An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart. I had a plan. Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right? Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door. That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset.

This is not your typical love story!
I do not usually write reviews, but this series had my emotions all over the place! I was laughing one minute and the next I was in a dark place and the next I was horrified and the next I was like Oh Yummy Hot Irish Guy!! These books were written very well and the author did not leave anything to the imagination! If your looking for your run of the mill love story, this book is not for you! If you looking for an emotional roller coaster this is a must read! I read the first two books and had to take a break before I can go back and read the next one..

Arianna "Ari" Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now, four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal-blue eyes that remind her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on, but the wounds never healed.

The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book, but once I started listening to it, I could not stop!
Laini Taylor has a great imagination, one would have to, to be able to write a story so far- fetched and make it all sound so normal.. I cannot wait for this next installment.
