Delilah and Gavin’s new love is threatened by a force uncomfortably close to home in this haunting novel from New York Times bestselling duo Christina Lauren, authors of Beautiful Bastard.
His shirt is black, jeans are black, and shaggy black hair falls into his eyes. And when Gavin looks up at Delilah, the dark eyes shadowed with bluish circles seem to flicker to life.
He lives in that house, the one at the edge of town. Spooky and maybe haunted. Something worse than haunted. And Gavin is trapped by its secrets.
Delilah and Gavin can’t resist each other. But staying together will exact a price beyond their imagining.
The House is the book you want to read this month. Can you say creeeeeee-py! You know when you were a little kid and in your neighborhood existed that one house that everyone always stayed away from or talked about, it could have been due to how scary it looked or the people that lived in it. Well The House is that house!!!
You follow the story of Delilah and how she goes from boarding school back to public school and the why she moves back to her old town. Then she sees the boy she had a crush on before she was sent away to boarding school. (he was the reason to begin with that she was sent away). That would be Gavin and he is that boy that lives in the house everyone was dared to go inside when they were little kids but didn't. Now everyone just ignores it exists, like if they can't see it on the block. Delilah though doesn't shy away from Gavin's house, she actually is thrilled when he invites her over to visit. But someone(s) does the share the same sentiments that she does for visiting. Delilah better watch her back, front and any other angle she can while she is visiting Gavin at his house.
Seriously you got to read this book, and do it while sitting in the dark with just a candle flickering and no other noises. You'll thank me for that tip. You can't go wrong with reading this book written by the stellar duo that is Christina Lauren.
Do you dare to go inside The House?
