Guilty of reading it in 1 day. The first chapter got me. Realtiable character is all I can think of when Ruby is mentioned. A first serious crush. She drew me in. I was originally concerned that it was going to be another romance novel where every time you turned around it was about sex. She held out on him. It really surprised me and made me like her more. Now while Reed did seem a little stuck in himself in the beginning, he won my graces. Unfortunately I am now finished with the book of the month and I find myself slightly sad.

This was a quick read for me that I couldn't put down. When I started reading it, I thought it was going to be a boring book about a cave adventure. To my surprise it was a love story that has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I loved the book and can't wait to read the next one!

I started reading the book and I love it so far.

-- November 8th, 2015, 12:28 pm --

I finished the book in a couple of days and loved it! I lucked out this week and have read two awesome romance books. It isn't easy to find good romances books these days, and here I found no one but two of them no less!
I enjoyed this book more than I originally thought I would, and I was sucked in from the first page. It was a quick read, and enjoyable at that, and I loved any minute of it!

This book is the first in a series, and it definitely leaves you wanting to read the next one. It wraps up nicely, and it sets up perfectly for the next novel. The love story was sweet and I enjoyed the light paranormal touches. The characters were wonderfully well written, the plot was captivating, the setting was perfect, and I enjoyed the way the story turned out. However, the epilogue caught me by surprise, and I am not sure how I feel about it. The book was nothing like I expected it to be... It was so much better! I certainly recommend it!


4 stars!

I really ended up liking the book. As I read through it I would ask myself if I liked it or not. The last part of the book pulled it all together for me. I would recommend to others who enjoy love stories and a quick read. I really liked the weaving of the event that happened in the cave throughout the book. I didn't really like all the sex/making out scenes. The author was very descriptive and it made me blush on occasion.

If anyone has read my review of this book they already know how much I enjoyed reading it. The author created a lovable main character and a light hearted romance novel. I was impressed with how powerful the romance scenes were without being too graphic or repetitive. I also liked the subtle supernatural elements woven throughout.

4/4 stars.

my tablet ran out of battery right when it was getting to the good stuff.. so today morning, even before brushing my teeth, the first thing I did is power on my tablet and finish the rest of the book! I am truly impressed as to how the author managed to weave in aspects of the super natural very neatly into a romance novel and make it seem almost plausible (if you are open minded enough). Reminded me of the movie inception only a little clearer. Very well done. Can't wait to see if there will be more from D.F. Jones

Well, I finally sat down to start this book today and have read three chapters so far. I am going to avoid some of the other topics until I have read more.

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book at the beginning. I thought it would be a cave exploration/supernatural drama with young characters. I was hooked at the first and finished the book in a couple of days. It was entirely better than I expected. The characters were believable, with the brief supernatural elements woven throughout in a way that made sense. The ending threw me for a loop. I actually read the last chapter twice to make sure I understood what was happening! I can't wait to read the other books in this series. I rate this 4 out of 4 stars.
