Storm Mistress by Brandy L Rivers

Nothing is as it seems...

Everything Isadora Starling wants is right there in front of her, but Toryn is off limits. He's her best friend. She's been denying her heart all these years, afraid to lose him.

Toryn Flame has a long past full of secrets. None of which he can share with Isadora, the only person who truly matters to him. She's the one woman who has never shown a hint of lust toward him, but even if she did, pursuing her is forbidden.

That all changes when the family Isa doesn't know decides it's time to reveal who and what she is. After Isa's recent attack, their motives are unclear.

His only goal is protecting Isa. Toryn will do everything in his power to keep her safe, including going against orders from his king.

Toryn's only fear is losing Isa's trust. Once the truth is revealed, can she forgive him for years of misdirection and omissions? Can she come to terms with a world she doesn't want or know?

This is the second book in the Others of Seattle series. I really enjoyed it. I decided to get this book in audio format, since I had listened to Night's Embrace this way. This book is again narrated by John Lane, who did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life. Isadora Starling is a wonderful character. I like her strength and determination. She has felt a strong attraction to Toryn ever since she met him, but he's never shown any interest in her. When a stranger brings danger into her life, she turns to the only man she can trust. Toryn Flame is also a wonderful character. I really liked him. He is a little mysterious and I enjoyed getting to know him better. He is determined to resist his attraction to Isa, as he has a mission to fulfil. Unfortunately, danger forces him to face breaking Isa's trust and reveal secrets that have been kept from her; that's she's a Fae Princess and has power over the five elements, fire, air, earth, water and wind. I started to listen to the story and was quickly hooked. I found myself on a wild ride of action, danger and romance. The story is told through the eyes of several characters, though Isa and Toryn have the most say. I love meeting Toryn's mother, though she scared me a little. I also found myself intrigued with the dragon, Adanathos (sorry, not sure of spelling), who was only in a few scenes. I also enjoyed meeting Leon, Toryn's friend. I enjoyed watching Isa grow into her powers. She is a truly powerful and formidable fae. I also enjoyed watching Isa and Toryn's relationship bloom. They both have an amazing chemistry that fizzes and pops; the sparks are extremely hot! The danger from Remus and his greed for Isa's power made me shiver. I know the Fae world is a little strange, but his plans were pure evil. However, although I enjoyed the story, I also found that there are mentions of other characters' and relationships from the Others of Edenton series that surprised me. As I have only read a few of the books from that series, I found the mention of these couples as a little spoiler-ish. Therefore, I have come to the decision that I will not be continuing this series until I have caught up with Others of Edenton first. I mean no disrespect, because I really love this series. I love the Other's world in Seattle and the characters in it and look forward to continuing it soon. But, for now, I will be focusing on the Others of Edenton. Brandy L. Rivers has written another intriguing paranormal romance series. I loved her fast paced writing style, and the flow was wonderful. Her characters are lifelike and likable. She is now one of my favourite authors. Due to explicit scenes of a sexual nature, as well as use of bad language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 18. However, I do recommend this book if you love hot erotic paranormal romances full of werewolves, vampires, fae, druids etc. - Lynn Worton

This is book two in the Others of Seattle series and it didn't disappoint. Isadora Starling has no idea what or who she really is. She has lived her life the way she wanted it, with the exception of the one man she doesn't think she can have. Toryn is always nearby, ready to help her if needed, but only as a friend, or so she thinks. Toryn Flame knows of Isa's past and has been sent to protect her. He has deep feelings for her, but knows she is off limits. He also doesn't think she feels even remotely the same. Once Isa's past and who her parents are is revealed, everything changes. She knew her feelings for Toryn were strong, but when they come together it's magical and full of power. They both feel their bond strengthen and know they were meant to be together. Emotions run deep, Isa has a chosen path she wants no part of, and more truths will be revealed. This story is full of love, lust, action, and they are all woven together perfectly. Brandy Rivers does a great job of continuing this series and I will be diving into book three soon!

Storm Mistress by Brandy L. Rivers I just finished this book and was amazed at the depth of writing. Brandy wrote with flare and the story was intriguing. There were places where it felt was too wordy to me. But, it was still most enjoyable. I love the romance mixed in with all the twists and turns.  I adored all the “others” that were written about. Brandy made it feel like I could go to the neighborhood bar and find “others.” I was gifted this book for an honest review.

A love story we’ve all been waiting for... Brandy L Rivers’ “Storm Mistress” – Book 2 of the Others of Seattle series – takes the reader deeper into the land of the Fae and the mythology behind the characters that we’ve heard of before, but never got a full grasp of. Briefly introduced in “Nights Embrace” – Book 1 of the Others of Seattle series – Isadora Starling and Toryn Flame take center stage in this newest tale of the Others. Isadora and Toryn’s friendship is very much like that friendship that most women will have at some point in their life. You know the one – where each party in the friendship wishes it could be more but for some reason neither is willing to risk the friendship for a chance at something more. Granted most of us probably don’t possess the types of secrets that keep these two apart, but it is in overcoming those secrets and the obstacle that they create, that can alter a friendship forever. The two have spent many years caught up in an elaborate “dance” in which neither seems to say what is truly on their minds. But when Isa is attacked it’s clear that their secrets can no longer remain hidden. Her once unknown family is emerging from the shadows and Toryn is sworn to do whatever he can to keep her safe. The twists that Rivers incorporates in her stories leave me speechless. Characters from other (connected yet separate) series appear and play roles that upon reflection finally explain actions previously taken. Other characters step up to their potential and set us up for future stories. It all coalesces into a love story we’ve all been waiting for – one in which we can see our own secret desires achieved with magical results. Ms Rivers is even able to make her readers understand and relate to the nerves, fears and worries that both Isa and Toryn experience – the fear of ‘will he/she understand why I have lied/omitted’ and ‘will he/she still be able to trust me after this’. Legitimate fears we all have had at some point and which are far from glossed over during the stages of their relationship. Rivers’ ability to bring so many different mythological entities together in her stories has wowed me time and time again. Storm Mistress only serves to reinforce my awe at her story-telling abilities.

So this is the story of Isadora and Toryn. They are both pretending that they are not interested and playing the best friend card. Their friendship, however, comes jam packed full of secrets and some of them are about to get let out of the bag. Isa finds out that she is more than she thought but then again so are half of the people she knows too. Luckily for her, Toryn is there to help her and because of the depth of their friendship, she trusts him. It is Toryn himself who keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop, for her to storm off and Isa has to show him that she won't be doing that. Roxy and Trevor are mentioned from book 1 but it is mainly Mike talking to Isa about them, not themselves directly. New characters, good and bad, come into play in Isa's story and she finds out more than she would have ever believed possible. I am really glad to have read Isa's story because from the snippets you got out of Night's Embrace she didn't really come across that well. That actually shows how well Brandy L Rivers has written these books. I didn't like Isa from Roxy's story because Roxy thought she was using her brother and wasn't good enough for him. Reading Isa's story, I know her feelings behind what she did and why and also how she felt about Mike. Totally worth reading!

Isa has been in love with Toryn since she met him, but he never acted like he wanted her so they had become best friends. So she constantly turns to other men to try and get Toryn out of her system. She has an on and off again thing with a guy named Mike but that isn’t going to go anywhere so she knows that she has to let him go she just doesn’t want to hurt him. Then one night a guy hits on her and she doesn’t get a good feeling about him so she says no. He however does not take no for an answer and basically starts stalking her. Who is she going to turn to for protection other then Toryn. Then she finds out that she isn’t even human and there is a reason that she was being stalked and why Toryn is even in her life. Can she accept the reality of what and who she is and can she forgive Toryn for deceiving her all these years? Toryn was sent to watch over and protect Isa. He did not expect to fall in love with her and with his past he does not think that he is good enough for her. But he befriends her and they do become best friends however he does the same thing that Isa does. Get either girl or guy night after night to try and keep himself from going after Isa. With him being fae he cannot be intimate with her or else it will start her awakening and it is not time for that and she has no idea who or what she really is. When she is in danger and things start to spiral out of control he gives in to his feelings. But can he keep her safe from those that want to use and hurt her and can she forgive him for his years of deception? My Opinion: Once again another great book from Brandy L. Rivers! I highly enjoy her books and this one was no different. We are first introduced to Isa and Toryn in book 1 and I knew that their story would be coming soon. I personally could not put the book down. And of course there was some yummy, steamy sex scenes. I’m sure that we will be seeing more of these two in books to come. I am highly anticipating the next book in the series. There are a few possibilities from characters that we are introduced to I personally hope to see a book where Mike finds someone soon but I will be happy with whoever has their story next! Since the first book I have read of Brandy’s I have become a huge fan! It can be read as a stand alone but I do recommend reading book 1 first. 'Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews'

*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. OMGEE!!!! Brandy L Rivers never ceases to amaze me with her work. I love each book more than the last!! Isadora screams sex appeal and I am surprised Toryn was able to control himself as much as he did! Isadora is a Princess who was sent to the Earth Realm to protect her from people that would hurt her, and Toryn was sent to watch after her.... They have this initial pull from the beginning and even though they both fight it- they are totally for each other. When it becomes apparent that someone is trying to force her to awaken too soon... Toryn must do what he can to protect her, but he finds she isn't so fragile and has some tricks of her own up her sleeve! This is a hot hot book, and you will read it in one sitting like I did! I love how Rivers is able to weave all of her previous characters in and out of the continuing books. It's never a dull moment and always an entertaining book. You wont want to wait to get your copy!!!  ~Dowie

Isa is probably what most people would deem a slut when all she is really trying to do is banish the one man she can’t have from her mind. Oh yeah and she’s a Fae and doesn’t know it and th4ey are highly sexual beings. Toryn has been sent to Earth from Fairie to watch over and protect the Fae princess what no one anticipated was his falling in love with her at first sight and only continuing to fall the longer they are in each other’s company. Isa wants Toryn like she has never wanted another man but he is off limits because he is batting for the other team and is also her best friend. When Isa is out on the prowl one night she is confronted by a very bad man. There are things going on in Isa’s life that she is not even aware of. People want to kidnap her, force her awakening and then use her as a tool in their twist and sadistic ways. Toryn will do anything in his power to keep Isa from those things. When Toryn finally revels the truth of not only who he is but also who Isa is and what his true role in her life is will she be able to forgive him? Will Isa finally get through Toryn’s walls and gets him to not only admit his feelings for her but to believe that she feels the same? Will Toryn be able to keep himself and Isa safe as well as all of those she loves when there are so many people after her? Will Toryn and Isa even be able to stay together when all is said and done? Or will those who want her tear them apart forever?

Isa and Toryn have been friends for a long time. She has always wanted more but thought he wasnt interested. Toryn has a secret he has been keeping from the girl he is head over heels in love with but is only supposed to be guarding. When Isa gets attacked and secrets get revealed, will the truth break them apart or finally put them where they belong...in each others arms? Things are not always what they seem and what is a girl supposed to do when she finds out her whole life has been a lie? Well if your Isadora, you have smoking hot sex with your bestie and you take the bull by the horns and deal! This is my favorite Brandy Rivers book so ( which is saying alot since I love everything she writes! ) A definite must read!

Another awesome read from this author. I have read every book in these two series about the others and they just keep getting better. I realize that series have to end but I hope this one doesn't for a while yet because I can't get enough of them. I love the Others and I love this authors writing. This particular story was so captivating I couldn't put it down. Isadora is so powerful and needs him to be her knight, he too is strong, together they are awesome. I loved how they loved one another yet didn't realize the other loved them back but when they realized it they embraced it. These stories aren't just romance they're stories with action, mystery, some humor, basically they have everything I love in a good read.

Isadora is a princess in hiding but has no idea about who she is or where she is from.  Her parents had sent her into hiding to protect her from those that would want to harm her or control her and her powers.  She has not had an easy life but had survived and become stronger.  Through all the years Toryn her BFF has been there by her side, protecting and running interference when needed to keep her safe.  He is always there when she needs him but the way she needs him doesn’t seem to be the way he feels toward her.  He has endless women and men in his life so Isa has no choice to find men to feel the empty place in her heart with one night stands.   Toryn was sent to the Earth Realm to protect Isadora.   He was to keep her safe and unaware of who she really is and what is planned for her by her father and his henchmen.  Toryn has loved Isa since the moment he first laid eyes on her but he has a job to do and it does not include a relationship with Isa.  He has tried everything to keep her at arm’s length but it is becoming harder to keep him from claiming her as his.  Things are changing; someone is trying to speed up Isadora’s awakening and this cannot happen until she is ready. Will he be able to protect her from those that want to take her and use her for their own agenda?   Finally Isadora’s eyes are opened to her real life and what is expected from her family.  Her best friend is now her other half and it feels right.  But there are so many questions that need to be answered and the answers are vital for the survival of Toryn and Isa.  Will they be able to stay ahead of those that are after them?  Who is responsible for trying to take Isa?  Will she find and master her powers before it is to late? Hero –Toryn Flame: 4 stars Heroine –Isadora: 4 stars Steam: 4 stars  Plot: 4 stars  Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is a perfect book for those readers that love paranormal.  It has others, travel in different dimensions, a princess in hiding, her BFF protector, dragons and evil beings that want to control everyone and everything.  True love conquers all and finds HEA!  What’s not to love? Would I recommend this author: Yes! If you are a lover of paranormal romance with a twist this is the author for you!  Her books appeal to readers that want to experience not just great romance but also mystery and drama.  Her heroines are strong alpha women and her males are hot, sexy alpha protectors. ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

I loved this book and Toryn is sweet and protective. He is also in love with his best friend Isa and he can't tell her because of who they are but what will happen when danger and the ttruth is revealed! What will happen when Isa reveals her own feelings for Toryn? Isa's world is about to be altered and secrets revealed! I loved the chemistry and the connection between Toryn and Isa, their bond is strong but will it be strong enough to get through whats to come! Definite must read!
