Book Blurb: Two years ago, Lilly Frank's mother was brutally murdered--and the killer set free. Since then Lilly has worked hard to create a safe and stable life for herself. But she's thrown off balance when she meets Torren Frisk, a handsome stranger whom she finds both irresistible and frightening. As she spends more time with Torren, Lilly's growing attraction to him threatens to unravel her world. Will she discover his secrets before the life she's worked so hard to build comes crashing down on top of her?

My Rant: Captivating, This story has completely taking me by surprise. In the beginning you have a broken and lost Lilly trying to survive in a world that makes no sense to her. People are cruel and the way they use each other just makes her disgust them more. After the death of her mother Lily completely closes herself off from others emotionally. She is lost
, afraid and longing. I thought this book would be about a women trying to get over her past and that she found someone that loved her and could provide the comfort she needed, so we are introduced to Ethan, who appeared to be the night in shinning armor for our Lilly.

What I found interesting about this book is that you are lead to believe in the lie of Lilly life, or the cover up pertaining to the death of Lilly's mother. The author takes you through Lilly's pain be rehashing her past through dreams. At first I thought I could not connect with Lilly. I felt she was so depressed and repressed that it was hard to make that connection with her. I was completely wrong. Under the complexity of the story I began to admire Lily and her courage. But this is after Torren steps into Lilly's life.

Torren completely unravels Lilly which brings  her out of her shell and at this point I am loving Lilly's transformation. I am understanding her, connecting with her and sharing in her emotions.  I have to blink at myself because I did not expect to feel this way about Lilly. The author has caught me emotionally without me knowing I was caught. As the story continues the author switched the tone of the story. Everything is not what it appears to be and the real knight in shinning amour turns out to be a vampire. I am so blushing right now because I love my vamps especially the ones that wear their hearts on their sleeves, just like Torren. 

Torren actions begins to through this story into a whirlwind and I am so connected at this point i am just holding on to enjoy the ride. In the end we are left with a sexy Torren and a stronger Lilly that you are yearning to know whats going to happen next. What will come next in the Lilly Frank Series now that she has found herself. I guess we will have to wait until the next installment is out.

My Recommendation: 

I enjoyed the authors writing style and the way she formed Lilly's story to catch the readers while they least expect it was tremendously and influence to my review rating. I rated this book 4 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and I would recommend this book  to paranormal book lovers.
