Book Description

**For mature readers only, contains adult content**

On her own since the day she turned eighteen and left the group home where she grew up, twenty-five year old Alexa Ryan has made a comfortable life for herself. She has a great job, the perfect apartment, every material possession a girl her age could desire. Unfortunately, she also has an unusual condition which has forced her to keep everyone at a distance.

Ethan Kellar has spent his entire life running from destiny. When he was just a boy, a powerful seer prophesied his role in events that would determine the outcome of the secret war his people had been fighting for centuries. A role he was determined not to accept, leading him to avoid letting anyone get too close, until the night Alexa fell into his arms.

Drawn to her in a way he has never experienced, Ethan decides to take the ultimate risk by trusting Alexa and revealing to her all he truly is. Thinking she is an ordinary woman, he believes she is the key to preventing the prophecy from being fulfilled and allowing him to live the life he has always wanted, one he chooses. Having been so consumed with the desire to determine the course of his own life he wants no less for Alexa and knows he must tell her everything, give her a choice. Before that happens they surrender to the intense physical attraction between them and he realizes too late that in trying so hard to change his fate, he may have set the events of the prophecy in motion.

In that moment, Ethan makes the most difficult decision of his life and does the only thing he can to save Alexa. He walks away.

Consumed by grief, Alexa falls into a deep depression until she learns her brief encounter with love resulted in a child and somehow finds the strength to put herself back together for the sake of her baby Chloe.

Nearly two years after Ethan walked out Chloe develops an unexplained illness which sends Alexa in search of anything that can help. Her pursuit leads her back to Ethan and thrusts her into his dark and mysterious world, unlocking the secrets of her past and revealing threats to their future. Together, Alexa and Ethan fight to protect Chloe and their love, but there is one battle Ethan fights alone as he struggles to choose his own path and avoid the choices of fate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger = not for me April 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I despise cliffhangers in a book. Finish the book!!! If your writing is compelling enough, readers will read every single thing you write. Coercion is not a nice way to sell additional books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nope... May 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is extremely well written...until the end. (SPOILER ALERT!) The h/h characters are developed enough to become invested in throughout the story, however the heroine dies in the end by her husband's hand, leaving him in anguish and a growing daughter to look after. After that unpleasant cliffhanger, the next book in the sequel seems to be about Ethan's sister and his daughter. The thing is, I no longer care. I hate these kind of books, over 300 pages long that end with a lousy cliffhanger! I am deleting this, since I don't care what hapens next.

REVIEWED FOR SWOON WORTHY BOOKS

Let me start by saying I LOVED this book. I hope the author doesn't mind me saying this, but if you want an adult version of Twilight then you will love this book. It has vampires and a complicated love story that tugs at your heart just enough. I believe it's classified as Paranormal Erotica? I would say while the sex scenes are fully loaded I don't think they were tacky. The scenes were will written and moderately mild compared to what is out there.
The author did a fantastic job of incorporating back story into the present day plot. The flow was flawless and the writing was seamless. I am not one to recap stories, so I won't. While the relationship between Ethan and Alexa happened literally overnight, the author explained it well so that it fit in with the story and didn't seem rushed or unfounded.
The character development unfolded at such a great pace that I thought it was next to perfection. Let's talk about Ethan first. He is a sexy, sweet, independent, defiant...need I go on? Alexa is sweet and guarded, but tough enough to withstand the difficulties of her upbringing and the hardships of taking care of a less than ordinary child by herself. The secondary characters introduced in the last part of the book have a lot of potential to play an important part in the next book and add more WOW and HOTNESS factors. I can't wait! Jared sounds delicious!
I would definitely recommend this series to paranormal fans! I loved the writing, the story, the characters, and the plot. I found myself wanting to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. Reader be warned, though, there is a cliff hanger. A definite 5 stars from me!

3.0 out of 5 stars a little bit of this, a little bit of that October 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
largely predictable and yet the author made me care about the characters. A few typos throughout the book, nothing major, just a tad irritating. Slightly juvenile (twilight-esque) but still enjoyable despite obvious "borrowing" from previous books & movies (not just the telepathy).

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously? May 29, 2014
By Karla
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the main character, Alexa, too bad the author thought it was clever to kill her off.... Am I willing to pay to see what happens next? ummmmmm NO! I normally do not reveal parts of the book in a review, but I feel like readers deserve the warning, in this case!

This is an "adult" version of Twilight with a dash of True Blood, House of Night, The Vampire Diaries, (and any other vamp series you've read) blended in with some twists. If you like the genre, then you'll be getting a blend of stories you've already read. There's not much originality within the pages, but the slight twists on the same-old-story make it interesting enough. When I say "adult" I mean it. There's a lot of sex, a lot of sex talk, and words that you don't even hear very often in rated R movies. That said...

The good:

The plot is decent, the characters are likeable, and it's a free book. If you enjoy any of the popular vampire series out there and are a fan of sex-filled plots, this is a freebie you'll enjoy.

The bad:

1) Grammatical and spelling errors throughout.

2) Husked. Apparently vampires don't talk, or ask, or question, or imply, etc. They husk. She husked, he husked, they all husked. I found it both distracting and annoying.

3) ¿Hablas español? If you don't, good luck. Some of the dialogue is basic Spanish, like the pet name "Amor". But later on, there is dialogue between the family that is in Spanish. So, you'll either need to stop reading and run find a way to translate it... or skip over it (like I did) and wonder what the heck they are talking about. (FYI- it didn't seem to matter that I skipped these parts.)

4) Disappearing Doggie. (Slight Spoiler Alert)

The main character, Alexa, has a wonderful dog named Tilly. Tilly has been her sole companion through the loneliest and hardest times of her life. Tilly saves Alexa's life in more ways than one, and to hear Alexa tell it the dog is her best friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive and Fabulous January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story by far is one of the best series I have read. I was addicted and couldn't put it down! I read a book within a day and was glad I was on vacation because I think I would have come home early to finish it. The characters are awesome and the book flys by! Excellent series!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had such potential and I love the idea behind it, but if I had to hear Ethan call her "Mi Amour" one more time I was going to vomit. It was just disappointing.
