Captivate Me

Series: Captivated #1
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Published: April 1st 2014
Captivate Me (Book One: The Captivated Series)
Captivate Me is a spinoff from the original series. This was a sweet read that I thoroughly enjoyed. 

“I missed you today,” he said suggestively, his lips at the cusp of my ear. 
My entire body hummed. “I missed you too.” 
Before another thought could form, his lips eagerly fused to mine. So soft and warm. He pulled me closer so my body molded to his, and my hands tangled in his golden hair. Our first kiss! 
His tongue slid between my lips, and a shiver ran through me. Oh my… Our heads wove together as the kiss deepened, warming me from the inside out. I could have stood here and done this with him forever. Screw dinner!

Hehe!! My review for Captivate Me can be found HERE!!

“My mom had always told me – when you meet “the one”, you’ll know; they’ll captivate your heart the moment you lay eyes on them. I had always wondered, though, if my mom’s words of wisdom were finite – if they applied to everyone. Maybe those who had found their one great love were the lucky few, and maybe the rest of us would have to settle for less than earth-shattering.”

Seventeen-year-old Kat Walsh is a Gifted – a human with paranormal abilities. With her mom a former Angel and her dad a dream prophet, it’s always been in her genetic make-up to be extraordinary. Unfortunately for her, the world can’t handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak – even the ones she thought were her closest friends.

Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school – Levi. Everything feels normal again… or does it?

Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she’s never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen – students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things vying for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice – will she settle for ‘great’ Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across ‘amazing?’

From the author of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles, comes a refreshingly different Young Adult series with plenty of love, suspense, and a new take on the Paranormal.
