the Hurricane series
*see my review on GoodReads*
"This just didn’t happen to girls like me. This just didn’t happen to anyone."
hehe LOVED this book! I cant wait for the next one!!!! I loved the intro. It was creative, from a different point of view and I liked how I had to keep reading to find out who was speaking. Any book that begins with Damn is OK in my book!
"Damn. I never should have agreed to this. What is he thinking? Here we are in a piece of crap pickup truck on our way to sit outside of a supermarket to kidnap this girl. Damn. He’d better not be falling for her. Sure she’s cute, but I can’t think about that." Talk about an interesting opening to a novel!
Oh you know, Adriana is your average psychic teen who is kidnapped by two hotties from her school who have secrets of their own. I loved the setting of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina. The writing was beautiful and so were the descriptions especially when they returned to New Orleans after the Hurricane.
One more and then I'm done...
"She doesn’t even have shoes on” He was trying to reconcile something in his head while talking to Luke.
“In all the time you spent in that shack, you forgot to pack her shoes?” Luke asked rhetorically, shaking his head in both wonder and disappointment. “Look, we’re in the boonies. I am sure shoes are optional, as are a full set of teeth.”
hehe I love Luke! What I wouldn't do to be Adriana. I could totally imagine Hayden being in her house at this scene to get her things. what WAS he doing in there?
I enjoyed this book, but was also confused. It had a good plot, but at the beginning I was like "Um.. I thought this was supposed to be about a Hurricane. Am I reading the right book?" But then I read farther into it and figured out, that yes I was in fact reading the right book.
The plot was a little confusing. It seemed to jump from place to place with no real connection. One second it was talking about her being at school, and in the same paragraph she was at home trying to figure some things out. The bothered me, but it was still a good book.
Ana is a very strong female lead. I mean with her dad being a flake and leaving her to fend for herself in the middle of a hurricane and going off with his girlfriend. Then being kidnapped by the new kids in school, yeah not fun! She feels this strange connection with the new boy, Hayden and is scorned by his brother Luke. You figure out later why! I'm not into spoliery reviews!
Then there Hayden, the dark and mysterious new kid, who has a bi-polar attitude in my opinion. One minute he's saving Ana, from what, she has no idea. The next he's telling her that he can't be seen with her. Of course this would spark my interest with the kid, but it just pisses Ana off. Plus he kidnaps the girl and well, won't explain all the mysterious behavior going on!
All in all the book was just Okay, of course I am going to read the sequel if there is another one. I give this book a 39 out of 59 tacos! I want to thank Jenna Lynn Duncan for giving me the chance to read and review her book! It was my pleasure to read your book, and I hope to be given the chance to read another one of your books in the future.
