I received this one from the author some weeks ago. I hope you enjoy it.
DESTINY UNHINGED by Kimber Shook.
VANESSA anxiously waits for her birthday, a boyfriend and some much needed excitement in her dull and boring life.
She soon finds herself torn between two guys. Well, I guess that is what she would call them, even though one is a dead Alien King.
MAX, a dead alien who is trapped in limbo between two worlds and longs for Vanessa, his destiny, to help him home and become his Queen. He offers her his world, his heart and his future.
TOBY, a good looking guy who shows an interest and a desire to be with Vanessa, has confessed that he too has a destiny that he's meant to be with another. However, it’s a destiny he doesn’t want.
The connection that Vanessa has with Max is strong but the desire she has for Toby may be even stronger.
Shall she accept what Destiny has in store for her or find a way to escape to find one all on her own?
MY REVIEW:My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My first thought: What just happened? Now I have to wait until the next book is released?
Destiny Unhinged presents us Vanessa, a regular girl about to turn seventeen, who is fighting between two guys. A book that presents us another world and little sneak picks from something else.
The whole story moves extremely fast, in just a few pages we move from a single girl with a boring life, to a girl meeting an alien king and a really hot guy. The plot is well described as well as the characters and the background which is easy to understand.
Vanessa is a nice character, one you can relate to at some levels, with a funny mind and quite an interesting family (mother and grandmother). However, at some point she is described like a church girl but this fact is left aside in the story. Maybe it´s not that important but it was something I noticed. Apart from that, she is a great character and we see her evolve and become a strong woman.
Then we have Max and Toby. They are two sexy guys with some differences and some things in common. For example they both are REALLY POSSESSIVE, some of their dialogues are romantic and sweet, but at some point I didn’t like neither of them because they didn’t care what Vanessa wanted and with their speech of “I’ll do anything to protect you”, they didn’t take Vanessa’s feeling in consideration. Luckily by the end of the book we can see their true personalities and Toby can redeem himself.
Something that worth be mentioned is that a lot of things are revealed such as Vanessa past and her family heritage. But… What about Toby and his family? There´re a lot of things to resolve in the next book and I hope to find some answers in it.
Overall a good read, with some high points where you can´t stop reading and an ending that leaves you speechless and waiting for the second book.
