Ava has spent her life running from the monsters that lurk in the shadows, always the prey. She finally thinks she can settle down, have a normal life, and work on not being so scared of the world around her. That is until she runs into her worst fear.

He has finally found the potential family he has always wanted. All he has to do is make his little bird sing. Will Ava escape with her humanity intact?

My Review: Whoa! Ava is a busy been and with good reason. Ava and her cousin Toni. Its been the two of them for a long time. They move a lot, and its not fair to Toni, but Toni understands. Ava needs to keep moving, trying to stay one step ahead at all times.

They finally settle in New York. Hopefully they will be here the longest, or stay for good. Right now she needs to be at work. She loves animals so the pet store is a great job for her. Things are going well and Ava isn't as worried. So when a guy comes in for a pet she thinks nothing of it, after all he does seem human enough for her. 

So when he comes back with another guy to get advice about the new pet, she is nice and helps them out. Never thinks they could be dangerous or vampires. But somehow Ava was wrong.  The guys take her and everything moves fast.

Michael and Evan. Vampires. Michael has been looking for Ava. He wants her. Wants to turn her and become a family. Ava wants none of this. Evan doesn't even want it. But he's being forced ad doesn't seem like he wants to tell Michael no. Ava has amazing strength and will power. She never gives up, she is fighting to survive and get away. No matter how bad she gets hurt, she tries and tires and tries. She is just an amazing character. 

I freaking loved this book! I've read other books by Nikki, and her writing is out of the park once again! She takes these ideas and turns it into an amazing read. You get hooked quickly and won't want to put it down.
