~ What's It About? ~

One choice away from eternity…

For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…

Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…

As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity.

Wow, I really enjoyed the 2nd story just as much as the first!!! I felt myself not able to stop reading this one at all I was even walking around my house and reading at the same time..which in my case is very dangerous lol I tend to run into walls and what not. lol.  I felt this story was really easy to follow along with, the characters didn't change in fact I got to meet more and a hole lot more of twist and turns in this one. Due to all the new things that happened I'm hoping that their will be a 3rd book just I fell like all the characters stories are not done yet they all seem to blend together in fact.

I felt for all the craziness that the characters had went through on all their personal journeys to find themselves, love, friendship, and to believe in the unbelievable. I think that author did an outstanding job on this story making everything come to life was just down right amazing. For as long as the story was I shocked myself with how fast I was able to read it, heck it kept my interest the hole story I couldn't stop turning the pages. I really liked the ending a lot with this story it opened a hole bunch of thoughts and new things that sound hopefully *fingers crossed* coming up in more books???

This is a must read story that I'm sure everyone can love, have to say must read the first one before this to understand what is going on. So what are you waiting for? get yourself a copy and start reading it!!!

~ What's It About? ~ 

A new adult novel from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

He’s waited more than 900 years to love her…

Being the Gatekeeper to Hades is no small feat, and waiting almost a millennia to meet your mate is damn near impossible. But Theo Bradford’s mark has finally surfaced on his intended. Now all he has to do is find her and convince her to embrace her supernatural heritage.

Young genius, Sadie Nowland, has got life figured out. Graduating college at the age of eighteen and accepting a six-figure job is just what she needs to prove she’s made something of herself. But when a strange tattoo mysteriously appears on her shoulder and Theo starts talking about Mates, it catapults her neatly laid out life into chaos.

Somehow a vicious demon banished to Hades defies Theo’s vanquish and returns, setting his target on Sadie, and she is thrust into the volatile world of Shomrei warriors and a connection to Theo her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. That primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could have ever imagined—and just may be the key to the world’s survival. 

~ My Thoughts ~

This was an amazingly well written story for paranormal mixed in with mythology that kept me turning the pages. I had found it really hard to stop and put it down. The hole story plot kept me very interested on where it was heading. I really liked how it had a mixed based on Mythology *one of my favorite things*, paranormal, along with Angels and Demons all that mixed together blew my mind and I loved it.

The story is a 2person POV and each character brings something to the table in the most shocking was. This story to me was more or less about one self embracing what they really were meant for and finding one's true self along with their true love while being in danger. I really enjoyed what I read and I can't wait to read more from this author in fact more from this series. It had a lot of my most favorite things all in one. So if your a lover of Mythology & Paranormal just like me mixed of course with Romance then this is a story for you.
