Ariel Kimber is a 17-year-old girl who, thanks to her mother, has had a life full of unpleasantness and abuse. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
After her mother meets a man online, Ariel is forced to move to a different state, leaving all that she has ever known behind. Any teenager’s nightmare. But Ariel isn’t like most teenagers, she’s different, and she has literally nothing to leave behind. No friends, no nothing. They move next door to a house that remains empty all summer long until the day before the first day of school. A school where the other kids treat Ariel like garbage because of who her mother is and the fact that she’s different from them, save for a few – her neighbors. Tyson, his mysterious Uncle, Quinton, and twins, Abel and Addison. They quickly become her only friends, but Ariel soon finds out they are hiding things from her, keeping secrets from her. And she wants answers. Surprisingly, they give them to her. What do you do when you find out you’re not who you always thought you were and your whole world gets flipped upside down?
Ariel Kimber stumbles into a world she didn’t know existed, a world of magic and nothing is as it seems. Thankfully, she has the guys to guide her, to hold her hand along the way and she is going to need a whole lot of hand holding.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
GAH!!! This book. I had no clue its paranormal and so when the elements hit I was like WHAT!! How did I miss it? #SlowBrain
Our girl Ariel has had a bad life. A drunk, stripper for a mom who only cares for Ariel if she can get something from another or pour her another drink. Honestly Ariel is more of an annoyance then anything. When her mother moves her and Ariel to a new town to be a live in “Companion” she is forced to adjust to a small town where everyone knows your business. The towns people are not too thrilled with her mom sooo the kids in High School are not too friendly with Ariel.
On her first day, she runs smack in to the town hottie with an attitude named Tyson. The two are thrust into each other’s path all day long. She leaves and is pretty much hating life. One day two everything changes and Mr. Rude becomes Mr. Friendly. The two form a strange friendship. Their friendship is now joined by a pair of twins who happen to live with Tyson and his brooding uncle Quint. Oh yeah and they happen to be Ariel’s neighbors.
As the story unfolds there is more to Ariel then just a pretty girl next door and her new friends are keeping some big, crazy secrets from her. The guys attraction to Ariel is off the carts and so is hers to them but that isn’t normal, right? I mean you can’t be attracted to them ALL can you? Then there is the brooding and cranky uncle who is not that much older than her who keeps checking her out and her him…so as you can tell…LOTS OF CHEMISTRY!!!
This book was sooooo good. I didn’t stop once I started. The beginning of the story keeps you invested because you feel for Ariel but then as the story unfold, DUDE YOU CAN’T STOP!!!!!!!!
