Jamie McGuire tells a story full of danger, passion, and a
love that will tempt both heaven and hell. This is a story that will keep you
guessing until the end and will keep you turning the pages. Nina is stuck
balancing her normal college life with a life that has been hiding in the
shadows since she was born. Jared has given up trying to stay away from her
knowing it could cause her danger but unwilling to back away.
I greatly enjoyed this book with all its ups and downs; I just
could not put it down until I knew how it ended. McGuire creates some great
characters in this series, Providence is the first book in the series, and I cannot
wait to start the next book in the series, Requiem.
