College junior Ariel Richmond is working on year three of Project Normalcy.
Her house reeks of keggers past and her bestie is just a slight bit vulgar. But the thing is—they both aid in making life refreshingly uneventful.
So much for hard-earned mediocrity when Luca Grinaldi appears on the scene.
Luca’s sudden presence on campus is hard to ignore. Those bright eyes act like a beacon to unsuspecting females, and with features like his, he’s got to be moonlighting for GQ. Luca hopelessly captivates Ariel with his confidence and charisma, but the mysteries surrounding him make him nearly untouchable. And just when Ariel grows close enough to unlock his secrets, a tragic event sends her life in a downward spiral.
That steady life is no longer an option and allies quickly become scarce. The mysterious Luca seems to be the only one willing to help her—but with that trust comes the burden of his secrets. He has a dark mission of otherworldly proportions, and is willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes to see it completed.
Gone are the days of simply maintaining normalcy, and if Ariel isn’t cautious with her trust, so soon may be her future.
I've had my head in cloud New Adult so I haven't read any Paranormal for quite a while now but this one screams it loud and clear and...my interest has definitely been peaked!
And, doesn't Luca just sound sexy? I just wanna know more about him! Oh wait, I'm supposed to be talking about the cover, I believe. First of all, it's purple--hello! I love me some purply awesomeness! And secondly, I love the flower. Okay, after typing that out, Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout just came to mind. It's not even the same, similar? Maybe. But this cover has its own uniqueness, such as the illusion of like...a glittery sparkle that comes out from the flower.
Also, there's people on the cover. That's the one thing I'm not feelin' so much. I'm not a huge fan of book covers with people's faces on 'em; it ruins the image of the characters for me a little bit. Other than that, I love the cover. I'm also drawn to the coloring of the title and the font of it as well.
Okay, so a few of you guys might have to confirm or deny this (hopefully, confirm or else I really am losing it) but if you look really closely above the "u" and "n" in hunt, is there an eye there? An eye like that of a horse? Maybe...?
Aah, anyway...what do you think of this cover? Have you heard of it before? After reading the synopsis, what did you think? Tell me in the comments below, eh?
