...and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand.
After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life.
For real this time
“Hunger gnawed at my stomach, but I was afraid someone would be in the kitchen again. So I found myself staring at the front door. Freedom seemed just a doorknob-turn away.
When I did open the door, freedom didn't wait — a half-naked Hayden did.”
I WILL finish this book today!
Great read by one of my favorite authors, Very sad that it's a stand alone book but what the heck, you take what is given.
I think this is her FIRST BOOK ever where the male character is not a total badass and I loved it! Don't get me wrong, I love badasses, but this just proves that she isn't one to follow a pattern. It makes her books interesting. Make them different.
I think Laurmentrout's signature thing when it comes to her books is that there is always passionate love in them. Weather it's teen, ya, NA or adult she always makes my heart melt with the love and adoration.
