A human with a purple aura. He can do this, just hours before his time is up he spots one of these humans and determined set off to save his soul.
But when he finally catches up with this human, Jack is facing more than just the act of stealing a soul troubling. Charlotte Simms is more than just another special soul, she is the reason he seeks a purple soul. She is one of the reason he faces an eternity in hell.
All he has to do is kiss her and his soul will be saved, but that one kiss changed everything.
I was swept away in this story without me even knowing it. I was lost to the world and return with a huge smile. The author grabs your attention from chapter one and forces you to go on a thrilling ride filled with betrayal, loss, love and hope. The trail Jackson faced will challenged everything inside you. Would you take that final step and save yourself? Or would you step back and face the consequences of what you have done?
At first I wasn’t really thrilled with Jackson’s character. His background yelled troubled and when he finally confesses why Charlotte was such a double take, you kind of want to kick his ass. But as the story progress we find another part of Jackson, a beautiful caring part. We find a lost soul that have unfortunately found his savor too late. Charlotte derailed him so fast he didn’t even see it coming.
Charlotte’s character was a little naïve at first, she immediately falls for Jackson all over again and drags him back to her flat. Way to naïve, and with what is at stake, just plain insane. But for ones in her life she wasn’t backing down and embraced what fate have placed in her hands. Charlotte’s character placed a huge smile on me at the end. They both did. Amazing characters that touches you’re heart and holds on to it.
Williams gives us a beautiful romantic story, and rounds it off perfectly. If you’re looking for something that will chill your bones and at the same time leave a smile on your face, this is it. Well written, with an exceptional plot I was taken away on an amazingly breathless ride. A well-deserved 5 stars from me.
