"Be careful around Asher. I know he's charming, but he's also very dangerous." "Because he doesn't like to follow rules," I said lightly. "Because he can get you killed"
We were quiet for a few minutes. I leaned my head on his chest and listened to the sound of his breathing.
"You don't have a heartbeat," I realized.
"Does it bother you?" he asked.
"No." I thought for a minute. "As long as you can feel things and care about things."
"It's a misconception that you need a heart to love," Asher whispered into my hair.
SummaryAdd a Summary
A Beautiful Dark was definitely not what I was expecting after reading the synopsis. It was, however, a book that I really enjoyed reading!
Skye is the main character in the story. I found her to be a very likeable character. She was very smart, and very responsible. She's definitely a girl that you can trust. When she finds out that her life isn't what it seems, she doesn't act all crazy and freak out. She takes it in stride and rolls with it. In the end, we find out just what she's capable of, and it's pretty impressive.
Asher and Devin are the new guys at school, and they both seem to have an intense attraction to Skye. I really liked Asher's character. He was funny and a little bit on the snarky side. He really seemed to be into Skye, although you can tell at times he's resisting.
