Josiah Reign is an up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter who’s never said no to a fight in his life. Tonight is no different. Out for a simple jog, he happens upon a young woman who needs help. So Josiah does what he does best. He takes on her attackers…all five of them, in fact. Little does Josiah know that this one-act of goodwill will introduce him to a very strange world, a world of dreams…and nightmares. For this woman, Lena, is not who she seems, and her friends are the stuff of legends. Worst yet, Josiah finds himself falling for not one, but two of these deadly creatures of the night. And as Josiah suffers a devastating loss that rocks his world, he will fight forfor what he believes in. And fighting is what Josiah does best.
Do not skip this book over because of this cover. If I was the author, I would pick a cover that is less TrueBlood and more true to the story. Just saying. The cover is kinda (well a lot) misleading. If the author reads this…..PLEASE CHANGE THE COVER!!!! Now that is out of my system, let’s get to my review.
I loved the fact that an author actually went and used MMA as part of the story. In all of the books that I have read, I haven’t seen MMA even remotely used as part of a story line. So huge kudos to the author (and it almost makes up for the cover).
Now the paranormal part of the book was pretty cut and dry. I also liked that Josiah was basically kept in the dark the whole book about the shapeshifters/vampires. And when I meant kept in the dark, he kinda knew what was going on but refused to believe when Lena and Yari spilled the beans. Only when Atticai attacked him, did he start to believe.
The love story part of the book really wasn’t there. At least to me, it wasn’t. He was sleeping with Yari, wanted Lena and kinda ended up with both. But no real expressions of undying love was made by him. To him, yes.
The book ended very abruptly. Very. But it did lead into the 2nd book, which seems to be Tommy’s story.
So, will I read this again? Sure. I might read the 2nd book too.
