This book surprised me. I went into this fully expecting a DNF, but I LIKED it! I am pretty picky and have lately been having a very difficult time finishing books I start read. This one kept my attention and I read it is a single day.
In this We have an array of paranormal and mythical type characters: vamps, demons, demigods, witches, gods, and more. I found all the species so awesome and interesting to read about. The romance was one that built with time where trust had to be earned. The characters were unique and I really liked them. There were a few times in the beginning of the book where I had to glance back to refresh my memory of who was who, but that could have (most likely) just been my over abused brain.
Recommended to fans of Kenyon's Dark Hunters and other paranormal romance or urban fantasy with romance.
This was lackluster and the author tried way too hard with the humor, almost as if the author wrote this for the middle grade reader. And it suffered mightily from first bookitis, so there was so much back story and not enough of a coherent present storyline. Since the story itself was only 91 pages and there was a alpha werewolf as the hero, we get insta-lust/fated mates romance on top of the paranormal mystery. There wasn't anything too bad about the story, it just didn't have anything that interested me as a reader.
Charmed Fates is certainly an appropriate name for this newest addition to the Omega Date Diaries. This opposites attract story is both charming and sweet. Indigo has an innocence about him that is oh, so endearing and Aaron is quite the skeptic, but still a likable character. The book is well-written and entertaining. It is a quick read, but there's no shortage of story here as Indigo and Aaron find themselves thrown together, again and again, by an uncanny set of coincidences. While there is some blush worthy steam, this one has a bit more on the sweet romance side than others in the series, but it's just as good and this pair is so good together in spite of their differences. It is part of a series, but each book is a standalone, the only connection being the Omega Date app. All in all, Nightshade has given us another delightful Alpha/Omega tale.
A mother’s love is her greatest power.
Divinity witch, Desiree Sanders has made a lot of bad choices in her life, but trusting the demoness, Samoan should earn her the award for traitor of the millennium. After several failed attempts to set things right, Desiree turns to the dark, sexy Death Demon, Lex for help saving her son and ending the war.
There’s no darker place than the soul of a demon.
Divinity guardian, Alexander, AKA Lex, has hardened his heart and locked away emotions following the betrayal of his mate over three hundred years ago. Until he meets the quiet and beautiful Desiree, and the walls around his heart start to crumble. When she calls him for help, broken and scared, he can’t deny her, and the urge to claim her for his own becomes an overwhelming need.
Trapped in the Underworld as the war between witches and demons escalates, Lex and Desiree must face their pasts and their fears—and open their hearts—if they are to find a way out. Meanwhile, the Divinities in the natural world prepare for a battle that is no longer just dark versus light. If lost, it could mean the end of life as they know it.
Divine Awakening is book four in The Divinities series. The end is here.
This series does need to be read in order. The plot continues throughout the series and each couple we meet, meet up and develop a relationship throughout the books until they get their own.
Divine Awakening starts where Dark Divine ends with Desiree and Lex stuck in the underworld. They must find a way out and join the others to stop the coming apocalypse. I liked Lex and Desiree. She’s looking for her lost son and is grieving; because of the things she’s done to keep him safe and in the process trusted the wrong person. Lex doesn’t want another mate, but can’t help the pull towards his destined one. Things move fast and before you know it we are at the ending battle that will determine the fate of the human world.
Divine Awakening gives us the conclusion of the series. Secrets revealed, family’s coming together, mates finding each other, and more. Things wrap up nicely and everyone gets an HEA.
If you enjoy insta-love and quick fast-paced adventures then this series is right up your area.
Rated: 3.5 Stars
