Happy Friday my lovely bookish friends and welcome to my Blog Tour Stop for Perfect Pitch by Alex Hayes. This tour is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours and I’ll be sharing my review for this weird, fun, and entertaining sci-fi romance.
Publication date: August 6th 2019
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
All Dean wants is to escape…
But he can’t leave his younger brother, Ty, in the care of their alcoholic mother. And when their abusive father shows up, Dean has to get Ty out. Which means joining Shri — his best and only friend — in taking a job out of state and breaking the law by stealing his brother away.
Cadi’s life is almost back together after Dean blew it into a million pieces. She’s come to terms with her life as a shape-shifter — well, almost. She’s still trying to wrap her head around the fact that a vicious enemy is out to destroy the remnants of her people.
As if Cadi doesn’t have enough to deal with, Dean’s about to land on her front doorstep, forcing her to decide whether to let him into her secret world or slam the door in his face.
The Chameleon Effect series, starring shape-shifter teens with extraordinary superpowers, is sure to appeal to Young Adult and New Adult readers who enjoy romance with a paranormal twist.
An imaginative, thrilling, and addictive sci-fi romance
A unique and intriguing sci-fi romance, Perfect Pitch by Alex Hayes will have readers engrossed and wildly entertained until the very end.
Idris and Cadi finally know who they really are and where they come from. They’re shapeshifting aliens with extraordinary powers who are bonded for life. After closing the wormhole and confessing to their foster parents, Idris and Cadi finally begin to feel at home. But, with their enemies relentlessly hunting their kind, Idris and Cadi will never be truly safe. Will they be prepared and strong enough to protect each other and save everyone they love from whatever danger that comes their way?
I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel and if I’m being honest, I actually like it way more than the first book. It is still a little weird, but that’s one of the things I love that about this series. I think the storyline is original, imaginative, enthralling and absolutely addictive. I really like the world-building, the writing is fantastic, the plot is fast-paced, and there are some amazing feels in this book. The characters are charming and loveable. Idris and Cadi are super adorable together and I’ll ship them forever. Their chemistry definitely becomes more intense and there are a few steamy scenes. I wasn’t too fond of Dean before, but he completely won me over. Ty and Pepper are just too cute and I’ll protect them till the end. Shri is fiesty and my kind of girl. I love Cadi’s foster parents and what they’re doing for her truly warmed my heart. Overall, I think this story is well-written and fabulous! I truly enjoyed going on this fun and wonderful sci-fi adventure and I totally can’t wait to read more from this series.
Packed with plenty action, humor, family conflict, relationship drama, heartwarming moments, and a swoony romance, Perfect Pitch by Alex Hayes had me glued to the pages. I really can’t rave about this enough so if you love sci-fi, fantasy, and romance, then I think you should definitely add this series on your TBR.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for participating in a Blog Tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Idris Williams’ life may seem perfect…
Sure, Idris has confidence and great looks, a famous father and a beautiful girlfriend. Life would be perfect if he could dodge the bullet his father has aimed at his head — following dear old Dad into motivational-speaking stardom. But there doesn’t seem to be a way out…
— Until Idris morphs into something green and scaly.
Cadi has finally found a safe and loving home. Then a malicious boy turns her whole world upside down. The next thing she knows, she’s wandering the streets on New Year’s Eve, alone.
— Until a crystal leads her to this lizard boy with a smart mouth and massive ego.
To change Idris back into his sexy human self, Cadi must reveal a secret she’s been holding close to her heart for as long as she can remember. A secret that will send them racing to close a wormhole ahead of a deadly army.
A secret that could change their worlds forever…
I’m not completely in love with this book, but it’s definitely an amusing and delightfully weird story. I also think it’s incredibly imaginative and I was intrigued by the paranormal aspects and the world-building. The writing is captivating and I really enjoyed the flow of the story. With fascinating and likable characters, lighthearted humor, an adorable romance, and plenty of thrills, Silken Scales is a fantastically fun read.
