Blurb:  YA BOOK 1 (The Fallen Star):  For eighteen year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. Up until recently, she has been incapable of feeling emotion. And when she's around Alex, the gorgeous new guy at school, she can feel electricity that makes her skin buzz. Not to mention the monsters that haunt her nightmares have crossed over into real-life.

But with Alex seeming to hate her and secrets popping up everywhere, Gemma's life is turning into a chaotic mess. Things that shouldn't be real suddenly seem to exist. And as her world falls apart, figuring out the secrets of her past becomes a matter of life and death.

NA BOOK 1 (Shattered Promises): For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.

Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn't know whether to embrace them or run away from them.

Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma's skin like no one can. Yet she's drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She's also seen him before. In her nightmares.

**Review**:  This is a combined review of both the Young Adult Book (Fallen Star) and the New Adult (Shattered Promises).  These books are one in the same except the New Adult version, which I prefer, is set when she's a few years older so it was easier to write the steamy love scenes.  I highly recommend this series, whether you're under 17 and want YA or over 17 and want the NA version, they're both fantastic! 
Jessica Sorensen has a way of writing that captures your attention and pulls you in.  This book is filled with adventure, love, lust and everything else a great book should contain.  There are a few editing errors, but other than that and the fact that the main character Gemma can get annoying at times, I loved it!  And for the most part is FREE (except the YA version Fallen Star for the Nook is .99 cents).
