Waiting on Wednesday

By: Jus Accardo
Publication Date: May 1, 2012
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
From Goodreads: 
 "Sequel to TOUCH.

When a Six saved Kale’s life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she’d lose the one thing she’d give anything to keep… And as if it’s not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez's problems.

After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice—surrender to Denazen for the cure…or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn’t involve being bagged and tagged—or losing someone she loves—Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there’s a traitor among them. Jade.

Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there’s any hope of proving Jade’s guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead..."

I loved Touch, if you haven't read it you should.  You can find the first few chapters here.  For those of you that have already read Touch you can go here to read character interviews.

Review: Open Minds

Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn
Publisher: CreateSpace
Publication Date: November 1, 2011

"When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf’s mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she’s dragged deep into a hidden world of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her." (From

Susan Quinn builds an amazing futuristic world where everyone can read mind once they reach puberty and it is those that cannot link in with others that are outcasts and are known as zeros. Kira was an amazing heroine I was drawn into her emotions and world as she struggles against the prejudice of being a zero.  I have found a new book boyfriend in Rafe, if I have one complaint about this book it is that there wasn’t enough of Rafe.  He protects and supports Kira as best he can as she struggles everyday to make it through school while the teachers teaches telepathically, all electronics are controlled mentally, and she is targeted by bullies (pravers).  This has great character development and goes at a great pace as they story unfolds.  Even as Kira begins to develop powers she discovers she must hid them or risk even worse prejudice than being a zero (and she’s not the only one).  Kira does not set out to become a hero, but does anyway though her courageous actions throughout the book.  This was a fantastic read and I can’t wait to read the second book Open Hearts. 

You can read the first chapter here.

Waiting on Wednesday

By: Jennifer Armentrout
Publication Date: September 18, 2012
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press

From Author's Website:
"Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time."
I'm already obsessed with Armentrout's Covenant series which has been getting a lot of buzz even though the first book isn't published till October.  Until then you can get acquainted  with her writing with her free read Daimon over at

Review: The Pace

The Pace by Shelena Shorts
Publisher: Lands Atlantic Publishng
Publication Date: August 19, 2009

"Nineteen-year-old Weston has everything.  He's super hot, mysterious, dangerous, sincere, and vulnerable.  He's also a one-of-a-kind evolution that will change the idea of immortality forever.  Anyone would be drawn to hm, even without fate's intervention, and when eighteen-year-old Sophie crashes into him, there's no turning back.  

All that remains is figuring out who, or what, he is, and with a little perseverance, she'll find out the indelible truth--right along with a century-old secret...and a threat for which neither of them are prepared." (From back of the book)

My Review:
The story starts out pretty normally where the reader is introduced to the main character, Sophie, who has recently moved to California and has a close relationship with her mother.  One day she literally crashes her car into Wes', who insists he doesn't want her insurance information and drives off.  From that brief encounter I was hooked to the story, the chemistry felt real, instantaneous, and believable. I found myself wondering about his motives and the mystery behind him.  When the secret was finally revealed I was impressed by such an original idea for sci-fi.  Most of the book is focused on Wes and Sophie's relationship and their development as a couple which I loved, but don't worry there is plenty of drama and some action as well once other people become aware of Wes' secret and well as the truth about Sophie.  Sophie is a great character she is not afraid to say what is on her mind (including when she thinks Wes is acting ridiculous)  and is very independent.  She has a lot to deal with when she finds out the truth about Wes and herself, I don't want to give too much away other than these two are destined to be together.  Wes is beyond sweet, protective, and caring he makes a great love interest (especially during a certain carnival scene). I will admit I got a little frustrated with Wes at one point, even though his heart was in the right place.  I would definitely recommend this book to others and I know other review are comparing it to other books such as Twilight, but I feel Shorts made this story her own.  This was a great read with 3 other books in the series, the second one The Broken Lake is already out and book three will be out in August. 

You can read the first chapter on amazon and decide if you want to order it
