    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 stars Bailey DeWitt is a spoiled child of successful lawyers. She's popular and a cheerleader at her local high school as well as the older sister of twin brothers, Jace and Jess.

She's popular and a cheerleader at her local high school as well as the older sister of twin brothers, Jace and Jess. When she learns of her parents' deaths, she is understandably devasted and outraged when she learns that she and her brothers are being shipped off to Texas to live with an uncle they barely remember. Their uncle, Peter Mason, is evasive about exactly what he does for a living and its clear that their new home in Midland hasn't been lived in very long. Not being very trusting of her uncle, she starts working to make some money of her own and branching out with a new circle of friends. When summer arrives and she's finally allowed to go to The Ranch and experience the prepper community for herself, she quickly learns that there may not be a permanent place for her in the community. Doing her best to fit in, Bailey settles into life at the compound and all seems well until she's told that she's being allowed to go back to Midland to complete her last year of high school. I can't wait to for the next installment to see what path Bailey is on. What worked/what didn't: What worked for me was seeing Bailey adjusting to life in the prepper community by listening, and doing. She left the spoiled girl behind that she was in Chicago to become a self-sufficent person in Texas. What didn't work for me was the fact that while Bailey used her phone to check in with social media sites, she NEVER called any of her friends. And they NEVER called her. Also, I'm sure that her parents (being lawyers) would have set up a trust, guardians, etc to take care of their children in the event something happened to them. Part of a Series: Yes. ~~Wicked Reads Review Team~~

    I liked the story itself, though I found myself disliking Bailey for most of the first half of the book. She was a brat, a smart mouth, a spoiled teenager who had no respect for her elders. I didn't like her and aside from the assault, felt like she was digging herself into a hole she was going to have a hard time escaping. That being said, once she spent some time on the ranch and discovered how fulfilling her life could be, she seemed to mature a bit. Caleb, on the other hand, was likable from I liked the story itself, though I found myself disliking Bailey for most of the first half of the book. She was a brat, a smart mouth, a spoiled teenager who had no respect for her elders. I didn't like her and aside from the assault, felt like she was digging herself into a hole she was going to have a hard time escaping. That being said, once she spent some time on the ranch and discovered how fulfilling her life could be, she seemed to mature a bit. Caleb, on the other hand, was likable from the moment he entered the moment he entered the picture. He had a lot of mystery about him, but he turned out to be a real hero when she needed one. Of course, he also had some pretty frightening secrets he was keeping. So I ended up being on the fence about him. I actually ended up on the fence about the story itself. I didn't understand why Bailey was such a liability for the Ranch. Nothing about their situation had me feeling like the final decision concerning her life made any sense to me. In the end, I found it confusing and wish it could have been further explained. To me, it leaves a bit of a large plot hole open to swallow the story up and had me wondering what I just read by the time I was finished. I wish I could have known more of what the behind the scenes situation was so I grasped some reasoning for the ending. Also, one of my least favorite POV's is third-person omniscient. To me, it's too confusing. If I have to read sections over more than once in order to figure out who is narrating, there's a problem. And this is something that was consistent throughout the story. The narrative was coming from Bailey's POV, and suddenly it would switch to Caleb's or Uncle Pete's for a few sentences or paragraphs, only to bounce right back to Bailey's. It's too much work for a reader to have to weed through and try to figure out. And it really lended to the confusion of the storyline. Give each POV a section or a chapter, but don't mix them. It was an okay story that could have been so much better if the points of view were more defined and if I understood more of the plot. I felt like it just left me up in the air and feeling confused.

    Interesting story. I'm still very confused about The Ranch. I felt very aggravated with all of the secrecy from the adults there, and don't understand why they felt it necessary to get rid of Bailey.

    Hooked!!! After hearing about this series, I knew I had to read it. I'm hooked!! The story is very relatable, the characters could be your neighbors. And with how the world is going, you know this is happening. Bailey and her young brothers lives are turned upside down, after the death of their parents. The only person willing to keep them, a uncle they never see. Soon they find out why. He is a doomsdayer. The only problem, he doesn't seem to want Bailey, only her brothers. Hooked!!!

    This intriguing story had me glued to the pages. In the blink of an eye, Bailey lost everything she was accustomed to. Now she and her brothers have to live with her uncle but his way of life is far different from what she is use to her bothers are welcomed but she is deemed a threat. She leaves with Caleb but wonders if she will see her brothers again or in fact if group would hurt her.

Bailey and her uncle get off on the wrong foot and at first, her attitude annoyed me but the more I read, the more I realized that she’s 16 and she just lost her parents, her home, her friends, and her perfect life. She really has a right to be upset with her uncle who is great to the twins but isn’t so nice to her. She’s not even given time to mourn. I expected more from this story. Hailey and her brothers end up in a community with their uncle. The people in this community believe that there’s going to be a world catastrophe probably sooner than later and they’re prepared for it. The community members don’t think Bailey will fit in but she really tries and does a good job of it. She works hard and makes friends, especially with 21-year-old Caleb. But can she change the minds of everyone in the community? Samantha Jacobey is a good storyteller and this was a quick and easy read. The one thing that stood out was the use of “the girl” in place of Bailey’s name or the pronoun “she.” I would have preferred Bailey or “she.” The narrator, Sarah Rogers, did a good job enunciating and made it easy to listen to Rendered. The pauses were appropriate and I could differentiate between voices. This was a good start to a series but not really a stand alone book. I’m looking forward to reading the next book and finding out what happens.

It starts out with Bailey Dewitt's parents celebrating their 20th anniversary, but they never make it home. Leaving her and her twin brothers alone until her Nana shows up and starts giving orders. Now the three are headed to Midland Texas to live with their mother's brother Uncle Peter. Whom they haven't seen for years. Bailey is suspicious of him and it seems she has good reason. She learns that Uncle Peter is from a community called Lawson and it is in the middle of the desert. The community is self-sufficient, they have their own power, water, gardens, cattle, horses and other animals and even an airstrip. But what Bailey fears most is that she is not welcome at the Ranch and that leaves her to wonder what they will do to her. She meets Caleb, from the community, and they fight with each other at first but have become good friends. Will Caleb let anything happen to bailey? Will Bailey ever get back to civilization alive? At the beginning Bailey was selfish but then again she was raised that way, she had her own friends and did her own thing. And I wondered how Samantha Jacobey was gonna turn her around. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens.

When tragedy strikes, she is thrown into a world she is completely unaccustomed to, with an Uncle she’s only heard stories of (and not all of them good). They are moved to the south, where her twin brothers are doted on and Bailey feels like an outsider. The story progresses from there and there is a lot of innuendo as to her possible demise if she doesn’t shape up and conform. Caleb is introduced and he has a stalkerish behavior to him, but I wouldn’t mind him stalking me LOL. Needless to say, this story becomes about growing up, coming to terms with life and the very real possibility that we may all be living on borrowed time. What really pulled me into this story is the fact that it is a very real scenario in the world we live in, and it made me think that life isn’t necessarily that far away from fiction. I am completely hooked on this and cannot wait to see the next installment, and how Ms. Jacobey continues to play out our end-of- the-world demise. Don’t pass this story by. Get it now!!

Along the way she meets Caleb Cross who is a light in the new darkness that has become her life but how will he fit into her new life? I really enjoyed this first installment to the series. Bailey quickly went from a self-absorbed teenager to a young adult struggling, but maturing,as she is forced to grow up quickly. Bucking authority is not a new concept but the author weaves it into a story that is refreshing in its twists and turns. A great writing style, a mysterious plot with dark undertones and by the end, I was thoroughly hooked into Bailey's story. I can't wait to see where the series takes it. Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book.

The writing was great and I was definitely flipping pages to see what would happen next. The ending – I was like ‘Nooooooooooooooo’ – I want more and I want it now!!!

    Against everything in me, I found this book fascinating and I really don't know why, except for the expert writing of the author.

As I finished this book and was debating starting the second in the series, I had to ask myself if I wanted to waste another 4 hours of my life on the next book? Would any of the questions I had be answered? The conclusion I came to was no, it would be worth my time.

    3 1/2* I had a really hard time getting into this one at first. I did not like the main character Bailey. I found her to be very selfish and snotty. But then the story got a lot more intriguing and mysterious. I started to like Bailey more and more throughout the book. She became a lot stronger of a person and tried to better herself. I also really liked Caleb. He was the mysterious boy who watched out for her and then you found out he was connected to her uncle. The story was pretty fast paced 3 1/2* I had a really hard time getting into this one at first. I did not like the main character Bailey. I found her to be very selfish and snotty.

The story was pretty fast paced and the big mystery of her uncles home is interesting. I'm curious as to what will happen next in the series.

    I enjoyed this book very much, had a hard time putting it down. Bailey's parents were killed in an auto accident. Her Uncle Peter becomes her and her twin brothers guardian. He takes them to Texas, to finish the school year. Then he takes them to The Ranch, where they live a different kind of life. Caleb was assigned to keep an eye on Bailey when she was in school, became her friend, trainer and protector. At the Ranch they are preparing for the end of the World. A very well written book.

    I won a paperback of Rendered, so I bought Retained and Recombined before starting the series, without even knowing what they were really about. This was the first time I read a series like this… <3 The end of the world and conspiracy theories are not something I am into, but Samantha Jacobey sucked me in and held me till I finished them all. I really enjoyed the entire series and the final book, Recombined, really brought it home! It was such a great series
