I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Stephanie writes in such a manner that it demands to be savored slowly, luxuriously. From the very first page, she had my attention.
Her characters are vibrant and tangible, as though they could be sitting right next to you while you read. The juxtaposition of fear and hope Paige experiences as she goes through a change she neither asked for nor wants is matched only by the curiosity and hints of that elusive “something more” Jed feels but doesn’t want to admit to.
The collection of people Paige amasses over the course of the story is as entertaining as it enchanting, proving that evil doesn’t always mean bad and “angelic” doesn’t always mean good. This is a story you could fall into time and time again. And if you’re looking for another urban fantasy title by Stephanie to read, may I suggest ‘Darkness Reawakened: Reimagined’.
Laugh out loud,steamy, non stop action
This book is part of a series, but can be read alone. For the full character affect I highly recommend reading the rest of the series. The characters in this book are very well thought out, relatable, unique. I love Paige! Paige is so in awe of her friends Becca and Theresa, there is no way she thinks she could ever be as bad a** as either one of them, but she is. She just hasn’t realized it yet. Just when she thinks she finally found the key to being free if Satan she realizes in true Satan form, he has played a dirty trick and now she must find a way around it. What happens next is a hilarious, adventure with a hired assassin that has an agenda of his own.
This series is about finding love, but more importantly about finding friendship, being true to yourself, fighting for your dreams and realizing that you can do anything in this life and you shouldn’t have to do it alone.
More Fun than a Roller Coaster!
I loved all the twists and turns in this book. I fell in love with Paige. She was a great character. She was funny, quirky, optimistic, loved fiercely, and didn’t give up on herself or Jed. She wanted a family so bad and saw the family connection Jed had. She was loyal to her Rivka friends and vice versa.
She and Jed team up which is an unlikely team, but their attraction and chemistry keep them together until their feelings catch up. Together they go through every possible scenario they possibly can to outwit Satan and his son. I don’t want to give away the plot, but it has more twists and turns than the Houston freeways. It was so much fun to see what friend or friend’s friend would lead them to the next crossroads and what else Satan or his son would throw their way. It was a roller coaster ride until the end. It was well worth the read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series where it looks like Jed’s brother, Rafi’s story may be told. I look forward to another ride on the Rowe Express.
