Taste Blurb:
At Barinkoff Academy, there’s only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.


I will admit that I normally do not delve into paranormal type books (that is where I am throwing this book whether I am right or wrong!) however, this one sounded interesting and I like getting out of my normal genres.  I picked up this book and had a hard time putting it down!  I didn’t know what the night students were…at first I thought vampires but soon realized that wasn’t right.  I don’t want to give anything away so won’t expand on that anymore…but needless to say it was a fascinating plot twist!  Anyway, there are times where I wanted to smack Phoenix around because she was being very bull headed and not thinking about what she was doing, but at other times that spunk is what helped get her out of some jams.  Overall I give this 4 paws up and encourage you to give it a try….hey, register to win a copy of the book below in case you aren’t 100% sure this is the right genre for you.  It is always good to step out of our comfort zone.



taste authorAuthor Bio:
When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn’t going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master’s courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing. Today, she has four completed Young Adult novels.
