"I stood close to the edge looking down at what I thought was my death. Then, I somehow ignored the water and only saw him. He looked like a dark angel on a cloud of mist holding his arms out to me. I closed my eyes and inhaled deeply. Then I jumped." Mindy


After Mindy's childhood best friend, Dean Aiken, shuts her and everyone else out of his life, she learns to move on. Years pass and she gets used to the fact that he's no longer a part of her life, but things begin to change...

Mindy's new best friend, Markus Medina, witnesses Dean kill two people behind a club. Mindy has a hard time believing him, especially when he mentions that the bodies disappear. Poof! Into thin air. Markus decides he has to follow Dean around in order to get evidence that he's been killing people, so he doesn't sound like a nut to the police.

Despite Marcus' crazy theories about the possibility of Dean not being human. And not to mention the fact that he's dangerous. Mindy can't help that she may be falling in love with him.

When she finds out about what Dean really is and the world he tried to keep her away's already too late.

This is an excellent book for the young adult genre, although at 47 years old, I was totally enthralled with it. I could not walk away from it until I finished it, and now I'm hanging on desperately waiting for the sequel to be released next year! The author kept me guessing to the very end - I couldn't figure out the plot, and her descriptions completely pulled me into the story. I was there, regardless of the television and family, pets and normal daily noise going on around me. I was lost to the experience, and heaven help anyone who tried to interrupt it! I will continue to buy this author's work, and am so glad she was recommended to me!

This is an author not afraid to think outside he box and take a leap. Captivated will grab readers right from the Prologue, and not allow you a breath til the very end. The romance is hot, and the headache is palpable. Be ready to laugh and cry in this whirlwind story that will deny reads their simple happily ever after. The drastic conclusion left me in a uproar, and in despair for the characters of the intense read. I'm anxious to see just where D. Apodaca will take this story from here. Congratulations on such a beautiful book, and truly amazing story. BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!

What can I say? This book is amazing! Before even reading the blurb or the title, the cover draws you in straight away, and you know what they say about judging a book by it's cover...But for Affliction, you can, the over is awesome and the book is so addicting. I love the way you want to keep reading on after a urn of events. The writing is suspenseful and the ideas are brilliant. I loved it. Affliction is one of those books you just have to stay up and finish even though its one in the morning and you have an important project due that exact day...guilty. One of those book with a witty sense of humor and a charming and hot, while also infuriating guy and the girl that has to deal with him.
