it was amazing

It took a few pages for me to get into this book because I'm not usually into MCs like Charlotte, snarky and into wild parties, but as I got to know Charlotte, I realized there was depth to her. Plus, as a New England resident, I saw that her salty demenour (no pun intended) matched that of several New England girls I know.
When I started reading this book, I didn't know much about it - just that it was an urban fantasy. And I've got to say, knowing little made it an exciting, unexpected read. There were some nice twists and there was a refreshing originality to the plot. Despite my initial reservations regarding Charlotte, I could not put the book down. Jenkins wove an engaging tale and I wanted to see how it would end. If you enjoyed Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, you will probably also enjoy Lure. Additionally, if you enjoyed Stephanie Perkins' Anna and the French Kiss, you may want to branch out and give Lure a shot. If you read Lure, you'll understand why...

Annie McElfresh I sooooo loved this book! I thought is was soooo awesome and I am glad I stumbled upon it! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)

Samantha Dawson Agreed. I saw that Charlotte had more depth almost immediately though and I started to read this book because of your comment that it was similar to Anna and the French Kiss. So true! The love interest aspect and steamy moments are there with the urban fantasy twist!
