REVIEW: Outsider: The Flawed Series Book Two By Becca J. Campbell

 After a psychopath tried to kill his friends, Josh Schuyler figured 'normal' was far off. The real problem: Josh's friends have all acquired supernatural abilities, while he's still the same average guy.

Josh has always believed he was destined for greatness, but he's been out of college for two years without a clue of his purpose. After watching his friends and siblings develop superhuman traits, he wonders if he might be meant for something grand, too. Can Josh even hope for an extraordinary event in his own future? And how long must he wait for this transformation - if there is one?

When Alex met the Schuylers, she was grateful for new friends to whisk her away from her lonely life in California and give her an escape from her divorced, bickering parents and aimless future. But Josh won't drop his defenses, and Alex isn't sure she wants to trade her old life for this new, uncertain one.

Nicodemus has an amazing ability he's been milking for years to get whatever or whomever he wants. Things are going great until a young woman - Alex - inadvertently busts his latest swindle. Nic is furious when he discovers his power has been disabled, and he vows to find her in order to wreak his vengeance. She will be punished. All he needs is a little help from his friend, Ethan Black.

Josh has been waiting for his big break, or for the chance to be a hero, or just the opportunity to stand out in his own, extraordinary way.

Will Josh discover his purpose in time to stop Nic?

This was all about Josh and his attraction to Alex and I absolutely loved it. 

Reading the first book and the novella that followed I wont lie I didn't pay much attention to Josh's character in either of them.

But in this book, he is rather amazing. This author shows how he isn't the most handsome or muscled out guy, he doesn't have special gifts like everyone else in this group. Because of that  he is the outsider!

He's alone and unsure where he really fits in.

Meeting and getting to know Alex helps him find where he belongs and what hes meant to do with his life.

The ending is crazy and gut wrenching tear jerker for sure. 

I just couldn't wait to start the next chapter in this series after reading this book.

This author is a truly amazingly magnificent writer. Her books are a must read for anybody!!!

5 Stars all the way!

An avid lover of stories that tiptoe the line between fantasy and reality, Becca J. Campbell looks for new angles on bridging the gap between the two. She holds a special place in her heart for any story that involves superpowers or time travel. Her passion is defying the limits of her own creativity.

Becca's journey into writing began as many of her other creative endeavors do - by daring herself to try something new. The question "what if I wrote a novel?" and some hastily scribbled notes on a church handout were the inspirations that jump-started her first book. Since then, she has written half a dozen additional novels and several shorter works.
