Girl Meets Underworld by Jess Watkins

Monday, June 10, 2013
Synopsis: Having lost her mother and brother, Stella stands on the roof of her building, about to jump. She is stopped by a handsome young man, who jumps first. Somehow, he survives and Stella soon discovers that Conner holds a dark secret and more than a passing connection to her own unhappiness.

But Conner isn’t the only man to take an interest in Stella. Will is dangerous. He has mood swings, a crazy older brother and the ability to heal abnormally quickly. Stella knows what Conner is, but what exactly is Will – and why does he appear to know more about Conner than she does?
 
Review: Overall Girl Meets Underworld was a decent read and one that will appeal to fans of paranormal series involving dark and mysterious love interests. Without revealing anything both Connor and Will are a little (a lot) more than human and Stella finds herself interested in both men. The love triangle was well done and both men had an equal chance of “winning” Stella’s heart. There is a clear choice in the end and it is one that readers will be satisfied with, in my opinion, even if they are not that man’s team.
Although I did enjoy many aspects of this story there were also some I did not enjoy as much. I had a hard time feeling a connection to Stella I just never felt much interest in her struggle. Will and Connor were typical paranormal love interests; dark, mysterious, and sexy who were alright but I wish they had a little bit more depth to them. I am hoping that the second book will see some more character development for all three main characters. I also felt that some of this story was largely a “been there, done that” of paranormal stories I really wanted to see something different, although the ending cliffhanger indicates that the next book in the series will contain some new and interesting elements.
