Blog Tour: Taken by Surprise by Jessica Frances

New Adult Paranormal Romance
Date Published: 9/5/2013

Five strangers scattered across America have three things in common with each other. 

One: They each have special abilities that shouldn’t be possible. 

Two: They’ve all just had people try to kill them. 

Three: They’ve all just been kidnapped and taken away from their home, families and friends. 

Their lives will never be the same as they’re taken to a government facility and told that their abilities mean that they must train to become soldiers and fight. But are they being told the truth? Or is something more sinister going on? They must learn to trust each other and decide if they should stay on this path or run away from it. Either way there is no going back.

My Review:
What a wonderful blend of New Adult and Paranormal. This cover can be a bit deceiving in the fact that it looks a lot more Contemporary, so the Paranormal (time-traveling) aspect can come as a surprise to anyone who doesn't read carefully enough.

I really think that the plot in this story really pulls the reader in. It was superbly done! The characters were also great and I really enjoyed the connection between the leads. For it being a New Adult, it was quite tame. Most New Adults lean more towards the Romance Genre, but this one seemed a bit more Young Adult, maybe it was just me. 

This book was definitely a surprise and I can't wait until the next book in the series. 


Born and raised in South Australia, Jessica spends her days working in a bakery, afternoons catching up on lost sleep, and nights reading and writing. Writing has always been a passion of hers, however it wasn’t until Zoe appeared into her head and wouldn’t leave that she finally was able to put a story down and finish it. After writing three books, she is wondering if she should start charging Zoe and her friends rent.
