Praise for Oil and Water-
"Lara Ann Dominick's Oil and Water is a great addition to the paranormal romance genre... Gripping, entertaining, and moving, this paranormal romance has more than one surprise in store." - KJ Simmill, Award winning author of the Forgotten Legacies Series⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"This isn't a Twilight rehash, although some readers may be tempted to compare the two. Dominick's vampire work stands on its own, and you will find yourself breezing through this addictive story with the desire to see how it all plays out." -Tammy Ruggles for Readers' Favorite⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"The characters are gorgeous and the idea of danger is written about in an exciting manner. The writing is strong and the author uses it to lure the reader into the psyche of the protagonist, and as they turn from page to page, the surprises just keep piling up. Lara Ann Dominick's gift for plot comes out strongly in Oil and Water, a title that makes for a great canvas that readers will enjoy." - Jose Cornelio for Readers' Favorite⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Oil and Water by Lara Ann Dominick is a wonderful story that is brilliantly written... Lara Ann Dominick's prose is as strong and beautiful as the story she tells and I enjoyed the way her characters are interconnected, and the stakes she weaves for them. It is fast-paced and packed with steamy action." - Romauld Dzemo for Readers' Favorite⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Fans of complex new adult paranormal romances will really enjoy the many characters and twisting plots that surround the romances and intrigues within this tale. Author Lara Ann Dominick has crafted a fully-realized tale that goes beyond the basic tropes of the genre, delivering dark surprises and sudden twists of the plot that are both satisfying and unexpected. The character work is stellar and holds the novel together at its core, presenting us with relatable heroines who have their own strengths but are flawed and hard-done-by in the tale so that we can root for them to rise up and own their power. What results is a lavish and graphic dark adventure for a bold readership" - K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oil and Water is the gripping story of two women coming from vastly different backgrounds. Elsie is a struggling millennial living at home re-reading old YA vampire novels and longing for them to hold the same meaning they once did. Opal is a powerful, calculating vampire with no empathy, nor connection to humanity. With underlying themes of consent, mental illness, and toxic relationships, it’s more than just a paranormal romance story.
Dominick is a natural storyteller and keeps you guessing as the story unfolds, building mystery and intrigue as you peel back this onion of a story one layer at a time. There is action, romance, drama, and paranormal suspense. I enjoyed the spin on the typical vampire lore and the deeper dive into the mental anguish one would go through if they found themselves in the company of the undead. There were plenty of plot twists and for those that want to see a strong female lead embark on a hero’s journey, this book is for you.
This book has my Highest recommendation!
The elements of the love story and page-turning action complement each other to create a story I couldn't put down (even when it was way past my bedtime and I definitely should have!). I was caught totally unprepared for the twists. it was thrilling.
This is definitely an author I will be keeping an eye on. I can't wait for her next book.
Opal & the other vampires take the reader on an edge of your seat, action packed tale. Don’t think this is just another tiresome romantic vampire story because this book has plenty of twists and surprises that don’t disappoint.
I devoured this enticing story and was completely satisfied with the ending.
I look forward to reading more from this author!
I loved the twists the author took and was so happy I didn't see them all coming. The plot was well done and gave me only the amount of info I needed until the rest was revealed.
Characterization was very strong. I enjoyed watching what Elsie turned into throughout the entire book.
This isn't your cheesy vampire love novel. There wasn't a love triangle to distract from the real danger and the underlying heavy themes (consent, drugs, sex, toxic relationships, etc) made this story feel so much more real.
I love the bit, "like I said I wanted ice cream"
The author is like Amber, patient and a master at the trap she sets up for the reader. I loved being tricked and highly recommend this book to anyone needing a thrilling page turner!
