S.J. Pierce Blog
Captivate Me: 
Written by S.J. Pierce. Publication date: April 1st 2014. 281 Pages. Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult. Purchase your copy today Amazon / B&N 

Captivate Me Synopsis: "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.

My Thoughts: Draws you in from the very beginning!! I can't get enough I loved this book! Kat, the leading lady, is accepted to a school for the gifted and after being shunned at her old school this place is like a breath of fresh air for her. Finally able to be her true self Kat immediately make friends and is quick to steal the heart of a guy named Levi. Everything seems to be falling into place until she meets Gabriel. Torn between two great guys and discovering some pretty earth shattering news Kat has a lot to figure out. 

Great plot kept me entertained the whole time and I loved each and every character! I could not believe who turned out to be the villain! I was so entrap by the story I finished it in about 24 hours. The author did an amazing job with a unique fantasy twist and surprising ending, now time to start reading Iris. 

Iris(The Captivated Series 1.5):
Written by S.J. Pierce. Publication date: September 1st, 2014. Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult. Purchase your copy today Amazon 

Iris Synopsis: Set before the events in Book One of the Captivated Series, "Iris" explores the depths of family bonds, new bonds, and the lengths a person would go to save the life of a dying sibling. In this novella, get to know Iris and her two sisters more intimately, as well as Gabriel, the first angel-human hybrid who agrees to live under her protection.

My Thoughts: I have always loved Novellas and how they give you a more in depth story into it's characters. Very interesting read but pretty slow plot after reading Captivate Me. I loved getting to know more about Iris and her sisters and discovering what makes her who she is. Still, it's hard for me to feel bad for her and her sisters and I'm glad Captivate Me ended the way it did. It should be interesting to see what Lilliana bring to the table in the next book after the way Captivate Me ended. I honestly can't wait for the second book in the series Fight for Me to release spring of 2015.
