Description: It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, con­vinc­ing Perry Palomino to open her­self to their bur­geon­ing rela­tion­ship has been more chal­leng­ing than hunt­ing ghosts, bat­tling demons and stalk­ing Sasquatch com­bined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror show run­ning is to take on a third part­ner in the form of the mys­te­ri­ous Max­imus Jacobs — all while inves­ti­gat­ing a sin­is­ter voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the per­fect South­ern storm and a recipe for dis­as­ter. Luck­ily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line.

Come Alive is told from Dex’s POV.

My Thoughts: If you haven’t given at least one of Karina’s books a try yet then shame on you! She has so many books that meet various different tastes (though they’re all at least NA…no YA here folks) and all of her characters are flawed yet perfect. Since this book is a 7th in the series, I’ll keep this review short. If you’ve gotten this far you already know the quality of Karina’s books so my review will probably not affect your decision to read it.

This particular installment is told from Dex’s POV. Though I understand the need to have it in his POV, I missed Perry and I wanted to be back in her head. I found myself forgetting sometimes whose head I was in because I was so used to Perry. Also, Dex thought of sex a bit too much for my taste. I’m sure that’s probably how often guys really think of sex but I just couldn’t always relate. Still, this book was great and scary and had all the greatness one would expect to receive from a book by Karina Halle. I give it 4 stars. I can’t wait for the next installment, Ashes to Ashes.

I'm glad you're enjoying this series so much. I really like Karina Hale's other series but I'm too scared to try this one!

I can see that. At the beginning I was like, NO! It's not even that scary, but the further along I go, the scarier it becomes. If you get scared, I'd suggest you stay away and just read her other series'
