Ally Moran has always just known about things—things she shouldn’t really be able to know… 

Suddenly when she starts having vivid visions about a former friend who is in desperate trouble, the adults in her life think she might hold the key to an ancient mystery. 

Jack Ruiz has a troubled past, but is trying to make a fresh start at a new high school… 

He just wants to keep his head down and graduate, hopefully before he turns 20. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a feisty redhead and her psychic visions. 

While Jack valiantly attempts to keep Ally at arm’s length, she is equally determined to be a part of his life. Who will win this battle of wills? 

More importantly… 

Can this unlikely couple work together to find answers to Ally’s visions before someone gets killed?

The Seeker is Book One is a Series

When I first started reading this book, I had no idea what to expect. Heck, I didn’t even know what the book was about or how many books were in the series. But boy, am I glad I signed up for this tour! I truly enjoyed SEEKER! The author’s writing style made me not only fall in love with the story line, but the characters as well. I had no problem whatsoever visualizing the scenes throughout the book. Everything – the characters, their problems, their lives, the dialogue – were truly brought to life and very realistic! I was right there with them.

In Seeker, we got introduced to Ally. She was a normal 17-year old in high school…or so she thought. You see, one day during class, she just about passed out while having a vision. She could not explain what she had seen in her head, but she knew she was no longer a “normal” teenager. Little did she know, her life was about to change in ways she could not even begin to imagine.

Through her new journey, (and quite the journey it was!) Ally was able to share her experiences, frustration, and fears with Jack, a very hot and protective friend. You see, Jack was older than Ally and had a past he was trying to stay away from, so while it was clear as day that they both were very much attracted to each other, Jack kept fighting his feelings.

Jack. OH, JACK. I think I fell in love with him from the very first moment he got introduced. The way he treated Ally was simply swoon-worthy! I was rooting for them to get together the whole, entire time, so imagine my excitement when it finally happened!!! I may have squealed and done a few happy dances, LOL!!

Seeker had a perfect combination of drama and suspense with a touch of romance. Ally’s journey was anything but boring, let me tell you! Overall, I truly did enjoy this book, but towards the end, I felt like it dragged a little. Other than that, I’ve got no complains about this first installment in The Seeker Series. If you’re a fan of YA Paranormal Romance, this is a series you need to start!! 
4.5 – 5 stars!

Genre: YA | Paranormal | Romance | Suspense 
Meet Ally, a 17 year-old who also happens to be psychic. Oh, and she’s getting more psychic with every passing day, so much so that she’s been sent to Ireland to check in with the Seer Council to see what’s up with her freaky new powers.

Jack is her 19 year-old boyfriend, a former trouble-maker who is back on track and trying desperately to graduate. His plans did not include falling in love with psychic trouble-magnet.

Just last month they worked together to save a friend in deep trouble and ended up exposing a steroid ring at their school. Now there’s a new guy at school who seems just a little bit too interested in Ally for Jack’s liking. And why does Ally keep dreaming about a kidnapping? Last month seems like a cakewalk compared to this semester. Ally's trying to solve a mystery, but Jack is just trying to keep her alive.

 Holy cow, what an amazing sequel! This book follows Ally’s and Jacks story so I will HIGHLY recommend you read Seeker first.

When I started Dreamer, I had NO idea where the author would go with the story line. For a while there, I was VERY nervous, but suffice it to say, everything unfolded in a way I was happy with. There was more suspense and drama in this book than during book 1, and yes, more romance too!! Things between Jack and Ally really started to heat up!!! *fans self!*

The suspenseful aspect of this book really HOOKED me. I also loved how the author incorporated the paranormal side into the plot – it made everything click. Ally’s powers kept developing and getting stronger. She was not just a Seer anymore…she was suspected to be very powerful. More so than anyone expected. That too had me intrigued beyond belief!

The author has this keen ability to write a story that is automatically brought to life. Smooth. Natural. Once again, Amy Reece delivered a wonderful read. I had no problem connecting with the story or any of the characters – LOVED the secondary characters as well!!! Every single detail in this book fit perfectly and made all the details come full circle. I cannot wait for book 3 in this series!!!! Dreamer ended in a wonderful place, but yes, plot-wise, there is MORE to come and I am SUPER excited and curious!!  FIVE STARS!
