Synopsis Via Goodreads:

I don't do dangerous.

Smart, ├╝ber-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back.

Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me....


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

Synopsis Via Goodreads:

My kiss can kill.
I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul…or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't…I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop—or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy….

 My Review:

 I adored this new series!

Sam, poor Sam, thinks she's getting lucky when the guy who she's crushed on for a while draws her near and gives her a toe curling, mind numbing, drool worthy Kiss. He then gets up, apologizes and calls her a "Kid"... Can you say "um excuse me?" She ended up losing her soul & only finds out later what's really going on...

The best way that I can think to describe the Grays - those that steal souls by kissing.... they're like the PG version of succubus demons...

Then we have the team sent by Heaven & Hell to get rid of this little gray problem & find out who's pulling the strings & why. I absolutely adored Bishop, Kraven & the rest of the crew.

I fell in love with the characters (the good guys of course) and hated the villain - I loved the twists & turns too... You think you know all about them, what they're really like, but you are thrown a few times because they begin to grow as individuals & choose new paths.

The plot moves really smoothly, the action is great, the emotional attachment to the characters leaves you scrunching your nose & biting your lip, and the evolution of the character's keeps you attached.

I adored the creativity of this story. I could honestly see this series being a great movie if it was done right!

I adored BOTH of the covers! I love the style!!

Ending - 5 Stars
