All I can say is wow! I sat down and said I was going to read a few chapters and here I am finishing the book in one sitting. Samantha Towle has done it again and I feel like she has really found these characters. They are as real and alive as someone you can walk up to on the street. I found myself once again getting so emotionally wrapped up in Alex and Nathan's story that at points I wished I could grab them both and shake some sense into them! How can you not love Nathan but Zeff....I had read in other reviews there was a story twist with him and I still didn't see that one coming! I absolutely can not wait to see how Alex will end up sussing this all out in the end and am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. But I have to put a caution here this series is like a drug make sure you have plenty of time when you sit down to read it because from start to finish it will have you hooked and nothing else will get done! And please please please Samantha Towle bring Alex, Nathan , and Zeff back soon because I don't know if I can take the wait. :)

Wow, what a ride this novel is. Samantha Towle has a nasty knack of lulling you into a safe rhythm just to snatch it out from under you and drop you down unexpected holes into dark caves of danger and mystery. I bloody loved it!
Original Sin is fantastic! Seriously I just want to keep saying WOW. Alex has run, she's semi-comfy in her new role as fugitive from supernatural hunters, and we're right in Italy with her, enjoying the view, the tranquility of the small village she works in, and inhaling hearty coffee which warms the blood and falsely makes you feel safe.
A new man steps unexpectedly into her life, and he's solid, sturdy, reliable. You will like him, a lot. He kicks ass, teaches Alex to fight, and shoot, and hunt. And then bham, catastrophe falls out of nowhere just when you're gripping the pages so tight your Kindle screen cracks. From then on you're on a dramatic ride with Alex which is all hormones and adrenaline, excitement and delirious happiness.
You are in love, in lust, in denial, right along with Alex.
The ending is so dramatic and tense, the roles and lines defined, and all you will want to do is hug Nathan and never ever stop... but you have to. The bloody thing ends again, doesn't it? Grrrrrrr. I can't say why I can't get enough of the Alexander Jones series, but I never ever want it to end. I sure hope there will be more, because I don't know who I'm rooting for anymore. Samantha Towle help me, do it for me and write another book!
I am a die hard Nathan junkie, but Zeff is.... *mashes lips together*... he's freaking AWESOME!
Can we have more Miss? Please? Pretty please?
My heart feels ruptured after reading this. I'm not sure if I want to laugh or cry.
That's damn emotive writing and I think the tears are winning. Happy tears. Lordy! What a wild ride!
The fact that I'm pining that the end has rudely been thrust on me is proof enough. The way I'm feeling, the attachment to these characters, the complete immersion inside these pages, and the dire need to want to keep reading... five out of five stars.
What a read! Fantastic!
