around us Instead he kept his eyes trained on mine a slow smirk spreading across his face Do it Don t judge me I can feel your judgement I know I know Iiked a YA fantasy not even in spite of the romance but because of it What is the world coming toI gotta say this right because many people I interact with on Goodreads will not All Seated on the Ground like this book and under different circumstances I would probably be one of them I really don t want any of those I read this because of you and it sucks comments Soet me just say that this book was sold to me as a paranormal romance not a fantasy and I think it was pretty damn thrilling on that front I got what I went in expectingThis kind of Untitled. lovehate sexy banter romance works really well for me I especiallyiked Lou which I think helped the whole thing to be honest Her witty comebacks and refusal to sit down and behave made the story even fun I am fairly certain the main issue for most people will be the world of the novel I m not even sure what it s supposed to be It s some sorta Wiring like France fantasy world where people speak French but it s not exactly France France Yes I know I describe things so well But I don t know what else to say It s a made up world and I don t think we re supposed to say it s France butike psst it s also basically France And it mixes some medieval views on women with modern attitudes just in case you weren t confused enoughBut you know what I didn t really care I had a Against All Odds lot of fun reading it The banter the steaminess even the whole witches vs witch hunters plot held my attention That s the central storyine I won t give away how it happens but Reid is a witch hunter and he is forced by the archbishop to marry Lou who is unbeknownst to him a witch The two of them hate each other but of course things are about to change It s exciting I knew what came next I recognized the faint brush of energy against my skin the familiar thrumming in my earsMagicThen came the screams I do find myself wondering if the seuel can possibly be as good This book drags out the tension through 500 pages which is too Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage long and by the end it s kinda been played out While the witch aspect is somewhat interesting I do not think I want to read another 500 page novel about just that I guess Il seeBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram
