Blog Tour: Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

/>

I will have a Review, Excerpt and Giveaway. First let's get to know the Author! 


Alyssa Rose Ivy lives in North Carolina with her husband
and two young children. Although raised in the New York
area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New
Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student,
she turned back to her creative side and decided to write.





Synopsis:

Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save 

My Rating:

My Review:

Allie is the type of girl who everyone sees as having it all "together". In reality, Allie is just trying to make it through a life that seems to have been planned for her and she needs to stop getting involved with the WRONG guy!

Levi is the epitomy of the WRONG guy! She has an undeniable attraction to him and "chance" meetings keep bringing them together.

First of all, I want to throw this out there. Levi is a JERK! OMG I don't know how you can like someone so much but at the same time want to smack them every time something comes out of their mouth, but that is how I felt about Levi. LOL I was right there with Allie every time she told him to get lost but didn't really want him to leave. How conflicting the emotions were in this book, and it all felt so real! That being said, the evolution of Levi in this story was perfect. He is that character you grow to love even more than you thought you could. ; ) 

The premise of this story is so unique and I loved the fact that it was in my fave genre... Upper YA! There is  mystery, plenty of surprises, and a great romance. I am definitely looking forward to book #2!


Excerpt

Closing my eyes, I tried to block it all out. Convinced I was about to die, I
was only partly aware of his arms around me.
“You said you wanted an adventure,” he said quietly, teasingly, as he
tightened his hold.
My stomach dropped out as an intense and complete feeling of
weightlessness engulfed me. The wind stung my face as memories flooded my
mind. I thought of my parents, of all the things I wanted to tell them but never did,
my friends from home, and the experiences I longed for. Quickly my thoughts
changed to more recent memories, to Levi.
“Open your eyes,” he whispered, somehow knowing my eyes were
clenched shut.
Against my better judgment, I listened. The scream died in my throat as
we hurtled toward the water that had seemed so beautiful from the roof above.
