(Synopsis) Old demons are back.


Maddie’s dealing with the fallout of her choices. Safety and happiness are relative, elusive things she’s desperate to have. But they will forever remain out of reach until the demons of her past are laid to rest.


Tyler’s mistakes resurface to haunt him and he’s just beginning to understand that money can’t fix a broken relationship. He must open his heart and search for answers he’d rather not find.


She wants peace in a world made of chaos.


He wants to rid himself of a lifetime of guilt.


They’re soul mates, but that’s no guarantee.


They’ll need to rely on each other to find their happily ever after.


Because the fight never ends—it just gets easier with someone at your side.

Passion Rising punctuated the fact that, as a whole, the Original Sin series is really more of an experience than just a series of books for you to read. These four books are not just a story of a boy getting a second chance with a girl and, after some drama and some bad stuff happening, living happily ever after. It's not nearly as cut-and-dry and "tropey" as all that.

Once again, I have to be super cagey, because so much of what happens in Passion Rising is a culmination of things that have been happening and building throughout the first three books in this series. I CAN say that this final book is about self-reflection on both Tyler and Maddie's parts. After everything that has happened to them, they are both left saying, "Okay, so now what?" Them being a couple isn't in question - of COURSE they are a couple. But, the health of their coupledom depends largely on how they now see themselves.

If you'll recall, in my review for Sin With Me (Original Sin #1), I said, "Truthfully, these two are some of the saddest and most despondent people I've ever read about." And it was true. The circumstances of Maddie's and Tyler's lives up to this point had lead them to their own versions of hell on earth. They were treading water with no forward movement and no hope.

You would think that with all the crazy stuff that happened to them over the three books prior to Passion Rising, that we would now see a woman and a man broken beyond repair. But, instead, we see the opposite. The events leading up to book 4 forced them to work together, to wade through their past hurts, to face their current fears and to lean on each other.

I love the way these two love each other. They would give their lives for each other and are looking forward to what comes next in their lives. Their banter is adorable, their sex is hot and their love is lasting. It's everything you could want in a romance book. Plus, you get angels, devils (figurative, not literal), action, closure and a really good death scene.

I think JA Huss considers her first collaborative writing effort a success. I know I do. And I'm already looking ahead to what's next from my new favorite writing duo.

Passion rising is the emotional conclusion to Julie A Huss and Johnathan McClain’s humorous, sexy, action-packed series, Original Sin. Where these lovable characters end up is anyone’s guess, but know that where one goes, the other will follow.

Hello world,
So I'm grateful to the great doctor Ehi for helping me with a very powerful spell to get the lottery winning numbers. I won the lottery of SIX HUNDRED AND TEN THOUSAND US DOLLARS ($610,000.44) a week ago in a jackpot from 4 lottery play. The first thing I bought was a brand new car with all the features I never dreamed I'd have. From there, I manifested my perfect dream home and I am living the best life you ever imagine. I really don't know how to express myself right now for I am overwhelmed with joy. I want to appreciate doctor Ehi for his loyalty and magical works. It exists only in the right hands and with it everything is possible... He is good with love, healing, pregnancy and other spells. If you need any of the spells you can write to him. Google Mail: ehitemple@gmail.com, whatsapp messenger number: +19723839289 may God bless you all.

I want to appreciate Dr. Ebore for his loving kindness over my life and my family. Two weeks ago, I won the lottery of one million Euro from 2 lottery plays. After so many years of playing the lottery and losing, I was referred to Dr. Ebore by a colleague whom the prophet helped with a very powerful lottery spell. He gave me the correct lottery winning numbers which I played and won. Right now, I have started a business of my own and also bought myself a house with all the features I love. Thank you Dr. Ebore for your honesty and magical works. If you are interested in any type of spell E.g. Money spell, protection, love bond, success, weight loss, healing, fertility, promotion, etc. please contact ehitemple@gmail.com, text/call: +19723839289.
Best Regards,
Blessings.

How To Get Your Ex Lover/Partner/Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Wife Or Husband Back

I was married for 16 years to a loving mother and wife. We had 2 children together who are now 11 & 13. I reconnected with an old girlfriend from college on Facebook and we began an affair and I left my wife. The woman I had an affair with is a wonderful woman and I love her too and our kids had begun accepting the situation and my wife has kind of moved on, but not in love with the man she is seeing. I thought I fell out of love with my wife and I felt terrible about what I did to her - she is a good woman and I don't know what came over me. I decided to try and get her back and I was recommended to Lord Zakuza for help to get reunited with my wife and within 48 hours after I made contact with Lord Zakuza my wife decided to work things out with me and now we are back together with our children living as one happy family. I really don't know the words to use in appreciation of what Lord Zakuza did for me but I will say thank you sir for reuniting I and my family back. For those in trying times with their marriages or relationship can communicate with LORD ZAKUZA through the below informations.
