From the Publisher: Can he make her fall in love with him… again?
When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.
But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.
When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.
Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.
If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way.
Initial thoughts: I’m so happy – the romantic in me is over the moon. Also, I feel like I may need a cold shower and cigarette…and I don’t even smoke. Pagan’s memories of Dank are gone and they have to meet again, but then the initial chemistry was off the charts again too. sex sex sex GAH.
The Story: Pagan and Miranda start college and Gee is next door to them. Very convenient but it was great and there was no parental supervision . Jay, Pagan’s ex is nearby and there are still some flames that either need to be rekindled or put out. Pagan must decide if she loves Jay because their souls are mates (even though she doesn’t know it) or give in to her total attraction to Dank (again). To do it fairly it has been decided that she can’t have memories of her relationship with Dank. It went along ok, but at one point I wanted to throw the kindle when I thought there might be a brief love triangle. All I have to say is THANK YOU Ms. Glines for not going down that road.
Twists and Turns: Nothing massive, but I did not expect Leif to do what he did. He totally made his move and I didnt’ see it coming.
The Friends: I was meh about Gee before this book, but this time around I truly loved her and her whoreish ways. LOL. For real! She just laid it all out there. I also liked Miranda more in this installment, and I got a good few giggles out of her.
The Romance/SEX: YAY. That is all. This installment was very heavy in the romance department which was SO OK WITH ME. This book was more about their love than Pagan seeing souls or retribution and it just tied it up so nicely for me.
Dankmar: I feel so much better now that I know the meaning behind his name. I loved it! I also still just loved him. He is the hero I dream about reading.
“I’m all about the naughty”
The Ending: Perfect. le sigh
Rec it? Yes, I loved, loved, loved this trilogy. It has the perfect combination of romance, UST, and a fabulous paranormal story. Happy reading!
