VBT: Kiss of Fire by Rebecca Ethington ~ review
Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.
The scar is the reason she is being hunted.
If only she knew that she was.
If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.
Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.

I thought this book was riveting. Icouldn't put it down and even after I was done reading it, I was still thinking about it. :-) It is a YA book and is appropriate for readers of any age. :-)
Joclyn has been in her own world since she was bitten by something when she was five. That bite drove her father away and broke her mom's heart. She is treated differently by her peers and hides herself under big clothes. The only solid she has is her bff Ryland. The problem is that his father (who happens to be her mom's boss) doesn't like her and doesn't want Ryland around her.
There were so many twists and turns in this book that it was a constant rush wondering what would happen next. Wow! That is all I can say and it doesn't come close to describing it.
There are friendship, romance, action, danger, many surprises, and a new and wonderful type of supernatural creatures found in the pages of Kiss of Fire.
I have a concept that I'll keep to myself until I see if it will come to fruition. Let me just say that there are two guys in this book that I really like and while I prefer one, I could totally understand if she ended up with the other. It all comes back to my concept which I will share after it happens or when I can see that it definitely won't. I don't want to ruin any of the book with spoilers, that's why I am talking in circles. lol!
I recommend this to all of you who like to read about supes, especially if you're looking for something unique. :-) You'll be glad that I told you about it!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was fantastic and I am now eager to read book two, Eyes of Ember.
