Summary/ product description: “Wren can do things that other people can only dream of. Make it snow on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring a paper bird to life.
Wren knows her abilities are tinged with danger--knows how easy it is to lose control--but she can't resist the intoxicating rush. And now that she has Gabriel by her side, someone who knows what she can do--what she "has" done--she finally feels free to be herself.
But as Wren explores the possibilities of her simmering powers, Gabriel starts pushing her away. Telling her to be careful. Telling her to "stop." The more he cautions her, the more determined Wren becomes to prove that she can handle things on her own. And by the time she realizes that Gabriel may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.”

My Rating: êêêê

My Review: This sequel was so much better than the first book. Cold Kiss was kind of depressing. The author’s writing style was good, but the story itself just was sad and uninteresting. This sequel had more romance and magic, the kind of stuff I like in paranormal romances. Another huge difference is that there was more humor in this book than the first. So many funny quips and dialogue quotes. It made me more interested in reading it. I hate when a book bores me and this one didn’t. Wren and Gabriel were further developed and I also like Robin. It’s interesting to have sibling relationships in book. And with Robin coming into her powers, things get crazy. The new characters seem a bit ridiculous and remind me of characters from Wicked Lovely for some reason. They just act like faeries, using magic for mischief. This book didn’t have a love triangle, which I different. I’m so glad that Zombie Danny was over in the first book. Did anyone else notice how often the author described things in food terms? This book made me oddly hungry. Sugary, melty…. Food Poetry!!! Lol…never mind. I recommend this as a wintery/holiday read. Perfect for December or January.

Cover Art Review: I like the photo, but I’m disappointed about the lack of rainbow effects. I hate the drop shadow on the title. And it’s pink like bubble gum or cotton candy.
