Niall is perfect in just about every way, right up until he leaves town for a short trip…and vanishes off the face of the earth.

Review: Ben is a teacher of folklore and very reserved in nature, whereas Niall is fae. In the fae’s life they are given one year to go to the human world and see whatever they want. Time is different in each world, where three days here is about a year in Niall’s world. They are immortal creatures that love to play pranks and jokes.
When Niall comes across to the human world he is finding it a bit boring. That is until he comes across Ben striding out of the water. His heart takes a beat and he wants whatever he can get with this man, however going home to inform his family that he wants to stay with Ben leads into disaster. Disaster meaning he was gone from the human world for almost a year. Ben has no need for a man like that, but then again he has no real clue what Niall truly is. Then the huntsman catches his scent and the paranormal world is brought right out into the open.
I came across these authors at different times, having read a book or two by these women made me decide to give this story a chance. However I have got to say that it was one hell of a weird story. It starts off a bit fast and things are moving at a great pace, but then it felt like they rushed the rest of it. It doesn’t make the story change but it just made it feel off. I am still not too sure I liked it or not, but will reserve judgment for a later time. I can’t imagine these two worlds in this way and I am not a big fan of the fae, but I did get a kick out of them
So I am off to read book two in this series and hope to see these two in the next story even if it is just a peek.
