I consider myself to be very blessed. One reason is because I have gotten to know so many fantastic authors on a more personal level through Facebook. One of those authors is Tiffany King. Tiffany is truly a kind and generous person. I have read a number of books by Tiffany and was so excited to read Jordyn when it came out!

Check, check, check, check…That’s all my life is. There’s nothing ordinary about me. I’m “special.” I know this because I’m reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon’s ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can’t do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can’t just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I’m no longer some anomaly, where I don’t have to feel like a lab rat.
And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren’t the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you’ve ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn’t treat me like a project.
I’ve got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities, and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn’t sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What’s a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.
I haven’t read a paranormal book in a while so I was a bit nervous when starting this one. I love the genre but I wasn’t sure what to expect. Tiffany did not disappoint though. This book was wonderful.
Jordyn is our main female character. Her witty dialogue makes for a very fun read. She talks how I would expect a smart-alleck teen to talk. Her “truth” cracked me up time and again. Her sarcasm reminded me of myself at times. I just felt like she would be my friend. I felt bad for Jordyn though. I can’t imagine living my life the way she has. Basically she woke up and had no idea who she was or where she came from. Can you even think about how that would be? To have no memory of parents, siblings, friends; to have no memories at all? I can’t and it makes me ache for the person that Jordyn is now and I understand her need to rebel against her “elders”, who are merely a few years older than her. I would be doing the same thing. I was kind of expecting her to be non-human but wasn’t quite prepared for how it all went down.
Emrys. The man you want to dislike but can’t help but love, Emrys. I wanted to hold his hand and have him whisk me away. I wanted to go sit on top of buildings or beaches with him. I mean, who wouldn’t love someone who could take you away from everything stressing you out?!? I wanted to not like him. I did. Tiffany made him seem like he was a bad guy and, I think he really is in ways. But, he fell for Jordyn and I fell for him. I love that he stuck up for her and that he was willing to act “normal” for her. It gave me hope for who he could be. Darn it if it didn’t all go to hell though. Frick (as Jordyn would say)!
I really enjoyed Jordyn. It grabbed my attention and I couldn’t put it down. Darn it, I was up until 2am reading this book! I often freak out when I am reading series books because I don’t like the suspense of waiting. Thank you Tiffany for not leaving it as a huge cliffhanger. I can still get some sleep while waiting for the next book. That said, I want the next book. I need to know what happens with Jordyn and Emrys. I need more Emrys. He is the ultimate bad-boy and I just want to have more of him. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy, fun read. It is not hot and steamy and could be read by teens; classified as young adult and I see no problems there. Don’t be afraid of this being part of a series because it ends in a way you can handle waiting for book two. Great job Tiffany on this fabulous read! I really enjoyed it. Now, how long until book two again?
This book was gifted to me by my dear friend Andrea. I want to give one of you this fabulous read too! I will give one winner an e-copy of Jordyn for you to read. All I ask is that you give a review on Amazon, B&N, and/or Goodreads!

I love this genre of books!! I read constantly!
Q: have you ever read anything in the paranormal genre?
A: Oh boy, have I ever!!! My top three genres are, and always have been, paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, and historical fiction. (Also read a lot of mystery/thriller books too.) In the past year or so, I’ve been especially heavy on paranormal, with SFF coming in a close second. I would, therefore, love to read Jordyn!! I’ve got several of Tiffany’s books, though I still haven’t had a chance to read one yet (*wince*), and I’ve heard amazing things about her writing from bloggers whose reviews and judgment I really trust. This book sounds great to me, so thank you for the chance to win a copy! Have a great week 🙂

I have read a lot of books in this category, this actually reminded me to go see if Book 2 has come out for my favorite one yet. Even if I don’t win, I thank you for the book recommendation. I am always looking for new books to read.
