At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother's path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.
To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she's met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren't meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?
Nissa is being sent on her first mission as a Fairy Godmother to help Vicky regain her confidence. Vicky is a bit of a loner because she has two boys that have been picking on her all of high school. Nissa befriends Vicky and helps her learn to stand up for herself. Then she meets Vicky's brother and is instantly drawn to him. She gets tingly signs that he is her mate. But for Nissa to be fated to him she must ask permission and would have to leave her family forever.
Nissa hasn't been in the human realm much so she is humorous on her first mission. She is used to the fairy realm so she does a few odd things like wants to just sleep on a pile of twigs when they go camping. Nissa is very sweet though and determined to help people. That is why she became a Fairy Godmother after all. Nissa becomes attached to Vicky and Levi really fast and I knew she would have trouble leaving them after her assignment. I did think she completed her assignment rather easily but I guess it was her first one so maybe they gave her a simple one.
Levi is in college and at first doesn't think it would be a good idea to date Nissa who is pretending to be a high school senior but is really 900 years old. He was a very sweet guy. I found their relationship a little bit fast but I guess with the aspect of being fated it made sense. Nissa gets all the signs a fairy receives when she meets the one. It is usually never a human so this scares Nissa. She has to work up a lot of courage to go to the Fates and ask if she can be with Levi. If they deny her she will never be able to see him again but if they approve it then she can never go back to her fairy family. Very difficult choice.
This was a really cute and fast read. It was a light read I enjoyed. I love ABC Family and Disney made for TV movies and this felt exactly like one of those. A really sweet fairytale romance and adventure that still had some lessons about bullying and being proud of yourself.
"You make me feel so many things, Nissa. I don't know what I'm going to do with you." "What do you want to do with me?" His eyes smoldered and he looked at me intently. "Sometimes I wonder if you understand what you're saying, or if you are truly so innocent you have no guise." "The waiting is the hardest part. I'm so happy that you came to find me, so I can kiss you and touch you and tell you I love you one last time."

truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly
consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just
for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
Why I'm Waiting? Gorgeous cover and human falling in love with an alien that has ulterior motives for her planet?!!! 2014! :-( Sadly we have a long wait but it sounds great! I was such a huge Roswell fan so I still love anything alien.
The only one I have read so far is Wedding Night and while I love Sophie Kinsella it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. I just read Cinder and Partials so I had to immediately get my hands on the sequels.
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.
Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
I tried to read this book when it first came out and just couldn't get into so I gave the audio a try. Great narrators. It always takes me a little while to get used to their voices but they both did a great job as Puck and Sean. Although the narrator for Sean was kind of funny when he was speaking Puck's lines during his chapters. Each person switched off for the two POVs. I also loved that at the end of the book Maggie Stiefvater speaks about the book and how her idea developed. Gave me a greater understanding of the book.
Sean Kendrick witnessed his father murdered during the Scorpio Races by a Capiliska. He said he will never hesitate like that and he never does. He has won 4 races with his horse Corr. Sean is the water horse whisperer. Everyone on the island is so rude to him but as soon as they have a problem with a horse they go screaming for his help. Sean is seriously badass with the horses. Even though they murdered his dad, he takes control of crazy situations. A horse will be murdering someone and he just steps in and fixes things. He also truly truly LOVES his horse. Corr is his world. If he wins this race he gets the chance to buy her.
Puck Connelly needs to win the race in order to keep her house. Her brother is leaving for the mainland. The island of Thesby is known for the races. In November you stay away from the ocean. The horses just come out of the water and gobble people up! Puck decides to enter because she desperatly needs the money and uses it as an excuse for her brother to stay. Although she uses her island horse and not a water horse! She meets Sean and a friendship begins and Sean trains her. It was a bit of a slow beginning. I love the details of the island.
I think part of my disappointment was I went into this expecting more action and romance. The romance is very slow and subtle. I do love a good buildup but it just lacked a bit of spark I needed. When they finally got to the race it was amazing! I expected the race to be longer and a bigger part of the book. It was quick. Although I was surprised how much Sean protected and helped Puck. They
grew close but not that close. If it was me I would have been just winning
that race and not looking back for Puck but they both were so worried
about each other. Cute but maybe not the best strategy LOL Though I think it worked out well. I kind of wanted an epilogue though. I've been getting spoiled by those and I like to see where the characters go. The ending was still gorgeous!
"I say, 'I will not be your weakness, Sean Kendrick.'
Now he looks at me. He says, very softly, 'It's late for that, Puck."
"I hear laughter and someone asks if I need help, not in a nice way. I snarl, "What I need is for your mother to have thought a little harder nine months before your birthday."
"Sean reaches between us and slides a thin bracelet of red ribbons over my free hand. Lifting my arm, he presses his lips against the inside of my wrist. I'm utterly still; I feel my pulse tap several times against his lips, and then he releases my hand.
"For luck," he says. He takes Dove's lead from me.
"Sean," I say, and he turns. I take his chin and kiss his lips, hard. I'm reminded, all of a sudden, of that first day on the beach, when I pulled his head from the water.
"For luck," I say to his startled face.
"Does anyone ask you why you stay, Sean Kendrick?"
"And why do you?"
"The sky and the sand and the sea and Corr."

race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times
bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.
Why I'm Waiting? Always excited for more Adrian Ivashkov! Plus we finally get his POV! I am soooooooooooooo excited to get inside my Adrian's head. Honestly guys I don't know what I am going to do when this series ends. I will be crushed to have to live without Adrian Ivashkov in my life!
When your past catches up, it's time to stop running. Jake
Mathews messed up yet again— but this time his misstep lands him in the
hospital. He wakes up to find the girl of his dreams and the memory of
having his deepest secret revealed. Emily Taylor needs a break.
She's been working double shifts as a nurse just to pay the bills while
trying to heal a broken heart. The last thing she needs is to fall for a
patient. Strapped with community service and the knowledge that
he's disappointed everyone in his life, Jake is determined not to let
Emily slip through his fingers. Emily wants Jake, but can she really
open herself up to heartache again?
Jake is my favorite Clayton Falls guy so I was very excited for his book and was not disappointed. Jake finally fesses up to some of his past wrong doings to his brother, Ben and his wife Molly. Upset over the whole event he heads to a bar, gets drunk, then crashes his car on the ride home. This mistakes leads him to realizing he needs to make some changes in his life. As does the hot nurse he meets and begins to date.
Jake is very charming so of course even in the hospital I could believe he would pick up a girl. LOL Loved the jokes about it throughout the book as well. I love Jake's humor and even his ego but I've always thought he was a good guy and he proves it well in this book. He is still young and kind of wild but he steps up to the challenge of community service and to being a great guy for Emily. Emily is very hardworking and has serious responsibilities so she is not sure if Jake could even be more than a short fling. Jake did a great job of being there for Emily and showing his responsible side.
Sometimes mistakes help people make changes and so they can be a good thing. Jake's community service leads him to a new job he enjoys and gets him to stop drinking. Also love that Ben and Molly as well as Becca and Gavin from previous books make appearances again. It was nice to know that Jake and Becca were still friends because I enjoyed their friendship during Becca's book. Love the romance and journeys the characters take in this series. Hoping that maybe Emily and Jake's friends, Mel and Cole, might get their own book next?! Would love to see the series continue as I've really enjoyed all three books and couples so far.
"I'm sure that was a pity number, but I don't care. I'm going to heal better now that I know I'll see you again."
"Won't I seem desperate if I say yes?"
"I already sound desperate. Why not join the club?"
"I thought you weren't free this week."
"Yeah, well...some time opened up."
"I knew I was a good kisser..."
There are plenty of less complicated girl out there. Have fun. I don't want uncomplicated. I want you.
"I've never met anyone like you before. I've never been with a girl I couldn't get enough of. You make my heart race, you make me feel out of control, and I love every second of it."
