Captivate Me
S.J. Pierce
Publication date: April 1st 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult

Captivate Me is Book One of The Captivated Series, a Young Adult Paranormal Romance

“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. 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 vying 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.

Mama Says:

I’m going to be brutally honest with you, so bear with me.  This book started out so cliché I almost didn’t want to finish it. But after maybe 18% or so, I started to realize things were going in a very different direction.  We’ve got mystery, suspsense, and coming of age on top of the paranormal romance and supernatural high school angle.  So if you start reading the book and think you can’t finish it, stick with it- you’ll be handsomely rewarded with an exciting story that takes Kat on a very interesting journey toward learning what is really going on with her dreams.  This is a clean read so it’s suitable for ages 14 and older.
3.5 stars

Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult

**spoilers for Book 1**

A fresh start – something Kat and Gabriel thought they would find when they left their pasts behind at Midland Pines High and moved to a compound for hybrids. Or at least safety from a witch seeking revenge. But now… that’s all changed. Now, thanks to a flirty hybrid hell-bent on winning Gabriel’s attention, the terrifying visions of another prophetic Gifted, and the strange and worrisome behavior of one of their closest friends, Kat finds herself fighting for things that had once come so easily, including her relationship with her soulmate. And now she’s afraid.

Recommended for readers 16 and up due to mature content.

Mama Says (non-spoiler review):

Things move even more quickly in the wake of the events of book 2.  The setting is more intense and less high school here, and the story moves in almost dystopian direction.  Though it’s still staunchly in the ya paranormal realm.  I liked this book quite a bit more than the first and didn’t have that first bit of hesitation to wade through.  As with many second in a series books, Fight for Me answers some questions from Captivate Me, but leaves you with more.  I will definitely be continuing this series and look forward to finding out what’s next for Kat!
4 stars
