Description from Goodreads:
A Resurrection Spell Gone Wrong

Two months after dying, Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body. As a witch, can anyone blame her mother for attempting to bring her daughter back to life? Now Gray is stuck sharing her sister’s body in twenty-four-hour shifts.

Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts, not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell, and worse—her heart. But Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever.

This book ended up being really good!  It's about Graylee Perez who is a witch who has been seriously betrayed by one who should love her, no matter what.  She has died, but has been brought back. Unfortunately she has to share her body with her twin sister.  Who is EVIL.  
 
 I really liked the storyline and the characters in this book.
I was really angry with the horrible things that Gray had to go through and really felt for her that she was so betrayed.  The romance was really sweet and had an awesome build up, which I really appreciate.  And the love interest was pretty awesome! 
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the book and that it had some really great twists and most definitely the evilest sister EVER!  It was definitely one that got my blood boiling at time for the stupidity and cruelty of others and my frustrations with the stuff that Gray had to go through.  

Duplicity (Spellbound #2) by Nikki Jefford
ebook, 280 pages
Published May 20th, 2012 by Nikki Jefford
Source: Purchased

Description from Goodreads:
If Graylee Perez thought sharing a body with her twin sister was bad, dealing with a duplicate of herself is two times worse. Gray the second doesn’t seem to get that Lee’s boyfriend, Raj McKenna, is off limits. Then there’s the problem of Adrian Montez. He expects one of the Grays to be his.

Nearly a year later, the council is onto them for past misdeeds; Lee, along with the rest of the coven, has lost control of her powers; and Gray is being stalked by what looks like the Grim Reaper.

If they work together, they may stand a chance of setting things right and making it out alive.

This book is intended for older teens.

 This was a great sequel to Entangled! Somehow Graylee is in a bit of a pickle in this one and it was definitely interesting watching her try to figure it out. And talk about major twist!  This had stuff that was so completely different from anything I've read about, and I loved that.

Gray is very outspoken and says what's on her mind. This makes her a memorable character for me, which is always good. 

Graylee's boyfriend is really good to her and I really like him, but the personality we got in the first book wasn't so present in this one and I missed it. However, he was still a fantastic character and I loved that he still had his flaws. 

Overall it was an enjoyable read and I'm eager to read the next one!
