Camilla Melini is a high-ranking soldier with an organization fighting to free elemental magic users. Her latest assignment is to find one of the legendary elemental Four Talents, and she’s determined to get in and out of Mexico as quickly as possible to avoid running into the man who nearly destroyed her life. But when the dangerous man from her past finds her, Cam must work with Marco Alvarez, a man she’d dismissed as a playboy, to prevent the the powerful magic of the Talents from falling into the wrong hands. She never expected the charming playboy to be a cunning warrior worthy of her heart…

Marco Alvarez is sent to Mexico with two goals—to watch Cam’s back and to investigate a series of arson fires targeting former AMT prison employees. But when a shadow-shifter shows up looking for Cam, Marco decides he needs to stick close to her to help her mission succeed. As he gets to know the strong-willed woman, he’s torn between telling her the truth of his elemental magic and keeping the others who share his secret safe. But when Cam sacrifices herself to save her colleagues, Marco must expose the secret of his elemental magic or risk losing the only woman who can match both his passion and his strength.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***
Although technically this is the second book in the Asylums For Magical Threats series, it probably could be read as a stand alone as he main story revolves predominantly around a different couple than book 1.   That being said I personally don’t think the reader would enjoy it as much without the background information.

As with book one the world is well developed and the characters are vivid and relatable.  The blood blends a nice mixture of romance and action but again (for me) I found the story to be just a little predictable so as with book 1 I am stuck on a 4 star rating.

That being said it is a very good 4 star read and lovers of the fantasy romance genre I think would definitely enjoy this book. My advice – read book 1 as well!
