There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
As with most reviews you run the risk of spoilers, I'll try not to be too heavy with it but I need to explain myself.
The characters are interesting, the story is pretty good, it's well written with few mistakes and those that you do read aren't going to throw you off completely. I loved how it's a story of two people who are both pretty new to emotions, romance, lust/love and reading them dance around it without being overly annoying with it so there was some push and pull. There were a few plot points that made me question why certain things were never discussed but again nothing too bad...that is until the book began to draw towards its climax and conclusion, that's where things start to fall flat.
I give it to Allen that the antagonist isn't completely unbelievable nor is the motive but the goal is questionable because it's never really explained why exactly it's so important. You can make assumptions but it isn't so clear. The execution of it all is a bit convoluted as instead of leaving clues as to how all of it is possible we get an exposition via the big bad doing to cliched gloat/explanation of their plans. An exposition dump that late in the story makes you wonder why it wasn't carefully explained throughout the story, there was plenty of time for it to happen.
And that is what the climax becomes a big let down of tell but not show. A big battle happens but we don't see it, the fight with the antagonist is also missed, taking place off screen so there's no real excitement while something that was promise to happen that may have helped didn't and it's not really addressed as to why it didn't, emotional moments don't even hit you like they did earlier because it's confusing and every other sentence I was going, "Wait, what?".
The ending itself is what throws off the flow of this story, again it's anti-climatic after a decent build up, it felt rushed or as if Allen had lost interest and threw something out just to finish, or Allen had a page limit and compressed it down what it had become a deus ex machina ending that'll have you staring blankly wondering where this idea came from and how far you're suppose to be willing to suspend belief to accept it.
It's a bit disappointing because this story has great potential but the short story format does it a great disservice.
Rip was from a long line of witch hunters. In fact one of his ancestors was Rip Van Winkle. All male offspring in his family line were cursed with being unable to feel. They could eat, but not enjoy it, drink spirits but never be intoxicated.(That one wasn’t so bad) The worst was they could have sex but never feel pleasure. Oh, the witch that cursed them was viscous for that one.
That all changed as soon as he saw Celeste. He began feeling things he never felt before. He wanted all the feels and she was the woman he wanted to give them to her. She was ready for the job!
This story is a slow burn love story with a HEA that I was not expecting. I was pulled into the storyline and very committed to finding out what was going to happen next. While fantasy is not my usual jam, this book held my attention from beginning to end and I really enjoyed it.
