But when her friend’s daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath,Liv can’t rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.

    Story

    This one really grew on me!

    It took me a little while to get into the story. I felt the same way about the Shifters series, like the main characters took some time revealing themselves. The setting is urban with a bit of grit, and there's a bit of a unique system of paranormal powers at play which the author uses very well. Liv really doesn't have a choice about helping her friend, and the powers she wields and the ties that bind her to the case are all wrapped up together with a great big bow. By the end there'd been a good bit of action and romance (similar level to the Shifters series, if that helps), a couple plot twists, and I was very invested in the characters! I'll definitely buy the next books!

    Another thing that worked very well -- this story is told alternately from Liv's and Cam's points of view. Kudos to the narrator for pulling that off, since not everybody could! I understand the rest of the books in this series are going to do that too, switching to two different people each time while still following the same broader storyline. I think that's a really interesting idea, and so far, so good.

    So yes, this story ends with a lot of unresolved issues! It's not a cliff-hanger ending, but there's plenty of story left to come.

    This is also a mafia story with a paranormal romance twist! If I'd known I might have hesistated to buy the book, but I ended up enjoying this even though mafia stories usually put me off. But then this author has never failed to draw me in for a fun read, so I'm not surprised she could get past my usual reservations. The overall ambiance is sort of old school private gumshoe meets paranormal romance meets mafia story.

    Overall, recommended! Slow starter but lots of plot, interesting characters in tricky situations, good narration.
