Kyran Rousseau’s gloomy nature has a name, one that is potentially fatal under the right circumstances. His family harbors secrets and does everything to protect Kyran. While, he doesn’t want to ruin Marjorie’s normal life, love has a way of changing his plans.
Falling for Kyran is the least of Marjorie’s worries. With a faceless threat hunting her and a boyfriend who's as dangerous as he is good looking—how can Marjorie and Kyran keep all hell from breaking loose before it’s too late?
Story Line: Since I read the description of this book I was hooked. However, I have to say that this book...COMPLETELY lived up to my expectations!!! I loved the mystery behind Kyran and his family, it just made me want to read the book even more to find out what's going on with them. Then, when I find out one of their secrets Centeno throws another secret surrounding a certain character and it raises the stakes that much more.
Kyran: OMG!!! He is sexy, mysterious, haunted, charming, brooding, funny, drop dead gorgeous, charismatic, and everything perfect!!! I couldn't have ask for a better leading character to balance out Marjorie. I loved how haunted and tormented his character was and even through everything he is faced with he's still charming, funny, and lovable. You'll want to read the book to find out his big secret that you'll never see coming. (P.S.-Read the excerpt below and you'll know why I'm gushing and fangirling so much over Kyran!!! P.S.S.-HE'S A TWIN!!!!)
Marjorie: I really enjoyed reading about Marjorie's character because she makes an almost 360 turn around from the person she used to be in the first couple of pages of the book. When I first started reading about her character I didn't think I would enjoy it that much but as the book progressed I started to enjoy her character more and I loved the ass kicking heroine she turned into. In all the thing that would describe her the best is one phrase: she won't go down without a fight.
Alexis/Josephine/Gage/Tracy: These were some of the supporting characters but they sure had their voices heard, especially Alexis. I have to say there there might be a Wendy Higgins Love Triangle going on with one of the supporting characters. I absolutely love the little competition even though it's all harmless, it just adds some spice, hot sauce really (lol), to the book and keeps it interesting. These supporting characters help the book come together and I love them as much as I love the main characters.
Overall: In all I loved the characters, their personalities, and the mystery surrounding this whole book. I would definitely recommend this book if your into mystery, paranormal, romance. It's a definite must read and I'm so glad I got to read it.
Rating: I would give this book an 9.
Excerpt:The bat connected with something solid, and a soft grunt escaped the man’s lips, followed by a
soft oath that would’ve put even the meanest of sailors to shame.
“Are you trying to kill me? What the hell are you doing?”
Wait just a second, I know that voice.
“Kyran? Kyran!” I couldn’t believe my eyes. He really was standing there, clad in nothing but a
pair of jeans.
“Are you trying to behead me?” His expression was one of puzzlement and anger combined.
“I was, actually.” He rubbed his forearm vigorously and I deduced that was where the bat made
contact. Boy, I had the worst aim ever. How did I manage to hit his arm when I was aiming for
“Why?” he snapped.
That did it. That tone he used infuriated me all over again. “Oh, hold on just a second here. I
should be asking all the questions, not you. What the hell are you doing roaming around my
house in the middle of the night anyway? What kind of sick pervert are you?”
“This isn’t your house. Haven’t you noticed we’re in the middle of the woods?” God, I wanted to
slap him so bad.
“The hell we are! This is my father’s land and you’re trespassing.” He scoffed, and I had the
sudden urge to go for a second blow. This close, I was pretty confident I would make a crude
indentation in his skull.
“Do you enjoy peeping at other people? Is that, like, something you get off on?”
Had I not been so angry, I would’ve laughed at his expression. His face registered shock,
disbelief, and surprise all at once.
“No! I’m not that kind of person,” he barked.
“Really? ’Cause I’m pretty sure it was you I saw here last night, and I’m really pissed off right
now. You better have a good excuse as to why you’re walking around on my father’s property
He turned his face away and refused to answer.
“All right, I’m calling the police.” I didn’t have my cell, but hell, he didn’t know that.
“What’re you going to call the police with, the bat?”
Damn him. “No, I…have…my cell.” Somewhere out there, where it’s doing me no good.
He sneered. “Right.”
“You didn’t answer my question, Kyran. What’re you doing out here?”
“What’re you doing out here?”
“Damn it, Kyran, don’t test me because I’ll knock that pretty little head of yours right off those
broad shoulders.” Was I giving him a compliment while simultaneously threatening to decapitate
him? Leave it to me to come up with a sentence like that one.
“I’d like to keep my pretty little head, thank you very much,” he said hotly. His answer, however
sarcastic it was, almost made me laugh and I had to bite my lower lip to keep from smiling. He
looked so cute when he was annoyed.
