Dangerous Designs (Book 1)

Dangerous Designs (Book 1)

Drawing is her world...but when her new pencil comes alive, it's his world too.

Her...Storey Dalton is seventeen and now boyfriendless after being dumped via Facebook. Drawing is her escape. It's like as soon as she gets down one image, a dozen more are pressing in on her. Then she realizes her pictures are almost drawing themselves...or is it that her new pencil is alive?

Him...Eric Jordan is a new Ranger and the only son of the Councilman to his world. He's crossed the veil between dimensions to retrieve a lost stylus. But Storey is already experimenting with her new pencil and what her drawings can do - like open portals.

It ... The stylus is a soul-bound intelligence from Eric's dimension on Earth and uses Storey's unsuspecting mind to seek its way home, giving her an unbelievable power. She unwittingly opens a third dimension, one that held a dangerous predatory species banished from Eric's world centuries ago, releasing these animals into both dimensions.

Them... Once in Eric's homeland, Storey is blamed for the calamity sentenced to death. When she escapes, Eric is ordered to bring her back or face that same death penalty. With nothing to lose, can they work together across dimensions to save both their worlds?

(MY THOUGHTS)     5 Hearts!!!!!
Dangerous Designs is a cute read. Dale Mayer's has written an amazing second dimension with an evil third. Mayer brings high-tech gadgets and evil monster into this story with Storey and Eric. I really enjoyed the characters and the storyline. The only problem I had was with Storey’s character. No matter how I tried, I couldn't envision her as seventeen. I kept seeing her as fourteen, she just acted too immature for seventeen. But besides That one little problem Storey was great everywhere else.

Storey is an artist and she loves to draw, but when she finds a pencil which is really a stylus from another dimension, it becomes soulbound with Storey and her drawing becomes a portal to another dimension. Eric has been sent to get the stylus back before Storey causes some serious problems between the two dimensions. Before Eric can get the stylus from Storey, she opens up a third portal, one that has been locked for centuries. Eric then has to protect Storey from the councilman of his world, and Storey and Eric must try to save both their worlds.

I really liked Eric. I connected with him right away, probably because I felt sorry for the poor guy. Eric put up with Storey’s smart-ass ways and rude sarcasm and still fell in love with her. So yes, Eric had my sympathy.

Dangerous Designs is a fantastic adventure with lots of fun and a cute romance. I recommend as a great read.
