Sharon Kay has done it again. Which isn’t surprising, as I’ve yet to read a book of hers that hasn’t completely enthralled me. Since this book starts in Enza De Luca’s coffee shop, I’m doubly enchanted, because um, COFFEE. I love that that she is part – owner, and bakes. Two of my favorite things.
You barely blink and the action begins. Having left work late, Enza is on her way to catch the bus on the not-so-safe streets of Chicago. But she runs into trouble instead. Trying to escape some no-good thugs she catches the attention of our hero, Rhys, possibly a couple of dark elves, and straight into a portal. One a human wouldn’t have been able to see. Rhys is compelled to help Enza, once he confirms she isn’t working with the enemy.
The seamless way Kay weaves present day Chicago with the unknown supernatural element that thrives in the city is amazing. Her character are not only believable, but likeable. Well most of them, there are a few, you will just want to knock on their butts. She brings the whole cast and crew to life in such a way, that you feel like you know them, and are vested in their future.
This is a fast paced, won’t-want-to-put-it-down read. Don’t open the book, until you can devote a few hours uninterrupted hours. I recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal romances, hot sexy good guy demons, and awesome books.
This book made it onto my favorite book list, and Sharon Kay firmly remains on my “Go-To” and “Top Ten” Author’s list.
** I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review.**
|As part of the Watchers, Rhys is used to all types of combat, pursuit, and interrogation. But hacking and tracking through hidden online channels is where he excels. Shattering codes and sneaking around firewalls comes as easily to him as a swordfight or street brawl with a predatory enemy.
Cooking up sweet new pastry creations is Enza’s dream job. Kitchen appliances never fail her, unlike every computer she’s ever touched. Her fledging baking business is doing well, yet as streetlights flicker with her changing mood, she can’t shake the feeling that she’s different from everyone else. But life as a regular Chicago girl is all she’s ever known…until one hot summer night.
Violence threatens both of them when her world collides with Rhys’s in a dark city alley. As a raw and formidable ability awakens in her mind, she becomes targeted by the last person she expects. Drawn to his sweet baker with a pull he can’t deny, Rhys vows to protect her—no matter the consequences that will change their lives forever.
|Sharon Kay writes award-winning fiction and can never get enough reading time. She loves winter and black coffee, and is endlessly inspired to write kick-ass heroines and the men strong enough to capture their hearts. Sharon lives in the Chicago area with her husband and son, and one weekend the idea for her Lash Watchers and tough leading ladies formed in her head, refusing to stay quiet until she put pen to paper. Her characters tend to keep her up at night, as they banter, fall in love, and slay endless varieties of power-hungry demons.
