Blog Tour+Giveaway: "Golden" by Melinda Michaels
Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for "Golden" by Melinda Michaels! We are having today the review of the book as also a giveaway!
High school senior Hanna Loch just suffered a blackout in front of her entire homeroom class. She hasn’t had one in over ten years, and she’s terrified—the last time she blacked out, she woke up with no memory of her life before. To make matters worse, no one can explain why it happens. For Hanna, bad things tend to come in threes.
And that doesn’t even begin to cover it . . .
When she learns she could be a descendant of someone who lived once upon a time, Hanna must put her trust in William Vann, a descendant of one of the most hated villains ever known. Their histories are intertwined in more ways than she expected, and he has answers about her past, answers even her family won’t share.
But is it safe to put her trust in someone who appears to be danger reincarnate, while trying to escape the darkness that tried to kill her ten years ago?
A loose fairytale retelling, GOLDEN is a story that’s just right, weaving together lost secrets, vengeful enemies, and what happens when fiction becomes reality.

I received an eARC from REUTS Publications in exchange for an honest review.
Fairytale retellings always was one of my favorite genres. Take Marissa Meyer and her Cinder series for example.
GOLDEN is loosely based on Goldilocks but in a more suspensful way. Hanna suffers from special 'fainting attacks' which result in a not so usual life. Afraid and worried for her situation, it doesn't take long for more foreboding people to enter her life and bring forth secrets well hidden.
Although Hanna was intriguing, I like William most. As a villain, or we think he is, tends to be more misunderstood as he tries to earn Hanna's trust. And with danger lurking around for both of them, they are going to need it. :)
