by Tyranni Thomas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Fast Burn, Paranormal RH
Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited
Down and Dirty
Short and far from sweet, it feels more like the opening salvo to a bigger series. A bit disjointed, but intriguing enough to keep reading. Free on KU.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
I brought a demon home from work by accident, and I’m not even sure that’s the worst part of my day.
He says I’m his, like this attachment I got tricked into somehow equates to unholy matrimony. I don’t have time for this shit. I have an atrocious ex who won’t go away, three kids, and a cancer diagnosis to deal with.
I met a guy named Nikki that says he’s a witch, but he can’t get rid of this attachment either. And now irony of all ironies, he’s growing on me too.
Cancer sucks, but coincidentally so does Caine, a vampire older than time itself. He’s the demon’s friend and my only option if I wish to stay on this earth with my kids.
This is book one in a reverse harem series. Recommended for readers over 18
Thoughts on The Crossroads Priestess
Overall, this was a fun, if incredibly short read. The idea behind it is solid, and unique – but the execution and presentation lacked a bit. I’m all for normal flowing speech patterns, but the written word does require a bit more description.
- She’s a nurse in a retirement home, using slang terms that are truly used there.
- Older FMC (at least in terms of PNR books)
- She has 3 kids!! 💕
- Fantastic Cover Art!
- Transitions are seriously lacking.
- Often confusing.
- The writing style is more abrasive than approachable, which suits many, just not me.
- Needs formatting. The first Chapter is double spaced and lined, while the remaining are more familiar to eBook settings.
First Person, Multiple POV
Episodic, this truly feels like a Novella or Serial, though it is not labeled as such.
R to NC-17
Character Age Range
32 to ……?
A decent book that could be better, though it is a fun start to a series with just enough darkness and intrigue to keep you entertained. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
