Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
I love when ya books can be so heartfelt and not cluttered up with all the foul language and innapropriate sex scenes for their age category. The author really made me feel the emotions of what each character was going through. It drew me in and I can hardly wait to start the next book.
Evie is a 16 yo employee of the IPCA, her job is to subdue all paranormals and bring them back to the facility for neutralizing. But instead of making her older beyond her years the author made her just like any other mall loving, clothes buying, tv series addicted 16 yo out there (except she loves school!). Her best friend is a mermaid who talks through a computer and any curse words come out as "bleep". Evie instantly becomes curious about a guy she captured breaking into the facility & from there it's just pure fun and enjoyment.
I totally recommend this book for all ya and not so ya readers.
And the narration was PERFECT... I think Emily Eiden was the perfect choice for this book.
Off to read book 2.
HAPPY READING (listening)
This is a real emotional tear jerker. A lot of personal growth, simply brilliant! I can't wait to listen to this series all over again. Ronconi does a perfect job and brings so many facets to the performance.
Ok so my friend and I decided to read this book together while waiting for "twice tempted" to come out. I was on the fence about it and had it in my wish list for a while now but since my friend was gonna read it too I thought it would be fun. It was a very good book. No sex in the book and I like that, it was about the 4 letter word LOVE! I'm so glad she chose this book to read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. And what a cliffhanger!!!!! Off to read the next book in the series now!
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This book is a YA listen which is not my usual choice. I thought I would give it a try as the book was recommended by a friend and the ratings it has recieved.
I really enjoyed this book though it was tough to read in parts due to the abuse that Emma suffered at the hands of her Aunt.
I felt that the author dealt with abuse in a fairly realistic way, though thankfully I have never suffered myself I have had friends who did.
I know some people felt that either Emma herself or one of her friends should have said something but it's not that easy.
Her aunt had her believing that she was so worthless & she also loved her cousin's & didn't want them to have to grow up without their parents as she had done.
And her best friend Sara did try to tell but Emma threatened to use info on her to stop her from doing so.
Evan was a great love interest, as he was new to the school he didn't have any experience with Emma's ways over the years. Often we have a girl who claims not to know how beautiful she is or why anyone would have any interest in her (which is very annoying IMO) but in this case because of the mental abuse she receives from her aunt it is believable. I love that he never gives up on her when trying to get to know her no matter how many times she rebuffs him.
On the downside I did find myself skimming on occasion as the author got overly descriptive in parts, it felt a bit like she was trying to fill out the book which I didn't feel was necessary.
I also never really understand why her aunt hated her soooo much & why she reacted in such a brutal way to her without any previous history of being violent, I could have done with a bit of back story on this. Also a bit more on George, did he know what was happening, if so did he not care or did he not want to believe it could happen.
If you find after you have read a few chapters that you are enjoying this book as much as I did, I would recommend you have book 2 Barely Breathing at the ready as this ends on a bitch of a cliffhanger.
Kate Rudd was outstanding in the delivery of the story.
