Overview

Professionally edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and re-released 2/12/14.
Traumatized by her past, and struggling to move on from it, Sera has spent the past three years of college hiding herself from the world and content to stay that way. A chance encounter with Liam shatters her sheltered world, leaving her stunned and shaken by the strange feelings and emotions he arises in her, feelings she never thought she would experience and that frighten her in their intensity. Harboring a dark and deadly secret of his own, Liam knows that he should stay away from Sera; that he will only bring her more hurt, but he is irresistibly drawn to her and unable to deny himself the pleasure that only she can bring to him. But when their pasts collide with their present, and Liam’s true nature is revealed, will their love for each other be enough, or will they be torn apart forever?

This book is 733 pages and let me tell you it was worth it. I couldn't put it down. It was a really great read. Romance, suspense, and intrigue. This is the first book I read by this author, glad I choose it. I am reading another book by this author called Destined it has 713 pages finally books that have enough pages to read and be great until the end.

While you show a lot of promise bad editing can really detract from a story. These were repeated vocabulary errors: Using: Withered instead of writhed Sedated instead of sated Than when you meant then To when sentance called for too Too when the sentance called for to Had these errors only appeared once I'd have put them down to typos, but they were repeated numerous times throughout the story. Goal here is not to be hyper-critical; just offer some constructive feedback to pay attention to vocabulary and word usage.

This was a great story. I loved the story line. I couldn't put it down. Spent 3 nights reading it and accidently stayed up until after 4:00am twice. Sweet ending:)

First the good. I liked the overall story line. It flowed nicely and the characters were interesting. The bad. It was a bit cheesy. Everything was done "softly." "He chuckled softly." "She smiled softly." "Moaned softly" etc etc... The dialogue felt forced. I found myself trying to rephrase some of the sentences to make them less awkward. Seemed like it was written for younger readers except it is jam packed with graphic sexual situations. Ok for a free book but I wouldnt pay for it.

Really enjoyed this story!! This is ment for young adults and older due to sexual interactions. This really is nothing like twilight, no love triangle, no warewolves. This book was a very entertaining page turner at over 770 pgs, and it's free. Don't pass this up.

I really loved this book I couldn't wait to see what happened next I loved it from the first chapter to that last I love how many different elements were incorporated to keep you wanting to read what happens next the suspense, steamy romance, the bond of friendship when reading I felt like I was experiencing what Sera was going through in each situation feeling scared, happy, frustrated, love ect, ect these are just a few reasons why I loved the story so much that I read all 773 pages in one sitting. Highly reccomended don't pass this one up happy reading. :)

This book was garbage. Coming from an English major who spends the majority of her time reading, this was pretty bad. I saw many grammatical errors while reading, along with incorrect word choices and confusing transitions. The author jumped around with the chsracters way too often with too little notice. Also this book is very unoriginal because it has many similarities to the Twilight series, excluding the sex scenes. The plot was okay but overall this felt more like a rough draft than a finished product.

I feel like I've read this story before... Promising story, but hard to read. Poorly edited & disjointed storyline. Feels like a bad Twilight meets Snowbound (Elizabeth Kirke) meets 50 Shades. Wasted time!

Its great that this medium offers opportunities to so many writers. I didn't care that the story was predictable. when i see repeated misuse of too instead of to and than instead of then; I am convinced this story teller needs to first learn the primary medium of communication......English language!

What's up with the amateur editors, just let us know if you liked the book or not.. and the other thing that drives us crazy is the unnecesary long review get ti the point you are not critics..

I really wanted to like this book. I love paranormal romance, but this one just wasn't that impressive. The main female character was frustratingly weak. I understand there was past trauma, but rather than learning and becoming stronger from the experience she is scared and meek through almost the entire story. If you don't mind a weak female and super over the top male "protection" then this is the book for you.

This was a great book. Full of mystery, romance, vampires and revenge. Wish there were a sequel.

Ok for any younger kid getting ready to read this here is some advice, if u don't want a book with sex in it all u have to do is look at the cover if two people are practically on top of each other... there's obviously going to be sex. Forthermore this book is placed under the adult catagory. This auther worked extrmley hard to write this book and doesn't deserve bad reviews just because you didn't realize this book is clearly adult.

Not reallly impressive. Another Twilight-esc copy but with less depth.

It was an amazing read. I had no idea that Liam was a vampire. The only that i wondered about was if they told her friends the truth or not because at the end they were beung picjed up from the airport. Other than that it was wonderful

Its no Twilight and DEFINATELY no Black Dagger Brotherhood. But it was entertaining. I liked seeing her twist on the quirks of being a vampire. I will say, it was painfully obvious at times that she's read a lot of the same books the rest of us have. Some lines seemed almost word-for-word. To me, that was mildly distracting. Overall, this is the best free book i'm gotten yet. I was entertained and I liked the characters. Well done.
