Story Overview:
Two star-crossed souls discover that their fates are intertwined—for better or worse—in the second book in the Beyond series of paranormal romances that began with The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love.

Step into a world of angels and demons, where there are fates worse than death and love larger than life.

Ryan Love’s life is about to go up in flames—literally—when a mystical being named Sabelle appears, claiming to be from the Beyond, the realm of heaven, hell, and mysteries both awesome and terrifying. As Ryan’s family business and home are destroyed in a freak explosion, Sabelle saves him just in time. So why does Ryan feel like she’s the one who needs saving?

Sabelle is a Spinner, or agent of fate, whose sole purpose is to guide Ryan through his life choices. But the time is coming when she must part with him forever and entrust her job to someone else—someone who cares much less about him. And she can’t bear the thought, because each time Ryan touches her she falls more in love with him…

But maybe there is a way to stop the ticking time bomb. She’s heard rumors, and no one knows for certain if it works. It’s forbidden, of course, and dangerous—undoubtedly. Sabelle must leave the Beyond and bind herself to Ryan forever. But how will Ryan react when he learns what she’s done? And are their destinies forever connected, or can Ryan still pave the path of his future?

My Review:
Another book down in this series and I am more and more curious...where did the Love siblings really come from???

This book is about older brother, Ryan, who runs the family bar. He's closing up the bar on a late, rainy night when he finds a naked woman in the alley behind it. She tells him he has to get out now because the bar is about to blow up. 

That woman is Sabelle who has come from the Beyond. She is a seer who is held as a prisoner by the three fates to provide them visions of what is to come. Sabelle has done this job her entire life, but discovered Ryan early and became somewhat obsessed with him. 

Ryan doesn't like anything from the Beyond. As far as he's concerned they are all evil and distrustful and have caused him to lose 2 out of his 3 siblings. He also has his own abilities...he can read when other people lie, but regardless of that, he still doesn't trust Sabelle especially since he's so drawn to her, which is new for him to be that bewitched. 

This is an action-packed book. From the very first page, Ryan and Sabelle are running for their lives. And he's a guy with a conscience. Although he doesn't trust her, he can't abandon her either knowing that she probably wouldn't survive. I loved his character. He's very honest with how he wants her. And she's watched him from the Beyond for years. She knows how he is with women and his mental issues with commitment. His character definitely made the story for me. And the fact that she's been more than a little infatuated with him for years really worked in this one so that she has that connection so much earlier than you would think.

But despite how much I loved about both of them...there was one thing about Sabelle that drove me nuts...her ego and feeling of self-importance. I understood why it was needed for the story, but really should have been toned down at least a little. 

There is lots more revealed about the Beyond and we get to see Roxanne and Santo again, which I loved. But the sign of a good series...the more that's revealed, the more questions I have and the more I want to read. What exactly makes the Love children different and what is their tie to the Beyond. I also have a really strong feeling that Reece's side of the story isn't done. I'm ready for book #3.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
