Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea - I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review...And I'd finally made my way to this book. Finally. I don't know why I didn't read it sooner, because, overall, it was actually a pretty good book. From the author's writing style to the crazy plot twists, this was one hell of a story, especially for a debut.I enjoyed this whole concept with the Devil and everything. It was interesting to read about.The title and cover were both very interesting, and that tagline. Man, that tagline just makes you wanna read this. You stop fearing the Devil when you're holding his hand.As for the main characters.Violet, our main character, is actually an admirable protagonist. Except sometimes she just gets on your nerves. I like her strength and stubbornness, though, since it proves that she's not weak.River is our mysterious hot guy (I suppose. At least Violet thinks so. All I know is that he has nice feet and nice skin.) I just knew there was something weird about him the second he entered the story. I guess that's thanks to my foreshadowing skills as a reader, but really, it doesn't take much skills at all to find out that there's something weird about him.. but I'll leave that something for you to find out, dear readers who have not yet picked up this book.Neely, despite his weird name, is actually very hot. I like Neely. I like Neely's hair. It's blond. He's just a very good character. You'll see.The only flaw of this book, I have to say, would be the slow-ish plot in the beginning that caused me to blank out at times. But that's about it. Definitely give this a try if you're ready to plunge into some creepy stuff.
