    What I can promise about this duet:
    So many twisted thoughts. So much obsession.
    It's sexy. Gripping. Frightening. Completely addictive!
    You will inhale this story. It's a page-turner on steroids.

    I've treasured each and every story from Jewel, but this story has reached up and touched the sky for me. It should be a hard act to follow.........for any other author.
    But jewel will keep raising the sky it seems, like a personal challenge she sets for herself with every novel. She's competing with herself story after story
    As always, Her prose is vibrant and lively. It billows and rumbles, pregnant with possibilities and jewel is a sailor and explorer. Moving from one trope to another,

    Well, maybe... I don't know yet.



    The blurb is vague.
    The few reviews are vague.

    I need solid reviews before I decide. I really don't have any idea what this book entails. It sounds intriguing but as Ms. Jewel is either a hit or a miss for me, I will wait for the reviews of friends...

    And I will be very pleased if someone can explain to me WTF "The four become close—very close..." means...
    A foursome, swingers, what?

    Jewel E Ann is absolutely brilliant. I will have my full review and giveaway up on release day.
