Sum It Up! Enjoyed this story and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second book.


Shouldn't all faerytales end with happily-ever-after?

Kyla Ashbury is nearing her eighteenth birthday when a mysterious boy appears at school. Her instant attraction to him inexplicably awakens something inside her and she discovers her true identity.

Now, armed with the knowledge of her past, she is forced to leave behind the life she has always known for a new one filled with temptation, faery charm and magic, and a future she wasn't prepared for.

Kyla is left with a difficult decision…but no matter which path she chooses, someone will get hurt. (Goodreads)
Gossamer is based on Faery folklore and while I love the world of Fae, Gossamer didn’t grab me like many others I have read did. That said, I still enjoyed this story and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second book. The ending was left far to open for the story to just end where it did. Now, on to my review!
Kyla is a good student, loves honey and looks nothing like her parents. Why? She’s a faery princess, or at least half faery. Her real mother made a bargain with her adoptive parents, promising their child who was dying of a heart condition would be healed if they chose to raise Kyla as their own. Eighteen years later, learning that her life has been a lie, she must now leave the only world she’s known and enter a new world she knows nothing about.
Grant, the new hot guy whose touch sets fire to Kyla’s skin is an actual Grant- but he and his friend Conner are hiding secrets of their own. Grant has promised to bring Kyla back to her birth mother, but when Kyla learns the reason behind it, her heart is shattered.
Kyla was promised to marry the prince, and in return, will be protected from harm. With Grant’s coldness, Kyla attempts to give the good looking prince, Liam a chance… but every time she’s with him, Grant’s face, his touch and the heart pounding kiss clouds her ability to do so.
Humans are not able to taste Faery wine without being awestruck and since Kyla is half human, she soon forgets her feelings for Grant and focuses on Liam. Now desperate, Grant tries begging Kyla to snap out of the magical ruse and choose who she really loves with a clear mind.
I’ll end with this; Kyla snaps out of her faery fogged mind and chooses….
Sorry, I couldn’t give the best part away;) As I’ve mentioned before, Gossamer is a great story but the voice of Pizzitola’s characters are way too formal, which primarily, made it difficult for me to enjoy this story more.
