Amanda gives a whole new meaning to cool…
Amanda Smith is sick of getting chased from town-to-town. So when she lands in tiny Trifle, Arizona, she hopes it’s her last move for a long time. Despite hating the smallness of the town, she settles in and finds a best friend, and even a boyfriend. Normality at its finest. But for a girl who can shoot snow from her hands and lift a two-ton truck over her head like a bag of feathers—normal is not an option. The scientists who murdered her mother come barreling into Amanda’s quiet life. She must decide if she’ll run again or stay and fight. The price of either choice might be her life or the lives of those she’s come to love.
My Thoughts <3:
I have been extremely lucky to get to read this ARC of Frostbite. I absolutely love a hot steamy romance, but if I’m not reading a good romance I want something on the sci-fi, paranormal, outta-this-world type story, with a touch of romance. Frostbite is exactly that!
Amanda and her brother,Scott, are on their own. Their parents passed away due to a “tragic accident.” She is so close to having a normal life unlike the past 4 years. She is trying to stay out of trouble, graduate, and has the best friend she could ever have, Georgia. Then she lands in detention and there is Zach…. hummm, now where will this go?
This book is full of self discovery, understanding ones self, finding family, super powers, cold, heat, speed, crazy strength, and taking down the Coats. And finding the chance at true love along the way!
From Chapter 1, I was hooked! I had to know more about Amanda and what was her deal, who were the Coats, what really happened to her parents, could she have a relationship, and would they have to run again.
This book is full of action, adventure, superpowers, relationships, and everything finally coming together. It is well written, and I ❤ the cover! It is SOOOOO Amanda! I also love how this story is more than just a story about super powers or a romance. It’s like a real life story with several major twists! With each character, you know there is relevance for their intertwining and meeting.
I ❤ how each of the characters all fall into their place… my favorite is Amanda & Georgia. They are the perfect fire & ice! Frostbite has a ton of action. You are always on your toes and wondering what is in store next for Amanda, Scott, and now everyone else they trust!
The story end exactly where it should, but leaves you wanting to know more. I look forward to seeing where the next journey takes Amanda, Georgia, Scott, Zach, & Jasmine!
Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources – Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush – since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush’s books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake, and a portion of the proceeds benefits cancer research and awareness.
