Review: Entangled by Nikki Jefford

Title: Entangled (Spellbound #1)
Author: Nikki Jefford
Kindle Edition; 303 pages

Hiding her powers was never a problem for seventeen-year-old Graylee Perez. Not until her diabolical twin sister decided to go on a rampage that could expose them all or get someone hurt.

To add to the aggravation, coven reject Raj McKenna catches Gray performing a complex spell and is convinced they would make a powerful couple. He can delude himself all he wants. Gray has sworn off dating warlocks, especially delinquents who play with fire.

But even Gray’s mysterious death won’t deter Raj, not after Gray is brought back from the great beyond. Only she’s not truly back. Her body’s still six feet under and she’s on borrowed time. There are forces threatening Gray’s existence and a powerful wizard willing to help . . . for a price. Gray doesn’t know who to trust or how long she has left before she vanishes for good, but she’s determined to stick around no matter what the cost.

A spellbinding read!

What would you do when you wake up one morning and realized you’ve been dead for a couple of months, and then your evil twin sister came to possess your body and the next day, everything is back to normal? How twisted and cool is that?

Twin sisters: both are witches, GrayLee and Charlene, total opposites –  the other wanted to jump off from the roof but floated after getting her heart broken; the other died mysteriously because of SUDS (Sudden Death Syndrome)…

The other girl resurrected but had to be alive every other day – using her other twin’s body.. Freaky right? It was and it was full of twists! Twin life has never been this so much…. entangled! This is the first time I’ve read something like twins sharing a body, while the other one is already dead. I couldn’t get my hands off this book once I started reading it.

OKay, so it was like a battle of the good twin versus the bad twin. GrayLee died but was resurrected and can only live through her twin sister’s body every other day. Charlene, on the other, was flabbergasted and had left numerous rules and lists for her dead twin to do while Gray possessed her body. Yes, they could only communicate with each other through letters. Because they cannot see each other, they are unable to slap each other.. Which was what they’d always wanted to do. LOL.. Their friends and boys were mystified with their behavior, but Raj McKenna knew better. The handsome Indian warlock was talented and got a lot of tricks up his sleeves, and was very handsome. He knew something was off and I loved that he was the one who was helping them fix the fiasco.

The other characters were equally entertaining and badass. I love Raj who was quite complicated and often misunderstood, I like Adrian Montez, the warlock with no powers, I love his Nan, too. Okay, I also liked Ryan, even though he was the evil one and a bad influence, but he was effective in being the villain next to Charlene.. And Stacey Morehouse, I’m beginning to like her, too. But best of all, I love Mommy Perez who should really be awarded the Mom of the Year.

I love how the author Nikki Jefford built everyone’s character, especially GrayLee’s. Gray was awesome from start to finish. But I would want to know what goes inside Charlene’s minds when she did those dark magical stuffs, too.. I want to understand why she had to resort to doing those crazy spells and incantations, why she loathed her twin so much! I want to know why was she so crazy in love with a dummy like Blake. I want to kill her myself for all that she’d done to Gray! Ugh!

Lastly, you know why I love this book so much? It’s the date Gray had died and the day everything changed – February 9. Why? Because it’s my birthday. That’s my birthday.. and everything related to Feb 9 always fascinate me. Am I freaky or what? LOL.

Anyway, the ending was totally heart-stopping and awesome at the same time! The purging or abduction, and then the new body possession, it all blew me away. I love it!!! Kudos to Nikki Jefford for creating this one-of-a-kind spellbinding tale. Can’t wait to read the next! 🙂
