Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.
Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.
But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in Las Vegas for the majority of the time but towards the end it takes a trip down to The Underworld!
Characters: The main characters of this story were Risa and Linc. Two side characters that popped in every once in a while were Ginny and Ram. Both Rissa and Linc were such strong characters. Risa because she chose to protect her goddaughter with her life as well as the fact that she continually risked her sanity and life to try to save people. Linc was a strong character because he overcame his horrible past and tried his best to not let it define him.
Plot: This story is filled with witches and demons and I loved it! We got one full love story of Risa and Linc and a little snippet of a love story staring Ginny and Ram. I was kind of surprised the author included Ginny and Ram in this novel but it was so great to see these characters and get an update of what was going on with them. This story is filled with so much action but I loved it! The romance was sizzling and spot on! And the storylines of the other characters definitely had me begging for more!!
Writing: This novel is told in third person points of view of Risa, Linc, Ram, and Ginny. I really liked the fact that we got to see into both of the guy’s minds. Too often it is only the girl’s point of view so it was extra sweet that we got two guys in one book!
Curb Appeal: I love the cover! It follows the same theme as the other books in the series and just nailed down Linc’s character to a T! The blurb definitely drew me in and really stayed true to the story. Although I wish it was noted that Ginny and Ram were featured in the novel a little bit too.
Ultimately: I hadn’t read this series in a very long time but after reading this novel I remember why I fell in love with the Wing Slayer Hunters to begin with! This story did a wonderful job of refreshing my memory and letting me see all my favorite characters again! I’m so excited that this series is going to continue and that I keep getting to fall in love over and over again.

I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
