Synopsis from Goodreads:

Camilla Melini is a high-ranking soldier with an organization fighting to free elemental magic users. Her latest assignment is to find one of the legendary elemental Four Talents, and she’s determined to get in and out of Mexico as quickly as possible to avoid running into the man who nearly destroyed her life. But when the dangerous man from her past finds her, Cam must work with Marco Alvarez, a man she’d dismissed as a playboy, to prevent the the powerful magic of the Talents from falling into the wrong hands. She never expected the charming playboy to be a cunning warrior worthy of her heart...

Marco Alvarez is sent to Mexico with two goals—to watch Cam’s back and to investigate a series of arson fires targeting former AMT prison employees. But when a shadow-shifter shows up looking for Cam, Marco decides he needs to stick close to her to help her mission succeed. As he gets to know the strong-willed woman, he’s torn between telling her the truth of his elemental magic and keeping the others who share his secret safe. But when Cam sacrifices herself to save her colleagues, Marco must expose the secret of his elemental magic or risk losing the only woman who can match both his passion and his strength.

My Review:

Donovan’s done it again with this one! She had me captivated from the first page and didn’t let me go.

Donovan tells an extremely unique and captivating tale in this instalment of her series. She had me completely enthralled throughout. Her one of a kind storytelling and fluid writing allow the reader to easily immerse themselves in the story. I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout, dying to know what would happen next. Her unique take on the paranormal combined with a top notch storyline made this novel impossible to put down. Her in-depth and visual descriptions brought the world to life, creating a well-rounded experience for the reader.

I absolutely loved getting to know the main character in this novel on a more personal basis in this novel. It was quite intriguing to see her as more than just a soldier. Her male counterpart was intriguing as well. I loved the Alpha male who was willing to accept and nurture the strength and alpha-ness in his female counterpart. Getting to know more about the main character in the secondary storyline was brilliant as well. She is a one of a kind character that I can only hope we get to see more of in the future. The supporting cast was brilliant as well. Each of these individuals could stand as a main character in their own story, but didn’t overshadow anything or anyone in this tale.

Donovan’s clear, concise writing combined with her vividly visual descriptions and fantastic storytelling combine to create a tale that you won’t soon forget. I was left with only one question at the end of the book. When can I have the next one?
