Spectral by Shannon Duffy Blog Tour Stop - My Review

Today is BookLove101's turn on the Spectral Blog Tour!!
When I was offered a spot on this tour! I was totally stoked! The cover alone had me wanting to read this book! Throw in the synopsis. This definitely fell under the category of "Books I just have to read!!"

Here's a little info about the book!

Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe — the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along.

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.

Check out the AWESOME book trailer!

My Review
This book had all the right things in all the right places! We've got an interesting love triangle (we all know how important those are to me)... A storyline that leaves enough mystery to keep the reader reading.. and pretty cute characters. 

My review wouldn't be complete without bringing up the love interests. As with every love triangle we've got two completely different guys. Each unique in their own way. We've got the mysterious Roman who literally stole my heart! And the incredibly lovable "boy next door" type, I'd like to call him the nice guy... Chase. Personally, I'm a Roman fan! Gotta love the bad boy! But both definitely had their qualities!

I loved the interesting take on witchcraft that this book had to offer. I haven't read many "witch" related books in my past but this is truly a favorite out of those few I've been lucky enough to come across. There will definitely be more books like this one in my future, that's for sure!

Spectral gets a four star rating from me. Loved the action. LOVED the romance. Simply adored the book!
