Book Tour: Five by Christie L. Rich Review


Rayla Tate’s life is about to turn vertical…again. As if it wasn’t bad enough her mother disappeared under questionable circumstances leaving Rayla to be raised by her aunt in a horrendously small town. Her overprotective guardian is determined to ruin Rayla’s life. She refuses to let Rayla out of her sight or out of the state. Provincial living might be what her aunt demands of her purposely sheltered niece; but, Rayla has other ideas. In a desperate attempt to follow her dreams she flees the safety of her home and runs away to college with her best friend toward a bright future in the art world.
However, excitement over her newfound freedom turns into terror when she is chased by a mysterious stranger on her way to school. When his motorcycle suddenly morphs into a fire-breathing pegasus, Rayla questions her sanity. Worse, the man riding next to her stirs a burning desire in her soul she has never known or could have ever imagined. Using all the will she owns, she manages to resist the compulsion she feels; yet, as he disappears into the night, she is certain he hasn't gone far.
Rayla quickly dismisses the encounter to her overactive imagination. She is determined to settle into her new life, yet the images and feelings of that night still haunt her. To make matters worse, her aunt seems to be in on the act, insisting that Rayla will soon be hunted by a pack of fae lords for a power over the elements she never knew she possessed—a power that could change the world. Quicker than she ever thought possible, she finds herself surrounded by stunning men that all seem determined to win her heart. Why does she feel drawn to each one of them? More importantly, what dark power do they hold over her? Rayla must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using whatever means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever.


Many be spoilers!
I really liked this book. The characters were great and easy to connect with. During many parts of the book, I would feel for and with Rayla. I felt frustrated and confused when her aunt said she couldn’t go to the college she wanted just because she wanted her close (not close in the loving and caring way). I really liked Zach. He was interesting and loveable. But I felt like he betrayed Rayla, just because he came at her from a different angle than his brothers. Instead of just trying to take her, he became her friend (and more) to get close to her. Well I guess he did try to take but it didn’t work. I would have freaked out on him when I found out if I was her, but she didn’t. Maybe because she was tired of all the crazy? One thing that would have driven me crazy was having a friend like Cassie, who wouldn’t always tell me what was going on and always hiding things.
The plot of this book was great. There were twists that suddenly showed up and threw you a different direction! Love it! I will be reading the next one.
4.5/5 Stars.

Author Bio: 

I grew up daydreaming about fairytales, and my love for discovering new worlds has never died. I am not one of those writers who always knew I would write. I thought that was what other people did until one day a few years ago, I took a challenge from a friend and typed my first words. My journey has been wonderful, and I cannot imagine a day where I would ever give up writing now. My love for reading is what fueled my imagination in the first place and still does. When I am not writing or reading, I am enjoying family time with my husband and two children. We live in a quiet community under the Wellsville mountains in Utah, and I am so thankful for the rich life I have been blessed with.
