Recenzie/Review MESMERIZED by Julia Crane & Talia Jager


Seventeen-year-old succubus Lily Anderson can’t have a normal life: She isn't allowed a boyfriend, she has no friends, and school is just one mess-up after another.

Lily’s parents send her away to the prestigious Emerson Academy. It doesn’t appear to be any different from the others. That is, until she meets her roommate, Hannah, and a blue-eyed boy named Jake.

Lily makes an almost deadly mistake, and Jake has a mysterious past that has come back to haunt him. Together, they must go on the run from things neither of them understand in order to save the people they love—and each other. But, Jake’s foe is more dangerous than they realized, and it will take the help of friends and family to save the man Lily loves.

She must learn to use her powers for good before it’s too late.

MY OPINION

I received this book from author Julia Crane, in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Julia.

"Mesmerized" is the first book with succubus that I read. I can tell you that I liked even more than I expected. It was an easy reading, but sometimes, emotional, managing to snatch a few tears.

I liked that although Lily is condemned to a difficult life because of her condition, and seems to be resigned with this, meets Jake, a simple human, but special than everyone else. From this meeting, Lily's world is radically changing, and her love story with Jake, meets an unexpected obstacle.

I liked the book so much that I could not leave it. I was curious to see how it's all over, and I was happy with the ending, and the entire action. Just sometimes I would have liked that action be developed.
This, and that was over too quickly, are the weaknesses of the book, from my point of view. If you want a easy reading, but thrilling and exciting at the same time, I recommend you this book.

MY RATING: 4/5

PAREREA MEA

Am primit aceasta carte de la autoarea Julia Crane, in schimbul unei opinii sincere. Multumesc Julia.

"Mesmerized" este prima carte cu sucubi pe care o citesc. Pot sa va spun ca mi-a placut mult, chiar mai mult decat ma asteptam. A fost o lectura usoara, dar pe alocuri, emotionanta, reusind sa-mi smulga cateva lacrimi.

Mi-a placut ca, desi Lily este condamnata la o viata dificila din cauza conditiei ei de sucub, si pare sa se resemneze cu lucrul asta, il intalneste pe Jake, un simplu om, dar mai special decat toti ceilalti.

De la aceasta intalnire, lumea lui Lily se schimba radical, iar povestea ei de dragoste cu Jake, intalneste un obstacol neasteptat. 

Cartea mi-a placut atat de mult, incat nu m-am putut dezlipi de ea. Am fost curioasa sa vad cum se va termina totul, si am fost multumita de sfarsit, si de intreaga actiune. Doar pe alocuri mi-ar fi placut ca actiunea sa fie mai desfasurata.
Asta, si faptul ca s-a terminat prea repede, sunt punctele slabe ale cartii, din punctul meu de vedere.
Daca vreti o lectura usoara, dar palpitanta si emotionanta in acelasi timp, va recomand aceasta carte.

NOTA: 4/5

imi place descrierea cartii.
dupa ce am citit recenzia cred ca o alta coperta s-ar fi potrivit.

@Cristinab, sa stii ca e chiar mai potrivita decat crezi. Asa ma gandeam si eu la inceput, dar citind-o, mi-am dat seama ca e perfecta. Poate doar culorile ar fi trebuit sa fie mai vi putin...
