Just a waste, even for a free book.

I don’t know where to begin with this book. I won’t summarize the plot, with no direction on who is speaking and when different characters begin to speak it’s almost impossible to enjoy what could be an entertaining read. Angst and the attempt to make something different, I think overruled what could have been a decent story.

What initially had me intrigued to read this book was was the plot, it sounded different enough and I was looking forward to reading the

This one starts with Cara being a total brat to her mom and a total bitch to everyone not a good start. And then everyone started talking and I decided this wasn't for me. I couldn't deal with high school students in California who used the following phrases...
"I would feel terribly out of place"
"aren't you a perfect gentleman" (because he introduced himself)
"then I shall come over and pick you up personally"
"it was weird to say the least"

If it was just the over the top proper dialogue

This book was confusing. It went from character POV to character POV in the same chapter. And I mean multiple like Cara, Anna, and Chad. It was hard to read because we never really could tell what was truly happening. It's better went a book keeps to a character a chapter or mark when the new one begins. I was confused so much I only made it 36% and just couldn't read anymore. I got the other two books because they were free but because this book I'm not going to read them.

I guess shifter stories are one of my favorites.q

This is a different sort of story. A human girl discovers there are other species and falls in love with one of them. He takes her to meet his parents and in doing so starts a chain of events that are still ongoing at the end. The excerpt from the second book in the series explains a lot of the reasons for what is happening. I liked it.

Not for me

This one just wasn't for me personally. I'm not big on leaving bad reviews, so I hope this doesn't come off as one. The plotline sounded amazing and interesting and I was super excited to begin reading it. Though, the moment I started the book I couldn't get into it. I wanted to, but couldn't. The writing could use a little more fine tuning, especially with dialogue. It just seems as if the author needs a better editor and more practice.

For a YA book it was exciting. From page one to the end it was hard to put down. Cara got more than she bargained for when she moved to LA. She became involved with were shifters, were beasts, Cloud aliens, and Chad, sweet Prince Chad. The pace moved quickly from scene to scene as it was tense and exciting in each chapter. Ends with a Cliffhanger. A very good read

The story did not engage me. And I skipped parts, but you could say I finished the book somewhat.
An over the top story with too many twists and turns, and I did not think the characters were believable or likeable.

Will not read the following books in this serie.

This is the first book by the author for me, so maybe another book would be more in my liking, even though I doubt it.

This story takes so many twist and turns taking you deep into a YA paranormal story you don't want to stop reading! Exciting, adventurous, and romantic! I can't wait to read more!

Truly a green tale

Interesting story but one very young and geared towards the teen crowd.. some of those books are widely accepted and so good, they appeal to all ages but this one seems to be definitely a teen book. Not saying that's bad, just too kiddish for me.

Sci Fi isn't my usual genre, however, this book had a great plot and well defined characters which made for a very enjoyable and entertaining read!

Rambling in circles

I felt this story was not quite right. The author rambled on in some places and seemed to lead the story in circles. The flow of the story was not smooth almost juvenile.

I found the story interesting and good characters...the main characters Chad and Cara are high school kids and she goes through some scary stuff while Chad being the alien I'm not sure of his real age...just know this is a cliffhanger! (which I don't really like)

An intriguing take on a paranormal/alien mix. Lots of different situations leading up to the final chapter but sometimes a little confusing. I enjoyed the story.

The story didn't feel original; it was all over the place and very predictable. The characters were not interesting as well. Anyway, got it free from Amazon for what it's worth. Thanks.
