Karissa is a naive 18 year old college student, who has just met the big bad wolf. Only she doesn't know it yet.
Naz is a 36 year old mystery that wants Karissa for his own.
The first thing you will notice is the huge age difference between Karissa and Naz. And the author does not try to pretty it up for us by making Karissa seem older than she is, but instead uses that gap in age to weave a very intriguing story by playing upon Karissa's naivety.
Going into this book, I had really no clue what to expect. The more I read, the more I began to piece together where things were going. And while I was right about who Naz was, or should I say what, it still did not prepare me for the big reveal towards the end! Wow!!
The storyline is slow building. The author takes her time unraveling the plot to us. And though it definitely kept me turning the pages, there were a few times I did feel things were dragging a bit. Not enough to make me want to abandon the book or skim pages. And I also became aggravated at Karissa a LOT. But then I had to remind myself that she is only 18 and well, just acting her age.
This is book one of a two part series, so things are left unresolved at the end. Not really a cliffy but more of a what happens now kinda ending. And I can't wait to fins out when book two is released!
