Onboard the Anna, Amanda suspects that something fishy is going on. But when her investigation of the peculiar all-female Russian crew fails to uncover anything other than more speculation, she decides it's time to stop playing detective and face her real problem - a man she shouldn't want but can't live without.

My belief is that it has way too many POV's, far too many stories involved that I'm bored.

Not a whole lot of action but mainly character build ups on some upcoming stories but I thought Amanda and Dalhu had some sweet and lol moments. She's spunky and a fighter, nothing like boring, whinny and emotional Syssi. Kian deserves someone that is not nor acts like a child.

When Kian confesses his true nature, Syssi is not as much shocked by the revelation as she is wounded by what she perceives as his callous plans for her. If she doesn't turn, he'd be forced to erase her memories and let her go. His family's safety demands secrecy - no one in the mortal world is allowed to know that immortals exist. Resigned to the cruel reality, Syssi is determined to enjoy what little time she has with Kian, one day at a time.

Tried so hard to love this series but I just couldn't get into the main 2 characters. She drove me nuts with irritation but.....I did love Amanda so I will be reading her stort next. Wish there was more action but there is only a lot of talking.

I did enjoy this 1st book, however, I was sooooooooo sick and tired of her blushing every 2 minutes. I mean come on!!!! She acts like she 13 yrs old and it is so very frustrating to the point where I thought about not finishing the book. If it wasn't for the high reviews of this series I would have stopped. Hopefully she grows up in the next book. And the other thing I wasn't too pleased about was all the POV's from other people besides the main characters. I'm not interested in the bad guys POV nor some insignificant guy that dies. Two POV's is ok but not like 6 of them! Too much.

I tried so hard to like this book because I adore Rune but there was nothing there. No chemistry (my opinion) between him and Carling and I was bored, with the only exception when he went into her "fazes". I wanted to quit so many times but my love for Rune pressed me forward. Glad it is over.

I'm truly sorry but I did NOT like this book! Between the bickering, jealousy, misunderstandings , fighting and stupid Tate throughout the entire book, well at least 75% of it, I was depressed and wished I would have stopped at book 3. And I'll say it again....Tate is a jerk and needs to man up but he acts like a little kid!! Can't stand that character and am completely surprised how some reviews like him. WTH???!!!! I didn't even feel like writing a review but thought I would throw my two cents worth in. Loved the 1st three though but won't be reading the next 2. I'm done with the drama. Will say this about the narrator....she is really good. Sometimes got tired of her English accent. A bit too shrilly and not masculine enough but good enough to press through.

Ok, so I went ahead and read these 2 books about Caylin and Aiden thinking I wouldn't really like them that much but I was very pleasantly surprised on how much I truly loved them. It had all the main characters plus some new ones that grow on you. I understand that West kept this PG rating but I had hoped for more passion like Mason and Jess story but let me tell you that Aiden can bring hotness into any situation so it kept it interesting. Loved the LOL moments again but it is pretty funny when Caylin makes Aiden blush, which to be honest is weird because he's "been around the block" for centuries that I'm surprised he can blush. I would definitely NOT skip these 2 books because it explains so much and opens the doors for the upcoming Alternate Earth series. Now on to reading Aiden's story!

** Spoilers** Loved this book and the ending nearly undid me! Yes, there was a lot more sex in this one but it wasn't poorly done. The epilogue was so sweet and was glad that Mason and Jess get their HEA which includes their wedding and upcoming baby. I didn't read the books with Lilly and Brand story but I will for sure be reading Aidan's live story with their daughter and of course the books with Malcolm's story as well.
