I really wanted to like this story because it has a great concept; unfortunately the elements that I didn’t like were far too many for me to enjoy this book.
Some of the characters (like Sam and Autumn) are intriguing and kept the story fresh. However, I just had problems with the way the main characters were portrayed. The story focuses heavily on two elements that have become my pet peeves when reading books, the love triangle between Noel, Jared and Boone and her “lust at first sight” reaction to both guys.
The reason I love the Paranormal Romance genre so much is that it gives me a good balance between the romance and a plot. But I need a balance of the two, I just feel like many aspects of the story were taken for granted without any real explanation. For example, Sam (Noel's sister) has been missing for 12 years, yet she knows a great deal of minor details from Noel's and Autumn's life, like where does Autumn parks her car. I know she is clairvoyant and that it could technically be explained as her keeping tabs on her sister and her best friend, but the explanation is not there, nor any of the characters seem to even notice. In the end, it’s an interesting story, it just wasn’t for me.
