HYPNOTIC by Marja Healy


GOODREADS: "Magnificently written. Totally romantic. The most beautiful vampire romance I'd ever read."
GOODREADS: "Masterpiece of fine writing."

Devastated after losing her mother, Rose Heart’s life was pretty much over in the godforsaken tundra of West Lake, Minnesota. But when she’s caught red-handed by her coach father with Chaz Calloway, a mysterious quarterback from the rival team, love’s never been more dangerous. Their world falling apart, there's a murder at sudden death overtime. A vow of undying love on a rose. And a secret that will surely get them both killed. But can Rose really make the ultimate sacrifice and give a vampire her blood?

With heart pounding passion, the Hypnotic series perfectly captures the deadly struggle between rebelling against the rules and fighting for forbidden love.

For readers 12 and up, Hypnotic is a young adult paranormal romance with mild language and mild sexual situations. Marja was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in long fiction.

As I read the prologue, I instantaneously fell in love. I devoured the the story in a few sittings, it's my escape from reality.

I came to care about Rose and Chaz so much, I felt I knew them. When their fathers kept them apart at the game, I literally cried. This writing was done at the hand of an expert. So much so, that at times, I forgot I was reading a book. When Chaz nailed The Creep who kept showing up to bug Rose, and then she nailed him worse, this was just poetic justice. She's tough as nails. I even learned how to stick up for myself from her with bullies. Man! This book got me so excited, the vow of the rose was so cool, I told everybody about it. Even my aunts. The end was beaatiful and then there was that zinger about the vampire's father. I'll wait on pins and needles for book two. I was let down by the ultimate ending of book four in Twi. Bizzaro to say the least. Hypnotic kept me in reality. That's the true touch of a master storyteller. Read HYPNOTIC. You'll be blown away.

Desperate romance, urgent romance -- this book makes me remember my first. The vivid descriptions bring me right back to that time. The lead character, named Rose, is no wilting flower: This girl packs some attitude!

This book was quite good. I enjoyed watching how Rose fell in love with Chaz. It was all very well written and discriptive. Romantic even. When I read this book, I was transported into a world where a young girls mother has died of Cancer and she is not over it yet. I can really relate to this book because it is relatable. When you lose a loved one, it is very hard to let that go. It is also made worse by other loved ones that cope with it by pretending it never happened. For instance, Roses father, Coach Heart, dances with his wifes wedding gown before he drinks himself to sleep.. But overall, Hypnotic was a very well written and addicting book.

You only come across a gorgeous book like Hypnotic once in a lifetime. A beautifully written Romeo & Juliet book for our generation, it's truly what romance is all about. Chaz and Rose meet under the worst possible conditions and go on to fight to the death for each other. Words like stunning, heartbreaking, unforgettable, these pretty much sum up the Hypnotic experience. Never have I read a vampire book as breathtaking in scope as this one. The characters are that well defined. Chaz, Rose, the unforgettable Richard, Sergeant Stone and Coach Heart. You become a part of the story as much as the story becomes a part of you. And get this, it's not a copy cat of any book out today. And somebody said there were typos. What? They've been fixed by now, I guess. The experience is pure joy. I read this book in three sittings, the whole world blocked out by the writing. And I won't be able to sleep until the sequel comes out. Trust me, Hypnotic's that profoundly awesome. I'm waiting to have a vow-of-the-rose myself someday. Now all I need to find is a wonderful prince charming like Chaz, the vampire, and a magic rose. Then I'll be set. Dreams are made with this book. It's wondrous. I can't say enough good things. You'll see.

Never have I read such a beautiful novel. With Twilight and vamps so trendy right now, this had all the elements we love but was a refreshing take. The plot is simply genius, a modern day Romeo & Juliet with all the same drama and action. And my goodness, the romance! Healy's artistry in her writing, is so beautiful. Both Chaz's dialogue and the depth of Rose's emotions are unmatched. The vow of the rose, the fierce rematch game, you are truly hypnotized by this novel and get lost in the sheer force of emotion. This is writing that has power, to make you lose reality. This novel would make a fabulous movie! I hope it gets famous. But a novel of this caliber for 99 cents? Amazing. You can't regret it. An ending leaving you dying for more, I hope Marja comes out with the sequel soon. This novel is perfection. A beautiul performance!

I won't forget Chaz and Rose's first dance more than my own first dance. Wow. This is not a Twilight retelling. This one goes for the jugular in emotion. I'm still reeling. I didn't know a book could do this to you, but Hypnotic stays with you way after you're done. When things went wrong for them, I got bummed. When they went right, my whole day went well. They got to me that much. The vow of the rose, what a first kiss!!! A friend told me this was like Romeo & Juliet but for now. Now I know what they meant. Okay, without wrecking this, there's even that suicide scene. But I'm not snotty enough to blurt the ending. Get Hypnotized. It's the best dollar I ever spent in my whole entire sixteen years. And oh, I'd love to date a quarterback vampire too.

If you don't like this book, you've got issues other than vampires. Like maybe, you read the other books and don't know what a guy is supposed to behave like. No. Romance is not chewing a baby out of someone's womb. Duh. Don't miss this one. I thought I'd read them all. Every vampire book, big and small. Whoever this Marja is, where has she been? I couldn't put HYPNOTIC down. I got Hypnotized. Chaz talks so pretty. The Vow Of The Rose, that part, and the touchdown, believe it or not, were spellbinding!

First off, I'm 24. I read nothing but vamp romances. And Hypnotic left me speechless. The best of the best, I so connected with Rose. I'd lost my mother young too. And I got to tell you, to find a guy like Chaz to help her out, and a vampire to boot, their love just broke my heart. Also, what makes this book so seriously stand out from all the other saga ones is its intricate plot. Blew me totally away. And if you didn't fall apart during the vow of you know what, don't even try to write about Hypnotic. Because I just won't listen to you. Because it means you didn't read the book. We who did, well. We know special when we see it. This has gorgeous written all over it. The writer of this thing, to die for. A stellar poet or something. On to Magnetic. Yes!

I read Hypnotic to my boyfriend, the part about the rose, and he cried. He actually cried. If this was a movie, he said he'd go see it.

Okay so- I'm not gonna lie here! The prologue hooked me but ruined the story. But this book was a must read cant wait to get the next book, Magnetic. It was totaly worth it and though if there was one thing that bothered me it was how the auther dragged on about how she felt alone and that it was 'tearing' her apart. There were some speeling errors and I still loved it. GIVE THIS BOOK A CHANCE
