Down and Dirty
This book hints at common mythos and fairy tales while rewriting the core of it and creating a whole new world – is it the past? The future? Who knows? And frankly, with the way this story flows – you won’t really care. Its great and should find its way to your Kindle ASAP!
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
He abducts me to find his fated mate, unaware that I am she.
I am Freyja, the First Witch. I was born with a cruel curse: anyone I touch with my bare skin will die an agonizing death. That is, until a formidable, drop-dead gorgeous Dragonian prince invades my forest home.
The prince’s lust burns hot and bright for me, yet he resists, wanting his destined witch more. The oracle promises the witch will be his true queen and bring him the greatest kingdom on Earth. Knowing he’s the only man who can touch me, I crave his scorching caress. But I’ve sworn never to reveal that I am the witch. Not until he chooses me above her.
When the mating frenzy drives both of us to the brink of insanity, someone has to give, but it won’t be me.
I read an excerpt of this book awhile ago, wanted to read it then somehow forgot it in the wealth of recommendations. Fortunately, I found it again. This book weaves deceit, magic and myth in a delicate dance that hints at truth even as it taints both the reader and the characters.
First Person, Single POV
- Flows incredibly well.
- Well written.
- No editing issues, at all.
- Character development is on point.
- We learn as they do.
- Mysterious World building.
- Bit too short.
- This book begs for some multiple POV – I really wanted to know what he was thinking!
Thoroughly enjoyable and perfect escapism – a 4.5 star read suitable for fans of fantasy, Angels, Merlin or fated-mates. Which, btw, they might be fated mated, but there is none of that insta-love here…. just a whole bunch of snark, tension and reluctant lust!
