Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…
I decided to read this novella closer to the release of the first book, because if I liked the waiting would be smaller. But this couple was cute and they made a great adventure together. I liked knowing more about Dez and even some of the stories behind this world.
For me the best part was that Justine and Dez knew each other for years, so in reality they were half in love before the mating. Dez needed to share more about his disappearing act, but their time together was really nice.
This was just a prequel but I really liked the way some of the information was shared. This is a completely different story and I loved the gargoyles, they are fun and very normal, after this first glimpse of the new world, I have to say Jennifer caught me again.
