She’s his to protect for now but this lone wolf may have found the one woman who makes him want the life he’s sworn to never embrace.
Promised at the Moon is a new adult romance and one thing that I first noticed was that the story and the characters came first and the erotic bits came later, meaning that the sex was secondary in this book rather than the focus. This was unique for me to find in the paranormal genre but in this book it worked well. Not saying that it’s bad reading erotic paranormal books, but every now and then I want to read a full on paranormal with romance but where the sex doesn’t overtake the book.
The romance was there from the beginning, their chemistry and passion was palpable from the moment Liam and Natasha met. Their attraction was instant. While Liam needs to protect Natasha, this was more than a job. I enjoyed the build up a relationship based not only on attraction but trust as well.
Both of the characters got to know each other and their past and present. It was refreshing in a short story.
The climax of the book was hot, sexy and action filled. The timing was perfect for them to give into their chemistry. I loved it.
This is the first book in the series and I have to believe that the second book will be just as amazing. Paranormal romance readers who’ve never experienced the new adult romance style of story telling should give this one a try.
