Blurb from Goodreads: Jessie's moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school lets out for summer break. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer. Now, Jessie and Caleb must learn how to control the light...before they lose each other forever.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead. 

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie.

Review: This book was great but it was rather simple and uncomplicated.So I'm going to make my review short and sweet.
     This is a typical paranormal romance book. If you're into chick-lit then this is the book for you. It's a sweet lovey dovey gooey kind of a romance. Now don't get me wrong there is definitely plot to this novel, but this isn't the kind of book where its all like action, sizzling chemistry or love hate relationship between lead hero and heroine, action, fighting, some crazy revelation that makes you pissed off, hot make out scene, laugh your butt off scene, revelation that makes go" that did not just happen" bawling hysterically like a weirdo while rolling into a ball on the floor sad scene and then tie it all of with a rip your hair out kid of cliffhanger. This isn't that type of book. It's much slower an much more calculated and the reveals aren't really shocking you're prepared for them. Now I'm not saying it's a bad thing there should be more easy going light books out there that  don't make you experience a full spectrum of emotions that makes you're friends things you're losing it.This was a cute, slower paced  book.
  Jessie is a good character. She is totally average but that makes her relate-able. You can connect with whats she's thinking and experiencing.I loved her relationship with Caleb. It was a typical soul-mate perfect couple relationship. It's the kind of relationship everyone wants and it was really cute reading it.
   Caleb is perfect. Literally. I don't think this guy has a single flaw. Nope I can't think of one. He was perfect. He wasn't a pushover but he wasn't one of those alpha you do as I say males. He was sweet and good looking and mannered and just the perfect gentleman. Like I might consider moving to North Carolina just to meet a guy like Caleb. He was totally great.
  Amber was probably my favorite character after Caleb. This girl was too funny. She's that one friend that can make any situation awkward or any conversation just weird. She's that girl that pretends to be tough just to avoid stupid people. She was a great friend and I loved how she handled things with a sense of humor.
    Go check out this light read it's great for people who like a good paranormal romance.
