Amber Eyes (Entwined Souls Trilogy, #1)

Jolyn Palliata
After an accident, one she shouldn’t have walked away from, Lexi’s life finally begins. She meets Dez, a new student with the most beautiful eyes she’s ever seen. And since gazing into them, Lexi has had vivid waking dreams that pull her back through time, and into the warm embrace of a mysterious stranger—a stranger who becomes all too familiar. When offering an explanation for her detailed visions, Dez changes her world forever with two simple words: Soul mates. For the first time in her life, Lexi feels safe and complete. But lingering in the shadows is the embodiment of evil, coveting the light within her. He’s a threat to Lexi’s very existence, and to a love that has transcended time.

It was ok, which is what a 2 star rating is supposed to mean. I would not have finished this book if I didn't like it at all! It was actually pretty good, to a point (the last 20 pages or so). I could have dealt with a little less of the depression but, with the length of it, felt like the ending and return to good vibes was rushed. If we're going to be in the deepest of awful funks returning to good should take more. I mean, people do cope in different ways but, in my opinion, an actual conversation with the cause would have had to occur before the deepest of dark funks went away.
Also, the whole conflict that led to the funk in the first place seems odd to me. I'd think these people would know each other better and be more perceptive of one another and.. things. I wasn't a huge fan of the protective, hovering man routine, either. Especially when followed by the funk causing incident.

I'm being cryptic because I really don't want to commit any spoiler activities.
I got this book for free off of Amazon and it was written by a friend's friend. It is part of a trilogy so the story isn't done. There is or will be more to read!
It occurs to me that this book reminded me strongly of [b:My Name Is Memory|7135858|My Name Is Memory|Ann Brashares|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1307512606s/7135858.jpg|7399114], which I read last March. Anyone who may have read both is going to see the similarities. There's nothing wrong with the stories being similar but I think my appreciation for this book was lessened by my prior experience with the other book.
