Review and Spotlight (& Giveaway): Divide by Jessa Russo Book Tour


From senior class president to dejected social outcast, with just the flick of a match.

 After accusations of torching her ex-boyfriend’s home are followed by the mysterious poisoning of her ex-best friend, seventeen-year-old Holland Briggs assumes her life is over. And it is. But not in the way she thinks.

As Holland learns the truth about her cursed fate—that she is descended from the Beast most have only ever heard of in fairytales—she unites with an unlikely ally, good-looking newcomer Mick Stevenson.

Mick knows more about Holland’s twisted history than she does, and enlightening as it is to learn about, his suggestion for a cure is unsettling at best. Holland must fall in love with Mick in order to break the spell, and save their future generations from repeating her cursed fate. Having sworn off love after the betrayals of her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend, this may be difficult to accomplish.

Complicating things further for Holland and Mick, time runs out, and Holland’s change begins way before schedule. With Holland quickly morphing into a dangerous mythical creature, Mick struggles to save her.

Should they fail, Holland will be lost to the beast inside her forever.

First of all, a huge thanks to Bewitching Book Tours and Jessa Russo for a copy of this novel! I was given Divide in exchange for an honest review.

Something strange is happening to Holland Briggs. As if high school isn’t complicated enough, everyone at school believes that she set fire to her ex’s home. Holland denies all of the accusations, but she can’t deny that something dark, something menacing is growing inside of her.

Enter Mick: a kind, wickedly attractive stranger. Or is he really a stranger? Mick knows that it is up to him to rescue Holland from her beastly side or she’ll be lost forever. Can he save her?

I was really excited when I discovered that this book was loosely based on Beauty and the Beast. It’s one of my absolutely favorite fairy tales! Continue reading
