4 Chocolate Kisses
It was not as bad as I remembered and am raising the book to 4 stars. After reading some contemporary romances and enjoying them, this seemed much better to me.
1 Chocolate Kiss.
I really wanted to like this book. I thought that the first book of the Elder Races by Thea Harrison was most excellent. Loved it.
The story had me going though up until she started pulling on her Oracle power. It reminded me of Octavia Butler’s Mind of my Mind, but not nearly as good. There was so much telling and not showing. I thought it was rushed and after that the story just went down hill for me.
I put it down.
I really wanted to love this book.
I do not know what it is, but Ms. Harrison has her moments when she really has me in the palm of her hand, swept up. I love her take of types of heroes. Ancient, alien – very OTHER. I just loved that in her DRAGON BOUND book and even at the beginning of this book. I really liked Khalil. She really has a talent with that.
But then there is the rest of it that actually makes a good book, here she misses it with some sort of fluff piece with domestic living like a contemporary romance. The kind that is totally uninteresting to me. And not what I usually look for in a paranormal romance.
I just felt the book was all over the place.
But from all the 5 and 4 stars, maybe it is just me.
I will buy her next book as it is about Pia and Dragos, my favorites, so I will try yet again. Call me wacky! But after that…
