The reader is informed pretty much from the start what the end game is for Nika and Alena. The why is what is slowly unearthed as the story unfolds. Not solely a romance, or even just one, this book moved at a steady pace, introduced some interesting characters I would like to know more about and had a touch of mob mayhem and violence.
Nika is along for the ride with her older sister Alena and is instantly attracted to Declan, security for Alena's love interest Andre. Declan isn't just an employee, he owns the security company and has a few other tricks up his sleeve. The paranormal spin of Declan being a dream walker and Nika having her own skills added opportunities for both to acquire information in their own unique ways as they both try to accomplish what brought them to the mobster's son's house in Miami. Several story lines could be confusing by the author did a good job world building and eventually tying everything together.
I enjoyed the cloak and dagger, the family ties that both Declan and Nika have and the eventual resolution of a story line I frankly was having a hard time imagining ending well. A mental escape that took a little thought on my part to keep up and follow along.
