Release date: January 23, 2013

Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.


Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

My Thoughts:
The first book in this series was great and I was happy to be able to read the second!  Allie is on her way to start her first year at college but that is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much going on in this book for Allie, Levi and everyone else!

Now I am all for strong women and not giving into a man right away, but there were times where I was frustrated wtih Allie. I know she and Levi didn't necessarily get off to the best start, but the man is trying to hard to prove to Allie that he does care about her and after a while I thought that he had proved himself enough, but Allie just kept refusing him. I was glad the whole book wasn't that way or I would have gone insane. I love Levi. He is great for Allie with her tendency to not always think everything through before she acts. 

The chemistry between the two characters was perfect. I can't think of one way I would change it in that regard There were times where they really made me laugh. 

I'm on the edge of my seat for the next book! Levi may not have learned his lesson and Allie may not have fully forgiven him which could lead to so very very bad things!!! I can't wait to see what happens in the third book!

My Rating: 4 Stars!
