"There is a place between worlds where our souls take a moment, before they go to Heaven.
It is a quiet place where everything feels as if it has paused.
It is here that Aimee James first meets him.
He is standing over her dead body.
He is more beautiful than anything she has ever seen."
Cursed had me hooked from the very beginning. You are sucked into Aimee's world at the present and things seem out of order. You are then taken back to where it all began for our main character. You are introduced to Alise, her twin sister who is her complete opposite, her BFF/fellow WoW guildie Blake, and her secret crush since the second grade/sisters boy toy, Shane.
Aimee goes to this party at Shane's house. Blake and Aimee have a slight falling out if you will and she ends up drinking some messed up stuff. That is when she meets HIM. He is the most beautiful man she has ever seen with crazy blue eyes. Aimee then goes nuts trying to find this mystery man only to find him in the library. Aleksander tries to play it off like he doesn't know what she's talking about only to later fall in love with her.
Cursed will have you seeing and feeling things through Aimee's eyes. Her heartache, butterflies in the stomach, her pain and her love. So much has happened to her and her family that you can't help but feel her.
One of the things I love most about this book is the conversations between Aimee and Blake. They had me laughing out loud and snorting. Good times really! One of my favorite lines: It's hard to hang in the nerd crowd when you scare the nerds. We scare easily." That was the very first time I LOL'd =)
Tara Brown is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. She is introducing new types of paranormals that I haven't personally read about yet. I really enjoyed reading Cursed, Book 1 of the Devil's Roses Series and I truly hope you like it too!
