The first night I started reading Stained, I was so engrossed in the story that I fell asleep dreaming I was chasing Demons on the streets of Memphis. It is the very rare book that makes it into my dreams. The bantering between Julia and Kayne was endearing, hilarious and at times frustrating, but it was consistently entertaining. Like any relationship, you'll want to slap Kayne just as much as you'll want to kiss him. It only added to the enjoyment of their adventure and growing relationship. I was on the edge of my seat through most of the book, right up until the end. the last page will have you drooling for more. Lastly, being a Tennessee girl who's been to Memphis several times, I loved that Julia and Kayne's story begins in Memphis.

Minus stars

What a big load of rubbish. Probably one of the worst books i have ever tried to read. File this garbage under DNF and deleting rapidly. Would not recommend at all.

    Disapointed

    It took me two days to read this and I usually finish a 200 page book in one. Way too much filler in here.

    Confusing....

    Interesting story but so very confusing at times. There were many scenes in the book that I couldn't tell if they were actually happening or they were memories or what. It was very frustrating. I think this story needs more development. Julia's character was a bit annoying, I mean she's 17 not 12, but she acted like she was fresh out of the womb, sheesh girl stop it with the crying...man up!

    The book ends on a cliffhanger so be prepared to buy the rest of the books in this series if you are interested in finishing it up. I won't be reading any more of this series, it was just so confusing at times, I found myself wanting to hurry up and finish reading it....sighs.

    I gave it three stars because of the above mentioned reasons and there were a lot of grammatical /spelling errors. This always takes away from the story. I think this book has great potential, a little rewrite and it'll be golden.

    Okay

    This book was EXTREMELY confusing at first, and I couldn't find my bearings until about half way through the book. It was just an okay read, really. Nothing I would rave about, but I would recommend it to pass the time.
