Volition By: Shawn Kirsten Maravel
Self Published
Pages: 294

Charlotte Rush would be the first to admit that her life is no rollercoaster ride. Her days are laced with ordinary and at times boring monotony. But with a heart that finds itself frequently broken she's happy to say that she's content. When her friends convince her to spend the night out at a club to let loose and maybe even find a guy, she finally admits that her life might be missing something.

No sooner does she let go of her inhibitions does she find herself waking up in a dark hotel room in the presence of Joel, a man who carries mystery in his eyes and familiarity in his smile. Against reason Charlotte decides to trust him based solely on one thing. Somehow, she is sure that she knows him.

In a race against time to find answers and to solve the crime committed against her Charlotte finds herself falling for him. However, with nothing but mystery surrounding him she can't even be sure that he's the hero at all. While knowing all of the right things to say he still manages to tell her nothing. As a battle is waged over the innocence of her cryptic stranger, Charlotte discovers that much greater danger awaits her. And the mysteries behind who and what Joel is will lead Charlotte to discover that heaven and earth are not so far apart.

So where should I start with this book? Well it's amazing we could start there, or we could start with it's incredible ? hmm I think you get my point. Charlotte doesn't trust men, all they end up doing is causing pain, so what's the point? Well, all that thinking was before Joel..she doesn't know what it is about Joel, her friends don't trust him...and Charlotte knows there is something off about him, but she can't get past the feeling that she knows him from somewhere, maybe a past life? Maybe he just reminds her of someone? She's not sure. As things start to steam up between Charlotte and Joel more and more questions are left unanswered. Charlotte can't help, but fall for Joel though even with all the mystery that is surrounds him.

This book was a little slow at first, but it picks up towards the middle/end, Charlotte has even more stress in her life than just trying to figure out what the deal is with Joel, she is also fighting a legal case against a scum bag club owner Matt Copper, trying to keep her parents calm, and finishing up her degree in art. Joel, is deff drool worthy in this awesome love story and I am sure if you pick this book up it will not disappoint (:

I would deff Recommend this book if you like Hush Hush, or Fallen (:

-Oh AND can I just say this book has the most amazing ending ever?!?! It will literally blow your mind (:
