“This book is refreshingly different and completely captivating, I was hooked from the moment I started reading.” - The Book Sirens “This was definitely an intriguing story….” - Reader Review on Goodreads “From the first book I read by Alexandrea Weis, I have been hooked. I love her writing style and her inherent wit and humor.” - Reader Review on Goodreads
I was hooked from the moment I started reading. This is the 2nd book in the Corde Noir Series and can be read as a standalone. This is my first book from Ms. Weis, and I enjoyed every word. The story takes place in The Shallows, an apartment building in New Orleans with lots of character, a troublesome history...and it's haunted.
Sam Woods is a minister’s daughter; she is strong, dedicated, funny and a complete klutz. She has a past that has made her feel unworthy, and a secret that she doesn’t share with very many people. She can talk to the dead. When she gets a sexy new neighbor, she is instantly attracted to him. Despite her own misgivings, she can’t seem to stay away from him.
Sam stole my heart from the first word. She’s sweet and innocent, but quirky and feisty at the same time, and a complete klutz. The proverbial girl next door with a slightly kooky and naughty twist.
Sebastian is dark, and sexy, and so very mysterious. He is a complete control freak, and completely protective. You see glimpses of someone who is insecure and devastatingly afraid. I loved his character. I would love to meet my own Sebastian.
There were moments when he was in his “control” mode that you wanted to shake him. He had so many demons from his past that he battled, the only way he knew to protect himself, was to maintain complete control of his emotions. Love wasn’t something he was willing to give. Even though, by all definitions, he exuded love towards Sam, he just couldn’t admit it.
Will he be able to overcome his fear of letting his heart go and love someone, or will he lose Sam when she can’t take living in his world on his terms anymore?
This book is a great read, filled with steamy sex scenes, romance, humor, and just a bit of paranormal. I loved this book, and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
