Erin's Review ~ One More Sunset by Jolyse Barnett

One More Sunset (Mystic Escapes Book 1)One More Sunset by Jolyse Barnett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Abby Stone is desperate to get away. No, not for vacation, but to save her life. She is on the run from her ex-boyfriend. After his latest attack she takes off again. With a little help from a magical suitcase, she's hoping this is the last time she will need to run.
From the first time Dylan Reece lays on the gorgeous woman with pain in her eyes, he can't get her out of his head. When she shows up in his little island town, he knows he can't let her go again. The more he gets to know about her, the more he questions what she's hiding.
Abby has been through so much. When we first met her she was closed off and bitter. I loved watching her change throughout this story. Dylan brought out a whole different side of her. While she was strong and capable, there was a vulnerable side to her that was so endearing.
Dylan was a pretty perfect male lead. He was sweet, patient, sexy, protective, and so much more. In a sea of "bad boys", characters like Dylan really stand out.
Jolyse Barnett weaves both suspense and paranormal aspects into the story fluidly and effectively. The suspense is set up in a way that you are always waiting for something to happen. You know it's coming, you just can't be sure when. It had me racing through this book. The introduction of "Red", the mysterious and magical suitcase is such a neat addition. The story of Red is fun and intriguing. Barnett delivers this to us in a way that just had me going along with it, without questioning it too much.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and these characters. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Barnett in the future.
