(PDF) [Living Violet] õ Jaime Reed
The Game of Love eS open to a point honest and self depreciating This is a guy who can laugh at himself and the absurdity of his situation He s also strongnough to protect Samara and wise Solo: A Star Wars Story: Expanded Edition enough to know when to back the hell off and let her handle herself I like that Unlike a lot of so called paranormal heroes he s not watching her sleep or messing with thengine of her car to keep her from harmIn spite of this being a paranormal YA romance Ms Reed gleefully and cheerfully skewers many of its conventions including a not so subtle and well deseved dig at the Twilight books and its attendant and scary fanbase Those of us who absoutely loathed those books and the rash of copycats will sympathize with Samara Nicole Caleb and the rest of the Buncha Books staff who have to suffer through the slavish devotion such dreck has ngendered not just amongst teen girls but their momsThe other big reasons for five stars it s an interracial YA romance something there isn t nough of Samara and Caleb are a couple I liked reading about because they felt real in spite of the paranormal lements The other reason is No Cover Fail Yes Virginia that s actually a black girl on the cover of the book with a white boy Take that all you mainstream publishers who think whitewashing covers is a good business modelIn short if you re a YA reader who s been waiting for a heroine worth the name then business modelIn short if you re a YA reader who s been waiting for a heroine worth the name then Marshall is your girl and Living Violet is the book Come on Ms Reed hurry up with volume 2 I thought this book was fantastic It was not what I was xpecting but it gave me a big smile on my face Whenever I read book about a succubus it s always about a girl Not in this book
We Have A Boy Succubus Who Is have a boy succubus who is with who and what he is And that folks makes for an awesome readLike I said before this book is so cool I am so happy that I got to read the story of this young mans life and his struggles One thing I The Lady in Pink enjoyed about this book is the great tale of what he is and how he came to be I loved the back round history that Ms Reed creates for her readers I love a good back round history to characters cause it gives them character I like the rules that are set in the world Caleb s is learning to deal with his succubus side without it causingrr death I love the Samara She is spitfire girl who is awesome They way that she took Caleb by his Eyes ear forcing her help on him Caleb made me what to screamYou go girlNow the love interest in this story is so deep that I fell right into the rabbit hole I adored this characters and watching them fall in love with such animosity going round them left me reeling for Samara and Caleb s fight forach other "And Their Families Is Soo Good I "their families is soo good I that Ms Reed created the characters to be likable There wasn t an overdone amount of supernatural that left out the real life that they have These characters still do very day real stuff and THAT I loved Reading a story of the paranormal but not overriding the life s is greatSo you wanna read a story about a male succubus Read this one It contains real life situations laced with the right amount of supernatural that is gives you a great read Ok so this was definitely not a great book but it was xactly what I neededI honestly don t know if the writing was so forced or if the problem was the translation Because a lot was translated uite literally when it really doesn t work in german So I m thinking maybe the Sinner's Heart english original is better Anyway I got what I wanted and I had a lot if fun Before you askno not one vampire in sight I would say YAY but I m afraid my house might get burned down This is a fantastically fun YA paranormal that is a trulyxciting debut for this author Samara Marshall is fun ntertaining sarcastic and spends a great deal of her time watching her best friend Mia beat the heck out of her boyfriend Dougie In fact that s xactly what she s doing when our story opens sitting on the hood of a car downing a Big Gulp and watching the action Samara works inside Buncha Books at the Cuppa Joe coffee shop that s located in the back of the bookstore Nadine a polish Spirit of the Wolf exchange student is the manager and seriously funny Another co worker Only one to sense danger behind his smileBut Caleb's secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves Samara must take a risk that will change her life foreveror consume it.
