Synopsis: What if everything you think you know . . . is wrong?
Cora is your average college freshman. Battling the evils of boring classes and noisy dorms, her greatest concern is how to attract the attention of the drool-worthy, party-god next door.
That is, until Kaden comes barging into her life, insisting everything she knows is false. The family and friends she grew up with don’t exist. Her entire past a carefully-crafted fabrication, created to replace the truth.
Her name isn’t Cora, it’s Cameron. And she isn’t from New York. She hails from Atlantis. Yeah, that Atlantis. Oh yeah, and she’s psychic.
Except, tall, dark, and out-of-his-ever-loving-mind doesn’t come alone. Trouble follows, thrusting Cameron back into a world she can’t remember and a life she must reclaim if they’re going to make it out alive.
I was really excited when the author told me about this book! I'm a big fan of her other books and I was looking forward to reading this one! Plus, I knew I definitely wanted to read this after I read the synopsis! It sounded amazing and so different! This book was so unique and it was written brilliantly! I completely loved it! The plot of Resisting Atlantis had a really unique concept to it, which I loved! I haven't read anything like it before! There was also a bit of a paranormal aspect to the plot, but it wasn't like full on paranormal and it didn't have paranormal creatures in it like vampires or werewolves! The plot also had quite a lot of suspense in it and it had a bit of action in it too, which are two things I love in the plot of a book! The plot kept me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next too, but I do have to say that sometimes the action slowed down, which made the plot drag on just a little! I loved it though and I really enjoyed where it went! The characters were amazing! Cameron 'Cora' was the main female character and she was kick-ass in this book! At the beginning of this book, she didn't have any idea of her background and her past, but she soon learns all about it and she takes it all in her stride! She was also determined, loyal and feisty, which are things I loved about her! Cameron did surprise me in this book because she started off being quite quiet and kept to herself and then the next minute she was ready to go into battle lol! I just loved Cameron and her personality! Kaden was the main male character and he was so hot and so protective of Cameron! I just adored him! I could also see that he had really strong feelings for Cameron and that he would do anything to make sure she stayed safe! My heart did go out to Kaden when this book went back and showed you how bad his life had been and how bad the environment he was raised in was! Kaden didn't let it change him though and what he had been through made him even more determined to get rid of the bad guys, who were just a bit too close to home ;) There were also quite a few secondary characters in this book and they all added a lot to the plot! I wasn't really expecting this book to be written from both Cameron and Kaden's point of views, but I really enjoyed it because it added a lot to the plot and I loved getting to see Cameron and Kaden's feelings for each other through both of their eyes! I'm really excited to read the next book in this series! This book exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next! The ending of this book also leaves it open for so much to happen in the next book, so I can't wait to see where the author's going to take it! The cover for this book is different to what I was expecting it to be, but I like it! It represents the book really well! Big thank you to Jamie for an ARC of Resisting Atlantis and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
