Description: Dangerous to be together. Painful to be apart.Savannah Colbert knows she broke up with Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart. Now, lost in a sea of hostile Clann faces, Sav tries to come to terms with what she's becoming and what that means for her future. And that someone is doing their best to bully her into making a terrible mistake.

Tristan can't believe Sav won't even talk to him. If being apart is her decision, fine. Just don't expect him to honor it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them both in directions neither could have foreseen or prepared for.

A reckoning is coming…and not everyone will survive.
My review -- 

 I would like to thank Netgalley for giving me this chance to review this book. I have been waiting for this for what feels like forever. I loved Crave, and the relationship between Savannah and Tristian. I longed to see what was next for them, and how they would overcome the cliffhanger which we were left with. 

 After the dramatic events that occurred toward the end of "Crave", Savannah and Tristian find themselves on their way back toward home, but Savannah is left with a heavy heart and a horrible choice she will have to make.

Tristian and Savannah are forced to go in separate directions. Not because they don't love one another, but from forces out of their control.
Things don't come easy for either one of them, and people still won't accept them together as a couple, no matter what they do or say, there doesn't seem to be a way of getting around it.

But Tristian won't give up. If there is a way for them to be together, he will find it. No matter what he has to do.

Savannah is still the strong girl we met in Crave, but now she has so much on her mind that it doesn't help her personal relationships.
Between her relationship with Tristian to her family, she can't seem to have a moment of peace. 
While Tristian hasn't had it easy as well. He goes through his own personal journey to become the person he is meant to be, and whether or not that will take him away from Savannah... that is the question.

Oh boy. What a cliffhanger we are left with, and it makes me want the 3rd book now. Melissa sure knows how to tease her readers, and make us want more by the ending line.

Just when you think things were fine and dandy... love and roses... think again. The story of Tristian and Savannah has only just begun, and its one that will make you cry and yearn for them both until they are happy, or we are happy. Whatever one comes first.

I applaud Melissa for able to write both POVs of the characters. I'm not sure if I would be able to do it. Writing from a male perspective has got to be hard enough as it is, but to keep their personalities and storylines in tact takes some strength.

Rating: 5 out of 5
