I know this is not only me. I hate not reading the first book in a series for several reasons. For example the book: The Offering I'm currently reading which is third book in the series, I don't want read. Don't get me wrong, I read great reviews so far. I even like the book so far.

Here's the cover




The Book Cover Is Freaking Beautiful!!!

Summary:

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father-polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a vow. She'd been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there's Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the a…
