Overview

***This novel is intended for adults only. It includes cursing, descriptive sex, biting sarcasm, and dark themes. HYDE was inspired by Stevenson's novella but is not a retelling, in part because he and this author have very different definitions of 'bad boy'.

Honesty is impossible when you don't know the truth to begin with.

Mitchell Turner is everything women want most in a man--he's charismatic, successful, and undeniably gorgeous. But he's not a man--he's a monster. By venting his rage 24/7, Mitch keeps people out of the danger zone that surrounds him. But, after the most incredible night of his life, he realizes that might not be possible. Except the woman he wakes up with claims she doesn't remember any of it. And that kind of thing can make a guy insecure.

Eden Colfax is kind, loyal, honest to a fault, and cavity-inducing sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn't lie, doesn't curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers' beds...until the day she does. Then the flashbacks start--places she's never been, people she's never met, blood she's never spilled. And the only person with any answers is a man she never wants to see again.

What they don't know is that someone is manipulating them, determined to find out exactly what they're capable of. And when the truth leaves them nothing to hold onto, they will be forced into a partnership neither expected. Or wanted.

But in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can't even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on earth you should be falling for.

    Loved it!!!

    Using the original Hyde as a starting point, Stewart has created a perfect, and perfectly hot, new character. In order to avoid a spoiler, I will offer no details. However, if you enjoy alternative (modern, not historical) type romances, suspense, and smart, well written books, you will love Hyde! It has all of the above and more. It grips you from the first page and doesn't let go! It is a great read from start to finish, and now I am ready for the next book. Hurry, Lauren! :) There is substance to the book as well, with well over 300 pages. Buy it, you won't regret the purchase!!!

    Sweet baby Jesus, this is a good one!! Ok, so what if you woke u

    Sweet baby Jesus, this is a good one!! Ok, so what if you woke up, naked, with a HAWT HUNK OF MALE PIECE YOU DON’T KNOW!!! AND HAVE NO MEMORY OF GETTING THERE!! Giggle well, I’d probably revel in that HAWT male piece, but this is literally how the story begins!! And it GETS BETTER!! So I gotta say, this is a fantastic spin on the Jekyll and Hyde story!

    Eden is a girl with a troubled past and even more troubled future as she is just trying to figure out how her life is spiraling out of control- again. She had this sleep walking issue as a child and it’s come back but way worse. And Mitchell knows his issue but now he’s thinking he’s done the unspeakable! It’s a fantastic little mystery unfolding!

    the writing is fantastic. It’ll suck you right in from the first word and have you guessing like a crazy person trying to win a game show! And there’s this “other” POV and I’m pretty sure you’ll be stunned at their involvements! And you’ll never guess how it all turns out!! But sorry, no spoilers the characters had me wanting to hug them and sometimes slap them and a lot of times stare in lust!! LOL

    I don’t think there’s much to say other than READ THIS BOOK! It’s fascinating and it makes you think if this could happen. Mental illnesses are very similar to some of these “symptoms” and the “medicine”… Yeah you get my point. And I LOVE the self warring! Both characters have such horrible pasts that they literally are their own worst enemies! Sometimes that can be more annoying than anything, but I really liked this situation just trust me, if you’ve ever liked the Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde story, you’ll really like this one, but we’ll keep this one for the more adult audience

    I’m so glad there’s going to be more, a series, so gimme gimme!! 5 PAWS! Loved it!!

    A fresh take on an old classic! 

    Mitch is a sarcastic ass who still manages to be the kind of man that chooses to do the right thing despite the damage his "inner beast" craves to inflict. Eden is completely lost within her own uncontrollable issues, and despite Mitch's buttheadedness, trusts only him to help her, much to his chagrin.

    This book is overflowing with extraordinary characters, steamy romance, and comical dialogue. It explores the conflict of man's most basic instinct: good versus evil, man versus inner beast. 

    Stewart manages a perfect balance between mystery and romance with this thrilling page-turner. It demands your attention from the get-go, and refuses to allow you to walk away without knowing what happens next. The plot unravels as you read, drawing you deeper into the lives of the characters and making you root for them despite the damage they've done.

    Definitely a must-read!

    Gritty fun

    Had a good time reading this twist on a beloved old theme. Lives interwoven in a deception that has all of them wondering who and what they are, with emotions running high, and lots of characters- from the dual personalities, to the ones hiding The Clinic's secret, to the cop trying to figure out who really committed a crime, all of them own take on what's really going on made for some tense moments. All in all, not a bad read and eventually I'll get the next ones.

    Hyde by Lauren Stewart is an urban fantasy that was pleasantly s

    Hyde by Lauren Stewart is an urban fantasy that was pleasantly surprising. It was like a modern day Jekyll and Hyde. This story shows that love can be found amid chaos and confusion. Mitch knew he was a monster. One that had to be caged once a month. Eden did not know what was happening to her. When she wakes up in a strange bed, with a man, she thinks she is sleepwalking…hummm, yeah, again. After Eden wakes up several times in Mitch’s yard, they decide to get some answers.
    They soon find out that Eden is a monster too. Except hers seems to be a nympho. Throw in a jealous personal assistant, and you have the makings of a fantastic book. Once I got started on this book, I could not put it down. I literally wanted to start reading the next book before I was finished just to see how the story played out. Alas, I restrained myself, barely. Now all bets are off and I will be starting the next one as soon as possible. Lauren how could you do that to me? I am now an addict to these books. 5 stars for keeping me interested and guessing throughout the story.

    Enjoyed the book very much, and the next installment, Jekyll, as well.  It gives a different slant on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story.  Interesting plot line, steamy sex, and a few bouts of humor make for a very good read.

    Really enjoyed this story. It grabbed me from the very beginning and held me until the last word. Love the way the author unraveled what was happening, like we were catching glimpses of lies and who and what other characters were and what they were doing.

    3.5/4 stars. New twist on an old classic.

    I really enjoyed this book. Wish it had more of a paranormal element to it though. And it was pretty clear all along who was the villian in the story, there was no element of surprise. Luckily the main characters made it worthwhile.
