Summary: Phoebe can't believe her luck - finally, she's met the perfect guy. Daniel's got everything going for him and Phoebe's smitten.  So smitten that she even forgive him his strange behaviour whenever she does something unexpected.
Soon Piper and Paige succumb to his magic too. But is he just some hot guy who's a control freak or is there something demonic going on?

Phoebe's not the only one having trouble with love. Leo's been so busy with his Whitelighter duties, he seems to have forgotten about his wife and son. And to make matters in the Manor even worse, everybody is fighting a cold despite Paige's desperate attempts to "vanquish" it.

  The rating is for the whole book  
Rating: humor: 1 out of 3 possible
tension: 3 out of 3 possible
story: 1 out of 3 possible
style: 1 out of 3 possible
 
Summary: 6 out of 12  
  Tension is well kept till the end and earned the book a high score in that field. Characters are flat and there is endless talking about the pro's and con's of Daniel being evil. The story itself is quite thin but at least writing style is bearable.
The side plot with the cold is only mildly amusing though Leo's obsession with his duties are merely annoying.
