Standalone/Series: Discord's Desire #1
How I got this book: ARC from the author
Cross a satyr, a siren, and an incubus with rock and roll, and you get Discord’s Desire, a band of panty-dropping hellions whose live shows incite orgies. Of course, their booking manager, Liz O’Brien, gets saddled with the monumental task of keeping the boys in line. She’s not your average chick, resistant to glamour of the fae and fame variety, which only makes her more tempting to their lead singer, Kieran Blackmore. With his incubus charms, silken voice, and GQ looks, he could have any girl he wants—except Liz. She doesn’t do serious flings, and she’s determined to keep things professional.
However, when Kieran’s brother sends hitmen after the band, Liz discovers others with her abilities—hunters, who just declared themselves enemies of the fae. Liz leans on Kieran for support, who proves his dedication at every step. Fae mercenaries might attack post-show, but Liz has her Beretta to handle that. What terrifies her more than any monster chasing after them is how she’s falling for Kieran. Her deep feelings trigger every ‘run-away’ sensor in her foster kid handbook, and worse, with war brewing between the hunters and the fae, their love can only end in heartbreak.
I love a good paranormal romance (and I haven't read one in a little while), so when I received an email from the author offering an ARC, I loved the sound of the synopsis and decided to read it straight away.
I enjoyed this book from the start and literally flew through it. I read it in two short sittings and just devoured it.
The characters are fun, and the pace is great, making it easy to fall into and at no point did I feel bored or start losing interest.
It's a light, easy romantic read with plenty of plot and character tension. The continuous action is delivered in the form of various monsters, creatures and hellish exes that are thrust into the bands' path, and I particularly like the creepy sea creature.
Liz is the heroine of the story. She's feisty, strong, protective of her boys and I love that she's capable of holding her own around these 'more powerful' beings. She's sassy and smart, but with a complicated past and unique abilities that make her an instant target.
"For Liz O'Brien, the monster under the bed was always real."
Kieran is the sexy hero of the story. He's tough, protective and yet at the same time he's sweet and one hell of a flirt. 😍😍😍
The two of them together are incendiary. The constantly building sexual tension makes for a very steamy read that culminates in a lovely, sweet ending.
I love that each band member has a distinct, distinguishable personality and I'm looking forward to each one having their own story in this series.
If you're looking for a romance with a kick that's full of creepy creatures, bitchy exes with claws, sinfully good-looking rock stars and a tough, kick-ass heroine who isn't afraid to step into the line of fire to protect those she cares about, even if she does have trouble accepting affection from others, I'd highly recommend Captivating Melody.
