Sometimes I’m just looking for something quick and sexy and, at a glance, this one sounded pretty good. I wanted to try the author and I love paranormal elements so it was with a little eagerness that I picked this one up. Then I started reading and was thrilled with the blend of fae mythology and the build up of passion between the main characters. I loved how the story line was fleshed out as was the back story even though this is a shorter read.
Peyton, divorced and dealing with the recent passing of her mother, has decided to take some time out to think on her future from the back of her bike on a road trip. Before that can happen, she’s having her bike serviced by the delectable motorcycle mechanic who has starred in several of her more lust-filled fantasies. He’s younger and has had any woman he wanted so she knows he would never be interested in a cougar like her, but a gal can dream, right?
Ian spotted Peyton the first time she entered the motorcycle dealership and was pleased to see her sneaking as many looks at him as he was at her. For the first time, he was interested in something more than a quick encounter. Unfortunately, that was all he could ever have with a human. On this night though, things begin to happen to make him wonder. Fae magic awakens and the Wild Hunt has returned. Maybe Peyton isn’t as human as she seems?
So I got a much better experience than I was expecting. And that is all explained by the presence of a delicious hot tattooed and pierced flirtatious fae biker who rang my bell right along with Peyton’s. The heat between Peyton and Ian was off the charts and it was fun being along with them as things progressed to the hot and magical culmination of their night. I liked both Peyton and Ian at least what I learned of them in the time I had. I was intrigued by the other members of The Wild Hunt. The pace was fast, but steady and, though rapid, it still laid the ground work as it went so there was a story to read with tension and conflict and resolve. It had an ending, but still had an open-ended feel to it that promised there is more which is fine because this is a series.
In the end, I score this one a clear win for giving me what I wanted and then some. I liked the author’s writing and will definitely be going back for more of her stuff including this series when it continues. Those who want a quick, hot paranormal read with a decent story line should give this one a try.
