Riley Ford’s brilliant, fast-paced Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy will not soon leave my memory. “Into You” deals with real teen problems in a fun way. From the first page this novel is UN-PUT-DOWN-ABLE! The novel is packed with humor and heartache, romance and betrayal, life and death. The author is abundant in talent, as evidenced by this debut novel, and I immediately connected with the voice! Winter Reynolds (complete with her unique paranormal kissing-gift) is a multi-faceted young adult character, but the depth of character does not end there. Her best friend, Miranda, and even Miranda’s quirky-but-judgmental parents, are also fully-developed. Jason aka Stumblemyer makes for a fantastic and realistic male lead. This character-driven paranormal mystery is packed with emotion and the twists in the story will shock and surprise you. And what better way to explore coming of age than to show the point in one’s life where they begin to weigh their personal desires against ensuring the well-being of others? I can’t wait to see more from this author . . . I am a fan-girl already!

In her debut novel, Into You, Riley J Ford takes an interesting premise and turns it into one heckuva good book. The writing is sharp. The characters are well developed. The story moves along at a crisp pace. There's a ton of humor in this book: just-plain-funny humor; dark humor; romantic humor; even tragic humor. If Ford was out to showcase how well she can master the subtle nuances between them, she can color me convinced. But it isn't all fun and games. Sure, there's a murder to solve, but Ford's story really delves into some dark and weighty places along the way that make the murder seem somewhat tame in comparison (at least until the murder is later described). Although readers will be satisfied with the ending, Into You isn't all sunshine and lollipops, with a cute little HEA to top it off. And kudos to Ford for that. There's no valid reason for YA and/or paranormal romance books to habitually and systematically ignore all of the realities of teenage life except for the angst ... yet it happens far too often. Into You is a well written, wonderful read that I highly recommend to YA, PNR, and teen mystery fans.

Intriguing book about a girl who can read minds when she kisses people. Unique premise with some very funny and witty moments. There's also an intriguing mystery that had me guessing. Best of all was the love story. I love how it ended. Highly recommend!

This is an extremely funny YA book about a girl who must use her new found gift, or curse, to help solve the murder of a fellow member of the high school track team. This is a coming of age story that any teenage, high school girl should read. It is well written, funny, dramatic, and full of twists and turns. I highly recommend this title to anybody. If you want a good book to take a break from reality for a minute, then this is the book for you. I look forward to reading Riley J. Ford's other works.

The synopsis of this book really intrigued me. Telepathy only through kissing? That is a very interesting talent and feat to write. And then to use that particular trait to solve a murder? Talk about complicated! I like how even though this is classed as paranormal, the characters are relate-able. Their actions and reactions are accurate to the way a teenager would behave. Well, unless you count the psycho murderer, he's not a normal guy, but then, he IS a sociopath. Not only are the characters portrayed as believable people, I love that their language and behavior wasn't dumb-ed down, like so many Young Adult(YA) books are done these days, and the writing appropriate for the targeted audience. I read a lot of YA, and the dark aspects of this book were not off-putting, the right amount of graphic and censor, (I'm talking about the murder and details of the murder from the killer's perspective.) That being said, I connected with Winter right away. The comedy and seriousness of the situation dug into my attention rather immediately. I found it harder and harder to put down, especially once Jason showed up on stage. I experienced their emotions right along with them and never felt out of key. Miranda's actions occasionally got on my nerves because of connection I felt with Winter and being annoyed on her behalf. On maybe two occasions did I find myself confused about elapsed time. That was the only hitch I had in reading, it took me a bit to catch on that it was this or that much time gone by. But this is really a very mild complaint, and did not effect my reading enjoyment or ability to understand what was going on. Overall, this book gets 5 stars from me because I did not have to talk myself into reading it at any point during the story. It caught my attention and kept it until the end. (And being unable to put it down I did go to bed way too late, stopping only when my eyes refused to be open any longer.)

Into You by Riley J. Ford takes a humorous concept and quickly turns into a twisty murder mystery. I kept getting frustrated with some of the peripheral characters, then a few pages later, the main characters were also getting frustrated. It was like Ford was inside my head. This one was really well done. Don't let the premise fool you, the story line works with these characters.
