A sweet, mysterious teen romance with a refreshing fantasy twist.
California teen Sadie James thinks her life couldn’t get any better. She has great friends, an energetic mother she adores, and the beach practically in her own backyard. But her carefree life is turned upside down when she’s rescued by a mysterious and strangely familiar boy who won’t even tell her his name. Each time the boy appears, Sadie’s unexplainable attraction to him deepens along with her need to unravel his secrets.
The boy is there to protect her, but as wonderful and exciting as it might be to have an irresistible boy with crystal green eyes protecting her every move, every minute of the day…why does Sadie need one? As Sadie finds answers, she realizes her life isn’t as perfect as she thought. Not only is she caught in a world of dangerous secret agents she never knew existed, but it turns out her true identity may be the greatest secret of all.
What made me want to read this book was the book’s description. It hooked me because it sounded different from your typical YA paranormal romances out on the market. I am so happy that I picked up this book because from the moment I started I was drawn into the story and I couldn’t seem to put it down.
In Deep Blue Secret you are introduced to Sadie a seemingly normal teenage girl. She is pretty, popular and everything seems to be going well in her world until she meets a mysterious boy name Rayne, who happens to have the same green eyes that she has been constantly dreaming about. Suddenly her seemingly normal life turns into a not so normal one. Sadie is then thrown into a world she never knew existed and finds out the truth about herself.
What I loved most about this book was the interesting concept that author Christie Anderson created. With so many YA paranormal romances out there, it is great to see one that is uniquely it’s own. I don’t want to spoil the whole plot for, but I will say that there really is nothing else out there like it. There are no vampires, werewolves or mermaids in this one.
I also really loved the characters. They were all very relatable and down to earth. Sadie acts like a teenager which I really enjoyed. Her character didn’t feel forced or too cliched. Rayne is your swoon worthy love interest and I love the attraction and bond that you feel between him and Sadie. I would let Rayne be my protector any day 🙂
If you are looking for a great YA paranormal romance that different from the rest then Deep Blue Secret is certainly for you! I loved it! I give 5/5 stars.
I moved near him and his hand guided me in front of the bench, but I turned to face him instead of sitting down. He immediately shifted back, pulling slightly away. I wasn’t sure if it was the bump on my head suddenly clouding my thoughts, or the romance of being swept away and rescued by a gorgeous, mysterious boy, or this little ache in my heart of forgotten memories and dreams, but something deep inside me drew me towards him.
I wanted to reach out and hold him, but I held the feelings back, unsure if I should act on them. Instead, I stood there unmoving, still gazing up at him. He was tall compared to most high school boys I knew. I searched his face for any sign of reciprocation and moved closer. This time he didn’t move away.
“Thank you again,” I said softly, looking up at him through my lashes.
There was a long, heavy pause as I waited breathlessly for his response. His glowing eyes met mine, and their radiance hypnotized me. I could see nothing else.
Then I felt it again, the unexplainable connection between us. Time slowed around us like a force field pulling us together. I had no desire to resist it; I let the feelings draw me in, and I inched forward, wishing for his lips on mine. His hand lifted gently to my waist, sending a thrill through me in every direction. Never before had I felt the desire to kiss someone so fervently, the divine first kiss I had always dreamed of.
There was no trace of resistance left on his face. He leaned into me and my heart raced. Our faces grew slowly together as I looked from his dazzling eyes to his inviting lips.
