My Cover Thoughts: The artist for this cover really kicked BUTT! There is this beautiful girl standing over earth looking into the horizon. You get this feeling like she is talking the sun and asking why it is so hot here on earth. The sun is shining on her face and you get a glimpse into what she is thinking.
My Thoughts/Review: Okay let me first start out by saying I really did not think I was going to like this book. I read the blurb and thought okay Global warming crisis in a book? WTH! But boy oh boy does P.J. surprise you with a story of a lifetime! I so loved it from the moment I opened the first page to the very end. The neatest part of the book was that it wrapped Greek mythology with a dystopian twist! This book is caliente and for those of you who don’t know that word it is hot…hot…hot…
The ultimate question you have to ask yourself is what would you do for love? How far would you go, to the ends of the earth? Would battle someone or something to get that love back?
Okay so here goes the review, Piper is a girl who is sheltered by her mom. She lives a life of loneliness except for her best friend Chloe. Then on her eighteenth birthday things change for Piper. She gets rebellious and gets a tattoo with Chloe of a Greek word standing for Sacrifice, θυσία (thysía). Soon after she gets her tattoo with Chloe she meets Shayne which she knows she has never seen before but she feels like she has known him her whole life. She is instantly attracted to him and wants to kiss him. Then comes along Mr bad boy Reese who is HOT times 100 and bad to the bones. Reese asks her out on a date and she says yes. She is afraid because her mother told her she can not date so she will have to sneak out and Reese says he will help her do that. There’s only one problem Chloe is in love with Reese and wants him all to herself. What is a girl to do?
This is a story of love and loss and finding your true self. It’s about sacrafices friends make for one another and how true love can stand the test of time. You will not be disappointed after reading this book. In fact it left me wanting more and I just have to find out what happens between Piper and Shayne and also Piper and Reese. Happy Reading because I know I did. Memorable Quotes: Page 39 Reese and Piper are on a date. “You’re smiling.” Reese reaches across the table and takes my hand. I’ve set my wine glass down, freshly filled and only a sip taken. He’s right. I am smiling. “Is that okay?” Reese flashes his teeth, and in his face, I see Shayne. I try to bring Shayne into my thoughts,but he won’t come. He’s slipped out of my mind; there’s not room for both of them, and right now, I’m totally occupied with the overpowering presence of Reese. “You are totally sexy when you smile.” I know my face must be bright red, but his comment only makes me smile more. “You’re not so bad yourself.” And it’s true. Reese has been perfect. Funny. Gorgeous. Reckless. “I love you.” His words stop my breath. “I swear I’m in love with you.” My eyes manage to find his and lock onto them. I’m sure he’s joking. But his eyes aren’t laughing. The blue’s darkened, and the emotion behind them makes me hold my breath until I realize I’ve stopped breathing.

My Thoughts/Review: This book is a must read. My first thought was OMG could this really happen to people? Could people fall in love the first minute they meet? The answer is a resounding yes! Maggie is an ordinary girl graduating from high school and wanting nothing more than to be done with school and work all summer at the diner before deciding what she is going to do. Then something amazing happens to her and she is not so sure what she is going to do. She has a lot of thinking to do.
With this new decision on her mind she finds that some choices are hard to make but she has to learn to follow her heart. Falling in love is scary but once it is done there is no looking back. What is worse is when you are stuck in a love triangle and you don’t want anyone to get hurt feelings but you already know that at least two people are going to get hurt.
I loved this book right from the start! The opening lines are: I had waited for this day. For this one thing to complete me. To wrap up seventeen and a three quarter years of my life and set a pretty bow on it in the form of a graduation cap. I had waited for this one sheet of paper to tell me I had done something right.
I sat in my assigned seat, along with my classmates, in alphabetical order in front of the gym. The ones up front were in order by achievements, their faces lit with the relief of scholarships and graduation parties with gifts and family and friends. And getting out of this town.
I was numb. I had waited for this moment but now, didn‟t feel good inside. Didn‟t feel complete. Didn‟t feel achieved. I felt like I‟d slid by and barely made it. Which is exactly what I‟d done. I despised school. I was in the early release program for students who work after school, so we got out at 1:00 instead of 3:00 like everyone else. I was barely here and when I was I didn‟t want to be.
This story has so many toss and turns and lots of adventures, you will love it! What is one to do when you fall in love with a stranger? Should you listen to everyone else or should you just go for it. Maggie has made her decision and she is going through with her plan of loving and trusting someone when she could not do that a year ago. She has her best friend Becca and her ex-boyfriend Chad and her other best friend Kyle. They have spent all there lives together and had decided they were going to go to the same college and then things changed. Maggie had someone close to her walk right out of her life and senior year went from being fun to being unnoticed by everyone because she just wanted to do her senior year and get out of town far away from all the things that had happened over the year.
Then Maggie meets the love of her life and she finds out that being in love is complicated band that this particular relationship is going to be a tough one. But Maggie holds true to herself and her love and she makes things doable. What is in store for Maggie? Can she handle it? Does love survive battles? Hehehehe read on to find out!
Shelly Crane is the next Rachelle Mead! She has weaved a love story with loss and challenges that will pull at your heart and having you rooting for the couple. This is a must summer read. You will not be disappointed!
Memorable Quotes: “Hold on.” I walked up to his cousin a few feet away. I looked up into his face, at least half a foot higher than mine, probably more. “I‟m really glad I was there.”
“Me too. Thank you. You ever need anything- a new pair of rollerblades, a Popsicle, a kidney- it‟s yours.”
I laughed and tucked my hair behind me ear as he chuckled too and shuffled his feet.
“Ok. I‟m Maggie by the way.”
I stuck my hand out towards him and smiled. “Maggie,” he repeated and I bit my lip at the sound of my name on his lips. “Caleb.” He took my hand and I felt an instant jolt go through my body that made me gasp.
Not like a girly wow he‟s touching me jolt. I mean an actual jolt. Like it felt as if fire was racing through my veins and I was standing in water with a blow dryer. My breaths ceased to exist and my blood felt cold in my hot skin. My eyes fluttered automatically at the pleasure pain of it. I saw images, flashes of things. Me on a porch. Tan arms going around me from behind and a brown haired head sitting atop mine then leaning down, kissing my neck. Then that image vanished and a new one appeared. (less)
