I'd loved the two previous books, so I was more than a little excited to get my hands on this latest installment in the series. This one is more like the first book in that it’s more of a straight-forward romance with some paranormal elements. Yet, like the second book, it’s also more serious in nature. You can witness the sparks between Alicia and Theo from the very first moment they’re introduced to one another. And the sarcastic sniping and back-biting carries them through most of the book. Occasionally this pair left me dizzy with their push-me/pull-you dynamic that had them swinging from lust to loathing and back again – it was never as simple as love and hate. Add in the vengeful plotting of a bitter, jealous ex-best friend and the drama quotient goes up another notch. I loved seeing both Alicia and Theo learn how to come out from behind the fortresses that protected their hearts and were able to see one another for the lovable human being they were behind the masks.
