I'm not the biggest YA fan most of the time, but I really did enjoy Livvie and Scott's story. I can't wait to read the next one.

Scott is a sorcerer who has found his heartmate. He is a sexy sweetheart. His family is great too, well maybe except for his one brother who seems to be a terror.

Livvie is a teenager trying to figure out all these changes, and some of them are not what they seem. I love her though. She feels real. Her parents aren't the most helpful, but I love her best friend.

Aiden was a creep from the beginning, giving off all the bad vibes.

This story pulled me in. It's a quick fun read, and any paranormal lovers who like their YA should definitely read this one

If you love Romance novels with the paranormal thrown in. Then you will love this book as I did. The story line was well thought out. The little details about the history's and the characters were spot on. Felicia really did her homework on this one. I cant wait for the next one. This one is definitely 5 stars!!!

Review by: Lynda Dickson on Aug. 16, 2013 :
Olivia Whitehead is a 17-year-old high school student who has dreamed about the same guy (Mr Sexy) for the last year and one month, since her sixteenth birthday.

Scott Tabor is a fifth-generation sorcerer with many powers, including the powers to heal, to dream walk, and to eavesdrop from a great distance. Olivia is his heart mate, the person he's supposed to spend the rest of his life with. Once he meets his heart mate, it becomes physically painful for him to be apart from her. However, because of an ancient curse, he can't meet Olivia until six months after her seventeenth birthday, otherwise she will die on her eighteenth birthday.

When Aiden Cavalier, the school jock, shows a sudden interest in Olivia, Scott realizes he now has some competition. And he doesn't like it. He needs to find a way to break the family curse, but the only way he can do so is by killing Devlin Hart, the descendant of the sorcerer who cast the curse.

Enter the mysterious Red Calamitous. What does this evil sorcerer have planned for Olivia? Events escalate, culminating in a fight between the forces of good and evil. Who will be left standing?

"The White Aura" is told in alternating chapters from Olivia's and Scott's points-of-view, a technique which is used very effectively. The story itself has an interesting premise, and Scott's powers come in very handy throughout the book. There were a number of editing errors and too much description for my liking, especially of the characters' appearance and clothing.

Be warned, the book ends on a cliffhanger in anticipation of the "The Vessel", the second book in this series.

I received this book for the purposes of providing an honest review.

I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this book. It was very well written and caught me from the beginning. It is filled with secrets that are uncovered throughout the story, and full of emotion.

I loved all the characters. Any reader can find a character that they love. It is about this average 17 year old named Olivia Whitehead. She goes to high like normal and has friends like normal. The only difference she has these dreams about Scott and she falls in love with him. At first, she thinks that it is just a really good dream, but she soon finds out that it isn't a dream. The guy in the dream is Scott Tabor. There is a curse on his family that causes him to not be able to communicate with their soul mate until some time after their 18th birthday. While Scott waits that time a guy name Aiden comes into the picture. He is a good looking popular guy that every girl would love to date. Scott then tries everything possible to intervene with the relationship between Olivia and Aiden. While all of this other going on an evil sorcerer gains a major interest with Olivia. Scott eventually finds out what is going on and then starts to protect Olivia from this evil that is wanting her. Olivia is also changing in ways she can't really explain. She is frustrated that when she tries to tell her almost never home parents about it they just kind of ignore it. She can tell they are not telling her something and it bothers her. It just makes even more confusing to Olivia.

I loved how this story unfolding and look forwards to continue into it. I would highly recommend this book to any reader that enjoys to sit down and get lost in a good story.

I received this book thru the group Lovers of the Paranormal, on Goodreads. I'm SO HAPPY THAT I DID! This book was SO Great, that as soon as I started, I couldn't stop reading till the end. The plot was Amazing. It was So unique & the characters were so interesting and vibrant! I loved learning about the sorcerers, their history and all their unique individual abilities. The main characters, Olivia and Scott were wonderful, realistic, very likable people. As were Many of the secondary characters, like Olivia's BFF & Scott's family. The story was written from both Olivia & Scott's POV, which brought a lot of insight into what they were both going thru as the plot continued to get more intense. And indeed it did get a lot more intense as Scott learned Olivia was in great danger from another very powerful sorcerer who wanted her for his own evil purposes. It certainly was a great experience reading this book and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT to all! This author is very talented and I look forward to reading more of this series and anything else she writes in the future! I already bought the second book to this series. :)

5+ STARS
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
EXTREMELY TALENTED NEW AUTHOR!
ONE OF MY TOP FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR!

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review (Lover of Paranormal Group on Goodreads).
I love the concept behind this novel—boy sees girl but can’t be with her, very Romeo and Juliet, but I’m afraid the execution fell a bit short for me. I realize this is paranormal fiction, and as Samuel Coleridge said the reader must willingly suspend disbelief; however, I found some of the events and explanations unacceptable. Parts of the family heritage were explained thoroughly while other things that I thought were important were hardly touched. For instance, the council was explained in great detail though we never encounter them in this novel, but the fact that 5000-year-old Anna just now has a family though her heart mate is never mentioned is odd. Also, when Delana is mentioned, I really thought she’d be a big part of the story, but that whole thing kind of goes away. Some of the actions and the dialogue seemed awkward and stilted. At times, the characters sounded like teenagers, but other times, not so much. I needed more foreshadowing on some events, too. Olivia’s power and the whole aura thing just pop up and seem to come from nowhere. In all fairness, however, this is a series, so I have a feeling some of my issues are addressed in later volumes, but frustration may keep readers from continuing the series.
There are some positives. It’s a quick read. I finished it in a few hours, and it has some steamy dream sequences which don’t go too far (or far enough depending on your perspective), so teens will love it. Scott seems completely sweet and devoted—perhaps too sweet—if you can get past Olivia calling him “Mr. Sexy,” which, for some reason, made me cringe every time she used it.

I was giving this book for an honest review by R2R (LoP)

Let me start by the positive, overall I liked the story a lot and that is why I gave it 4stars.
I enjoyed the storyline and it held my interest. I will definitely read the second book.
The friendship part between Juniper and Oliver was nice to read.

Here are a couple of things I did not like, first the dream at the very beginning I found this a little to mature for a YA book.
Second, the parents. They made the least sense to me. Now one minute they call her Darling and Baby girl and then they are not interested in their child's life? Now I am sure there is more to it, but then I think it should have worked into the book.
Then the Mr.Sexy part...a couple of times sure why not, but to me it just took overhand.
The fight scene at the end, not really much of a fight scene. I am more like when you push a knife through someone twist it. But ok.

Now I know it seems I have more negative things to say than positive. But in all honesty the negative things I can overlook since I truly did like the plot of it all.

I absolutely loved this book Felicia Tatum is an awesome writer! I received this book from her to read and review and I literally finished it in a day.
I was sucked in from the very first paragraph. I love the characters Scott and Olivia and the attraction between them and the suspense.
I love that Felicia had it in 2 POVS I liked knowing what's going on on both sides in this kind of story and I love that she used sorcerers!
I highly recommend this book it is such a page turner.
Thank you Felicia for giving me the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book for you and I'm totally looking forward to starting the next one!

Review by: Sarah Thomson on July 28, 2013 :
Damn - the author knows how to weave a good story! I had a couple of problems with the book one- the term Mr Sexy started getting to me after a while (but that is really neither here nor there), two, it was a slow and sappy start to the book. When I began I wasn't sure if i would really enjoy it, however as the book progressed i couldn't read it quick enough. It got really good. There was a lot of little things that could have been included like background on sorcerers and what not and I am hoping it will all become clearer in the second book. It is a very easy read however I loved it and i cannot wait to read the second book.

Review by: Edith Torres on July 26, 2013 :
What an amazing story! A coming of age for a young woman who knows nothing about the paranormal world. Olivia, a seventeen year old high school student, has been having the strangest, sexiest dreams. Always with the same man. Then there is the Jock who kinda creeps her out yet attracts her, she really doesn't like him but gives him a chance to prove he's not what she thinks. Now things get really interesting. Follow Olivia's journey into self discovery and into the supernatural !
I really enjoyed this novel. At first I thought it was a bit slow though the first page caught my attention. There is humor, angst, love of friend-family and romance as well as mystery, intrigue and yes the typical teenage life. The author draws you in with insight, and a rhythm in her writing that wraps you up in her story. I can't wait to read the next one!

I really enjoyed this book although I fear I am slightly out of the age range it is intended for but found that I could not put it down. It gripped me from the start and I really enjoyed how it flipped from both of the main characters POV's. Its a great plot and not one ive read about before. There are a few gramatical errors but nothing that deters from the book. I am left wanting to find out how they are going to now break the curse. Thanks to the author for giving me a copy to review. Looking forward to the next book!

This was a very fun read! I had a different expectation of what it would be like when I first read the description than what it turned out to be but not in a bad way. There were a couple of times when I got lost in the timeline but other then that it was a smooth read. I liked getting two POV's and enjoyed all the other characters. I really look forward to reading the next book!

Review by: Kendra Gaither on May 31, 2013 :
This was a good, fun read and I thank the author for giving me a copy to review. The characters were good, their relationships were very normal, and the plot was original. Scott is a sorcerer who has found his heart mate in Olivia, but because of a curse on his family, he can't actually meet her until she's 17 and a half, or Olivia will die. So he uses his powers and spies on her, plus he dream walks with her to be close to her. Bring in evil ancient sorcerer, looking like a high school senior, and now he's after Olivia, only he plans to sacrifice her to bring back his late love Delana.
Olivia starts feeling off and eventually realizes that she too has some powers, and she's slowly figuring them out. There's a battle, during which Scott has to step in to protect Olivia, meaning they've now met face to face. It isn't brought up again in the book until the final bit, but now that they've met, after the curse, Olivia will die when she turns 18. Which leaves us open for the next story!
There were a few errors, but nothing major, and nothing that made it hard to read. Again, I thank Ms Tatum for the chance to read and review for her, and look forward to the next book.

3.5 stars
I read this book in 2 days and I must say, It was a pretty good book. It had an interesting storyline with twists that were new to me and characters that I really liked. I was pleased with the way the author ended the book and I am looking forward to reading The Vessel, the next book in the series.

*Though there is a romantic element to the book it's still a "safe" read for all YA readers.

** I would have given it a 4 star rating except for the fact that there were several errors that made it through the editing process and I found them to be a bit distracting at times.

My reaction when I got to the end.... WHAT NOOOOOOOO!!!! I wasn't ready for it to end!! My only complaint is that is ended way too soon!!
This book is fascinating! I was completely sucked in within the first few pages. The story moves along smoothly and is easy to follow. It is fast paced with some really funny parts. I love all the characters! Scott, Olivia, J, Mark, and Scott’s family are all fabulous!! I am kind of bummed about not getting to Olivia talking with her parents!! The secrecy with the parents is killing me!! I want to know…I have to know!! I am hoping there is or will be another book! I have so many unanswered questions!! I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes paranormal romance/fantasy stories. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Kudos to Felicia Tatum …you write a damn good story!!

There are very few books that draw me in from page one, normally takes a few chapters for me to get into a book, but this story trapped me from the first page I couldn't put the book down.Its fun, its sexy, its exciting and magical and romantic all into one. Felicia Tatum's relaxed and chatty writing style helps make this book a light and easy read, written in first person from both lead characters POV gives the reader an amazing insight into the characters. All the characters are fun and loveable and brought to life by Miss Tatum in a colourful magical way, she has the ability to make you feel you are in the book with the characters which is a very hard for a author to do.

Livie is a beautiful, strong minded young women. And ladies who wouldn't want to be seduced every night in there dreams by a gorgeous sexy man?? Its a brilliant idea and a wonderful way to introduce the lovers, through dreams. I love the fact the love triangle is cleared up almost straight away and you know pretty early on where Livies heart and mind is.

I think the way Livie reacted to Scott being a sorcerer and the changes that happen to herself etc are a bit unbelieveable you would think her reaction would be much stronger and not so easily accepting of the situation so easily. However the story line is so good and so magical and draws you in so easily its easy to overlook this , it doesn't matter and it doesn't ruin the story whatsoever.

This book easily got 5 stars from me for the simple reason i couldn't stop reading it was amazing and i cant wait to read more novels about Scott and Livvie and there story of love, romance, magic and friendship full of suspense just as the White aura is. i say this a must read for anyone who loves a powerful love story , magic, and fun filled suspense.

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I could hardly put it down. For this being her first book, it was done amazingly well. There were some parts in it that I believe could have done with a little more work, but it was nothing big enough to mess with the story. I found myself drawn into this world and very much look forward to reading the next one.

I fell right into the flow of thr story, and the!well-developed characters kept me turning pages, eager to find out what would happen next. Ms. Tatum handled the twi main character viewpoints perfectly. The love story is endearing and the plot suspenseful. I look forward to the next in the series.
