Blog Tour: Taken by Surprise by Jessica Frances

New Adult Paranormal Romance
Date Published: 9/5/2013

Five strangers scattered across America have three things in common with each other. 

One: They each have special abilities that shouldn’t be possible. 

Two: They’ve all just had people try to kill them. 

Three: They’ve all just been kidnapped and taken away from their home, families and friends. 

Their lives will never be the same as they’re taken to a government facility and told that their abilities mean that they must train to become soldiers and fight. But are they being told the truth? Or is something more sinister going on? They must learn to trust each other and decide if they should stay on this path or run away from it. Either way there is no going back.

My Review:

New Adult/Romantic Suspense/Paranormal(TimeTravel)... what more could you ask for? 

I think that the Author has done a great job of creating a unique novel in a genre that is bogged down with the same book different writer syndrome. Jessica Frances has managed to separate herself from others and beyond it being unique, it was a very well written story. 

At times it did feel very much like a first in a series in the aspect that so much new information is being given to the reader. I can see this not being an issue in future novels in the series. 

There are many characters and I think it is a testament to the writing ability that she manages to create connections between the reader and each of them.

I am looking forward to the next books and the evolution of the relationships and the characters themselves. 


Born and raised in South Australia, Jessica spends her days working in a bakery, afternoons catching up on lost sleep, and nights reading and writing. Writing has always been a passion of hers, however it wasn’t until Zoe appeared into her head and wouldn’t leave that she finally was able to put a story down and finish it. After writing three books, she is wondering if she should start charging Zoe and her friends rent.
