FALLING UNDER BK #1
GENRE: YA PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Theia Alderson has
always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity
Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her
school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in
As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons
her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia
knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is
stronger than her fear.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.
I so wanted to love this book cause I've heard good things, but looks like I will be settling for the eh, it was okay.
There was really nothing original in Falling Under except male lead is half-human, half-demon. It's basically the same old YA paranormal romance, which really disappointed me. Don't get me wrong, the story had it's moments, but overall, it was just--okay.
One thing that really rubbed me the wrong way was there were references to Twilight in the story. I don't know when writers are going to learn to stay away from referencing Twilight!
I did like the comradery between Theia, Amelia, and Donny. These girls are great together.
