GUEST REVIEW: Here (Here Trilogy #1) by Ella James

Milo Mitchell's life used to be charmed, but that was before her family dissolved, she went a little crazy, and her best friends started acting more like strangers. Spending Saturday morning in a treehouse with a stun gun for company and a herd of deer for friends is the only exciting thing in her life...until she shoots a fawn and finds her dart stuck in a guy.

Her gorgeous victim is dressed in a Brioni tux and armed with a hanky. He has no idea who or where he is. Afraid her dart caused his amnesia, Milo takes him in, names him Nick, and vows to help him solve his mystery. Soon the pair find Nick's face in a newspaper obituary, and Nick beings to have strange, ethereal memories of Milo--who is sure she's never met him. Suddenly Nick knows things he shouldn't know and is doing things he shouldn't do. When the Department of Defense shows up, Nick and Milo run--toward a shocking conclusion that could destroy both their worlds.

I really enjoyed this book.  Although I am an avid reader, this was the first book I have read by Ella James.  I will definitely be back for more!!  In this book, a girl named Milo deals with the loss of her father by taking on a project he had been working on before his death- tracking deer.  One day when she is out tracking them, she shoots a sedative dart at a fawn.  When she goes to see the deer, there is a boy (Nick) in a tuxedo in the spot where the fawn was and the dart is stuck in him.  He has no idea who he is or where he is from.  The story progresses as Milo and Nick try to figure out who he is.  I typically do not read sci-fi/paranormal books, but after this one, I will definitely be reading more.  I could not put the book down as I wanted to see what was going to happen next.  I loved the interaction between Milo and Nick.  The end of the book ends in a cliffhanger and leaves you wanting for book 2 (this is a trilogy).  I recommend it and have been telling friends about it already.  

4/5 Stars
