I really enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down. I also didn’t appreciate it when I was reading it and my eyes wouldn’t stay open allowing me to finish the book.
Ella is 18 years old and the daughter of a preacher living in a small town. She has had a very tough life. A victim of both physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her parents. Devon, her very gay and hot looking best friend, and Jessa, her brash hold nothing back speak her mind best friend, are the only friends she has and like family to her. They would do anything for each other. Ella appears to be a docile, head down, meek girl but everything changes when Jaxx, or Thor as she thinks of him, kicks in the church door one Sunday during service.
Jaxx has been looking for his soul mate for almost two centuries. He kicks in the church door looking for something. Then he sees her and stops he raises an eyebrow gives a smirk and her reaction is to flip him off and turn her back on him. He leaves the church with a laugh. Jaxx has found her his one true soul mate. The next day they meet at school. Within a day of his meeting Ella she finds out she’s adopted, gets kicked out of her house, learns that she’s a “True Witch”, and that Jaxx is her soul mate.
Ella has many questions about what she is. Jaxx brings her back to his place to meet his Uncle Seb and a historian. Seb is also a vampire. Seb has a surprise waiting at the house for both Ella and Jaxx when they arrive. Gavin is Ella’s twin brother and she just learned of him that night so you can imagine the surprise on her and Jaxx’s face when he’s at the house. Ella has much to learn about her powers. Besides learning exactly what her gifts are she has to learn how to control them. Hopefully this is something Jaxx, Gavin, and Seb can help her with cause they don’t know it yet but there’s a war coming and she needs to be ready.
This is a great summer read. There’s action, some danger, some VERY HOT sex scenes, and some real good laughs. Through Ella and her depth of feelings for the members of her family you are able to form a bond with the other characters and not just Ella and Jaxx. This is the first book in a series and I would HIGHLY recommend you going out and buying this book. You really won’t be disappointed. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.
I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite lines in the book. The reason for picking these two lines is because my reaction to them each had my husband going ok what just happened.
“Yes actually. Jessa told me that it was like shoving a cold hot dog through a key hole.”
“You wouldn’t bother knocking either if someone just tapped your ass like a juice box!”
