Synopsis:(From Amazon)
Matt Sky is trying to return to normal, having faked his death and come back to life.  He and Hannah move back in together, and Matt attempts to put his demons to rest as they strive to grow their relationship into something durable and honest.  But as the two become more and more entangled, and the heat between them intensifies in all the best possible ways, Matt's desire for Hannah ignites cravings he has kept at bay for a long, long time...

Hannah finally has the life she's always wanted: she's pursing her career as a literary agent at Granite Wing Agency, she is writing her first novel, and she is living with her hot, passionate lover.  But as Matt and Hannah explore a new intimacy, Hannah finds there are parts of Matt--dark, wild, uncontrollable parts--that he has yet to show her... that he has yet to show anyone... Under the surface of Matt and Hannah's domestic bliss, deeply buried secrets burn, and all of a sudden, the least foreseen obstacle threatens to shatter everything they've worked so hard for.

I have both loved and hated parts of the Night Owl trilogy as I've read, as a reader should when seeing a relatable character go through many emotional stages and disasters.  This book had great promise, and it was exciting to see what would happen with Matt and Hannah, if they would get married, if they had a strong enough love.  What I didn't like, was the ending.  I think that the ending was a bit too easy.  The stakes that had been set all throughout the book were thrown aside in favor of something that was kind of what Matt wanted, and something that Hannah could live with.  While the ending did show a clear picture of what their future was/would be, I wish Pierce had written a bit more about Hannah's fears, Matt's desires, and if the two would ever meet in the middle.
