Jaxina Pherson or “Jax” is running for her life. She comes from a long line of witches who use their powers to kill. Jax does not want to be part of this family legacy and breaks free. She is drawn to a small community amongst the mountains of North Carolina. She has some money, a car and an RV to her name and must locate a subsitute for her mother to enroll her in high school. You heard right, Jax wants a normal teenage life and will hold on to it with both hands.
Upon arrival to this small town she is almost run over by a truck while walking by the woods near her RV campground. She is able to avoid the Truck due to her super speed but ends up in bigger trouble. The driver is not only a teenage boy but a hunter due to the bloodstone he pulls out of his pocket.
Jax did not let that little incident deture her from her dream of a normal life. She finds a woman to use mind control with and impersonate her mother to enroll her. Keller Dawes her mystery car man and hunky hunter ends up in the school office and sparks start to fly. She seems to be drawn to him against her better judgment.
Now that she has found someone who makes her temperature rise is all the right ways can she really stay with the danger he brings? Will she stay and fight for a normal life and possibly love or will she flee for safety?
Can we change what Fate has handed us?
*Jax Pherson drop-dead gorgeous blonde.
“I wanted to kiss you the moment I saw you.”
“Me, Too,” I whisper, only sharing part of what I feel.
“Who would have thought when I fled my family’s compound in Miami that my biggest obstacles would be disguising myself and getting enrolled in school? Fleeing a coven of deadly witches, buying a used car and purchasing an RV? Mo problem. Going brunette and getting your average high school education? Monumental tasks.”
“Fate needs a good, solid bitch slap.”
“And would you happen to have classes in living without magic and how to relate to boys who aren’t witches?”
“Toni, being a Buffy fan, would appreciate the irony if she knew the situation. All that tortured, star-crossed longing between natural-born enemies.”
Overall this is an excellent book for young adults and adults alike.
Thank you netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book to review.
