About The Book:
Half-demon Jessie Garrett's battles seem endless. While Jeremy, the demon out to win her heart, teaches her how to fight, Jessie's relationship with her vampire lover, Drake, reaches a breaking point. Adding to her struggles, she must defend her life against a group of vampires who consider her a threat to their existence. Held captive on a remote island with both Drake and Jeremy protecting her, she is tested in ways she's never imagined. Jessie fights back; only her actions do more harm than good. The group offers her a choice, but no matter what she decides, her life will change forever.

The Review:
It's hard trying to lead a normal life and do the right thing when you've got centuries old vampires threatening to end your existence. It's even harder when the two men bound and determined to protect you don't get along – at all.
Jessie remains committed to the training agreement with Jeremy in preparation for the showdown with the VETOV. She's determined to not lose sight of the end goal, which is the fresh start with Drake they both desperately seek. However, between the trainings, paranormal investigations, working the day job, and fending off Jeremy's advances, Jessie quickly becomes exhausted and frustrated. What's left of her relationship with Drake is strained and tested at every turn. Unfortunately, things go from bad to worse as decisions are made that will force Jessie to give up the dream of ever having a normal life.
Ms. Abshire delivers another outstanding hit with this third installment to the Soul Catcher Series!
Jessie's still slightly impulsive, yet shows more maturity in considering the consequences to her decisions before making them. Throughout the story Jessie is consistently tempted, propositioned, and tested. It all leads to an exciting, thrilling, and fast-paced experience for the reader to enjoy. There are several new twists to the storyline that will have your emotions completely strung-out.
The love between Jessie and Drake is intense and undeniable, but the chemistry between Jessie and Jeremy is nevertheless growing stronger. There are positives and negatives to both men that Ms. Abshire fully exploits to keep the reader's from fully committing to either. I might be mostly “Team Drake”, but I won't deny the appeal of “Team Jeremy” either.
Every scene is full either fierce action or poignant moments all leading to a dramatic ending that will leave you hungry for more. There's absolutely no telling where the next in the series will take us and I'm already anxious to get my next Drake fix. This series is a must read for any paranormal romance fan!
