Series: Bone Daddy #1
Published by Berkley Trade
The first story is Rousseau and Allegra’s story. What is so engaging about this story is the presence of the Loa spirit, Bone Daddy in Rousseau. Bone Daddy is a sexual spirit whose goal is sexual satisfaction. But even Allegra is intrigued by BD, it’s Rousseau that she wants.
As I mentioned earlier, I loved the idea of Bone Daddy, but I found it a little confusing because Rousseau and Bone Daddy are essentially the same person. It was a little hard to distinguish them from one another. But apart from that, I loved it!
Ben Adair is also another character that I loved. From the moment he made his first appearance in Release Me, I knew I’d love his story. Michelle and Ben have both had eyes for one another for a very long time, but they kept themselves at arm’s length.
But with Michelle’s special ability to see spirits, Bone Daddy’s presence seems to be pushing her closer and closer to Ben. I’ll have to agree with BD on this one.Together, Michelle and Ben are electric and I have to say that this story was my favourite of the three.
In this last story, we get caught up on the events in Allegra and Michelle’s life, while also being introduced to one of their friends, Bethany. With her mediocre looks and shy personality, the others can’t believe that BD has set his sights on her, but with Allegra’s wedding on All Saints’ Day, the voodoo spirits can now walk the earth in the flesh.
Overall Impression: Loved the idea, loved the characters and loved the overall magical and sensual darkness that encompassed everything. And the cover is really hot!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
