The Athena Effect by Derrolyn Anderson

The Athena Effect by Derrolyn Anderson

Book Description

Country girl Cali has been kept a secret her entire life, raised in isolation by two very troubled people. Despite her parent’s disturbing fits, Cal is perfectly content to live as one with the nature that surrounds her, finding adventure inside the pages of her beloved books. When an awful tragedy tears her away from her remote cabin in the woods, nothing she’s ever read has prepared her for a world that she knows very little about.

Girls and motorcycles are what bad-boy Cal’s life is all about. Brought up in a raucous party house by his biker brother, he’s free to do as he pleases, going through the motions on his final days of high school. Aimless, Cal stopped thinking about his future a long time ago.

Attacked by a gang of thugs while running an errand for his brother, Cal is in serious trouble until a fierce girl appears out of nowhere to intervene. She chases off three grown men, sparing Cal a brutal beating before disappearing into the night like a spirit. He can’t stop thinking about his mysterious rescuer, and when she turns out to be the weird new girl at school who goes out of her way to avoid him, he can’t contain his curiosity.

He’s never met anyone like her before, and the more he learns about the unusual girl who shares his nickname, the more he wants to know. Cal can’t help falling for Cal, but can he keep her from falling victim to a dangerous enemy from her parent’s tragic past?

Brenda's Review

WOW, WOW, WOW.... Did I say WOW?? What an amazing story! I was so engrossed in this story that I could not put it down! The characters are just pure awesome and you fall in love them. Caledonia (Cally- Cal) is an outstanding character all in herself! She captured me right from the start of the story.She is a loving girl that has been hidden away for most of her life.With all good reasons that I will not reveal,(You just have to read this amazing book!!)

Caledonia is shipped off to live with her Aunt. An aunt she never even knew she had.She's thrown into a school system,something totally new to her.Because she was home schooled by her parents and lived in the sticks and was used to hunting for her dinners and fighting off wild animals. The city life and school was all new to her.

Then she meets Cal (Calvin) the "Beautiful Idiot" as she referred to him. Cal tries hard to gain her trust and to learn her name.(Which I thought a funny part of the book)Cal and Cally become close and fall in love with each other after many trials.Only to be split apart after her kiddnapping....

Okay, Okay.... I'm going stop there. I don't want to blow the whole story for ya! Anyway, I totally fell in love with this story!! I HIGHLY recomend you read it!!
