Curse of the Chupacabra!!!! :) and Zak and Mia

Zac and MiaZac and Mia by A.J. Betts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis The last person Zac expects in the room next door is a girl like Mia, angry and feisty with questionable taste in music. In the real world, he wouldn’t—couldn’t—be friends with her. In hospital different rules apply, and what begins as a knock on the wall leads to a note—then a friendship neither of them sees coming. You need courage to be in hospital; different courage to be back in the real world. In one of these worlds Zac needs Mia. And in the other Mia needs Zac. Or maybe they both need each other, always Review: I really enjoyed this story, I was worried how this was going to end especially dealing with cancer. Both characters going through this life changing situation and both handling it very differently.

We have Zak post marrow transplant surgery and on his way to recovery in the hospital, confined to his room. Zak is such a sweet, smart 17 year old guy, he believes in numbers or statistics then in faith. Then there is Mia a 17 year old girl new to the hospital and in denial about her situation, she is angry with everyone and pushes everyone away. Zac feels for her and doesn't understand why she is so angry, her odds are great, after he goes home and carries on with life he still wonders how Mia is doing and if she is okay.

Well Mia is not doing good, she goes on this downward spiral of lies and stealing and eventually runs away and ends up finding Zac. He is there for her and helps her through this, but then life throws this curve ball at him and he is the one needing the help. I was not liking Mia much, she was a brat and a bit selfish, but she grew on me, we see her grow and mature, she starts to see life differently and realizes how self centered she was.

Its crazy how we see Mia needing someone there for her, then it flips and its Zak needing someone, they basically needed each other. We see this great friendship develop between them. The ending was sad but not a way you think, we really do not know how it truly ends, but I liked that they Mia did not give up on Zak.

This book was gifted to me by Netgalley.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis They never thought their luck would be their curse. In the months following the onslaught, the extraordinary survivors continue to know no peace, as they are haunted by signs that the relentless creature remains on their trail. However, this fight will be better matched, now that they’ve discovered an advantage that will help protect them from the monster’s bloodthirsty lust. But once faced with the decision to kill the beast, the choice will not come lightly since it is still unclear which loved one the chupacabra possesses Review I want to thank the author for gifting me this book for a honest review.

This is the second installment in the Chupacabra series and it did not disappoint. This one continues on with Suzanne and Jessie barley escaping the Chupacabra, both wondering who is the Chupacabra now if its Jessie's father or uncle. Suzanne decides that she can not raise Jessie and hands her over to another family to raise her. Of course Jessie doesn't want this and is upset with Suzanne. I really enjoyed reading about these two characters in this book. Both have sufferd greatly being on their own. Things do not seem to be getting any better for them apart or together. We get introduced to a new group of characters some good and some not. I really liked James and Dale, I was hoping more of James and Suzanne. The romantic in me wants some more romance in a Western Horror book. I cant help it, Suzanne deserves her happy ending. We start this see this motherly side to Suzanne and she will probably end up taking on the job of raising Jessie. We get some good interaction with the Chupacabra, not as much as in the first book, he seemed different in this book for some reason. We do discover some new interesting news on the Chupacabra. The ending was sad again for me in this book. But thanks again. Still reading the third installment and will be posting my review on that one too. Cant wait to find out how it all ends :)
