Entangled (Spellbound #1) by Nikki Jefford

Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.

Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-four hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.

The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

***Entangled is a young adult paranormal fantasy romance suitable for ages 15 and up.***

My thoughts

I loved this book so much I don't know where to begin.
First off I loved Graylee, right from the first page strong and witty and wont take things lying down.
When Graylee awakens 2 months after dying in her sisters body she is suddenly flung into a life she never expected. I loved watching Graylee bludger through the day as "Charlene" and better yet the self centred  charlene having to put her life right. I really relished the the things Graylee did to screw up albeit unintentionally. Part of me wishes that Graylee really did do some damage to her sisters life not that I am a spite full person but I really disliked charlene

On her search to finding a way out of her predicament she enlists the help of the very hot and mysterious and of course a swoon worthy bad boy Raj whose hard exterior is breeched when he he begins to fall for Graylee.

But time is running out and as Graylee learns more truths about her sister and what she is really capable of she realises that her and Raj must hurry to disentangle her from her sisters body. 

I loved the whole story line of twin witches sharing one body each only been around every other day especially when the twins are so different. Charlene is slutty, bitchy and self centred mean girl Graylee is sweet, smart but tough. The story had me laughing out load in places but in others I found it very touching. I of course loved the whole witchy element too. try as I might I cant make myself invisible or dress in a snap of my fingers.
 I also enjoyed reading the story from Raj's point of view on Graylee's "days off" 

the characters where engaging and believable and the plot flowed well and I cant wait to read the next in the series
