Review: Hyde, an Urban Fantasy by Lauren Stewart


To survive, they must embrace what they most despise . . . in themselves and each other.

Mitch Turner is everything women want most in a man -charismatic, successful, drop-dead gorgeous. Except he’s not a man -he’s a monster.

The only way Mitch can protect others from his monstrous side is to stop them from getting too close…that and a 7x7 foot cage. Isolated by his genetic curse, he spends his life hurting people emotionally, driving them away before Hyde can harm them physically. But, after a night of the best sex Mitch has ever had, he realizes that might be impossible. Except the woman he was with claims she doesn’t remember any of it.

Eden Colfax is everything men want most, men other than Mitch, that is. She’s kind, honest to a fault and sickeningly sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn’t lie, doesn’t curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers’ beds…until the day she does.

Then the flashbacks start—places she’s never been, people she’s never met, blood she’s never spilled. She discovers she’s split into two parts—the woman she thought she knew and another who is capable of anything. And the only person with any answers is the one man she never wants to see again.

What neither of them know is that someone is watching them both, manipulating them, determined to see just how evil the two of them really are. And when the truth begins to seep through the cracks, leaving them nowhere to turn but each other, they will be forced into a partnership neither had expected.

Because in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can’t even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on Earth you should be falling for.

*** This novel is intended for adults only, as it includes lots of cursing, descriptive sex, biting sarcasm, and themes similar to those in Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, from which this story was inspired.

My Review:

Mitchell – but never Mitch – Turner has a deep dark secret. He turns into a monster (Hyde) once a month and can do nothing to stop it. He's a life coach that does speaking engagements all over the world and his faithful and reliable assistant, Jolie Cabot, keeps Mitchell on schedule, among other things like keeping him drugged with a serum to keep who he calls Hyde in check.

Mitchell has a wild night of sex with a hot chick, Eden Colfax, and wonders when he can see her again. But Eden is freaking out that she's in bed with a stranger and doesn't remember having sex with Mitchell at all. She claims that she was sleepwalking which pisses Mitchell off.

Eden also turns into a monster (Chastity) and doesn't know why. She keeps ending up at Mitchell's doorstep after Chastity has been let out. Mitchell is fit to be tied by Eden's actions, yet he can't deny there is something between them. Yet Eden is the only one that can call Mitchell~Mitch like his sister did without him pitching a fit.

Jolie is angry and jealous of Eden, yet wants to find a way to eliminate the competition. Eden's best friend, Carter, wants a relationship with Eden that is more than friendship, but Eden only thinks of Carter as a friend.

Jolie is being threatened by her bosses to make sure that Eden and Mitchell get together on their own, or they'll step in. But just who are Jolie's other bosses? Can Mitchell accept Hyde? Can Eden accept Chastity? Will Mitchell and Eden get together? What about Jolie and Carter? Your answers await you in Hyde.
