Book Description:

From the Inside Flap

"Come, sit," he says, his fingers curling gently around the tips of mine. 

I plop down on the beanbag beside him and yelp. 

"You are hurt." He frowns. "Let me take a look." 

He scrunches the edge of my shirt, but I clamp down on his hand. There's no way I'm admitting that it's my butt that's sore, and no way am I ready to let him inspect that part of my anatomy. Yet. 
Get you, my inner devil teases.
"I'm fine." I pin him with a "drop it" look. 
"You are so stubborn." Shaking his head, he unscrews the cap from his bottle.
"I'm stubborn?" I level an incredulous look his way. "Have you not looked in the mirror recently, dude?" 
He laughs and the sound sends warmth flooding through me. 
"You've a lovely laugh," I blurt out. Ohmigod! I can't believe I said something so cheesy.
"I do?" He looks amused.
"Yep." I'm resorting to one-word replies now for fear of what else might inadvertently tumble out of my mouth.
He stares intently at me, his fiery eyes penetrating my soul. The cord buzzes with anticipation. I might've forgotten how to breathe again. "You are beautiful, through and through." 
With each passing second, my heart pounds faster and faster. He inclines toward me and I move closer. Butterflies are throwing a mad party in the pit of my stomach. Like magnets, we inch closer and closer still. As my pulse throbs, he zeroes in on my lips and his eyes linger there.
I've imagined this moment so many times without ever really believing I'd get to experience it. Now that I'm here, seconds away from my first real kiss, I'm terrified of the strength of my emotion. I never knew it could be like this. That I could feel such a strong connection to a boy; that my body could tremble with such intense desire. And our lips haven't even met yet.
We are a hairsbreadth from one another. I bridge the final distance and close my eyes. His fingers brush my lips and I'm tingly all over. Reopening my eyes, I see the adoration glistening in his gaze. For me. 
"Ala beatra." The words roll seductively and respectfully off his tongue. 
I've no idea what it means, or what language he's speaking, but it sounds beautiful. 
And like a form of worship. 
Though it's possible I'm deluding myself.
He closes his eyes and presses his mouth to mine. His touch is feather soft and it unravels me. I kiss him back equally gently and he moans softly. His lips exert more pressure as he draws me in flush with his solid chest. I've never felt this much emotion before. It's almost too much, but at the same time, not enough.
Gaining in confidence, I encircle my arms around his neck and melt into him, savoring the feel of his body as it presses against mine. Angling his head, he extends the kiss, and it grows in intensity and fire. I'm matching him, kiss for kiss, and my need for him is reaching an all-time high. I can't get enough of him. He is everywhere, and yet I need more.

Saven Deception: The First Saven Novel 
Author: Siobhan Davis 
Review By: Brittany Perez 
(Oh My Bookness)
June 12, 2016

Saven Deception by Siobhan Davis is about a girl Sadie Owen’s who does not fit within her own family, a family who could careless what happens to her. To them she is a inconvenience. Sadie also cannot trust her own government but when she is chosen to participate in part of her government’s new social experiment, she could not be more happy. She will get to six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea, away from home, from her hateful family, ecstatic, she could not wait to go!

Sadie should have trusted her  first impression about the government, the thing about first  impressions they are nearly never wrong. Her excitement to go the Thalassic City and get away , she put aside her worries. Things those she once trusted is not who she thought and she became increasingly concerned with what the  government was up to.

When we look at the characters and the storyline Sadie is strong, strong willed, and a independent character. The way Siobhan builds Sadie throughout the book is a gradual pace. You get to know her, the trials and tribulations that she faces in her home life, we see her outside her home life trying to do better. Through out the book we are introduced to secondary characters that actually get your attention, and some get you invested. The story was developed as I mentioned Sadie herself was a developing character through the storytelling, getting stronger, getting to better know herself, especially as a budding romance was forming with Logan.

As I do not want to give to much away, spoil the story for those who have never read it, there are plenty of twist and turns. Until the end there is something always keeping you hooked. There is Sadie falling in love with Logan, aliens (Saven) walking amongst the humans and the humans don’t even know!  The Corruption of the government is scandalous and Sadie plans to figure it out with help from a partner Jarod and maybe Logan. If you want to learn more about Sadie and Logan’s Relationship and want to know if Logan is a Saven or not  you are going to have to read Saven: Deception.

As the they walk amongst us, who may or may not be Saven? As they look like any ordinary person.
