Perfect Pitch by Alex Hayes is a genre-defying NA/YA Paranormal Romance of aliens, shapeshifting, discovery, and a bit of romance.
“All Dean wants is to escape…
But he can’t leave his younger brother, Ty, in the care of their alcoholic mother. And when their abusive father shows up, Dean has to get Ty out. Which means joining Shri — his best and only friend — in taking a job out of state and breaking the law by stealing his brother away.
Cadi’s life is almost back together after Dean blew it into a million pieces. She’s come to terms with her life as a shape-shifter — well, almost. She’s still trying to wrap her head around the fact that a vicious enemy is out to destroy the remnants of her people.
As if Cadi doesn’t have enough to deal with, Dean’s about to land on her front doorstep, forcing her to decide whether to let him into her secret world or slam the door in his face.
The Chameleon Effect series, starring shape-shifter teens with extraordinary superpowers, is sure to appeal to Young Adult and New Adult readers who enjoy romance with a paranormal twist.”
This is one of those series that defies genres. I agree with the marketing that this could be a great story for both YA and New Adult readers. But not only that, we jump between Contemporary, Paranormal, and Scifi worlds.
This does create a bit of confusion at first trying to create the right world for the characters, but I don’t think it deterred too much from what was going on.
I really liked the character-building and the heritage the two main characters found themselves to have. If you are a fan of unique aliens, this book would be a great scifi twist to uncover while also having modern, contemporary elements.
Since this is the second book in the series, I don’t want to go too in-depth of what happens. This one does follow a different set of characters, but I feel like you need to read Book 1 before diving into this one for all the background information.
I gave each of the books 3 out of 5 stars. A great genre-defying series full of aliens, shapeshifting, discovery, and a hint of romance.
