Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls, #1)

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1)

Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason.  As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart. 
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

(My Thoughts)    5  STARS!!!!!
The cover is so beautiful, I just had to read it. And the story inside is just as amazing. Born at Midnight had me laughing, crying, and angry. Instead of a love triangle, there’s a love quadrangle. It was difficult for me to choose between the tender, patient, and  beautiful, Derek, and the rough, hard, caring, bad boy, Lucas, I mean, when a guy hands you line like, "You have no idea how beautiful you are, do you?” while he's brushing a strand of hair from your cheek, how can you not love him? I can’t decide who Kylie should be with. The Jerk ex-boyfriend is oblivious out, but Lucas and Derek, mmmm; heck let her have both lol. Everyone should have friends like Della and Miranda. Della had me laughing my butt off with her in-your-face altitude. You just don't mess with Della. Miranda is the tender quite type, but she’s also tough. These two girls are loyal friends to Kylie. I really like when an author shows the real, today teens, and C. C. Hunter does a wonderful job with her characters. She shows it with the language and the romances. All the charters are well developed, and the plot is strong. I’m waiting for the second book in this series. Just to let you know, there is a FREE Turned at Dark (Shadow Falls Short Story) eBook on B&N's that tells Della’s and her cousin Chan’s story. Definitely recommend Born at Midnight, an excellent read. You will love it.
