Strength (Mark of Nexus, #1) by Carrie Butler

 Book Summary: 

  When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn't look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period. 

 Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation--and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…

 Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace's powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.

 They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do--even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart.

*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ***

 Let me start by expressing how grateful I am for having the chance to read Strength for free~ which by the way is totally worth buying! After reading Strength I was like~


 Strength is a very fun, refreshing, enjoyable read. I feel so good while and after reading it. I am definitely adding it in my to-re-read and favorites bookshelves.


 No dull moments! Rena Collins is one hilarious heroine, I loved her!!

  I ended bitching out the whole class. That was the week my professor suggested I try independent studies. 

  it's the only socially acceptable way to indulge in my love of hitting things. Not that I should admit that.

I really liked Wallace ~ he's every woman's dream..HOT.GOOD and sometimes aloof..makes you all want him more nyahaha


but surprisingly I love Rena more than Wallace. I love how strong-willed she is, she makes me laugh even in the most panic-filled situation...gawd I love the way she thinks :) but let's not forget the equally hot twin~ Cole, the lovable jerk...I want someone for him too..perhaps me?


 I loved how this first book ended..not a cliffhanger that will make us all cray cray but enough to be excited..sooo excited for the next book..I'm totally ready to read the second book


I'm giving Strength 6/5 stars. It made me so happy I'm puking rainbows and unicorn right now.
 Will I recommend it? Absolutely.
