Review of "Every Last Kiss" by Courtney Cole

Brief Summary: "Every Last Kiss" recounts the story of Macy Lockhart who is at the mercy of her Fate.

Long Review: The tale begins with Macy Lockhart attempting to get over her cheating boyfriend. Her high school drama turns out to be the least of her worries. A gift appears on her doorstep of a bloodstone and Macy's life begins to unravel. A priest from the organization Macy is a part of has taken it upon himself to let Macy know she can be in charge of her own fate. She is supposed to be a Keeper and help her charge with their important part in history. The priest sends her back to her first life in ancient Egypt as Charmian. Charmian is the handmaid to Cleopatra and must help her with her fate to die to save Egypt. While in Egypt as Charmian, Macy gets to spend time with the love of her life and soulmate, Hasani. The book is spent attempting to keep history intact and Macy/Charmian must go to great lengths to salvage history. 

The book was very interesting. As a YA novel the sexual content is muted. Sex is alluded to and talked about but no graphic descriptions are given. The setting of the book captured my imagination as I have always had a fascination with ancient Egypt. The book concludes with Macy finding her soulmate in her current life. The first book was good enough to keep me coming back for more but I don't think I will be purchasing the other books to continue reading the series.
If you are looking for fantasy series to read with romance, I would recommend the Bloodstone Saga.

Rating: 4/5
