Made For you- oh no, what a disappointment!

Title: Made For You
Author: Melissa Marr
Published: 16th September 2014
My Rating: 2/5
Recommend: No

Bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely books Melissa Marr’s first contemporary YA novel is a twisted southern gothic tale of obsession, romance, and murder. A killer is obsessed with Eva Tilling. Can she stop him, or will he claim her?

When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she’s confused—who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? But before she can consider the question, she finds that she’s awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva’s power to keep her friends—and themselves—alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.

For the first time, New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr has applied her extraordinary talent to contemporary realism. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive this Gothic, racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation. Melissa’s fans, and every YA reader, will find its wild ride enthralling.

I received this book in an exchange for an honest review

I really wanted to enjoy this book so much, especially since there was a 'Nate' in here. In all of the other books I have read so far, each Nate has been a delight to read. 

I'm not really sure what to say about this book, I really love crime, thriller books. I love the suspense and mystery that the author creates in the book. Like a guessing game, I want to know if I am correct or wrong. Unfortunately, I couldn't make any of those assumptions in this book since I knew who the killer is a few chapters in the book, this book was very predictable and that spoilt the book for me :(. Eva is hunted down by a killer for unknown reasons, nothing ever happens in little Jessup so where did this come from? So many questions..

The killer from the very first page is a pscyho, he is clearly mentally disturbed. It's hard to not mention his name, not wanting to give it away. But I had a very BIG problem with his logic, there were several times in the book I just wanted to slap him. How could he state his killings as 'God sending him messages'? How messed up is that? Honestly, his character is sooooo annoying. And all of these murders for what cause? Just to get Eva

Eva and Nate were the only likable characters in this book. At one point, even Eva is a little bit irritating but that doesn't last very long as the plot becomes the main focus and everything else just blurs out. There isn't much to tell on Eva or Nate apart from Eva is very popular (thanks to her family's name), very pretty and has a cheating boyfriend. Nate is a mystery, he and Eva used to be BFFs and then everything changed. He started hanging out with the wrong crowd, smoking, drinking and constantly partying. Until Eva's accident, Eva and Nate have chemistry, something that has always existed between them (both of them deny their feelings for one another). One thing I admired about Eva was her bravery throughout the whole book, I'm not sure I could have done what she did in that situation. She finally took action after her friends are killed because of her.
