I really loved “Dead Perfect” its the first I have read by Amanda Ashley, I saw the cover of this one, and just thought that I would give it a try, and I am so glad that I did. She is a talented author, and when I checked out her website, I learned that she is also Madeline Baker, whom I have read a couple of books from, so no wonder I liked her so much 🙂 Also another reason that I loved this book, was that it is paranormal, and I love everything paranormal, and this was one of the best that I have read in the genre. It was filled with the perfect mix of everything that I enjoy in a good romance; action, romance and passion, strong characters and an intense plot. The cover also is very compelling, and draws you into reading it. There is also deep emotion that vibrates throughout the whole book and Amanda Ashley does a great job in portraying strong emotions and transferring it to the reader.
