Book Summary:

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

This series has sucked me in… I’m sleep deprived but can’t seem to get enough.

How to write a review for Book #4 in the series without spoilers? Not really possible!

If you’ve read this series and made it through book 3 then you’ll likely love this addition to the series. For some reason I’m just pulled into these books. They are NOT clean reads. The first book wasn’t too bad but the heat just keeps increasing with each book. In this one Sabine oozes sex, she’s sex personified and there is nothing subtle about her actions.

Despite the content which I wish was toned down a little, I haven’t felt such emotion while reading a series in years. My emotions were in turmoil while reading this book. Sabine is so awful. I abhor her and yet somehow came to love her too – is such a thing possible? Nash – to love him or hate him? I keep flip-flopping back and forth and it’s making me crazy. Add in an evil Netherworld element and it’s one wild ride of a story.

Rating: 5 Stars – I Loved It

Content: Once again this book was another step up from the last one. More language, more sex talk, more innuendo.
