Description from the publisher:

Nothing about me is normal…
…but what exactly is ‘normal’? Just because I have two dads and no mom, my name is Elliot Marcus Smith even though I’m a girl, and I was born from a test tube…
Does that mean I’m ‘abnormal’?

I say no.

But the sudden abilities that have been appearing since I turned eighteen sure do. Wounds are healing quickly, my vision has changed, as has my strength, and my sensitivities to other people’s emotions have become severely heightened. Add all that to the fact that I have been forgetting moments of my day as if they never happened, and it’s obvious that something strange is happening to me.

But what? What am I becoming?



This is a stand-alone paranormal May/December romance.  I hope Ms. Scholl expands it into a series.  I’d love to learn more about the rest of the team.


Elli has a lot of flaws, but that’s what makes her real.  Real people are deeply flawed, if they’ve lived beyond the lines.  While there is safety within the boundaries, there is adventure when you go outside the accepted perimeters.


I really enjoyed the unique circumstances of Elli’s birth and her beyond-the-common parents.  Since my own preference is for older gentlemen and always has been, I felt great empathy for her choice in day-dream fodder.  I was very happy for her when she realized dream attraction was reciprocated.  Noah is the stuff of any healthy girl’s dreams, gorgeous, intelligent, and kind.  Little does Elli know, but he’s known what she is to him for a very long time (in the manner of Jake and Renesmee).


The circumstances of Elli’s birth are science fiction, but believable.  Add in a dash of paranormal miasma and the real adventure begins.  Let me tell you, it was an edge of my seat, hit the ground running adventure! 


This is the first book I have read from Genevieve Scholl.  I’m looking forward to reading more!
