Unputdownable Books

Established back in 2011, Unputdownable Books is my way to help out indie authors by posting reviews of their books, and other marketing posts for blog tours. Of course, I also review other non-indie books just for pleasure. :D
Hurricane - Jenna-Lynne Duncan I got this book for review awhile back and the only thing I remember about the synopsis was that the heroine lives in New Orleans and gets kidnapped. And that combination of concepts seemed completely different for me and I wanted to try it out.

So I started reading this book with no expectations that it'll be a paranormal-ish kind of book. Our heroine, Andriana is a sweet, modest, independent, angsty girl. And by angsty, I mean the genuine angst, the kind that actually has a reason behind it. I could easily connect with her and sometimes I felt like I was her good friend. I love it when authors manage to write a protagonist who is realistic enough to connect with the readers. At some point in the story, she began to annoy me. She just met these two brothers and she's so into them already. The easy "love" in books can be considerably unrealistic but then again. I think at some point in my teenage life, I had fawned over a guy I just met, like she did. So I can't really complain about her doing so as well.

As for the male protagonists, Luke and Hayden, I don't have much thoughts about them. They're just the usual cute, mysterious new boys at school. Their personalities are almost the opposite, Luke being the eldest knew more, and held this grumpy demeanor. As for Hayden, hes got the whole boy next door thing that I really didn't like much. But what can I say, you still have to have a boy in the picture otherwise, I won't probably read any book if it doesn't have romance.

The overall plot was different and so was the setting, and some bits of the characters. Jenna-Lynne's descriptions are detailed and well constructed. I enjoyed the flow of her writing from one chapter to the another. The book was light, thorough, different, eventful and amazing! Jenna-Lynne has definitely caught me in her web of many fans.
