Book Tour - "One" by Leigh Ann Kopans

ONE Synopsis:

When having two powers makes you a Super and having none makes you a Normal, having only one makes you a sad half-superpowered freak.

It makes you a One.

Sixteen-year-old Merrin Grey would love to be able to fly – too bad all she can do is hover.

If she could just land an internship at the Biotech Hub, she might finally figure out how to fix herself. She busts her butt in AP Chem and salivates over the Hub’s research on the manifestation of superpowers, all in hopes of boosting her chances.

Then she meets Elias VanDyne, another One, and all her carefully crafted plans fly out the window. Literally. When the two of them touch, their Ones combine to make them fly, and when they’re not soaring over the Nebraska cornfields, they’re busy falling for each other.

Merrin's mad chemistry skills land her a spot on the Hub's internship short list, but as she gets closer to the life she always wanted, she discovers that the Hub’s purpose is more sinister than it has always seemed. Now it’s up to her to decide if it's more important to fly solo, or to save everything - and everyone - she loves.

About Leigh Ann Kopans:

Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.

Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)

My review:

Merrin Grey is a considered a One because she only has one power, in order for her to be a Super she would need two .  Anyone that doesn’t possess at least one power is considered a Normal. For Merrin being an One, means she doesn’t fit in that is until she meets Elias who also turns out to be an one.  Not only do they share this in common, whenever they touch they get a shock so to speak.  They soon find out that they are each other’s other “power”/mate and when they touch they can fly…Merrin’s dream!
I have to admit that all though the story was interesting and it had all the points I love about books…mystery, magic, romance there was just something that made me struggle to continue on with the book. I can’t pin point what it was exactly but because of this I’m finding it hard to write a good meaningful review, I would love to hear your thoughts on this book if you have read it.  With that being said I do feel that the author did a great job of keeping the flow going and pulling things together.
