Devon Candler is nothing like the helpless, vulnerable woman Liam expected when he agreed to provide security for her secluded Catskill Mountain estate. Yet her life is at risk. Her enemies monsters. Her secrets devastating.
Liam Nash is a trained killer who takes no prisoners, fears no man. But to him this woman is seductively, devastatingly. . .
I’m not really sure what to think about this book. I liked the world view Jax set up. I get the distinct feeling there are other books out there in this series and because of that, I think I was missing something going in. The world building, the explanation for the vampire-like Morphates was fascinating. I liked the idea of a virus that had caused the problem in the first place. The Morphates have forged their own communities, and for the most part are content to live side-by-side with the humans who understandably distrust them, given they’re faster, stronger, etc.
Devon is a very strong character, who has clearly made some errors in her past, and paid for it. Liam has his own problems. They work through them, but it felt a little rushed at times. Originally, they’re both determined to ignore the sexual pull, but then give in to it. And give in to it. And wow. Lots of sex, but that’s not always a bad thing. There was some pretty hot sex in her. Yum.
I want to know more about this world and I’ll have to look up other books by Jax/Jacquelyn Frank in the future. But, for me, this book was a 3-star. Neither spectacular nor bad, just okay. Glad I got to read it!
