I read a lot of books. This is me, writing about them.

The Passion - L.J. Smith
Back at the lab, captured like animals, Kaitlyn and her friends must face the true meaning of what the link means, and what their lineage is. They also have the fight of their lives on their hands, as Dr. Xetes does his best to do them in. But the real question for Kaitlyn is: Rob or Gabriel? Sunlight or darkness? Kait has to search her heart for the answer.
When I sat down to write this review, I realized how little I have to say about the book that I didn't already say in my reviews of The Strange Power and The Possessed. The plot is exciting but not particularly original, the characters are interesting and do develop to a reasonable extent, and the romance is rather (in my opinion, of course) trite. Just reading the above blurb, which I got from the author's website, kind of wants to make me throw up in my mouth. Fortunately, the actual book does not focus as much on romance as the blurb indicates - if it did, I don't think I would enjoy these books at all. As it is, I enjoyed the books, but I seriously doubt that I will ever re-read them, and while I'd recommend them to fans of paranormal romance or Twilight, I wouldn't strongly recommend them to anyone else. If they sound like you'd enjoy them, you probably would; otherwise, stay away.
