Awkward
Until You - Bridie Blake

Ellie is the most normal of all she knows.  College is going fine.  Life may pass her by.  What's next? Kiss a celebrity and don't tell a soul!

 

Jason is in a pinch and needs help.  Ellie is the closest solution.  Can a college student and a movie star convince everyone they are together?

 

Seriously this book has so much to it.  Laughter, heat, coming of age, heart, loyalty, and more.  I found the characters to be very real and seriously charming.  Together, they made a great story.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A TYRANNICAL KINGDOM. AN OPPRESSED PEOPLE. AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST.

 

Tempani of Amarill, a young noblewoman of mixed race, dreams of a Kamara united in race and class. Thrust from the convent into court life, Tempani struggles to find her place in a city she no longer recognizes. Starved commoners fight the crown, women have no rights, and her mother’s people hide in the south to avoid persecution. Banned from using her powers, Tempani feels helpless. But her magic is always there. A gentle hum under her skin, threatening to explode the more she sees people suffering.

Reading Progress: Page 195/324 of Jewel of Kamara

 

Things finally start to get interesting- assassins, conspiracies, treason... too bad it's still kinda humdrum.  Only real problem so far is there's no sense of time or distance given. People travel from one place to another in-between paragraphs.

Reading Progress: Page 143/324 of Jewel of Kamara

 

Love is in the air... or is it? The reality of politics begins to intrude upon the young couple's romance and Tempani is, in fact, revealed to be the Chosen One. Shocking, really. Her destiny comes with a price: stay at the palace or hit the road with her rebel friends who believe in her and learn her destiny. Since the prince gets a little drunk and gives her an ultimatum, guess what she decides?

Reading Progress: Page 109/324 The Jewel of Kamara

 

Rioting in the streets at the thought of the Crown Prince marrying beneath his station, to one of THEM! Too bad the author keeps us so disconnected from it.

 

We finally get an explanation as to why women are forbidden to heal outside of convent walls: a royal betrayal ending with the murder of the king whom many believed was bewitched by the queen. Go figure.  Yet love blooms even as the nation teeters on the brink of rebellion

 

Tempani receives a dream message from her deceased mother about her magic powers and how their Goddess is growing impatient with her lack of progress and to look for a sign.  In other words- she a Chosen One.
