Description from the publisher:
Ass-kicking Guardian, Madelyn Mason, is the only female in a sea of supernatural males. College student by day, she spends her nights fighting for mankind--the innocents, the ones who have no clue that the things of nightmares walk among the living.

Larger than life Hollywood hunk, Brady Devens, has won the hearts of millions of adoring fans. But, the only heart he wants to win is that of his mate, Madelyn. She hasn't shown an interest in him as anything more than a friend, and he's beginning to think the Powers That Be goofed.

In this world of magik, mishap, demons, gods, and pleasure nymphs, anything is possible.  Can they find a love that transcends time and space or will the Powers That Be decide maybe they weren't destined for one another after all?

Madelyn Mason has been seeing and sensing the supernatural since she was a very little girl.  She is a Guardian, protecting the innocents of the world from the things that go bump in the night.  Her best friend and roommate is Brady Devens, Hollywood actor and
heartthrob.  Maddie thinks she is protecting Brady from knowledge of the Guardians.  Brady knows that she is his destined mate, but wants her to know him as a friend; he hopes for a love borne of friendship, not coerced by Gods and elders, but seems to be stuck in the friend zone.  Who will be proven right… or will the Gods change their mind and split them?

I absolutely loved this story and could not put it down.  There are no dull lulls in this.  Instead you are rushed along in a frantic tide of magic, shifters, nymphs, paparazzi, and fan-girls.  Don’t get me wrong, the story is not rushed at all, but the action is non-stop.  There are plenty of supporting characters who help to keep the story interesting and each one is completely developed.  Great characters, great story, and great snark - in other words, my favorite kind of story!

My only disappointment was in finding myself at the end and wanting more.  Unfortunately there is not anymore, yet.  Ms. Roth has written two different book twos, but neither have been released.  She’s trying to decide which fork to take in that road…. I hope she releases one of them soon!

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
