Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Kelsey Romano has always been one of the most popular girls at Concordia Prep. But after a disastrous breakup and her subsequent meltdown (um, destruction of school property, anyone?) she's kicked out of Con Prep and shipped off to Concordia High School, for good.

Seventeen-year-old Isaac Brandano has been kicked out of more prep schools than he can name. But now that his father's State Senate campaign is pushing a public school agenda, Isaac finds himself enrolled at Concordia High.

Kelsey and Isaac are destined to hate each other. And at first, they do. But when they are forced together on the creation of a new school club, sparks begin to fly. Then the club's critical event turns into chaos. Now Kelsey and Isaac must retrace their steps and figure out how and why everything got so got screwed up, who was to blame, and how they can move forward.

Add it: Goodreads

Synopsis: His touch was electric.
His eyes were magnetic.
His lips were a temptation....
But was he real?

After crashing her car on an empty highway, Shane is miraculously saved by Travis, a mysterious cowboy who walks out of nowhere. She is instantly attracted to him, and for the first time, she believes in “soul mates.” But Shane soon discovers that Travis is dead and that strict rules from the Underworld govern kindred spirits of different dimensions. Breaking these rules could destroy both their souls. And while Travis is almost impossible to resist, temptation proves to be the kindest enemy they encounter.

Can true love surpass the power of pure evil? Part love story, part supernatural thriller, this first book in the Kindred trilogy will leave readers lusting for more! 


The Thing About The Truth: Okay, I LOVE books like this. Where the characters hate each other and then grow to love each other then there's some huge twist and it's all like WTF and then theres *usually* a happy ending. Yep... I love those books :) 

The Temptation: TALK ABOUT ANGST. Oh yeah I love me some angstyness!! And that COVER oh my god... is the boy in the background hot or what?!?! I cannot wait to read this!

  5. I love the colours on the cover of The Temptation! Hahaha yes and of course, the hot boy! Super excited to read that and TRATR sounds SO good! Hate ----> Love relationships are the most fun to read about, I LOVE seeing how their feelings slowly change and oh, the sexual tension that burns :D

  6. I can't wait for The Thing About the Truth - I LOVE Lauren Banrholdt's books!

  7. I've never been too attracted to cowboys before but I just finished Unearthly and I'm reading Hallowed and I'll admit I have the HOTS for a cowboy named Tucker! So when I read "mysterious cowboy" in The Tempation, that got my attention!
