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. -summary from goodreads.com
Dez is probably one of the most kick butt heroines I have read about this year! I LOVED Kale.... so cute and innocent :) he literally made me laugh out loud. People at work probably think I'm a random laughing freak! His new found knowledge about our way of living actually made me appreciate the little things in my life, like shoes :)haha! The way he wears shoes in the shower, Haaaaaa!
The plot was super crazy! Big twist that I was not expecting. Dez's father; OMG! I wanted to strangle the man! I loved the whole idea of sixes, kinda reminded me of I am Number Four. Can't wait to pick up the next book and see what happens next.
My only complaint; in all honest I felt that Dez fell for Kale a little too fast, for my taste. She was way too trusting and she didn't even know him all that well. He could have been some psycho killer, and this girl is letting him into her house! Don't get me wrong, I'm usually all for falling for the cute mysterious boy, BUT not running away with him.... You know what I mean? But then again.... With the way Kale is described (especially if he was shirtless), I don't think any one of us would dare kick him out.... So I guess you can say Dez's actions are justified ;) hahaha!
Other than my tiny complaint, this book was awesome. That's the correct word, AWESOME! This is one action packed book, with many tender moments... like for real guys, this book had me going "awwww!!!" every 10 mins. I didn't expect that. So make sure and give it a try, let me know how it treats (or treated) you.
