My rating: 5 of 5 stars

a great read about temptation. Evangeline is happy with her life until she meets Landon Kelly at an art gallery showcasing a friends work. Upon meeting him, she is instantly drawn into a world od fire and temptation without even knowing his name. She tries her best to resist the call, but her heart betrays her. As events unfold, will this temptation make her happy or ruin everything?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that i just couldnt put down. Well developed characters like Evangeline trying to put herself first but still vulnerable or Jesse as kind and caring. Great cast of supporting characters like the control freak June or the calm Mira.
i loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the sense of art bright and colorful in vivid colours of pinkd and oranges as something more and to tell a story. i also loved the imzgery of destruction with the shipwreks and fire as conduming but emotive. Or the house by the lake as one serene moment in all of life with the sunrise and the cool waters. Or the busy sense of the cafe bars and Evangelines work fill of life and people all conveyed through verse was wonderfully written. Or the use of the sense throughout with smell and touch and taste as ifyou were actuslly there.
Setting the novel in free verse was a brillaint idea to display Evangelines thoughts and feelings. The lack of punctuation in short stanzas was a brilliant addition, for a fast paced feel that even pulled the reader into the spiral of events and was also easy to follow. Overall, a great read and i would give it five stars.
