Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit, Chicago's newest vampire. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene-and to spy for the vamps while she's at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan's offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.

Unfortunately, someone is gunning for Gabriel, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She'll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals-not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries-old master vampire. 

What I thought:

It seemed like forever for the next installment to come out, but it was definitely worth the wait. While trying not to rush through it, I couldn't help but feel compelled, by the story and characters, to push through and see what would happen next.

The story was great, great twists to where I didn't see the ending coming (don't worry, no spoilers here), and I had a difficult time putting down the book until I finished every last word on the page.

The chemistry between Ethan and Merit, while at times frustrating, showed signs of being a beautiful thing. I know, others feel differently since there is such an age difference between them, but I found the humanity that Merit brought to the table an interesting thing. Even more interesting to see Ethan adapt, after centuries, and become slightly more human despite the odds. Beautiful.

I was thrilled to see the storyline with the pack play out, adding a new dimension to the series, one I hope to see continue as I wait, not so patiently, for the next book.

I gave it 5 stars!
