Editorial Reviews

Nicole Steinhaus
“Nikki has nailed the "twin" relationship beautifully. Being a twin myself, I could fully relate to the twin characters' banter and jealousy toward one another.

Entangled is a funny, romantic, suspenseful story that I simply couldn't put down.”
Lacy Camey
“I couldn't put it down once I started reading. There are also a few great twists I did NOT see coming! Absolutely CAN'T wait for book 2!”
Keren Kiesslinger
“For me, Nikki’s writing style is one that I have fallen in love with. I adored her right from Spellbound and I can tell you now, I am a fan for life. Her words have a way of drawing you in and not letting you go, even after the end of the book.”
Marilyn Almodóvar
“Graylee and Charlene had me in stitches since the beginning of the story, then I just wanted to kill Charlene.

And by the way, Raj is my new YA boyfriend.”

    Book Review: Entangled by Nikki Jefford

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started to read Entangled. I knew that I loved the cover, I knew that I loved the premise, but I also knew that some times indie books can be less than impressive. Let's just say that I need not have worried about this title.


    I loved this book from the first page. The mix of magic, romance, sibling rivalry, teen angst, friendship and loyalty made this a perfect read. I kept turning the pages...wanting to know how this crazy resurrection spell gone wrong would be resolved... Wanting to know how far Charlene would go to to regain 100% of her life... And wanting to know how the strong and independent Graylee would manage to solve her predicament, maintain her morale compass and of course...decide what to do about Raj...


    It's no secret that I have a bit of a thing for witches (I'll take them any day over Vampires, Werewolves, or Zombies) and this book delivered on the witchcraft front. However it was actually the inter-personal relationships in the story that really stole the show. Charlene's relationships with her friends at school, Graylee's budding romance with Raj, a mother's love for her children that can cause her to turn a blind eye to the faults of one and be willing to do anything to save the other...


    And most of all...I loved how Nikki wrote the relationship between the twins Charlene and Graylee. It felt so true to me (and growing up with younger twin sisters gives me a good taste for what that kind of kinship entails. The love and hate..the codependency alongside the desire for independence. How two people can be best friends and worst enemies all wrapped in one. Nikki captured it all perfectly and then put her magical spin on it.


    All of this may not be the main theme of the book. I am not sure if it was the author's intention for the twins' relationship to be the focus of the novel...but for this reader it was. And I can not wait for the second in the Spellbound series so that I can find out where the twins go from here.

    Isn¿t the cover stunning? Beautifully Amazing. In the beginning

    Isn’t the cover stunning? Beautifully Amazing.
    In the beginning of Entangled, you will learn that Char and Gray are completely polar opposites, as being identical twins, they are nothing alike.
    The first of the story was hard to follow, didn’t know much about characters before the story starting unfolding, scenes were jumpy, but I think it would be a good idea to put stars or something when a scene ends, so that way some confusion can be cleared up. However, I think the story line is great! Once I got out of 5th chapter I kept wanting to know what was next, what secrets were coming out, and what was behind the madness. I also loved the fact that there wasn’t any “instant” love sorta thing, sure there was some lusting, but what teens doesn’t do that?

    Char does seem to be selfish, and thinks about herself a lot, but yet Gray is suppose to be in the background as everything gets settled, and figured out, which I guess is understandable.
    Raj, who wouldn’t love this character? He is complicated, but who isn’t? He has to be the one character that is interesting to read about, well him, and Gray as they both build character about the same time.
    It is enjoyable, I would suggest this book to people who have patience with plot and like for the story to build. I hope I can get my hands on the next sequel because I will definitely read it, I really want to know what happens next!

    Disclosure: I received this book for free from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    *I have received a free copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes. It did not influence my opinion whatsoever.*

    First of all, I thought the book was going to be one of those hard core paranormal/fantasy books, but it’s not. So yay! This book really kept me entertained from the start. It opens up with Charlene, Graylee’s twin sister wanting to commit suicide just because her boyfriend was messing with another girl – Stacey. They’re both witches, and in their high school, there are only a few witches and warlocks. That’s what got me confused though, if all of them had powers or not. As the story progresses, our author makes it clear that their talents are not known to humans and only they (as in all of the witches and warlocks at their school) know it.

    It’s basically about Charlene accidentally killing her sister Graylee, then her mom bringing her back to life. The problem is, their mom wasn’t specific to where Graylee’s soul should be so Graylee ends up in her sister’s body. To make it short, she and Charleen shares one body. One day it would be Charlene then the next day it’s Graylee, then it repeats. Now Graylee and her guy friend Raj McKenna (I LOVE HIS NAME) are on a mission to find a body just for Graylee because her selfish sister plans to eliminate her.

    From the beginning, we see Charlene’s stubbornness, and yes, she gets worse until she becomes the story’s antagonist. At first she was jealous of her sister and her mother’s relationship. She claims that their mother is closer to Graylee. But then we get to see the real her, it’s like she just snaps out her true color! Charlene is one of the most popular girls at her school and she’s the I-can-get-any-guy type of girl. She’s a selfish brat and doesn’t even show any emotion when Graylee came back to life. Instead, she jots down a list of things Graylee has to do when she’s in her body, how to act, how to dress herself etc. so people wouldn’t be suspicious since they’re sharing one body. Graylee is the complete opposite of Charlene. She’s compassionate, friendly, and she’s just normal (lol). Even if she has a good side, she knows when to show her mean side. There is sort of a love triangle going on, and I love our hero warlock Raj McKenna!! I love his name! We get the first impression of him as intimidating, silly, and mischievous. The only character I didn’t really like was Graylee and Charlene’s mom. She didn’t really do anything. She wasn’t supervising especially to Charlene.

    Overall it’s a really fun, fast-paced story that will get you hooked on right away. It was easy to relate with the characters, and were amusing. The only quirky thing that I encountered is there was a sentence that used 2nd person point of view o.O. The story’s being told in 3rd person, but I love how there are plenty of dialogues. It’s a trilogy so I will definitely look out for the next two books.

    This is an awesome read!

    Entangled is fun, lively and has great dialogue. I just love the characters and got hooked at Chapter One. It's going to be hard to wait until May for the next one.

    I suspect one of the hardest things an author has to do—or should do—is make a familiar theme fresh, different from the pack, and I admire those who pull it off. I have to give credit to Nikki Jefford because she did indeed come up with a new idea. Maybe I should say it was a new idea to me but I suspect many readers have had the same feeling.

    Stories about twins aren’t unusual, even stories in which the twins dislike each other, but I don’t know of any other stories in which one twin dies and then wakes up in the other’s body. Kat Zhang’s book, What’s Left of Me, features two sisters occupying the same body but it isn’t because one died and came back in the sister’s body. What Ms. Jefford has done is very imaginative and I found myself really engaged with Graylee while she learns how to cope with “living with” the sister she doesn’t much like. I especially enjoyed watching Gray having to re-make herself in Charlene’s image every other day.

    That in itself, the every other day part, is one of Ms. Jefford‘s ideas that sets Entangled apart. Imagine being yourself in manner, dress, friendships, food likes, etc., on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but someone else entirely who just happens to look like you physically on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The trouble that can cause is self-evident but, in the author’s hands, it also becomes a comedy routine and I found myself smiling and chuckling a lot.

    Then again, there are some serious problems here, such as the fact that a teen died for no apparent reason, she has been resurrected by magic, and the local witch coven has issues with the whole situation. Throw in a potential romance with a guy who has his own problems—but thank you so much, Ms. Jefford, for not dropping them into the dreaded insta-love—and you’ve got an entertaining tale.

    The third book in the trilogy is coming out in April and I haven’t read the second book yet. I guess I’ve got some catching up to do before spring.

    Graylee and Charlene are identical twins, which might be fun, but for the fact that Charlene is hateful, spiteful, vengeful twit. And...they're witches. Since Graylee lost her ability to perform even the most basic spells, she has become insecure and withdrawn from the high school social scene. A scene in which Charlene thrives. But when Charlene goes too far, Graylee wakes up dead. Due to a glitch in the spell her mother used to bring her back, Graylee and Charlene must share a body. Every other day, Graylee wakes up in Charlene's body. Every other day, she must pretend to be Charlene. As the clock runs down on Graylee's time on Earth, she must uncover the mysterious circumstances around her death, and find a new body, before she's gone for good.

    I truly did enjoy ENTANGLED. The concept of sharing a body with another person presents the opportunity to tell a really interesting story. Most of us have read stories or watched movies about body switching, but body sharing is a much trickier scenario. And when you have two characters that are polar opposites in morals and personality, even better. This made for some awkward, funny, and mortifying moments for poor Graylee.

    Though I did like the story, I will admit, I sometimes didn't understand Graylee and Charlene. Graylee rolled with the punches, much more than I would expect from someone who literally wakes up with no body of her own. Maybe it was shock, or maybe she's just that chill. But I would have expected a nuclear meltdown from a most characters in that situation. And Charlene...oh boy, that girl had no redeeming qualities. She was just truly awful. She was a user, a manipulator, jealous, cold-hearted and was willing to get rid of anyone who got in her way. I don't know where all the hate came from. I'm wondering if her motivation will be explained later in the series. I hope so.

    I was a bit confused by the guys in ENTANGLED. I honestly didn't know what was going on with Ryan and Nolan. I wasn't sure how to feel about Raj either, for a lot of the story. He's a very misunderstood boy, perhaps. He started off as seeming like a sociopath. Then he developed a major fixation on Graylee, which was explained. I ended up really liking him, thank goodness, but it took me awhile to get there.

    I spent a lot ENTANGLED liking it, but not in love with the story. However, the last few chapters were awesome. The author took the story in a direction I never expected. I was actually very thrilled with the turn of events and it left me very excited to find out what happens in book two, DUPLICITY.

    Favorite Quote:

    "How could she have died and missed out on this? Of all the reasons to be brought back, this was the best. Everyone should experience a kiss like this before parting." (ebook, 85%)

    I find that I have a tendency to expect to be drawn into a book from the first few paragraphs. Sometimes this does not happen but upon a deeper look I find that I become engrossed in the story. This story really gets going when Gray dies.


    I love the magical world Nikki Jefford created. Having seen so many books about magic and paranormal aspects I love when the magical elements feel real. The spells were all really well detailed.


    Raj is an amazing character. By far my favorite.


    The mystery of Gray's death and the journey to get Gray back to her body is a fun one. Any fans of YA Paranormal will love this. The ending was perfect and I can not wait to read #2.

    I first read it as the short story "Spellbound" on the Death by Chocolate anthology and was ENTANGLED! I could not put it down, and with the full length novel, the same thing happened. The story is fresh and original. I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to see what else Nikki comes out with! Especially book #2!!!

    Twin witch sisters? Check. One good, one not-so-good? Check. One a beauty queen, the other the outcast? Check. Insane teenage hormones and drama? Check.

    This story had it all: the family issues, school problems, the bad-boy crush. Not to mention, magic is thrown in just to make it even more dramatic. This is definitely a YA worth reading, if only to swoon over bad boy wizard Raj. The twins Charlene and Graylee are as different from one another as water is from oil: they just don’t get along.

    And when Charlene does the unthinkable, Graylee has to trust bad-boy Raj to help her, without letting the secret out.
    It’s fairly quick-paced, with some odd characters, but who doesn’t love a good weirdo every once in a while? The story draws you in, captivates, and then won’t let you put it down until you are finished. Now, what happens next?

    Like any books with twins one is great and one is a crazy wacko trying to remove the good one. I thought the book flowed decently but the plot was a littoe overdone and at one point I was rolling my eyes on how oblivious everyone seemed to be about the crazy twin.

    I started to read this because I really liked the idea of two sisters trapped in the same body. It's a great storyline, it's easy to read, and you will be entertained throughout the whole book.

    I gave it four stars because . . . It seemed choppy I guess. All of the characters are so very interesting and have their own little stories that you want to know more about but don't get to because of the main story. It left me with unanswered questions and a desire for more, which also made the book a success in that sense. It just seemed like something was missing and you didn't know what. Hopefully the author continues will reveal more details in the next book. : ) And I definitely wished there was a little more romance.

    I think this is a great read though and do not think you will be disappointed. My rating would be more like a 4.5 if that was an option. And five stars means perfection to me which is a pretty high standard and I have only given that to very few books. lol, sorry for that tidbit, I just like to be fair.

    So read on and enjoy!
