She’s always has had bad luck when choosing boyfriends so she makes a packed with her friends to focus on school. But then a perfect guy, Liam, with an awesome Irish accent shows up. Keeping up her guard, he wiggles his way into her heart and convinces Aria to take a semester abroad in Ireland. He even gives her tickets for her friends to join her as well.

Talk about an emotional roller coaster! What a pleasant surprise to find this slightly different twist in this genre! From the beginning, Ari proves to be fascinating character to watch! We have all thought at one time or another that we just can't seem to find "Mr. Right"-then, one day, there he is. Oh yeah, then you find yourself caught in a struggle to control the world, you have special "powers" and are reminded that you have the best friends a girl could ever have!

Oh my goodness. This book is free over on Amazon at the moment, and it's still too expensive.

Here are my main problems with it:

1. The author doesn't use contractions in her dialogue. If it were once in a while, then fine. Likewise if the author was writing in a particular dialect. She's not, though, and she does it throughout the book. These are regular people - or at least they're supposed to be regular people until the big plot reveals toward the end - and regular people speak in contractions.

I liked this book and would say the rating is 3.50 stars.

I was not crazy about the decisions Aria makes and it makes me have a harder time rooting for her to overcomes.

She talks about making bad relationship choices, but continues do so repeatedly. I did not feel the growth of her personality. She falls so deeply for Liam without knowing very much about him and travels off to Ireland with him and her two friends. Yet she continues to blow off her "stalker" and believes the worst of him.

I thought it was a silly little thing, perfect for a brainless summer read. Sometimes I don't want intricate plots and I can enjoy something more predictable and cheesy. This fit the bill!

The writing isn't bad though: I really liked how scenes were depicted, most of the vocabulary... It's just the plot that's really "well duh" and not surprising at all. And definitely be prepared for some cheesy statements. Especially the main character, my goodness, she's such a Mary Sue! And it doesn't change,

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this one; but, I was drawn into the story and now am looking forward to reading the next in the series. The characters in book one, Unearth, are developing nicely and should continue to grow with each book in the series.

For me this book was a been there done that story with a twist.

Aria Darwin is a teenage girl of to college with a past of dating jerks she creates a pact that allows her and we two friends to not date during the first semester of college. Then she meets a cute guy named Liam and break the pact- she practically dropped at his knees and couldn't stay away! So much for making a pact.... Then she allow herself to travel from America to Ireland with him, even though her stalker-I-can-cause-earthquake

This book was an interesting start to a trilogy that promises to be exciting.

I'm gonna jump right into it and discuss the gorgeous Irish men who fill the pages of this story.

Liam was delectable. A real charmer, and even though I had my suspicions about him, I moved them a side for the time being, because who can resist a sexy foreign accent and those gorgeous grey eyes. Although Liam had the prince charming act down pat, I was extremely intrigued by the 'shadow man', as I like to refer to him,

Head over to my book blog Your Average Bibliophile for more reviews.

Sorry guys, this turned into a bit of a rant.

If you could win awards for the amount of jerk boyfriends you’ve ever had, Aria Darwin would get the gold. Too bad her life is way more complicated than that. Not only is she cursed when it comes to love, she also has weird abilities that would get her thrown into a psychic ward if anybody ever found out about them. When Aria enters her freshman year of college, she makes a pact wit

Six years ago Aria almost drowned and all she remembers is a guy with black hair. She doesn’t know if he was trying to save her or kill her.

Now, six years later she is headed off to college. She just needs to get away and maybe she can make herself do what she did years ago. A secret only she knows, an ability she has yet to perform again. She is also swearing off guys. She calls herself a jerk magnet, but when she meets Liam, who is anything but a jerk she ca

Jenna Bernel is obviously a very imaginative person. Unearth is creative and not repetitive at all in comparison to other fantasy novels about the same subject, Fae. The main character is strong without knowing it and in this way is desirable. The plot is well rounded and doesn't slow down to a boring point. All of this is commendable and makes a great story but I believe it could've been written better.
Now take this with a grain of salt, I can be very picky when it comes to editing and the over

I waffled back and forth between 2 and 3 stars. I'd probably give it a 2.5. It was interesting enough, but there was something lacking. The main character didn't do the traditional ignoring of reason and falling head over heels in love with the guy from minute one. She was cautious and tried to just maintain a friendship. Of course, that didn't last, but at least she tried. *SPOILERS* Even the way it's written gives no real clue that Liam's going to be the bad guy until well into their relations ...more

This may sound odd, but there was only one instance that I felt was too contrived to be 'real'. That said, this story centers on supernatural beings with magic set in modern times.

I thought the characters were interesting, and though for the most part very static, by the end of the story each had changed a bit. I really like the mysterious guardian and hope to see lots more from him. I have to admit, though I thought it was too good to be true, Liam sounded/seemed awesome and despite the author'

I was disappointed by the book. The plot seemed very interesting, but the first 90 pages were mostly boring. The book is too focused on irrelevant things like makeup, going out, making out or at least, the way these actions are presented is very uninteresting. I was really thinking of giving up on reading at a certain point.
Moreover, the presentation of Liam is exaggerated and the adversary group is exaggerated. Like this is some kind of story for 5-years old children with absolute bad and abso

Review also found in my blog

This was an OK read for me. As usual, I like anything that has anything to do with the Fae. However, I found this book needed more action, better character development, and a stronger heroine. The flow of the writing was good but more vivid descriptions would have made the writing more captivating. Too much focus on the romance on this book and less about the heroine's abilities and background. I guess the romance does build up for a reason. However, the romantic part

I can only say awesome. Other than the way it ends with to many questions I loved it. my to be read stack is too big or I would read the next one. oh well, maybe next year.

Pretty compelling and fast-paced, I finished in a day or two. It was a nice way to while away time. It was written in a very self-published kind of way, if that doesn't sound too terrible. Not overly pretty or lyrical, with long sentences that need commas (the best example: "...through the mirror's reflexion his eyes stared into mine giving me a hint of compassion he hid so cleverly."). Many sentences are like this, but after awhile I ignored them for the sake of enjoying the surprisingly fun ri ...more

All Aria wanted was a normal life and a normal relationship but instead she found herself attracted to dead beat guys and had a stalker following everywhere. Not to mention the fact that she could fly! Aria thought everything had changed when Liam suddenly shows up in her life. She thinks he is the best thing that had ever happened to her.

As much as I liked the story it seemed like everything was overly predictable and mushy. All of the relationships were love at first sight; nothing c

This story is awesome!! I read it in one sitting and was completely entranced and enchanted by the complex plot. I was taken in with Ari and her two best friends and the adventure they embark on is one of mystery and danger. Ari is hesitant to get involved with Liam as she has a bad track record with guys. But he is charming and slowly wins her over. I loved the unexpected turn of events and can't wait to read book two. This is a fantastic read!! It does contain the word hell but it is in refere ...more
