything else.What I liked was that despite the characters seeming like cliches nerdy girl, violent loner, popular best friend and witchy arch rival , none of th [...]

    19. My Rating 3 DisappointedFree books Gotta love em They are a great chance to try something out that you might not have grabbed if you d known you were paying full price That s how I ended up with my copy of Jekel Loves Hyde.I noticed the book when I was researching Jekyll and Hyde because I was trying to find a way to explain Kesyl s situation in Moon Dance The idea behind this book immediately grabbed my attention As such, when I had an opportunity to grab a freebie at Chapters last weekend and [...]

    20. CLASSICS CARNIVAL REVIEW BY HANNAH OF MY BOOK JOURNEYTo be honest I haven t read the original story that Jekel Loves Hyde was based on And I didn t actually know much about Robert Louis Stevenson s 1886 novella, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde , apart from the fact that the story revolved around Dr Jekyll and his alter ego Mr Hyde, the latter of which causes mayhem in Victorian London Despite how little I knew, this didn t stop me understanding and enjoying Fantaskey s modern continuation [...]

    21. Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey was, dare I say amazing I ve been a fan of Beth Fantaskey since I read Jessica s Guild to Dating on the Dark Side sometime last year It was such a fun, fast read, but with a very dark undertone, much the same as this one I m starting to learn that to be her writing style, and I love it Jekel Loves Hyde was dark without being gory, mysterious without being secretive and all together alluring.We first meet our heroine, Jill Jekel, after the death of her father Wh [...]

    23. This review can originally be found on my blogHey, Tara.Since reading Jessica s Guide and Jessica Rules I ve become quite a fan of Beth Fantaskey, though I have to admit I wasn t too sure about the premise of this one I could forsee a very goody goody character, and a very violent pushy character, and yeah, the whole mental scenario just wasn t working so well for me I was also worried given how I loved the classic novel this was based on, and basically didn t want to ruin it for myself Thankful [...]

    24. It was a very different story from the others I have read It was dark, very dark and twisted that it took some time for me to appreciate the story It was about the story of two people, so different from each other but was drawn by a story that connected their life together, inseparably Jill, the shy, timid girl was mourning her father s death when the most popular and notorious boy, Tristen, went to her side to comfort her and since that faithful day, everything has changed in their lives Jill f [...]

    27. I had studied The Curious Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde for school so I am pretty familiar with the story line but to see it transformed into a YA novel, especially if it contained romance and mystery, hell, this is far interesting than having to read the book for a school project What a coincidence Or fated I supposed that the two lead characters in the story happened to stumble across one another, Tristen Hyde and Jill Jekel Yes, the name was changed, reason Wouldn t bring bad luck to the fa [...]
