Synopsis: Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth.
Kai's duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it.
Females? They're drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.
Though the two of them mix like oil and water, Kai senses that beneath Brooke’s frosty exterior hides a vortex of simmering passion. He’s determined to thaw his ice princess.
Forced to work together in the immortal realm, they track a rogue Lash demon at the helm of a widespread kidnapping operation. All too soon, Kai’s dark past catches up to them. Time runs out as a second enemy, bent on revenge, vows to stop at nothing short of Brooke’s enslavement and Kai’s death. As they and their foes stalk each other in a demonic game of cat-and-mouse, will her evolving skills and their fledgling bond be enough to save them?
My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book in a new paranormal romance series, and it is just as amazing as the first. I was first introduced to Brooke and Kai in book one when it was obvious something was up with them.
Enter: book two and they just can't be in the same room with each other. Brooke hates Kai's presence and thinks he's a conceited, pompous jerk....well, with the first words out of his mouth, I wouldn't blame her! Kai's confused by his attraction to her, and does some knee-jerk reactions that include some open-mouth-insert-foot scenarios (including the above-mentioned). However, the attraction between them is irresistible and when they are forced into a partnership going to Torth, the sparks end up flying.
I love how Brooke is so eager to learn about her powers, to extend them and control them as much as possible, willing to learn and take chances. Kai is a major Alpha male, with a very painful slave past to deal with. He's very much a Spartacus-like figure, escaping from the Gladiator-like prison and becoming a hero-like figure to the general populace of Torth. When they finally come to accept their attraction to one another, its nothing short of phenomenal.
In this book, we see another part of Torth, which is fast becoming one of my favorite worlds with the vastly different environments and species.
If you love paranormal romance series, this will definitely not disappoint you!
