Rae has taken a huge step by leaving her mentally, verbally and physically abusive boyfriend and his dysfunctional family. What she thought was her last great act of defiance that would shut the door on that chapter of her life turns into a vicious and deadly case of stalking and vengeance from her unstable ex, Ian. If not for the handsome biker in leather, who comes out of nowhere to rescue her, by beating off Ian’s attack in a bar, it could have been the end of Rae, period. With little trust for men and their motives, Rae is reluctant to trust Parker after his violent, yet necessary attack on Ian. But there is more to Parker than meets the eye, he isn’t just a leather-clad biker, he is intelligent, caring, educated and the son of a powerful oil magnate who has earned his right in the company hierarchy. Parker also has a deep-rooted pain that draws him to feel protective toward the feisty, yet damaged Rae. Gun shy, Rae is reluctant to trust her instincts about Parker, but her heart is telling her to go for it, he’s worth it. As Ian continues to invade Rae’s world and the aggression becomes lethal once again, will Parker become another victim of this crazed monster? Dark, edgy and sometimes brittle, Love’s Paradox does NOT have doves flying overhead or delicate pastel hearts beating for joy, but there are deeply emotional and fiercely vivid scenes that will cause some major gut-clenching and disgust. Hats off to Laura Kreitzer for her ability to tell a tale that sadly, resonates too true in today’s society. She pulls no punches, makes no excuse for her characters, just lays it out there for the reader to see, feel and try to get past. Is this like so many new Adult romantic dramas? Yes and no, Ms. Kreitzer brands this tale with her own unique style and eye for drama and love. What could have been just another dark and angst-filled New Adult romance becomes a warning to others who could find themselves or someone they know trapped in a deadly relationship. Rae is not a shrinking violet, she is strong, has a sense of identity that was temporarily beaten out of her. Parker was the intriguing knight in shining armor ready to battle her demons to cleanse his own soul. Tread carefully through this jagged and barbed tale, but you get to the end, you’ll be glad you traveled its path. I received an ARC edition from Revolution Publishing, Inc.in exchange for my honest review.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.  This book did not start out well. I actually stopped reading about 5 pages in and then went back after reading a couple other books. The description was not nearly as exciting as the actually book. I surprising really liked this book. The further in I got, the more I liked it. I really wasn’t sure about it starting out, but at the end I loved it.  The end was really cute. Very satisfying. I really liked our guy. He doesn’t get along with his parents, which I actually liked. It made him seem more real. I liked the girl in this one. I didn’t love her, but I did like her. She was a little sassy and wasn’t irritating unlike some girls in other books I have read lately.  I really liked the writing and I can’t wait to see what else this author comes out with.  4.5/5 mainly because the beginning didn’t suck me in at first.

I really liked this! I thought the characters were great! They were funny, and sweet, and very enjoyable to read about. I thought Parker was excellent, and I liked Rae; even though she made some not so smart decisions, but I still liked her a lot. The story just flew by and it kept me entertained the whole time! I liked Hunter also, and I look forward to reading a book about him; it seemed to me that could be a possibility. Parker and Rae had excellent chemistry, and I loved reading their moments together; they were so sweet together and it's nice that the story had light hearted moments when the subject matter was of a serious nature. I like that there weren't a bunch of games played; for the most part everyone is honest with each other, and it's nice not to have all these misconceptions and secrets causing un-needed and avoidable problems. One thing I didn't really care for was how things ended with the problem of the story, but I didn't let that bring down what I liked about the story, and I'll definitely read more books written by Laura Kreitzer! Great read!

This is one of those reviews that is really, REALLY difficult to write. First of all, it's difficult because I don't like to say anything negative about an author's work. Especially considering with Love's Paradox, my problem lies in that I was just bored with the story. I didn't feel any spark or excitement. The first chapter was interesting enough, but I feel like from there the story just sort of went downhill. A lot of this could just be preference, also. I didn't really like any of the characters, either. Except for Cherry. I think it was Cherry's sense of humor that made me love her. I just wish I felt the same about Rae and Parker. Speaking of the two lovebirds, I don't know why but their love story was just "eh" for me. I didn't feel it. Partially, I think things moved too quickly and it was a little unbelievable. I kept waiting for that moment where I'd start rooting for them. Everything felt too formulaic. Secondly, I don't like giving a harsh review when I feel like the author has serious talent. Because, here's the thing: Even though the story was flat for me, I can recognize a talented author. So often I read books that read like a child wrote them, but that wasn't the case with Love's Paradox. I can sense that Ms. Kreitzer is an intelligent writer.
