Fantasy/Paranormal/New Adult Romance
Date Published: 11/15/2013
Cassie Scot,still stinging from her parents’ betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn’t letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them.
To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness.
Like the title suggests, this book abounds with secrets and everybody seems to have good reasons to lie and perpetuate the cover-ups and bad blood. Set in a small town located on a powerful fey node, this town bursts with paranormal activity. Cassie Scot is having a difficult time making ends meet since her parents disowned her. She is morose also because of the life debt she owes Evan, a powerful sorcerer. For Cassie, though, all her problems must be set aside when two young girls disappear from summer camp.
Magic and mischief take place in this second installment of the Cassie Scott series. I enjoyed the action and the mystery. I got a little frustrated with the “hot and cold” romance between Evan and Cassie but with their powerful family disconnects who really can blame them. Evan and Cassie have chemistry and the sparks really fly between them, but mostly I love them because they do their best to protect each other even when the odds are against them.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series to hopefully get a few more answers as to why there is such bad-blood in the small town.
This book was provided to me in exchange for my honest review.
