Genre: Paranormal Romance
Rating: 3/5 stars
I received a free ebook in exchange for an honest opinion.
About this Book:
One touch of Spectra’s fingers leaves the predator Bay craving more.
Spectra is a Balance; a decedent of angels whose soul has been intertwined with that of sorcerer Alexander, although her heart belongs to Mercury, the son of an archangel.
Bay is a predator de Sang and sorcerer, who runs his own private security company, fighting the purist organization Essence. Seeking out Spectra for her special abilities the last thing he expected to find was a Balance strong enough to withstand his potent energy. With her heart and soul already claimed, could there be room for another in her life?
When Bay’s infatuations bring Spectra to the attention of Essence and put her life at risk, he must learn that sometimes sacrificing the ones you love is the only way to save them.
Spectra is a conflicting read for me. I loved that I finally found one novel with an open end relationship and Polygamy (and it is not portrayed to be wrong) which is awesome and unique in itself.
I understood and liked the ideas of sorcerer’s having a balance and yeah Spectra’s character as well.
But.. This book focused too much on the relationship and erotic scenes than it did on the plot line and that I did not enjoy. I would have liked more about those supernatural creatures, and a huge premise build up with a complicated plot.
But what turned out is a simple paranormal romance that’s a good enough one time read.
I understood the toxic relationship between Spectra and Alexander.. And the need for that real relationship between her and Mercury.
Well then Bay comes and complicates things. He’s a predator.
She does not like their kind.
Yet. Things turn out different than what is expected. It is not a story of power struggle and all these men trying to dominate her. Which in turn makes her a strong character who can make her own decisions but is also moved by her basic feelings and desires.
In the end I just have to say I liked this book but it’s not something incredible or mind blowing. You can have this for some light entertaining read but don’t expect too much from it.
