One stupid mistake.
SAMMY STEVENS was tragically orphaned at the age of nine and sent to live with a foster family in the town of Miakoda Falls. She’s bullied at school by the arrogant, selfish, one and only… KAI JORDAN.
Kai is your typical entitled teen who’s on the verge of attending University and having everything he ever wanted handed to him.But that all changes when he is involved in a car accident after a night of partying…He’s suddenly and painfully brought into the world of supernatural.
Kai turns to the last person he ever would’ve expected, Sammy, as he struggles with his new identity and watches the people closest to him move on. And he is forgotten.As Kai and Sammy grow closer, Kai must figure out a way to either stay human or risk being stuck forever, as a prisoner of his own body…
I 've struggled with this review. First off, I love the book cover, it draws you in without even reading the synopsis.The book does act as a standalone, even though it is part of a series, which is nice. It has a nice love story between Kai and Sammy built into it that showed potential and was very sweet. I also love the premise of the book and it has alot of potential, but in parts it fell flat for me. The characters come across very black and white without a lot of room for growth, which really disappointed me. I am really on the fence with this book, but am looking forward to seeing what else this author turns out.
