Blurb: Ridley Heller thought that all her problems would be over if she could have Bo back—back from the dead. But what Ridley didn’t know was that her wish would come at a price.
Bo survived a condition that would have killed a lesser vampire, or any vampire for that matter. The only reason he didn’t die is because of who he is, someone Ridley doesn’t know at all. Someone Bo himself doesn’t know at all.
As Ridley gets closer to finding out Bo’s true identity, she discovers that loving him could also come at a price, a price much higher than she ever could have imagined. The question is: is there any such thing as a price too high to pay for Bo? For his love, for his safety, for eternity in his arms?
Warning: This book will leave you breathless……..
My Cover Thoughts: I love the cover! It is of a guy kissing a girl and you can see the passion on his face as he holds her tight to him. No one can come between them…. Ever….
My Thoughts/Review: OMG I absolutely love vampire stories but this one has a twist to it that leaves you speechless! I started reading this book as a recommendation from an author friend Shelly Crane and I was not disappointed.
Ridley is a senior in high school who justs wants to get a scholarship to Stanford and leave her town and misery behind. As the beginning of her senior year rolls around she is dating the high school quarterback and she is cheer captain. What more could a girl ask for you would say but deep down inside she does not love Drew and she is forced to make a decision that she does not want to make. What fuels her is a new boy at school who she feels a connection with. Every time he looks at her she feels like she could die inside without him.
As she starts to get to know him she needs him more and more and can not stay away from him. The only thing is, is that he is keeping a secret and does not want her to find out. If she finds out he fears she may never want to be with him. What is he to do? He loves her and needs her like air is to lungs. As the story unfolds you will laugh, you will cry and most of all you love Bo and root for him and Ridley!
Will evil keep them apart or will love conquer all???????????
Memorable Quotes: The murmur of death, a dark shadow overcast, Ringing long and eternal as life slips slowly past, It breeds the unthinkable and touts the unknown, It begins at the end, on a whisper, a moan.
Advice: If you love Vampire stories and love a good swoon worthy story this is the book for you! You will not be able to put this book down. Once you start it you will crave the second book and the third, which is coming out on September 05, 2011
