A lighter version of BDB by Ward
I love supernatural romance or fantasy romance whatever you want to call them. But I have read so many of them that they sometimes become too predictable. I am always on the lookout for books and series that can hold my interest and throw a couple of curve balls too. So far Showalter has been able to do just that.
This book is predictable is some ways but in others it has an originality that I truly enjoyed. Danika is like so many women. She faces obstacles that are overwhelming but she does everything in her power to be strong and protect herself and the ones she loves. For most of the book she keeps falling short but in the end she finds a strength in her gift that makes her stronger than she could have ever dreamed.
Plus Showalter brings in a wicked question to have ask yourself, ???Can I physically harm the person I care about if pain is pleasurable to that person???? J.R. Ward had a book in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series that asked the same thing. Showalter managed to avoid going so dark and depressing though.
The two series are very similar and I like them both, but Showalter is not nearly as dark or hard core as Ward. You should try them both and see which one you like more.
