Alyssa Shaw has given up trying to find the perfect man, until she meets Derek Rendall. He's gorgeous and mysterious, seeming to be a fantasy come to life. Alyssa can't get enough of him and believes her luck has finally changed.
Unfortunately Derek is not who he seems, but something else straight out of her darkest nightmares. As their unlikely relationship blooms into a passionate bond, forces are determined to tear them apart. Alyssa must ask herself what she is willing to do for love.
This was a good paranormal romance! Alyssa is trying to get through school and make ends meet with her job on campus. Everything starts with a man in a bar and ends with her meeting the mysterious Derek Rendall and his 'family'. The strange things that happen around Alyssa are consuming most of her thoughts but the rest are devoted to Derek. He is better than she could have ever dreamed, and they have such a connection....but she doesn't know everything about him.
I really liked Alyssa. She was strong, independent and fiercely loyal. She did have her moments but that just made her more real. Her brother coming to stay with her and her roommate was sweet and realistic given all that happened. I liked how close Derek's family was and how protective they were. The bond between Alyssa and Derek was intriguing and I do want to read more about them!
I rate this a 4/5. I will absolutely be reading more from this author.
