    I received this book from the Author for an honest review. I wanted to
    love this book. I loved the premise, the basis of the story. However...
    I did not like this book at all. The main character, Amaya, tries
    desperately to make everyone treat her like an adult. She demands this
    by stomping her foot, running away, attempting suicide, and giving the
    silent treatment. She is a spoiled, whining little thing. And the
    story-line was filled with many structural errors... some were just so
    confusing that I had no idea what the author was trying to say. For
    example, 29% in, there is a run of sentences that is "Zack planned
    nothing like Matt's attitude of right now is better. Zack was always
    watching out for me. Matt was a good as close as he could be best
    friend, but Zack I never had to tell him anything for him to know
    something was wrong or good." That is exact grammar and
    punctuation. There are sentences like that all over the book. And then
    the way Amaya acted. She tried to kill herself, and constantly said she
    wished she had been successful, and then tried to distant herself from
    Thomas because he might kill her. She loves him, but because he might do
    exactly what she tried to do, she very frequently second thinks being
    with him. All in all, I could not find a single character that I felt
    deeply for, cared what happened to them, or wanted to find out more
    about. Sorry, Pura. I wanted to like it, I promise.

    Wanted Nightmares: Battle for Love
    Wanted Nightmares Book One
    By Pura Preis

    Amaya lived among vampires for as long as she can remember, when her “Father” does everything he can to tear her apart from her one true love she cannot take living under his rule any longer and decides to end her life. But as she falls off a cliff in Ireland she is rescued by some unknown person and finds herself trapped by her immortal family once again but this time things are different she has come to the attention of a pack of werewolves who want her dead and she has no idea why. This is only the beginning for Amaya soon her memories slowly come back to her and she must come to terms with what she really is and the battle that lies before her.

    This book starts off a little rocky at first, but soon the author finds her stride and the story comes to life. In the beginning of the book the author tries to explain the love Amaya shares with Thomas but it comes off forced, later in the story though through the experiences the couple shares it is heartwarming and lovely. Pura Preis has created a fantastic character in Amaya and slowly reveals bits and pieces of her in such a way to draw you into the story and with such a unique storyline it is certainly worth the read. There isn’t much I can say without revealing too much of the plot and ruining it, but I can say it ends in such a way they you will want to go out and buy the next book as soon as possible.

    I rated this book 3 stars for the simple fact it was a good idea. Now with that being said the book was really confusing for me there was huge gaps in the book I feel it could have been drawn out a lot more and things explained better than what they were. The characters were thought up really well Amaya was a little bratty at times and more than a little selfish, Thomas was actually good he was mysterious throughout the whole book which was good I wish there was a background about Micheal and Vincent and Amanda. I will definetly read the next one if nothing else than to just see if I can understand the first one. Overall if was just explained better I would have Loved it excellent idea.(less)

    This review is from: Battle for Love (Wanted Nightmares) (Kindle Edition)
    Wanted Nightmares is an appealing young adult novel. Amaya is a teenager who has so much hate for her father who is trying to control her life and take her boyfriend, Thomas, away from her. Without the things most important to her, she tries to commit suicide, but unsuccessfully. Feeling quite worthless and not knowing which way to turn, Amaya feels the need to find where she stands with Thomas. Amaya is a mixed up teenager who just wants to straighten out her life, but first must find out why everyone is against her. This story keeps the reader feeling the need to turn each page until the last, with the need to find out how and where Amaya's life turns and where her longings take her. Good read for the young adults who love a sweet story of romance with a vampire.
