Danielle Kennedy is not one to believe in fairy tale love or destiny holding a plan for the future, nor does she believe in mythical legends, vampires, or spirits...

At sixteen, athletic, honor student Danielle has her life planned out: study hard, play soccer even harder, and slide through high school under the radar. It was a good plan, a solid plan, one that’s worked so

I have a love hate relationship with this. There are so many things I loved that were just great about this novel and then other things infuriated me to no end.
I'll start with the things I loved. The concept and premise. This was so different from any other paranormal romance there that going into it I really didn't know where the author was going to take that. The whole seventh son of the seventh son concept is great and you really don't see it to mu

First of all this book was AMAZING! This book made it to my top five favorite books of all time. This book blew me away! Destiny has everything a paranormal romance reader could possibly want vampires, adorable true love, hilarious friends, action and a hot guy with magical powers that is actually sweet!

This book starts with Danielle who is nervous about starting school now that her best friend, Trista, has moved. Luckily she still has her friend, Kirby, to help her out. I know what your think

Okay, so anyone that reads my reviews know I only write about horrible books and great books. This is, by far, is one of the worst books I have every read. It lacks originality, a decent plot, and good characters. The only reason I gave this book one star is because Deborah Ann had to have serious balls to actually publish this. Speaking of, who the heck allowed this to be published?!
1. This is twilight with a few exceptions. One, witches instead of vampires. Two, the guy gets hot instead of a

This book is absolutely amazing! I had such a fun time reading it. Very interesting to have a twist on the caverns and many of the surroundings. Though, I will say the ending frustrated me just because I wanted more! Nice plot set up and establishing characters and their relationships. Fantastic book, a must read!!

WARNING ANGRY RANT!!!! This book started off so great and then it just stalled out completely after the first few chapters. Chapter after chapter after fricken chapter of them just talking to each other saying how much they love one another. It got old real damn quick and quite frankly pissed me off that I waisted $7.99 hoping for an epic love story with some vampire danger. There was 2 damn vampires in the whole damn book of 500 pages and they were in the early chapters!!! No adventure, no exci ...more

This book started off very promising and I truely do like Danielle and Caydens relationship however....and I can't believe I'm saying this...there is to much romance. Typically I like some romance between the main characters, rather then the obnoxious build up, but this was right out of the gate and non stop. I wish there would have been more story line. It was like "oh I love you" "I love you more" non freaking stop. When there were dramatic scenes the writing was spectacular and the relationsh ...more

So Danielle is starting school without her best friend for the first time...But don't worry, Cayden is there to help her. They apparently have gone to school together their whole lives but she never really paid attention to him. But after an unbelievably unrealistic growth spurt and purchase of a motor cycle to go with his new cocky attitude Danielle finally notices he exists. So by lunchtime she is riding on his motorcycle in a miniskirt (cuz that's classy) and getting all loopy over his scent ...more

I received this book as a Goodreads give away.

The book was well written and held my interest. It's a good love story between two young people, though their constant expressions of love for each other was little over the top. The characters are endearing.

I know this is book 1 of a three book series, but I expected it to have a story of its own that wrapped up at the end of the book and it didn't. It's like Deborah wrote the book and then just split the manuscript into three pieces.

It was an okay read but cayden did remind me of Edward Cullen a lot, plus the romance between the two main characters reminded me so much of Bella and Edward. Otherwise it was an interesting read.
