A government experiment. Sixteen teenage boys on the run. An innocent young girl caught in the middle. When Ronnie Rose meets the handsome and alluring Kalen Smith, she can tell there's something he's hiding - something dangerous.

As You Were

For every choice, there is a consequence.

Ronnie and Kalen are finally together, living their life in secret under the radar of the people who want Kalen dead. But when a visit from an old friend sends Kalen away on a rescue mission, Ronnie finds herself plunged back into the world of Project Five Fifteen quicker than she ever thought possible.

It’s fast becoming clear The Agency will never give up their hunt for the boys, and a betrayal closer to home starts a chain reaction that will change everything. Now, caught in a deadly web of lies and deceit, Ronnie is forced to question who she can trust; even the person she once trusted most.

As enemies close in, Kalen’s past threatens to destroy the happiness they sacrificed so much for, and it’s only a matter of time before the ultimate choice must be made.

Samantha Summers

Born in London, an only child with an overactive imagination, Sam spent much of her childhood telling ghost stories to her younger cousins and dreaming about far away places. She graduated university with a BA in marketing, but it wasn't long before her passion for storytelling and travel got the better of her. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia, where you'll probably find her hidden away in the corner of a park somewhere - writing, reading, dreaming or watching movies on her iPad. She loves everything spy and assassin and has a slightly unhealthy obsession with Star Wars, mainly Darth Vader.

And now, check out my review of First Light.

My Rating


My Review

I rather enjoyed First Light. It was a relatively sweet YA romance with just a little bit of action packed in. The characters were rather interesting and real, and the pace of the book of the good. While I didn’t feel that the storyline was to die for, it was a pretty good introduction to this series.

Veronica, or Ronnie, as she likes to be called, is an independent girl. Yet, there’s just something about her that is vulnerable. From the start, I liked Ronnie. She was a rather witty character, and while not the most interesting of characters, she was real and I could relate to her. While there are parts of her I didn’t really like, generally she was a good female protagonist. Her character development was rather good and I could see her maturing as the book progressed.

Kalen on the other hand, was amazing. Mysterious, hot, dangerous. How could a girl not be instantly drawn to him? But I think what’s best was how he loved Ronnie. From everything he did, it just showed he cared. And that just made me smile. Because it showed even someone so strong can fall prey to the mighty power of love.

The side characters were also rather nice to read about. I liked that there weren’t too many characters to keep up with and that they weren’t neglected as the story progressed. We did see some bits of their character development and I look forward to reading much more about the boys. And for some reason, Laith. I just want to know more about him, there’s just something interesting about him.

One thing I would have liked was to see more of Kalen's past. Those teasers simply aren't enough! He is such an interesting character to read about, someone so mysterious that I simply want to learn more about him. You know, just try and figure him out.

I did enjoy the ending. I am curious as to how Ronnie and Kalen’s relationship will progress, especially now that she has realized how much she loves him. And her decision at the end is just going to make for a more interesting story in the second book, As You Were. This is a relatively easy read and a rather enjoyable one too.
