Knowing this would focus on Charming and Frankie (who were nothing less than explosive in their interactions in Recalled), I was excited to read this. It took me less time to read than the first book, I just didn’t want to put it down. The only reason I did is my Kindle was falling and hitting me in the face because my body just couldn’t stay awake.
The chemistry and word wars continue between Charming and Frankie, with each realizing about the same time their feelings for the other person. That was a nice change – there was no one-sidedness to the feelings. They were there and unacknowledged, yes. But it wasn’t ever one was ahead of the other emotionally. They were on the same journey.
Piper is still around, of course (being Frankie’s best friend and practical sister). Storm also comes around again. Piper’s acceptance of the whole Death world and how it works seems a little eerie, and with her reaction (or rather, non reaction) to something very specific, I can’t help but wonder if Hebert is going to add more mythology to the story. Because let’s face it, the Grim Reaper is mythology.
I think the colour pink is just right to describe this couple. Sometimes a neon pink, but other times a soft, pastel-like pink really captures them. That pink that you see in the most beautiful sunsets reflecting over the ocean. Yeah, that sounds about right.
