This story is about Korey and Gigi in Book two from the Sacred Places series. Korey is a 700 year old Druid sorcerer and he is I completely and totally in love with Gigi who is a waitress at his cousin's bar. Korey thinks GiGi is only human when really she is a goddess. Gigi is hiding from her uncle who is some really bad guy who is out to get rid of Gigi (i.e. eradicate her) because of something really great she had done to the Druid children but in her uncle’s eyes, she became a threat. Neither realized what the other one was doing for the other and was determined to protect each other from the dangers of their immortal world.
Korey and Gigi have been working together and against each other for years. The attraction sparks everytime they are in the same room. Korey refuses to allow the attraction to go anywhere because she is not” Immortal” which would make her “his mate”. Something Korey is mistaken about because there are things about Gigi he doesn’t know…Things from Gigi’s past come back to haunt her and and threaten all she the people she loves & things and destroy all she had worked for, Gigi will need to make a choice- the hardest choice that may affect the outcome of their 4 year friendship. Will it become more or end things for good? Gigi wants to protect the man she loves and to do so, she is willing to risk everything to keep him and her friends safe. When it came to Korey, He was in denial, he was in shock he didn’t recognize her as a goddess and that he didn’t see his mate –He had such a hard time moving past his guilt and it really hit their relationship hard. Did their relationship survive. Did they get their HEA? Well, this is such a fantastic story, I really think you should grab this and find out!!
Both Korey and Gigi are awesome H/H. They are so in love with each other yet want to protect the other from bad things and kept the other from the bad things in their past, just wanted to see the other smile and laugh because it made their day brighter. As the 4 years progressed, their relationship strengthened and moved on and grew hotter, brighter, deeper day by day. I loved how they communicated. I loved the secondary characters in the story and the twists that came in the story. I yelled at Korey when he acted like a jerk but I knew that Gigi would get thru to him and loved the outcome and cannot wait for book 3. I just wish that Korey wouldn’t have acted like a jerk the way he did, and would have shown a little more sense. I do love the author and her writing abilities. It is so seamless and the way she can write for the women and men, it flawless.
My Rating: 4.8 stars *****
