Since she was eight years old, Lilly Rayne Nightingale felt like Fate was trying to wipe away her existence through a series of odd, near fatal incidences. Luckily, her best friend Will was always one step ahead of Fate preventing her from being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Will was her knight in shining armor until he broke her heart after their one and only kiss.
On Lilly's first day of college, she meets Brand Cole. Intrigued by Brand, Lilly must decide whether or not she can give up her adolescent fantasy of being reunited with Will and allow Brand the opportunity to conqueror her heart.
Not only do Will and Brand both love Lilly, they share a dark secret neither wants Lilly to discover. Lilly thinks Fate is after her once again when a new series of attempts on her life start to take place, but she soon learns someone of flesh and blood is trying to kill her this time.

I don't reread books unless I need to remember a previous book before reading the next in a series. I finished the trilogy, so I won't reread.
I loved Tara's interrogation of Bran.
It was a tie between Tara and Malcolm.
Lily's vulnerability and innocence when she tried to entice Will.
This was the best narrated book I've ever listened to.
If you liked Twilight this is better! Especially the writing style and Christa.
I love Brand and Malcolm! Cursed and all of the watcher books are my favorite books of all time (and I have read many (more like a ton) books).
Christa brought the characters voices to life. She brought expression to the words.
Everytime I had to push stop I would get so mad. I have read the book multiple times, but I think hearing it made me get the little nuances that SJ West put in her writing.
Honestly, I love to read the print version of a book before I listen to the audio version of it. I like to have a feel of the characters on my own. It's more personal in a way. After I have read the book, I love listening to the audiobook while I cook, clean, shower, just about anything, really.
I loved when Lilly first met Malcolm. I love when Tara gets sassy. And I love when Brand mans up and realizes that Lilly and him belong together and that they need each other.
My favorite scene was when Lilly learns what Brand is and who Will really is.
Yes it sure is.
I love SJ West's books, all of them. Cursed introduced me into a world of so much love and understanding. It's how I picture my child's life to be as she grows older and experiences these things for herself. It's a beautiful place that I like to get lost in from time to time.
This was my first audio book and I loved it. I am one of those love to feel and smell my books, but the audio version of this one was amazing. I think the print version and the audio version of this book are equal in my eyes. I think the narrator really captured the spirit of the characters.
My favorite character in this version had to of been Tara. In the print format it is Lily. I just loved hearing the narrator's impersonation of Tara and her sassy ways.
This was my first time listening to Christa's performance and I think she did a fine job. You can tell she took her time and got to know the character's before narrating.
These books always make me laugh and cry. The way SJ took these fictional characters and brings them to life is amazing. I have read the print version four times and have the same reaction every time. I laugh when they laugh then cry when it is time to cry lol.
I recommend this as an audio read, or listen because it is one all of her fans ADORE. We love the watchers and I know anyone who ventures into these books will love them too!
The story is fantastic. The characters are amazing!
I definitely loved the story the best. S.J. West tells a vivid story that captures the reader and holds you captive until the very end!
Brand Cole was my favorite character performed by Christa Lewis. She did a great job making all the characters sound different and unique.
I read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down! I've already picked up the ebooks for the 2nd and 3rd book.. I just wish they were available on audiobook as well!
I'm new to S.J. West's books but I'm a fan!!
Love a good romance
Unique story line, not the usual romance
Didn't have a favorite,this book is just building the characters for the series
Brand was my favorite the perfect man every women's dream
This was a $3.95 special and now I can't wait for the others in the series, sweet, romance but not over the top
I really enjoyed this book, cant wait to venture on to the next book. The story line pulled me in instantly and this was one of the books I almost didn't purchase, but very happy I did.
The narrator was disappointing. The story was slow and predictable until the end, but I wonder if it was another narrator maybe it wouldn't have been so slow.
I needed to feel connected to Lilly.
I love Keven T. Collins, but Jill Redfield would be very good.
The story does become interesting at the end so it wasn't a complete loss.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
Lily's had a tough childhood. With a mom who wasn't really much of a mother, and a father she's never known, growing up in a trailer park could have been hell. Fortunately, her best friend, Tara, and Tara's grandmother, are her true family. Without them, she doesn't know what she would have done. The dialogue between these lovely characters is snappy and loving, and I completely enjoyed their world.
One of Lily's best friends growing up is Will, a gorgeous guy that she fell in love with. But when she tried to declare her love, Will dumped her hard and disappeared from her life. Hurt but determined to get on with her life, Lily starts college with Tara, only to discover that Will goes to the same school. Ouch!
Then a new gorgeous guy comes into Lily's life, and he is everything she could ever want in a soul mate, but is he too good to be true? In fact, he isn't what he seems to be, at all.
Angels, good and bad, populate this inventive paranormal, and the writing is top-notch.
Still, I think the best part of this book may be the narration. Christa Lewis kept me listening past the beginning when the h read like a bit of a goodie two shoes, which I typically find dull. Happily, the story picked up, and the pacing was very good, giving a sense of something not quite right without going overboard. When the badness comes along, you've already sensed it, even though you don't know what to expect.
Having read book one, I can't wait to pick up book two.
