Publisher: Entangled: Ignite
When Ava has a vision of a man's violent death, experience tells her she can't stop it from happening. For once, she's wrong. She saves him, but in doing so enters a world of manipulative demons and the men who hunt them.
Driven by the memory of his murdered family, Karson toils in the violent, thankless fight against demonkind. Masquerading as humans, demons are always a step ahead. But just when he thinks vengeance will be his, Ava shatters his plans and twists his focus.
Her powers have pushed her away from human contact, but this tattooed hunter with a battered heart draws Ava in. Working with the pretty little psychic is a challenge Karson can handle. But keeping his hands off of her is nearly impossible. With demons on their trail and Ava determined to make things right, keeping his heart safe will be just as tough as keeping Ava alive.
Karson is a man whose past has shaped his future – his family was murdered by demons and he has dedicated his life to seeking justice on the demon who killed them. Working as a Venator, a group whose sole purpose is to fight the demons, Karson’s latest target has possessed the body of Thomas Winston – the man whose touch showed Ava the vision of his death.
When Ava sets off a course of events that threatens her life, Karson finds himself doing everything he can to protect her – even when that protection puts her in further danger. As Ava and Karson work together to fight the demons who are threatening Ava’s life and plotting to destroy humanity, they must also deal with an undeniable attraction that exists between them – an attraction that could prove to be Karson’s undoing.
I really enjoyed this book and appreciated the characters and the rules that Tiffany Allee created for them to play by. It was fun to watch Ava grow as a character – she always had an inner strength, and it was fun to watch her take responsibilities for her actions, stand up to Karson, and ultimately begin to see her “curse” as a gift. Karson was great – totally alpha but broken by the events of his past. So convinced that he cannot allow Ava into his life because she can only be considered a weakness for him – and then realizing that he is weak without her…loved it!
This was a great PNR read, with lots of action and twists and turns that kept me turning the pages and finishing the book in one day. There was plenty of romance and heat between Ava and Karson and I loved the fact that it was used to enhance the suspense of the book and tell their story rather than just being a gratuitous sex scene.
I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
