This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Arial knows the rules that keep her safe. She's been following them since she was a little girl: Do not tell. Do not show. But in a moment of terror, facing an attacker intent on taking more than just her life, Ari has no choice but to unleash the psychic powers she's been hiding since childhood.
Now, with her abilities revealed, a bigger threat looms—something that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her parents and her secretive upbringing. But this isn't a fight she can face on her own.
As the head of Devereaux Security, Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. But when he takes on a new client—a beautiful young woman with an extraordinary gift—Beau isn't prepared for the extent of his attraction to her. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he'll do anything at all to protect Ari. No matter what it costs him personally. Even his heart and soul.
So much for "slow burn"
Not my favorite Maya Banks novel and not something I'd read again. The characters were a little over dramatized in their romance -- every moment was a high drama moment. Ari was a bit of a shallow character; weak, morally impeccable, and enormously emotional. I enjoy a good beefy save-the-day hero, but I like the heroine to have a bit of a backbone. And to her credit, Ari does toughen up a bit at the very end, but really, the character development wasn't very believable and the romance sort of just was a given.
Great book and a great read. I just loved there story and fell even more in love with Beau. I can't wait to read the next book out.
Arial Rochester's life has never been normal. She is Telekinetic. When trouble strikes and her parents are kidnapped, she does exactly what her father told her to do. She runs to Caleb and Beau Devereaux, at Devereaux Security. It was Beau who was at the office when she arrived and it was Beau who was beside her throughout this mysterious adventure. When the end arrives, and things are flying and exploding, who will still be standing?
Fantastic, fast paced thriller! Just when you relax and think things have calmed down, BAM! Ari starts out as this naive little school teacher. Then she has this amazing transformation and is not quite as helpless as she thought. Their love may happen quick, as it does in most romance novels, but it is born out of a need to protect this small, beautiful woman by a large, muscular, alpha man. The chemistry between them is hot! I love the little sing song tease that Ramie gave Beau in regards to Ari. I also really like it when past characters play big roles in current books in a series. I can't wait to read the next book in this fabulous series.
