Rob Kensington is just your typical high school senior. Athletic, intelligent, handsome. Sees a therapist once a week. Because his parents just died in a house fire of questionable origin. And he doesn’t seem to care.
Maybe he isn’t so typical.
Sara Marsh had no clue when she returned to live with her divorced father that the bedroom down the hall would be occupied by a stray with a major attitude problem. The last time she saw Rob, he was a brooding goth who could have passed as Marilyn Manson’s love child. But at some point during her three years away, Creepy Kensington managed to evolve into a sizzling hot star running back with smoldering hazel eyes.
The attraction is undeniable. The temptation is irresistible. And soon they’re sharing more than just an address. But with another life lost in a deliberately set blaze, Sara’s trust is faltering. Has she lost her heart to a serial arsonist? He’s already shown her the allure of playing with fire.
And someone’s about to get burned.
This is the third novel that I have read by Ms. Allie Gail and she hasn’t failed to keep my attention and curiosity piqued till the very end. Being one of her beta readers as well, I enjoyed the book from start till end. At the start, I felt that the book was inspired by Stephanie Meyer’s, Twilight, but as the story opened up, my observation wasn’t quite true. I loved the character build-up of Rob and how the author had differentiated between the past and present of Rob. The dark lurking behind him, the mystery and suspense was too good (and too much to handle for me).
I had my guess on Riley as the villain but Ms.Gail surprised me with the twist and I loved it. This is a book worth reading for it makes your heart beat increase, your mind working out conclusions and in the end, the author shocks you all. Allie has always impressed me with her “The Immortal Touch Series” and this YA novel was quite different but I can say one thing about her, she is one gifted and talented author.
Great work, Allie. Good luck!!
