Miriam’s life is a hot mess. Ben won’t let her go and she knows she can’t take anymore. She simply will not and cannot withstand another insult, another drunken rage, another blow. But she has nowhere to go, no one to help her.
One night, Ben’s alcohol-fueled abuse explodes hotter than it ever has before, and Miriam isn’t sure she’ll survive it this time.
Then Miriam meets Jack. Sweet, handsome, brave, and totally unafraid of the strange and often scary things that have begun happening whenever Miriam’s emotions run high.
As things between Miriam and Jack heat up, so does Ben’s jealous rage, as well as the mysterious fire that seems to burn hotter and hotter inside Miriam. She quickly discovers two things: one, that she has a lot more power and strength hidden within herself than she’d ever imagined, and two, that Jack’s gentle, unwavering love can heal a lifetime of wounds and scars.
Will they survive to explore all that could be between them?

This was a very different read from her other books. I enjoyed it just the same.

This book grabbed my attention from the beginning. I enjoyed the method of past and present in the telling of the story. This technique was well done, not confusing or sloppy. The paranormal aspect was also fresh and just a little different. I truly enjoyed this book. I will read more books by Ms. Wilder.

I was gifted this book by the fabulous Jasinda Wilder! Like all of her books, I fell right into the storyline. I'm a fan of paranormal romance/suspense books and this one did not disappoint. I liked the paranormal angle that didn't involve the normal shapeshifter/vampire story line. It was fresh and eye opening. I say eye opening because there was a fair amount of physical and mental abuse that I was not expecting. The only thing it was missing was a disclaimer or warning in the beginning (or synopsis) because there was enough abuse to possibly be a trigger for some people.
That being said, Jasinda did write a heartfelt letter at the end about abuse. For the people that view Mariam as weak for sticking with someone that abuses her, I felt Jasinda's letter made it more understandable.
Overall I gave the book 4 stars because the story line was great, the characters were well developed and likable. I'm excited for the next book to come out.
