Touch of the Angel by Rosalie Lario

Book summary: 
After months of no work, interdimensional bounty hunter Ronin Meyers jumps at the chance to locate an incubus who’s using succubi as murder weapons. Faced with deportation to hellish Infernum if he fails, Ronin will stop at nothing to take out the incubus and anyone else involved. Even the beautiful succubus who stole his heart—and nearly his life—during the most mind-blowing hour of his existence.
Night after night, Amara and her fellow succubi are forced to extract special abilities from the strongest Otherworlders for their psychotic master’s growing collection. When the gorgeous angel-demon hybrid she believed to be dead captures her, Amara is both stunned and elated.
But the happily-ever-after Amara’s dreamed about will have to wait. Before she and Ronin can find salvation, they must bring down the madman hell-bent on destroying everything—and everyone—they love. And Ronin and Amara are at the top of his list.
          Upon seeing this cover you probably though this was Glass speaking or writing, if you would like. But nope, it's me. I've fooled you, haven't I? Well, not so long ago I've got the second book in this series for review - Mark of the Sylph and to say it blow me away would be an understatement. Then I saw that Touch of the Angel is about my darlings angles and I couldn't not resist. Maybe I should have.

          But this review will tell you more about me as a reader not why should or shouldn't you pick up this book. Well here is the thing - after reading Mark of the Sylph I was blown away with the whole concept. In this world we have brothers (the covers describe them physically) but who are also halves - meaning that they're half demons and half other creatures. What's there not to intrigue you about a half-demon and half-angel creature. The whole idea still seems great to me and I enjoyed discovering new creatures and races in this novel only it wasn't as remarkable as the first time. Still that part of the book was really interesting, sadly it wasn't in focus.

         Now we get to the real problem for me - adult part of the story. It's not that it's gross or anything - I have read worse trust me, but the problem is - it's boring mostly. That's the issue I have with many adult novels - we fight the bad guys let's get more action, different kind though. You discover something important - time to celebrate, you know the way. It's something in book that people mostly love. But once I again I'm far from most of the people. It becomes boring to me. It loses that spark or the emotion and turns into action - steamy action.

         I believe that lovers of adult paranormal novels will adore this book. Ranin is a macho man you cannot resist and Amara is both strong but at times weak girl you can easily connect with. The whole world around them is dangerous and you get plenty of action (both kinds) and it's also mysterious. It has all you could ask for.

Rating: 3 stars.

Until the next time,

  1. I don't think this one is for me and, frankly, these covers turn me off rather than draw me in. I'm not a fan of covers that market only to one gender, but thanks for the honest review, Tanja!

    1. Yeah it's usually the same for me, but the first book really surprised me. Thanks, Keertana :)

  2. LOL, I know - I couldn't believe when I saw that you had read this.:)
    I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it that much, but there a lot of books that will be much better choice for you that this.

    1. It happens, as you can see ;)
      LOL, I'm not sure we think about the same type of books ;)

  3. Gah, I am sorry this one didn't blow you away like the other one. It is always disappointing when it works out that way.

  4. It never hurts to give something new a try! Sorry you didn't like this one as well as the other. That is a sexy cover.
    Nice, fair review, Tanja!

  5. Haha yes my first thought was that this one of Glass' reviews. I mean look at those abs. :D
    I'm a sucker for stories about succubi, so this book is very tempting to me. But you mentioning a lot of 'action' got me disinterested. I think I got sex-in-books overload. As you said, most of the scenes are boring to me and I am skimming through them...

  6. Sorry this didn't work for you, Tanja. You're right, I thought this was Glass' review at first, lol! It does sound like it might appeal to me, I love romantic suspense novels. Great honest review. :)

  7. You are a mind reader, dude! I actually thought this will be Glass' review when I saw the cover but I saw you sign it off and I was like- woah! You got us all there, Tanja. I like the idea of a half-demon half-angel creature but I'm not a huge PNR fan myself and like you, sometimes I get bored of that kind of celebration too. I'll let J know about this series, have a feeling she'll like it. Awesome review!

  8. I was surprised it was you reviewing this, I love paranormal romantic suspense and I am curious if it was the book or you because I don't typically find them boring, unless something is missing..I like the half-demon concept. Great, honest review.
