Their love was meant to be.
When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.
But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.
Guys... I'm really getting sick of these female MCs that only think about their male love interest and basically nothing else.. It's getting really. really. old.
I was pretty excited about this book. I absolutely love Ireland, so I was looking forward to reading a book set in it, but I was also a bit nervous, because of this line in the synopsis: "she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs." I mean, I know that's kind of the thing with these type of books, the 'instant love' but this... this was too much. It was like, the minute Megan and Adam got together, they refused to think of even the thought that they might be separated. It was one of those "I can't live without you, even though I've only known you for two weeks" and I just got really tired of it, really quickly.
(I guess you could I say I don't really believe in that sort of thing)
I really wish I could say that I came out of this book pleased and ready to read the next one, but I found it to be so generic, with nothing much to it except a bunch of lore that seemed jumbled up together with not a lot of order and a love story that I've seen a hundred times. I ended up skimming most of the ending, as I found it to be fairly tedious and predictable. Sadly, this one wasn't a huge thumbs up for me.
