Elixir by Hilary Duff is the first book of the Elixir Series.  It's YA/paranormal/romance, and I have to give it a 4/5 star rating.

I really did not want to like this book.  I mean, really, how good can a book written by Lizzie McGuire be?  But dang it, if I did not put down the book and go straight to Amazon looking for the sequel!

Personally, I don't believe in soulmates.  Rayna relishes the concept
She adores the breathless romance of a brand-new relationship.  It's a
drug for her; nothing makes her feel more alive.  And each time that whirlwind
of ecstasy sweeps her away, she truly believes that this time it's real; this time 
it's forever.  No matter how often she's let down and disappointed, Rayna
remains endlessly optimistic about the prospect of true love.  It's an attitude 
I can't relate to at all, but in her I admire it to no end.

Now, I can't say that it is the best book that I have read, but the story really does draw you in.  All together, it is not what you would expect, but in a good way.

Amazon Summary:
Clea Raymond is a talented photojournalist and the daughter of high-profile parents. Usually she’s in total control of her camera, but after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, eerie, shadowy images of a strange and handsome young man begin to appear in Clea’s photos—a man she has never seen in her life.
When Clea suddenly encounters this man in person she is stunned—and feels an immediate and powerful connection. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance and discover the centuries-old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fate, together they race against time to unravel their past in order to save their future—and their lives.
