Ever since the night Alex Donally found the demon blade in his hand—and in his thoughts—he has been driven to fight evil. When he meets Deb Marchand, he feels compelled to protect her from her violent ex—and aroused by the visions of passionate encounters they both experience when they touch. The blade is showing them what they can have—if Deb can risk giving her trust and heart to a vigilante.
Some time ago, Alex came into the possession of a shapeshifting blade with a thirst for vengeance. I can't say it changed him. I can't even say it bothers him. Things just 'are' in this story, keeping with its repetitive Could be, Would be, Should be mantra. What I can tell you is that I didn't care for the writing technique of this book. It was choppy, vague, and lacking a much needed flow. Being my third read by Durgin, its safe to put into writing that I won't be picking up any more of her work. Two stars seems to be the best I can ever attribute to my experiences with her, as is the best I can do here. 2 out of 5 stars.
