But you already sense there is more to it than that; something not quite right. The main character, Brook, and his father, Latham (or isit?), live on this island and work. They have guests, Waywards they call them. Selected people from other lands, other nations, nations Brook himself has never known, he's never left the island. These Waywards have purpose, "and what purpose is that?" I hear ya say! Well you'll have to read it and see heehee. In other news, this book differently provides you with intrigue and hunger for more. Especially with Brook and his Migraines, I found I just had to find out what these Migraines were all about, not just the purpose of this Island and it's Waywards. Why does he have Migrains? Why does he have this illusions? Are they Illusions? Bwahahahahahahahahahaha :P x x x(less)

The path in which you think you're going in turns into a vein and you go in another direction all together and I love that when reading a book, love that mystery of not knowing where the writer will take you next. I love the power executed through Angel (the main character) she's innocent yet perfectly growing right before you, through her ever changing state. Bravo Katie, keep going, I love the story and can't wait for more x (less)

From start to finish I was drawn into the world that is Jewelia. In so many ways I believe her character will relate to every woman because we've all been this vulnerable at one stage of our lives and the passion this girl has is every bit a reality. I was right there with her tears, her joys, her systumatic convoltions of Indigo (AKA:Jimmy), her struggles, the emotions I swear I'm exhausted!!! It is an unforgettable read and one I will carry with me in my heart and love for goodreads. Excellent!(less)

As a child I went to Dartmoor allot, it's awesome how Georgina has captured this and brought it so much more life than it actually has by bring myths and Legends to life within it. And Dartmoor is an amazing place to visit, so full of wonder and captivating scenery, and Georgina has brought so much to it in her writing. I love the story line from the get go, was carried on throughout without stop when I started it last night! Haven't been able to put it down until this very moment when I came to write this review.
5 Stars, 10/10, 100% excited for the next installment (Obsession).
I don't feel that this book should solely be aimed at Teenagers because myself and my sister enjoyed this very much. It has a cute puppy-dog love theme to it and the innocence is lovely, it's beautiful to read. Daisy is such a pipperoo! (less)

It didn't even get slow, it kept going, kept me wanton, kept me reading. I love all the characters, I loved the twists and turns. Had me fooled twice on Hall and Kim, but I'm satisfied with how it turned out. Bravo. Can't wait for more ***** (less)

I love the naivety of the main character Scarlett, the true Innocence of teenage years and her love interest Jake. I'm a big Witch fan being a long line of Pagan's in my family, i've grown up with the stories and especially love the tales of Salem and the Witch trails. I love the mysterious twists and turns (not to give anything away on that) and the developments of her 'Visions' (is all i'm gunna say!), the secret society in which the truth is hidden from the community... it's gripping, I love how it's captivated genres and created a magical spin. Scarlett's mother reminds me of a few people as well haha (less)

With my love of Genres like 'Erotica', I instantly look for the straight away short sharp injection ... and this delivers it. Kim doesn't tip-toe around the tulips, she instantly grips you with 'thought for food' and 'imagination for dessert'.
You have the young, beautiful, smart, lovely and kindhearted, Spencer Marshall girl. She's an executive assistant, striving to be CEO of a start-up internet company called; "Better Keep Jogging Baby" (www.bkjb.com). The company's website privides page after page of fitness and nutrition tips and information to the world. Features and Reviews the locals and highly eclaimed gyms around America. Spencer, being brought up in a less fortunate family life, gives her that grateful and symathetic edge, which is why she can never say no, and believe it's the reason she's dealt such shite cards. She gives you the sense that she's worked hard to get where she is and she'll keep at it no matter what; and she's done really well for herself. Her simpatico and subtle support system is provided by her best friend and roommate, Ryan Kennedy, the sharp shooting, hard hitting force that Spencer needed in her life, she forces her recovery after a bad break-up. Spencer's recent luck of the draw found her in termoil with ex-boyfriend Travis, AKA; TravAss, AKA: "Biggest mistake in her life so far". Fate takes a back-seat and she's saved by destiny when she is nominated to do a report/ checkout/ take advantage of a 2 week free gym membership at the local and newly opened gym; "Club 24" by her boss, whom should have been doing that report herself. Spencer takes the challenge and heads to the gym where destiny meets her at the front head-on.
Now some would say it was predictable that Spencer would find someone at the gym, i'm sorry but how many times have you found someone at the gym? Especially after a brutal break-up? No, I didn't think so. It isn't as predictable as you might think, it's hard enough after a break-up that you'd instantly get back out there searching for another potential relationship, you're heart broken, you're insecure, you're vulnerable... especially in Spencer's circumstances, she had her heart broken and stamped on. TrevAss was unfaithful, caught jolly-rodgering his secretary in his office! A-Hole!
So like I was saying, it's not predictable to say that Spencer would meet someone at the gym. At first I thought it was going to be the Instructor, the Trainer, or even the dirty towel boy, but never the owner of the gym, i expected most gym owners to be less than fit, or is that just the stereo-type in my talking!! In any case, the owner of this gym had to be where destiny handed her the lushous, sexiest, buffiest, amazeballs, Brandon Montgomery from Texas. Spencer had hit the jack-pot with this guy.
At first it seemed he wasn't internested, and it's probably something that would happen to me lol he doesn't actually speak to her for the first week, he just smiles a lot and makes eye contact, but never says a thing to her. Like I would have, Spencer cuts her losses and decides to give up on the idea of Hotty at the gym and her.
I won't give no more away, it'll turn into a spoiler rather than a review as my partner says (lol) you can see this review on my blog review at firstname.lastname@example.org, facebook page @Author2AuthorBC, also on most social and media sites like Goodreads/Barnes & Noble etc...
Awesome first book Kim, I'm looking forward to getting the full set and continue my journey with Spencer and Brandon in 'Wanted'. (less)
