She kept everyone from harm, except herself…
Raielle’s life was shrouded in secrets. Her power was a secret and so was her past. When she came to Fort Upton, everything changed. She discovered her family, and she found the boy who would own her heart forever. But it couldn’t last. Knowing so little about her power nearly destroyed her. She had to leave and break both their hearts.
Now she’s back in California, and she doesn’t have to hide who she is anymore. But there is no relief in that because she’s drowning in regret. She knew it would take a miracle or a sin to save her, and there was no miracle. Her survival came at too high a price. She found her father, but she can’t go back to Lucas until she finds redemption.
She saved him. Then she left him…
She came out of nowhere and changed him forever, then she disappeared and left him reeling. Her whole life, she never had anyone who really loved her. Until him. Did she think he wouldn’t come for her? Did she believe she wasn’t worth it?
Lucas leaves everything behind to follow Raielle. When he finds her, she’s a pale shadow of the girl he remembers. Her power is betraying her and so are the people around her, but one thing hasn’t changed. She selflessly wants to save the world, and he just wants to save her.
With more secrets to uncover and dark truths to face, Raielle and Lucas must make sacrifices for each other. But in the end, will those sacrifices bring them closer together or tear them apart? When he’s forced to make the ultimate sacrifice, will she turn her back on everything she believes in to save him again?

Right, so I’m going to need to make this review short, because I feel like I’ll give stuff away if I start going into things. And this is the kind of book where every detail needs to play out and surprise you on it’s own.

All I can say is that I never trusted anyone! Especially Raielle’s father, John. He was the sketchiest of them all. I wanted Raielle to connect with other family members and be able to feel a greater amount of love. Then I realized the only person she needed, was Lucas. The only love that truly mattered was Lucas’. So in the end I was okay with the turnout, and to put it simply, everyone got what they deserved. 

“Learning about my power is not going to be like learning to swim or to ride a bike. The energy inside me can be dangerous. All I can do is try to mitigate that danger. But I can’t give up and decide to go home every time things don’t go the way I want them to, and Lucas can’t keep insisting that I do.”

Raielle being separated from Lucas seemed like a good thing in my eyes. She was in hell during that period, but I actually think it made her stronger as an individual, and it gave their relationship that extra umph. Those two bump heads on occasion, but their bond and love for each other is out of this world.
She certainly finds her own voice in this book, yet she still needs Lucas by her side. He’s the only one that she can trust without a doubt. Which is a good thing, because Raielle has been betrayed in the past and in this book she gets deceived immensely. 

To Have and to Harm has much more action then book one, but still contains plenty of drama, romance, and a bit of comedy as well. Lucas and Raielle have been through countless tribulations, but they’ve managed to stay strong and power through it all. I truly enjoyed this story, but was left feeling as though something was missing. I wanted more from Raielle in terms of her using her powers more on her own terms. There wasn’t a cliffhanger per say, but it did feel like she had some unfinished business. I wouldn’t protest another book in the series!
