The Light Tamer (The Light Tamer #1) by Devyn Dawson

Goodreads description:

Jessie's moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school lets out for summer break. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer. Now, Jessie and Caleb must learn how to control the light...before they lose each other forever.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead. 

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie

Mary's review:

First I need to thank my two author friends Quinn Loftis and Tiffany King for recommending this book to me.  I love these 2 ladies so much and I suggest you read all of their books.

Best part of book: Hello Caleb, Jessie and Amber!! I love all 3 of these characters! Jessie is a New Yorker that heads to North Carolina with her mother to live with her grandmother.  (By the way, I love Ms. Gayle, aka Grandma).  Jessie's grandmother is the one that "reintroduces" Caleb to Jessie.  They were "friends" when they were kids but grew apart with Caleb's family moved to Virginia.  Now, Caleb's mother passed away and his family moved back to North Carolina.  Caleb is the one that explains to Jessie about being a Light Tamer.  Then comes Amber!  I love this girl.  She tries to be all "rough with a I-Don't-Care attitude"  but that is not really her.  She is the opposite of Jessie and that is why they are such good friends.  Now, Caleb and Jessie have a "special" relationship and they (along with other Light Tamers) need to control their light to take care of the Dark Ones.

Not so great about book: Ok, I really did enjoy this book, but there was a part of the book that I didn't like.  It was towards the end and I felt like it was unnecessary.  I wasn't really sure where the author was going with this twist but I did not care for it.  Also, I felt that towards the end was rushed. I felt that the author just "wanted it over".  Don't get me wrong the book is great and I will be waiting the arrival of Book 2! (which I don't know at this time when that will be) but those were my only flaws.
