*Book was provided by publisher for honest review*
When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

What I thought

I was a bit disappointed with this one. Not because of the story itself, but with the characters. I was actually intrigued with the story and it was the reason I finished the book. I have a fascination for X-Men type novels. But I struggled to finish, despite having a story that I just wanted to know how it all ended.

Dez was a hard character to like. So hard, in fact, that I actually finished the novel disliking her a lot. I was never able to connect with her. She was abrasive and I had a hard time rooting for her. Being an adrenaline junkie would have been alright, but going out of her way to do things to not only get her fathers attention but his wrath as well, wasn't something I wanted to see for the heroine of this book. I was hoping to find some vulnerable side but never found it.

I had high hopes for this book. The blurb had me excited to pick this up. But in all honesty, I really struggled to keep reading. There were several times along the way that I had just wanted to give up, to give in and put this book aside and not finish. I hope others are able to enjoy it more than I did, but this book was not for me.

I know! I really wanted to! I liked the story line well enough. But I've read lots of positive reviews, so it makes me feel better since I didn't like it.
