Author: Brit Lunden
Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy
Reporter Dayna Dalton's reputation has been ruined since birth. The daughter of wild child, Becky Dalton, is expected to follow her mother's footsteps; never given a chance to prove she's different. Dayna's been in love with Clay Finnes since she was a teenager. Her unrequited love for Sheriff Finnes leaves her empty. He's happily married and unavailable. Instead, Dayna finds herself stuck in the revolving door of bad relationships. But this is Bulwark, Georgia, a town where strange things are always happening. Dayna is doomed to this loveless life until she can find someone who will appreciate the depth of her character. Can she overcome her fears and look beyond her own perceptions to accept a greater love?

Raw and edgy could be the descriptive phrase for this work. The raw nature is overworked. There are no redeemable characters in the entire story. The lead character is beyond flawed and her end destination is probably the most logical location for a person with no morals, ethics or character.
The paranormal aspect takes a long time to come to fruition. When it finally comes into view, the book sags. As a voracious reader I have already read two amazing books that worked bringing mythical beings into the modern world. This book pales in comparison.
Often stilted and just plain nasty, this book could appeal to the lowest common denominator. Not a book I would recommend. For the longest time I wondered if Dayna would sleep with the kitchen sink as she had slept with everyone else.
Disclaimer: I received a paperback copy from the author in the hopes I’d review it.
