Synopsis curtesy of Goodreads:

Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—she is an Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.
A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.
With the threat of Eryx always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over.  But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

My Thoughts:

I really wanted to like this book, I truly did. I was so excited when I received it in inbox, but unfortunately everything just fell flat for me.

The pacing of the story was all off, the scenes just didn't seem to fall together- they're was a lack of continuity.

The romance was unrealistic for me, I didn't feel any sparks between Sasha and Jax. 

And I felt really depressed through most of the book- this is definitely not a title to read to put you in a good mood. Don't get too hooked on any characters, cause you might be disappointed.

I liked the overall idea that Faegen had for this story, I'm just not a fan of the way it was executed. Please feel free to disagree with me and tell me your thoughts. 

I do know there are a lot of readers out there who did enjoy this book. Unfortunately it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Happy Reading!!!
