She’s all about rules. He lives by none but his own. When these two meet, the results could be disastrous.

When Marisol Everly’s friend Rory sets her up with Fin Herald, Marisol doesn’t expect that it will amount to anything, but that was before she saw Fin’s searing blue eyes and mischievous smile. Not to mention, he seems absolutely fascinated by her mundane life. He’s everything that a girl could want, but there’s something else that ripples under the surface of his flirty behavior. Something darker. Something that fascinates Marisol, but scares her at the same time. Is she willing to risk falling into an abyss she might not get out of?

Intriguing first episode.

I have to say that I was a bit hesitant about this story, mainly because I found the blurb to be vague. But this is Chelsea Cameron and I’ve come to enjoy her books, so I took the plunge.

Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. I found that I was immediately drawn into the story. Fin and Marisol seemed like such opposite characters that I couldn’t help but be curious about what was to come for them both. Especially when Fin started acting strange. That certainly caught my eye.

My only complaint and I wouldn’t even call it that but I can’t find the right word at the moment (damn that Spanish-speaking brain of mine!), was that I couldn’t see the connection between them. Yes, they had chemistry abound, but I couldn’t feel any type of immediate connection. But since this is a serial and the story is bound to be expanded, I am hoping for it to be explored more as the story unfolds in the continuing episodes.

All in all, a great start to a serial with plenty of chemistry between the characters and an intriguing storyline that has me anticipating what is coming next.

*I received an ARC copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.
