    I am a touch puzzled by the outpouring of five star ratings for Kissing Amanda , as it is not a good book.The premise is fairly simple, and fun when executed well two people, bound together by fate destiny whatever, find themselves battling the forces of Evil The main character goes on a journey of life, love, and contemplates happiness while growing as a person and into an adult In this particular case, and happily, the main characters are helped in their quest against the Baddies by their supernatural natures, which frankly should be pretty awesome.This book comes unstuck however, in how jerky the development of nearly everything is The plot and relationships both suffer severely from the uneven pacing It s like everything sticks endlessly on a minor certain point while the resolution to important conceits move bewilderingly quickly The novel never really unfolds the two characters and their relationship, leaving it feeling half baked On that note, the author clearly wishes to leave the audience invested in the mystery, and therefore makes Amanda frustratingly poor at explaining anything This backfires seriously Amanda often appears to deliberately leave her supposed true love, who happens to be also a powerful yet ignorant ally only just enough information to totally piss her off, without developing anything useful for either her or the reader.I truly did want to like this book it should have been a fun, easy read suitable for teens and pandering to a desire for fluff Instead it is blocky and difficult I cannot recommend this book.

    This book was awesome I don t usually read anything with gore but this one was a good book I couldn t put it down especially with Amanda and her soul mate it was just wow Learned about darklings,lightings, and one another I love the fact it is a lesbian novel too been waiting for one to come out, this author is terrific with details hopefully the second one is just as good I am glad to also to be the first one for a review on here.

    2.5 stars, but I feel it s worthy of rounding up rather than down I wanted to love this book I really did Don t get me wrong I did like it and there were aspects of Kissing Amanda that I truly enjoyed, but I just found it lacking in certain spots The premise of 2 people being soulmates and finding each other is nearly always lovely to read about Add in the fact that they are both supernatural beings, but one does not know what she is and she soon must face off against an evil she just learned exists and you can color me intrigued.The two main characters of Kissing Amanda are Kate and Amanda Kate is the Brightling who doesn t even know what a Brightling is and Amanda knows who and what she is and had come to finally link with her soulmate and start battling the evil that is the Darklings While there are things I enjoy about these two characters separately, I do not buy them as a couple let alone a couple that is destined to be together They just didn t mesh for me I felt no real chemistry other than what I was told they felt or what they verbalized to each other It was weird Especially, considering that they are a lesbian couple, and while literature is expanding to include gay lesbian couples as main characters, I simply felt there could have been so much to them and their relationship to make it feel believable The other characters while only present for short periods of time thus far, needed fleshed out for my taste in reading, but they were interesting enough to make me want , which says a lot.The action and supernatural elements were well done I rather enjoyed reading about some of Kate s training on how she is to access her abilities Of course then she is really put to the test by being confronted by a Darkling or two who know what they are doing Darklings have the ability to take on a smoky form if they are very powerful Darklings This added a creep factor that I greatly look forward to of.Now, I will admit I do have a bit of an issue with trilogy s because many times I feel a trilogy could formatted into just one book or maybe 2 The first book is always the getting the ball rolling for the main storyline and introducing your characters, which I get, but if not done well it can come off as rather boring to a reader who knows that they will get to the end merely to find out they have to wait for book 2 Kissing Amanda is not boring, but it definitely makes me happy knowing that I have book 2 waiting for me to read now rather than 2 months from now, because again, while I enjoyed the story characters quite a bit, I do not know if I would have it in me to wait 2 months and for book 2 and then 3 after that.Ultimately, Kissing Amanda was a fun read that I have no problem continuing further into the trilogy and definitely feel is worth reading, but for most readers I would suggest waiting until the whole set it out and picking them up together so you do not have to wait between books I will be starting book two Missing Amanda very soon, so look for that review to come with additional thoughts on how the two books work together.

    I wanted to like this story, the main premise was interesting and at the start I liked both leads As the book wore on though that got harder Mostly because the premise set up that Amanda and Kate were soulmates fated to love each other but the last two thirds of the book have them mistrusting each other all the time Kate is constantly running from Amanda Amanda doesn t trust Kate s instincts I ve never read a book where one of the leads calls the other one a bitch and means it so many times.Also the whole Darklings Brightlings plot was convoluted and by the end I didn t care what happened to them, which isn t good in a story that s the first part of the series I won t be reading Missing Amanda I ll be Skipping Amanda instead.
