A Little Fun and a Lot Hot
originally posted at: www.whippedcream2.blogspot.com ***** When Egyptian goddess Menhit - who also happens to be a gorgeous shape shifter - saves bicycle messenger Aric from two attackers in a back alley, it's only a matter of time before these two discover amazing passion together. Though Aric doesn't realize it at first, Menhit knows they are destined to be soulmates. Later that night, she comes to his apartment, where they share the first of many incredible days and nights together. The intimacy between them is well drawn and naturally developed. Though Menhit is perhaps a little too quick to claim Aric as her mate, based on nothing more than a feeling, I was glad to see that the author did allow these characters' feelings to grow so that a forever-relationship doesn't feel rushed or forced.Was this review helpful?

The scenes where Aric introduces Menhit to modern-day conveniences like the TV and telephone were both humorous and believable, and we get to see him in his everyday job as well. There aren't too many secondary characters, but they are believable as well. The bike messenger job does pose unanticipated danger, though, as someone is trying to hurt or maybe even kill Aric. Thankfully, Menhit's sixth sense saves him more than once, which adds a charming element to the story, where heroine saves hero instead of the other way around. The conflict in this story, though, is a little undeveloped and not entirely convincing. It's pretty obvious from the start who wants Aric out of the way, and even the black moment of the story isn't as climactic as it could have been.
Aside from this, the passion between these two central characters is what drives the story. When both realize they cannot live without the other, the conclusion to Love's Fiery Arrow is sweet and satisfying - and a little bit hot as well!
