A power as old as King Solomon awakens when a seventeen-year-old girl marks the brooding hot abductor ordered to seize her. Addie Heaton’s not your average high school student. Orphaned at two, she’s spent most of her life reading the emotions of others. It’s a little trick she likes to call color-vision. But lately, a stranger has been trailing her, putting off shades of black and red—colors Addie hasn’t seen since the night her parents were killed—colors Addie never wanted to see again. But when Addie comes face to face with Conal Reed, owner of the terrifying shades, she learns her stranger’s a little different too. He’s brooding hot, mysterious, and all too elusive. Conal loves to materialize, and then vanish at all the wrong times. Nice. Not. After years of keeping her ability a secret, Addie’s found another person with gifts, someone who may know what she really is. But Conal’s not talking. He’s having more fun showing up uninvited, teasing her senses, and disappearing at all the wrong times. Instead of finding answers, Addie finds herself reconsidering ever being alone and naked again.
I decided to request this book based on the title alone, wrongly assuming that it was a crime thriller. Despite it not being quite what I'd imagined, when I started reading Addie's story I quickly got sucked in and pulled along for the ride.
The age old story of good versus evil, seventeen year old Addie deliberating between two hot guys plus supernatural and paranormal vibes...what's not to like?!
I found some of the scenes between Addie and either one of her potential boyfriends a tad predictable but who cares? It didn't matter one bit, as the rest of the book more than made up for it with surprises and secrets spilled all over the place; there are more twists and turns than your average rollercoaster!
This is just the kind of fantasy-paranormal-supernatural read I truly enjoy. I can't wait for the next book the series!
