Scorn Fate and she’ll bitch slap you back.
The Faustin Bros., Book 2
The damned will be sucking snow cones in hell before Gregor Faustin succumbs to love and marriage. Or so he thinks. Until he ploughs his BMW straight into destiny. Madelena, with her smart mouth and her luscious ass, her old-man wardrobe and pointed questions, affects him like no woman he’s ever met. Gregor can’t decide if he’d rather throttle her, suck every sweet drop of blood from her body, or lock her in a room and make love to her until they both die of exhaustion. The only answer—stay far, far away.
Maddy begs the man who ran her over to keep her out of the hospital. In answer, he heals her with a kiss that leaves her haunted by erotic, soul-stealing dreams. But she’s got too many problems to risk what’s left of her heart on any man.
Gregor would like nothing better than to pull his usual disappearing act, but he finds himself entangled with Maddy in a way that goes beyond obsession. By tasting a few precious drops of her blood, he’s bound his life to hers. Now both their days are numbered.
There is just something about a romance…especially paranormal romance that can be funny and witty. I love the playfulness between Gregor and Maddy, it was so natural and so real. It seemed as though they were meant to be together…
I love when the characters seem like real people and they seem like what is happening on the pages with one another is actually happening before your eyes. I guess I shouldn’t give props to the characters alone, but the author as well. Ms. Byrne has written a compellingly witty and charming story. It’s as if she really knew these characters inside out.. They had flaws, but their flaws make them seem real and perfect to a readers eyes.
I can’t wait to read more in this series. It’s something I think every paranormal fan will absolutely love. And if you haven’t read an Evie Byrne novel…shame on you. Come on now, stop reading this…Bound by Blood is waiting for you!
