Gorgeous, wealthy, and powerful, French-Greek billionaire Christien di Luca was the kind of man who already had everything. Or so most people thought. In truth, the billionaire was damaged inside, in ways that no one would have imagined, and for as long as he could remember he had always been a shadow away from meeting Death halfway –
Until a little mutant came winking into life.
Part-rainbow, part-winking-maniac, part-clown, part-everything-else he needed, Kharis Stamos was the only person in the world able to make him genuinely feel. With her, he didn't need to pretend he knew what anger or pleasure was, didn't need to force himself to laugh or even frown. With her, he could almost believe that he wanted to live---
Until he realized she had lied to him.
Note: STANDALONE, NO CLIFFHANGERS, WITH HAPPY-EVER-AFTER ENDING.

4.5 for me. Okay, I've read almost everything this author's written, so I'm used to what she's done and have seen her style change bit by bit over the years. When I started Christien's story, I TOTALLY fell in love with it. Scenery was different, the approach was different, the billionaire was different. I devoured the whole thing and legit laughed out loud at how horrified he was at the heroine. The change in style was extremely appreciated, and I just couldn't help but love the way things began for him and Kharis. The story took on a more familiar feel towards the end, but the drama was still pretty good. I'm really liking the sorta taboo between Kharis and Christien, and I liked that out of all the billionaires I've met, he's one that seemed truly dark. I just wanted to put him in my pocket T_T Kharis was pleasantly sweet and young, a fresh breeze for me with all the harder characters I've been reading this week. A few times I had to wonder if a character would really do this or that but overall, the book read like a great, optimistic love story between a rainbow girl and a companion of Death. Definitely a book I loved.
