Debbie I Heart YA Books
True Intentions definitely had me biting my nails. Lisa Kuehne has penned an incredible trudging storyline where opposites do attract. I was teetering on the edge of my seat with the suspense between Ava and Sam. When you get to the end and think its going to happen for Ava and Sam, Kuehne gives you an intense cliffhanger. I will definitely be watching and waiting for the second book in the True Intentions series.

Sixteen-year-old Ava is going through a lot after her twin brother and father dies.

Ava’s story starts out looking pretty bleak. She’s lost both her twin and her father in the same day, and within months, her mother has moved them across the country. The story was very fast-paced and filled with adrenaline. There was never a moment where I was waiting for the story to pick back up. I wanted to turn the page and find out what would happen next. This book definitely kept me up late at night reading.

I really enjoyed Ava as a character

True Intentions had me hanging on page after page. I honestly never saw the twists coming until they happened. Unpredictable, fast-paced, and at some points quite tear inducing. It is your typical paranormal romance: it has your bad boy, relatable girl, tragic past, and good vs. evil all in one amazing ya package. Oh, did I mention the love story, swoon worthy. Definitely a reread title. Yes, it's that good.

True Intentions is a quick read, but very enjoyable. At 257 pages it's shorter than a lot

True Intentions is a definite must read! It will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you longing for more. I thought I was going to get a thumb cramp from pushing the page forward button on my kindle so fast. I just couldn't put this down, it's so good!

Ava is a teenager trying to deal with the loss of her twin brother and their dad after a car accident. If that isn't enough to deal with, her mom decides to move them from their home in Chicago to California. It's at her new school that Av

The prologue of this novel is beautifully written and drew me into the story in a heartbeat. Needless to say, I liked this novel a lot! Kuehne is a gifted writer and to say I was mesmerized by the prose and the storyline would be an understatement. I liked the ideas of dark angels controlled by Satan, and I really loved Sam’s character. Although he’s a dark angel, he does seem to come over the light and remain there throughout most of the novel, which will automatically endear him to the reader’ ...more
