Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.
Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.
Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.
Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.
One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.

I have always been a fan of paranormal books and especially paranormal romance. I haven’t read much New Adult PNR but I plan to change that after reading and loving this book.
The book opens up with Karla’s best friend giving her a birthday present, an ARC of her favorite paranormal romance book. Who doesn’t love the fact that Karla’s a book nerd!?!? She falls asleep dreaming about the Kann, the character in her series (and how many of us haven’t done that?). A paper cut and weird dream later and we get Kann in the flesh. (Aw, yeah). I love that the character actually came to life! I wish mine would come to life!

Karla is a strong woman, decisive, and fights against having a man control her in any way. She’s also honest with herself, but terribly hurt and deep down has a hard time letting Kann in all the way even though they share souls. They bond through a process called Numate (pronounced newmate). It is a special kind of mating where souls of the two mated become irrevocably linked together; they will both live for as long as the other. They both will die if one of them is killed and they cannot bear to be apart.

Kahn is hot, determined, overprotective (to the point of being controlling) and instinctual. Kahn is a gargoyle. He eats and hunts wild animals. He is the epitome of predator and doesn’t like being controlled. He feels like Karla summoned him and trapped him in her world. So, instead of falling head-over-heals, he instead tries to manipulate her. He can be arrogant, but deep down has a really good heart. He doesn’t know or believe in love but by possessing Karla, at least she doesn’t get the better of him first. But things don’t go as planned.

I really enjoyed this New Adult Paranormal Romance. If all the stories in this genre are as good as this I will be very impressed. The writer did a phenomenal job! The writing was exceptional, the story unbelievable, and the flow was seamless. 4 out of 5 stars.
