Week 11 Reviews: Living Violet, Burning Emerald, Fading Amber

From Goodreads:
He's persuasive, charming, and way too mysterious. And for Samara Marshall, her co-worker is everything she wants most--and everything she most fears. . .

Samara Marshall is determined to make the summer before her senior year the best ever. Her plan: enjoy downtime with friends and work to save up cash for her dream car. Summer romance is not on her to-do list, but uncovering the truth about her flirtatious co-worker, Caleb Baker, is. From the peculiar glow to his eyes to the unfortunate events that befall the girls who pine after him, Samara is the only one to sense danger behind his smile.

But Caleb's secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival. And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves, Samara must take a risk that will change her life forever. . .or consume it.

From Goodreads:
Dating the most popular guy in school is every girl's fantasy. But to Samara Marshall, he's a dangerous force come to rekindle their tangled past. Only it's not her past... Samara faces a challenging senior year. Controlling her inner demon is a struggle, even with help from her Cambion boyfriend, Caleb. But her life takes a turn for the worse when the hottest jock in school begins pursuing her-especially since Malik's anything but what he seems. They share a connection from a forgotten past-a secret that could destroy her and Caleb.

As the attraction becomes harder to resist, Samara is now at the mercy of the demon within her. To break free, Sam must fight a battle where she is the enemy and the prize...and victory will come at a deadly price.

From Goodreads:
After falling for a Cambion and then turning into one herself, Samara never thought her senior year could get any more complicated. The gaps in her memory, the mysterious deaths and the constant danger that threaten her once quiet town have a common thread: Tobias, a demon with a lot of enemies. He's also Samara's other soul mate and he's suddenly disappeared. But Samara isn't the only one who wants to find Tobias. His enemies are getting closer and their plans for retribution could mean deadly consequences for Samara and her true soul mate, Caleb.

My Review
So reading this series, was really awesome! I enjoyed these characters so much, they were so interesting, and in this world of Cambion's, well, of course I had to read it! They were totally different, and interesting, and I wanted to know more about them!

I loved the relationship between Sam and Caleb, because man, it was really conflicted, between the secrets between them, everybody who tried the same, and all the conflicts that they had to struggle through! It was so great to read!

I think one of the biggest things, was Sam becoming a Cambion. Because yeah, that's a changing of a species, and just the idea of it is pretty big, let alone it actually happening! So that was something that caused a lot of conflict!

Things got bigger and bigger as the series went on! The threat might've changed, grew, but so did the characters, the saying, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, applied! And it all grew into something so great, and came together in such a great ending! I loved reading it!

This was such a great series, I'm so glad that I read it, it was just a pleasure to do so!
