Every once in a while, I get sentimental. Could be the weather, time of year, or amount of alcohol consumed, but whatever the cause, I always end up skimming through one of my favorite novels. I might read just a paragraph or a chapter or I might lock myself in my bedroom and read the whole damn thing. The time spent with the novel isn’t the important part – the way I feel after I put it back on the shelf is.
Throughout my many years as a reader and the epically humongous amount of books I’ve read, there have been a select few that stick with me. For the next few weeks, I’m going to introduce you to them. Each one has meant something special to me, either because it opened up a door to a new genre or because it surpassed my expectations and showed me a new way to look at the paranormal world.
This week’s novel is Red by Jordan Summers. It’s a post-apocalyptic dark romance about a military woman and the hairy man beast who wants to eat her in all the wrong ways. It’s not a cozy romance, so it wasn’t a hit in Romancelandia. There are some deliciously erotic scenes, so strict Urban Fantasy fans didn’t know what to do with it. Basically, it was released about five years too early, right before the big melding of the two genres. Consider it the Firefly of literature.
My review is located here: http://www.bittenbybooks.com/2864/red-by-jordan-summers/. What I expect from me – because you KNOW you have to chit chat with me – is simple:
1) Read the review
2) Tell me if you’ve read the book
3) Tell me if you’d LIKE to read the book and why
It’s that easy. No, I’m not hosting a giveway, ya damn vultures. I’m just engaging you. : )
