Sometimes you just have to take flight. A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi. Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

Allie starts Princeton in the fall so she wants one last adventurous summer away from her ex-boyfriend. Allie and her friend Jess decide to work at her dad's hotel in New Orleans. Jess is a bit boy crazy and immediately wants to check out the New Orleans night life and eye candy while Allie wants to stay boy free. They meet Levi and his friends who are more than happy to show them a good time. Jess ends up deciding she wants to head home and Allie's plans for a boy less summer are failing because she has no one to hang out with and of course Levi's sexiness and persistency is hard to resist.

I loved the paranormal aspect of this book. The synopsis doesn't give much away and neither will I because I don't want to ruin the surprise. It is totally different than anything I have read. The whole time I'm wondering who and what is this supernatural society?! When some of the info does come out Allie takes it surprisingly well. There is a good and fun side to it that she enjoys and I would too. She is open to what is happening but doesn't fully understand the implications she could get caught up in. There is always a downside to everything isn't there. Especially something you don't fully understand. I will say I loved the underground world, party and interesting hierarchy that was mentioned but the end also had some scary scenes and showed the evil side of the paranormal world as well.

Levi is sexy, sometimes arrogant, but also sweet. From the moment he sees Allie he knows he wants her and he won't give up. He doesn't get too stalkerish or psycho but he is persistent. I loved Levi but towards the end he does something bad and sneaky and totally wrong but I still have hope that they will work it out. I have so much I want to say but I am trying to keep the supernatural society mystery so I can't get too into it but I just loved it!!!!! I could not put the book down and read the entire thing in one sitting. I honestly don't think I even took one break. lol I really really need the next book already!

"You're so beautiful. So unbelievably beautiful..." he trailed off as his lips met mine. The kiss started off gentle but neither of us could keep it that way for long. It might have been our second kiss, but it was our first real one. I realized quickly that the first time at the bar we had both been holding back. Levi deepened the kiss, his arms wrapping around me tighter before lowering me onto the sand.

Rating: 4.5/5

Alyssa Rose Ivy lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write.


Closing my eyes, I tried to block it all out. Convinced I was about to die, I was only partly aware of his arms around me.
“You said you wanted an adventure,” he said quietly, teasingly, as he tightened his hold.
My stomach dropped out as an intense and complete feeling of weightlessness engulfed me. The wind stung my face as memories flooded my mind. I thought of my parents, of all the things I wanted to tell them but never did, my friends from home, and the experiences I longed for. Quickly my thoughts changed to more recent memories, to Levi.
“Open your eyes,” he whispered, somehow knowing my eyes were clenched shut.
Against my better judgment, I listened. The scream died in my throat as we hurtled toward the water that had seemed so beautiful from the roof above.
