At first, it wasn’t much of a kiss. My lips just brushed his, and when he didn’t move away, I pushed harder. *** seemed too stunned to do much of anything for a few seconds. But then he released my wrists and his hands slid up my arms.

I've already read this book and I have to say I really enjoyed it! Anyways,DON'T YOU JUST LOVE the cover!
When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.
Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.
A secret Kale will kill to protect

Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.
*EDIT= I DON'T HATE TWILIGHT! This is for people who do*
- I gulped and leaned back in my chair again as I tried to think straight. To remember all the reasons why kissing that curve where her neck and shoulder met would be a bad idea.
- “I can see why. And is that when you impress everyone with your manly snake-killing skills?” “Uh, no.” He twisted halfway toward me, his smile lopsided. “That’s when my dog Jake impresses everyone with his snake-killing skills, while I run off screaming like a girl and grab a shovel.”

Welcome to my stop for the second annual YASpooktacular, hosted by Frenzy of Noise and Wicked Awesome Books.
This year, there are three stories written by some of your favorite authors that will be posted throughout the week. Each story is a choose your adventure, where you get to decide what path to send the character down. Sometimes you live, sometimes you die, and sometimes you fall into a pit of no return.
There are also some TRICKS or TREATS scattered throughout the story, where you can enter to win prizes and get bonus points toward the prize packs. The prize pack for The Pond in the Forest will be up tomorrow! On Halloween day, the grand prize pack will be posted. You can click the banner above to see a full list of the YASpooktacular prize packs!
Christina Ferko didn’t start reading until her sister shoved (quite literally & rather forcefully) the Twilight books at her. Now she's read more books than she can count. Christina loves any good story but her passion in reading & writing is YA. When it came to writing, Christina was a late bloomer with that as well. She didn't start creating worlds & telling stories until her early twenties (she's 26 now--only one year away from her favorite number). Christina makes up for her lack of a childhood spent scribbling stories with an obsession for it now. You can frequently find her staring off into space or gesturing rather awkwardly (which is slightly embarrassing while in a coffee shop) with a computer in front of her as she works out scenes in her head.
You can find Christina on her blog where she talks about books, the one where she talks about writing and on twitter.
