Since she was eight years old, Lilly Rayne Nightingale felt like Fate was trying to wipe away her existence through a series of odd, near fatal incidences. Luckily, her best friend Will was always one step ahead of Fate preventing her from being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Will was her knight in shining armor until he broke her heart after their one and only kiss. On Lilly's first day of college, she meets Brand Cole. Intrigued by Brand, Lilly must decide whether or not she can give up her adolescent fantasy of being reunited with Will and allow Brand the opportunity to conqueror her heart. Not only do Will and Brand both love Lilly, they share a dark secret neither wants Lilly to discover. Lilly thinks Fate is after her once again when a new series of attempts on her life start to take place, but she soon learns someone of flesh and blood is trying to kill her this time.

Who doesn’t like some good, steamy, hot romance? I mean…. WHO DOESN’T?



Yeah, that’s right. Everyone loves it. At least I hope. But there’s some things about romance that annoy the heck out of us romance lovers. I’ve outlined a few of those annoying THANGS below that you are sure to find in this






2. So, we have the two main characters, Bran and Lily. They got together super fast but I’m happy to say they weren’t like… kiss me, kiss me, kiss meeeee, so soon. So technically, I guess it wasn’t insta-love, exactly? But it still made me roll my eyes.


3. A Mammoth’s butt-size of weird crap is happening to her and the people she loves, like FREAKY CRAP, but not once did Lily EVER freak out about it. I mean, if half the crap that happened to her, happened to me, I would have gotten a counselor. Just sayn’.



4. The raging similarities to Twilight. There’s this annoying love triangle. I don’t appreciate my feelings being played with. It’s like one moment I’m rooting for one ship and then the next second, forced to root

for another…. I just couldn’t take it. It reminded me of the dreaded love triangle between Edward, Bella, and Jacob. *glares at Twilight* (I don’t care who hates me. I’ll always be team Jacob. FO LIFE.)

Annndddd of course, one of them is immortal one is mortal.


5. THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH KISSING. I’m not really picky with my romances when it comes to kissing, but I need SOMETHING to tide me over. In Cursed, I think they kissed like ONE TIME.




Now it's your turn 2

How do you guys feel about books where the main characters are head over heels with each other in love even though they don’t really know each other very well?? PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one that is feeling a bit perturbed by this. I CAN’T BE THE ONLY ONE…

  1. This one sounds… interesting. 😀 I definitely need a more developed connection in my romances – that’s really what makes me swoony, conversation and banter! Funny that the triangle is so Twilight-ish too, good old Twilight, the gift that keeps on giving. 😛

    No, not really. I need to see a reason why they love each other otherwise it’s just lust to me. And, I’m not fond of getting jerked back and forth by a love triangle, either.

  3. Okay, I do enjoy me a good paranormal romance (I mean, hello, Lux series!) but I think I’ll be avoiding this one. All the weird crap but Lily just soldiers on? Yeah, I don’t think so. Lack of kissing? Big FAIL! And the Twilight-sh love triangle? Noooo! Although I have to say, Team Jacob? Seriously? Oh Kei, I am forced to rethink our entire friendship. LOL 😉

  4. I like slow build when it comes to relationships in any book. I like when they slowly start to fall for each other after getting to know each other. I mean, I do believe in instantly liking someone, but insta-LOVE is a bit hard to warm up to, especially in books. I’m with you on that. I am curious about this story after your review though. I want to know what the crazy things are that she doesn’t freak out over lol. Thanks for your honesty.

  5. I definitely prefer romance to build slowly, although sometimes an author can make me feel their romance even if things happen a bit fast. It still needs to be believable though. Too bad this one didn’t fully work for you!

  6. Oh, I know where you’re coming from! I need romance and KISSING in my reads! You want great chemistry to keep you hooked! A shame you didn’t love this one…
