TOUCH OF SMOKE BY: KARISSA LAUREL
Touch of Smoke - Karissa Laurel

"A girl doesn't fall in love with the devil and come away unscarred... "

 

Well I'm officially a goner, Karissa Laurel has done it again. I'm over the moon for Owen and Rikki. TEAM OWKI 4 LIFE.

 

Owen definitely brought the heat, but he was actually very sweet too. I appreciated how endlessly patient he was with Rikki. He was a take charge kinda guy but he always let Rikki set the pace and call the shots. It was refreshing. I feel like so often you see that Alpha male type be overbearing and constantly pushing against the emotional walls that the women construct. Not Owen. He was clear about his feelings and desires but totally content to prop a smouldering elbow against the wall with a smirk and let Rikki decide when she was going to let him in. Owen had his secrets though and they were searing.

 

 

 

 

Rikki was pretty awesome too. I respected her drive. She had goals and determination and when she set her sights to something she was going to make it happen. I think Rikki and Owen together is one hell of a force!

 

 

 

 

I absolutely LOVED the preternatural element in this novel. It's something I truly haven't read much about before and it had me totally captivated. That ending was equally awesome and torturous. Laurel turned up the heat to scorching and I need more. SO. MUCH. MORE. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

A Well Written Romance With a Para-Twist
Touch of Smoke - Karissa Laurel

An intelligent romance with a paranormal twist and wonderful well developed characters. A romance, with characters that I couldn't help but love. Owen, he's ex military, looking to settle down in a small town after a long tour. He meets a local girl Rikki, a hard working goal orientated woman, with dreams beyond the town. They click, a romance begins but that is only a small part of the story. Nothing was predictable, the plot, the characters, the outcome. 

What a ride ! The story was a slow build, the author laying crumbs along a twisted and unexpected road. Oh the feels, I had them all. I speculated through the whole book and I didn't figure out what the mystery was till it was handed to me. Seriously, I read a lot, it's hard to find fresh and new twists, this one surprised me.  I was sad to see it end, I wanted more of these characters, their story their love. I have read this author's work before and am a fan, she topped her previous work with this one. This is her best work so far. Bravo Ms. Laurel. 

This would make a fabulous movie !

 Oh Owen. No. These bread crumbs have led me someplace I don't want to believe. It can't be real. It didn't happen that way right ? No I must believe there is a different view I must
