Breaking the Storm

( 7 )

Overview

New Adult/Adult Paranormal Romance

I wanted Knox. There was no need to deny that fact.

Knox was the type of guy you gravitated to, who stood out in the crowd. It wasn't just his classically good-looking features and perpetual five o'clock shadow. It was his raw energy that entranced me, that made me feel like a giggly, fumbling high school girl, happy to be in his presence.

Overview

New Adult/Adult Paranormal Romance

I wanted Knox. There was no need to deny that fact.

Knox was the type of guy you gravitated to, who stood out in the crowd. It wasn't just his classically good-looking features and perpetual five o'clock shadow. It was his raw energy that entranced me, that made me feel like a giggly, fumbling high school girl, happy to be in his presence.

Yes, there's no denying it, front man Knox Gunner was a sexy badass.

It didn't matter that he initially thought I was some bored, rich girl trying to live out some wild fantasy of being with a starving musician. It was uncomplicated and that's what we both wanted. At least that's what I convinced myself. I wasn't ready to admit to myself that my feelings for Knox were getting dangerously deep--waiting to lay siege on my heart. I was falling for him... and this was dangerous. The rules were clear: falling in love would obligate me to expose what I truly was, setting in motion his slow march to death.

    Stormy is one of those Credences .  She knows not to fall

    Stormy is one of <i>those Credences</i>
    .  She knows not to fall in love with a human  because that'll lead her to losing her life and the life of her lover but Knox Gunner might be the one to make her break all of her rules.  She has to break things off with him...right after she has him once.  Things don't go as planned and when they meet again years later the attraction between them is still there and this time Knox isn't going to let her leave him no matter what is going on in the Other world.  Will it be enough to keep them together and alive?




    I've got to say this book really took me by surprise.  I haven't really enjoyed any of the New Adult(NA) paranormal novels but this was one that gripped me from the beginning.  It's not very long, a little under 200 pages but it packs a lot into that amount.  I have so many questions and I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the next book just to found out what else will be revealed.  




    Sedona Venez has just shot onto of my author's to watch list.  Seriously check this book out.  She has another series going and I will definitely be reading that.

    I give this one 3.5 stars.
    This book started out awesome! I loved the prologue! I could have read a book just about Tiber and Solista, though I know how that would end.
    I really enjoyed Knox and Storm. At times I thought that they were not expressing their emotions/feelings to each other and a whole lot of assumptions were made. 
    Storm has so much pressure on her from her mother and aunt to succeed that she doesn't have much of a social life. For the most part, she is okay with it because of the Credence curse, but her cousin, Light, thinks that she needs to find love. 
    Knox changed a lot from when he and Storm went their separate ways a few years before. When he sees her again, he has no intention of letting her go this time. 
    There is a lot going on in this story besides the main characters. The world that they live in may be in danger and that wouldn't do any of them any good. There were times that I was confused as to what was going on and who was who.
    Overall, it was a great story. 
    I am really looking forward to the secondary characters story

    Rough start, then it's awesome!

    I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Stormy Credence comes from a long line of cursed fae witches. The curse? Any humans they fall in love with die. So when Stormy falls for sinful rocker Knox Gunner, she runs before danger strikes.

    Years later Stormy and her cousin struggle with the family business—Credence O, an escort service for Others. A series of unfortunate events sends Stormy slamming smack dab into Knox’s broad chest. And this time she can’t run.

    The beginning of this was rough and very slow. There’s a prologue written in the first person, but the narrating character isn’t Stormy. Though the time period is at least a hundred years earlier, the word choice reads as contemporary. Chapter one begins with yet a different narrator in the first person. This switch was very confusing for me. And we don’t find out for quite a while what the prologue had to do with anything. Frankly, cutting it would have improved the story. The true tale begins when Stormy was in college and then jumps several years ahead. The pace picks up when Stormy and Knox are run into each other again and sparks fly.

    Despite the start, I really liked this story. The tension is great…once it finally starts. The love scenes are scorching. Knox is a hero to drool over. And even though I guessed everything that happened well before it was revealed, I still enjoyed the read.

    So if you’ve got a little patience, and like a good amount of plot with your erotic romance, I’d jump into this book. I know I’ll be grabbing the second book when it’s released.

    I give it 4 stars.

    There are some things I like and some things I didn't like. I really liked the storyline and I was hooked from the beginning. The sex scenes are really good and I think the characters are well developed. 

    The book started off pretty good and then got a little repetitive. It felt like the beginning of the story took a really long time to get through. Then it started to really pick up at about 30%. Then when Storm and Knox cross paths 5 years later is where it started to trail off for me. Knox turned into an arrogant jerk when he became a famous rock star. He's really into D/s relationships, which is fine... but it felt like that part of the story was thrown in as an afterthought. I feel like the D/s relationship was awkward through the entire book and could have been left out and I would have liked the story more. It almost feels like... Since BDSM is popular right now, let's throw some D/s in this book to see if we can sell some more books. That's probably not the motive here, but that part of the book wasn't believable. Actually, Knox and Storms entire relationship wasn't believable to me. The fantasy and paranormal aspect was more believable and interesting to read about. I just want a book with an Alpha male whos Dominant without being a Dom. 

    Storm's character was a little annoying to me. She is this hybrid Fae-Wolf-Witch and was raised knowing this and learning about the Others... but she cant sense another 'Other'? Not believable. Knox Gunner was great in the beginning but he lost me when he would refer to Storm as his Slut and turned into a jerk for a while. Also, I absolutely do NOT like his name. I think its cliché and silly. 

    Over all, it was an ok read. If you can get over the weirdly placed BDSM, the story and sex are pretty good. I give the paranormal part of the story 4 stars, the sex 4 stars and overall execution of the book 3 stars. I will say that the I really like the book cover! I give that 4 stars.

    I enjoy paranormal romance a great deal. This story had everything I love about the genre. Erotica, mystery and an eternal bond that can't be broken. Although its a fast read you get complete character development, a strong plot and a whole new world to lose yourself in. I can not wait for book 2 in the series.

    The first book in the Credence Curse series is an engaging and intriguing book. I enjoyed it very much, but there are some parts of it that I was disappointed with.
    The chemistry between the hero and heroine, Knox and Storm leaps off the page and grabs the readers’ attention and the sex scenes between the two are hot and steamy giving you shivers as read them.  The reader gets completely caught up in the battle of wills between the couple as Storm fights the attraction and Knox manipulates her into a situation to get what he wants. 
    And if the emotional upheaval isn’t enough, Stormy and her cousin run into problems trying to run their mothers’ company. The suspense builds as they try to figure out just who the enemy is; the competition, the Others Council, the Credence family curse or some mysterious enemy that no one believes is out there.   
    The author has created a great paranormal world full of intrigue and bewitching characters that will leave you wanting more. But there were a couple of things that was disappointing.  First the ending of the story was a bit abrupt and leaves us the story with a major cliff hanger.  Also, the action with the heroine was involved typical female stupidity.  Storm even said that it was stupid, but she done it anyway. I was also somewhat disappointed with the way Knox talked to Storm; some of the language usage came across as demeaning instead being sexy or endearing. I also felt that there were a few areas that could have been expanded upon to give the reader a better perspective.  It is good the way it is written, but could have been great.
    That being said, I still enjoyed the story very much and I will be looking forward to reading When Lightening Strikes, which I hope will be soon.
