Becoming a vampire guardian was Dawn Fairchild’s ticket out of the Scarlet House. Fresh off a successful mission, life in Angel Creek should have been great. But when her sort-of-maybe-boyfriend, Sebastian, disappears on a quest to help a beautiful vampire from his past, Dawn finds herself amidst a web of danger, lies, and deceit.
Joining forces with Razor, an enigmatic rebel lacking both a verbal and a physical filter, and her band of Misfits—Brooke, Sophie, Hunter, and Seth—Dawn is thrust into a race against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding brutal Born kidnappings and come to terms with the sudden discovery of her own unique powers. With time ticking away and Born vampires’ lives in jeopardy, it quickly becomes evident that someone—or something—desperately wants Dawn and is willing to shed any amount of blood to get her.
Dawn has only one chance to face her demons and overcome all obstacles standing in her way as she embarks on the biggest mission of her life—one that threatens a deadly outcome for all involved.
Let me start off by saying that I love this cover .Ada Adams is a new author to me and I have to say that I really loved the first and second book.
The story involves vampires and humans coexisting together.In this story the vampires are known to the humans some in favor of there existence and other who are not.
This story picks up where that last one left off. Omg ! What a page turner this one was.So much going on so many changes the story kept going in a new direction which kept always changing.This time the Born (meaning born a vampire not made a vampire ) like Dawn are being Captured and Drained !
This time around this story I felt anyway had more that one plot going even though the plots were connected there were two different agenda's for the parties involved.We get to see more of Razor Sebastian's brother in this story who becomes more involved with the other character's.
My favorite character this time around is Razor.I just loved Razor's character I found him to be a lot of fun and a out going character.He was constantly teasing Dawn throughout this story which was a good thing because he was trying to get her to loosen up and not be so serious all the time and constantly worrying about everything and everybody.She was missing out on life by taking everything so seriously.He was trying to show her how to stop and enjoy life of only for a tiny bit.Which I think he did a very great job at even with all the danger that surrounded them all.Razor also is working on strengthening his relationship with his brother after being separated for so many years.
Sebastian actually made his brother (Razor) a vampire but, not intentionally . When Sebastian was newly turned he turned to his brother for help and with Razor not believing his bothers rantings he ended up draining him dry and leaving him for dead.
Sebastian thought he had killed his brother until he meets his brother centuries later.Razor has forgiven his brother thinking he should have listened more him being a Doctor he should have been a little more opened minded.Razor carries a lot of guilt for thinking he is the one who let his own brother down not the other way around.They both need to forgive themselves. Razor works really hard at making his brother forgive himself as he holds no remorse for what was done to him.Razor grows closer to both Dawn and his brother but also with all the other misfits known as the Guardians.
We saw the characters grow even more this time around.Even though they may not truly like one another they all have this unshakeable bond between them all.Not only that they would give there lives for Dawn but for one another.The little family of Guardians are making a name for themselves slowly.A formidable foe...
You will love this read its just filled with fun characters so many twists and turns and a outcome that you will never see coming. And OMG what a cliffhanger at the very end ! So much is happening that you will be glued to the pages. So many secrets coming to light with the pieces all starting to falling into place.All the characters have truly grown but, I think Dawn grew the most of all with the help of others.The plot thickens!
Another amazing read just loved it.Looking forward to the next book in the series.A great Young Adult Paranormal Romance read.Recommended to all ! (less)
Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.
When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.
Let me start off by saying that I love this cover to this debut novel.Ada Adams is a new author to me and I have to say that I really loved the first and second book.
The story involves vampires and humans coexisting together.In this story the vampires are known to the humans some in favor of there existence and other who are not.
All and all this was great story.Dawn who is a young vampire warrior and also the daughter of the President of all vampires is sent on a mission to trained 4 young teenage vampires to become the new protectors of the town they live in.For Dawn she been sheltered and protected all her life.Dawn has now been given a mission and for the first time able to spread her wings.
I loved the idea of Dawn training a bunch of misfits to be great warriors. The characters had all different personalities total opposites of each other making them a great cast of characters.Some where moody and dark others quiet and shy and another nerdy.You had to love the reaction to Dawn coming in contact with each and everyone of her new recruits .Remember she has been training with hardened warrior her whole life and now she takes one look at this sad group thinking her mission is hopeless from the very beginning.Her reaction to meeting each and everyone was priceless.
For me I have to have a favorite character but, this time it was really hard to choose.But, in the end I am choosing Sebastian.Razor his brother would be my second choice.Sebastian was a young vampire with a tragic past making him a bit dark and moody but, on the other hand very protective and loving individual at the same time.He had many sides to him that made him so interesting to read about.Sebastian a tall dark and handsome vampire that is surrounded with mystery who wouldn't fall head over heels for him ?
I just loved the story it had so much going for it.Love and romance budding for several couple intrigue and danger.The forging of 6 new friendships.I felt by the end of the story that they formed a loving family of there own.I enjoyed seeing each and every character grow into there own making them feel cherished and special and prideful and even more confident individuals.
The story had tons of intrigue going on where we learn about each and everyone's past some even connecting with the future and the danger that surrounds them all now.For some many secrets were uncovered in Dawn's past leaving the girl in limbo and truly hurt.I found her character at first to be a little annoying but, when her past secrets are starting to reveal themselves you understand her character much more and understand why she acts they way she does but, little by little she opens up and unwinds and bit making her more of a likeable/loveable character.
I loved it and recommend it to all whether young are old.This is a Young Adult Fantasy Romance.New Debut novel for Ada Adams and I have to say that she did a very good job for her first novel.So looking forward to the rest of the series.We are giving this newest story 5 stars!(less)

Let me start of by saying that is one of my favorite authors her books are always steamy and make me laugh.Just love her books!
I have to say that I really enjoyed this story.I was constantly smiling throughout the entire story.There were so many parts that made we laugh.This was a slow budding romance that started out with just a pretend boyfriend developing into a much deeper growing relationship.
I normally only have one favorite character I rave about but, I have to rave about two this time around. Cella and Crush.Cella was just way to comical with a really big personality not only did she work for a government agency doing a very dangerous job but, was a single mother playing on a hockey team with a bunch of other shape-shifters both men and women.She was always upbeat and funny.Her friendships were very interesting and the way she communicated and dealt with her friends both male and female. She did not have your typical girlfriend relationship.And you will understand after reading this story. LOL Just loved her.Crush was a bear after my own heart.He was not what you would expect for a shifter polar bear.He had the looks and a dangerous aura that surrounded him and a scowl that would scare anyone off but, he was really nothing but a giant teddy bear (don't tell him I said that ) lol.He was uptight and reserved and down right honest with those he dealt with.He needed someone like Cella to loosen him up and so she did with her taunting antics and just that big personality she had.He was just a really nice guy all around you could not help but fall for him.
All and all this was amazing read for me.Loved the characters all of them .The all played a part in making this story a really fun read.I have been reading this series so I love that most of the characters in these stories grace the pages of each and everyone of the current novels in the series.The character's are all so different and no all of them get along making them done right interesting and funny and some dangerous.The story had all the things I love romance fun characters and a bit of mystery.I do have to say that Cella really made this book really entertaining for me. This story was more of a slow budding romance for this couple neither looking for anything to come about from the whole pretend boyfriend thing.But, Cella was the type of individual who you could not keep from getting under your skin or letting into your heart...
This one goes into the keeper pile to be read and a later date again when I am depressed and need a fun read and some hardy laughs.A recommend read to all.Be sure to check out the other books in this series as the all have been really good reads and I have enjoyed them all !(less)
As dragon shifters, Remy and Philippe had spent their lives searching for their perfect mate, and in Lilly Montague, they found her. But enemies from their past are threatening their happiness. Dragon law dictates that they must meet the issued challenge and face their enemies in battle. But when Lilly sees them in Dragon form, will she be able to accept them?
Excerpt One----VERY ADULT CONTENT!!!!
Lilly Montague smiled, her full lips curving upward as she savored the glide of her lover’s hand over her thigh. It had been only six months earlier that she had first met Philippe, in the very same exclusive club where they now indulged their desires. Sprawled atop him, her breasts crushed tightly against his chest and the hard ridge of his massive arousal pressed intimately into the juncture of her thighs, she savored the sensation. Still, there was something missing, or someone, more particularly. She was trying not to think about it, but her mind refused to cooperate. Lilly had two lovers in fact, two beautiful men who saw to her every whim and desire, as well as to one another’s. Rising on her elbows, she stared into Philippe’s handsome face, noting the honey-colored scruff that shadowed his firm jaw, highlighting the supple curve of his lips.
When he met her gaze, he sighed just a bit. “Stop thinking about it.”
Lilly’s sigh matched his. “I know he’s only been gone for a few days, but it feels like an eternity.”
Philippe’s hand moved farther up her thigh, disappearing beneath the hem of her skirt, and encountered nothing but bare skin. “You need a distraction, cher.”
Lilly shivered as his hand coasted over her behind, his fingertips lightly dipping into the cleft. “Don’t tell me,” she said. “Show me.”
It was only seconds later that she felt his lips on hers, claiming, ravaging her mouth in a hot, almost brutal kiss. His left hand fisted into her hair, using the dark locks to tug her head back. The other hand continued the sensual torment, sliding over the curve of her behind, between her parted thighs, his thumb circling the tight rosette while his fingers delved between dew-slicked folds. She let out a soft moan, unable to hold it back. There were other people in the club. The bartender was stocking the coolers with beer and other refreshments, and the new waitresses were in the storage room, doing inventory to make certain that all members’ toy chests were accounted for. Lilly thought of the first time she’d been in the storage room, seeing the various and sundry items that the club’s members used for their pleasure. Remy had been with her, his hot gaze like a physical caress on her body. She hadn’t known then who she wanted more, Remy or Philippe. It had never dawned on her to imagine that she would have them both.
“So wet, so hot for me,” he murmured, his teeth scraping over the sensitive skin of her throat. It wasn’t the first time he’d done that, and she knew it would leave a mark. But the delicious shivers arcing through her body made it more than worthwhile.
Remy stepped into the dimly lit interior of Dragon’s Lair, his own private domain. At the end of the hallway, entering the main room, he paused and took in the scene before him. On the far side of the room, in the private alcove reserved for the three of them, Lilly and Philippe were ravishing one another. The hot kisses, the sight of Philippe’s skilled hand pumping into the sweetness of Lilly’s cunt, had him hard instantly. He didn’t have to make a sound. Philippe looked at him over Lilly’s shoulder, and Remy felt the zing of connection between them. There was a fantasy building in his mind, a tableaux that he allowed to play out for Philippe’s benefit. It had been nearly a week since he’d had them, since he’d tasted either one of them. Other things would wait, but his passion would not.
Moving toward them silently, he began to remove his tie and then his jacket. By the time he reached the alcove, his shirt was unbuttoned and his cock was raging. Philippe was urging Lilly on, whispering hot, erotic things to her that did not leave any of them unaffected. Her top went first, some gauzy confection that only highlighted her feminine appeal. It landed in a dainty heap on the floor, followed by her skirt. Clad only in high heels and a black lace bra, she straddled Philippe’s hips, rocking against the massive erection he sported for her. Moving behind her, Remy slid his hands over her shoulders, down to the soft globes of her breasts. He closed his fingers over her nipples, pinching them with just the amount of force she liked. She shuddered and leaned back against him.
“I’m so glad you’re home,” she said on a dreamy sigh.
He smiled as he claimed her mouth, tasting Philippe’s kiss on her lips. “I’m glad to be home... I’ve missed you. Both of you.”
This was a short story that turned out to be and enjoyable read.
The characters were likeable and and very intriguing.Who wouldn't be interested in two very hot shifter Dragons right ?
The story is about two Dragon shifters that share one mate.This story was about a loving relationship were two men share the love of one women..The threesome had a loving and caring relationship that was not just about sex you could really see that they all cared about one another and the shifter mates were willing to lay down there life for the women they love.
An intriguing story when the men and there mate act upon there deepest fantasies bringing enjoyment to one another.The sex scenes were explicitly hot and engaging!These Dragon shifters are magical making them even more enticing to read about and you wanting to learn all you can about these unique mythical creatures.
We would recommend reading this short story if you like Erotica. We are giving it 4 stars.(less)
Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”
Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her. Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…
As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…
Rioden bowed his head my way and told us to hurry up as he stepped out of the hotel room. Xander came up from behind me and smiled his beautiful smile of encouragement at me.
“Um, yeah, I think so. I mean, that’s a lot of information to put on a girl, you know?” I teased half heartedly.
He reached his hand up to my face and touched my cheek briefly, before pushing a strand of hair out of my eyes and gently tucking it behind my ear.
“You're not a girl - you're a Princess, remember? You are so much stronger than you know. You’ll see.”
Stepping back, he opened the door for me and his eyes twinkled as he added, “Come on Princess, let’s go eat.”
I started to walk by him stoically, like he hadn't said anything, and then my fist darted out and knocked him in the gut as I continued on out the door. Grasping his stomach as he shut the door behind me he groaned, “See? I said you were stronger than you knew!”
Wow ! What a fantastic read just loved it could not put the book down what a page turner this story was.Michelle G Miller is a new author for me and I have to say she didn't disappoint.I love it when I find new authors to read and fall absolutely in love with there works and writing.If Michelle continues to write stories like this she will be among my top favorite authors.
What a great cast of character's I love them all found them all to be loving caring respectful and a times a lot of fun to read about they all were so engaging that they kept you turning the pages to see just what would happen next.
You always have to have one favorite character and Xander would have to be mine.That hot Guardian bordered on being a saint ! That hottie makes a girls blood boil.I was In love with him from the very first pages what a considerate loving and caring individual and also one heck of a protector.Wish he were mine...LOL
Xander was chosen to be Skye's Guardian and has been watching over her for many years but, one fateful night he finally broke a rule and showed himself to her creating a whole slew of new problems for them both.Skye is a bit of a mess growing up in a group homes all her life and feeling so alone has driven her to partying to much and to make one bad decision after another until she meets Xander when her life is about to change . Whether its for the better is anyone's guess....
Xander has been chosen to be a Guardian to Skye's for a purpose as she really is a princess from another dimension and now in line to be Queen of her own realm.The kicker is she knows nothing of this and thinks everyone around her is crazy until a batch of demons try to dispense with her.Now she is starting to believe little by little.With no reconciliation of her past life she needs to put her trust in Xander to learn of her past and carve out a future whatever that may be.
Xander and Skye have a past although she does not remember him she has a strong bond and feels safe only when he is around.The two have a great relationship once Skye learns to trust and open up she starts to remember what they meant to each other and they start to rebuild there connection .Xander is in love even knowing it is forbidden he can't seem to not act on his feeling around Skye and Skye feels the same way towards him.So why not indulge there selves .....
Your heart breaks for this couple knowing that there relationship is doomed from the very beginning and even if it were not because of the forbidden laws those enemies among them will do everything to become between them.I am rooting for them they make a beautiful couple both loving loyal and caring and just perfect for one another.
The story that surrounds the lovers is filled will tons of danger that is lurking at every corner. Keeping you on the seat of your pants just to see what happens next.The story was filled will love and romance and intrigue all the things that I love when reading a story.It was amazing to see Skye grow and become that strong confident person she always wanted to be. She blossomed right before our eyes.
Wow ! What a ending ! Can you say cliffhanger ? OMG ! I did not want the story to end.I am anxiously awaiting the next sequel.Can you say ?Sitting on pins and needle is more like it.A wonderful and cleverly written story and a recommend read to all whether young or old it needs to be in your to read pile.
You know you have written a fantastic story when the reader finishes the story and then goes back to re-read there favorite parts not wanting to let go quite yet. Into the keeper pile and will be a must re-read in the near future. We are giving this story a 5 star read !(less)

First off let me say this is a new author for me and this is the first time reading her stories and I have to say that this was a fantastic read.
All the characters in this story were engaging and easy to relate to.All the characters had a story of the own and bits of there past blended with Aurora Megalos future.

The sacrifices we make have the power to shift the very fabric of who we are, and ultimately who we are meant to be…

Once the details of Finn’s own startling destiny are revealed, the dangerous secrets he’s been hiding will threaten the very love Stasia believed to be indestructible. As time begins to run out, she will be forced to choose between the one she loves and the destiny she cannot escape.
Wow ! Another keeper for sure. This continuing story just picked up where the last story left off.I never realized I was reading a new book! How fantastic is that.Another page turner that kept me up all night again but, I am not complaining this book was well worth it !
The danger became even more real for Stasia strangers are in town are now making her life a living hell.What to do ?After learning of her true destiny that she is the intended Leader of the Tydes. She must prepare herself for a quest to gain entrance to the underworld where she will gain her immortality.It is a dangerous quest she needs to learn to control all the powers she been gifted with to use in the up and coming fight. With the help of Finn and her friends she will learn all that she is capable of.Stasia is struggling with all of this its a lot to take on so soon. All these powers are coming so fast she has not been able to control them or learn even to use them to her advantage.She having reveries that she is not understanding.She is able to travel to the past and to the future and present just by dreaming.Learning some very discerning stuff as to what is to become or her...
Love all of character's.They were very brave, funny and characters for sure. We are introduced to even more characters as Stasia roommates are also learning to craft there own powers along with engaging in the dating scene themselves.
Got to say that Carmen was my favorite character this time around. That girl had such a demanding presence about her. She was one tough cookie.She made me laugh more then once with her altercations with Ricker.The couple had a love hate relationship.Carmen and Ricker had a past making there situation even more complicated. But, all the while all the tense fighting and teasing was going on you could tell Ricker truly cared about Carmen. If you ask me he really wore is heart on his sleeve.
Then we have Liam and Willow taking there stab at romance or trying to.There developing romance was slow they seemed to be testing the waters both of them.Well maybe more so Liam he was so painfully shy and Willow a little more bolder I think well, maybe in her mind.But, I really think they will make a really cute couple.One thing that this author did is create all her male love interests to carry on as gentlemen.I just love that.
I have to say that I just loved following Anastasia budding romance with Finn.He just kept getting and better in my eyes.Both are now taking there relationship toward the next level. Finn is an important part of Stasia future as well as her past he knows so much about her that even Stasia doesn't know.
I have to say that I kept getting more and more excited as Stasia learned one ability after another. She was so surprised at herself at the abilities she had mastered and learned to control and command. In a sense they really scared her a bit. She grew even more powerful than even her mother ever was and she held extreme power so you can only imagine the things Stasia was capable of a even surprising Finn.
Not only does Stasia have a destiny to follow so does Finn.He will need to fight is own brother to the death to take his next chosen place as the leader of there clan.Its a fight to the death for both. I can only imagine how that weighed on Finns thoughts and what Finn must have been going through not only worrying about his own path but Stasia's. I had one pet peeve or didn't like about Finn at times it felt as he kept a lot of information to himself about his own clan and destiny and Stasia's at times it seemed like he was trying to hide things.But, then on the other hand maybe he was trying to protect Stasia by not telling.What pressure he must have be under to know what he had to accomplish himself and still protect his love at the same time.
Even more intrigue is happening and even more twists and turns and now even a few road blocks.At this point Stasia and Finns relationship is be put to the test and Anastasia love is being tested.This couple will have to have faith in each other for there love to survive.Bombshells are dropped and are having you wonder if there relationship was nothing but a joke.
I have to say that Stasia's roommates all stepped up to the plate a rallied with Stasia supporting her in her quest to come.Helping anyway they can.You will be amazed to learn the sacrifices her pals were willing to make.They impressed me greatly.
Such a moving story with so many ups and downs so much intrigue and how much we were able to learn about all the characters pasts and what was expected of them for the future.Amazing relationships built on love and friendship being put to the test.
This is a book to be read again and again and will remain in my keeper pile .A recommended read to all ages. A fascinating story not to be missed.(less)

This is a brand new author with a new series .This is also a brand new author for me and she just wowed me thinking Omg this is such a terrific read.This book was totally amazing.I was just blown away by how good it really was.By far this is the best young adult series I have read this year.I would also like to give props to the author for creating three truly fascinating and maddening addictive stories Forsaken,Awaken and Chosen.What impressed me even more is that Kristen Day is a self published author who brought forth three amazing winners right off the bat!
This story had such a truly amazing cast of characters.I liked them all, Well with a few exceptions I wanted to see those ones get what was there due !The roommates of Stasia's were truly a fascinating group of girls.They brought many laughs and quite a few chuckles to the pages as I was reading.One of the things that impressed me was that the girls were always snacking a eating especially desserts like cup cakes.With so many body conscious teens it was nice to see that this group of girls didn't have any weight issues they were all comfortable in there own skins.Well, they had to be one of Stasia's roommates liked to cook and bake and she did a lot of both.No dorm mates staving here ! LOL
My favorite character was Finn Morrison.I fell in love with is character after reading just a few pages.That was one Hottie !Finn was a amazing guy and even more of an amazing boyfriend to Stasia he was a kind and caring and always put Stasia first and was there for her when ever she needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to talk to.Finn definitely had a helping hand in shaping and guiding Stasia into the women she would become one day soon.Finn was tall dark and dangerously handsome a boy from the underworld the Demon world.The aura always surrounding Finn was dark but, he was just the nicest guy to his friends but, deadly foe to his enemies and those of Stasia's.Wish I had a guy like that sigh....
Stasia would have to be my second favorite.What a truly amazing girl to deal with the abandonment of her parents .Always knowing you were different and trying to be normal just to fit in.Always working at it making it an exhausting process.She was adopted into a rich family who never really tried to get to know the real Stasia just thinking she was crazy.But, one shrink determined what was wrong with her and placed her in a school for gifted children like herself learning that she was different not insane but, born from a Goddess.All her oddness visions blackouts all made sense finally she was coming into the powers that her parents had passed on to her not knowing who or where she came from.Can you imagine learning your mother was a mystical creature all and mighty powerful Goddess ?
Love the ease that Stasia had with her roommates it was refreshing no fighting or petty jealousies between the roommates they all got along were funny engaging and had the true making of a long and lasting friendships for all of them.Each would give there life for one another without even giving it a second thought.All of Stasia friends had there own mystical powers and all were born of the Tyde clan giving them a different talent to heal, command water, command the sand.None of them should ever be underestimate they were all powerful in there own right.The slow and budding romance between Finn and Stasia was truly endearing.Finn being a modern man but, being old fashion enough to actually court his girl like the old days. So romantic...
This novel was totally engrossing and quite the page turner, Read this book in one sitting by staying up all night without ever going to bed just to finish it.It was truly a magical read just couldn't put the book down.The story had so much excitement so many twists and turns .You learn someone or somebody's were plotting to kill you without having a clue why ?
The story was about learning about your one true self. Where you came from.Who you are destined to be.Forging lasting friendships that would last ones lifetime.Finally finding a place that you belonged and felt that you fit somewhere for the first time ever. Last but not least being in a relationship with the one who could truly own your heart helping your heal from past hurts.All of the gals are so jealous they all want a boyfriend like Finn.Including me ! LOL

Even if you don't read young adult books this book and the others in its series are a must in your To Read Pile that keeps growing for all of us.I cannot say enough good things about this book it was so much fun and such and engaging read.It just blew me away how much I enjoyed it! .Kristen definitely has a new fan in me !
