I was fascinated from the start with Lily Morgan and her special abilities. She can feel what everyone else is feeling, but she has developed, what she calls, a shield, that can block out the overwhelming and unwelcome sensations of the people that are all around her. She was doing well at school and coping with her gift until the day, Malakai Thomas, collides with her in the hall, and she falls and bangs her head. And suddenly her defence against her gift is no longer working. With her emotions in turmoil, this isn't the right time for her to fall head-over-heels in love with a football star, who until the day he knocked her over, had not noticed she was alive.

Malakai Thomas is one of the golden boys of the school. He is good-looking and popular. He the one others envy. He is the one all the girls swoon over. But he is not interested in cheerleaders or such. Ever since he first laid eyes on her, he has been drawn to the petite, pretty musician, who has the most beautiful eyes he has ever seen.

I loved this book. So much happens, it is not just about first love; it is a deep and an incredibly emotional read. I honestly, could not put this book down when I started to read it. The plot is so full of surprises that each page kept me guessing. I loved the characterisation of Lily and Malakai, the chemistry between the two was so believable and beautifully written. It really was a pleasure to read.

I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

So do yourself a favour and check this book out. You won't be disappointed. I Highly Recommend.

I really enjoyed this book. The writing style is easy to read and, for the most part, the story flow quickly and keeps the action moving. The characters are well-written and entertaining, the plot is laced with romance, suspense and an air of mystery that keeps you guessing as to what is really going on.
Lily's romance with Malakai is endearing- a football star following his heart and going after the girl in the marching band, despite his crowd's rejection of the idea. As a former marching band member, reading about football games and marching competitions tugged at the strings of my heart.
While, as an adult, it seems like their dependence on each other and reluctance to talk things out when things go wrong seems a little inflated, I fully remember being 17-18 years old and feeling like a boyfriend was the center of my universe and having doubts I was too scared to voice....In other words, this whole romance is totally believable to me and swept me into it completely.
The paranormal aspect was well written- I could feel what Lily felt as I read it. I was very intrigued by mean girl Zoe. It was pretty obvious to me that something out of the norm was going on with her and I was disappointed that that wasn't explored. I am hoping that it will be delved into in book 2 of this series- which I can't wait to read!
The ending was left open and left me begging for more. Great job. I recommend!

Format: Paperback
This was a hard one for me to rate. First off, I want to say I absolutely loved Martine Lewis' easy writing style. It is perfect for the YA audience this novel is aimed at and I would love to read more from this author. Unfortunately, there were a couple of things within the novel that annoyed me so much I just couldn't give this one five stars. The two main characters refused to talk to each other to sort out their problems, preferring instead to make huge assumptions about what the other might be feeling. I found this extremely frustrating to read. The other thing that annoyed me was Malakai constantly referring to Lily as "his" girl, who needed his protection - I'm not a feminist, but the idea that Lily couldn't get by without Malakai also annoyed me.

That said, these were plot issues that this reader didn't enjoy and even so, I'm giving this one four stars. Because the writing style was so good, I would imagine many readers will be able to look past these small issues and absolutely love this book. I would recommend this author to all lovers of young adult fiction.

Great for anyone who wants a drama teeenage romance story. This one is not a pure love story though, there is a slight paranormal angle to the storyline making it a definite must read for YA readers. The characters were well thought out and the author did a really good job of keeping you page turning.

Highly recommended read!
