Review

Made For You is a creepy tale of love and obsession.

Eva Telling is part of the elite popular crowd in the town of Jessup. Unfortunately that doesn’t protect her from the brutal attack. Left for dead, she  wakes up in hospital with no recollection of what happened or who would do this to her.  Not to mention that since waking up she has developed  the ability to see a person’s death if they touch her. When her estranged best friend, Nate, see Eva at the hospital the years apart evaporates. The feeling Eva felt for Nate intensifies. Nate’s protective and supportive, and it’s a good thing because this deranged killer isn’t finished with Eva. 

When she “sees” the death of her friends Eva does what she can to prevent them from happening.  While trying to identify the killer in the process. As she picks out clues from her visions, with the help, they hope to get an advantage over the killer and stop the deaths until he’s caught.

This is one seriously creepy read,  and will have you guessing who the kill is until the very end.  As this story is told from a couple of different prospective we get to learn more about Eva world and the killers plans.

While Made For You had a very realistic contemporary feel, there still was a touch of the uncanny with Eva’s “death visions”. I was on the edge of my seat wondering when and how the killer would strike next.

This is definitely not for the faint hearted.
