"Hex, A Witch and Angel Tale"

by Ramona Wray, YA, 2010, 242p, rating=4
*Won this book way back in May from Emi @Oktopusink ...finally got to reading it.  Thanks again Emi!
Like most girls at Rosemound High School, seventeen-year-old Lily Crane is acutely aware of Ryder Kingscott. Hands down the cutest guy in school, Ryder is cool, mysterious, and utterly untouchable…especially for Lily. For when she touches someone, Lily instantly learns all about their lives. And while such a skill might seem nifty, in truth it is wrecking Lily’s life. So she is shocked when Ryder asks her out — and even more shocked to discover he has a rival. Lucian Bell is the gorgeous new kid who can’t take his eyes off of Lily. Being pursued by two hotties should make a girl happy, but Lily is skeptical. The boys act as if they’ve met before, hating each other with a passion that could only be rooted in a dark, dangerous past. A past full of terrible secrets. The kind of secrets that could get a girl killed. (book cover)

That ending was kick-donkey!!! It's the reason that I gave this book a 4 stars because prior to that things weren't looking so great.  There was so much teasing that I found myself saying, "Tell me already 'cause you're looking at 2 stars!". 

So did the ending make the tedious read worth it?  Not exactly because I'm not very patient with certain things, therefore I would have liked less beating around the bush.  That said, I would tell you (those impatient like me) to skim or get the gist of the story and then savor the last 50 pages ..the twist was incredible!!

What and when is your next book Ms Wray?  I'll look out for it because this book made me happy and I want to be happy again!!  :)
