Book Description
Secrets…
They weigh you down. I’ve kept a secret all my life. It’s my mother’s secret, too. I inherited it from her along with a unique ability that only we possess. She’s gone now, another victim of addiction. If her death isn’t enough to bring me to my knees, her betrayal flays me to the bone. Because the secret my mother and I have been keeping is just one of many she’d kept. She never told me I have an older brother. And now he’s here, eager to be my guardian.
There is no one else. So I move across the country to live with this stranger, my brother. But experience has taught me that most situations are temporary and forming attachments only leads to hurt in the end. That’s why I’m determined to keep to myself in this new place, struggling to seem aloof while I’m quietly breaking apart.
Then I meet Lucas…
His magnetism is hard to resist, and most girls at school aren’t resisting. I don’t fall so easily though, especially not for guys who use their good looks as a weapon. From the start, our interactions are tense and volatile. I know it’s because I’m denying the unwelcome desire that grips me when he’s near. I think he feels it, too. He looks at me with an intensity that threatens to unhinge my resolve. Soon he’s trying to break through the walls that past hurts have built.
But I’m not what I appear to be, and it wouldn’t be fair to get involved with him. At least that’s what I tell myself. Until a terrible act of violence reveals that Lucas has a secret, too. It’s a secret that links us together and ties us to an evil history I never could have imagined.

    

My Thoughts:

I got this book from the author free of cost in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the author and the publisher for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
Well here we meet Raielle who is an extraordinary teenager having the power of healing at the tips of her fingers but to her it is a curse. It’s a family inheritance and Raielle cannot run from it even if she wants too. After her mother’s death a stranger claims to be her brother and that makes Raielle mistrust her mother because of the secrets she kept. Now enter Lucas into this scene and Raielle is completely and instantly drawn to him and the same goes for Lucas as well. When the past comes back with an ugly face and threatens their present and future, how will they fight back? Would their love survive? What is the secret that Lucas has been keeping all this time? Has he betrayed Raielle’s emotions?
I really enjoyed this twisted plot which has so many surprises and shocks hidden at each and every nook and corner. I loved Lucas but I didn’t like Raielle very much. It felt to me that the characters were a bit sketchy and needed to be developed even more, hopefully we will get to enjoy a developed and flourished Lucas and Raielle in the sequel.
The suspense was heart-wrenching for me but it also made me finish it in one go. I didn’t felt bored at all during this read. The unique concept and its perfect presentation and execution really intrigued me and kept me interested till the very end where I faced a cliff-hanger and because it wasn’t that huge so I’m not at all unhappy with it. The action scenes were a treat to read and the fabulous writing style of the author made me a part of this unique story. I liked the world building as well and it was believable.
Over all a good read that will fascinate you and you’ll love this sexy and passionate romantic relation that the main characters share and the huge secrets that these characters kept from each other also included a good touch of mystery to the story. Enjoy guys.
