Introducing Friday Frights ~ Paranormal Romance Reviews!

We'd like to introduce you to our new guest reviewer, Shirley. Shirley is going to focus on reviewing Paranormal Romance Books. They will feature on the blog on Friday's which will be known as "Friday Frights"!

Here is a little bit about Shirley

Hi there, my name is Shirley, I am retired, I am also Donna’s mum…yes my daughter has asked me to become a guest reviewer and Willow has welcomed me with open arms!! Bless them!! I have been reading ever since I could pick up a book. I have literally read thousands and thousands of books. Reading has always been my favourite pastime from Romance (Mills and Boon) to modern Romances, Crime, Thrillers and most recently Paranormal. Donna got her love of books from me as she was always encouraged to read and I always had my head stuffed in a book! Our house was covered in them as is my house now! Although Donna has now got me a kindle so my shelves are somewhat reprieved at the moment!

Donna and Willow were eager to introduce a paranormal romance side to the blog and as I was reading this genre anyway I said that I would do whatever I could to help. You will have to bear with me, I am new to all this and extremely nervous but I will always give you my honest opinion.

I can’t wait to get started on Friday Frights!!

And here is Shirley's first review:
Kades Dark Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans 1) by Kym Grosso

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 4.5 Stars

Have I got a delicious treat for you. This book is full of wild but oh so sensual sex and a terrific story line to boot, with humans, vampires, werewolves and voodoo mages.

It starts out with a murder in Philadelphia where our lively blonde detective Sydney works for the PPD and is called in to investigate said murder. Unbeknown to her, her werewolf friend Tristan has heard rumours and thinks this will not be the only murder. He has asked a dark deliciously sexy vampire friend “Kade” from New Orleans to help the PPD as Tristan believes the supernatural are involved.

From the start Sydney and Kade are butting heads as Sydney thinks that she is quite capable of solving this murder with her usual PPD partner, not with an outsider and a vampire to boot. Kade is equally determined to be there as just by examining the body he knows that the supernatural are involved and it would be dangerous for Sydney to do this on her own, so an uneasy partnership is established.

Whilst these two people are investigating a mutual sexual attraction is hotting up between them, WOW!! Things come to a head and with their first kiss, Sydney whispers against Kades lips…

“I want you Kade, please don’t stop.”

A mind-blowing experience for both of them and neither one of them can forget it and are left wanting for more, lo and behold, boy do they get it together, eventually! Hot Hot Hot! Starting from an erotic threesome dance with Kades friend Luca, Kade comes up behind Sydney and says in her ear…

“You seem to like playing with two men, enjoying our dance with Luca aren’t you love, but remember Sydney, I DON’T SHARE and at the end of the night you’re MINE.”

This man has made his claim!!

With them getting into dangerous situations and the oh so hot hot sex you will thoroughly love this book. It caught me from the get go and I had to finish it in one sitting as I could not put it down.

Kym, I wanted to be Sydney, I was so jealous, where are these men like Kade? I want to meet one!!

All jokes aside, I loved this book and I see that there are three more after this one. I cannot wait to get stuck into them, I can see me burning the midnight oil!!
