“I could just eat up the pages when Ash is totally sweet on Edie.” ~ Under the Covers

Edie and Asher go on a cruise for a vacay attempting time away from their work. Unfortunately, paranormals and trouble seem to always follow Edie wherever she goes. In this case, they go to a cruise ship which Ash’s old not-do-good acquaintance is on the boat with them. Evil plot is brewing, and Edie and Ash will be in the middle of chaos yet again.

I have had my eyes on Ash since the first book of this series. Obviously, he finally gets together with Edie. This book started several months after Shapeshifted had ended. Though Ms Alexander does a great job with recap, i can’t help but feel like I missed something. I’m kinda bummed I didn’t see their honeymoon stage. No worries, Ms. Alexander does give Ash and Edie some smexy time. I could just eat up the pages when Ash is totally sweet on Edie.

There were some decisions that Edie makes that I didn’t quite agree with. But as a Nurse, the compulsion of saving others is unavoidable and I guess I can understand. However, Edie and Ash takes decisions to a higher level that it always ends in some kind of turmoil, and it risks not only their relationship but also their lives. It’s a bit frustrating to witness but I have been and will always cheer for them.

Though Deadshifted is not my fave, I can still tell you that Ms. Alexander did a good job with this installment. I like that she is not afraid to add on creatures who are not in your typical Urban Fantasy or PNR novels. I also want to mention that the cover is by far the best of this series.

A heed of warning. There is a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting for more.

About Cassie Alexander

Edie Spence just wanted a vacation. A nice, relaxing, stress free, non-adventure away from the craziness that's dominated her life since becoming a nurse for paranormal creatures. But from the start, her trip on the Maraschino, a cruise ship bound for Hawaii, has been anything but stress free, especially when Edie's boyfriend Asher recognizes someone he used to know. Someone from his not-so-nice past. With their lives in the balance, will Edie and Asher be able to save their growing family or will this adventure be their end?

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
