Arianna had relaxed quite a bit during our conversation. Her demeanor was casual as she played with the strap of her shoe. Her laugh came naturally. It was easy to pretend that we were still together as we sat there talking. Our arms were even touching. It sent a jolt of electricity down my spine to feel my skin against hers again. It felt like we were finally shifting, finally moving in the right direction. It was everything I’d hoped tonight would be.

After a brief pause in talking about our summer plans, Arianna pursed her lips and said, “Why have we never been friends before now? We’re in the same grade, and we must have had classes together before… but I don’t recall ever seeing you before a couple of months ago.”

I sighed, not sure how to answer that. “I don’t know… We must have just kept missing each other. But I’m so glad that’s not the case anymore. You… there’s just something about you. You’re kind, warm, accepting. You see past people’s faults, to the person they are underneath. You’re patient, forgiving, and open to things that are a little… different. But you don’t take crap from anyone either, and you stand up for what you believe in. You’re just… amazing.”

Her expression was blank. “You saw all that, sitting across the room from me?”

I peeked up at her with a small smile that I couldn’t hide. “I see you, Arianna. I see the real you.” Straightening, I met her eye and held her gaze. “And I really like what I see.”

Arianna held her breath as we stared at each other. Her heart rate spiked, and I momentarily felt bad that I could hear it. She’d probably be embarrassed if she knew I could. But then her eyes drifted to my lips, and I really didn’t care that I had a slight advantage. All I cared about was whether she wanted me to kiss her right now. Was she ready to see me as more?

I leaned in, tentative and unsure. Maybe I was misinterpreting this. Maybe, because I wanted it so badly, I was seeing something that wasn’t there. My heart was thumping in my chest so loudly, Nika probably thought I was doing something much more strenuous than just sitting on a bed, staring at Arianna, and waiting for our second first kiss to happen.

I have followed this series throughout. I would definitely suggest that you read all books in order, because otherwise it might feel as though you are missing pieces of the story, as well as dynamics between family members.

Julian is struggling with the decisions of the past few months. He feels like he's lost his sister somewhat, he's lost the love of his life, and he wants to be more involved with keeping his family safe. While he's still in school, he knows that he's going to be losing out on his chances with the love of his life and he doesn't make the best decisions when it comes to that.

Nika is working to accept her new reality. While she doesn't love the fact that her dad is so strict, she understands, to a point. When outside forces try to tear her family and way of life apart, she also has to contend with her sire's issues and her brother's unhappiness, in part due to her situation.

At times, this book felt a little drawn out – I felt that it could have been condensed and been just as good. I liked how complex the situations became with the hunters and appreciated what each side was trying to accomplish.

The secondary characters were necessary and helped to further the story along, as well as give alternative perspectives throughout.

Overall, this was a good ending and I felt that most things were resolved.

S.C. Stephens is a bestselling author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.

Her debut novel, Thoughtless, an angst-filled love triangle charged with insurmountable passion and the unforgettable Kellan Kyle, took the literary world by storm. Amazed and surprised by the response to the release of Thoughtless in 2009, more stories were quick to follow. Stephens has been writing nonstop ever since.

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys spending lazy afternoons in the sun reading fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer’s block reducing music, heading out the movies and spending quality time with her friends and family. She currently resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her two equally beautiful children.
