Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.
Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?
5 out of 5 stars
I really liked this book. The characters pulled me in from the first page. I absolutely loved the banter between Sophie and Spencer. I can really relate to Sophie’s sarcastic personality. The story kept me guessing and kept me wanting to turn the next page. Phoenix did a fantastic job with this novel.
This book was a total thrill ride. There were parts that were creepy and kept me glued to the edge of my seat. I felt so bad for Sophie and everything that she was going through. There is much more that I want to say, but I don’t want to give anything away. You will just have to read to find out!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good love story. Mix in a little suspense, humor and awesome characters, and you have a book that will keep you up all night. This is not the first of Phoenix’s novels that I have read, and I can guarantee you it will not be the last. She knows how to create one heck of a story!
