4 Chocolate Kisses
I will be right up front and say that I usually stay way clear of Young Adult Romances, Urban Fantasies… whatever. I am so glad to be out of my hormonal angst years for decades and generally give them a miss if I can help it. But due to some friends’ reviews on Goodreads and in addition to the fact that I have a weakness for all things Lycans, I gave this a chance and I am very glad that I did.
It was such an enjoyable read. The author engaged me from the start. The tension was excellently handled, made sense and it kept me reading. At times it felt kind of Twilighty with High School kids, cars, cafeteria. But I did not mind it. I was curious to see what would happen to the heroine. She was interesting from the start and it was not a story that had any sex which was refreshing. I am not against sex in books, but I relish a story much, much more.
I am reading quite a few books, presently. One at a time, of course. Currently I am reading, , The Dracons’ Woman, by Laura Jo Phillips and it is ok so far.
I kept a quiet few days, thinking about Whitney Houston and her family. I still feel sad, but not so bad now that she is buried. It was a beautiful funeral. My thoughts will stay with her family.
I was asked in a survey who I thought started the urban fantasy/paranormal maybe Romance, and I thought it was Laurell K Hamilton with her Anita Blake Series. Anita Blake was the first kick butt heroine that I ever read. I loved books one to eight. On some days I will even go so far to say that I liked it up until book 11. Even though I stopped reading them at book 11, I think I still purchased a few more before I stopped. I am a very loyal reader and one forever hoping. Jean-Claude was a most delicious hero and Richard gave him a run for the money. I would say that is my first and foremost favorite Urban fantasy.
