~Synopsis~

The past is never far behind.

Senia Loato’s life has been needled by disappointment, and the wounds that fester go beyond skin deep. She is certain if she puts miles between her and her tainted past, she will somehow outrun it. When she’s offered the chance to leave her island home of Mintang to become an au pair for three boys in Germany, she takes the opportunity to start  running.

In Germany, she meets Miina, another au pair. What builds between them is a life-defining friendship, one they will risk everything for.

And soon, they’ll be asked nothing less
.

When Miina is betrayed and left stranded, Senia stands by her, risking much more than just her stay in Germany. She also stands to lose rich, handsome, turquoise-eyed Roman Dorenwald, the first man she has allowed into her heart.

But they’re risks worth taking.

Eventually, Senia makes a sacrifice that catapults her back to her past, where she’s forced to draw back the curtain and discover the shocking truth of her history.

Can she confront her nightmares, reach deep into her soul, and forgive those who have hurt her? Or is it easier to just keep running?

~EXCERPT~

My muscles tensed up again, and I smoothed the tablecloth, gave myself time to respond. How much could I tell him? If he had read my CV, he’d know I’d worked at the orphanage, but not that I’d also lived there. Did I want him to know? I raised my eyes. Why not? “I grew up in an orphanage, where I later worked as well, for two years. I never met my biological parents.” Why not just leave out the whole adoption part? It would only call for more questions and complicate things.

To my surprise, Roman squeezed my hand, just for a second, but the warmth from his grip remained with me. “I’m sorry to hear that. That explains it. I used to wonder why you had this sad look in your eyes all the time.”

I glanced away. “I do?” I whispered. But then, how would I know? Whatever look I had in my eyes, I’d lived with all my life. I wouldn’t know if it was sad or not.

“Senia,” Roman drew his chair closer to the table, “please look at me. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. I can’t even begin to imagine how it would be, growing up without my parents, even if they can be too controlling sometimes.”

I allowed my glance to meet his again. “Well, having never met mine has made it easier to live without them.”

The waiter placed our food in front of us, halting our conversation. The aroma of Roman’s roasted pork in gravy and that of my beef and pork mingled in the air between us before teasing my nostrils. So easy for the aromas to do—nothing in the air to stop them from embracing. Unlike Roman and I. Between us stood many possible complications that could send a potential relationship toppling before it even started.

Dark Flame (The Immortals #4) by Alyson Noël


Dark Flame (The Immortals, #4)
Dark Flame (The Immortals #4)
by Alyson Noël
Rating: 4/5
 
Description:
In Alyson Noel’s most darkly seductive Immortals novel yet, Ever fights for control of her body, her soul—and the timeless true love she’s been chasing for centuries.
Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal.  But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside.  As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions
At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch.  As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.
Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …
 
Review: 
Who knew recycled lives and undying love could be so fascinating?! Still in search of a cure to allow Damen and Ever to touch again Ever now also has to find a job or be forced into an internship at her guardian’s (and aunt) firm. Desperatly seeking not to spend her summer with lawyers and instead romancing with her boyfriend Ever turns to a local mysticism store and gets hired by the incredibly relaxed yet deeply passionate Jude. Down the street the insanely evil/sexy as all get out Roman has set up shop and Evers determination to get to the bottom of the antidote has gotten severly out of whack. She’s turned to witchcraft, using an ancient tome she found in one of Judes personal drawers, and has attempted a binding spell to Roman that will make him to do her bidding. All she wants is the antidote but the magicks gone wrong. She finds a darkness inside of her that is calling out to Roman, he’s all she can think about all she wants with every inch of her. Damen can’t even hold a candle to the lust rush she feels for Roman and strangely Jude is able to keep her mind somewhat off of this, not enough to stop her from losing her mind, but a comforting presence to say the least. But why? And why does he make her stomach flip and her heart race? Damen’s her true love…right? **Please note that there is SOOOOOOOO much more than these little, poorly written reviews I provide. These books are PACKED with characters, heartache, love and lust as well as self conflict. I haven’t been taken by such storm by a book in years so please, don’t just take my word for it, GO BUY IT! 🙂
