Summary from Goodreads
Discovering long lost relatives can be a real nightmare. Do you know who or what you're related to? Jaden Lisette never imagined she might not live to see her sixteenth birthday, or that befriending reclusive triplets and a mentally challenged man could be her only chance of survival. Days after coming to Louisiana, Jaden falls for eighteen-year-old Briz Nolan. Then she falls into a living nightmare when she discovers a side of her family that she never knew existed. Once she uncovers her family's deadly secret, Jaden is forced into a world she could only imagine in horror movies.
There's nowhere to run.
Excerpt - 5 Star Review By Karen Walpole for Readers’ Favorite -
"I never wanted to put this book down. The story was suspenseful and the writing imaginative."
Excerpt - BlueInk Review -
"...the story’s original characters, well-constructed plot, moving portrayal of teenaged angst and lust, and effective blending of genres should satisfy young adult readers looking for a fresh new fantasy series."
What Jaden knew for certain:
I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with an artist, five cats and a parrot. Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate was inspired by sculptures my partner in life and business, artist Steven Lee Smeltzer created.
With a desire to promote teens that are PONO, Hawaiian for "doing the right thing," I have created the site DaKine Teens+ at dakineteens.tumblr.com
After all, our future lies in their hands.
I apologize that my book list is incomplete. Over the past two years I've read 150+ books, but when I'm not reading, I'm working. Currently I'm writing bk 2 of Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate, and have obviously been a slacker when it comes to posting what I've read. Though as I'm playing catch-up on my list I have decided not to rate them. Just know that if I've posted it, I liked it and would rate it between a 3 & 5. I find it very hard to rate something that I know someone has put their time, heart, and soul into creating.
