Claimed Review

Title: Claimed
Author:  Lauren Barnholdt and Aaron Gorvine
Release Date: Unknown
Publisher: Indie
Source: Bought/ Nook
Series: Witches of Santa Anna

Description:
Natalia Moore is the new girl at Santa Anna Prep, and all she wants to do is fly under the radar -- get to her classes, meet a few friends, and try not to make a total fool of herself in the meantime. But when handsome and popular Campbell Elliot goes out of his way to be nice to the new girl, Natalia's plan to go unnoticed flies out the window.

Cam’s hot, but he’s completely off-limits. Raine Marsden, the most popular and meanest girl in school, has had her eye on him ever since the summer. And Raine doesn’t like competition.

When Cam goes as far as inviting Natalia to the exclusive weekend party at Raine's house, Raine sets her sights on a new victim. But what Natalia doesn't know is that Raine and her friends are no ordinary mean girls. They have powers most people can only dream of, and nobody will stand in the way of what they want. And what Raine wants is Campbell.

Claimed, the first book in The Witches of Santa Anna series of novellas, proves just how far true love will go and that nothing--not even pure evil--can change your destiny….

  After reading claimed I know that I am going to really enjoy the rest of the series. Natalia is new at Santa Anna private school, and before she started she thought this was going to be a new start for her. She was going to make it perfect, have great friends and fly under the radar... Things aren't exactly going as planned.

On Natalia's first day she can't find her locker, then she locks her combination as well as her schedule in the locker and if that wasn't bad enough ... she closed her finger in her locker as well, trying to stop it from closing. Right as she was swearing she looked up and saw the most gorgeous guy at school staring at her.

Cam walks over to Natalia and he opens her locker for her, but not before asking her to go to Raine's house for a party the next day. Raine is the popular girl in school and she has her sights set on Cam ...and Raine gets what Raine wants! No matter what the cost.

I know from reading this first book into the series, that I am going to love this series. Everything about it pulls you in, you have the new girl... who definitely is not fitting in, the hot guy who wants to make her fit in, and the mean girl who hates her the minute she meets her, because the guy she likes is eying the new girl. Man talk about high school! Well with a twist... The mean girls are witches!

The authors' do a great job describing everything right down to the school. I could easily see myself walking through the halls of Santa Anna with Natalia and hating Raine because of the bitch she is. They made Cam drool worthy, as every leading man should be. I wish we had gotten a better description on how Natalia looks though, basically all you get is she is pale with long dark hair... not a whole lot to go on there. It didn't effect the terrific story line though. I will be reading the rest of the books in the series!
