This book starts off with a hook, gives you a good yank, and then reels you in. Exciting from beginning to end, with only a few stumbles a long the way. There was a little repetition in thoughts between characters (who weren't telepathic), which was just a little detail most readers probably wouldn't notice. The story line was different from anything else I had read, and that was a nice change. I do need to say that I have not read the first book, so can't compare the two. Although, from what I gathered in the little reminders sprinkled throughout, I probably wouldn't have liked it much due to the love triangle plot it had woven through it.

Sam was a great character. The quintessential tortured soul whose had his heart ripped out by his supposed best friend (Book 1) and has spent the last three years getting over his heartache and trying to make a different life for himself outside of the "Goddess" world. Thinking he'd finally been successful at both, by running his own bar, and avoiding friends from his Goddess years, in walks Riley (literally). Convinced she's crazy due to a combination of recent events in her life, Riley has nowhere else to turn. Cyber-stalking Sam on Facebook, she finds out about the Society and the Education and Defense school, for whom he used to work. Being male, she figures he's safer than going to the Society itself, because she's been raised to believe the worst of the Goddesses. Thus begins a whirlwind trip crisscrossing the US with Sam and others from the Society, where Riley searches for the truth of her family and learns the value of friends, trust, loyalty, and a little bit of lust along the way. Sam and Riley have great chemistry and both deserve a HEA after all they've been though and this book delivers. I can't wait to continue their story and find out what happens in the ending of this trilogy!

One of the things that I like best about my kindle is that I CAN'T flip the book to re-read the synopsis when I am reading a book. I find myself pleasantly surprised, more often than not, as I'm reading by how much I am enjoying the book. My kindle is also breaking me from my cover habit. I DO judge books by their covers: the covers are what draws me in to pick it up and flip it over and read the blurb. This cover did exactly the same thing. *Fans face* Mmmm paranormal romance, hot body, why is his hand smoking?!

This was an unexpected delicious read from Entangled Publishing, one of my favorite publishers in their many hats (Covet, Bliss, Teen, Indulgence, Edge, etc). Unexpected because I wasn't expecting the offer to read it!

Now, I have not read book 1 in the Goddesses Rising series, but luckily I did not have to. The history of Sam (and Quinn and Nick) are nicely summarized for you in the course of the story. I liked Riley; she's feisty and strong enough to look for help when she needs it. The attraction between her and Sam is subtle, but intense at the same time. The plot moved steadily forward and the ending leaves you wanting more. This is not a cliffhanger ending, but the main plot threads are ready to be continued!

I did want to know more of the history of the goddesses so I will be picking up book one. There is some explanation, but not full enough in this book to satisfy me! I'm insatiable, what can I say? I found the powers to be interesting and look forward to Riley discovering more of her powers now that the immediate threat is at an end and she can test with someone like Quinn. At least...I hope that is what lies in store further in the series; Riley & Sam making an appearance like Nick & Quinn in this one!

A thoroughly enjoyable quick-read paranormal romance.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Marta C:
*Copy gifted for an honest review
--Actual rating 4.5 Skulls

My first read from this author, and truthfully I didn't quite know what to expect. This is the second book in her Goddesses Rising series, and follows on from Under The Moon. Is it fantasy? Romance? Urban? Well yes, somehow it's all of those and yet more. I don't know how I missed this author, but in some ways it reminds me of the Weather Warden series that I stumbled on by chance and then was equally blown away by. I love that these books challenge being pigeon holed and you as a reader just go for a fantastic ride.

In this tale we meet Riley, who is on the run from those who seem to want to profit from her gift. Riley has the ability to make metal bend to her will, and believes an organization that protects those they call goddesses might be able to help her. She's truly not sure whom to trust, and seeks out Sam, who previously worked with the organization, but when they meet all hell breaks loose.

Can Riley really trust Sam, and more to the point, will he want to become involved? He had his heart broken and has been running since, so why would he want to get involved? They find themselves embroiled in much more than either of them anticipated and embark on a journey to shake their very beliefs.

This is a book that pulls you in from the very beginning. It's chock full of twists and turns and the action is non stop. I was truly sucked in from the start. The passion between Sam and Riley smoldered, yet didn't quite deliver for me. Still, I loved that it had such a unique view on humanity and our origins and would most definitely recommend it.

This is a well written book that deserves an audience.
