Review: Azrael's Light

AzraelsLight“Azrael’s Light” by Amy J. Hawthorn (paranormal, Siren, July 2013, $4.50, 117pp)

 

Series: Demon Runners of Unearth

 

Summary:
Azrael longs for a vacation that’s over two hundred years late. Overworked and heartsick, he’s desperate for peace and solitude. Diane, a former goddess, wants nothing to do with the immortal world or its inhabitants. She’s living on Earth, posing as a bartender, and couldn’t be more content. That is, until a tall, dark, and dangerous Soul Runner storms in and turns her world upside down. Azrael’s confused by a beautiful little barmaid who appears to be human, but something’s not quite right. He doesn’t know which frustrates him more, the fact that he doesn’t know who or what she is, or that she’s pulling at his heartstrings with her stubborn chin and the sexiest set of eyes he’s ever seen. But it might not matter when they are called on to prevent the collapse of Unearth and find Lucifer’s lost daughter. Coming from opposite realms with opposing needs, will the two immortals find more than they bargained for?

“Bound by Him” by Red Garnier (ebook)
I adore this cracktastic series. It is so out there. In this one, billionaire Andrew finally comes home after years away. He comes home for Whitney who he loves. Whitney isn’t so thrilled though because Andrew simply left her alone for years with no word. Of course, Andrew was in jail for having protected Whitney. Red Garnier writes the best WTF, crack reads.

 

“An Angel Exposed” by Peyton Elizabeth (ebook)
I can’t stop reading this series about people who contract with a company called Safeword, LLC to find perfect mates. This service caters to two dominant men looking for one submissive female. I’m fascinated by the fact that there seem to be no shortage of people looking for this unique arrangement. This was a strong entry into the series.

 

“The Accidental Submissive” by Leah J. Michaels (ebook)
I read this one because of the title. How does one get to be an accidental submissive? Well Karen delivers some jewelry to an exclusive hotel named the Mansion. Someone convinces her to stay the night. She ends up in the room of a submissive who is to be auctioned off. This is how she ends up on the auction block, purchased by a known sadist. The hotel’s manager steps in. I enjoyed the romance and the exploration of D/s between the couple. I wasn’t as into the suspense/murder plot as much though.

“Smoking Holt” by Sabrina York (ebook)
In this erotic romance, Bella and Holt finally hook up after years of dancing around an intense attraction. The problem is that Holt is a Dom and Bella doesn’t think she is submissive. The back and forth between Bella and Holt is well done. I loved their negotiating. I also found this to be a very hot book.

 

“No Dress Required” by Cari Quinn (ebook)
This is a cute romance about a woman who plans to seduce her best friend’s older brother. Her plans go awry when she is carjacked. This is a short one, but a fun read.

 

“Naked Sushi” by Jina Bacarr (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come

 

Published in RNN Blog

“Stay With Me” by Elyssa Patrick (ebook, review copy)
Review to come. But, when I think of New Adult romance, this is exactly what I would like it to be – and is really what I want to read.

 

“Beyond Pain” by Kit Rocha (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.

 

“Bared by Him” by Red Garnier (ebook)
Cade has closed himself off to love after losing his young wife to cancer. He is incensed when Ivy walks into his office demanding he contribute to her cancer charity. Ivy pushes Cade – hard, and of course, Cade pushes back convincing Ivy to share his bed. The story is intensely passionate and erotic, but (like all the others in this series) seriously cracktastic.
