I enjoyed the story line and the characters in this book. Both were well developed. The book has suspense and intrigue. Samantha and Jason are in love and they both are fighting internal demons and PTSD. I liked the story and the intrigue. I felt that the author could have stated much of the dialog differently. I felt that I was reading the same thing over and over. Other than than, I enjoyed this book. It was given to me and I voluntarily reviewed it.

From the moment I started this story it took a hold of me and had me on the edge of my seat flying the through pages, it was so addictive! Every time I wasn't reading it I found myself thinking about it and wondering how things would turn out for all those involved, and wondering who would get the girl. I will admit it wasn't as steamy as the books that I have been reading as of late, but with that being said not all reads have to have a overwhelming steam factor to be considered romantic, this one had a intense feeling factor that kept the romance alive throughout. The story line was inventive and had a nice flow to it, and kept me guessing right up until the very end! I can tell a lot of time and care went into the character development, they were described so well that I was able to visually picture them as I was reading the story and got a good feel for each one of them. Overall I would say it was a very enjoyable first read, and I am certain that I will be checking out more books from this author in the very near future! If you life your fairy tales brimming with mystery and heart then I suggest you give this read a try, it is sure to warm your heart and keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through!!
