This book was previously published in 2015 by another publisher but I received the copy that will be released in August 2017.
I overall enjoyed reading this book. I liked the action, the suspense and the characters.
Although I really liked the storyline one of the main reasons it’s not a five-stars for me is the insta-love. It happens quite often when reading a contemporary romance and I still find it quite not believable but keep reading these books *arrgh*.
Anyway, the story was great although a bit predictable but I really appreciated that there were different POVs making it more complete.
I though Natasha (the female lead) was a bit clueless and there were some moments where she drove me nuts because she just wouldn’t rely on her friends while at the beginning she was so careless with whom she decided to trust. I can’t really complain about any other character because I thought they were quite good.
During the story there were some big jumps in time not really explained which made it a bit confusing and somewhat difficult to follow at times. I didn’t mind the writing although it was a bit messy in some parts and I had to go back and reread the scene; there were also some misspellings but nothing making it hard to follow.
This book is the fourth in a series but I read it as a standalone not having read the previous ones and still managed to follow the storyline without any trouble.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cheyenne McCray is an award winning, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author who is a rare native Arizonan but refuses to be put behind glass as an endangered species.
In her spare time she loves to torture characters—whether they’re misbehaving or not—and kill off deserving individuals. She also totally gets off on blowing things up. All fictionally, of course. She’d rather chew glass than write sweet and sugary. Give her a hideous demon or particularly nasty villain to slay any day.
Cheyenne enjoys creating stories of love, suspense, and redemption—in some cases. She enjoys building worlds her readers can get lost in. Hopefully they’ll find their way out, but stranger things have been known to happen.
