{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Revive - By Tracey Martin


Author: Tracey Martin 
Release Date: 5/19/15 
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N  
What the mind forgets, the heart remembers.

Alone in a train station bathroom, Sophia Hernandez has no memory of who she is or how she got there. All she’s certain of are three things: her college ID is a lie, bad people are coming for her, and no one can be trusted.

The only clue to her past is the fellow student who finds her. Although Sophia’s gut tells her Kyle is lying when he claims he can’t help her, his touch makes her heart race. Is it because of a red-hot natural attraction, or a missing memory of something far more dangerous?

As two mysterious, menacing men chase them from the station, Sophia’s memories return in frustrating fragments. So do deadly skills she didn't know she had. In the next forty-eight hours, a loved one’s life will be on the line as she sifts through a mounting tangle of secrets and lies.

Including the most heart-wrenching secret of all. Not only isn’t she a normal college student, she isn’t even a normal human.

*Warning: Contains one girl who is more than she seems, one boy who knows more than he’s telling, and enough twists to give you whiplash. Expect explosions of all kinds.*

Beautiful Mash-Up!

What a fanastic way to mix together multiple genre types.It was SyFy, contemporary, romance with a splash of different!

As you meet Sophia you're instantly drawn to that mysterious factor she carries that, at first, revolves around her not knowing who she is. Then as the novel carries on and she starts discovering things, having flashbacks, she realizes there's more to her than her GPA. As the plot went on I will have to say the author did a fabulous job of hiding at the twists. Sometimes there's so much that's foretold you can almost pin-point when twists are coming, but fortunately for Tracey she has a knack for hiding them like a pro.

Throughout the entire book the story is told from 2 different POV's, it was honestly a little strange at first since I'm not use to that style, but it stuck with me after the first few chapters. With each chapter that passed we got to see a little more into Sophia's past, her flashbacks made me feel like I was there with her. My heart ached for her at times, I could only imagine the emotional roller coaster that she embarked on after someone tried to kill her. 

I'm really hoping that the next book in this series takes each character to a new level, there's so much room for growth & development that it truly excites to me read the next one.



About the Author:

Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.

She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets. You can find her online at tracey-martin.com.

Great review! This sounds like a fun read and I've always been a fan of dual POV books I find you can really get to know the characters even moreso. Glad you liked it! :)
