Pocket Star
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pages: 250

Fifteen years after Emmett Stone was unjustly imprisoned for a brutal attack, the true aggressor came forward to tell the truth about that fatal night. Shortly before Emmett’s release from prison, he’s visited by two men who understand his strange ability to rapidly heal from anything, and why he’s driven to protect those around him. And they have a very unusual job offer for him…

When Emmett cuts his hand at work, his boss insists he go to get stitched up. To keep up the charade of normalcy, Emmett goes to the free clinic, where he meets Jana. Instantly drawn to her quiet beauty and caring nature, he vows to protect her at all costs. But will his fierce protectiveness and hidden secrets cause Jana to run?

This series has been so enjoyable and I'm glad that she has decided to write another series about these guys. I loved the whole series and was sad when it was over and pushed off reading this one because of it. When the author mentioned going back to that world I of course jumped on this one. 

Then waited five months to review. What can I say, I'm a little behind. 

Poor Emmett, he really got a raw deal in life. He goes to jail for something he didn't do and there is something weird about him that he doesn't understand. Thankfully he soon understand what's going on in his life and learns about others like him. 

You won't be able to not feel for Emmett. He's gone through a lot in his life and most of it wasn't even his fault. You want so badly for him to be happy. When he meets Jana you are pretty sure that happiness will happen. 

I love these two together. Even though Jana has trouble understanding what's going on she's there for Emmett and believes in him. That's something he really needs in his life. Someone in his corner. 

I really loved this story and I thought it was the sweetest romance of all of them. I think if you are going to end a series then this is how you do it. End it on a high note. If you haven't yet read her books and love paranormal then you should give them a try. Morgan's ideas of this world are so different and fun to read about. 

If you've read Darkness Torn Assunder or any other book by Alexis Morgan I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
