Demon's Curse (Imnada Brotherhood)

Demon's Curse - Alexa Egan Unfortunately this is one of those books that really didn't work for me. I know plenty of people love paranormal romance by Jennifer Ashley, Jacquelin Frank or Kresley Cole. I'm not one of them, but if you are, don't discount this book because of my very short review.

What went wrong? What you have here is a great promise to deliver, fabulous cover, mysterious synopsis... I was expecting something akin to Firelight by Kristen Callihan, beautiful, Gothic, fairytalish, - what I've got is a jerky, stubborn alpha male, wooden main heroine, tropes upon tropes of classic historical romances and paranormal romances and very little action...

I was bored out of my mind, peeps, and kept skimming the pages to get to the end and be done with the misery. There was absolutely no attraction between Bianca and Mac. They were telling us there was, but they were not showing it, and I think the whole problem with this book is that there is hell of a lot of talk and very little show.

I do not recommend this book, but again, I was the wrong type of reader for it. Plenty of people will find it just fine.
