Great beauty hides dark secrets...
Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she’s sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.
Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

“Aggressively, the wolf pounced onto Anastasia’s bed and then crept forward, forcing her backwards until she hit the headboard.”
This was a YA paranormal romance, with werewolves!
Anastasia was an opinionated girl, and I did think she came across as rude at times. She was certainly stubborn, but really didn’t deserve the treatment she received at her new school and from her grandparents! There were some real mean girls in this book! And they also seemed to be bullying Frost!
“Her reputation precedes her,” Kate answered smugly. “This town never forgets.”
The storyline in this followed Anastasia at her new school, and also focused on the romance between Anastasia and Frost. Their romance did happen quite quickly, but to be honest Frost was my favourite character in the book, he actually had manners and was polite to people.
“You’ll never win,” Kate hissed, starting to circle Anastasia as if they were wild animals. “This is my school and my town. You don’t have a chance.”
The ending to this was good, but we were left with a bit of a cliff-hanger so I’m guessing there will be another book to follow this one.
