Review of Eternal Mixture

Author's Blurb:  If you had the chance to start your life over, would you take it? If you were told you would live for eternity, would you embrace it? If a stranger told you he was your soul mate, would you believe it?

Raina Richmond has played it safe her entire life. She has never broken the rules. That is, until Brent Alexander walked straight into her life, causing havoc. Turning her world upside down.

Brent is the new kid in town. He is every girl’s fantasy: adorable, charming, chiseled, and the typical boy Raina usually steers clear of. But there is just something about him she can’t seem to resist. Safe is no longer an option for her. For him, she breaks all the rules.

What she doesn’t realize is that he holds the key to her past, present, and future. Once he reveals the reasons behind their irrevocable connection, she will unlock the answers to all of her questions, and her life as she knows it will never be the same again.

What I thought:  While Eternal Mixture is a Young Adult Paranormal novel, there aren't any blood sucking vampires or werewolves in this tale.  Shevaun Delucia delivers a fresh take on eternal love.  

Raina is the main character in this story.  I felt the author did a great job capturing the conflicting emotions that Raina is experiencing.  Brent is the love interest - He's exactly what females dream of - tough and tender with a great big dose of sexy.  

The romance in this story is a bit steamier than some Young Adult fiction.  However, it doesn't cross the line.  Adult readers might enjoy a little sizzle and teens will relate to the raging hormones.  

There are a few grammatical errors and a couple of story inconsistancies but I enjoyed the author's writing style.  I thought the story flowed at a nice pace - nothing too rushed.
