Goodreads summary:
Mo Fitzgerald has made her choice: A life in Chicago. A future with Colin. To leave behind the enigmatic Luc and the world of the Arcs. But the more she struggles to keep her magic and mortal lives separate, the deadlier the consequences. In the end, Mo must risk everything--her life, her heart, her future--or lose it all.

What I thought:
I enjoyed the first two books in this series, so I was looking forward to reading this. I really love books with magic in them.

Mo is even more embedded in her uncle's mob business and is trying to leave the Arc world alone. However, it isn't that easy and others are after her for the bond she has with the magic. Everything just gets more complicated, but yet she still resists making any definite choices.

This one was both good and bad for me. I loved Luc! I really liked Mo's friend Lena. I liked some of the plotting and how things moved along as well as the ending.

Mo frustrated me at various points. I just felt she wasn't completely fair to Colin or Luc, or her dad and mom. I didn't like the way she was pushing things with both guys and the sexual content that ended up being in here, although mostly non-descriptive. The way she let in the rage and desire for revenge bothered me too. I also didn't like that she felt it was fine to choose to stay in Chicago and revenge Verity, which Verity never would have wanted. It seemed like she should have been a little bit wiser than she was after all she had experienced and the people she was dealing with. Some things she did handle well, like the Arcs and her friends.

It was still an enjoyable read, but I wanted so much more.
