A prominent art restorer, Felicity is more than game to help a friend track down an obscure statue in Montreal. But when “Fil” finds it, she’s taken by surprise at how drawn she is to this statue. Attracted to it in a way a girl shouldn’t lust for a stone gargoyle, she revists it at night, longing to feel its embrace. Little does Fil know, her desire for this stone cold beast is about to heat up a notch.
Locked in stone for centuries, Spar has slept, waiting for when a human would need him. When he is awoken, Spar is taken aback to find that a human female needs his help. A very sexy woman who’s about to be the victim of a cultist attack. Saving and leaving her should be no problem. But as more questions arise, Spar knows that he cannot rest until Fil is safe in his arms
This one started out alright but then quickly lost my focus. Could be the recent trauma in my life or it could be that I’m just not into this series. I struggled to finish this book and in the end I can’t remember much of what happened as I focused more on the chores I was working on than the plot of the book. I think this might be where I leave this world and look for one that works better for me.
Like I said I barely remember what happen and did not connect with either of the lead characters in this title. The domineering over-protective alpha male got on my nerves and the whole drama about I’m falling for him but we can never be together and I’m going to mourn his absence forever really got on my nerves. I think it is time to try another genre until I can get my head out of this funk. Romance is just a bit too much for my current patients level. Perhaps a good sci-fi or adventure fantasy will pick my mood up. My current mood is just too dark and the happily ever after crap isn’t working for me. Maybe a good dystopian.
Anyway, I did finish the book though so I didn’t dislike it enough to DNF it was simply poor timing I think. I did like how the heroine was a bit darker in this story but that’s about it. The narrator was also a bit too much for me to handle and when she attempted to do an American accent for Chicago that made me want to facepalm I knew if I continued this series I would be reading it instead of listening.
So please excuse my poor attitude, it really wasn’t an awful book just not what I was in the mood for. I simply don’t care to find out what happens next though so I won’t be continuing this series. I do plan to check out other books by Ms. Warren as I do think she is a good author.
