At first glance, if it looks like a human and talks like a human, you wouldn’t generally assume that it would be anything other than human, right? Now, if you saw someone with an ability to do things that were unnatural or completely morphing into something with scales, what would you think then? Would you think that they were still human? Hayes will continue to entertain, mystify, and captivate readers in the second installment of The Chameleon Effect series.

I will say that I have read the first book and enjoyed it and really glad I was able to get the second book to see what happens. You could read as a standalone but it would be way better to read them in order as the characters carry over into this book. The story continues with Cadi and Idris and what happens after the first book. The author also brings back in two friends of Cadi’s from the first book but goes more in depth with them. I enjoyed the flow of the story and after I got reading did ...more

Mix teenage angst and hormones, bad family life and alien kids and you’ve got a bizarre story to say the least. If you enjoy romance, science fiction and paranormal stories, then this one is up your alley. Although, it is the second in a series, I didn’t feel that I need to know what happened before to know the main characters as the author developed them here. It was a little slow at first and deals with the bad family life and teenage romance and infatuation. Toward the last quarter of the sto ...more

A unique and intriguing sci-fi romance, Perfect Pitch by Alex Hayes will have readers engrossed and wildly entertained until the very end.

Idris and Cadi finally know who they really are and where they come from. They’re shapeshifting aliens with extraordinary powers who are bonded for life. After closing the wormhole and confessing to their foster parents, Idris and Cadi finally begin to feel at home. But, with their enemies relentlessly hunting their kind, Idris and Cadi will never be truly saf

I think what I liked best about this is that it really teaches you not to make assumptions about people. In the first book, Dean accidentally reveals Cadi’s secret about being telekinetic and it’s easy to think that he’s a jerk for doing so, especially when it brings complete upheaval to her life. But in this book, we see what Dean is really going through. The chapters alternate between his story and Cadi’s (although Idris isn’t too far behind), and it is a nice blend of the extraordinary (the b ...more

Book two alternates between Cadi and Dean (Dean an ex friend, almost boyfriend, who sort of betrayed her and kinda outed her abilities in the first book) and is set about six months after the end of the first.
Cadi actually got on my nerves a bit in this second book. But I loved getting to see inside Dean’s head and getting to meet his little brother TY.

In this book Cadi’s pasts collide. Her past past, cue evil alien’s out to get her and Idris. And her more recent past, cue awkward and jealous mo

This is one of those series that defies genres. I agree with the marketing that this could be a great story for both YA and New Adult readers. But not only that, we jump between Contemporary, Paranormal, and Scifi worlds. 

This does create a bit of confusion at first trying to create the right world for the characters, but I don't think it deterred too much from what was going on. 

I really liked the character-building and the heritage the two main characters found themselves to have. If you are a

I wish I’d read book one before jumping into Pitch Perfect, because this was such a fun book and I think I missed out on book one fun!

I really enjoyed the mix of NA and YA. I think for a PNR novel, this mix of classifications made for a really unique story. I loved the characters in this novel. They were really unique and relatable.

I said yes to this blog tour on a whim, and I am so glad I did. I intend to read book one asap, and I’m looking forward to reading more from Alex Hayes. Definitely ch

I got the opportunity to have an advanced copy of this book and I'm so glad I did. I devoured it in a day and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved Silken Scales because, as a musician, the idea of sound waves and perfect pitch as a "super power" is just too awesome to me. I love the characters of Idris and Cadi. Having this book focus more on the humans that support them was a really great shift of perspective. Alex Hayes approached manipulative relationships perfectly, I think. Dean's reactions to hi ...more

I absolutely adored this book and didn't want it to be over when I got to the end. When I did get to the end, there was a definite and satisfying conclusion to the book, while still leaving things open to continue the series (I love series, but I dislike when a book ends without wrapping up the main plot point, and this book avoids that). I donate blood every two weeks and normally play a couple of games on my phone. Not today--I spent the time reading this book instead. I had no desire to quit ...more

You know when you like a book so much, that is hard to find words to describe it ... that Pitch Perfect for me.

Pitch Perfect is such a moving story. I was all in from the start to the finish and I loved every page of it. It's one of those stories that touch your soul and stay with you, change you in play with your emotions.

And as the story progresses there is that paranormal aspect - my favorite. :)

Loved it!

This is the second book in this series. I was expecting to meet another Livran couple and hear their story, but this book goes into more depth about Cadi and Idris, and how they come to terms with all that’s going on. And believe me, there is a lot going on. I read this book in one day. You do get to meet Rowan, but not her mate. I’m looking forward to their story.

It's a series that I inexplicably enjoy, for why should I like Secular YA Romance.
If I had to make a complaint against this novel, it would be that Idris seems more two dimensional in this book.

This was a fun sci fi read, there are some real life struggles the kids are going through brought up. There is also a lot of sexual tension, thankfully the author skips that scene but you do read lead up and after.

This series seriously pulls you in and doesn't let go! Action-packed fight scenes, out-of-this-world characters (deliberate winky face) and a steady story line kept me reading until the last page. This has also been one of my favorite integrations of using a side character from book 1 into a main character for book 2 while keeping pace with the original main characters as well. The end might have been tied up a little *too* neatly for my taste but it didn't distract from the overall satisfaction ...more

Petty cute book. Good for a teen girl into fantasy with a little just leaving high school romance.

Read my full review here:

Opinions: In all honesty, I found this book to stretch the limits a little too far. Hayes attempted to find a new supernatural creature to twist up a teen romance, but I thought it was a little weird. The obsession with sexual tension and hormones due to being from another planet pushed the limits, and I didn't see the point of it. The supernatural element was a little cheesy and took away from a perfectly decent family and friend

Alex Hayes lives in a castle. Not one of those dark, damp ones in England (or Scotland, even) where it rains all the time, but a white one with the view of a volcano where it’s sunny 364 days out of the year.

She hosts four cats. One white queen. Two black knights. And a ginger jester, famed for her impressive backflips and pirouettes.
