When Ava Flynn walks away from a scholarship to Georgetown and moves into her grandmother’s abandoned summer home in coastal Maine, she steps into the center of a centuries-old curse. On her first night, she notices a mysterious leather-clad stranger looking up at her third-story window. For weeks, everywhere she goes, Ava catches more glimpses of him, but she can never get close enough to find out who he is.
Over three hundred years ago, Lady Catherine Fairchild risked everything to protect her unborn child, sending a ripple through time that would change Ava’s future. As the mystery unravels, the horrifying consequences of Lady Catherine’s choices drag Ava deeper into a world she never knew existed, trapping her in a conflict that’s been raging since before she was born. A winner-take-all battle for her soul.
Have you ever read a book and thought “Damn this song would go so great with this story?” Well, we are going to do that for you. When we find a book that completely grips our musical tastes we are going to share those songs with you. Hope you enjoy, and find some great songs to add to your playlist.
I’m a strong believer that books should incite emotion-that’s their job, in my opinion, and is also the reason I don’t read non-fiction or historical fiction very often. This novel drowned me in my own emotions so hard. This is a one-sitting book, folks. Not even a pee break.
This book threw me for a couple of loops, I won’t lie, but I adored and basked in every second of it. It earned those 5 stars HARD.
This book has curses, a witch or two, but the best part about it (other than the cute heart-throb guys) is the TIME TRAVEL. And it’s not all cheesy like Back To The Future (which is amazing, but still). It’s not your run-of-the-mill paranormal romance.
I fell hard for both of the guys in this book. There’s a bad boy and a golden boy, but you fall for both of them; there’s no hope in picking one (yet-we’ll have to see in the sequel). Ava deals with a lot of pain, and intense crushes and lust that sucks you in.
This book was written beautifully and didn’t drag, had an AMAZING plot that’s got me thinking about soul mates, and created indescribable loves that leave you so mushy. Now I’ll wait patiently until the sequel comes out to heal my despair from the wonderfully shocking cliffhanger. Would highly recommend this book! Happy reading and let me know what you thought of it and what you think of the playlist below. 🙂
