Goodreads Synopsis:
**Mature Content Warning** 17+ for language and sexual content.           (A re-imagining of my young adult book, The Fallen Star, told as a New Adult Paranormal)

For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.

Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.

Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.

Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.

As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.


 
Gemma's story is one a person who has lived their entire life completely devoid of any emotion, I mean the poor girl has never felt anything!

"For as longs as I can remember, I've never been able to feel any emotion, Sadness, happiness, love; they are all just words to me."

Then one day, completely by surprise, Gemma begins to cry. After that, various emotions begin to hit her overtime as she continues as a senior at the local university. With these new emotions, Gemma begins to have nightmares and dreams about individuals she has never met.

One day at the university, Gemma runs into a fellow student who reminds her of one of the men from her dreams/nightmares. With her new found emotions, Gemma finds herself drawn to Alex like no one else. She also becomes slightly involved with Aslin, Alex' sister.

As she continues to be around Alex, she can't stop the desire to touch him, be around him.

"I want more-need more. I'm confused by my thoughts and what my body wants. It's like i've been starving for years, nearly dying of hunger, and his kisses are finally satisfying the ever-growing starvation."

As Gemma, Alex and Aslin continue to be around each other through a joint class and assigment, Gemma begins to learn that Alex may know more information regarding her past then let on.

This book takes you on a bit of a rollercoaster with an interesting storyline of what special powers Gemma has and what Alex/Aslin may know about.

"I don't know a lot of things yet, but I have a feeling I will, soon enough, because the truth is catching up to me, like a rushing wave about to take me down."

Check this book out if you like your paranormals with a bit of steam and spice!
