She soon finds herself torn between two guys. Well, I guess that is what she would call them, even though one is a dead Alien King.

MAX, a dead alien who is trapped in limbo between two worlds and longs for Vanessa, his destiny, to help him home and become his

(I received this book from the author in exchange from an honest review).

My first thought: What just happened? Now I have to wait until the next book is released?
Destiny Unhinged presents us Vanessa, a regular girl about to turn seventeen, who is fighting between two guys. A book that presents us another world and little sneak picks from something else.

The whole story moves extremely fast, in just a few pages we move from a single girl with a boring life, to a girl meeting an alien king and a re

Destiny Unhinged
by Kimber Shook

I received a copy of Destiny Unhinged by Kimber Shook in exchange for an honest review.  This was a cute story about a girl getting ready to turn seventeen.  She has never experienced her first kiss,  and with that has never been in love.  All that is about to change for her.  After setting up her best friend with a guy named Harold she is pushed into meeting his friend Toby.  From the beginning there is something that is drawing them together but t

This was a very interesting story. I liked the unique twist on alien culture and the parameters of other worlds. One of the things I love about the science fiction genre is the ability to create anything. Kimber has created a very interesting juxtaposition of worlds with this story. I was up more than one night past my bed time reading just one more page.

The characters are interesting. The main character is as annoying as any other teenager you would meet. She made me shake my head more than onc

Destiny Unhinged


Vanessa is quiet and a bit on the shy side. It's almost her 17th birthday and all she wants is a boyfriend and maybe some excitement to save her from her dull and boring life. But even before her birthday she finds herself town between two guys. She feels drawn to both of them in different ways. Max is a dead alien king from another world who claims that she is his destiny. Toby is a guy from school who seems to show an interest and desire to be with her, but his destiny is meant

Vanessa is a cute girl about to turn seventeen, never kissed and innocent. When she goes with her Mother and grandmother to the cemetery to bring flowers to diseased family members, she wanders ofdf and sits under tree near a grave of Max, who died young and it was never resolved why. while she sits there and wonders about him, he suddenly appears and tells her he has been waiting for her and wants to make her his queen.

When she sets up her best friend with Harold, her friends insists on a doubl

I think that the premise for Destiny Unhinged was good. Kimber Shook took the girl trying to choose between two boys scenario and added some extra elements. Instead of vampires and werewolves we have an alien king and what we assume is a human boy (I have my doubts).

Vanessa was an interesting girl. She seemed a little flighty but I guess who wouldn't be with two guys trying to make them their destiny, right? Sometimes she was super spunky and told them just how she felt. She was quick to forgive

I was given this book for an honest review.

The book was good and cute. It was maybe a little to cute for me on some parts but I did enjoy it. I liked the authors writing and she gave great detail about the story. Oh and it had an ending that can drive a person nuts waiting for the next one. I would recommend this book for older teens due to the cussing and tiny bit of sexual stuff. But over all I liked it and hopefully there will be another book soon

The book leaves you hanging at the end, with no real ending. I was disappointed that I finished the book but did not learn the end of the story.
