Review: Unresisting by Shane Morgan

Unresisting - Shane Morgan
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
I have read a couple of Ms. Morgan's new adult contemporary novels and enjoyed them, so I was very excited for a chance to read Unresisting. I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. The novel starts off with a bang (well, a crash) that is rather heart-wrenching, before we settle into the story and get to know main character Nat.
Nat lost her twin brother in a car crash right at the beginning of the book. He wasn't dead but gone, disappeared in a ball of fire. Not only that, but fire burned from Nat's hands right before the accident. She was confused, her parents thought she was delusional due to her brother's disappearance/death. I liked Nat, she was a touch sarcastic internally which I enjoyed. She also was quite accepting of people and their flaws which I found refreshing. Nat was on a quest to discover what happened to her, and Chace seemed to have some answers she desperately needed.
Chace had that whole loner, dark and brooding male thing going for him... but more on the creepy side rather than sexy. The way he acted when he first met Nat was, hmm, strange-- yes, let's go with strange. In fact the two of them together are the poster children for strange. I liked it, made the story more entertaining. As it turned out they were just so into each other it made for some very awkward scenes. Then there was the third in this love triangle, Jesse, who I started out disliking but warmed up to as the story progressed. I'm not much for love triangles though, so I'm going to stop there.
Unresisting is quite fast-paced and interesting. The plot was different from other paranormals, including Nat's abilities-- I found the whole thing rather intriguing. The mystery and twisting story kept me turning the pages. The ending was a tad unexpected which was good. It will definitely make the reader crave the next book in the series.
