Don’t blame Mother Nature.

Skylar is sure she should stay away from Mason Grand, but their attraction is undeniable. Then Skylar’s life erupts into turmoil. She steps into a world where descendants of ancient gods have super powers, evil beings chase her, and questions arise about her own identity. She is running out of time and running for her life, while trying to unravel the mystery of what they want from her.

Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will Skylar find the answers she seeks, or will she die trying?

Review:

Skylar is your typical carefree teenager. She spends every summer with her cousin Kayla who she can’t wait to see.  It is the last summer before they both go off to college and of course the only thing they want to do is hang by the beach and look for boys. Things may have taken a little turn in their plans when Kayla has to work at her mom’s dinner because they are shorthanded. That does not seem to stop the boy plans however when the Grand brothers come into eat.  Hot is an understatement. Skylar seems to have an instant attraction to Mason Grand, but the grand brothers is not what they seem.  Skylar soon finds out and is introduced to a world that has only existed in books.  This new world seems to be sucking Skylar in and in the dead way.  Who is she and why are they trying to kill her.  Skylar is learning that she is not who she thought she was.  Not only is she fighting for her life but for her identity as well. Who is she?

Cute story, faced paced, interesting twist on Demi Gods.  There were a few holes in the story, especially when Skylar does go back to college after fighting for her life.  but am thinking I may learn more in the next installment.  Definitely will pick it up and finish the series, the way book one ended I have no choice, I have to know.

If you like young adult fantasy with a twist of romance and demi gods.  Then I recommend.
