Published by: Kensington
Publication date: February 23rd 2016
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance




Synopsis:

She never wanted to return.
He wants nothing more than for her to leave.
But the fire between them is as strong as the past that haunts them.

Annie Freemont grew up on the road, immersed in the romance of rare things, cultivating an eye for artifacts and a spirit for bargaining. It’s a freewheeling life she loves and plans to continue–until her dad is diagnosed with dementia. His illness forces them to return to Moonhill, their ancestral home on the coast of Maine–and to the family they left behind fifteen years ago, after Annie’s mother died in a suspicious accident.

Once at Moonhill, Annie is shocked when her aunt separates her from her father. The next time Annie sees him, he’s a bizarre, violent shadow of his former self. Confused, she turns to an unlikely ally for support–Chase, the dangerously seductive young groundskeeper. With his dark good looks and powerful presence, Chase has an air of mystery that Annie is irresistibly drawn to. But she also senses that behind his penetrating eyes are secrets she can’t even begin to imagine. Secrets that hold the key to the past, to Annie’s own longings–and to all of their futures. Now, to unlock them, she’ll have to face her greatest fears and embrace her legacy…

I knew this story was going to be good, but not to this caliber.  This book blew my mind with its dark and thrilling roller-coaster ride of pure excitement,.

There was this feeling of something paranormal going on behind the scenes and that's what excited me the most. I'm so glad to know this book is going to be a series! 

There is a little bit of romance, with Annie and Chase. I wish there were more, since they can blow the pages up with their chemistry alone. It didn't detract from the story though. 

I recommend this book to my fellow readers who want a thrilling dark, sometimes paranormal romance that you just can't put down.

****I received this ARC in exchange for an honest Review.****
