Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.
Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.
I was excited about this book going into it, but was left feeling a bit disappointed.
The highlight of the story was the romance. It was sweet and cute, and very warm and fuzzy. There was a bit of a triangle developing near the end, and I must admit that I am rooting for the “bad” guy. I found him to be much more intriguing and likable.
The actual plotline seemed a bit flat. I don’t appreciate when parents keep huge secrets from their children for no apparent reason, and this is the main reason the book fell flat for me. There was never a good explanation given for why the parents didn’t tell Sera and Luke anything about their abilities. If they had shared, I bet everyone’s lives would have been much better, without the need to sneak around and get into trouble.
I was impressed at the varied amount of paranormal creatures in the story, however I don’t think enough information was given about them. It almost seemed taken for granted that the reader was familiar with them, or something like that. I felt a bit out in left field about the behaviour of and reasoning behind a few of the characters.
Overall, this was a sweet romance that didn’t quite deliver on the story. I enjoyed the characters, but never really connected with them. In a twist from ususal, I was left appreciating the romance, but not the plotline.
