Xpresso Tour - Strength, by Carrie Butler

Strength by Carrie Butler
Series: Mark of Nexus #1 
Publication: March 7th 2013 by Sapphire Star Publishing 

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period.

Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation--and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…

Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace's powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.

They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do--even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart.

I really enjoyed this book.  Of course coming from me I will start with the romance.  LOVED IT!  It wasn't unbelievable the way some YA books are.  It had all of the elements that make a great paranormal romance.  Also.....HOLY PIGS IN A BLANKET....I have fallen for yet another fictional character.  Why do you authors do this to me?!

The story was great.  Sometimes I think the YA Paranormal Romance genre is way too overdone.  Always the same damn thing...this one was different.  First off it was in a college setting and not in the usual high school one.  It also had great action, and was so well written and easy to read that I had a very difficult time putting it down.

All in all a great read, one I would highly recommend to any YA Paranormal Romance lover!  If this is you than you are in luck....we have a giveaway for you!  Make sure to enter, and let me know what you think!!

Carrie daydreamed her way through college—until they thrust a marketing degree into her hands, slapped a summa cum laude seal on the corner, and booted her out into a less-than-stellar job market. Instead of panicking at the prospect of unemployment, she used her Midwestern logic to steer into the skid and point her life in the direction she really wanted to go: writing out those daydreams.
