Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely.
But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.
Instead, Nick became her dirty little secret— a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her.
Bess had always wondered what happened to Nick after that summer, after their promise to meet again. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers his heartbreaking fate—and why he never came back for her. Suddenly Nick's name is on her lips…his hands on her thighs…dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths.
Dead, alive, or something in between, they can't stop their hunger.
She wouldn't dare.
This was really different from the teenish books that I'm used to. When I first bought this book, I expected it to be a nice younger romance with a bad boy. Boy was I wrong, I think its safe to say this book belongs in the adult genre and is not recommended for younger kids or even younger teenagers. Every scene is filled with sex and that's pretty much what it's about. And hey, maybe that's what you like to read about-be my guest and go ahead and read it then.
Will I reread it?
Yeah, I guess I would. It was entertaining and filled up hours when I was bored. I doubt it will be the first book to reread, however.
Overall I loved the tone and how fast paced the reading was. Megan Hart didn't drone on and on about character after character and she didn't over detail. It was overall that perfect number of pages and just a really good read.
