Synopsis:Kevin Pierce is a teleporter, a ladies’ man, and a loyal friend. Or so he thought.
As a genetically altered Luminary, he helps the government bring down some of the most dangerous criminals. Not very challenging if you have his special abilities. But when a group of rebel Luminaries attacks his Organization the fight for survival begins.
One shattering event after another tests the depth of his relationships, his sanity, and his powers. Emotionally torn, Kevin must choose carefully where his loyalty lies. In the middle of all the unexpected chaos he gets the biggest shock of his life when he’s faced by a betrayal he never saw coming. Angry, injured, and ready to even the score, Kevin goes Static . . .

I received a review copy of Static in exchange for an honest review for the blog tour that I am taking part in.

This cover is just as stunning as the first book. I just love everything about this cover from the colour to the model and even the title. Static's cover is one of those covers that would always catch my attention.

I really wanted to love this book as I enjoyed the first book but for me it just didn't grab my attention. When I couldn't get into the beginning of the story I wasn't worried as that had happened with book one but when I got over halfway through I definitely got worried. There was moments during the first half that I liked and thought it was starting to pick up but it didn't stick until the last few chapters and then it really took off. I think one of the things that let Static down for me was the romance side of the story as for me it felt forced and unbelievable. The action side of the story was what kept me entertained as it was thrilling and nail biting as well as some shocking things happening. It was hard to know what to believe in with Static as what we where lead to believe in the beginning was thrown out of the window in the end which I'm still not sure I liked or not. The ending was good and has me wondering what on earth is going to happen next and whose book is it going to be.

With everything changing throughout the book it was hard to be drawn to one character. I loved Kevin in the first book which had me excited to read his story, but in the end he changed completely and even when we understand why the damage had already been done. As for some of the other characters I won't get into them as so much happens with each of them it's hard to know what to believe. I did enjoy seeing more from Annie to see what she was up to now.

Overall, I was a bit disappointed in this book but there was moments that I did enjoy and the ending was very shocking I'm looking forward to seeing what is going to happen there.
