What I liked: 1) Katrina. Her emotions were all raw and right at the surface. I thought she was really well-developed, and written in such a way that anyone can empathize with her. 2) A really great opening. I was hooked from paragraph one with this story. When I start off curious about something, I know I'm going to be interested in the story. 3) The Sidhi world. There is so much complexity and creativity in this world that I am always ready to find out what's going to happen on the next page. 4) The tie-in to another story of Miz Cooper's that I really enjoyed. Characters from her novel Forbidden Temptation of A Vampire appear in this story, (read my review here) but you don't have to have read it to enjoy this novella.
What I didn't like: 1) The only complaint I have is that I wanted more. I almost feel like I wish I had a Sidhi history book so I could know more about the past of this world, what it's laws are, who lives there, how the families in power got that way...
Overall thoughts: This was definitely a fun story. The romance was real, and entertaining, with characters that were easy to relate to. I'd definitely recommend getting into Miz Cooper's Sidhi series as a light and fun read. Stolen is a great place to start if you want to ease your way in

As always, Cooper delivers a captivating and thrilling story for her readers. It is very well written and well thought out. One cannot help but be drawn in through Coopers light, fluid, and informative writing style.
The characters captivate you from the get-go, being so well and thrillingly developed. You cannot help but feel for them in their plight. Cooper also brings bullying to the forefront in a very unique and unusual way.
I appreciate that Cooper can tell such a complete and captivating story within such a short span of pages. As a reader, you never feel that there is anything missing from the story itself, but like any good book, you’re very sorry to see it end.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review

I enjoyed this book, sure it was a little short considering it was only 22,000 words. It was still really good. Even with the length of the book being short, it had quality writing! I had requested to read this book from a Read, Reviews, Recommendations that has authors suggest bloggers to review their books! I am really happy I requested this book!
The plot was quick and to the point, but kept you guessing about what Katrina would do. I like a little length in my books, but this one was worth it. It gave enough background information for you to understand what was going on, even if it was the 3rd book in the series.
Lets start with Katrina. She's a very determined girl. She's suffering from the fact that her best friend has ditched her. Without any explanation. It doesn't stop her though from living her life. She still longs for her best friend, and it hurts even more when she see's him right next door, and he runs away from her.
Her best friend's name is Eric. He is the 'pre-pub' kid who is suffering right along with Katrina, but isn't doing anything about his suffrage. Then a spiteful girl who hates Katrina latches on to him and well starts to ruin his life. What will he do now that he is forbidden to talk to Katrina and is in pain because of it?
I really enjoyed this book. Enough to go and buy the other books written by Jodie B. Cooper. I give this book a 49 out of 59 tacos! Thank you Mrs. Cooper for having me review the book, I have thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
