Riley's Secret (a Moon's Glow Novel)
By Christina Smith
Lovers of teen young adult fiction will totally gobble up Riley's Secret...
With its blossoming of young love, a cloak of darkness & mystery, a drop dead gorgeous honey & a hint of teenage drama... It really is a perfect YA novel.
I have to admit i didn't like megan to start with, it's not so much I hated her it's just after reading Riley's Curse I had some pretty hight expectations of the girl who would be good enough for such an amazing, gorgeous & caring guy.
once I got into the story a bit more, I started to quite like her, she was sweet, strong, responsible and caring.
But Then.. i started to dislike Nate, his character just seemed so different from the riley's curse the prequel, stalking a girl you like...Is creepy. then breaking in to said girl's friends house to jump in bed with her while she's asleep is extremely creepy! seriously....
.... Where'd the hot caring & not creepy guy go!
But seeing as it was written from a different POV I let it slip & towards the end I found myself falling back in love with him.
Christina has done a lovely job at writing Riley's Curse.
There were moments of utter giggling, moments where I was close to tears at the sheer tenderness shown between the characters & moments of disbelief because of the cold & emptiness shown in other characters.
It was a real mixed bag.
But like with any novel it wasn't all smooth sailing, there were moments were I couldn't help but roll my eyes at how clique it was, through out the start I felt like I was reading some boring sleep over club novel filled with high school politics & pillow fights, which thankfully slowly morphed into a wonderful ya paranormal romance novel I was more then happy to read.
Would I re-read it?
Would I recommend it?
If your into teen/young adult fiction...oh yes.
Would I read more in the series?
yes, probably to find out if they actually ever have sex! I have a dirty mind & I know it!...lol
