The first book in the Credence Curse series is an engaging and intriguing book. I enjoyed it very much, but there are some parts of it that I was disappointed with.
The chemistry between the hero and heroine, Knox and Storm leaps off the page and grabs the readers’ attention and the sex scenes between the two are hot and steamy giving you shivers as read them. The reader gets completely caught up in the battle of wills between the couple as Storm fights the attraction and Knox manipulates her into a situation to get what he wants.
And if the emotional unrest is not enough, Stormy and her cousin run into problems trying to run their mothers’ company. The suspense builds as they try to figure out just who the enemy is; the competition, the Others Council, the Credence family curse or some mysterious enemy that no one believes is out there.
The author has created a great paranormal world full of drama and a very intriguing plot. The secondary characters are bewitching and draw the reader deeper into this world, leaving you wanting more.
But there were a couple of things that was disappointing. First the ending of the story was a bit abrupt and leaves us the story with a major cliff hanger. Also, the action with the heroine was involved typical female stupidity. Storm even said that it was stupid, but she done it anyway. I was also somewhat disappointed with the way Knox talked to Storm; some of the language usage came across as demeaning instead being sexy or endearing. I also felt that there were a few areas that could have been expanded upon to give the reader a better perspective. It is good the way it is written, but could have been great.
That being said, I still enjoyed the story very much and I will be looking forward to reading When Lightening Strikes, which I hope will be soon.
