Summary: He's persuasive, charming, and way too mysterious. And for Samara Marshall, her co-worker is everything she wants most--and everything she most fears. . . 

Samara Marshall is determined to make the summer before her senior year the best ever. Her plan: enjoy downtime with friends and work to save up cash for her dream car. Summer romance is not on her to-do list, but uncovering the truth about her flirtatious co-worker, Caleb Baker, is. From the peculiar glow to his eyes to the unfortunate events that befall the girls who pine after him, Samara is the only one to sense danger behind his smile. 

But Caleb's secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival. And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves, Samara must take a risk that will change her life forever. . .or consume it.

Review: I was honestly blown away by Living Violet. I really didn't think I was going to like it that much, but boy was I wrong.

It seemed like there was constant action and mystery around what was going on with Caleb. From the very beginning I was wondering, like Samara, if I could really trust him or not.

The characters were one of the things that made this story amazing. They felt like real people! At first I was wary and not too fond of Caleb, but he started to grow on me. This developed because his characters was developing like an actual person, not just a character in a book. It was like this for all o the characters, which were all funny and smart, and overall wonderful.

I'm kind of growing tired of paranormal books, but this one was a breath of fresh air. I've never read about "cambions" or anything like them, so it was nice to finally see something new in a usually predictable genre.

Living Violet was a great book and hopefully the beginning of a great series!
