What is the book about?

It all starts when “Miss Popular” Brittany is paired up with badboy Mexican Alex. Soon they fall for each other but it is hard to have a relationship when everyone else is against it.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I loved the storyline and how there is so much emotion in the pages of this book. The author really transports you.

Who would you recommend it to?

Anyone who likes a good love story about forbidden love. It is a realistic read.

Aishlinn can see fairies. Not your garden-variety, sweet flower fairies. Fairies that walk unseen in the human world, beautiful, capricious, fierce. If they are feeling mischievious might tie your shoe laces together, or hide your socks. Yet, on a whim, they can be far more sinister and cruel. Aishlinn has always been able to see them, and so can her grandmother. She has impressed upon her some fundamental rules.

  1. Don’t ever attract their attention
  2. Don’t speak to invisible fairies
  3. Don’t stare at invisible fairies

If they ever found out that she could see them, they might put out her eyes, or something far worse. She lives her life on edge, trying not to acknowledge the fairies all around her. But, the rules are changing. She is being stalked by several fairies, and she finds out that the Summer King has set his sights on her.
