    Lacks development and meaningful dialogue

    After her mother's death, Rae moves in with her foster family. Soon she meets and goes on a date with Andrei. When he begins to act possessive she tries to get out of the relationship. To her dismay, Andrei will not leave her alone. Logan, a classmate who usually teases and annoys her becomes her shoulder to lean on as they try to get away from Andrei.

    I honestly write this review with a heavy heart. I started off intrigued and it really let me down as the story went along. My biggest problem with Foreshadow is the description and the summary that I gave is the gist of the story. I might have actually given some things away. It lacked development. The conversations between the characters were one dimensional and felt contrived and unreal, the conflict became too dramatic too soon and without any real reason, and the resolution was unsatisfactory. So many things just didn't ring true. I just can't believe that a relationship starts after two dates within two days where neither one states the status of the relationship. I also find it hard to believe that one would need time to get over such a relationship when it ends the next day (or a couple days afterward). Or that one wouldn't blink when their body is capable of doing really strange things. I also believe that a person doesn't run screaming from a birthday party when they receive a text message from a person inquiring about their location. I understand where the story was supposed to go and what the reader was supposed to feel but the development just didn't get me there. Lastly, the conversations between characters just seemed like filler that neither added to the plot or the characters development. This one just didn't work for me.

    Kinda cheesy

    I read it, it was really kinda cheesy, but I liked the writing and toughed it out. I really hope there will be another to kinda help the ending of this one because it was lacking.

    Smokin Hotness!

    I had the privilege and pleasure getting an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Foreshadow some months ago and I can't wait to re-read Foreshadow with it's GORGEOUS cover and final edits!
    Review:
    You can't help but feel for Raena as you discover she tragically lost her mom and is thrown into a ready made family who isn't all that great at helping her adjust to her new life. Thank God for her constant companion Nuada, her cat, the one thing she has left of her mom. Logan is a hottie, but a pain in her side, with his unstopping jokes and jabs. Enter mega hottie Andrei. He is perfect and interested in her!
    Okay so that's my mini synopsis, here's my ARC review; Some of the story may have changed as I read it before final edits were made, but I couldn't help falling in love with this story. Brea gives just the right amount of descriptive writing, I can't stand it when an author goes into to much detail! She makes you picture and drool over Andrei and be charmed by Logan and all his smokin' hotness. You empathize with Raena and find yourself tensed up waiting to see what happens on the next page.
    You won't be disappointed in Foreshadow, I can't wait to read my new e-book copy!
