Imagine having the power to view someone's past at the briefest touch of their skin.
During freshman year, seventeen-year-old Thea Scott developed the suckiest burden ever. At the slightest brush of a person’s skin, she’s forced to walk in their memories. She’d give anything to get rid of this uncontrollable ability. When breathtakingly gorgeous Cole Conway strolls through the auditorium doors and she faints, literally, he acts like he knows her secret. The last thing she wants is to end up in a lab with her brain in a jar, so she decides to use her ability to enter his memories.
Cole unveils out-of-this-world dangers she never imagined existed. Even worse, her own past is her greatest fear. The deeper she falls, the more turmoil and heartbreak she crashes into. Dreams of fitting in dissolve when she must protect herself from things far more terrifying than high school rumors.

What I loved about this book is the ‘twist’ on the modern day clicks in a high school. Thea is the commonly known ‘freak,’ once the second half of the popular group with her best friend Wynter. Now she can’t bear to be near people, let alone touch her.
Why? I hear you ask….or was that a memory in my head??
Well, if anyone touches her in any capacity she lives their memories, their secrets. they are thrust into her mind, causing, in some cases, a blackout. She can not literally bear to be touched by anyone, only her Aunt Kate has a vague idea of what is going on, then in walks Cole…
Cole Conway, the gorgeous new boy at school, and what does Thea do when she sees him… faint. Their lives become embroiled together as he knows who, and more importantly, what she is. Can he answer the questions she has been longing to ask all these years? Can he protect her? New dangers are now in her life and she has to learn to protect herself in new ways.
And who is the man with the piercing blue eyes from her
This book eases you in, helping you to understand Thea and her life she has to lead and then without knowing it. It ramps up the intensity, Thea’s powers and the new threat she had no clue about. All the while she has to try and maintain a ‘normal’ life with her friends and high school, a piece of cake no??
I am looking forward to the next instalment of this series…no news on it yet though

About Carly Marino
I love writing and reading about love. There’s nothing better than two characters finding each other in unusual situations and conquering all odds to be together. *Sigh* Regardless the genre – paranormal, contemporary, fantasy – if there’s romance—I wanna read it!
I was born in Hawai’i but grew up most of my life in the sticks of Michigan and the sunny beaches of Florida. After graduating high school, I return to my island ohana for college where I wrote my thesis on how to write a young adult book. (Oddly enough)
Wife, mother, dog owner, and author, my hat constantly changes but I love every minute of the hustle. Writing is my passion and the wonderful nagging voice in my head. I’m blessed to have amazing family and friends who’ve supported me from my first story, written in poor phonics and elementary chicken scratch.
