Sometimes you just have to take flight.
A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.
Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.
I’ve read this book before but never reviewed it. I loved this series the first time I read it but its been a while and after rereading it I find myself not as attached to the characters I once was.
Allison was entitled and whiny with a rich absentee dad that I felt was tropey and a bit lazy for a storyline. I never got what Levi saw in her besides being physically attracted to her. They never really talked about anything with depth. It seemed to be all surface stuff. I think Levi liked that she didn’t fall for his charm right away, but that’s about it really.
Their chemistry was hit or miss as well, sometimes they were flirty. But she kept shutting him down and instead of him respecting her wishes he just kinda wore her down. She didn’t even mean it when she kept telling him no which I thought was a bit childish to play so hard to get. That kind of romance isn’t really my thing. I’m more a fan of meaning what you say.
But the way the author intertwined their romance with the paranormal part of the story was pretty good. I can’t really speak more on it without giving the story away. I’m not gonna read the rest of the series because I already read it and with not liking this story as much as the first time around I don’t care to.
