captivateme captivatemecoverBook & Author details:   Captivate Me by S.J. Pierce Publication date: April 1st 2014 Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult Synopsis: “My mom had always told me – when you meet “the one”, you’ll know; they’ll captivate your heart the moment you lay eyes on them. I had always wondered, though, if my mom’s words of wisdom were finite – if they applied to everyone. Maybe those who had found their one great love were the lucky few, and maybe the rest of us would have to settle for less than earth-shattering.” Seventeen-year-old Kat Walsh is a Gifted – a human with paranormal abilities. With her mom a former Angel and her dad a dream prophet, it’s always been in her genetic make-up to be extraordinary. But, unfortunately for her, the world can’t handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak – even the ones she thought were her closest friends. Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school – Levi. Everything feels normal again… or does it? Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she’s never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen – students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things fighting for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice – will she settle for ‘great’ Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across ‘amazing’? From the author of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles, comes a refreshingly different Young Adult series with plenty of love, suspense, and a new take on the Paranormal. Recommended for readers 16 and up due to mature content.   Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20484844-captivate-me Purchase: –Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Captivate-Me-Book-One-Captivated-ebook/dp/B00IYW8OWC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1395670157&sr=8-2&keywords=Captivate+Me –B&N: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/captivate-me-sj-pierce/1118909220?ean=2940045762076   —-

Review Kat Walsh knows she is different, in fact her parents have always been honest about who she is.  However her unusual talents have left her a target for people who do not understand her she is different in ways no one could understand.  With a fresh start at a school who acknowledges the the uniqueness of it’s student. Kat finds herself attached to a boy who should have her falling head over heels in love, however there is something that is holding Kat back. Without divulging too much, this story completely  fascinated me, I have not been this entranced since reading the House of Night series.  Kat is trying to be an average seventeen year old,  but sh is far from that.  I liked the pacing and the way the story revealed itself, it is one you pick up and try to guess what will happen next and keep reading to figure out if your guess actually becomes a reality. Wonderful story, hope there is a next one.   AUTHOR BIO: Susan James Pierce has a degree in Marketing Management, works fosjr a Fortune 500company in Atlanta, Georgia, and devotes her precious, spare time to writing Fantasy, Paranormal and Sci-fi novels.
