      Announcing THE BREAKAWAY by Michelle Davidson Argyle

If you like novels bridging the gap between young adult and adult, you don’t want to miss out on The Breakaway by Michelle Davidson Argyle. Author Zoe Winters calls this contemporary novel, “Lush, literary, and multi-layered.” Author Karen Amanda Hooper says it is, “A total mind-bender that will leave you breathless.”

BOOK DESCRIPTION: When Naomi Jensen is kidnapped, it takes her parents two days to realize she’s missing. Escape isn’t high on her list of priorities when all she has to return to is an abusive boyfriend and parents who never paid much attention to her. For the first time in her life she’s part of a family—even if it is a family of criminals. But she’s still a captive. In a desperate attempt to regain some control in her life, Naomi embarks on a dangerous plan to make one of her kidnappers think she’s falling in love with him. The plan works too well, and when faced with the chance to escape, Naomi isn’t sure she wants to take it.

My review:

This book The Breakaway is a whole new take on how a person can fall in love with her captors.

Naomi was a rich girl and her parents never seemed to be around or care that much about her.(* clench teeth *) That was until she got kidnapped and her life changed. She had no one but she didn’t have anyone before except for Brad, her boyfriend. Her captors believed she witnessed their crime so they took her on that faithful foggy night. SHe put on a strong front but since she never had to fight against anyone, her captors took her as a weakling. Since she knew she was no longer in her home she thought of a plan. Make the youngest of her captors fall in love with her. Then she would gain their trust and Breakaway. Does she plan on actually falling in love? NO…. But it was hard not to, she only spoke to the people who had kidnapped her and she was already making him fall in love with her so she fell hard too.

This amazing story of how a beautiful young girl gets kidnapped by a gang of thieves, how in the time of her capture her parents saw their failure in loving her and how the heart want, what the heart wants.

In the top twenty next to Stolen by Lucy Christopher.

Thank you Michelle Davidson Argyle for having the contest in which I won the ebook to review this book.

Bewitching by Alex Flinn

Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, #1)Bewitching by Alex Flinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just Love this woman (Alex Flinn), her books can make you feel anything. Sad, happy, frustrated,and even angry.

Personally I liked Kendra’s story and how she discovered herself being a witch. And how she “helped” other people with her powers.

I think in the end Kendra helped everyone. If it wasn’t for her, Luis would have never manned up, Doria would have never found the love of her life and wouldn’t had seen “Angels”, and Emma would have never moved on.

There are a few story lines and due to Kendra being an old witch these stories , her story of helping people intertwine with history. All the back stories were brief but delightful and well organized as to not get mixed up on which story is which.

Emma and Lisette’s story is the longest and more detailed. It starts when Emma is thirteen and her rich father or “step father” who loved her very much tells her he has another daughter,who has to live with them now. Emma’s mother doesn’t want this girl, Lisette, to come into their life and ruin everything. Either way Emma doesn’t know what to feel at having this other daughter come into her dads life. She tries to become sister with this girl but soon finds out that this Cinderella story is all twisted.

iN the Forest of the Night (Den of shadows #1) by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

In the Forests of the Night (Den of Shadows, #1)In the Forests of the Night by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I cant believe I’ve never shelved this book it is one of my all time favorites. I just Love Amelia Atwater-Rhodes and her novels.

The story of a vampire, turned at least three hundred years as of the time spoken in the book, who wanders the streets of Massachusetts. Believing her family long dead she keeps to herself as to not know the horror of loosing someone close. She relives her past as she has to confront one of the people who are responsible for her turning.

If I write anything else I’ll give stuff away. I believe more people should read this book because My hero Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is one the best fiction writers ever, And because I’ve read this book at least five times this year only.

Once a Witch (Witch #1) by Carolyn MacCullough

Once a Witch (Witch, #1)Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Carolyn MacCullough is extremely talented trying top mold the image of New York City and Witches in a small town not to far away.I thought taking away her birth-right like that but in the end it made Tamsin a better person and finding out her families secrets a little more hurtful. The only reason I gave it such a good review was because I didn’t like the rushed ending. But I think even the beacon of light had her doubts.

Tamsin: She inspires me, making me realize that even if you feel low you can escape to New York City and have your way. I was sad for her knowing that she was meant for greatness and not have it.

Summary :
Tamsin Greene was born into a family with amazing Talents but when her talents do not arrive on her eighth birthday she feels like an outcast. But after convincing her mom to let her study in the city, her mother reluctantly says yes.

Studying away from she doesn’t feel like a freak, she feels normal. But when she goes back home for Summer Vacation she meets a stranger who asks for help finding something. Even though she has no powers(*sigh*) she tells the stranger that she would do it. What Tamsin doesn’t know that taking on this assignment will help her realize her true potential.

A story where you don’t speak to witches unless its at night at their back door, this startling young woman finds herself being exactly the opposite of normal.

Always A Witch (Witch #2) by Carolyn MacCullough

Always a Witch (Witch, #2)Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

I liked the ending to Tasmsin’s story. going back in time finding out your enemies weakness, exploring the past and seeing how even the people you think are good aren’t always as perfect as you think they are.

if you were able to save your family from something that hasn’t happened yet will you give them your strength or will you buckle form the pressure?

Does love always prevail or is fear enough to rule ?

After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel

After ObsessionAfter Obsession by Carrie Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can’t stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They’re wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it’s neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It’s Alan’s cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.

Synopsis provided from goodreads.com

The combination of Carrie Jones, one of my favorite authors, and Steven E. Wedel in this novel was extremely well done. I also like the uncommon mixture of Maine and Oklahoma referred to in this book, they really suit this story and you can hope readers are waiting for more from these authors individually or together.

Summary:

Aimee and Alan have never met before however they both have dreams of each other in it trying to save something. Something in both their pasts lets them have “dreams” or visions of what to come. Aimee goes through a lot of change and acceptance of herself and Alan is a fierce protector of his family. When Obsession sets in Alan and Aimee have to find a way to stop the next stage Possession. Bad dreams, death, and healing are all part of life and this book.
