Healing Souls eLlis itven possible to love aNope Not gonna tell guys and gals This is such a fun read that I m going to leave it all up to you to find out Caleb s secret Being the first book in this new series there is far to come but my advice is that you must definitely give this one a shotUntil Next TimeAmy I recently participated in a giveaway and won this book as a result It s a few years old but I figured What the heck I ll read and review it anyways Interesting Seductive Surrender enough I actually came across this book back in 2012 when I was looking for something new to read and for reasons unknown or forgotten I decided not to buy and read it It s a decision I regret as this book wasn t half badDougie s body went stiff and on high alert Did he try somethingI turned to him Relax He hasn t done anything Don t strain yourself I d hate to have you bust some of your stitchesI think what I liked most about this book was the diverse cultural backgrounds of the lead characters I seldom see paranormal romance stories that have a protagonist who is of a differentthnicity other than Caucasian in addition to a story that is well written and lacks the Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, ever present cheese fest so many novels of the romance genre possessChad chad noun A young Anglo American malewith athletic build typically named Chad who is very popular with the opposite sex and usually the alpha male of a social group Chad ate often found in fraternities tailgate parties sportingvents and anywhere in the vicinity of a light beer kegger Staple attire consists of the following baseball cap wife beater undershirt or T shirt with ironic slogan cargo shorts and leather sandals Prone to utter inappropriate phrases like What s up bro or Yo dogI m a sucker for great humor and some witty remarks For some reason I find that it ndears the characters to me Sam our POV character and heroine seems to be the heavyweight champion in that department Samara or Sam comes from a mixed parentage I disliked her constant complaints of her thnicity there s nothing unpleasant than reading from the point of view of a character who hates herhimself She clearly has some racial programming going on But it was great to see Sam be of a challenge and not immediately fall at Caleb s feet and profess her undying love like some love sick puppy Despite Caleb our hero and Sam s love interest being a bit supernatural he s not your stereotypical guy He s not the uber hot dark and brooding dude like you ll see in Vampire Diaries or God forbid Twilight but that is probably an unfair comparison as they are vampires and Caleb is something lse ntirely Never the less he is still a really cool guyFor some reason I though of that Valtrex commercial where the couple skips along the beach despite the fact that one of them has a highly contagious incurable disease I imagined Caleb and me in that situationWe re holding hands and he looks at the camera an have a demonic parasiteAnd I don t I say with a smile Nadine is the secondary character and also Sam s best friend who surprisingly has something suspiciously strange about heryou ll have to read to find out I will say that Nadine naming her pet Lilith garnered a serious head shake and side ye from me My first reaction was to say really how apt that name isDo I look like a Happy Meal to you He s not feeding off me SamI really do wish I had read this before but it is what it is Decent writing and some interesting plot twists I might read the next book the series so

Love indulged the masochist Truer words have never been spoken if I do say so myself It s a philosophy that has kept me sane for as long as I can remember and helped me survive the weirdest summer of my life On the flip side it s very ntertaining what love will make people do It s a great way to spend your lunch breakThis wry and witty observation opens up the amazing first novel by Jaime Reed Living Violet and xplains why it deserves than a measly five stars Samara Marshall the narrator and author of the above xcerpt is the kind of heroine many of us who love YA and who miss the intelligent and take charge type have sorely missed The YA genre seems to have gone out of its way to turn the clock back on strong and self sufficient heroines opting instead for weak vacillating and co dependent girls who have no reason to xist save as a foil for the attendant mysterious hawt boy du jour Thankfully Samara is smart funny wry and tough as all get out Her behavior bears this observation out Samara speaks her mind yet sometimes overanalyzes things Whenever she s uncomfortable or trying to be funny she tends to speak Elizabethan uoting Shakespeare so cool She has goals beyond becoming the love interest of the mysterious hawt boy stalker du jour She also has a circle of uirky friends who actually look like the rest of the world For Samara it s summer which means days spent working at Buncha Books saving up for a new car babysitting for her demon step siblings dealing with her single mother who s jumping into the dating pool once again while scaring Samara and her friends to death with Dateline pisodes about stalkers and predators while also watching best friend Mia and her boyfriend Dougie suare off yet again in another lover s uarrel For Samara love is just not worth all the attendant drama though she gets a huge kick out of observing what she and a few others consider better than reality televisionOf course such an idyllic summer comes to a screeching halt with the introduction of the mysteriously violet yed Caleb Baker an somewhat shaggy mo boy with an almost unhealthy sugar kick and a knack for women throwing themselves at him for no good reason Samara is totally put off by his weirdness and it certainly doesn t help matters when she catches him lip locking a girl in the magazine aisle It also doesn t help matters when she notices his violet yes glowing and some kind of rays coming from his fingers Now this is the moment most authors in this genre toss out all good sense and throw their heroines under the bus Suddenly Snowflakes on the Sea everything that was good about the heroine goes to hell and it suddenly becomes all about the mysterious hot boy du jour Not Samara After a date or two and some very scary happenings centered around Caleb she realizes in spite of his arrogance his sweet tooth and the fact that women tend to have heart attacks after kissing him that she likes him I often wondered why girls were attracted to dangerous mysterious men The answer was simple It sxciting and provactive They re constantly on Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy edge nothing sver boring and danger is a turn on Yes I can get behind this but again Samara doesn t lose all common sense When her well ordered world starts running amok she doesn t get all weepy and "dependent upon hot guy du jour to save her life Samara doesn t get mad She "upon hot guy du jour to save her life Samara doesn t get mad She mad AND ven Outside of Samara one of the most ngaging characters was Nadine a Polish xchange student too beautiful for words but who nursed a definite streak of sarcasm You know those t shirts that read Sarcasm Just One of the Many Services I Offer I could asily Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival envison her wearing one I hate those Elmo goth kids she griped What self respecting sociopath drinks chai anyway What do they know about real torment Let them survive a concentration camp and then they can complainIt s calledmo I corrected her And your grandparents didn t Love 2.0 (A Cates Brothers Book, even get to the camp before the US troops came inNadine moved to the back counter and checked the timers on the coffeepots It s still torment And if you saymo I say Elmo because they are The Fix eually childishOkay so I haven t said much about Caleb That s not because he s not likeable and sympathetic He is Something about him goes above and beyond that mysterious hawt boy stalker du jour and it s not his paranormal origins Even without them he s still a fully fleshed character He s 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 nough 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 the ngine of her car to keep her from harmIn spite of this being a paranormal YA romance Ms Reed the ngine of her car to keep her from harmIn spite of this being a paranormal YA romance Ms Reed 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 real in spite of the paranormal lements 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 Samara Marshall is your girl and Living Violet is the book Come on Ms Reed hurry up with volume 2
