Well this book was amazing, and I am in love with Theo. Casey wakes up underground with no recollection of how or why, when she finally gets out and goes back to her life she realises she's been gone 2 days and now the guy she's been crushing on for a year knows something's different about her. Theo senses Casey has changed and initially thinks she's fooled him but once they talk he realises that she's telling him the truth and has no clue how she has her ability or who she really is. Enemies by birth rite but the attraction is obvious, and it's so much more than that. Will their people allow their love to continue or destroy them?
Theo is my new book boyfriend, I loved him, his passion, possession, personality, the way he takes control and most of all the way he looks after Casey. She's very innocent, and has no idea how to deal with a new life that's thrown her way. The story, plot, writing, characters are great. I was help captive by the twists and turns. Lots of angst, romance, and love. The intimate scenes are great, well described but very thoughtful in nature. You feel an instant dislike to certain characters, and love others. Overall an amazing read that I can't wait to continue, I would recommend to paranormal lovers, as well as romantics.

This is a quick, but quite enjoyable read. It unfortunately ends on a cliffhanger, and I've decided that I'm going to let it go there (rather than buying the next) for one main reason:
The story started off quite engaging - one of those where you nearly miss your stop on the train because you're so focused on your book. But as the story progressed, the heroine started really getting on my nerves. She's childish and whiny. She wastes so much time agonising over her relationship with the male lead (does he really like her, or does he just want sex? does she trust him enough to date him? should she shag him? what will he think of her body when she finally gets naked?). On and on and on. After a while, I not only was incredibly annoyed at her, I had started to think that the male lead was far too good for someone as annoying as her. Why would he want someone that narcissistic and immature?
By the end of the book, I was ready to say goodbye to that character.
