Adult, Paranormal, Romance
The last thing in the world substitute teacher Olivia Winter was expecting on that frigid afternoon was to meet the man of her dreams, but when Dante James sauntered into her classroom, all bets were off. There was no denying her instant attraction to this sexy, charismatic man, or that the feelings were entirely mutual. And when she is forced to ride out the storm of the year entirely in his care, Olivia has to come to terms with the inevitable - Dante James is the cure her fractured heart has been waiting five long years for, and that some cures are just harder to swallow than others.
4 out of 5 (very good)
The Only Exception is the third book in the Incubus Rising series, but can be read as a standalone. I haven't read books one or two, but this did not have any negative effect on my enjoyment of this book.
This is a fast-paced novella, that nevertheless manages to tell a complete story AND give a satisfactory ending. It starts off with a substitute teacher staying with a 7-year-old girl until she is picked up from school. Even though this was a Paranormal Romance, it was good to see a degree of realism in there too, eg. waiting for authorisation on the school list.
Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt from the reading flow, there are some steamy scenes, plus angst as they try to figure a way to be together. All-in-all, this was a short but satisfying read. Definitely recommended by me.
