Jamie Loeak Blog Tour

I was very excited when Krystal Clear Book Reviews decided to host this Blog Tour.  I had seen Tamara talking about this book and I got very interested in it, because of how awesome it sounded!

I was given the book as part of the tour.  So, first I need to thank Jamie Loeak and the lovely ladies at Krystal Clear Book Reviews.

My review of the book:

If you know anything about me from reading this site, following me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I have a slight obsession with fictional boys and book series.  In Body and Soul, Jaime Loeak has rocked my world with both!

Best Part of the book: I am going to start with Kate.  She moves around a lot because her mother is a marine biologist and her father is a lawyer.  This story is set in Florida, a small beach town, and it is here that we meet Rico (ok I had to talk about the boy).  Rico is not just some boy and his friend, Adriana, is not just some girl.  Kate begins to have these "dreams" and is not sure what is happening to her.  Well, there is more to the world that what the human eye can see.  Rico and Adriana try to help her understand the "situation" between the Light and Darkness; but it is up to Kate to choose what is best for her Body and Soul.  This is one reason why I love Rico, because he wants to protect Kate at any cost.  However, the question: can he do it?

Not so great about book:  Here are the 2 problems wrong with this book (and they are  HUGE problems).  The first is, I was not warned that I would be crying my eyes out at the end.  Talk about ripping someone's heart out! OMG! The second issue is: I don't know when book 2 is coming out.  I am not sure if I can hold out too long before I lose it!  I need more Rico and Kate in my life!  I am hoping that a release date is announced soon, until then I will be stalking Jamie Loeak on her site (click HERE)
