#1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn series with this second book—a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.
Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.
Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

I really liked this book. I think it was much better than the first one. I love it when the heroine has spine. She may have found it a little late but she found it. I loved the characters and can’t wait to read more.
Great book and a great read. I just loved there story and fell even more in love with Beau. I can't wait to read the next book out.
So much for "slow burn"
Not my favorite Maya Banks novel and not something I'd read again. The characters were a little over dramatized in their romance -- every moment was a high drama moment. Ari was a bit of a shallow character; weak, morally impeccable, and enormously emotional. I enjoy a good beefy save-the-day hero, but I like the heroine to have a bit of a backbone. And to her credit, Ari does toughen up a bit at the very end, but really, the character development wasn't very believable and the romance sort of just was a given.
