Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

My Thoughts:  Allie and her best friend Jess are spending their summer in New Orleans at her father's newly acquired hotel before they start their freshman year in college.  Allie has everything planned out.  She's attending Princeton in the fall, she has broken up with her boyfriend and sworn off guys, and she's ready for her summer adventure in New Orleans.  The only thing she didn't plan on was Levi Laurent.  Oh he's definitely hot, and he most definitely knows it.  He's used to girls falling at his feet and Allie is determined that she isn't going to be one of them, which intrigues him all the more.  Levi Laurent doesn't give up easily when he wants something, and he has decided he wants Allie.  Whether she wants to admit it or not, she wants Levi to.   When she admits to him that she is looking for an adventure, he decides to give her one, and it is definitely one that she will never forget.  As Allie spends more time with 
Levi, and his friends Jasper, Owen and Hailey, she finds out that there is a lot more to them than meets the eye, something supernatural even.  She finds herself more attracted to Levi and his world, and to the city itself, that is until Levi does something that she finds herself unable to forgive, and unable to undo.  Thrust into the midst of a world that she didn't ask to be a part of, everything about Allie's life, her future, her plans, her family, her world, is about to change, whether Allie likes it or not.  

I really enjoyed this book.  It's a fresh and unique take on the paranormal, which is both entertaining and exciting.  I enjoyed the pace of the book and the story and characters are really well written.  Levi is really, really hot, and you couldn't help but be drawn to him.  He's really romantic also.  He messes up pretty bad, but he does love Allie.  I liked Allie's character, and I really liked Hailey also.  The romance is hot, and there are also some pretty intense and dangerous moments. This is the first book that I have read by Alyssa Rose Ivy and I found it to be not only creative, but also captivating.  I read it in one sitting, dying to see what was happening next.  I am on the edge of my seat anxiously awaiting the next book in the series, Focus, which is expected to release in January of 2013.  If you love paranormal romance that includes some action, adventure, danger, and a unique supernatural twist, this is one book you will want to check out.
