Breathless by Scott Prusssing - A Review AND This is Free on Amazon NOW


Photobucket
Breathless is the first book in the Blue Fire Saga, a paranormal romance series set at a small college in present day Connecticut. There are currently five books in the series.

Weston College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That's when her mom started acting weird, insisting sunlight hurt her skin because she'd been bitten by a one-fanged vampire.

But fascinated doesn't mean Leesa believes. Any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. But when her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to consider all these and more. She also has to figure out what to do about her mysterious new boyfriend. She knows Rave likes her a lot--so why won't he kiss her?

As Leesa draws closer to finding her brother, she faces some gut-wrenching decisions. Should she risk her mom's life trying to "cure" her? Should she continue seeing Rave, after he reveals his dangerous secret? And most terrifying of all, should she make the ultimate sacrifice-give up her humanity-to save her brother?

The 411 by Maria:

I cannot believe this book is free. When I downloaded it, as a filler between book reviews I did so because of the cover and WELL it was FREE. Little did I know it would be a fabulous read.

Leesa grew up hearing a story about her mother being bitten by a one fanged vampire while pregnant with her. Eventually the craziness of mom who drinks tomato juice and stays out of the sun drove dad away. When Leesa's brother leaves college sending her a letter not to look for him she heads off to the same college on a mission; find out what happened to her brother while learning more about vampires.

During a party she meets two sexy guys, Rave and Stefan. Both are mysteries and attractive. Leesa's college life just got more interesting and she will learn things she didn't even know existed. Is it possible that her brother is caught up in the vampire world? Can she find him before it is too late? Was her mother telling the truth all these years? So many questions and they will all be revealed in Scott's book!

Re-read that last sentence. This was written by a guy. I truly love that a guy wrote it which I had forgotten about until I started the review and typed HIS name. This is a great young adult, supernatural, romance lover read.  I love reading about Leesa and loved how her awkwardness, uncertainly, shyness, made way for a true heroine who would give her last breath for the people she loves. I also love that Scott can write likeable villain's Good job Scott! Great story and I can't wait to read more of your work.

I am right there with ya. If it is free, it's for me! I don't mind at all taking a chance on a free book to read. Makes it so much sweeter when it turns out to be one that I enjoy. So glad that this one fits the bill. Thanks for the review ~ I will get my son to download it for me to read over the fourth!

If this is free and about Vampires then I'm reading it and I love that it's written by a GUY! You don't really see these types of books written by men very often so now I'm even more excited to it. Thanks for the intro and review :)
