Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I really enjoyed this storyline. Yes, it’s one of those love at first sight books, but with everything that is thrown at them it isn’t overly sentimental. There isn’t time for there to be.

Crimson may be a Guardian sent to protect a mere Human, but she’s helpless when it comes to Finn. Appalled at herself for her immediate feelings toward him she, with the help of a close friend, decides she can protect him and follow through with her desires.

Finn isn’t the mere Human mechanic everyone thinks him to be. He has secrets. And for the first time in his life he wants to share them with someone. He falls hard for Crimson and even knowing what she is couldn’t keep his feelings at bay.

This book follows several characters, switching to add extra information to the story as Crimson and Finn learn their true identities and how the prophecy pertains to them. With Crimson’s family and Finn’s legacy they two find the help they need to defeat the woman who wants to take everything from them.

The beginning may be a little slow, but the rest of the book makes up for it. After the fated two meet it really doesn’t slow down.

The only downside to this is the editing. There were many places I had to reread a sentence a few times in order to try and figure out what it was supposed to say, as some had missing words, others had an extra word or two, and some mixed up the he/she and him/her. A few are always understandable, but these took away from the book, making it harder to fall in love with; which is sad, because the storyline is really good.

My Favorite Moment:  When Kate pays an unexpected visit to Finn’s apartment.

“Oh and Crimson, your sweater’s on inside out.”

Overall, I give this 3 stars!
