Lies drive the them apart. Can Alex and Claire break the curse and find their HEA?
This book is an emotional roller coaster. Claire was an strong heroine. I loved her family and hope to see more of her cousins in future books. Alex was a brother that felt guilty that his sister committed suicide. At some points, he is a total ass. At other points, he is broken and made my heart ache for him.
This book is in the top 5 of the best books I have read this year! I can't wait for the next one.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
