REVIEW AND SIGNED GIVEAWAY: Made For You by Melissa Marr

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 an advanced reader's edition of this book from the author's publicity agency and a finished copy later before the release date from the publisher for free. All opinions are my own.

Wow, Made For You was so different from anything I've ever read before! I finished reading in a 2 hour time period, and couldn't put it down from the start! I was definitely engaged, and the ending had such a plot twist! Made For You is a contemporary-murder/paranormal crime story, and I don't read a lot of books that deal with that kind of focus. 
Another thing that I found very interesting and different was that the book was told in multiple perspectives, and the most interesting one was the murderer himself. I found reading from a murderer's perspective refreshing because usually books similar to Made For You are told in one perspective (the protagonist's) so that way you can see the character progress throughout out the case. I was not exactly fond of the main character Eva, who was very single minded and only seemed to care about her relationship with Nate for a majority of the novel. Nate, Eva's love interest, was a different case, but I also wasn't that fond of him either. He was considered a "man whore" who didn't have feelings, and suddenly all he has is feelings (especially for Eva). 
Eva and Nate's relationship was very "instalovey". One moment Nate is ignoring Eva at each party they see each other at, and the next moment they're talking at the hospital and cuddling like Nate ignoring Eva never happened (even though they did discuss about it). I understand that they were childhood friends/sweethearts, but it's not exactly believable to pick up right where you left off and declare significant love for each other. The character that I did like was Grace (what a coincidence haha). She always had Eva's back, she made me hysterical at times while reading, and I just really liked her because she was one of those kick-butt best friend sidekicks. 
Another character that I surprisingly liked was the murderer or Judge (none of those are his real name so I'm not spoiling) because he had so much depth to him as a character, and the fact that he was so insane and creepy, made me like him even more. Overall, Made For You was a creepy southern-gothic tale that had me on the edge of my seat and captivated me until the very end!

My rating system: (I do use half stars.) 
5 - I do not use the 5 star. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect. 
4 - I loved it! There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. (A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book.) 
3 - I enjoyed the book, but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less.
2 - I finished the book, but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it. 
1 - I could not finish the book, and I probably did not finish it....
