The stark white hallways smelled like cleaning fluid as I navigated my way through the throngs of students. I glanced down at the piece of white paper with the number 301 written on it and looked back up. Down right panic coursed through my veins when I realized the lockers didn’t have numbers on them; only weird symbols tha

This is not your ordinary zombie story, or even your typical voodoo story either. There is something completely different about this book that sets it apart from the rest of the books that are out there. Nicole Simone manages to create a world that easy to get lost in. I couldn’t put the book down after I turned the first page.

Sky Noel has lived in Los Angeles for most of her life but after the tragic death of her best friend her mother moves her to Castor, Louisiana

"Sky, my intention wasn't to reject you." His eyes blazed with fire. "I wanted to devour you but now is not the time. Not like this."

"It was a gift when the priest told me if I fell in love, I would die. Finally, the nightmares would no longer haunt me and there was only one person who had ever truly captured my soul." His gaze pinned me into place. "The girl who changed everything."

I liked the story overall. It was written decently and it had compelling events in the story that made it a fascinating read. I wasn't bored and the pacing was adequate, those are two good things. Sometimes I did feel a scene was too abrupt or short but I prefer that over a long exposition any day. I just would have liked to bask in the moments a little longer than what was given. Such as the funny or romantic moments. *sigh*

I think it was good how the story kept going without seeming forced. Th

I am excited to review a paranormal this time around. I must confess it has been a while for the paranormal romance category. I am a sucker for high school romance and just heroines that find out they have some crazy existence in a paranormal world. Oh and don’t forget about the zombies, voodoo priests and Santeria, oh my!

Initial Thoughts: This book was very good I'm telling you. This was not my first paranormal book but it was my book with having zombies, well, good looking zombies at least and then add in all the other paranormal aspects and it made for one great story.

The Characters & Story: Sky moved from Los Angeles to Caster, Louisiana after her best friend died to get a fresh start. But moving did nothing but add only craziness to Sky's life. At Sky's new school, she meets Daemon which is only the star

I've been on a paranormal kick lately and just can't really get into anything else, so this was EXACTLY what I needed! I love when I start a book and it keeps me sucked in that everything else around me seems to melt away. When I hear the word zombie I automatically think the moaning scary looking dead guys that eat brains, but Nicole Simone gives you zombies that make your mouth water! So I can now add a zombie to my list of favorite book boyfriends!!!

There are a lot of similarities between The Accidental Kiss and other young adult paranormal novels I've read recently, right down to an incredibly sexy, cocky guy with green eyes named Daemon. But there are enough differences that this book stands on its own. I love the Santeria angle, and the fact that it's set in southern Louisiana is another plus for me. And yes, the Sublime song does dance happily in my head throughout the book. When they go into the Cat's Meow in the French Quarter, comple ...more

This is the second book I have read by this author. This story is a paranormal romance. The sysnopsis of this book intrigued me! As I started reading, the story of Sky just pulled me in, along with the electrically charged attraction between Sky and Daemon! I am not going to reveal any spoilers, but this book to me was really awesome! I loved the fact that it took off in a different direction than some paranormal romances. As the events unfolded, I kept turning the page because I wanted to see w ...more

The plot of this novel has been in my mind for the past five years. After countless revisions, tears and curse words, The Accidental Kiss was formed. I have never been more proud of a novel I have written. It was a true labor of love but a fun one. Thanks to Daemon, zombies have never looked so hot!

You can now pre-order The Accidental Kiss on iTunes and Barnes and Noble.

Can't wait for August 12!

I’ve had a particular method of reviewing. I finish a book and I take the night or at the very least a few hours before I review so that I can compartmentalize all of my thoughts so that when the review is written and finished it makes the right amount of sense and truly reflects that which I’ve read. I do it for the author and also for myself (as an author) and for anyone who might stumble upon it and read it.

I can’t do that here and this is why.

When I saw the cover of "The Accidental Kiss", I knew I had to read it. The cover is HOT and mysterious. I love the graveyard with the skulls, and the coloring is awesome. Mael Designs really did a wonderful job with the cover. Now, it is time to gush about the book.
From the very first page of the book, I was hooked. I thought the use of voodoo and zombies was really unique and an interesting twist for a paranormal book. The suspense of the plot made me devour the book, and the cliffhanger en

I'm going to be upfront, right here at the beginning, with this review. If not for the ending to this book, I would have rated this one higher. I loved the characters, the world building and the storyline. I thought the author's voice was engaging and kept me right in the story with the characters. But the ending of the book left me with my mouth hanging open wondering WTF just happened.

We meet Sky Noel as she and her mother begin the next chapter in their lives in Caster, Louisiana. It's her m

3.5 Happy Stars in my Sky!

I'm a big fan of paranormal romances with a hint of drama, intrigue and teen romance. This is exactly what The Accidental Kiss provides. It's difficult to describe Nicole Simone's story without giving too much away, but be prepared for a lot of the supernatural and a fun mixture of teen drama and ahem *zombies* (well sort of)!

I liked Sky (her few teenage strops aside) and felt that she dealt with all the reveals and drama well. I wasn't as convinced by her Mum because I

You all have heard me say it enough times: I don't do zombies. But these were different. The zombies weren't mindless creatures set on eating brains and destruction. They were simply humans who had traded their soul to a voodoo priest. They must do the priest's bidding in hope that they will one day re-obtain their souls.

Oh, Daemon. I love you, but sometimes I question your logic. smh. Daemon is cute and enigmatic. He mysteri

I found that this story seemed to move extremely fast and the characters, especially Sky, seem to be inordinately accepting of the reality of zombies with hardly any questioning of the situation. I would have liked to see more story development to really flesh out the backstory and the characters. The storyline itself is a great idea, I just wish it didn't feel so rushed.

I did like the characters that were introduced in this book, I just thought knowing more about them-especially Daemon-would ha

This was a really amazing change to the paranormal scene. I loved it. Who knew zombies could be so hot! I loved Daemon. This was a very great story. Romance, tragedy, friendship, love, jealousy, and so much more. So many things packed into this book to leave you on edge and wanting more. The ending was great but it left me begging to read on. I want so much more. Getting lost in this book was no problem. I found myself laughing with the girls and swooning over Daemon right along with them. This ...more

I was just not that impressed. There was a lot of built up tension throughout the story, but then the ending only lasted about 10 pages. The ending was pretty dramatic, and I should have cried or felt something, but since the story was so rushed I didn't get any time to build a relationship with the characters. When the ending happened, I just didn't care, and that's terrible. This book had a lot of potential for me, but in the end I just wasn't impressed. Regardless, I definitely encourage you ...more

I loved reading this book. It is a totally different take on zombies and voodoo than I have read previously and it was a great change. I love books with zombies but this is definitely the first one I've read where the zombie was hot, and Daemon is one sexy zombie. I loved all the characters in this book and their personalities. Nicole Simone did a great job writing this book and keeps you guessing what will happen next. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!
