Dangerous to be together. Painful to be apart.Savannah Colbert knows she broke up with Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart. Now, lost in a sea of hostile Clann faces, Sav tries to come to terms with what she's becoming and what that means for her future. And that someone is doing their best to bully her into making a terrible mistake.

Tristan can't believe Sav won't even talk to him. If being apart is her decision, fine. Just don't expect him to honor it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them both in directions neither could have foreseen or prepared for.

A reckoning is coming…and not everyone will survive.

I fell in love with Tristan and Savannah in book one and the love kept on going strong through COVET. Savannah is back in her hometown but the homecoming she received was not what she was expecting. Savannah is now living with her dad and back to attending school, but without her love by her side. 

The plot in book two is more about Sav and Tristan trying to stay away from each other instead of together like book 1. Savannah is now living with her Vampire dad which is a huge adjustment on top of her learning to control her vampire side. Savannah continues to break rules but I happen to agree with everything she does in the quest to help those she cares about. Savannah's friends continue to be in the picture as great support and their side stories were just as fun to read about. Some great twists are thrown into COVET that will leave you open mouthed and we lose some well loved characters. The pace continues to move nicely and the story keeps you interested.

Melissa brought us an action packed, situation heavy sequel that ended with a doozy cliffhanger. What could possibly happen next?

I gave it 4/5 stars
