Abandoned by her birth parents and ignored by her adoptive family, Maddy Page believes she is unlovable. She only allows herself to dream of falling in love.

When Maddy witnesses MJ disappear and reappear in thin air, she realizes she might have been wrong about him. He could be dangerous--maybe even a killer. Determined to uncover the truth of who--or what--MJ is, Maddy ignores her instinct to run. But she soon realizes that getting close to MJ could cost more than a broken heart--it could cost Maddy her soul.

Unclaimed by Laurie Wetzel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"I'm unlovable. Even my birth parents didn't want me."
This is in dual POV of Maddy and MJ. Maddy has had dreams all her life and always felt different from her family till one day a few years ago, the truth came out. That day changed not only her life but the way she looked at the world itself. Maddy Page only dreams of love since in real life she believes she is unlovable.
Maddy then runs into some trouble and meets MJ, the mysterious person who has supernatural abilities she cannot explain. The day she runs into MJ is also when her dreams change, more secrets are revealed but she is tries to uncover the truth, danger comes her way. There is a lot of suspense and supernatural but I don't want to give anything away. Just read it and create your own imagination.
"A kiss is much more complicated than dancing. Kisses are the basis for every tragic love story. If I kiss him...I'll be hooked. I can't allow myself to fall for him, to fall for a nameless mystery."
The author will pull you into each page with Maddy as she goes through every emotional feeling. I felt the true heart break on each page and I also felt my heart skip a beat Maddys and MJs love for one another. This does end in cliffhanger and will get the next book in 2015. I recommend you watch and listen to Laurie Wetzel's video on her page as well. I truly commend this author on her debut album. I will create teasers for the blog tour later.
I received this ARC as a gift from the author in exchange for an honest review and for a blog tour. YA Paranormal is one of my favorite genres because it is an escape from not only the real world but also to use your imagination.

My entire body pulses in the wake of his touch. His words “if you were mine” keep circling around in my head, and with each rotation, something inside me grows. He makes me feel happy and less broken. I feel I could take on the world as long as he’s beside me. Whatever he is, I don’t care. I’ve never felt anything like this, and I’ll go to Hell and back to keep it. Regardless of what happens to me, I have to protect him. I have to keep him safe, always.
He grins and squeezes my hand again. My body responds with such intensity, I almost feel as if I were floating. I don’t want it to ever stop. I want to stay strong. I want to be brave. I want to feel safe. He gives me all of that. I want to hold him forever, even if it’s only his hand.
“Tomorrow,” he says, pulling me from my thoughts. “I’ll find a way to see you.”
My heart flutters. I really do like MJ. I blush and pop a few grapes into my mouth. As ecstatic as that makes me feel, I still don’t know, fully, if I can trust him—not until I know what he is. “So … you still haven’t answered my original question. Government experiment, superhero, or something else. Which is it?”
He sighs, shaking his head. “I wasn’t created in a lab somewhere.”
“What about an alien?”
“Wouldn’t that fall under the category of magician?”
“Magicians are usually fake. Warlocks and witches could be real. So are you one?”
Stumped, I rest my chin on my hand and huff in exasperation.
“Give up?” he asks.
“No. But I’ve made some good progress on my list.”
“You have a list?”
“Uh huh.” I toss a few more grapes into my mouth.
“Of what you think I might be?”
“I don’t suppose you could just let it go?”
I narrow my eyes at him. “If I did a bunch of crazy things that you couldn’t explain, would you let it go?”
He smirks and shakes his head. “You win.
“Now say if you had changed even one of those things, your destiny would be completely different.”
I know which fork I would choose to redo if I could. It’s the same one I’ve regretted time and time again. If I could go back, I would have never rejected his first kiss.
Damien smiles. “Say, for example, this alternate-reality dream of yours is one where we kissed the first night. Everything would have been different between us. However, it is
because you rejected my kiss that I looked at you differently. It is because you were sent away that I missed you. It is because you were promised to another man that I came there that night, which ultimately led to us being together now. As much as I wished we had kissed the first night, I am glad we did not. I, for one, like this path much better.”
Laurie Wetzel has always had a passion for writing, but it wasn’t until a New Years Resolution in 2011 that she finally shared her lifelong dream of being an author with her husband. He read the very first draft of Unclaimed and gave her the words she needed to hear, “This is what you need to be doing.” Three years later the first book in the Unclaimed series was published with the second book expected to be out in 2015. Laurie lives in Mankato, MN, with her husband and two young sons. When she’s not writing, working, or spending time with her family, she’s either reading, running, or catching up on her favorite shows on Netflix.
