Great Read!!
Failing Test - J.M. Pierce

Every loner teen-age guy dreams of having super-powers, and being a hero. They daydream about that pretty girl who doesn't seem to ever take notice of them. They have one friend who's been there since Kindergarten. They hate their home life, and can't wait to turn 18 so they can get out on their own. They have a car that's an extension of themselves, that they love til the end, even if others spit at it. Sound familiar? Well, that's Test's life in a nutshell. Til now...

What do you do, when you suddenly have super-natural powers that seem pretty limitless? Apparently, in Test's world, you just try to fly under the radar and not cause trouble...after impressing the girl of your dreams, and your best friend, of course.

After some unfortunate accidents occur from his new powers, Test is thrown into a world of running, survival, and searching for answers. With the help of friends, both old and new, he sets out to figure out the secret behind his past, and try to figure out a future that doesn't include being a lab rat, or prison.

With good writing that flows well, this fast paced story keeps you on your toes until the last page, and leaves you wanting more. It is a story I think any guy can relate to, and any girl will enjoy. I'd recommend it to any YA fan.

Incredible End To An Epic Adventure
Taken By Choice (Taken Trilogy #3) - Jessica Frances

Every once in a while, I find a series that completely captures me, heart and soul. This trilogy is one of those, and even then, is in a category all its own. To say it is an incredible story would be an understatement. Uniquely brilliant, this book brings a remarkable end to a fantastic adventure. 

Jessica Frances introduced some incredible characters in Taken by Surprise, and with each book, they each grew deeper and more complex. As sad as I am that this series has ended, this book delivered an epic conclusion to an already epic story, and I adore how Ms. Frances crafted the climax and ending. I cried more from this book than I have in several years, and I am sure this is a trilogy I will read again. 

The Taken Trilogy is certainly one I would recommend, and Taken by Choice is a book that will knock your socks off. It is intense, emotional, deep, and completely, devastatingly amazing. It left me a total wreck, in the best possible way, and I would recommend it to anyone. I look forward to reading future books from this author, and adamantly hope this story is made into a set of films.

This one will stick with me for a while...
The Shadow Soul - Kaitlyn Davis

One word to describe this book: intense! Everything from the battles, to the secrets, to the descriptions of the characters and scenery, are all incredibly intense. This book had me biting my nails, stomach tided in knots, and completely entranced til the last word.

 

The synopsis hints at a story full of adventure, danger, and secrets. That's exactly what this book delivers, along with a good dose of humor, breathtaking descriptions, and wonderful characters.

 

Jinji is a fantastic lead character. Younger than her actions and mental maturity suggest, she faces a supernatural evil most wouldn't be able to believe if it was staring them in the face. She is a fantastic lead female character, and I love the way she holds onto her self respect and courage, through everything Fate tries to prepare her for. She follows her heart, and always does what she feels is right.

 

Rhen is an incredible character as well. I adore the relationship he has with his horse - much like a best friend, they have a connection most people would dream of. He's strong, handsome, brave, and follows his heart no matter what. He takes the ill treatment of his family with honor and dignity, always heeding his status of Prince, while still doing what needs to be done in order to protect his kingdom.

 

A kingdom which, to the denial and disbelief of his family and acquaintances, is in grave danger. While he doesn't know what the danger is exactly, his gut tells him there is something to fear. Together with Jinji, he goes on a wild adventure to discover the danger, challenging an evil he can not yet fathom.

 

The ending left me desperate for the next book, and I can not wait to read it!! The author is a fantastic writer, and she had me completely enthralled throughout the entire book. I would read anything written by her, I would certainly recommend this book to anyone, and I hope the second one is just as good as the first!

 

*I was given an eCopy of this book, from the author via YA Bound Book Tours, to read in exchange for an honest review.

 

See my blog post for this book!! Includes a bunch of teasers, and for the next month, a giveaway for 2 signed paperback copies of the book! See all this and more, here!

Turning Up the Heat - Laura Florand Cute little story about a marriage risking to disintegrate due to too much love and sacrifice of both wife and husband.

Lea is overcome by her husband's fame and his constant work around the world. She's madly in love with him, but is not able anymore to come second.

Daniel, a world renowned chef, is madly in love with his wife and will do anything, work as hard as it takes to make her proud of himself and to give her the best life.

The misunderstanding many marriages have: she feels neglected by his overloead of work, he feels drained but will not stop because he thinks she deserves more from him.

During Lea's flight to a tropical paradise and Daniel's mad rush at her heels, they must confront each other and for the first time talk about their problems. And, when the truth comes out from each of them, the solution is simple: they must stop stiving so much and take time for themselves and their love.
