Synopsis: Abandoned by her birth parents and ignored by her adoptive family, Maddy Page believes she is unlovable. She only allows herself to dream of falling in love. That changes when she meets MJ; handsome and kind, MJ penetrates Maddy’s defenses. Maddy soon finds herself confiding in MJ like she has with no one else, revealing secrets even her closest friends don’t know. He makes her feel safe—a feeling she’s never experienced except in her dreams.

When Maddy witnesses MJ disappear and reappear in thin air, she realizes she might have been wrong about him. He could be dangerous—maybe even a killer. Determined to uncover the truth of who—or what—MJ is, Maddy ignores her instinct to run. But she soon realizes that getting close to MJ could cost more than a broken heart—it could cost Maddy her soul.

My Review: This book was recommended to me by author Aurora Whittet and I am so glad that I agreed to do a review.

For a debut novel, this is a surprisingly well thought-out and delivered story. The characters are easy to identify with and so easy to get attached to. The writing flows easily and is well constructed.

I was somewhat confused in the beginning when trying to decide if it was a dream or reality, but as the book progressed I quickly understood what was happening. There are many twists and turns throughout, and just when you think things are going to go the way you want them to, surprise! another twist.

I liked this book so much that it was hard to put down. It had me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. I was truly sad when it ended and can’t wait to read the next installment.

I would give this book a 4.5 if I could.
