Sophia Destino is supposed to die.
All seventeen-year-old Sophia wants is to coast through her junior year. But with her parents obsessed with her Olympic-swimming-hopeful brother, a psychic best friend with a penchant for reading tarot cards, and prophetic dreams that predict her death—that won’t be easy. As her nightmares begin to come true, Sophia finds herself dodging death and longing for the time when getting over her ex-boyfriend was her biggest problem. Until she meets Leo Knight. The mysterious stranger seems determined to keep her alive—and steal her heart. But Leo has a secret that is about to change everything and Sophia is about to learn that sometimes…your number is up.

Book Rate: 5++++++++++ fantastic stars
Probably one of the best-best books that I have read. And not just this year, but also all my bookaddict life. This book you have to read it so you can feel it.
When I first read its blurb, I was instantly interested on reading it. So, when I got the ARC, I started it asap. And holy crap! As soon as I started getting deeper into the story, I was screwed! And the fun fact about it is that, initially, I didn’t intend to review it for the blog. But, somewhere through the ⅔ of it, I immediatelly changed my mind because I couldn’t leave this insane story out of C. O. B. B.
From where to begin and where to end! Characters, plot, writing. All were off-the-charts amazing. And so damn addictive that I finished it the same day I started it, without almost any break. I simply swallowed it whole. But the big surprise was that the book, which has one hell of a cliffhanger by the way, is the first part of a series whose next book’s release is light years away. Which means that I will be in desperate mode for a long long time!
Though, I’ll try to forget that for awhile and direct my focus on how to describe you the perfectness of it. I know that I may sound a bit excessive but I mean what I say. I am rarely that excited about a book that I sound like a nutcase.
So, the story is about Leo Knight and Sophia Destino. Whose last names I adore, by the way, because they simply suit the characters p e r f e c t l y. Sophia is a teenage girl who suddenly enters a world that she didn’t know it existed but she gets to know it when she gets away from Death’s claws thanks to Leo. And Leo is determined to keep it that way! Because he can’t risk to lose her. And what happens next is more than words can describe. As they come closer and the feelings between them start getting more intense and undeniable, the more things they change. And the end is something that no one can predict until that very moment.
Megan Gaudino is a first-time-read author for me and I have to admit that her writing skills is just WOW! I couldn’t put the book down even for a few seconds. It was one of those rare, fantastic times that a book made me zone out and surrender to its world without a second thought. And I’m extremelly glad that I got to experience it again and that I got to know that amazing author from who I can’t wait see what else she will create that will probably sweep me off my feet once again.
