Review ~ Seeking Havok ~ Lila Felix

Seeking Havok

Lila Felix 


Her life is just as messed up as her name.

All she wanted was a friend---one that knew her and not her circumstances. She needed somewhere to call home. Hers was an open door for countless men looking for the services her mother offered them. She camouflaged herself against lockers and blackboards to avoid the stares and whispers at school.

And then she found Cal...and Fade.

Cal lives like Frankenstein, rising at night to work and just trying to make it until dawn. He avoids most relationships, afraid of the things he will be asked to do. He moonlights as Fade, a radio station DJ who spends hours counseling his peers on their troubles. It was all mundane until Jocelyn called the station.

Cal and Havok pursue a friendship.

Jocelyn and Fade pursue a relationship beyond the confines of the radio waves.

But when Havok disappears, Cal will find that Havok has been guarding a lifetime worth of secrets. And when Fade and Jocelyn’s all night phone conversations cease, he finds a link between them he never saw coming.

Amy's Thoughts~

Where to really begin with Seeking Havok? It's no secret that I am among the number 1 fans of Lila Felix. I have been a fan since the beginning. Each novel of hers that I read is better and better than the last. When I first read AnguiSH, I thought, that right there is a masterpiece, nothing can top it. 

I. Was. Wrong. 

Seeking Havok has the power within it's pages to tear your heart out. Rip it to shreds. Your heart will bleed with Havok, for Havok. Havok Jocelyn spends her life in a closet with her headphones on. When she's not in the closet, she's usually on the streets. It's safer than being at home. Never knowing where her next meal is coming  from, never knowing where she will lay her head from day to day. She's on her own. She knows it, but she doesn't need everyone else to know it. 

Fade Calhoun works each night as an emcee, sleeps each day. Every day. Never changing his routine. And that's what it has become... routine. He needs a change, and then he meets Havok. His fierce need to take care of her takes over. He wants to protect her, take care of her, but she just won't let him in. Cal has the largest heart, and he is the sweetest guy ever. 

Lila Felix takes Seeking Havok to a whole other level. There is really nothing else I can say about it. It's a definite Must Read. Don't miss it, Don't miss Havok and her story.
