Review/Giveaway: Marked. Part I: The missing Link (Marked #1) by J.M. Sevilla


Part one of a two part series. 

There are three things Lily Evans immediately notices about her new neighbor, Jay Lincoln. The first is his monstrous size, the second is the malicious way he glares at her, and thirdly, but most importantly, the three scars that mark his right eye. She knows the smart thing to do is stay away, but she has never met or seen anyone like him. The more time she spends with this frightening yet captivating man, the harder it becomes. He can make her hairs stand on end but he also has a sweetness to him that tugs at her heart. Soon she finds herself merged into his world full of murder, revenge, and deceit.


My Review


Okay firstly let me say haven't read this book? What the hell are you waiting for? Go grab it right now!!

This book is book 1 of the marked series by J.M.Sevilla and what a tremendous book it is. It all starts off with Lily, we find out that she has just broken up with her ex after taking 2 years or so of mental and physical abuse. She seems lost like her ex took a part of her and turned her into a robot who only follows his instructions.She has moved back in with her mom and two brothers and needs to start living again. Her mundane life is turned on its head when she is told to give some food to the next door neighbour.

Another tremor travels down when I notice the scars. How had I not noticed them right away? It looks like a three-clawed animal tried to scratch out his right eye.

Jay is a hot sexy and scary neighbour who doesn't interact much with others.He always keeps to himself, he has to, its how he lives.Getting attached isn't possible not with the dangers that lurk around him. Its too dangerous, it's a weakness and it can get people killed. So what happens when Lily comes barging into Jay's life and things change.

He can't get involved with Lily, she is too innocent he will end up ruining her.But its all out of his hands.She sees him like no-one else in his life has.Throughout the book you see Lily growing into a much more better version of her. Being with Jay changes her she is more alive than she has ever been. He heals her and makes her see things in a different light.The lily she thought was gone, comes back much stronger.

You also see change in Jay, he becomes more talkative and open with her.Its the first time life seems beautiful and simple.After having a rough time as a kid he has always been somewhat of a loner but Lily is a game changer. He feels like he is being selfish that he should have never got involved in her life, her life will be destroyed if she gets involved. Life isn't so simple for Jay and the last thing he wants is for someone as innocent as Lily to be brought into it.

"But at the same time I want to have this to cherish for the rest of my life.I want to remember a time when my life was perfect, simple, and full of happiness. I've never had any of those things before, but I have that with you. After I leave, I won't ever have it again." - Jay

So what happens when Lily is thrust into Jay's life, she is in danger and entering Jay's world could get her killed.Will she be able to let Jay go? And what happens when she becomes a part of a deadly plan..An amazing book that will have you captivated and will have you reading until 5am.

This book is filled with, action, suspense, twists and turns,swoon worthy moments and a lot of hotness ;) I loved how it had a bit of everything, it was funny, sweet,hot, action-packed, had me on edge and I can't wait for more!
J.M. Sevilla Hurry with the next book :D

"Damn, Lily, you've ruined me." He kisses the top of my head and I nuzzle up under his chin, sedated and content.

Oh and I soo think Vault needs to have his own book he is an interesting character I would love to find out more about.And it would be totally awesome to have a chapter where we are in Dragoni's head, just to see what the bloody hell is going on up there!
