Trista Ann Michaels’s really knows how to turn on the heat. This story sizzles and satisfied me on all levels! The author builds the tension between the characters in a way that it is a joy to read. Vincent and Jason are a sexy duo which any woman would love. I was captivated by them and found them irresistible! The scenes between the three are sure to keep you hot and bothered. I especially loved the steamy dialogue. The author has the ability to write in a style which flows easily and is extremely creative. I found this a highly entertaining read and enjoyed Stacy’s journey into unexplored sensuality as well as the paranormal. I especially liked how the heroine skillfully handles these sudden changes in her life. The author has created a novel with characters that are passionate and well worth revisiting.
