17-year-old Lila has two secrets she’s prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she’s been in love with her brother’s best friend, Alex, since forever.

After a mugging exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust—her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they’ve found them.

In a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realises that she is not alone—there are others out there just like her—people with special powers—and her mother’s killer is one of them…

My Rating: 3.5 stars

My Thoughts:

This book was so much better than I expected! It was an incredible story with lots and lots of action, plenty of romance, and a whole lot of plot twists.

Lila has a gift that she doesn’t know how to control. Her brother, Jack, and his best friend, Alex who is also the love of Lila’s life, are both marines working a top-secret project. After an incident with her gift, Lila goes to live with them and ends up trying to find answers about her mother’s murder, which it turns out, Alex and Jack know a lot about.

Lila and Alex have a slow building relationship throughout the whole book even though Lila has been head over heels in love with him since she was five. Alex is amazingly sweet and cares for Lila so much and you know that he truly would do anything to protect her. Even though things get pretty complicated for them, their love for each other is what gets them though everything.

Eventually Lila discovers some truths, which change everything for everyone. No one knows who to trust and what to do next, so that being said the book ends with a pretty huge cliffhanger! I can’t wait to read the sequel and see how everything turns out!

If you love action-packed romances, then this book is definitely for you!
