Amazon offered me a free book for signing up for their Teen & New Adult Newsletter. FREE book? Are you kidding me? You don’t have to ask me twice. I took them up on the offer and downloaded Jennifer L. Armentrout’s CURSED. It’s a 2012 release from Spencer Hill books, if you are interested in checking it out. So naturally I started reading and I love it. Here’s the blurb, just imagine if you were faced with Ember’s life how you’d handle it.
and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things–including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden’s adopted father, a man she’s sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister’s hand again. And hell, she’d also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn’t?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not’ve been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life.
