I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Stormy Credence comes from a long line of cursed fae witches. The curse? Any humans they fall in love with die. So when Stormy falls for sinful rocker Knox Gunner, she runs before danger strikes.
Years later Stormy and her cousin struggle with the family business—Credence O, an escort service for Others. A series of unfortunate events sends Stormy slamming smack dab into Knox’s broad chest. And this time she can’t run.
The beginning of this was rough and very slow. There’s a prologue written in the first person, but the narrating character isn’t Stormy. Though the time period is at least a hundred years earlier, the word choice reads as contemporary. Chapter one begins with yet a different narrator in the first person. This switch was very confusing for me. And we don’t find out for quite a while what the prologue had to do with anything. Frankly, cutting it would have improved the story. The true tale begins when Stormy was in college and then jumps several years ahead. The pace picks up when Stormy and Knox are run into each other again and sparks fly.
Despite the start, I really liked this story. The tension is great…once it finally starts. The love scenes are scorching. Knox is a hero to drool over. And even though I guessed everything that happened well before it was revealed, I still enjoyed the read.
So if you’ve got a little patience, and like a good amount of plot with your erotic romance, I’d jump into this book. I know I’ll be grabbing the second book when it’s released.
I give it 4 stars.
