Jessica B. Inclan, BEING series is one of the best books i have read in a long time. i love the fact that the book had nothing to do undead (a.k.a. vampires), and is very thrilling and page turning story. it a must read.
Jessica Barksdale Inclán is a new author to me and I was pretty glad when she got in touch with me about being interviewed and having her latest Second Romance series books reviewed by me. I'm a bit late in posting this review but it's better late than never and I really enjoyed reading the first book Being with Him so much and this series got really good with the second book Intimate Beings. This is a paranormal romance that I didn't at first really understand completely in the being of the first novel but I really got into towards the end and then the beginning of the second novel. So from my review of the first novel you can say that I was very anxious to read more about Milla, Garrick and her brother Eden and her sister Sophia who she only just found out she had. I was glad that she found her brother but now they had to find their sister Sophia who could be anywhere on Earth.
The heroine of this book is Claire Edwards but she's also known as Sophia when she was a young child on the other planet. She has the ability to go anywhere on Earth as long as she knows what the place looks like before she thinks about going there and is there. She has never told anyone about her special ability but her problem is that she can get to any place she wants but she can't get back home the same way she has to find another way. On top of that she can't bring anything with her except herself and the clothes on her back so that means no money either. Then an intensely attractive man who suddenly materializes in her car one day is any indication, Claire¿s not the only one with a special ability. Ever since Darl James learned of his true origins, he has been searching for his partner and life mate, the one whose gift will complement and complete his own. Darl is Claire's other half so that means that he can be anywhere in the world but if he thinks of home he's there in an instant.
Now that he¿s found Claire, he vows to never lose her again, or their soul-searing, sensual connection, but keeping her safe won¿t be easy when they¿ve been marked for destruction by an evil, power-hungry race. A fierce battle is brewing, one that will test Claire and Darl¿s new bond to the limit, and decide the future of all their kind. So if you thought that what Milla and Garrick faced in the first book was very hard and heartbreaking for them Claire and Darl have a more intense time of this new life they have. Towards the end it seemed like things might have calmed down a bit for Milla, Garrick, Claire, Darl and Eden but I know that with the last book in the series the two books were just the beginning of a very large and epic battle to come. By the time I finished reading this novel I was so sad that there was no title or release date for the third and last novel in Jessica Barksdale Inclán's terrific Second Romance series. I did love the excerpt of the novel at the end of the book and it gave me hope because it said it will be release in Fall 2009 which isn't that far away.
San Francisco kindergarten teacher Claire Edwards has always felt like the outsider, but lately that depressing feeling has been overwhelming. Her job is boring her and the dates she does have are even more tedious. Her only fun is renting films from Netflix. However, the dreams are what scare her as how many adults sleep with a spaceship in their head.------------ Darl James has felt the same way about his life as has Claire. However, he knows why as he has learned they are not of this earth. Darl seeks his soulmate Claire because together their special skills enhanced by love make them a formidable force. Claire can think herself to any place while Darl can think himself home from anyplace. When they meet, each feels whole for the first time and soon seek other hidden aliens, but instead find themselves trapped in a galaxy war as a bellicose race that destroyed their home planet focuses on earth.--------------- This is a fun science fiction romance that ironically even with the potential destruction of the earth and the already annihilation of other planets and species is a lighthearted romp. The story line is faster than a speeding space ship, but never goes deep into any of the alien races. Still Jessica Inclan provides an engaging try to save the world by alien residents (without green cards) especially the heroine who leaves behind the crayon drawings of kindergarten artists.------------- Harriet Klausner
