4 stars

Sarah runs the family business as a store manager of a sports equipment store while waiting to start college. She has found she has these abilities, feeling other peoples´ emotions and somehow she succeeds in fighting off a being not quite like man. While struggling to understand herself she finds herself trying to understand this new man in town as well. And his mysterious brother..

Quite a quick read! Something I did not expect was the steamy stuff going on, so a little warning is in place: the book does have adult content, sexual that is. The story got me quite excited, the paranormal plot felt like a mix of paranormal and mythological (not really sure if mythology is the correct word to describe what I mean). A different and new kind of background to a story than any I´ve read before!

This one is yet another series that I need to read more about! And the name, that is just such a good name! A lot of the paranormal going on was really interesting, but most of all I really liked the romance (and the steaminess). I think it was quite close to a five star read, maybe if the paranormal plot woul´ve been put together into a whole a little more clearly it would´ve been exactly that, a five star read. Little things made me just a little lost, but maybe too much revealed would´ve spoiled it and I need to read the second to get the biggerer picture :)
