“…it didn’t reach my admittedly high expectations, but, there were lots of aspects of this book that I intrigued me and left me wanting to find out more”
~ Under the Covers

Hugh doesn’t realise when he meets Lilith that he will continue to be fascinated with her for many lifetimes to come. Both are on opposite sides, as a demon Lilith is sent to tempt and trick men into sin and Hugh as a Guardian is there to protect humankind. Their odd almost friendship spans centuries…until Hugh decides to fall and become human again.

Meljean Brook is one of my favourite authors; I love her Iron Seas series, so I decided to try out her Paranormal Romance series, The Guardian. I admit, it didn’t reach my admittedly high expectations, but, there were lots of aspects of this book that I intrigued me and left me wanting to find out more.

First of all, the main reason I didn’t rate this book more highly; I found some of it confusing. I don’t know whether I am just slow, but I found the reasons for some of the characters actions confusing, when it seemed like I should have understood, I feel sometimes further clarity was needed. This confusion left me feeling a little bewildered through out most the book.

But, what I did enjoy was Lilith and Hugh. The star crossed lovers. Lilith was a charismatic heroine, delightfully wicked without crossing the line to evil and Hugh had the strong, silent, stoic thing going on. Together they smouldered. The sexual chemistry and connection between them was great and that is what kept me reading, even when I wasn’t really sure what was happening.

What I also liked about this book, was the world and characters that Brook has created with the Guardians, demons, vampires and humans. I can’t wait to read on and see what is going to happen next and how it is going to develop.

Although this is not my favourite book by Meljean Brook, it is definitely an interesting start to The Guardians series and I look forward to starting the next book.spacer

About Meljean Brook

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.

Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
