The Modified by C.A. Kunz
Goodreads | Barnes & Noble | Amazon | Smashwords

What would you sacrifice to save the one’s you love? To save the one who holds your heart? To save the world?

Kenley Grayson is all too familiar with these questions.

After Earth is thrust into its first intergalactic war with an unknown race called the Bringers, our military forces begin to suffer heavy losses. Desperate for a solution, the Allied Federation issues a worldwide draft for every able seventeen year old to enlist. As Kenley turns seventeen, she finds herself thrown into the very war that took her older brother’s life.

This year’s draft is a little different than in the past though. A new program, known as the Magnus Project, has been introduced, and only the best and brightest qualify. Kenley is amongst a select few whom are chosen to join this elite group of soldiers, and as a part of this project, undergoes a modification procedure that leaves her and her peers endowed with powers beyond their wildest dreams.

As Earth continues in its struggle against the Bringers, Kenley is transported to a high-tech training facility, the Magnus Academy, to prepare for the major battle that lies ahead. It’s here that she meets the California heartthrob, and son of a legendary war hero, Landon Shaw. As unexpected feelings toward Landon begin to develop, Kenley wonders if this is the right time or place for romance to bloom, especially when those feelings start to interfere with her training.

With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Kenley is constantly reminded of how important she and the rest of the Magnus cadets are to the fate of humanity. She is one of the Modified, Earth’s last line of defense against utter destruction.
I love, love, love C.A. Kunz and everything that is them so when I heard about The Modified I was SUPER excited because it just sounded like my kind of book.  The Modified exceeded any kind of expectations I had for it!  I really, really, truly loved it!  

Even though the romance was a part of why I liked it (because it always is), The Modified had so much more to offer.  My favorite thing was the world development.  The way this dystopian world was described I was able to completely submerge myself in it.  I love books that I can completely get lost in and this was definitely one of them.  I also thought the unfolding of information and mystery was done perfectly.  It kept my attention the whole time and I was never able to completely anticipate what was around the corner!  

Landon....must I say more than his name?  It alone is swoon worthy.  :D Okay just kidding I will tell you why you should swoon at the mention of his name.  Well first of all he is one of the sweetest book boyfriends I've ever had.  He is just perfect for Kenley.  They find each other in such tragedy where happiness shouldn't be a possibility, but now they have the happiness because they have someone to lean on.  Now for some quotes from the book so you can swoon a little too.
"my gaze fixes on a single guy. My heart skips a beat. He’s unlike any guy I’ve ever seen. I mean, there have been guys I’ve had crushes on back home, but there’s something so different about him. His sun-kissed skin and beautiful chestnut brown hair takes my breath away. I never thought I’d feel this way, especially not while in my current situation." (page 42)   
"Our eyes meet and he mouths good morning. I mouth it back to him and smile shyly. Could he get any cuter? I mean, seriously. He has to have some major flaw, I tell myself." (page 91)
 Okay so we now that you have gotten a taste of Landon, I thought I would talk a little bit about the supporting characters that I absolutely love.  I know I've said this before, but one of my favorite things about C.A. Kunz's writing in general is the complexity of the supporting characters.  I always fall in love with them almost as much as I do the main characters.  Joey, Sam, and Gailieo were my favorites in this book.  Joey has been with Kenley all her life and he is basically family.  Their relationship is very meaningful and I loved watching their support for each other as they became soldiers.  Sam is that sassy girl that everyone can't help to fall in love with.  She says what's on her mind and most of the time it's freakin' hilarious.  And Galileo...well he isn't exactly human but he grows as a character so much and is Kenley's support when she is alone.  Here are some quotes to give you a little taste of Joey and Sam.
“Just so you know, if we die...I’m going to be really pissed at you,” Joey whispers. (page 15) 
“Uh-oh, boy trouble three o’clock,” Sam whispers at me jokingly from across the table. “Shut up,” I reply playfully. “It’s not like that.” She laughs. “Okay, Grayson. Whatever you say.” (page 71) ~Sam
If you're ready to get completely lost in a world that you'll fall in love with, The Modified is for you.  Any dystopian, sci-fi, romance lover should read The Modified because I'm sure it will rock your socks off like it did mine!
