Art appraiser Addison Montgomery just wants a normal life. One where she can ignore the vicious ghosts who follow her. One where she’s free from her “gift” of touching an object and seeing the owner’s deepest secrets. And one where she can fall in love without having all of the above get in the way.
But when tall, dark, and dangerous gallery owner Blake Greenwood enters her life, normal is the last thing she’s feeling. The man has more secrets than the priceless art he sells, giving Addison’s quest for normal no chance. That, and he may just hold the key to uncovering the truth behind her father’s unexplained disappearance.
Despite her paranormal gifts warning her to stay away, she feels an inexplicable, captivating fascination for him, something that goes deeper than attraction. There’s something between them that’s older than time, and if she can learn to give him her trust, it may just save her life.
The setting for this story really put me in mind of a high society crime thriller, but with the added mix of paranormal elements. Non stop action and tons of twists and turns kept me on my toes until the very last page. The fast paced storyline made it hard to put down.
I really liked the bit of history that was out I to the story it was interesting and helped to add to this books mystique.
Addie has the gift of sight, but she wouldn't necessarily call it a gift. She was a strong character with a lot of depth. I liked her spirit and her ability to see the good in people even when they couldn't see it themselves.
Blake was a great match for Addie as he was confident, smart, an didn't let her get away with hiding her true self. He was mysterious and alluring, everything a hero should be.
The mystery was intriguing and had me guessing for much of the book. I can't wait for the next one to find out more.
This is a top notch crime thriller with an unforgettable romance!
