Official summary: "Jenny wants to get her boyfriend, Tom, a special game for his birthday party. However, she can’t help but be fascinated by the boy with the white-blond hair who sells her a strange game as a present. It turns out that the boy, Julian, is the youngest of those from the Shadow Lands, a race of evil beings who live invisibly just beside our own world. Once Jenny opens the game, she is in his land. Julian is determined to seduce her, but he has to work by a set of inflexible rules, only touching Jenny where she has reached for him. In the fantasy house that Julian has created, where everyone at the party must face their greatest fear, Julian himself is Jenny’s worst nightmare ... and maybe her dream lover, as well."(

How I obtained the book: Bought for $4.98 at local used book store. (It's actually a publisher's remainder book instead of a used book)

My commentary:
  • I bought this almost an entire year ago. After I bought it, I read some bad reviews saying this series wasn't very good, so I've put off reading it this long. 
  • After finishing the book, I can see why all the reviews are bad...

Memorable quotes:
  • "The only thing worse than not remembering was remembering." ~ Jenny
  • "A good hostess didn't get hysterical and ruin a party because she had shadows on the brain." ~ Jennifer
