Trapped in a dark cult, sixteen-year-old Naomi Aren has lived a quiet, albeit unhappy, life nestled deep in the hills of the Ozarks. With uncut hair, denim skirts, and only roses for friends, Naomi seldom questions why her life is different from other kids at school. Until the day her abusive father, who is also the cult’s leader, announces her wedding. Naomi must marry Dwayne Yerdin, a bully who reeks of sweat and manure and is the only one person who scares her worse than her father.
Then she meets Kai, the mysterious boy who brings her exotic new roses and stolen midnight kisses. Kisses that bring her a supernatural strength she never knew she had. As the big day approaches, Naomi unearths more secrets of about her father’s cult. She learns she has power of her own and while Kai may have awakened that power, Naomi must find a way to use it to escape Dwayne and her father—without destroying herself.

Kimberly Loth can’t decide where she wants to settle down. She’s lived in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Utah, California, Oregon, and South Carolina. She finally decided to make the leap and leave the U.S. behind for a few years. Currently, she lives in Cairo, Egypt with her husband and two kids.
She is a high school math teacher by day (please don’t hold that against her) and YA author by night. She loves romantic movies, chocolate, roses, and crazy adventures. Kissed is her first novel.

WOW! What an intense and intriguing book! I could not put it down because I was so captivated by the story! The whole time I was thinking, what in the world happen to her parents? And why would she not run away?! 

 Naomi finds herself questioning what happen after her eighth birthday...she is now 16 and her parents have joined some kind of cult that is AWFUL! I had tears in my eyes when she described the things they would do to those poor girls. It all changed with a kiss! Naomi was not sure if it was a dream or real until she finally meet Kai! Naomi decides to run away to her aunts in Las Vegas. When she gets to Vegas she meets Puck! I kept switching from team Kai to team Puck....they both had so many pros and cons....I am still torn!!!! 

 Will her parents find her?! What in the world is really going on?! I highly recommend this book!!! Great story and wonderfully written! Loved it! I give it 5 stars!
