My Thoughts:Joanne Kenrick a breakout author with this book, and had me hooked from the beginning. Pearl had me laughing throughout most the book. I could so see myself hanging out with her. The slow build up of passion between Pearl and Adam had me wanting to scream one minute then grinning from ear to ear the next. The feelings they possess for each other is so pronounced throughout the book you can just feel it. I would say this book was enthralling with some choice villains, a secret family legacy, and true love being reborn.It had some toe curling moments that had me turning the pages begging for more . If this book wasn't on your list before, i would put it on your list now. You get intrigue, suspense, and romance all wrapped into one book. I personally can't wait to see what is next, and will be on the look out to see more of Pearl and Adam, along with the other characters i have grown fond of in the future
