I'm wondering if I read (and couldn't even finish) the same book as everyone else here...

It seemed to me that this book was written for my 12 year old self. I rolled my eyes so many times, I got a headache. Anyone who thinks that this was a good story, needs to actually read Richelle Mead...or Kim Harrison...or ANYONE else.

I LOOOOVED this book from page one. In Enchant Me, Mrs. Violet builds a world in which the impossible seems possible with her depth of the character's emotions and detailed description of locations. I love the character of Alexis because she is strong and vulnerable at the same time and understands the world in a way many adults are still trying to figure out. Christian oh Christian. Christian is "beautiful" even if he would wish you'd use another word and kind, and sweet and loving. He is by no ...more

I am enchanted! I thought this was great paranormal romance grounded in Druid Religion practices. Alexis was a strong and unique girl that immediately drew me into the story. She was artistic and slightly punk and outspoken. The story begins as Alexis meets Christian while taking pictures for the school newspaper at an art exhibit where Christian is showing his paintings. The attraction is instant but they really don't meet. The next day at school an unknown senior girl drops off a small gift to ...more

The book was OK.
I really liked the characters, which is important for me as a reader; if I don't like the characters, the book is shot. Alex was refreshing: she strayed from the mold, but not so much that she was an outcast. And let's face it, she was a bad ass (you'll have to read to find out how). Christian was sexy in all the right ways, and sweet & caring, yet kind of scary sometimes.
It was nice to see how their relationship developed. However, I would've liked to see more of the friend

OK, I have mixed feelings towards this book. I liked how strong the relationship of Christian and Alexis was but I didn't like how quickly they became involved- I mean they hardly know each other and yet they act like they have been in love for years. Also, I didn't like how in the blurb, this book was made to be mostly about how she is forming into becoming a druid and how this is affecting her life and relationship-but her druid-ness seemed to dominate about one chapter and that was it; the re ...more

I honestly can't remember how I came across this novel on Amazon, but it was likely through my 'recommendations' page. I've been feeling the need to get back into a paranormal world and of course, I do love me some YA so this seemed the perfect fit. There weren't a lot of ratings to go off of and I kind of love that about a book. I enjoy reading what hasn't been over rated, publicized and read yet. Why? I honestly don't know but it probably has something to do with my ego loving to be among the ...more

I read the reviews and I knew what to expect but even still, the constant make out scenes came as a surprise. It was allll making out. Don't get me wrong I'm all for hot hookups in a book to keep it interesting, but if anything the constant kissing that led to.....NOTHING got old really fast and it actually had an adverse affect and it quelled my interest. I disliked the novel for other reasons too, A) there seemed to be little to no character development. I felt like we just jumped into a relat ...more

Really cheesy with a lot of twilight-esque descriptions and dialogue with a kind of undeveloped plot. I think it might have had the potential to be a decent book if it developed the druid plot a bit more and focused a bit less on the guy's "taut stomach" and "chocolatey brown eyes".

I give this 3.5 stars. It was good and I loved the romance but that's all it was. I like a little more action. Its annoying reading nothing but how hot someone is or how much you love them.

I don't know where to begin. I really don't want to sound like a jerk, but... this is a terrible book.

When I first read about Enchant Me, I was intrigued. The description felt fresh and unique. After all, I had never read anything that had to do with druids. Another plus -- I grew up around Steilacoom and was curious to see how it looked in a fictional world.

As it turns out, nothing about this story worked for me, not even the setting that I knew and loved. Maybe I'm overly sensitive because I

"Enchant Me" is quick and interesting read about a 17 year old girl, Alexandra (Lexi) who discovers that she is developing certain strange powers. In addition, she is fighting off the unwavering attention of an ex boyfriend turned stalker. He has managed to turned many of the seniors against her and they are spreading rumors. Rather than confront the rumors Lexi just goes about her business.

Then, while photographing various artist's work at a school art show, Lexi sees the most handsome boy she

ok so this book has left me seriously confused.
I wanted to hate it - I really did - but it's hard to do that when you have a stupid grin on your face for most of it.

The novel was definitely rushed, I mean, they were 'in love' after just seeing each other? No, I call bull s***. Alexis annoyed me greatly, and I'm pretty sure the only reason I continued with Enchant Me was because A, I had nothing left on my Kindle, and B, Christian. He saved the book for me, and as annoying as it was that he rus

I've read alot of the other reviews on this book and was a little surprised. Alot of the people who have read this book didn't like it very much. It was to childish, to much kissing, blah blah blah. That doesn't mean i would not read a book because of a couple of bad reviews. My moto is if i like it ima get it. So i did and let me tell you this book was amazing! I can understand where others are coming from but i liked the plot and loved the characters. I never in a million years thought Alexis ...more

Alexis's life seems to be falling apart. Then she meets Christian and things just get strange. She starts seeing visions of things that are about to happen. Soon she finds out that she is about to come into her druid powers. In the mix of finding Christian she has to deal with a stalker with druid powers as well, Christian hiding his druid powers from her and figuring out her own powers. Will this town ever be the same again?

For the last year or so I have been struggling to get into any book tha

While I enjoyed reading this novel there were a few things that I didn't like. I wish that in reading this, that we were not thrown into the daily tasks that Alexis had gone through. I think a little is good, but do we need to know ALL of it.. all the unimportant things. I think that when this happens, maybe the writer has run out of things and needs to regroup, but I dont particularly like this kind of thing in a book. I can say though that I didn't feel bored at the information, just that I .. ...more

This book is AMAZING!!! I devoured it in literally twelve hours- and I mean ten at night to ten or so in the morning, during school hours, including sleep!! I was awestruck with how beautifully written it was, how intense and gripping the plot was, how relatable the characters were, and how every page left me yearning for more. As a writer myself, I understand how difficult it is to maintain a solid, slow-enough, yet quick enough pace-- in this novel, the pace is absolutely flawless. My only cri ...more

This book started out pretty well but to be honest, I just couldn't finish it. The two main characters, Alexis and Christian, got together way too fast. By the second chapter, he was calling her "his." They barely knew anything about each other and they were already together. I like a book that takes its time developing the relationship where the reader can get to know the character as an individual and form a bond with them. I felt no connection to Alexis whatsoever. Overall, I felt that the bo ...more

I am seriously on the the fence with this one, the first 250pgs were rather annoying basically revolving around Alexis infatuation with Christian. I was seriously wondering how in the hell I ended up with this crap on my kindle, but in the last part of the book when I found out about all the magical stuff (which should have been way earlier in the book) and then it came to an abrupt end???? Then I found out there is a less then 200pg sequel, to a 420pg novel size book? it would have made more si ...more

This is an interesting story about family secrets, magic, a scary stalker, and falling in love. The basic premise is a little familiar. Alexis, the protagonist comes of age only to find that there is a family secret that affects her. Her soulmate, Christian, has secrets of his own. There are also unique elements that set this story apart from similar ones. Author Anne Violet infuses a lot of imagination into this book.

The many punctuation and sentence structure problems in this book make it a di

This wasn't a book where I could say wow everything was great and it left me wanting more, When it comes to sequels I don't like reading one after another because then I get bored, for me I have to read a book and then come back months later and read the 2nd book for me to really enjoy it. This book was good another YA read. I like the magical aspect of it and I like the 2 main characters mostly the male character christian he was a good guy and a strong character. I would recommend this to anyo ...more

Engrossing - I loved it! Alexi captured my attention from the first. Even though she's a teen with something slightly different to offer the world, I liked that her character is confident, self-assured and not mired in dark teen angst. Don't get me wrong, she has her moments but they seem to only make her more realistic.

The ex? I wasn't feeling it. I think he should have been a little more visible. Loved Christian.

I was also happy the book rounded everything up in two books. I'm getting pretty t

I thought this was a sweet and quirky book. Alexis the main character is a wild child, that has this delicious edgy side with her flaming non-natural red hair & high end Hayabusa motorcycle. She has good friends, a crazy stalker ex-boyfriend and hater senior girls that torment her post break up.
In steps Christian! HOTTY MCBODY! As their relationship just to warp speed so does her "Druid powers" interesting paranormal twist for me.
The story is nice, a little long but it kept my attention.

This book was alright. The intro spoke of Druidism, mystic powers and a love interest with mystery. There was a little bit of mystery, a little bit of maybe Druidism, some mystic powers.. And a whole lot of the gushy first love make out sessions that are every young teenage girls fantasy. I think I can honestly say that the main characters spend atleast 90% of the book making out. Now I love a good romance any day but this was just a little too gushy and not enough plot and story line that was f ...more

Started this book the other night hoping it would live up to the standards of its description. However, I'm really disappointed as to how it's been structured and the lack of drama. Alexis and Christian's relationship seemed to appear out of no where, it was just too sudden and I keep hoping for a big build up to some dramatic scene or more about being a Druid. Nonetheless, nothing like that appears to have happened. I've read over 60 books of similar genre and this is one of the worst I've read ...more

I had to put this book aside and read another one, it was not what I wanted to read at that moment. but when I came back to it, and gave it a fair try. I found that I realy liked the story. It wasn't the best book I've read, but I found myself getting into it about half way through. Boy meets girl, boy finds out girl has powers, pushes girl away and SURPRISE...boy has powers too. well I will read the second book since I liked this well enough.

From the moment Anne Violet read her first romance novel as a teenager she knew she wanted to be a writer. She grew up in a home where Star Trek was continuously on, so it's only natural that sci-fi, fantasy and the paranormal become her favorite genres, and her favorite writing influences today. Add a dash of romance and sensuality and you have the combination that shes addicted to. In her non-wr ...more
