What would you do to have the body of your dreams?
Kiera hates being overweight and hides behind thick layers of clothing. One night, her friends present an opportunity that seems impossible to believe. With a single spell, she can have the thin physique she's always coveted.
But all magic comes with a price: no sex or she'll revert back to her old body. Kiera accepts the cost. It's not like she has men lined up at her door. Obeying this one tiny rule isn't difficult at all—until the night she meets Cain, a were-tiger and a soldier with the Eternal Forces.
When a slew of unexplained murders forces Kiera and Cain together, they'll have to face the horrors of their pasts. Will Kiera realize she is worth more than her outward appearance? Or will she make the wrong the choice and lose everything—including her life?
I wasn't really sure what to think when I first started reading this; it didn't seem like a paranormal read. When the characters were first introduced I wasn't sure how I felt about the paranormal world being thrown in, but I ended up REALLY liking it!
This is a book about learning to love yourself and being happy with you, BUT it also has some suspense, action, steamy scenes, love, and of course the supernatural. It was such a good balance of each and kept me glued to the pages!
Kiera is a heavy set girl who has been to hell and back in life and is content being alone. Well that is until she is given the one thing she has always wanted a skinny body. But all things come at a price! Her price was sex, something she thought she would never crave anyway. But what kinda story would that be?
Kiera's past and present come crashing together leaving you breathless and anxious for more! Things happen that you won't see coming! You will however get an ending; whether happy or sad you will have to read ;-)
Rating: 4.5 stars
