"Lately, life has been going well for Ayden. His relationship with Lyric is starting to heat up and his career in music is taking off. But the disappearance of his sister still weighs heavily on his mind. 

Desperate to find out where his sister is, Ayden decides to take drastic measures. But his dangerous risk leads to the unraveling of secrets, and he’s left facing a darker past than he ever could have imagined."

     I really love this series, the characters and the story are so good. Sorensen makes you feel what the characters do, be it pain, happiness, or fear. You fear for Ayden and his sister, you feel happy when Lyric and Ayden grow closer. I have read a decent number of her books, enough to gauge her writing, and this is her best work. Her paranormal books are a little cliche and cheesy, I still like the Shattered Promises series though. Anyways, onto the rest of the review.

Ayden has really started to open up and move forward with finding out his past. As well as closer to Lyric. He has had some really great growth over the course of this series so far. He started off as a really closed off and quiet guy and has turned into a pretty strong person, even though he often feels like he's weak and helpless. But the way he puts everyone before him and cares more for others, really makes you just love this character.

Lyric has really matured through this series. At the start, she was kind of naive about a lot of things. She has lost none of her happiness, but she seems to understand, better, that not everything in life is as carefree as she hoped and perhaps thought. She obviously knew on some level that not everyone had a happy home life, but until she met Ayden and found out more of what he's been through, I don't think she fully understood. 

The synopsis almost makes it sound like Ayden has an almost care-free life, except for his missing sister, but that is only partially true. He still struggles to remember what happened to him while he was kidnapped, and trying to move past his anxiety so he can become more intimate with Lyric. I really love these two together, they are adorable, and the love they share for each other feels real. 

I am really looking forward to the fourth book. I don't want it to end yet though.
