Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father s disappearance, her mother s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her. Raine is drawn to Torin s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run. Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.
Raine Cooper is in a confusing time of her life, in love with her lifelong best guy friend, Eirik, while at the same time her dad is missing. Then she gets a new next door neighbor, Torin St. James. He’s a bad guy who seems to be following her around, fixing her messes for her. At first she doesn’t know how to respond to him. She’s attracted to him, but annoyed with him, and also curious about how he fixes her problems with what he calls magic.
She struggles with her feelings between Torin and Eirik. She’s always adored Eirik and she loves him, but after meeting Torin, she notices that her feelings towards Eirik are more brotherly than not, but she doesn’t want to admit that to herself. Torin is clearly her soul mate and she’s in complete denial.
The mystery of the magic deepens as the story progresses and there are hints here and there about other people being in on whatever secret Torin has about what he is. I don’t want to go into any more detail and give anything away. But what I have to say is that the story is so good. It’s one of those that I didn’t want to put down and I kept thinking about it when I wasn’t reading it. Then there was the ending! I have got to get my hands on the next book! In the meantime, I’ll start her other series.

I read the response from the coach. The swim team had Ultimate Frisbee game in the park tomorrow afternoon and tryouts in a few weeks. I responded to his e-mail then headed to the garage.
Most of my kind, when not working, found a hobby to keep them preoccupied. Motorcycles were my thing. There was not a single engine I couldn*t dismantle and put together again, tweak or modify for maximum performance. My interest started when the first steam-powered motorcycles were built in 1800s. By then, I had gotten tired of using portals. I even bought one of the first commercially available motorcycles with an internal combustion engine.
My latest was a Harley. V-twin engine. Top of the line. I loved it. I was almost done modifying it to my specification, but I couldn*t work in this garage. I glanced around and shook my head. Didn*t the Sevilles ever throw away anything? There were way too much crap stored in the place, majority of them old electronics*TV, computers, gaming consoles.
Pushing my bike outside, I heard a car start and looked up. Raine was backing out of her driveway, but her eyes were on me. Her car shot backwards and slammed into something.
Please tell all bloggers to find out what happens next from Torins POV they need to go to the next set of blogs on the next day of tour.
