This review might contain minor spoilers, all major spoilers are hidden!

Okay this is a hard review to write because I have mixed reactions to the book. There are some things that clearly work really well. Then there was aspects of the book that really annoyed me. However in other books with the amount of issues I had I would only give this three stars but there is just something about this book that made me forgive and forget my pet hates.

I normally start with the positives but this time I will start with what didnt work for me:

Courts Dreams - I can understand how the author was trying to be creative but it didnt work for me. It interfered with the pacing of the story. I also felt that it was cheating in some ways. For example (view spoiler)

The Pacing - As stated, I think the Dreams are the major issue for me. It would slow things down and confuse me. However about the middle of the book I thought things dragged a little bit.

The Bad Guys - I was a little bit confused with what to think about the religious nut job??? I wont say any more but it didnt really work for me It kind of came out of nowhere. Also the other baddies who then turned into goodies who then were still kinda baddies??? I dont know if I buy it.

The Disappearing Pyro and The Great Escape - The pyro came out of no where (he was mentioned earlier by religious nutter) but then disappeared after they made their escape. Nothing more was said about him, didnt Court want to know more? Dane didnt demand an explanation? It is a question that is left burning in my brain (get it burning, ha ha Pyro, get it, yeah I know it was lame).

Now onto what did work for me:

The sex - gotta get this out there and say that up front. I thought it was extremely hot how Dane would verbally plan out what he was going to do to Court in EXPLICIT detail - and then he would stick to the plan!! Hoo baby did he like to use his tongue SLURP!! not only was this HOT but it was also a creative way to help Court get over his issues. (I was reminded of Bubbles photo and his tongue, from then on I pictured Bubbles no matter how hard I tried not to)

Dane & Court - they both just fucking rock!!! I love Dane the most because he was so stubborn but at the same time caring, Funny but could be dead serious. Court was flawed and confusing but also fascinating and complex.

The Magical Power - I loved how Court had this miraculous power and NEVER ONCE did he mention that he was doing gods work or anything to do with god. It was just something he did. At first I thought it was kind of like The Green Mile but it ended up quite different.

The Action - the author didnt over do that action scenes so it was believable for two gutsy ordinary guys to survive. I enjoyed the kidnappings, drugging etc

Danes Solution - I love how Dane came up with an idea that would keep the semi baddies off Courts back. It was creative and not something I was expecting, I thought it was a very ORIGINAL idea from the author.

In Conclusion:

There is something charming about this book. That is why it is getting four stars from me. Hell I would probably pay the money just for the supernova hot sex scenes. BUT... this book has something about it that makes you think about it for days.

Countless times I read a book and then pfft its over done with and onto the next one. It is only one in every 30-40 books that has me dwelling on it for ages after.

This is only the second book by this author and I am amazed at her talent. While I did have a few issues with the book the authors style made me fall in love with it anyway.

This is one author to keep an eye on - Im expecting great things (no pressure)...

Jess I couldnt HELP was slightly horrific at times. Like when the character Dane was talking about preferring to top and it was a picture of YOU in bed with Court and I couldnt STOP.
