The character's were likeable, and well rounded. And the plot - original and refreshing. Kelsey's was sometimes too much. Some parts of the story were hard to believe, but she made me laugh. It was wonderful to live the adventure through Kelsey's eyes, from caves full of traps, to rivers full of vampire-like monkeys(Kappa's I think), and interesting temples. Dhiren - Ren and his brother Kishan - who are the cursed princes. The romance between Ren and Kelsey was plus.
I look forward to read the next book in the series. Recommended for fans of paranormal romance, filled with adventure, mystery and romance. (less)

One of my favourite books of the year, I'd say.
The story begins with Jacqueline, still nursing a heartbreak, leaving a Halloween party. She's sexually assaulted in the parking lot by none other than a fellow college student, who she knows and never thought he'd ever harm her in any way. Just when things are about to get worse, someone comes to her rescue. That someone is Lucas, a guy in her economics class, who she'd never even seen before. Thing is, Lucas has always seen her, always adored her from a distance.
Oh, Lucas. Where do I begin to describe this guy... He loves to draw, protective, sexy and smart... Behind all that, is a guy who is tortured by his own past and has built a wall, keeping everyone at arms length. That is until Jacqueline comes along. It takes a while for him to open up to her about his past.
Hats off to Ms Webber for writing steamy kissing scenes that left me breathless. :) Lucas and Jacqueline's happy ever after had me smiling and sighing dreamily.
The book deals with rape, breakups, moving on, finding love.. I highly recommend this book.

I am a knitting addict, so me and Talia got along very well in this book. Sometimes I use knitting a therapy. It helps me calm down to rearrange my thoughts in a more lineal fashion. (My thoughts get to be chaotic at times) Talia did the same as a way to calm down.
So about Tight Knit:
I loved the characters. Talia, who suffers from panic attacks, meets Lachlan *swoon* when he drops by the shop to pick his grandmother - the shop where Talia attends knitting sessions with other ladies (mostly elderly) Ooh I loved this about Talia. Lachlan is this tattooed boy with a troubled past. As much as he tries to resist Talia, he is drawn to her.
Talia is shy, doesn't have many friends -two actually - who end up betraying her. The only other person who manages to keep her sane, is her grandmother. Her parents are rarely at home. I'd say she is the quiet strong-type heroine who knows what she wants in life, and despite everything that has been thrown her way, she manages to rise above it all.
Lachlan - where do I begin? Other than his swoon-worthiness, he is trouble. Some things happened in his past that made it hard for him to trust people. And the only person he trusts, is his grandmother. By the end of the story, he pulls through, even after his losses -which are many, poor boy - he rises above everything, with Talia by his side.
I loved the slow build-up of their relationship. Talia wasn't afraid to speak her mind when it came Lachlan. And what a HEA for these two. I highly recommend Tight Knit. :)
