What I liked about this book? Ummmm…the cover and the title. Both left my mouth watering. Paranormal. Romance. Well, the erotica part…eh, not so much but I was sold to buy it. I paid .99 cents for a copy to be delivered to my Kindle.
Now for the hard part. I’m trying to figure out how to be nice when giving a book review of this kind. Let’s just say, I didn’t sleep well last night. Actually, I feel pretty bad for this Indie author and wonder who the hell edited this piece for her. Where were her critter friends? And, if she had any did they give her descent suggestions? If so, why didn’t she take it to heart?
Let me begin my trip. The first sentence….well, read it for yourselves. When you do, hold your tongue and say it out loud three times. Oh and, be prepared. There’s a spelling error, too.
“Ana?” Ms.Sams’ voice screeching through the opening of my cubicle startled me, breaking my concentration.
Talk about hooking my ‘critical-editor-eyes’. They automatically went on. Yeah. It violently shook me up, hooking me in the wrong way. But hey, I kept reading. Why? I was waiting for her to redeem herself. That’s fair. Right? Well, redemption never came. Let me tell you why.

For one, it was never clear to me the main character was bored. If anything, the first chapter showed her to be a mean spirited person who worked under Mr. Mason for a while without being given the time of day. I mean, it was totally out-of-the-blue for her to be offered such a position. She was one of those office-whiners. Nothing backed up her ability to get a better position. And, I hate office-whiners and wanted to slap her from the beginning.

To be honest, it was never made clear that she depended on him to save her life. ***me eye-brains crossed a lot*** He stepped in after she was brutally attacked by her psyco x and hid her at his secluded home in the woods. To me, I felt he caged her there. It didn’t make sense. Michael made up lies to her mother and friend to keep her in his pumpkin shell. People in love don’t imprison their sweeties.
A mean-spirited person would’ve eventually told him to go F themselves and would’ve left. Really. And, a real meanie would’ve knocked the abusive psycho back. They don’t let anyone abuse them. It’s the other way around.
Let me add to the toxic stew.
As for the soul mate she lost in 1846…that would be Michael Mason. ***scratching my head*** Um….she has past life dreams once she’s in her bosses care but doesn’t accept them as such. And when Michael tries to explain to her who and what he is, well….she believes he’s crazy. She certainly doesn’t accept him as her soul mate. These two characters left me confused, questioning their every action.
Case in point, psycho x finds Ana at the bosses secluded house. Violently rapes her. Michael finds him. His eyes glow and snarls(this was supposed to get me thinking WEREWOLF- didn’t work). Kills psycho x right in the middle of the novel. The spiral downward takes off from this point and FAST.
On the same day, Michael and Ana do the chitty-chitty-bang-bang. OMG. Really? Why? And, what’s so romantic about that? It’s quite degrading, if you ask me and it’s not realistic.
Let me tell you what was clear in this novel. Hardcore sex. Lots of erotica. The writer showed us very well what Ana liked and where she wanted the 'willy'.
Product description should’ve read: This is a tale about two horny people who will confuse the hell out of you. It’s possible one of them is psychic and the other is a werewolf. Maybe their soul mates from another place and time.
This tale will leave you scratching your head and you’ll be asking yourself “WTF?” Why did she bother to write this? Where was her empathy for victims of domestic violence and rape?
These are only a few of the problems with this novel. As for the rollercoaster ride, it was more like Shiekra at Bush Gardens. It spiraled down and crashed. That's what happens when a writer doesn't fasten their seat belt properly.
No shiny stars for these casualties.
