Strength is a story that follows a girl named Rena and her life in college. Rena is off to meet one of her best friends, Aiden. But she is afraid to since his next door neighbor is called the madman on campus. Every night the "madman" would scream and cause a raucous in his room. No one knows why, but people have made their own speculations. They think he is a killer or something. But after one day of accidentally bumping into the crazy guy, named Wallace, after also calling him crazy, Rena wants to know why people have called him crazy and takes the chance to get to know him. She quickly finds out that Wallace really isn't crazy. As a matter of fact, he is freaking perfect. But he does have one secret - he may not be human. And Rena may have stumbled into something she may not be prepared for.

Oh my goodness. I want the sequel like yesterday. I loooooooved this book so much. Everything fit just right for me. I loved Rena. She had me laughing and she had guts. She was stubborn and willing to do what she can to help people. I love how she never gives up on Wallace even though everyone was afraid of him. Even when she was in difficult situations, I never felt like she was a damsel in distress. She kept her head on straight and did all she could to save herself. I love this chick, she definitely has earned a spot on the "great kicka** heroines" list.

And then we have Wallace. Oh God, Wallace. He is definitely one of my favorite book boyfriends. Oh my goodness, can I clone him somehow? He was sexy and sweet. He was hot, but he tried his best to stay away from people giving his incredible amount of strength and his past. He is really haunted by it and it has made him quite the recluse.

My favorite line in this book was "All because I fell in love with a madman" Wallace is all of that and more! Rena is getting herself into something deep and she is going to be up to her neck and to a point of no return before she knows it. Rena is level headed for the most part she sticks to her routine and her friends Gabby and Aiden. More often then not though she is in Aiden's dorm room because Gabby has theirs "occupied" with the orange scrunchie on on the door handle to make Rena aware that she is entertaining company. Aiden's dorm suite mate is talked about throughout the dorm. Rena has been told there is screaming and pounding coming from his room nightly and no one can explain it. Rena takes charge after being witness to the racket one night and takes charge. From that day on Rena can't shake him. he is everywhere she is and their bond and his secrets are just starting to bubble to the surface and before Rena will know what is going on she will be too far in to take a step back and remove herself. I want to keep reading I was so sad when my kindle wouldn't let me flip to the next page because sadly I was at 99%. Mark of Nexus book 1 kept me wanting more there was never a dull moment and I had a hard time setting it down. This book is a great read I am pretty sure it touched pretty much all of my emotions somewhere between the beginning and the end. I cannot wait for book 2

3.5 stars!

When I heard about this blog tour I jumped to be a part of it. I've had my eyes on this book for a while and I knew it'd be good.

Rena. I just didn't like her much. She's rude, judgmental, nosy and just annoying. There were times when I would like her but then she'd do something that just annoyed me all over again. I know that a lot of people loved Rena but from the beginning I just didn't like her and it seems like she just didn't redeem herself much throughout the book. The thing that made me dislike Rena from the beginning was the fact that Rena and her group of friends judged Wallace and they didn't even know him. Honestly they just sounded ignorant and it pissed me off that they believed such stupid rumors and acted like he was a serial killer or something. What's worse is that THEY are the ones who started the whole rumor to begin with based off of something one of their friends said. I'm sorry but Rena just came off like she thought she was better then everyone else and I had to take off a star because she kind of ruined this book for me.

Wallace is really sweet, not to mention really good looking. It sucks that he doesn't have many friends but he's actually a really cool guy. He even goes to church which I though was kind of random but whatever. He's obviously hiding something and I'll admit, I was really intrigued by the way he acted.

For me, the paranormal aspect was the best part about this book and it's what kept me reading when I felt like putting it down. It's definitely different then anything I've ever read before and I loved how it was played out in this book. So much happens and I can't wait to see what happens next in this series.

Overall I liked this book. It wasn't what I thought it would be and there wasn't much romance but it was still good and I look forward to reading more.

Total 5 stars. It kept my attention.. and believe me that is a difficult task. The book kept moving, a few parts were too targic for my liking but thatis what makes the good parts so much better. Surviving the bad stuff makes good stuff so much better.. and there was some "good stuff" in this book. I won't go into any of my spacific likes and dislikes (I don't want to spoil anything) but it was an amazing book. Def time well spent.
