***Misty – #NerdGirlShadow’s  Review***
This is the second book I’ve had the pleasure to read by Dowson, and I was very curious as to what she had in store for me. Sophie has a strong and undeniable attraction to her stepbrother. (It’s not like they are blood relatives or anything) So you find yourself wanting something to happen. But, when Sophie’s life falls apart due to tragedy (no spoilers), stepbrother Logan decides to keep his attraction to her a secret. Even though they had already shared a pretty intense kiss.
Years later, Sophie finds herself cheated on by her boyfriend with nowhere to go… but to Logan. True to form, Dowson turns up the heat. On again, off again romance in the midst of Sophie’s life tumbling around her. She runs away from him again, only to find that the universe isn’t done with them just yet.
The tension between the characters is great. As they struggle to make heads or tails of their relationship, you will struggle right along with them. Dowson pulls you into their turmoil and then, you just have to know what’s going to happen next.
A definite page turner, some pretty steamy scenes (I mean, STEAMY!) and concise writing make for another best seller for Dowson to add to her list.
