A phone call that changed our lives... 

I've lived my life in a daze, trying to save someone hell bent on destruction. But when my phone rings and I'm told that Angel, my on again off again boyfriend has OD'd for the second time in two years, I'm so numb. So tired. So when Tor Boler, the sexy Norwegian and drummer of Fok asks me to stay with him, I stay. We were friends and I needed to be held. To be loved. It was just supposed to be one night of reckless passion. One night where I could forget how screwed up my life had become. 

...a night of passion with far reaching consequences 

I've wanted Jamie Sullivan since the day she walked through my tattoo shop eight years ago. There's a soulfulness to her blue eyes that reminds me of the arctic fjords of home. She calls to me. There's only one problem standing in our way- Angel Romero. I want her, and she wants me too, she just doesn't realize it yet. 

This time... we'll get it right.


The beginning of this book threw me off, I think since I wasn't familiar enough with the characters to understand what was fully going on. Once I figured out who was who, I was sucked into the story and couldn't put it down all evening. I read this book in one day, I just couldn't stop reading. 

I was really torn between Angel and Tor, I really wasn't sure who I wanted Jamie to get her HEA with. Jamie and Alex were high school sweethearts. They seemed to have made a perfect couple, but then tragedy struck and Alex wasn't the same. Jamie kept holding out, hoping the old Jamie would return. Now, he's in the hospital again, with his second OD. He and Jamie haven't been together for a year, but to her, they are still a couple. She loves him, knows he loves her, but it's getting harder and harder to keep hoping for a permanent change. 

Given everything Alex has put Jamie through, I totally understand why should would want to forget for the night. She was emotionally raw and needed to feel again. Tor is the one she turned to. Tor has been attracted to Jamie since they met eight years ago. He's willing to keep things at a one night stand, but he needs her in his life, even if it is just as friends. Tor could be the perfect boyfriend. He's attentive, caring, and so thoughtful. I just wanted to give him a big hug. 

So which would you choose? I had no idea. Part of me wanted Jamie to choose her first love. I wanted to see Alex overcome his drug addiction, become the man he was again, and live happily ever after with Jamie. But then again, I loved Tor and wanted to see him happy too. Both men could easily make Jamie happy. I was so torn. Until the end, I wasn't sure who she would be with. Can't spoil it by telling you who else is happy though, you'll have to read to find that out.



Marie Hall is a New York Times Bestselling author who has always held a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones. 

Then the day came she realized apart from the sexy bad boy she married, there'd be no vampires/shapeshifters/mermaids/fairies/or even stinky trolls in her future unless she wrote about them. More often than not she can be found roaming the wild, lush tropical forest she calls her backyard (a.k.a. Hawaii) and day dreaming constantly about her latest project.
