Summary;

Seventeen year old Lisa Brown’s life is falling apart. First, her mother and father divorce, then their house forecloses and now, her mother has decided to commit herself to a psychiatric hospital.

If that weren’t enough, she must leave sunny south Florida to attend a boarding school full of geniuses in cold, Lynn, Massachusetts. The city where the locals chant “Lynn, Lynn, city of sin; you never come out the way you went in.”

And, they aren’t kidding. Lisa must live in a tiny shack with two strange teenagers, a dog named Pig who growls when you look at him and a cat named Rat. “Mind the cat,” everyone says. What the heck is wrong with this place?

Lisa thinks she’s landed in her own house of horrors with the anti-social Alex and his facetious sister Ally. But, the real drama begins the day she is struck by lightning…

Excerpt:
“Come with me.” Alex pointed to the stairs. We took them slowly. To the left on the second floor was a pool table. Reginald, his three groupies and Michael congregated around it. I glanced over at Michael who poked his butt out as he bent over, aiming his pool stick at the cue ball. When he saw me holding Alex’s hand, he scratched, dropping his stick onto the table.
“Lisa, why?” He frowned, inching forward. “Not with him.”
“It’s not what it looks like,” I stammered. Alex pulled me closer and Michael’s lips tightened. He stomped his feet and stood only a foot away.
“It looks a lot like you’re going to his room with him; alone.”
“So what if she is. She already told you it wasn’t like that. We’ve lived in the same house for the past week and nothing has happened. I think you need to chill out and finish playing your game,” Alex said. I looked at him. His eyes sparkled and his lips trembled slightly. Was he timid?
“Lisa,” Michael grabbed my arm, jerking me away. “Don’t go with him. It’ll be a big mistake, trust me.”
Alex stood, frozen in the center of the game room. I looked up at Michael and then back at Alex. Michael’s eyes were angry, and Reginald and his groupies stood against the wall with frightened looks upon their faces. Were they really afraid? I knew I was! His grip tightened and he forced me over to the pool table. “Stay here, don’t you dare go to his room.”
“Lisa,” Alex whispered. My fingers twitched. “Please, let’s go. You and Michael can play pool tomorrow. We need to do this so that I can find out what’s wrong, remember?”
My knees weakened and I could hardly stand. I glanced over at Alex. His blue eyes saw straight through to my soul and it made me crumble like a mound of jello.
“No, Lisa, don’t go with him.”
“Dude, what’re you doing?” Reginald whispered. “You’re going a little too far. I’m not with him on this one, Alex, so don’t take it out on me later.”
“I wouldn’t dare.” Alex folded his arms across his chest. “Lisa, please come here.”
His lips gently pressed against mine. I could feel his teeth b
ehind them. My heart fluttered
and for the first time in my life, I knew I was truly love
d. I could feel every emotion he
possessed in just a single second. He really struggled with him
self to stay in control so that he
wouldn
t go too far with me even though he knew I wanted him to do m
ore. I lay on my back
and he rested his body across mine. I grew breathless and wa
nted nothing more than
more
. I
couldn
t get close enough to him. Even with his body smashed against
mine, it wasn
t
enough. I wanted him inside me. He had to do it.
He wouldn
t
. He struggled against himself,
crying out softly in such agony.

Review:

I love Paranormal Romances and this one is perfect for Teens and Young Adults!  Cynthia Leigh Pritchard is off to a great start with this first book of the CIN series.  CIN is unique with a new approach and situations that would appeal to teens like cute guy crushes, an ill parent, moving, divorce and more.  When the heroine gets sent to a boarding school, her life seems almost surreal and she has to adapt to all of this on her own.  That’s where the real fun begins.

“C I N: Lynn, Lynn, City of Sin. You Never Come Out the Way You Went In”

She’s told to ‘mind the cat’ named rat.  People never age.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  The story builds and builds with mystery and suspense for at least 2/3rds of the book.  There is some romance and it gets a little more intimate than I would have liked (Remember, we try and post only Clean Reads) but it would likely appeal to most readers.  This was a real page turner for sure.  Once I started reading it, it was in my hands every spare minute of every day until I finished and then I wished there was more!  Thank heavens it’s a series!!  So if you are looking for something new and different, that’s a bit hard to describe, look no further than CIN!

*****5 Stars*****
