Saving Angel by J.L. Weil
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Twilight. except so much more fun.
Angel and her mom just moved to the middle of nowhere, Illinois to escape her alcoholic dad and get a new start. Angel isn't too worried because all she needs is her video games. CoD, Skyrim, etc. Until she meets her girlie girl next door neighbor Lexi who all but jumps on the chance to be friends with Angel. Which is kinda nice except for her "douchbag" cousin Chase who drives Angel crazy. They are literally at each other's throat at every opportunity. Too bad he's insanely sexy and has a nice butt.
White Raven by J.L. Weil
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Received a copy via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
After the death of her beloved mother, Piper and her younger brother have been shipped off by heard dead-beat dad to live with her mysterious rich grandmother on Raven Hallow. Piper is determined to make her summer as miserable and sucky as possible. Or so was the plan until she met zoe and her her sexy, devil may-care brother Zane Hunter. There is something strange about Zane, however, aside from the electric passion they share(read as: insta-love). They've got their work cut out for them when Piper's destiny ends up being much larger and more important than she could have ever imagined.
Insta-love. god I hate it. soulmates, yes I don't mind that plot. But I really get a stick up my butt when "soulmate" is the reason they fall in love. The only reason I let it slide is becausee their banter is hilarious and this new mythology is fairly interesting.
