I’m pretty sure it hasn’t escaped anyone’s notice that except for romance, I am also a fan of YA novels (where there is always romance as well). 🙂
And I must say, I didn’t think I was going to say this (I blame it on Ms Blade) but now that I finally read a stand-alone book, I am wishing for sequels. Usually, I’m upset with the cliffhanger in all those YA series but now I read this and enjoyed it a lot, I wish there were more adventures for Tessa and Hayden.
Tessa who is Miss Perfect (and I don’t mean it in a condescending way) and Hayden who is the poster bad boy. 🙂 And who of course gets in contact with his conscience and good nature during the book.
Again, I don’t mean it in a condescending way, it’s actually quite nicely done.
I must say I enjoyed all the Star Wars references (especially when those concerned Hayden).
I could give a word about the story now. 🙂
Basically, Tessa finds out she’s a witch and can do all these interesting things, and is courtes by one group that is saying the other possible group to belong to is not nice. Of course. 🙂
So, Hayden is enlisted as her bodyguard during school hours and this is where the story starts. It’s easy to follow and enjoy the book, it has the feel of watching a good teenage movie.
One of the things I especially liked is that the problems don’t rain from all sides but some situations actually have a positive resolution.
And, of course, the novel ends with a happy-end and the final feeling. Which is something I missed (everything nowadays is coming out in numerous sequels, not that I mind a lot, but it’s hard keeping track in your head what happened where).
So, even though I was happy to press my Kindle button for the last page, I did feel a bit sad I wasn’t going to read more about Tessa and Hayden.
(which is in no way an endorsement to Ms Blade to write a sequel, I believe the story is perfect the way it is and that a sequel might ruin the whole)
