My Thoughts: Every time I open one of Tawdra's books I get so wrapped up I forget the rest of the world. It's a really good thing my kids still nap. Undeniable is the first in The Serendipity Duet, a spin-off from The King Series. I loved The King Series, and I wasn't sure how this book would compare. It turns out that Undeniable is on a different level from The King Series. It is intense and exciting, and sexy.
Ever since I finished The King Series I have wondered about Rafe. I loved him in those books and I always wondered. Tawdra is insanely awesome for writing his story. She also did his story so much justice. I love seeing inside his head and learning more about him. Rafe is sexy and fun. He was spending so much time just trying to forget that the gradual build up of his feelings for another girl was really great. I was cheering him on the whole time. Jocelyn is awesome. I love her spunky attitude about everything. I also appreciate her caution and her honesty in the book. It's what Rafe needs. She's a strong female character, which Tawdra has a real knack for writing. She isn't needy or whiny, and I love that about her.
The settings in this book are awesome. I loved the descriptions of New Orleans and the life that Rafe leads there shortly. I also loved the setting in the country. The other thing I always enjoy is the powers all of the people possess. This book really upped that. I was especially interested in how Jocelyn's powers would play out.
I have to say Rafe really stole my heart. I felt so much for him by the end of this book. Enough to have a brief moment of "WHY!?!" at Tawdra. Now I'm just waiting for the next book, because I can't even imagine where things could possibly go next. I just have to say, Read This! Read The King Series first if you want some background (and because it's awesome, too), but definitely don't miss out on Undeniable.
