“This was a good one. I loved seeing Robby able to heal and move on to what's really important after his torture. It was hard seeing him struggle with his desire for revenge. I like when the tough guys are "saved" by a woman. And Olivia is a strong female lead for this book. She's bad ass and tough but still a little scared and vulnerable. I liked the little peaks into Phineas and his current struggle with the woman he is into as well and can't wait to see more and how that all works out for him. I also enjoy reading more with Carlos, he's very intriguing to me. And finally, it was great to meet another shifter. I like how they keep popping up where you'd least expect them.”Myndi T wrote this review Saturday, November 2, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I wasn't sure how Sparks could pull off a virgin heroine in today's modern world but Olivia had a very good (acceptable) reason for still being one when she meets Robby. This one went on my Keeper Shelf, needless to say!”Karen Docter/K.L. Docter wrote this review Sunday, April 7, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Recovering from being tortured by the Malcontents, Robby MacKay retreats to a greek island for a much needed rest. He is also planning his revenge. On the island he meets Olivia Sotiris, an FBI agent visiting her grandmother. Olivia has taken a break from work because she is being stalked. A serial killer she helped put behind bars has become obsessed with her, tracking her every move and sending her stuff in the mail. Robby decides to help her discover who his accomplice is. He also wants to get close to her so he can figure out how to tell her that he is actually a vampire.
This is a good addition to Sparks' Love at Stake series. Both the hero and heroine have obstacles to overcome. Olivia is used to feeling the emotions of everyone around her and knows when they are lying. She doesn't understand why she can't read Robby and doesn't know if she can trust him. Robby, must decide if revenge against the Malcontents should rule his life. And, will Olivia accept him when she finds out he is a vampire. My rating: 4 Stars.”
“May update rating to a 4star after I sleep on it.
Robby and Olivia's story was different from the rest because most of the time they got to know each other was from a long distance. They communicated through calls, emails, and web cam.
They actually met on a Greek island where they were both sent for work related time off. Robby because he can't get revenge off his mind after being captured and Olivia because a criminal she sent to jail using her power of feelings others emotions keeps sending her apples from a heavily guarded jail cell.
They night they met, both feels a connection like no other. For Olivia, its been hard dating because of her built in lie-detector, but with Robby she can't sense his emotions, which alone freaks her out.
On the second night they are suppose to meet, she receives apples and packs her grandmother up and they head to Houston for the holidays. Once back at the job, her supervisor unknowingly causes her to suspect Robby and she refuses to open the mail he continues to send her.
Finally he gets a hold of her and convinces her of his innocence. As they work together, more arrive and to make matters worse, Casimir is getting involved. Its at his latest scene that Olivia witnesses them teleporting in with her friend J.L. With the help of Sean Whelan, the truth comes out before Robby can tell her.
As she mulls over the announcement, J.L is cool with it and the discovery their boss in a shifter.
When clues add up, they take off to a storage unit facility where a battle breaks out. J.L is severely wounded and upon Olivia's request, Robby changes him.
Staying with J.L Olivia turns over in her mind they character she's seen in Robby. His condition shouldn't hinder her love and finally she accepts him.
Just when they believe they have Casimir and his revenge will be won, he's informed the stalker has found Olivia and must choose....
and appears just in time to save her from him and together kill him. Now revenge isn't number one on his mind.
With Yia Yia's approval with the promise of grandchildren, Robby proposes to his one true love, Olivia. ”
