Review: RUN TO YOU #1: FIRST SIGHT by Clara Kensie (YA)

Released today!!! Harlequin Teen's first "digital-first" serial!!!
A "digital-first" serial is a book that is broken into 3 eBook parts where each part is released a week apart from one another. Kind of like watching a soap opera or serial teen show, where the plot just keeps going and going... 

Here is a little bit about part one to the RUN TO YOU series by Clara Kensie...

by Clara Kensie
Release date: February 1st, 2014
Published by: Harlequin Teen
Genre: Young Adult Romance Thriller
Format: eGalley from publisher for an honest review.


Part One in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…

Sarah Spencer has a secret: 
her real name is Tessa Carson, and to stay alive, she can tell no one the truth about her psychically gifted family and the danger they are running from. 
As the new girl in the latest of countless schools, she also runs from her attraction to Tristan Walker — after all, she can’t even tell him her real name. 
But Tristan won’t be put off by a few secrets. Not even dangerous ones that might rip Tessa from his arms before they even kiss…


Clara Kensie knows how to write an emotional thrilling romantic mystery! It's a good thing that this is a digital book, I believe I would have ripped pages if it was on paper! I couldn't read fast enough, Tessa's story is so deep and personal. You will not be able to put this down and you will definitely be craving to get to parts 2 and 3 right away...

Tessa's whole life is based on lies. But she has no choice. The lies keep her and her paranormal family safe from the bad man. They must flee every time he gets too close. New names, new home, new school... secrets must be kept and the family rules must be obeyed: never be left alone, do not attract attention, do not leave any traces behind. No one can ever know who she is, or her family's powers.
No one.

And then she meets Tristan.

Can Tessa allow herself to trust someone outside of her family? Can she let herself relax and enjoy a little bit of peace that she has finally found in her chaotic world?

This is definitely a story not to be missed!!!
Stay tuned for my next review of part two, Second Glance, to be posted next week!!!


Clara Kensie grew up near Chicago, reading every book she could find and using her diary to write stories about a girl with psychic powers who solved mysteries. She purposely did not hide her diary, hoping someone would read it and assume she was writing about herself. Since then, she's swapped her diary for a computer and admits her characters are fictional, but otherwise she hasn't changed one bit.

Today Clara is the author of super-romantic psychic thrillers for young adults. RUN TO YOU, the first serialized novel from HarlequinTEEN, begins February 1 2014 with weekly releases. The sequel, also a three-part serial, begins June 1 2014.

Her favorite foods are guacamole and cookie dough. But not together. That would be gross.
