GRAB A STORM WITHIN –TEENAGE ANGST GOES TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

This book is intended for mature teens and young adults. Strong language and minor sexual content.

There’s something dark lurking in the dreams of the students at Calvary High.

AUBRIE MARSHALL thought his last year of High School would be filled with memories to last him a lifetime. Instead, he’s learning his friends are his only salvation, the decisions he has to make could destroy everything he’s ever known, and the only solution lies within him.

MAKAYLA QUINN just wanted to get through her senior year without ‘guy drama’ and to mend things with Aubrie, her best friend. Believing he was her soul mate she’s now put to the test by another love interest fighting for her attention. With the two boys confusing her every step of the way…

Can she figure things out or will she lose them both? Will they be able to weather the storms or will they lose the battle with the darkness lurking from within?

A REVIEW

A book you will not want to put down!, June 3, 2016
By Becca Moree
This review is from: A Storm Within (Eternal Bonds Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
When I first heard about A Storm Within I was pretty well hooked. The premise for this book is so unique and fun! I’m not normally big on teen books, not sure why…I guess it’s just not my thing. However, I knew I was going to be reading this one! While the characters constantly switching attitudes and repeated cheating drove me mad…it was accurate. It was the life of a teen. It was real.

These characters are developed so beautifully that after only a few chapters I felt like I knew them. I may not exactly like them…I mean come on who really likes a cheater? but I knew who they were, I knew what they wanted, I even knew what their fears were. Put simply: they are good characters. I ADORE a book that can drag me in so deep that I have such strong feelings and reactions to the characters! Trust me when I say that C. Tuttle pulled that off and more. I spent the majority of this book screaming at my kindle trying to figure out what in the world these characters were thinking! The relationship between Brie and Kayla is breath-taking….and annoying as crap! If you two love each other so much…well stop being douches to one another dang it!! It’s not that hard I promise!

(See what I mean about getting emotional over the characters! I felt like I was back in high school standing between two of my friends that were constantly making bad choices when it came to their relationship.)

Okay..moving on from my love-hate relationship with the characters. All you need to know is that they are extremely well developed, have wonderfully individual voices that let you know who each one is and what their personalities are…basically these characters are REAL! They come across as someone you may have gone to school with and just didn’t know.

The story line is epic! What these teens go through is amazing and hard to explain without ruining all of the wonderful surprises. I will warn you, this isn’t a book that gives it all away in the beginning. You spend most of the book wondering what in the world is going on, why things are happening and who is responsible. The end is one hell of a cliff hanger that had me wanting to yell and scream and demand that I know what is going on right this instant! But it is worth it. Being left wondering is the sweetest kind of torture imaginable!

A Storm Within has it all: romance, action, humor, mystery and even a little bit of horror at times. The balance is perfect. The plot flow is smooth and addicting. The characters are realistic and relatable. What more do you need to know?

But it! Buy it right NOW!! You won’t regret it!

Now I just have to sit here and wait oh so patiently (haha yeah nope not at all) for the next book in the series so that I can find out what in the world happens next!

STARK RESOLUTION IT ALL COMES TOGETHER IN THIS EXCITING FINALE TO THE STARK TRILOGY

Actions have consequences. In the blink of an eye everything you have held dear, everything you have taken for granted… can vanish.
Lub dub … Lub dub… when you are taking out a target at 800 meters every part of your body slows. Complete control is mandatory. Muscle memory takes over. Action and reaction are instinctual. But what if something is off? The little voice in your head screaming STOP!
The moment Owen Stark’s finger squeezed the trigger all hell broke loose. The deadly round traveled at 2,550 feet per second straight into his target. As she fell, her identity became as evident as the growing crimson stain on her chest. The world fell silent. Despite the chaos around him, Stark could hear nothing but the pounding of his heart and the screaming inside his head. For the love of God woman, please GET UP! He begged over and over, but the blue heap of fabric that shrouded Kira Riley did not move.
All his training, everything he had spent the last decade preparing for came down to this moment. Faced with desperate circumstances, Owen Stark must make the impossible choice between the safety of his team and the chance to save the love of his life. When the last tear has fallen, and those lost are laid to rest, will he be able to open his heart and live again, or will the nightmares drag him to an unthinkable resolution?
Sometimes, when the sacrifice is too great to bear, Love finds a way to bring you home.

STARK RESOLUTION
THIS WAS THE FINALE I WAS WAITING FOR. WHO SAYS HAPPILY E VER AV\FTER DOESN’T HAPPEN? THIS IS A MOVING STORY OF TWO PEOPLE WHO NEARLY LOST EACH OTHER BUT GET A SECOND CHANCE. I SPENT THE WHOLE TIME ROOTING FOR KIRA AND OWEN AND PRAYING FOR REVENGE AGAINST THE “SIMONEBITCH” THE SUSPENSE WAS ENTHRALLING AND THE PLOT AS FAST AS THE FIRST TWO BOOKS. I GIVE THIS 5 STARS AS A GREAT WAY TO END A TRILOGY. KUDOS TO CD BRADLEY!!!

Melinda finds out about the supernatural world in an unexpected way, can you say vampire bite? Colin is a halfbreed wolf/witch who is there to protect her. These two are amazing together. I love her snarky, spunky attitude. The bad guys won’t stand a chance but can it work out between these two? I definitely enjoyed reading this and finding out!!
