Love Struck by Melissa Marr

Genre: YA

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads Says: When Alana gets more or less accidentally entrapped by a selchie she is forced to revise all of her previous rules.

Awwww! What a sweet story!

Love Struck is where Alana meets a Selchie aka Selkie aka Silkie aka a magical being who shifts from Seal to human. The lore has been that Silkies shed their seal skin to kidnap a lover and takes them back to see with them or binds them and live on land together. Either way it never seems like the ideal love situation, you knowing being forced into a love situation. BUT ANYWAY! Alana accidently steps on Murrin's skin and just like that they are magically bound to one another.

The rest of the story is one where Murrin works on earning Alana's trust, friendship, and love but not without some obstacles. JUST READ TO GET THE DEETS!

I think what I liked most about this story was the message that love does not have to be complicated and that there is no need to self sabotage, making something that is right so wrong. Alana had to learn to allow happiness and love into her life. Love does not have to be complicated... it's not always perfect, more often than not this is the case but it should never be complicated.

At any rate I say read it! This story made me want to read more stories where Silkies were involved. It was a nice change. :-)
