Here (Here Trilogy - YA Paranormal Romance) by Ella James

 Here (Here Trilogy - YA Paranormal Romance) by Ella James

 Milo Mitchell's life used to be charmed, but that was before her family dissolved, she went a little crazy, and her best friends started acting more like strangers. Spending Saturday morning in a tree house with a stun gun for company and a herd of deer for friends is the only exciting thing in her life...until she shoots a fawn and finds her dart stuck in a guy.

Her gorgeous victim is dressed in a Brioni tux and armed with a hanky. He has no idea who or where he is. Afraid her dart caused his amnesia, Milo takes him in, names him Nick, and vows to help him solve his mystery. Soon the pair find Nick's face in a newspaper obituary, and Nick beings to have strange, ethereal memories of Milo--who is sure she's never met him. Suddenly Nick knows things he shouldn't know and is doing things he shouldn't do. When the Department of Defense shows up, Nick and Milo run--toward a shocking conclusion that could destroy both their worlds.

I liked this book. Though it was a little slow at first it soon picks up.  This was a first for me I have not read these kinds of Ya books before (I won’t tell you what kind it will rune the book) but it did leave me wanting to know the rest of the story. The ending was a bit abrupt. I think it could have ended in a better spot because it was just cut off. But I would defiantly recommend it to a friend. It was a great story and like I said I will read the others to find out what happened.
Milo is a head strong young women who has been though a lot with her father death. accidentally shoots Nick with a dart gun when she is aiming for a small female deer to tag for her dead father's research project. She has no idea how she has hit a human, but does remember a bright flash just seconds before. Dressed in a tux and her tranquilizer dart sticking in his stomach Nick remembers nothing of how he got there and where he is. Milo thinks this is all her fault and try’s to help him gain his memory back. As time goes by more weird things happen and it just brings more questions with it, like who and what is nick? Together they go on this crazy journey to get his memory back and when he finally dose it surprise’s Milo like nothing else as.

The Birth of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright

            The Birth of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright


 Long ago, a prophecy was foreseen. A child would be born, a child who held the power to destroy the world. Now, it is up to Alexander Lucas, a one-hundred-year-old vampire, to keep the baby girl safe from his arch enemy Malcolm. In order to save her, Alexander must raise the child as his own. Will he be able to resist his vampire tendencies to care for a human baby? With the help of the wisest of the supernatural, an organization called The Great Council, Alexander must face many battles to ensure the safety of this very special child.

I would describe The Birth of Jaiden as refreshing and inspirational, it’s not your typical vampire story and that right there is what I love about this book. The story centers around the life of a century old vampire named Alexander Lucas, who is struggling to come to terms with what he has become and Dealing with the death of his family. After all this time Alexander is still searching for his purpose, he breaks into his local church every night to pray. Even after what he has become he has not lost his faith in god. One day his prayers are answered, in the form of a sweet newborn baby girl. Alexander must protect and care for a newborn witch named Jaiden. For she alone holds the key to saving them all from Malcolm or destroying everything. The Birth of Jaiden really has everything you want in a paranormal book. Guardian Angels, Fallen Angels, reformed Vampire, non-reformed Vampires, good Witches, evil Witches, Slayers, and Magicians you get the Idea. Overall I loved the book and if there is a 2nd book (and boy do I hope there will be more) I will defiantly be reading it.

I loved the storyline and the characters. It’s refreshing to see something different done with paranormal romance besides the normal ghosts, Vampire and Angels ect.  It has to be one of my favorite books. You really get a feel for what Billie Is going though.  She awakes on her sixteenth Birthday from a nightmare and she is also coming into her powers as The Keeper. If that's not enough, her mother gives her a necklace that has been handed down in their family for generations on their sixteenth birthday. When her mother puts it around her neck she passes out. 
At school she starts to talk to and old childhood friend and he tells her all sorts of things she has a little bit of a hard time coming to terms with it but takes it in stride. They both try and work together so she can try and control her Power and from there things quickly turn into a love triangle, relationships end and new ones begin. Billie has a lot of hard choices to make for herself and all the while evil is trying to kill her everywhere she turns.

Strange Angels (Strange Angels #1)

         Strange Angels (Strange Angels #1)  by Lili St. Crow


 Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called "the touch." (Comes in handy when you're traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)

Then her dad turns up dead - but still walking - and Dru knows she's next. Even worse, she's got two guys hungry for her affections, and they're not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever - or whoever - is hunting her?

        The beginning of this book was a little slow for me but after a while it started to pick up and get into things. I was not really for how much Dru felt bad for her self and how helpless she seemed even after all the training her dad gave her.  It was really hard for her when her father went out on one of his missions and came back as a zombie. He was the only family she had left. Her mother was killed when she was a child and then her Gran passed away. But when she meets a homeless boy and he helps her out and shows her she's not alone. Then when they are attacked in her home by things you would only find in Grimm's books everything seems change. A djamphir boy shows up to help her and tells her what she is and has trouble coming to terms with it.

Ethereal (Celestra Series Book 1) by Addison Moore.

Ethereal (Celestra Series Book 1) by Addison Moore.


Sixteen-year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.
Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.
Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.
Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she?

I really enjoyed reading this book. You really get a feel for what Skyla’s going through. She just lost her dad, her mom gets remarried and then she has to move away. It’s a lot for her to take in. That and she can read minds. I’m only going to give it 3 stars because there really was not a lot of action going on until the end. It’s more about her finding out what she is. Hopefully the next book will pick right up and get into the action and have some twists and turns in it.
