About the Book: Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.

As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves…even if that means betraying her own heart.

My Thoughts: Oh my goodness! Talk about starting things off with a bang! I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride just in the first two chapters! Ohmystars do I wish I could go in to more detail but that would spoil it for you. All I’ll say is that I was on the edge of my seat and it really set the tone for the book. 

Aura and Zachary are separated for much of the book. We really get to see Aura step it up and fight for what she believes in. And when they are finally reunited?!? Can we say steamy?!?! I loved it! 

Of course the DMP is as shady as ever. I liked learning more about the organization and their questionable actions. I’m a sucker for evil cooperations/government agencies! I so enjoy seeing the “little guy” working to overthrow them. 

I love it when a series I adore has a fabulous ending! Shine really wrapped up everything I needed to know while still leaving room for me to imagine the future for the characters I loved. I was just so very satisfied by this book and the series finale. 

Hey! That’s Jeri Smith-Ready!

I almost forgot!! Simon & Schuster sent me a paperback copy of Shine! However, since my other two books in the series are hardcover I pre-ordered Shine 🙂 Sooooo, that means a giveaway for you!
