scorching modern day paranoral erotica!,
This review is from: The Calling (Immortals, Book 1) (Mass Market Paperback)
I have been getting burnt out on some of the scores of lackluster paranormal romances out there, but having read a Jennifer Ashley Historical before and enjoyed it-I decided to give this book a try. I am so glad I did:)
While I loved the book and found it VERY erotically romantic and very fast paced and adventuresome-I did want to forewarn a few readers who may not like erotica.
First-I throughly feel this is erotica and not just a highly sensual romance. Why? Well-there are explicit love scenes as well as scenes in the beginning that are more about sex than love. Very explicit language, over half a dozen bedroom scenes as well as a love scene written about 2 other characters besides the H/H-so to me that constitutes erotica or at least being labeled an erotic romance. Again, not a problem for me personally, but I wanted to warn those who are disturbed by this.
Second-there is lots of violence and bloodletting-integral to the story-but again, be forewarned if you're squeamish.
Finally-witchcraft-which I found very interesting-is heavily involved in the storyline. The heroine is described as a "hereditary witch"-meaning her family has been witches for generations. I thought this part of the book very well done and not too "over the top"-but I did want to mention it for those who don't read romances with witches (though I would question why anyone with a problem with witches would read paranormal romances to begin with-LOL).
I read the book in a little over half a day and didn't want to put it down. I loved that Amber was a very strong, brave heroine! The secondary characters were very interesting and you want to see their stories as well. All in all, a fun, sexy, romantic adventure that I highly recommend! A great escape from the everyday grind.
