Cover: loved it

Would like to thank Nikki Rae for gifting me this book for a honest review

I am a big fan of Nikki Rae's Sunshine series, this book is more of a prequel; you do not need to read the Sunshine Series to read this one, but it a great series to read.

This book Wow!! I was afraid to read this and read what Ava had to goes through. Such a dark twisted story, very well written, and emotional.

 Ava has always known about vampires and was taught how to detect them and block them mentally.Her parents died in a fire when she was younger, and she still struggles to cope, struggles with severe anxiety. Not feeling safe staying in one place too long, she has been on the move with her only family Toni. Now they decide to try to settle in a new city, Ava even starts working in a pet store. But Michael has found her and is making sure she doesn't get away. Forcing Evan to help him, and go to the pet store where Ava works and meet her. Ava doesn't suspect that Evan and Michael are vampires.

After Ava is finally captured she has to endure this twisted torture by the hands of Michael, he has this twisted nature and things have to be done a certain way. He punishes Ava and rewards her. Ava is such a strong character and she wants to survive this and is able to gain Michael's trust some what, and those bath scenes wow.  Evan tries so hard to help Ava and you see him so helpless. He himself is another captive and being starved. You get to see this twisted fantasy family Michael wants them to be. This twisted love he has for Evan and Ava and how really crazy he is.

"Michael loved Evan, more and wanted him more. He only wanted Evan to see, he hoped that once all three of them-Evan, Michael and pet were a family, he would see how right everything was. They would be unstoppable and none of them would have to be alone ever again. She was the key and would hold them together."

I loved that we get point of views from Ava, Evan, Michael and Miles. Oh Miles such a great vampire, trying to save Evan and Ava and you see that his interference causes Michael to want revenge. You get Evan's story and what he did to help his sister, we also get Michael's origin; how he became a Vampire and some of the reasons he is the way he is. The ending was great, sad and bittersweet. Thank you!!!!
